Skin type: Combination and acne-prone
I recently reviewed the Soap & Glory Body Buff and shared with you guys that I found an amazing dupe brand of Soap & Glory called “Dirty Works”! I picked up some stuff from Dirty Works and this mud mask from them attracted me to the core since I have oily skin. So let’s see how this cutie worked for me.
Price: 5 GBP/Rs 500 for 100 ml (Retails at Rs 750 in India)
Product Description by Dirty Works:
An intensive and radiance boosting face mask to deeply cleanse and replenish your skin.
Combining superfruit extract of Blueberry, skin clearing Willow Bark and detoxifying Green Clay and Kaolin to help draw out impurities, skin will be left feeling refreshed and glowing!
Directions: Apply a thin layer of MASK to cleansed face, neck and décolleté. Relax for 10 minutes while it dries. Splash with warm water to remove, or wipe clean with a damp flannel, and gently pat skin dry. Use once or twice a week, or when your skin is in need of some extra TLC!
My Experience with Dirty Works The Ultimate Detox Mud Mask:
Packaging: Oh my God, I have madly fallen in love with their packaging! The packaging was the reason why I actually picked this one up. The mud mask comes in a bright turquoise blue tube packaging with stars and ribbons over it combined with pink colour. The tube is an inverted one and hence it sits very nicely on my shelf. Also, due to the inverted packaging, the tube is not supposed to be squeezed hard to get the product out. It is very handy with a flip cap which opens and closes conveniently too. The price is a bit high compared to the stuff offered but one tube would go a long way since a very little product is required at a time and we do not use a mud mask more than once a week.
Consistency, smell and feel on the skin: I really loved the consistency of this mask because I have used a lot of mud masks and this has the best consistency. Usually the mud masks are very thick and take a lot of effort to spread nicely on the face but with this, it is nothing like that. The mask comes in very light mint green colour and turns almost white on the face after drying. It spreads very nicely and as smooth as butter on my skin. It has a very fresh scent and smells really good till the time it is on my skin. It does not irritate my skin at all. It dries completely within 15 minutes and then I have to wash it off.
Results: The mask is very easy to wash just with water. The moment I rinsed it I could feel a little tight skin which usually happens with a mud mask, so not really recommended for dry skin. But a great one for normal and oily skin! My skin looked deeply cleansed like claimed. My nose area looked smoother so it works to remove daily impurities, dirt and cleansed excess oil too giving me a matte face. My face looked comparatively fresher than before; my skin felt pampered. My skin felt soft, smooth and looked healthier as it no more looked dull. But there was no such noticeable radiance but that it is okay since my skin looked naturally good after using this. Not a necessity but it is a nice mud mask to have in the stash!
