Hooray it is almost the weekend! I will be away from this evening on a hen weekend and I’m rather excited. I will hopefully get some time to do some sightseeing whilst at the city as I’ve never been there before – all will be revealed in another post I’m sure!
In the meantime today’s post is about another mask from Miss Patisserie, this is the Mineral Mud Mask.
The Mineral Mud mask is for drawing out impurities from skin and dealing with excessive oil, so is perfect for those of us with that oily T-zone.
Key ingredients include dead sea clay, kaolin clay and red clay, all of which are well known for helping with oily skin. It also contain Spearmint oil and Mandarin orange oil so you just know it smells good!
All you need to do is use around half to a full tablespoon of the product and mix it with water to create the mask. I’ve seen lots of ideas of mixing them with other things such as lemon juice or milk depending on your skin type which is a good idea, but not one that I have yet tried so can’t comment on it. Lemon juice is supposed to be amazing for brightening though so that would be a great addition to this mask for a double whammy!
You simply make the paste and leave it on for 20 minutes, easy peasy!
So what does it look like on, and how does it feel?
You can see the image below for how it looks, it does dry on your skin so it can feel your skin tighten with it on so that’s one thing to note if you’re not a fan of that.
I don’t mind it as long as I don’t use them all the time, and just find that I need a really thick moisturiser or oil to rehydrate my skin afterwards.
It washes off really easily and my skin is definitely less oily afterwards. I don’t suffer with spots like I used to, probably due to a more extensive skincare routine and also I’m getting old!
My skin needs hydration a hell of a lot more than before but still gets oily, using this once or twice a week has helped a lot and in between I pile on the serums, oils and moisturiser to solve all my skin issues.
I’ve previously written about the Walnut Stone Face Mask (link here) which you can read if you like, and I wrote that it was difficult to use the powder to form the paste with my hands. I also purchased the bamboo spoon this time and can say it is definitely worth the £1.75 it costs for a perfect 0.5 tablespoon measure without making a mess! I’d recommend getting this too.
The Mineral Mud Mask costs £7.70, and the Bamboo Spoon £1.75. Have you tried any of Miss Patisserie’s masks before? Do you have any other favourite products from her?
I’m a huge fan, slowly but surely buying my way around the store! I’d love the try the Facial Oils next, I’ve heard great things!
