Clay and Mud Masks - Reviews

I love a face mask and have recently begun to experiment more with clay and mud based masks. These are different to my usual type of mask because they dry hard and can feel quite strange on the face! This is a collective post, reviewing 3 different masks that I have tried.

Amie Spring Clean Cooling Clay Mask* Prices from £1.50



I have tried several Amie skincare products and loved them all. This mask is no exception. This contains 94% natural ingredients and contains organic peppermint, French white clay and lime butter. This mask smells divine. You can really smell the lime and it gives it a gorgeous fresh smell. This is very easy to apply and doesn't go particularly hard when dry. I love the cooling, tingly feel this product gives to your skin. After removing the mask I use a light moisturiser and find this really heightens the cooling tingle. My skin is left feeling super soft and is still noticeably smooth the next morning. This mask comes highly recommended from me. It can be purchased from Boots or from the websitehttp://amieskincare.com/buy-online/spring-clean-cooling-clay-mask/

Live Native Botanic Earth Mud Mask* Prices start at £7.50




Unlike the masks I usually use, this comes as a powder and has to be mixed with water. The sample above makes two masks. The mask contains acai, cacao, spirulina and 23K gold leaf. I used one spoon of the mask mixed with a spoon of warm water and applied it to my face. This is quite a messy business but once on the face it sets well and dries quickly. This smells heavenly! It has a rich cocoa smell and makes you want to lick your face! You have to keep this mask moist throughout which I did by laying a wet cloth over my face after a few minutes. Once washed off my skin felt very soft and the next day was a good base for my makeup. I also love that this is a local company to me, on the isle of skye!

The Herb Jar Toning & Exfoliating Face Mask* £1.40 for sample



This 8g sample is marked as one use however I found it too much for one and halved the mixture. This mask is available for various skin types and I received a sample for normal skin. This contains rosehip and pomegranate extracts. Similar to the last mask this has to be mixed with warm water before applied to the face. It dries very hard and can be a little uncomfortable on the face. I left this for 10 minutes, washed it off and followed it with a sample of The Herb Jar moisturiser. The moisturiser also needs to be diluted with water and leaves the skin really smooth and hydrated. I thoroughly recommend these products if you are interested in natural beauty. These can be purchased from the website http://www.herbjar.co.uk/natural-skin-care-product-samples/face-mask-samples

Have you tried any of these masks?
