Having a skin-care routine can mean the difference between having lackluster dull skin and restoring a youthful flow. With so many skin-care items on the market, it can make choosing the right products an overwhelming task. Dead Sea masks should be part of a weekly skin-care regimen, they are not a product you will want to use daily. I do suggest adding a good Dead Sea mud mask to any weekly skin-care routine you have.

No one wants dull skin that looks under-hydrated. Dead Sea mud masks are intended to soften and rejuvenate the skin. A good mask will also help to control acne and deal with cellulite issues. The older I get, the less makeup I wear, so taking care of my skin can eliminate the need for cover up, foundation, and a lot of other base products that seem to just cause acne. I recently tested Calily Life Organic Dead Sea Mud Mask and will be sharing my first impressions, use, and overall conclusion about the mask and its ability or inability to work as part of a weekly skin-care regimen.

What You Want From a Dead Sea Mud Mask

Before I get into what I think about Calily Life Organic Dead Sea Mud Mask, I think it is important to touch on what you really want out of a dead sea mud mask, to begin with. Not everyone knows what they should expect from a product so let’s touch on that for a moment.

It is no surprise that many high-end spas offer Dead Sea treatments, not just for the face but the entire body. The minerals found in Dead Sea products can bring a wealth of improvement to the skin. Looking at the ingredients in a Dead Sea mask before purchase is a good idea. This way you can avoid any substandard products. Look for a mask that contains:

  • Magnesium
  • Magnesium Calcium
  • Bromide
  • Sulfur
  • Iodine
  • Sodium

The ingredients listed are all something you should expect a good Dead Sea mask to contain. Any products without these ingredients are likely not the best dead sea product you could be choosing. Since Dead Sea salt will relieve skin ailments like eczema, acne and even psoriasis always check the ingredients to make sure you're getting a pure dead sea product.

Sure, you can try products will only a few of the ingredients, but you will likely not see the same effects or results as you would if you do a little reading and find a product containing them all. Even after a single use, you should notice the following after using a Dead Sea mask:

  • Noticeably softer skin
  • Cleansed skin and pores
  • Dry skin relief
  • An overall improvement to the appearance of skin
  • Tighter skin

After using a quality Dead Sea product, you should be able to feel the skin and tell that there is a restored softness. Your skin should be cleansed, and pores will minimize once the impurities are cleared. Your skin should feel and look tighter in those areas. There should be a visual improvement to the overall look of the skin as well. A quality product will also give much relief to any dry skin issues you may have as well, such as irritation or any itching that is associated with the dry skin areas, as well as an increased hydration since Dead Sea minerals will restore the natural oil structure to your skin.

First Impressions

I ordered my Calily Life Organic Dead Sea Mud Mask online and snagged it on sale. I first noticed that the mud mask comes well packaged and sealed. Something we don’t always think about is the safety of the seals on our skin-care products. Personally, if I find that any product doesn’t have a seal I am comfortable with or that I feel really keeps my product airtight before it gets to me, I will trash it. The Calily Life Organic Dead Sea Mud Mask was well-sealed to ensure no contamination during the shipping or delivery processes.

Calily Life Organic Dead Sea Mud Mask was a larger container than I expected—you often find these are a bit pricey for the amount you get. I got a full 8.5 oz jar and lucked into a very good sale on it. Normally it runs under $12 but I got lucky and paid much less. Even at regular price, it would still be a great buy. The jar is amber-colored, something you want in any skin-care item. The amber-colored containers eliminate any deterioration due to light being able to contact the product through the container.

Once I opened the jar, I noticed the scent or fragrance of the Dead Sea mask. I was pleased to find there is not a heavy fragrance to this mask. I will also note that it does not smell horrible either. When using a skin-care product, you do not want to have a heavily perfumed product. Especially with a clarifying item such as a Dead Sea mud mask. If I had noticed an overwhelming fragrance I would have likely stopped there and not tested it. Not having an overwhelming fragrance means that my Calily Life Organic Dead Sea Mud Mask does not have unnecessary ingredients in it. It is simple and when you're looking to clarify and restore the skin, you do not want any additional additives in the product that can impact the process.

Using Calily Life Organic Dead Sea Mud Mask

The first step with any skin-care item is fully reading the directions. So many times, I see people in my social media feeds complaining about products not working that I have tried myself and loved, only to find they failed to follow the directions. The instructions on this Dead Sea mud mask are simple and easy to follow. I will note that it does not mention cleansing the skin prior to use but I did use a basic cleanser before I used the mask.

For best results make sure to follow the instructions:

  • Apply a thin even layer to face and neck
  • Allow to dry/stay on skin for 15-20 minutes
  • Rise with warm water and use a circular motion with fingertips as you rise
  • Once fully rinsed pat dry

Whenever you wash or use any cleansing products on your face you should always pat dry with a soft towel. Rubbing or wiping your face to dry can cause your skin to peel and look dull.

I immediately noticed after applying a thin layer to my face that it was not as heavy as some other masks I had been using. It is still a thick product, but I did not have to fight with it to only get a thin layer. I left the mask on for a full 20 minutes before rinsing with warm water. Using a circular motion when you rinse helps to remove impurities and clear out clogged pores, so it is worth the extra effort to remember that step. As a busy mom sometimes I tend to use masks prior to my shower, so I can multi-task rinsing with showering. I also find that I have a lot less water all over my small bathroom sink if I rinse in the shower, so it's time-saving and no water splashes all over.

Final Results

I must say for a budget-friendly skin-care product I was thoroughly impressed with the results after using Calily Life Organic Dead Sea Mud Mask. After rinsing and patting dry, I could feel that my skin was tighter and much softer to the touch. What did I love most? Not having any makeup on fresh from the shower and hearing my husband say, ‘Wow you look really great’. A significant other or a family member tossing a compliment your way who has no idea you just tested a new product is a great way to get an unbiased outside opinion of how the product works.

Obviously, my acne did not disappear overnight—as an adult I struggle with acne outbreaks. I will say that this outbreak was gone in just a few days compared to a week or two like I am used to. Calily Life Organic Dead Sea Mud Mask will continue to be part of my weekly skin-care routine. I was impressed with the overall appearance of my skin, the added tightness, and how fast my acne cleared, and it also seems to be preventing new acne outbreaks from being as bad as they used to be. At 36 years old, my acne used to rival that of a teen going through the acne outbreaks of puberty. Feeling such smooth skin to the touch on my face is great, especially during intimate moments with my husband. I have an overall smooth texture and I notice an evener skin tone since a lot of my dry skin problems are gone as well.

A few days later my skin still looking great and acne and pimples are under control. The only makeup I have on is lip gloss, eye shadow, eyeliner and brow liner. No cover ups or foundations needed. The only uneven skin tones now are my freckles.
