InstaNatural Dead Sea Mud Mask Review from Amazon swatches

I'm not sure about you guys, but I am always up for a good ol' face-mask as a refreshing treat to take away the wear and tear from a long day. Like a lot of other people, I love using the mud-packs often on a 3 for 2 offer at Boots but recently I have felt that my skin is in need of so much more during these harsh winter months. 

When I received this InstaNatural Dead Sea Mud Mask* though the post, I was taken aback by the huge size. It comes in a 19oz (539grams) so you really do get more bang for your buck. It made me instantly warm to the product as I love things that you don't have to use sparingly in fear of it finishing as soon as it begins to work! It also comes in a lovely sturdy tub that gives you peace of mind that its not going to fall apart any time soon, making it perfect to place alongside your tubs of body butters and creams you having laying about. 

When I went to open the product, I was glad to not be overcome with a strong scent, which I was actually expecting. Instead, it doesn't really smell of anything (those with a strong sense of smell may discover a hint of smell but not to worry because its not at all bad!). 

I was on the safe side when using this because I actually read the instructions before hand to find out more about the product as I hadn't actually done much research before receiving it. I discovered that it can be used for all over the body, not just the face as I originally presumed, which makes it a really great multi-tasking product as theres not much out there concerning mud-masks for your body. I also found that it is recommended to be used maximum once a week, so its not one to turn to regularly when your skin needs a little refreshing. 

Here's a little description from InstaNatural's Amazon page for more information:

  • 100 Percent Natural / Best Value - Our Dead Sea Mud Mask is made from PURE Dead Sea mud to ensure the highest-quality product. Our formula is all-natural and arrives in a huge 19 oz. jar to deliver premium value.

Men, women and teens with skin issues can seek help by using this natural remedy.
  • Great for Acne and Blemishes – This detoxifier and purifier comes from the renowned and sacred Dead Sea, which is known to contain many minerals beneficial to the skin, such as magnesium, sodium and bromine. These elements work to extract excess oil & dirt from the skin and purge blemishes.
  • Manufacturer Guarantee – InstaNatural is proud to back their products with a 100 Percent Satisfaction Guarantee Policy, no matter where you buy our products. If you are not completely happy with your purchase, please contact us for a refund – no questions asked.
  • Age-Defying Benefits – Using this facial mask once a week also helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Applying the mask will improve your skin so you can achieve a more even skin tone and smoother complexion.

As you can see, there are so many benefits from the product and I couldn't wait to use it to see what sort of miracle it would do for my skin. I applied a little on my arm (for testing, as seen in the picture above) and then I applied a thin layer onto my face using my fingers. It was so easy to apply, although it was a bit weird at first scooping the product out straight from the huge tub using only my fingers, especially with its jelly-like texture which I expected to be more mud-like. However, since it said to apply only a light layer, I found that in doing so it was really easy to spread evenly over my skin in a light layer. 

During the 10-15 minutes I left it on for, as instructed, I found the product to be stiffening on my face which I found a little alarming at first. It was all good though as after seeking advice from my mum, who said thats what happens with some face-masks, I just sat back and waited for the time to be up. I found the taking off of the face-mask (which I did using water and massaging in circular motions) to be quite relaxing, probably because I could finally make facial expressions that didn't make me look like a zombie! 

The result was amazing. My skin instantly felt clean and detoxified, making me look more fresh as soon as I took off the mask. However, as my skin is quite dry anyway, it did make it feel tight and slightly uncomfortable until I slathered on moisturiser to replenish the skin a little. But even afterwards, I found that my complexion look brighter and I felt like I had fresher looking skin.

If you're looking for a face mask that is going to pamper you and nourish your skin, then I would probably wouldn't use this one. But every not and again, your skin needs a deep clean and I think that this is the perfect thing to do the job. It feels like it gives a thorough clean to the skin, probably helped by the 100% natural ingredients, and can bring your skin back to life. Whats great is that you can use it for anywhere on your body! Because it is quite powerful, I would be careful with just how often you use this and also do make sure that you moisturise straight after to nourish your skin and close your pores to avoid any irritation. I hope to be using this a lot more often and will keep you updated if I continue to enjoy this product as much as I do now. 

At £21.95 from Amazon, it is quite pricey compared to other masks in the drugstore but you definitely get value for your money with the large tub and the little amount you need to use for every application. I would certainly recommend this product, especially if you suffer from problematic skin that you feel like needs a good cleansing. Do remember that it is a 'detoxifier' so you have to use it with care, looking after your skin before and after application. You can find out more here

  2. Thanks for sharing! Having the word 'dead' in the name doesn't exactly make a product seem appealing but this one looks pretty good!
