nspa Skin Glow Mud Mask Review

Tuesday, 25 August 2015

Hello Beauties! I hope you're all well and have an exciting week ahead of you! Face masks are one of my favourite beauty treats, I have a whole collection of them yet I'm always on the hunt for the next best thing...which is pretty much the same with any beauty product, I can never resist buying more! One I've wanted to get my mitts on for a while now is the Glam Glow Supermud Clearing Treatment, as I've heard it does extraordinary things for oily/spot prone skin like my own. However, due to the high price I've always hesitated, so when I heard that nspa had released a face mask which was said to be a dupe for the Glam Glow mask, I couldn't wait to try it. 

The nspa Skin Glow Mud Mask is a deep cleansing treatment mask which contains Kaolin Clay and Charcoal to draw out all of the impurities hiding in your pores. The mask also contains Cimicifyga Extract (10 points to whoever can actually pronounce that one!) which is said to help reduce the appearance of pores and generally improve your skins condition. Alongside all of this deep cleaning goodness, the mask also contains Aloe Vera and Vitamin E (usually a good sign for me in terms of skincare) to help soothe the skin and provide antioxidant protection. 

Upon opening the mask, the first thing I noticed was the scent. The mask has that classic nspa scent, much like a lot of their other products, which I really love as I find it incredibly soothing and relaxing - exactly what you want from a face mask. The mask itself is grey in colour, probably from the charcoal and clay, and it of a medium consistency. It's not too runny but it's also not so thick that you have to really scoop it out of the pot, I'd say it was just right. I also found this mask to dry incredibly quickly and wash off like a dream, leaving no residue behind, which is always a bonus in my opinion - who wants to spend forever washing off their face mask when all you really want to do is crawl into bed and slip into a Netflix coma. 

Overall, I did find this mask to work well at clearing my pores. I have a terrible case of blackheads, excess oil and at the moment my face is breakout city, so this mask has been a real lifesaver. I wouldn't say it tops my REN Invisible Pores Mask, but if you're looking for a cheaper alternative then I'd say definitely give this one a try. The one problem I had with this mask though was the feeling of it on my skin. I often find that clay masks really sting my skin (apart from the REN mask) and unfortunately this one was no different. The mask did leave my skin feeling ultra clean and smooth, and almost like my skin could breathe after using it, if that makes any sense at all? 

I'd really recommend this mask to anyone who wants to really deep clean their skin and get deep into their pores as it's brilliant for that, however, if your skin is on the sensitive side like mine then either be prepared for it to sting a little, or find something a little more gentle. This mask came out on the 22nd so it's now available to buy in Tesco stores across the country - happy shopping! 

Lots of Love,

    1. Yeah Emma its is great for my skin and I have extremely oily skin blackheads and spots. Which is annoying.

      I have tried a few of NSPA's products the newest one I'm using at the moment is the oil-free moisturiser. Which is especially for Pete who have oily skin.

      If you or anyone else on here want to know of anymore of NSPA's products I would suggest going on YouTube and searching for "Nspa Beauty Rituals".

      As there is a woman on there who works for Nspa and she gives advice to what might work best for different skin types. Also she help 3 other ladies a mother and her 2 daughters with all different skin types and helps them understand which products to use and why.

      That is also where I learned about the oil-free moisturiser which I got today while in Asda. The prices range from around £2 to £7. But today I got 2 moisturisers for £8.

      Anyway I hope this information helps eithe you or anyone on this website.

  8. This sounds fab! I am looking for a good face mask. Black heads are super frustrating to get rid of. Thanks for the review!

  9. I'm so glad you said it stings! I wondered why and thought I may be allergic or something but it stopped after a few minutes and my skin feels so soft after it :) thanks for the review!
