Review: Adovia Purifying Dead Sea Mud Mask

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

Hi folks! Today I've got another skincare product review for you--the Adovia Purifying Dead Sea Mud Mask. This is my second time trying a Dead Sea mud mask (the first time is here). Dead Sea mud is supposed to be great for acne; it clears out your pores like a typical mask, and also gives your skin a dose of beneficial minerals. This particular mask also contains several oils (including evening primrose, jojoba and olive) to keep your skin from drying out, plus aloe, chamomile extract, and vitamin C.

As you can see, the Adovia mask comes in a 150 ml squeeze tube, which should be enough for several months of weekly use. The last mud mask I tried had a very wet consistency, but the Adovia mask is much firmer, similar to a clay-based mask (although it contains no clay). I'm pretty sure it's the added beeswax that stiffens it up. Even though it's on the drier side, it's still very light and applies smoothly, so it's easy to get a thin, even layer on your face. Here's how it looks once dispensed (I know it looks like bird poop here, but it's much nicer than that, trust me!):

I let the mask sit for about 10 minutes until it was pretty much dry. I didn't feel any irritation or itchiness. Upon removal, my skin felt clean and just a little "tight", but of course I put on a moisturizer right afterwards and all was well.

If you've been wanting to try a Dead Sea mud mask, this one is a great choice, as it's currently only $19.99 on Amazon. I'm definitely going to be incorporating it into my weekly routine!

  1. Looks like a good mud mask! I haven't tried much of them so this is something for me to check out in the future then.
