I’ve been a bit rubbish with my Mask Monday series lately, and this is mostly because I’ve been reusing old favourites rather than trying anything new. However, a few weeks ago I did give the Pixi Glow Mud Mask a few tries, so I thought I’d share my thoughts on it. It’s worth pointing out that I’m not a huge fan of mud masks at the moment as I don’t really have many breakouts, so there isn’t a big need in my routine for them, but when I do a Triple Threat Facial, I like to include one.
The Pixi Glow Mud Mask is okay. It’s fine. That’s the best way I can describe it as it didn’t blow my mind, nor did it do anything that turned me off; it did it’s job well. It’s lead ingredients are kaolin, sea salt, ginseng and aloe, although I would guess there’s probably a bit of charcoal in there as well. In typical mud mask fashion, you use it by applying a good dollop and leaving it to dry. As it dries, it tightens to suck out any impurities and reduce congestion, leaving skin feeling thoroughly cleansed.
I should give this mask a bit more credit really as it certainly did deep cleanse my skin, and I wasn’t left screaming for moisturiser afterwards either. It did take a bit of effort to remove, but that’s nearly always the case with mud masks. I think I’ve been spoiled by the amazing Glow Mud Cleanser as I honestly can’t think of any specific reason why I’m not loving this mask, it just isn’t getting me all excited like the other Pixi skincare products have. Quick tip, cleanse skin thoroughly and use the amazing Glow Tonic before applying this mask for seriously smooth and clean skin. It’s £18.
