I was kindly sent this Face Mud to smell, feel and try. I have to say I absolutely love the packaging. The labelling is so beautiful and authentic. The jar is small but packs a lot of product and takes minimal space in the bathroom cupboard.
Face Mud contains a blend of 16 super fruit and plant extracts as well as locally sourced Manuka Honey, Orange Peel and Sandalwood. This 3-in-1 Face Mud cleanses, exfoliates and hydrates the skin of pollution and dead skin cells whilst delivering potent bio-actives deep within the epidermis in less than 3-minutes.
Highlighting the three main active ingredients, Manuka Honey, Orange Peel and Sandalwood are know for it's therapeutic properties to clean, treat and protect skin by eliminating harmful toxins in skin. Manuka Honey is known for it's anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties and is extremely beneficial for the skin. Orange Peel is rich in calcium, magnesium & potassium, effectively deep cleans pores and gently exfoliating dead skin cells in turn leaving skin clear from blackheads, whiteheads and acne and Sandalwood great for blemishes.

Designed for everyday use as a cleanser, the unique formulation of Coconut, Aloe Vera and Apricot Oils also transforms the Face Mud into a nourishing treatment mask; leaving the skin feeling supple and soft to the touch. It suitable for all skin types especially sensitive skin.
To use it's really simple. Scoop out a desired amount with your fingers and add water mixing in the palm of your hands. The texture is quite firm and you have to dig out the product. It does develop into a soft paste when mixed with water. Massage all over your face evenly and gentle massage in circular motions. I felt like I was smearing Vegemite all over my face! To rinse, I used a face cloth and warm water to cleanse the skin. For an express facial, leave on skin for 2-3 minutes.
