I have always wanted to be one of those girls who sit around with a mud mask on their face, cucumber slices on their eyes and a margarita in their hand. Although yesterday afternoon wasn’t spent quite so leisurely, I did get the chance to try out a sample of Arbonne’s SeaSource Detox Spa Sea Mud Face & Body Mask that I recently received.
Having never tried a mud mask before, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I squeezed out a blob about the size of a teaspoon and started to smooth it onto my face. The mask went on pretty smoothly but, while trying to avoid the wispy hairs around the border of my face, the thinner layers did start to dry so it was hard to get a nice, even layer.
Once the mask was on, I felt pretty comfortable and went about my business for about 15 minutes. My face started to feel tighter and then it started to get a tingling sensation, similar to the feeling of toothpaste on skin. It sounds uncomfortable but it wasn’t; it felt like it was ‘working’. The smell of lavender was pretty potent, even though I can’t see that in the ingredients.
After a while, I ran a washcloth under warm water and started to gently wash the mask off. The first thing I noticed was that my pores were visibly smaller. Everything felt really fresh and, because my pores were smaller, my skin had a more even tone. For the next hour, my skin felt like it was buzzing. A few hours later, my face felt hydrated but not overly so. There was no sign that it was going to leave me with that oily feeling.
Arbonne’s SeaSource Detox Spa Sea Mud Face & Body Mask usually retails for around $45 for an 8-ounce bottle. It’s definitely worth a try and I loved the effect it had on my skin but I’m not sure I would pay that amount of money to do an at-home mask.
