Fast forward a few years to a volcanic mud mask I received at an exclusive salon… Although the ambiance was stunning and the service was impeccable, I still walked out feeling as if my face might crack with any sudden movement!
Luckily, mud masks have come a long way since then. And, I recently tried a new one from VIA Cosmedics that not only cleans skin and minimizes pores, it actually moisturizes and rejuvenates dry skin like mine. VIA Cosmedics MegaMud Mask is formulated with powerful age-fighting peptides that restore natural radiance… at any age!
The mask is easy to use. I simply smoothed it onto my freshly washed face in a thin layer (if you use too much, it won’t dry properly). I allowed the mask to dry completely (about 10 minutes). Then, I easily washed it off with warm water. My skin was clean, clear, smooth and toned, but not dry.
The secret that makes this mask different than others is the unique formulation and combination of ingredients. Naturally, it’s rich in bentonite and kaolin clays. But, the mask is also infused with botanicals. For example, green tea, pumpkin, pineapple, and pomegranate team up to fight free radicals, support proper skin regeneration, and combat the effects of aging. And, Argan Oil infuses powerful moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging benefits.
Plus, Matrixyl® 3000 (Palmitoyl Oligopeptide & Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide) boosts collagen production and reduces wrinkles and lines. Argireline® (Acetyl Hexapeptide) relaxes facial muscle tension by inhibiting the release of neurotransmitters, resulting in reduced wrinkles and lines. And, Hyaluronic Acid increases absorption and retention of water (up to 1,000 times its’ weight!), giving skin added fullness.
The best part, though, is what’s not in the VIA Cosmedics MegaMud Mask. The mask contains no parabens, sulfates, or harmful ingredients.
The MegaMud Mask is available for only $29.95 at VIA Cosmedics. While you’re there, don’t forget to check out some of the other great skincare products offered by the company, like the Exfoliating & Clarifying UltraMud Mask, an extra strength mask and the Sea Whip Cucumber Detox Soothing Gel, a refreshing gel formulated to help soothe dry, irritated, and inflamed skin.
