Celebrate Earth Day with Arbonne SeaSource Detox Sea Mud Face & Body Mask

How many of us are aware that Earth Day falls on the 22nd April? Truthfully, I'll admit that I had no idea about it until an email from Arbonne landed in my inbox. Arbonne is celebrating Earth Day with their SeaSource Detox Sea Mud Face & Body Mask*.

Now I have a love hate relationships with face masks in general well, mainly because I am too lazy to use them and most of the time I just forget. I know I'm not the only one who is guilty of this and is also the main reason why I much prefer sheet masks. 

Now one of the beauties of being sent something to test is I have to discipline myself to trial the products consistently in order to write fair reviews. So when Arbonne SeaSource Detox Sea Mud Face & Body Mask* landed on my doorstep, being lazy and forgetful were no longer acceptable excuses. I have been using this face mask two to three times a week for the past two weeks and I must say, I am really loving it.

Arbonne SeaSource Detox Sea Mud Face & Body Mask* is formulated with ingredients of the earth and sea while utilizing botanically-based ingredients and environmentally-friendly packaging.

The mask is a deep muddy green with a touch of grey and just like any mud mask, it has a very thick texture. The good news is, unlike some mud masks that are hard to spread out on the skin, this is very smooth which makes it's easy to apply. It has a very strong medicinal scent, it is not unpleasant for me but I think some might be bothered by it.

A word of warning, this mask actually stings upon contact on the face. Now I have used a couple of mud masks before and my pain tolerance is pretty high but I felt a little uncomfortable with this. My skin felt like it was burning and I actually told Mr. Platt that I thought my skin might suffer with this, but as usual he zoned out and went to his happy place. The stinging will go away as the mask dries down but that will take a good 5-10 minutes depending on the amount used.

Just like any other mud masks, my face felt tight as the mask dried down but surprisingly, my skin was not red or inflamed like I thought it would be when I rinsed the mask off. Instead I was greeted with the smoothest and clearest looking skin and I swear my pores looked less obvious. I did get one tiny little spot on my face the next day but that is expected as this mask is meant to draw out impurities.

Now here's the interesting part, when this mask is applied on the body (I tried it on my arms) it doesn't sting at all instead it feels very cooling and once it's rinsed off, you'll have the softest feeling and looking skin. So why does it sting so bad on the face? Honestly I don't know, maybe our facial skin is much more sensitive than the rest of our body?

Despite the burning sensation, I really enjoyed using this and my skin has been very soft, smooth and clear with it. I plan to use it all over the body during the Summer time. It's still a touch too cold for me to stand around butt naked while waiting for the mask to dry so Summer would be the best time as it would be freaking hot and this mask gives a very cooling sensation.

If you can tolerate the tingling sensation and the strong medicinal scent then I highly suggest giving Arbonne SeaSource Detox Sea Mud Face & Body Mask* a try. The results are really worth it!

Arbonne SeaSource Detox Sea Mud Face & Body Mask are retailing for $49.00 and available for purchase here.

*I received this product for free but my thoughts and opinions are 100% unbiased, honest and my own. There is no place for any sort of BS here.
