The brand, which specializes in beauty mud masks for specific aliments recently acquired cult status after being passed around by certain A-listers at award shows.
This seems legit seeing as how the price tag is a bit higher than my non-celebrity salary can afford.
Although I'm sure it would be more cost efficient to buy a full-sized, I didn't want to spend 60$ for a product I've never had a chance to try. So after plunking down 20$ for a .01 oz cup of mud, my buyers remorse was heavier than the packaging.
Upon inspection, I noticed that the mask's consistency was slightly runny and I figured it would be mess to put on, but my brain really started to spin as I scooped out the product to find giant flakes of stuff mixed in with the mud.
It basically looked like someone's little brother scooped up some mud from the driveway after a rain and put it inside the container, leaf bits and all.
So, needless to say this was quite a chore to put on, and I recommend doing so around the sink just in case the flakes decide to go AWAL. I put it on in bed for some reason and it wasn't a good idea, cleanliness-wise.
Once I put it on, things got real. Real painful. I have felt masks that tingle and warm, but this actually felt like it was burning my skin. Now, it was nothing that I couldn't tolerate, but it was still a little bit concerning especially since I hadn't yet seen the results.
After I dried off, what I didn't really notice any difference, but soon after my complexion had a glow. This glow produced was different than any other product I've encountered. This made me look like I had run a mile, and then rested. You know, a really healthy, blood-flowing brightness to it.
I think that the burning sensation, which I'm sure they'd like me to rephrase as 'tingling', caused the blood in my face to recirculate, producing a healthy brightness to the skin.
So this while the mask was initially painful, if there's no pain there's no gain, and I will definitely be gaining the full-sized product as soon as my bank account lets me.
