Arbonne Sea Mud Face & Body Mask Review
Arbonne. A brand which many have heard of, yet they don't know much about it. As my one of my friends has recently become a consultant for them, I met up with her for a little chinwag and of course wanted the scoop on all their products. Basically Arbonne is very natural, great for vegans and it free from gluten, parabens and other nasties. Anyone can sell it, you don't need a beauty qualification nor is any training required, something which being in the industry for 5 years I'm not entirely sure on, but that's not what I'm here to tell you about today. Here I'm sharing with you my review of the Sea Mud Face and Body Mask which Steph very kindly lent me as we all know how much I love a face mask! This mask claims to cleanse and draw out impurities from the skin’s surface, helping prevent clogged pores and leaves your skin feeling smooth, hydrated and glowing - sounds right up my street! 
 
The tube packaging is nice and sleek although I do think a pump style would have been better as I tend to find with tubes that you always squeeze out a lot more than what you need. The product inside lives up to it's name as it actually looks like mud and smells quite earthy which is a huge novelty for me as there's nothing better than using a coloured mask on your face is there?! I left this on for about 15 minutes and it slowly turned to a clay-like texture. (Yes it did crack when I smiled!) I was told there could be slight redness after, which there wasn't, but that's definitely something to keep in mind as you wouldn't want to use this before a big night out. Once I had washed this off my skin didn't feel much softer than what it had before but then I think that could be down to the fact that I have a pretty good skincare routine already. As for glowing skin and unclogged pores I'm afraid it didn't do much for them either, and in all honesty I'm really disappointed as it didn't live up to anything it said on the tin. This may be good if you have quite problematic, blemished skin without much of a skin care routine, but for me it just didn't do much at all. I decided to try another couple of areas and applied a smidge to my hands and elbows as I tend to find these are the driest parts of my body. I got a much better result with these areas as I don't normally use a body mask so my skin felt much more silky afterwards, especially the dryness I had on my elbows. 

I had such high expectations for this mask and I so wanted to love it but it didn't do anything for me. For £32.00 this definitely isn't cheap and it isn't something I'd buy. I won't let this experience put me off Arbonne products though as I've read such amazing reviews, their Primer in particular which is next on my list to try!

  2. I haven't heard of this brand to be honest.

    £32 is a lot of money for a mask that doesn't work, bady shop body butter on the elbow is good enough for me ;-)

    Nice to see an honest review!!

  3. This product doesn't really sound worth the price. I reccomend the Avon black mineral mask!
