When I was younger, my brother and I used to make mud pies, place them into our Radio Flyer red wagon and then convince our younger sister to eat them. (We told her it was chocolate.) I always liked playing in the mud…but hated getting dirty (my mother will attest to this!) Do you know what I love? That I can still play with mud AND be doing something good for my skin at the same time.
AHAVA Mud Exfoliator: Specifically for your face, the combination of dead sea mud and minerals gently exfoliates your skin while ridding it of any oily residue. There’s no fragrance to it and it feels wonderful on your face. Simply massage in circular motions for about 30 seconds to 1 minute and rinse. Your skin will look and feel refreshed.
Borghese Fango Active Mud: Targeted for both face and body, Fango is a very mineral-rich and thick mud. (You can tell the difference in the photo above.) It does have a botanical fragrance to it that reminds me of stepping into the spa. Applied to your face, your skin will tingle, however, when I applied it to my body it didn’t render the same sensation. Regardless, I LOVE this mud and how it softens my skin. Apply in a thick layer to your skin and leave on for 5 minutes (don’t let it dry) and then rinse.
If you like to play with mud like I do, have you used either of these products? Share your experience in the comments!
