You know I love a mask and mud one are always top of my list when I need a deep clean. But it has to be the right mud mask. Old school ones cleansed but stripped, which my skin just cannot cope with. The new Merumaya Mud Marvels Mask is brilliant because it purifies but deeply nourishes at the same time. Here’s the lowdown.
Merumaya Mud Marvels Mask Features
- Activated charcoal, volcanic ash, kaolin and bentonite cleanse and detoxify
- Unblocks pores and draws out impurites
- Firms, smooths and brightens
- Natural AHAs gently exfoliate
- Oat Oil & Sweet Almond Oil nourish
- Cocoa Butter supports skin’s lipid barrier
- Improves moisture retention
This really is a gorgeous mask. It glides on to the skin and feels very gentle and calming. As it dries, it doesn’t give that really tight and uncomfortable feeling often associated with mud masks. I left it on for 15 minutes and then used a cleansing cloth to remove whilst in the shower.
Straight after my skin felt super clean yet hydrated and really smooth and soft. I felt like it had instant decongestant effect particularly on the sides of my chin below my mouth. There was absolutely no tight or dry sensation, even before I applied my serum and moisturiser. I also felt my consequent skincare products absorbed my quickly which always seems to be a good sign!
