My Experience with Ahava Facial Mud Exfoliator:
The product comes in a cardboard packaging with all ingredients, claims etc. printed all over it. The mask comes in a medium sized tube with a few details printed over it. The tube has earthy colors and looks elegant. The packaging is not fancy; it’s very basic. The product is basically an exfoliator with dead sea mud doing the exfoliating job. When I bought this product I thought it’d be like any other exfoliant with beads but was left a little surprised. The product itself is creamy and quite thick in consistency.
One can even apply it like a mask, if required. I wanted the best benefits and hence I applied a thin layer of it and left it for 5 minutes and then scrubbed my face with a little water. After that, I washed my face with warm water. The brand recommends to use it just like any regular scrub. Once can cleanse their face first and then apply the product all over and massage it well. Then, just wash it off with plain water. I have used it both ways and it works well.
The product itself is lightweight and very easy to work with. I was expecting it to be like multani mitti but it is basically a good mix of dead sea mud along with a hydrating cream. Both of these work like magic together. I feel the smell is slightly rancid. It does not bother and is still manageable. Since the product has hydrating cream, it does not end up drying out the skin.
The product is very effective in getting rid of dead skin even with light scrubbing. I have sensitive skin and light scrubbing is all my skin can take. But this scrub helped me get rid of dry skin and deal skin cells. This scrub left my face bright and glowing. The credit definitely goes to the cream in the exfoliant. My skin felt so soft and smooth to touch. It’s an expensive product but will last long and is worth the money.
