Epoch Mud Mask | Review

I was sent the Nu Skin Epoch Glacial Marine Mud Mask due to winning 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.

    I’m literally the complete opposite to a girl when it comes to using products like these!! I never buy them but always wish I did! This sounds cool though!

    This looks like a good mask to help draw out all the impurities! I need to get back on the face mask hype, I go through phases of not using them then complain when I have bad skin!

    Oh I love a good face mask! Might have to try this one out. I love when you can see them drying and bringing the rubbish to the surface x

    I LOVE a good clay mask! They really do bring all the impurities right out of your skin. The Body Shop seaweed clay mask is another good one to try! (And doesn’t smell like paint haha)

    Scent is a big thing to me when it comes to facial products of any form, so I think the ‘acrylic’ smell would be enough for me to pass over this one!

      Ah that’s fair enough Britt, smells like that can be off-putting.

    I am obsessed with Face Masks and can’t believe I haven’t spotted this one, will have to keep an eye out for it after reading this! X

      I love it! I’ve started working as a team for the company that sells it if you are interested x

    Love a good face mask! This looks like a good one too. It can be annoying when you use a product for the first time and it brings all your spots up to the surface but keep using it and soon they will disappear 🙂

    As a girl who loves makeup, I always tend to forget about the skincare part. But after your post, it made me want to check out this mask to give my skincare routine some upgrade. Keep it up!

    I love a good face mask but yeah they do bring spots to the surface. I love the Body shop charcoal mask. I am rubbish for using it as regularly as I should though 😂

      Ooh I’ll have to try that one! I’m the same normally haha
