I am a mud-mask-loving-beauty-addict. I do 1-2 masks a week and one of those is always one with mud. The Farmhouse Fresh Sand Your Ground Clarifying Mud Exfoliation Mask is one that performs double-duty. If you have dull, lackluster skin this is definitely for you!
First off, I want to mention how fantastic the packaging is. From the country-chic glass jar with screw top lid and fabulously designed box all the way to the cute name of the product! I am a sucker for packaging and these guys named it!
This product buffs and makes you glow all while absorbing bacteria and toxins from your skin. The medium-grain powdered volcanic pumice polishes skin smooth, while Red Arizona Montmorillonite Clay absorbs bacteria and toxins. Willow Bark Extract brings a refreshing feel that soothes skin to a poreless-looking finish. This mask does not tingle when used, and can be used either as a mask, exfoliator or both, by exfoliating and then letting the mud dry before rinsing. I personally do the latter!
One afternoon while I was hanging out with my littlest i decided to apply the mask and prep food for dinner (I know, I am weird!) and then my 8-year-old son walks in the door and doesn’t even look twice at me at first. I guess it is normal for me to be looking strange at random moments throughout the day. A few minutes later he picked up the jar and said “What is this? Dirt?” I said “Yep, it is going to make me beautiful!” He was so confused how dirt could do that, but in the tradition of women keeping men confused for eternity I didn’t explain any further. However, I will explain to you!
I know this isn’t just plain old dirt, but the two main ingredients pumice and clay are highly-credited natural beauty ingredients. Red arizona clay is KNOWN for absorbing impurities, detoxifying and purifying skin. The volcanic pumice included is a natural exfoliator!
One I removed this mask my skin was so smooth! It felt like fresh, plump, teenage skin… and I am far from teenage-years! Basically, this may just be my new holy-grail mask. A new regular for my Skincare Sunday roundup! :) Farmhouse Fresh Sand Your Ground retails at $36 for 3.0 oz of product. It also comes in a cute glass jar—very shabby chic!
