I tried Pure Body Naturals mud mask for the first time, and here are my thoughts.
PURE BODY NATURALS MUD MASK REVIEW
I bought this clay after a friend shared some with me. We had used it on our faces and hair during a trip to the Korean bath house, and I was super impressed, so I bought Molivera Organics Bentonite Clay and Dead Sea Mud Mask by Pure Body Naturals to compare and see if there was any difference.
The bentonite clay is a powder that can be mixed with either apple cider vinegar or water to make a paste. It can be used on hair or face. The Dead Sea mud is already premixed. Both smell fine, but if you mix bentonite clay with vinegar, it can burn your nostrils. I mixed with apple cider vinegar for this test. Smeared each mud on half my face.
Dead Sea Clay is faster to go on because it’s ready mixed. It’s smooth and creamy. It left my skin cleansed but not overdry. Some oils were left on my skin after using the clay. This jar is smaller than the Bentonite mask.
Bentonite clay mixed with vinegar — the smell was nearly overpowering! I don’t think I will do that again, as you can see in the picture that my face actually swelled under that mixture. Those people seeing firmness after using the clay may not be seeing actual firming, but swelling instead. This clay stripped my skin of all oils. ALL.
Both of my face felt smooth after the test, but you can see that the Bentonite side was swollen. Both masks are good options, with Bentonite being the cheaper version, and Dead Sea Mud more convenient. I won’t be doing the apple cider vinegar mixture again due to the swelling, so now you know not to as well.
