Black Rock Mud Co. – MudPot Natural Mud Mask – review and #giveaway ends 3/27

Disclosure: The blog owner (that’s me!) received a product(s) or promotional item from Black Rock Mud Co. to facilitate this review. I received no other compensation for this post and was under no obligation to post a positive review. The opinions contained herein, are my own and reflect my experience with the product(s). Your own may differ.

As I get older, I find that my skin is in need of a little more TLC than I’ve been accustomed to. Gone are the days of just soap, water and a little moisturizer. Who knows, maybe it’s simply age, maybe there are environmental factors involved but my skin seems less bright, less fresh and generally lacking something.

I was recently invited to review a great new mask from the Black Rock Mud Co. – MudPot, a 100% organic and mineral-rich illite clay from the Black Rock Desert in Nevada.

Illite clay is known for it’s mineral rich properties that condition and revitalize as well as draw toxins and impurities from the skin. It’s naturally soothing to the skin as it revitalizes and regenerates revealing a fresher more glowing skin.

My skin is rather oily, so I’ve used this buttery smooth mask twice a week. I let it dry completely and then rinse with warm water followed by a splash of cold water. My skin looks fresh and health and is much smoother and feels softer than it has in quite a while. I love this stuff!

You’ve heard me say many times, before, that whatever we put on our bodies ends up IN our bodies and simply put, there is nothing in this product that worries me in that respect. MudPot comes from deep within the earth the way nature intended… buttery, odorless, pure…truly a rare gift from Mother Nature. This mineral rich illite clay contains over 50 naturally occurring trace elements that are beneficial and promote healthy skin, including: Calcium, Phosphorus, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, and Zinc.

The MudPot experience is 100% natural and completely free of chemicals, dyes, fillers, preservatives, and scents. Your skin will feel clean, energized, refreshed, and revived.

The packaging is recycleable and the cute little box is actually embedded with wildflower seeds! When you’re done with it, plant it in your garden and say thank you by gifting the Earth for her bounty in your life!

You can purchase Mudpot Natural Mud Mask on their website and they’d love to connect with you on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest too.
