Beauty Review: Mud Therapy - Aloe Vera Mud Mask

I bought this tube of mud mask from Superdrug last week for a meagre £2.39, and have been using it for a week. I thought it would be good to do a little review for this beauty product just in case there are those who are considering buying this off the shelves. 

As with most clay masks, the instructions are to apply to a clean face and leave on for 10-15 minutes. Afterwards, rinse with warm water and pat dry. The front of the tube says the mud came from the deep sea and can naturally detoxify the skin. I bought Aloe Vera because I thought it might help with the acne I've been getting recently. 

Clay masks are supposed to help draw out the impurities and harden, tighten your face as it dries. Clay masks also help unclog pores and draw out dirt. I've been having some on my nose lately and that's because of late night stress etc, 


Pros: I can definitely SEE my pores (clogged ones) show up through the mask as it dried. So that's a relief to see it actually working somehow on my skin rather than doing nothing! Also I think it is quite thick - nothing is worse than watery masks which drip off your face. Mud Therapy definitely didn't drip at all and was thick, just the way I like it. The mask also dried off really quickly and was clean to touch, so I don't have to worry about it sticking to my shirt. I also have dry skin and this helped in making it less cracked. 

After leaving it on for a long time, I washed it off. It was quite easy to remove and left my skin softer. It also REMOVED MOST OF THE blackened clogged pores off my nose! I'm surprised at it - no amount of washing with facial wash did this! It is not costly and available in most Superdrug stores.. 

Cons: My face felt really stiff when the mask was on ! More so than the other masks I've used before.  Also I had to apply a lot for it to form a decent layer - I'm worried that the 75ml will be used up really soon. I don't think it helped clear up acne or have much medicinal properties, to be honest. The aloe vera part didn't seem to work, and my blemishes were still there and a bit itchy. Not too natural - it had some other ingredients listed that were strange. 

To me, it is quite a good product for removal of clogged blackheads / pores on your nose and T zone.  But if you have pimples or reddened parts on your face, it definitely does not remedy and work to reduce the spread. But at least I got a cleaned nose - I'm really happy about this! 


If you're looking for a cheap mud mask that you can leave on and just use often without worrying how much you apply , then this is for you. But if you want an exfoliating mask with more purifying effects, I think it would be worthwhile to invest in something with more natural ingredients, granules and maybe more expensive. 

Do YOU always use mud masks ? Do they work on your skin ? 


  1. great review! i love mud masks but i don't use them too often because I find they actually tend to dry my skin out too much but I definitely like them when I'm breaking out more than usual :)

    ohh the lipstick is by revlon i think it's called cherry red :)!

  2. I don't use mud masks but I think I should give it a go because I have serious clogged pore/blackhead problems @@ This looks like a good product for me to try, considering that it does its work in removing blackheads/pores and it's affordable ;) Thanks for the review! I'll keep my eyes out for this.
