Review: InstaNatural Dead Sea Mud Mask

The product in this post was sent to me for review. All opinions are my own.

Hey gang! Today I have a review of InstaNatural's Dead Sea Mud Mask. I'd heard good things about products containing Dead Sea mud, especially for treating acne-prone skin. All the minerals in the mud are supposed to be beneficial. So I was eager to try InstaNatural's take on it!

This mask claims to absorb oil and dirt from the skin, reduce pimples, and give you a more even complexion. I've only used the mask once (and the jar warns you against using it more than once a week to prevent over-drying), so I can't speak for its long-term effects, but I can give you my first impressions!

First of all, the mask has a different consistency than clay-based masks I've used. It's very wet and applies like a cream. Here's how it looks:

Part of the reason for this must be the other ingredients in the mask. It's all-natural and contains several butters and oils that are great for facial skin, such as shea butter (my fave), jojoba oil, and calendula oil. It also contains aloe vera and hickory bark extract.

I applied the mask all over my face and left it to dry for about ten minutes. I did start to feel some itching as the mask dried. It definitely wasn't some sort of reaction (my skin is not sensitive at all, and I had no redness or irritation afterwards); I think the itching was due to the mask pulling on my skin as it dried.

After removing the mask, my skin felt clean and not dry or irritated at all! Some masks actually make my face more oily the next day, but I didn't have this problem with the Dead Sea mud mask. I'm definitely going to introduce this mask into my weekly routine!

The InstaNatural Dead Sea Mud Mask is available here for just $25.77 for a hefty 16-ounce jar. That seems like a really great deal to me!

  1. Sounds so nice! I haven't really used much mud masks too.

  2. I've never actually tried a facial mask of any kind, but I am looking for new things to dry for my face. Might just add this to the list!
