I hardly ever use facial masks. I hardly ever have 15 minutes to spare to use a mask. Today was one of the rare occasions where my husband and I were both off from work, so while he tended to the kids, I had a chance to try out a new mask that I received,

InstaNatural Dead Sea Mud Mask is an all-natural mask made from Pure Dead Sea Mud. It's enriched with minerals that help to extract excess oil and dirt, purge blemishes, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It helps to improve skin tone and when used as a body treatment, it can help to soothe and relieve muscle aches and pains. InstaNatural Dead Sea Mud Mask can be used once a week.

I have never used a mud mask before. So, when I first opened it, I was a little intimidated. The mud mask is dark gray and isn't really pretty to look at.  I put off trying it for awhile, because I was afraid of how my skin would react. It's pretty sensitive.

Here's a shot before I applied the mud mask:

The instructions say to apply a thin layer to your face, avoiding the eyes and lip areas. The mud mask in unscented, so that was nice. It was pretty easy to apply, though I wasn't sure if I was putting on enough. The mud felt cool on my face as I was applying it. Here I am after applying the mask:

You're supposed to leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing it off. After a few minutes, my skin started feeling really tight as the mud started to dry. It was like harder to smile and talk. It was a little weird, but I'm guessing other mud masks are the same way.

I rinsed the mask off after 10 minutes. It was pretty easy to remove. My skin did feel cleaner, though it left my skin feeling kind of dry. I put on my normal facial serum and moisturizer afterwards. 

Would you recommend it?
I would recommend it. It's made me less afraid of trying facial masks. While I didn't notice any immediate benefits, it doesn't hurt to give my skin a deep clean once a week. 

How much does it cost?
A 16-oz jar retails for about $24.97.

Where can I buy it?
It's available on Amazon as well as leading spas, salons and aesthetic centers.
