Ahava Time to Clear Purifying Mud Mask Review

The bunny has been on virtual house arrest since the past week or so due to the haze. It's causing a plethora of problems for me - taking a long time to recover from my flu + cough, eye irritation and my skin is reacting pretty badly to the pollution. I know I really shouldn't be whining when the Malaysians and Indonesians are having by far a worse time than Singapore, but the haze is really wreaking havoc on my usually sensitive skin. My face is now reddish and inflamed, dotted with pimples and congested pores. Arghh!

I think my colleague couldn't bear to look at my face so she recommended Ahava's Purifying Mud Mask. It's supposed to cleanse and purify the skin. Best of all, the mask is approved for sensitive skin like mine!

The mask is SLS/SLES and paraben free. Refer to pic below for the list of ingredients that goes into the mask. 

The mud mask smells kinda funky, I guess the smell of salty wet earth would be a close match. It glides on  easily and feels warm when applied. The mask caused a tingly sensation that was uncomfortable but not unbearable on areas where the acne are.

It's advised on the box to wash off the mask after 2 minutes, making this a fast pick-me-up for the skin. For this session, I waited till the mask dried out which took about 8 mins in an air-conditioned room. The mud is pretty easy to remove with facial cotton pads.

I am super pleased with the results! In less than 10 mins, my skin is slightly less red and pores are noticeably cleaner and smaller! See for yourself with the pic below (it's not photoshop-ed I swear). I'm loving my colleague to bits for her recommendation.

The Ahava Purifying Mud Mask can be found at Ahava stores and selected Guardian outlets. It costs $52 for 100ml.
