I have been on the search for a good mud mask and activated charcoal masks for a while. When I got my hands on this two-in-one, I had to give it a try and here is my detailed review of it after using for a week.

This is a black, thick pasty mud mask with a rather strong smell. The whiff, however, settles down after a while. No, it does not give a headache, it smells like musky fragrances men use.

My Experience

I used this mask for a week, so three uses and it is a rather cooling mud mask. It was surprisingly, not all drying as many masks actually rob you off that sebum and natural oils of your face and neck. It takes around 10-15 minutes to dry properly and should be washed with warm water. For proper results, we need at least a month of application but so far it has left my skin refreshed and squeaky clean. The only negative I found was that it has SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) which in big dosage is bad for the skin. 

Pros

  • Sturdy Jar
  • Leaves your skin squeaky clean

Cons

  • Travel-friendly but it would be nice if the brand comes out with small sizes as well.
  • Contains SLS.

Verdict

I am very particular about using SLS and paraben-free products as the prolonged use of these chemicals is not very good for you, but if is about getting the work done, then it is effective.
