Review of the Glacial Marine Mud Mask
I’ve heard of the Glacial Marine Mud Mask before, and like you I have looked with fascination at photographs of blackheads being ‘drawn’ out of the skin on Facebook by this product. However, like a lot of people, I am wary of the reviews conducted by people who are selling the product because they aren’t always honest. I’d much rather read the review of a person with no ulterior motive, which is possibly why you’re here?
I would like to point out that I am NOT selling any products in the NU Skin range. The Epoch Glacial Marine Mud Mask was a sample that was given to me for free, in exchange for an honest and unbiased review of the product. I will not earn any commission from sales made as a result of this review either, so it is completely impartial.
Where Can I Buy the Epoch Glacial Marine Mud Mask?
What is the Glacial Marine Mud Mask?
The Nu Skin Glacial Marine Mud Mask is a revitalising clay mask which uses over 50 natural minerals and sea botanicals to draw out dirt and impurities from the skin. This natural formula absorbs dead cells, excess oil and other impurities whilst also cleansing, so it leaves the skin looking brighter.
What does the Glacial Marine Mud Mask Contain?
The Glacial Marine Mud Mask contains:
Sea Clay Extract, Aqua, Carrageenan, Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Sorbate, Benzoic Acid, Dehydroacetic Acid.
I can’t seem to find very much information about the natural minerals used in the Glacial Marine Mud Mask which is a shame, because I did want to spend some time examining those properties.
Is the Glacial Marine Mud Mask suitable for all skin types?
From the information that I have been provided, the Glacial Marine Mud Mask is suitable for all skin types. I have combination skin which consists of an oily T zone but very dry everywhere else. I am prone to breakouts and have large pores on my nose and the top of my cheeks. I also have both eczema and psoriasis so I have to be very careful with the products that I use on my skin.
How often should you use the Glacial Marine Mud Mask?
I’d recommend using the Glacial Marine Mud Mask just once a week for a really deep clean.
Review of the Glacial Marine Mud Mask
I was given a small sample pot of the Glacial Marine Mud Mask to try instead of the standard applicator bottle. However, even in the small pot this mud mask has lasted a two weeks and has another application left.
The texture of the Glacial Marine Mud Mask is thick and gooey, just like mud and very easy to apply to my face using my fingers. I found that I didn’t need a lot and that a thin layer gives sufficient coverage of the mask, which begins to harden very quickly. I found that there was a strange tingly sensation for the first few minutes but this did subside.
The mask took 15 minutes to fully harden but I kept it on a little longer, just because it was nice to relax and read with it on. As the mask dried, I could see the excess oil and impurities being drawn out of my face and although it was pretty gross, it was quite impressive. So impressive in fact, that my husband even put a little on his T zone, but refused to allow any photographs – boring!
Removing the Glacial Marine Mud Mask is very simple, it just washes off with warm water. However, a few minutes after washing off the mask, my face became very red and inflamed. The inflammation was so dark, that you could see a bright red outline where the mask had been on my face. I found this really worrying and started to panic.
I contacted Alison and explained my symptoms. She reassured me that this reaction was quite normal, and that the redness would subside after 30 minutes or so, which it did. Once I had returned to normality, my skin looked amazing. It was clear, very smooth and it felt nice and soft.
When I used the Glacial Marine Mud Mask for the second time, I did experience a similar degree of redness and a burning sensation after use. However, this wasn’t as bad as the first time and calmed down within an hour. I also had a pimple and found that the mask had kindly removed all the unpleasant gunk inside that too, without any squeezing.
After using the Glacial Marine Mud Mask, I found that my skin felt soft and my face glowed with health! From the pictures, you can see the difference before and after using the mask and that’s after just one application.
In fact, I was so impressed by the Glacial Marine Mud Mask that I ordered one straightaway. I’ve used a number of face masks and I was really pleased with the results from this product. The only downside is the redness after use. I can only apply the mask before bedtime to ensure that the redness is completely gone before morning.
Although it may seem a little pricey at £25 for 200g, you really don’t need to use a lot and it will last a long time.
Overall, it’s a great product!
