Galloway & White Israeli Dead Sea Mud Masque REVIEW
June 27, 2018
I have been on a roll with these reviews recently, wow, I promise to post something different next! If I have to be complete honest, I am not good at masking on the regular. I put it as a new year’s resolution, but I am still struggling. I either forget about it for months, or do it every day. There is no in between. However, when the lovely people at Galloway & White sent me their Israeli Dead Sea Mud Masque, I thought that something had to change. I knew I was going to review it, so I decided to use it twice a week for at least a month to see if it actually makes a difference in my skin.
If I have to be completely honest, my expectations were not high. I have some history with trying out natural skincare and it never really did too much for my skin. But let’s see how it worked out this time, shall we?
Honestly, I didn’t expect this packaging, I thought it would be plastic. But when I first held the sturdy jar, I was super impressed. It comes in a really thick, dark glass jar with a twist on lid on it. I will definitely be reusing it when I am finished with the masque.
Something that not many people will like is that it is a jar and not a tube, but I always use a foundation brush to put on my masks (I don’t like dipping into jars), so it does not really bug me.
For £17.50 (or about €20) you get 120ml of vegan, cruelty-free product.
“Galloway & White Mud Masque combines the naturally mineral rich Dead Sea Mud with Shea Butter, Aloe Vera and Jojoba Oil for visibly purer skin. Naturally enriched with Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium and Calcium our Mud Masque will promote a healthier complexion through mineral hydration. Regular use helps with the removal and prevention of black heads and impurities through deep cleansing.”
Dionized Water, Dead Sea Mud, Laolin, Shea Butter, Sunflower oil, Aloe Vera Juice, Vegetable Glycerin, Jojoba Oil, Hickory Bark Extract, Calendula Oil, Filtered Water, Xantahn Gum.
All of the ingredients are natural, and after some research I found that Xantahn Gum is derived from glucose or sucrose and is used as a binder and stabilizer. And it is also though to have skin-conditioning properties!
On the packaging it says to use it every 2-3 days, so I did. First of all, you can tell there are many oils in the product, as the texture is not like any other mud mask I have ever used. It feel soft, glides on and feels moisturising on the skin, but not oily. Truly a one of a kind experience for a clarifying mask. For example, my beloved L’Oreal clay one is quite drying on my skin and I need to double up on the moisturiser after using it. However, this is not the case with the Galloway & White one. I don’t feel the same pulling on my skin after using it because of all of the oils and butters in it.
Now that I have used the Galloway & White Israeli Dead Sea Mud Masque for a month, there are noticeable improvements in my skin. The bumps on my forehead have cleared a lot and my nose blackheads are gone (however, this could be due to a product I mentioned in this post). All in all, I am extremely pleased with this masque. Super thankful to Galloway & White for letting me try this out! I may delve into natural skincare more again and see if I find something else that my skin is going to enjoy.
