I was sent the Nu Skin Epoch Glacial Marine Mud Mask due to winning @SparkleBeauty90’s giveaway. Thank you Katie! As it was my first time using this particular mud mask, I decided I would review it.
When I first opened the seal I was surprised to discover the consistency of the product. The solution is thin and runny. I would have expected it to be thicker and more like clay. Therefore, I found that I needed to apply quite a thick layer to my face to avoid patchiness. This means I’d be likely use the product up faster than I use other face masks. Also, as soon as I pulled off the plastic seal, I noticed that the product smells a lot like acrylic paint. This doesn’t bother me too much but it is a perk to have nicely scented masks and for me, acrylic isn’t categorised under “nice scents.”
Once the mask was applied, it dried very quickly but in random patches on my face. As the dry areas were lighter and the wet areas were darker, my face looked like a camouflage pattern.
I left the mask on for around 20 minutes and at that point it had dried fully and gone from dark green to light green. The mask clearly brought all of my blackheads to the surface as you can see in the image above. When I was talking, the areas around my chin started flaking which caused a bit of a mess, so I knew it was time to wash it off.
Washing it away with warm water was very easy and took no longer than a few minutes. After this I patted my face dry with a clean towel and my face immediately felt much softer. However, it has made my spots appear worse because they have all been brought to the surface.
So, there are some negative aspects of this product but mainly positive. It did its job.
I would be likely to use this again, twice a week. Let me know your opinions in the comments below.
