Beauty Essentials Pure Mud Mask Review

I was browsing through Priceline on the weekend and noticed the range Beauty Essentials which is Priceline's home brand (so to speak).  I decided to pick up a mud mask for $4.99.



I have skin on the dryer side and the mask promises to "help repair the appearance of dry or damaged skin.  With it's anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties it is beneficial in promoting a healthy complexion and eliminating impurities."

 
Directions:  Spread a thin layer on clean and dry skin, avoiding the eye area.  Leave on for 10-15 minutes and rinse off with warm water.

The mask has a smooth creamy texture with a pale pink colour.  It spread on really easily and I definitely didn't need the whole amount I had squeezed out (below)




As soon as I put the mask on my skin started to tingle.... a lot.  I don't have particularly sensitive skin but I have had a couple of reactions in my lifetime so I do get a bit nervous.  I've had the tingling thing happen before during a facial and the therapist told me it was completely normal and it was the mask "doing it's thing".  I left this mask on for about 5 minutes which is as much as I could handle.  I rinsed it off with warm water and my skin felt better immediately.  I was imagining a red hot mess under the mask but it was actually fine.  I wouldn't recommend this mask for anyone with sensitive skin or if you hate that tingling feeling but if that's not you then this is a great value mask.  It's not amazing but my skin definitely felt a lot smoother and fresher afterwards (and that was only 5 minutes).

  1. This sounds really nice, my Priceline isn't big enough to carry everything so I haven't seen this brand before.

    1. Oh that's a shame Jac, they are really great value and have quite a large range - I'm also using one of the eye creams at the moment which isn't too bad!
