At this time, Foxbrim Restoring has become tough to find, so we have removed it, along with Body Naturals Purifying, which has a shorter shelf life than some. There remain plenty of great options, but we'd like to remind users that the minerals in Dead Sea mud can irritate sensitive skin. For this reason, you should test a small amount on your skin first, perhaps on your inner elbow, before opting for full-face coverage. If you notice redness or irritation, consider another type of mask, such as a gentle sheet mask.
As for top choices, Ahava Purifying is a go-to for many; it's pricey, true, but it offers authentic Dead Sea mud and uses a formula that's not as likely to irritate sensitive skin as some. Majestic Pure Natural makes a good choice, as well, especially for those with oily skin. It's priced more affordably, too. If your whole body is calling out for some TLC, there's MB Herbals, a powdered version that must be mixed with a liquid before use. To some, this makes it quite messy, but you get a half a pound in each bag, making it a strong value. And speaking of value, Spa's Premium is one to consider, as it arrives with a brush that makes application easier.
For something a little different, we added the Freeman Party Pack. You'll receive 12 masks in total, each individually packaged, so this is just the ticket for sharing or for travel. And because it offers several types of masks, it suits various skin types, so no one will be left out.
Erno Laszlo Sea Mud Bar The Erno Laszlo Sea Mud Bar isn't a mask, but if you don't have the time for a full treatment, it is definitely worthy of consideration. Both exfoliating and hydrating, it produces white foam that may make your skin softer and smoother — although you might find yourself grimacing at the cost. ernolaszlo.com
Midwest Sea Salt Company Black Mud If your whole body needs pampering, you'll want to try the Midwest Sea Salt Company Black Mud, which comes in a 20-pound container for covering you from top to toe. Considering the size, it's affordably priced, and it boasts both organic sunflower and jojoba seed oils. midwestseasaltcompany.com
Arianna Elite Collection Antioxidant For a rich and luscious experience, there's the Arianna Elite Collection Antioxidant, which comes with a magnet wand for wiping away the mask and potentially pulling gunk out of your pores. As the mask is removed, a layer of 24-karat gold serum is left behind; it is claimed that this offers anti-aging properties, and it can make the skin glow, to boot. arianna-skincare.com
