A lot of cosmetic companies came out with mud cleansers recently, but are they worth the hype? They absolutely are. Mud packs are famous for cleaning and detoxifying skin and are good for all skin type. If your pores need some cleaning and you need a quick fix, this is a product that you should get your hands on.
So, what are some ingredients to look for when searching for a mud cleanser? Kaolin, French and Moroccan clay, Dead Sea mud, Volcanic mud are some to dabble with if you don’t know your Mud 101. But cleaning and detoxifying skin are not the only reasons to try it. These skin care muds are therapeutic for a lot of skin issues like psoriasis, rosacea, and acne. They are also excellent sources for anti-aging and collagen boosting properties. I say good enough reasons to make them your skin’s best friend.
So, recently I tried two mud cleansers. First being the Pixi Beauty’s Glow Mud Cleanser and the second, the Loreal’s Pure Clay Cleanser. While I don’t want to start the Battle of the Mud Cleansers, I really want to know if one is better than the other or if both really deserves the accolades they’ve been getting. So without much adieu, let the mudslinging begin. Hopefully just on my face.
The Glow Mud Cleanser by Pixi is a gentle mud cleanser with 5 percent glycolic acid. I love glycolic acid in lower percentages cause it exfoliates to increase cell turnover to give that dewy complexion that we all want. But if you’re worried that you’ll end up with dry skin, prepare to be pleasantly surprised! The Aloe Vera in this product will leave your skin feeling hydrated and so so soft. I recommend it to my girls with dry to combination skin.
This is for my oily girls. It actively works to purify skin from dirt and controls excessive sebum production thanks to the three mineral clays: Kaolin, Montmorillonite, and Moroccan clays. All three works to tighten pores and improves the overall quality of the skin. This cleanser also includes Red Algae extract, which helps to increase the skin’s moisture retention capabilities.Upon trying this cleanser, I loved how it immediately brightened my skin.
What are my final thoughts about both the cleansers? Both are top notch products but for different skin types. If you prefer the squeaky clean feel and have a more oily skin type, I suggest you try the Loreal’s Pure-Clay Cleanser. If you want a moisture boost and lean towards the dry to normal skin type go for the Pixi Beauty’s Glow Mud Cleanser.
