Ahava Advanced Mud Masque

For the past couple of months, I've been absolutely loving this face mask from Ahava. I was recently introduced to the brand through samples in beauty boxes, and I fell in love with their hand cream! I am a huge fan of Lush's fresh face masks (Cupcake and Catastrophe Cosmetic), but I do enjoy some variety in my everyday routines!



I use this face mask 2-3 times a week, but you could use it more or less. I start by exfoliating with Benefit's Refined Finish Facial Polish. I always like to exfoliate before I use any face masks, it's my way of making sure I exfoliate 2-3 times per week, and it's a great way to prep my skin. I then apply a thin layer of this mask all over my dry face. I leave this mask on for about 5-10 minutes, sometimes less, sometimes longer. This mask does dry and harden quite quickly. I then rinse the mask off with warm water. While rinsing, this mask does double as a gentle exfoliator.


 I remove all leftover traces of this mask with a cotton pad and toner, and continue with my normal skin care routine (serum, moisturizer). This mask is formulated for normal to dry skin. I do not find this mask drying at all, even though it is a mud mask and does harden quite quickly.


This mask does leave my skin feeling so smooth and refined, as if all of the impurities have been taken away. I love using this product! I definitely need to try out more products from Ahava! Let me know any recommendations that you have in the comments! :)
