Pixi Glow Mud Mask (1oz/$20) is yet another offering from a slew of skincare products they recently launched at Target. My oily skin makes me highly attuned to any products that contain mud or clay. Anything that will sop up my face grease is gonna get serious consideration for purchase. Plus, the word "glow" on a package makes my heart do a little pitter patter of excitement. This mask is described as follows:
"This pore clearing, glow-revealing treat is an effective and revitalizing boost for the complexion. Aloe vera, ginseng, and mineral rich mud combine to create the ultimate energizing and deep pore cleansing mask. Deep cleans and balances without drying. Great for congested, dull and tired skin. For all skin types."
Directions state to use it in the evening by applying a thin layer to clean skin. Leave it on to dry for 15 minutes and then rinse off. Usage is recommended for 2-3 times per week or as a spot treatment. The mask comes in a squeeze tube with a twist off cap. It's a deep gray-black color with a hint of sheen to it. It's thin in consistency and has a light,sweet scent that I liked.
Verdict: I have used this mask a few times especially when I've had a few minor breakouts brewing (my skin is always good for a pimple or three two for product testing). It dries down until you can see every pore on your face (stating the obvious: not pretty) but it's not uncomfortable in the slightest. It does turn bluish in color when it dries down--magic! It rinses off with some gentle elbow grease and left my skin looking smooth, brighter and glowy. This is very welcome as the skin struggle is real. The deep color can make for a potential messy removal so perhaps wear your best ratty-tatty t-shirt when using it. Otherwise, I think this mask is very soothing but gives your skin the business when it's being naughty. I like having it in my beauty arsenal especially during hormonal madness weeks (yes, I said weeks). Great pick---Pixi keeps slaying me with these skincare products! Head to Target for info/purchase.
