Disclaimer: compensation for this review was in the form of the dead sea mud mask via Brandbacker & InstaNatural, but opinions are all mine.
I have a "thing" for masks... meaning that I have several one-time-use packets, and I actually use at least one a week. So when Brandbacker and InstaNatural gave me a chance to try out InstaNatural's Dead Sea Mud Mask, I knew I had to jump on it.
You see, InstaNatural "is a leading online and global distributor of more than a dozen nature inspired beauty and cosmetics products." And their products are one of the top sellers on Amazon, and can be found in a variety of spas and salons. They use natural and organic ingredients- most of their products on on the Leaping Bunny list, meaning they are cruelty free, and they feature a lifetime satisfaction guarantee. To date, I have tried four, now six, of InstaNatural's products, and have loved a majority of them.
When I first received the dead sea mud mask, I couldn't believe how big it was. It's a FULL 16 oz container, and according to the directions, it can be used on the face AND body. Talk about a multi-tasker.
The dead sea mud mask is an all natural detoxifier and purifier that is made using the mud from the dead sea (the body of water in the Mediterranean, which contains many beneficial minerals). It claims to be able to "expunge acne, pimples and blackheads", "to restore an even skin tone for a smoother complexion", and "when used as a body treatment, the mud mask can soothe and relieve muscles aches and pains".
I can't honestly tell you how the body treatment works, but I can tell you that my face actually felt smoother and hydrated after one use. AND it surprised me. - I have used dead sea mud mask's before, but with my sensitive skin, I have always had so sort of reaction- dry skin, itchy skin, red skin, etc, but with InstaNatural's mask, I didn't have any reactions, except for a little bit of tingling on my upper cheek area.
A bonus was that the mask really didn't have a smell, and the consistency was gel-like. It went on rather easy, and washed off without leaving a residue.
I really liked the Dead Sea Mud Mask, and highly recommend it. If you want to buy the mask- it's between $24-25 and you can grab it from InstaNatural or Amazon.
As part of the Dead Sea Mud Mask promotion, InstaNatural also invited me to use their Emu Oil.
Emu Oil comes from Emu's when they are processed for meat, and can provide moisturizing benefits to the skin and hair. It also claims to soothe dry, itchy, flaky skin, reduce the appearance of scars, dark spots, stretch marks, burns and other discoloration, have anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe injuries, such as aching joints, sores muscles and sprains, and rejuvenate and replenish hair.
I used the Emu Oil on my dry hands, face (a couple of days before using the Dead Sea mask), and on the ends of my hair. It didn't have a smell, which was nice. I noticed that a little goes a long way, and it was VERY hydrating to my hands. I don;t use it every day, but I am happy to have it in my beauty arsenal.
Have you ever tried any InstaNatural products?
