THis is the first time I'm ever gonna try a mud mask. Let me say, the smell is something to get used to. It's a little off but bearable. The consistency is great and works well for me. I haven't seen any brightening effect yet since I've only been using this for several day only. On the bright side, it did leave my skin soft and smooth. A little bump in the cheek but this just might be an effect of the exfoliation. I will try this product for a bit more to see how effective this really is.

It's my first time using this product and I'm quite satisfied!
Face feels tight upon applying it, but after rinsing, my skin feels smoother and cleaner. I think using this on a regular basis will make your skin brighter and clearer.

I've been on a skin care kick lately so a mask was definitely in order. I've tried a couple of peel of masks, some delivered while some didn't. This delivered. I've used it for two weeks and boy did it deliver! The deep-seated dirt was on the surface, making it easier for my scrub to take them off. My face was smoother and softer. I can't really say anything about its brightening properties because I am dark-skinned but I felt my face was a bit more toned. The only thing that I can think of I don't like is the smell, which is kind of a bit off-putting. Other than that this is a great product and definitely worth the purchase.

I've been on a mask binge lately, buying all those Korean sheet masks. However, after taking off those sheet masks, I've never had an 'oh wow, my skin feels so nice' moment. There is no instant gratification to using those things!

Fast forward to last night when I tried the AHAVA Purifying Mud Mask.... Hmm, only 2 minutes is needed then you can wash it off immediately. Not bad. Putting it on my face was a breeze. Not much is needed in order to cover all the areas needed to be covered (except eyes and under eyes). It says in the tube to use generously.. and I did but I still felt that I didn't need to use that much. The mask spread thinly and evenly on my face. No clumpy parts at all. After 2 minutes, I washed it off and my skin felt instantly smooth and clear. I kept on touching my face last night because it was really really smooth. Excited to try this out in a couple of days again.. :)

Living in an urban area means that I usually have to contend with clogged pores and blackheads, so I was excited to try the product. I found the Ahava Purifying Mud Mask to be a great product to use, especially after using a good facial scrub to help prepare the skin. The product is easy to apply and a little goes a long way, which boded well for its value in the long run. After removing the mud mask, I found my face to be smoother and clearer. It cleared out some of my blackheads, leaving only the most stubborn ones that I think subsequent use of the mud mask should take care of. I asked my boyfriend to try the product as well, and he said that he felt a positive change after using the mud mask, experiencing the same effects as I did.

Twice is enough for me to review this product. My face reacts easily to mud masks, and I was pleased to say that this really is suitable for those with sensitive skin. I've tried other mud masks (those bought from Healthy Options) and I always, always break out after one use. It may be the purifying effect but I wasn't willing to sport rashes and acne while waiting for the mask to take effect.

None of that with the AHAVA purifying mud mask. It tingles a bit when put on, but upon washing it off after two minutes, my face was glowing. Texture feels smooth and tight, but not dry.

I also have this raw whitehead mark which I popped (sorry!). It always go back to its raw stage after washing, but after using the mask, I was really surprised that the wound seemed to heal.

Upon waking up, the wound is closed up and seems to be on its way to really healing. Set aside the pungent smell (which thank God disappeared after washing off), I really really love this product!

I have been using this product for several days now and I'm really enjoying it. I like that it's very easy to apply on my face - no need to add water unlike other mud mask that I've tried. I love how the product makes me feel every after wash. It makes my skin soft and smooth. It's as if I'm touching someone else's face. I also like the size of the sample that was given to me since it's very compact and is perfect as a traveling companion too. I will definitely buy this product when my sample runs out.

It was my first tine to try a mud mask so I did not know what to expect. Texture wise, it was good; it was easy to apply and a little goes a long way I found. After usage I immediately felt the tightening and smoothening effects. My skin also felt super clean and oil free. what I do not like though is the smell and the feeling while the mask is on me, it stings a little bit. But overall good product and not too expensive so I'll definitely buy it.

I've used this thrice already and I like the results it gives each time, very consistent! The texture is gritty, the way mud masks should be. The smell - a little off putting but nothing you can't get pass with especially with the bright, smooth and soft skin that you'd get afterwards. I did get bumps after and since I was new to exfoliating (I had to consult Google how), the bumps kind of irked me at first. But I know it only proves that this mask really sucks out deep-seated dirt. However, I seem to notice that it worked on the deep-seated dirt but not so much on my blackheads and whiteheads so I rated it a 3/5 on deep cleansing properties. It works well in controlling oil in the tzone, though!

I thought I was going to fall head over heels with this product but not quite. It's a great mask but I don't think it's the best out there for me.

I received my sample 2 weeks ago but opted to review only upon using the product for several uses to give it a fair verdict. Upon opening the sample I received, I initially thought, how many uses will I get out of this tiny tube? Will it be worth the actual size price? To answer my questions, it actually goes a long way. I used my 25ml twice a week since receiving it and I think it still have enough for another week or so (that's a month, so if I avail the 100ml it could stretch to 4 months). So that's a check for me. During usage, I like how easily I'm able to spread the product and that it is gritty enough for me to feel its scrubbing away those dead cell layers but gentle enough not to scrape the skin. As it was drying out, I can feel my face tightening and the deep seated dirt coming off. The only thing that bothered me during the 2 minute ordeal was the slight "fishy" smell and the itchy feeling on certain parts of my face. Fear turned to surprise after rinsing and exfoliating. My face was brighter and smoother after the first use alone that I can't stop myself from touching my face and looking in the mirror. Fast forward to two weeks, my face is less oily, pores relatively smaller and my face noticeably brighter. With it's immediate and long term effect even in between use, I have actually purchased a full size product. Thanks Sample Room!

I love that this mud+clay mask has an innocuous scent! That's my problem with most clay-containing masks -- the smell makes me dizzy. This one just smells faintly of soil after a light rain. Anyway, I just had to rave about that, on to the review:

This 25 ml sample is actually quite generous. It's lasted me 4 uses, and I can get 3 more out of it. I use it once or twice a week. Packaging and texture make this mask super easy to apply. Love the squeeze tube; I am averse to packaging where you have to scoop out the product. With this, just squeeze out a dollop onto clean dry hands and apply it on a dry face. Instructions say to "apply generously" but I actually only needed about half a teaspoon of product for my entire face. Leave on for 2 minutes. (I sometimes overshot and made it to 5, no biggie.) It feels very light and when it dries it doesn't crack when you smile. I love that you only have to set it for 2 minutes. Some masks require 10 to 15 minutes, and that's sort of a time waster for me.

Rinse off with water. Since the mask really adheres to the nooks and crannies of the face, like the sides of the nose, I use a gentle exfoliating sponge to slide it off these places. Your fingers will do, but will take a little more work. After rinsing, my skin felt clean but not tight. My face was matte but soft, and the usual redness around my nose had subsided a bit. (Brightening effect is temporary however and is probably due to simple capillary vasoconstriction from washing the face.) Best of all -- the blackheads on my nose had disappeared! Baby pimples threatening to burst to the surface were averted! The mud and kaolin are great at sucking out the oilies. It feels like the mask preps my skin for moisturizing.

This mask is great for that time of the month when your hormone levels are elevated. It really helps calm my skin. Like all purifying masks, it has a bit of a drying effect. So don't forget to moisturize after washing it off.

Overall experience was great. Packaging, texture, and smell are this mask's strong points. Deep cleansing properties are also good, but I can get the same effect with a less expensive mask, which gives me second thoughts on purchasing this mask.

Finally, my Ahava Mud Mask arrived 1 day earlier than expected. I immediately tried it when I got home. Texture is resembling to a paste consistency meaning its not your usual mud mask. Scent is not that pleasant though. Need not to apply much, 3 squeezes off of it is enough to cover the whole face. During its 2 minutes stay on my face, I felt its tightening effect but is a little stingy. Upon rinsing, my face is totally matte! However, red bumps suddenly appeared after I rinsed it off. I woke up the next day with totally matte, oil-free face sans the red bumps (assuming its my face's immediate reaction to the product). Overall, its worth the try and would like to buy the full size soon.

A great product from Ahava. This is the first time I heard of the brand so I was not really expecting too much. But after trying this mud mask out, I can really say the brand deserves attention from me. The mud mask works instantly. It bightens my face just after one wash. The skin will feel velvety to touch. The texture is perfect. It has granules but they are fine so there's no scratchy feeling. The smell is just right for a mud mask and it dries fast. It is a bit difficult to remove though so washing off with warm water works. I cant really comment on its deep cleansing properties as I have used it only for two weeks, about five times. This is a great buy! I am considering purchasing this once I am done with the sample.

After a week's worth of exams, this sample size was a godsend. I was really surprised by how brighter my skin looked after I used it the first time. It's easy to use too when you're looking for a quick pick-me-up for your face. My skin felt a little bit tighter though after I used it. I'm not sure if that's one of the effects. I'm a little concerned about the smell but I can ignore it if my skin would look better after a quick wash with this. Will definitely buy this!

This is my 2-minute facial spa. Unlike the common masks sold in the market (peel-off and cotton soaked masks) I love the idea that I don't have to deal with time-setting and facial engineering to make this thing work. I just have to slap in on my face and wait for two minutes, rinse and i'm good to go. I use it twice a week and noticed how my skin produces less sebum and that my pores has behaved a bit. I also love how it makes my skin beautifully absorb my facial creams / moisturizers. Definitely a perfect match for my oily combination skin.

The effect of the AHAVA Purifying Mud Mask after using it was amazing! My face looks brighter, feels softer, and feels cleaner and fresher! What's pretty amazing about this is that it only takes up 5 minutes of your time to accomplish a softer, brighter and fresher looking skin! I'm not so into the smell though, though it is understandable as this is a organic "mud" mask. When your face looks dull and needs a good scrubbing, just use this product and in an instant, you'll see the difference! Will definitely buy its full size after I finish using the sample I got from Sample Room :) I just hope AHAVA will put up more stores for it to be more accessible to everyone :)

There is that earthy scent but is not bothersome. It did not irritate my sensitive skin and I don't have to leave it on for too long. 2 minutes of waiting and I'm ready to rinse.

This is the first time I’ve tried Ahava Purifying Mud Mask and I’m glad I got a hold of this sample before it got sold out. Upon applying on my skin, the texture was okay, the smell was earthy but not overpowering like I was expecting it would. I applied a little more on the areas that I was oily, and then left the mask for more than 5 minutes then washed my face with warm water. My face felt smooth after and noticed it was brighter. I actually used a facial scrub after just to remove those white and black heads that surfaced after using the mask. Two days after, my skin still feels smooth and less oily on the t-zone area. I’d definitely buy a full size once my sample runs out.

After reading how mud works, I have high expectation for AHAVA purifying mud mask. I was expecting this mask to be a deep pore cleanser and for it to put on minerals on my skin, like food.

Also, I was pleased when I read it was SLS/SLES and paraben free. I thought it’s gonna be good for sensitive skin.

I was surprised when I read the direction to wash it off after 2 minutes. Other masks that I have tried recommends leaving it for at least 15 minutes. I was skeptical that it would work that fast. So I initially planned on leaving this mask on my face until it dries.

Applying the mask was a breeze. I first squeezed about half a teaspoon onto a plate and used a fan brush to apply. It was a joy to apply and I did not mind the scent at all, compared to other mud mask that I have tried.

The only downside to this was that I felt some stinging in some parts of my face, on the left jaw( where I have some dried acne) and right cheekbone. I guess it might be the product working? So I left it on for a few minutes(definitely less time than my original plan) , then washed it off.

Is the beauty worth the (some) pain?

With this product? The answer is yes. With a few minutes to spare, I’ve got the glow of someone who just got a sauna and a massage! I loved touching my face every so often, even my pimple bumps appeared smoother.

Thanks sample room team!
