Mud masks are definitely making a come-back, only this time they’re much more sophisticated than the crusty masks of before. I’ve got a little bit more interested in skin care lately – no idea why – so I’ve been trying and testing a lot of products, including the Sarah McNamara Skin Transformer Miracle Revival Mask.
The first thing to say about it is that it is rather active so if you are prone to very sensitive skin you would need to give this a miss, I think. But from there, its all good. The Miracle Revival Mud really does make a marked difference to the skin in terms of softness, smoothness and brightness – it’s absolutely perfect for using before you apply foundation or base to make it look immaculate on your skin. I’m not sure it made any difference in firmness but it’s so good, that I would forgive this mask just about anything! A tip from US bloggers who have been trialling it is to use it on your hands as well.
Ingredient wise, the claim is that the power player in this mask is silt from spring water lakes – silt is rich in vitamins and antioxidants and very detoxifying. Well, the right silt, anyway.. don’t go putting any old silt on your skin! What’s notable is how hydrated skin feels afterwards – a very far cry from the drying old muds of the past. If I was to compare it to anything, it would be GlamGlow Mud Mask which is all kinds of genius, but Miracle Revival Mud has a much more savoury price point – £21. It’s HERE at QVC and I can’t find any other UK stockists for it so it must be an exclusive.
