Beauty review: Spa Find Stabilizing Mud Mask


Several months ago I was sent a range of different home spa treatments to try. Amongst them was a small tube of Spa Find’s Stabilizing Mud Mask. Last week I decided to give a go and see if it improved the look and feel of my skin. Now I don’t normally buy face masks as I find gentle steaming much nicer plus it has the added benefit of helping to clear my sinus at the same time.

So I sat down and applied the mud in areas that currently needed attention. In the winter my skin tends to break out in dry patches as the cold wind and central heating play havoc. So I hoped that the mask would alleviate the spots that appear where my face has dried.

The mask is made of Dead Sea Mud, Harmonised Water, Kaolin as well as several herbs like sage and rosemary. The mask claims to have deep cleaning properties and  leaves the skin brighter and clear of blemishes.

The first thing that struck me was the really strange smell. It smells like tobacco which is not the relaxing scent that I expected. The texture was very thick, being mud of course, but was fairly difficult to apply to the skin without almost pulling the skin. I would have liked it to be a little more creamy when first applied.

With the face mask on. Beautiful!I left it on for about 20 minutes and it dried and tightened. After rinsing off with warm water I didn’t see any noticeable difference in my skin and I was very glad to be rid of the smell. I then washed my face with L’Occitane Verbena Soap as it was a much nicer smell than the tobacco and finally got rid of the scent that had made me feel like I had washed my face in a bowl of cigarette butts.

L'Occitane Verbena Shea Butter Extra Gentle SoapI wouldn’t say I am keen to use it again due to the aroma which frankly, reminds me of the smell of my grandfather’s pipe. I’ll be sticking to my steaming to clean out my pores.

  1. I can’t imagine having something on my skin that smells like tobacco…yikes. I do love L’occitane and their products are really worth the price

  2. Hi Kat, I am Marketing Director of Spa Find! Would you like to try the ‘new and improved’ Stabilizing Mud Mask, now with a lovely (I think) allergen-free fragrance and added Mineral-Age NanoPlex to give great anti-ageing results? Kate x
