I love a good mud mask; face masks in general make me feel relaxed and like I'm being pampered so when one actually benefits the skin, it's a winner in my books. I love trying all sorts of face masks but there is something about a mud mask that I'm just instantly drawn to.
I've recently been using the Merumaya Mud Marvels Mask* and I'm so impressed. Merumaya is not a brand I'm familiar with but I've heard it mentioned a few times in the blogosphere. This face mask is powered by charcoal and volcanic ash to deeply cleanse and detoxify the skin. It aims to unblock pores, draw out impurities, firm, smooth and brighten up the skin.
It has quite a thick formula but it applies easy enough, i apply it using my hands and just slather it around my face into a smooth even layer. It recommends leaving it on the face for 15 minutes for it to dry and work it's magic, my favourite thing about this is that you barely feel like you're wearing in, it doesn't go tight on the skin - even though it does dry, it's so smooth and comfortable on the skin.
It does advise you remove it with a muslin cloth but i rebelled a little and just used my hands to rinse it off - it's so easy to remove and the results are instant. My skin instantly looked brighter and softer, it felt really cleansed and hydrated and even my sister instantly noticed a difference.
I'm really impressed with this face mask; it is quite expensive as it retails for £19.50 but it's such a lovely face mask and the results are instant.
Have you tried Merumaya?
