Over the last few weeks I have had awfully dry, sore skin. It's been red and horrible and peely. Every day I have awoken to bright red skin and it's been horrible. I asked around on every single social network I had available to me and nobody could give me a good product to use to get rid of this sore, dead skin. A lot of people said to exfoliate and use moisturiser often, which is what I was doing, but it wasn't working. I finally gave in and went to Superdrug to pick up some E45 cream but on my way to the skin creme aisle I saw this lifesaving beauty.
This product contains strawberry extract, raspberry seeds and china clay. It promises to exfoliate skin, protect it from free radicals and absorb excess oils from the skin surface. It's a typical mud mask formula with a generous dose of exfoliating beads scattered through it.
I started with a slightly wet face and applied the mask. Rubbing the mask around my face activated the exfoliating beads and after about 5 minutes the mask began to harden on my face. You're meant to leave this on for about 10 minutes, but I left it on for about half an hour just to be safe. I really wanted it to work, I really needed it to improve my skin! Once I was ready to remove it, I did so with warm water and a tea-towel.
And I noticed the difference immediately. After just ONE use, my sore, dry and red skin was gone. In it's place was soft and smooth skin worthy of a babies bottom! The exfoliating beads did a fantastic job of removing the dead skin whilst the mask rehydrated my face.
I was absolutely amazed by this mud mask. It's such a cheap product (around £2.99 - if that) and it works incredibly well. It's becoming a part of my daily routine now to use this and it's made such an improvement on my skin. I really couldn't recommend it enough!
