The packaging itself would be quite classy if it weren't for the "Little Sexy" part which makes no sense. As you can see the item is paraben free and suitable for vegans. It was designed as a "facial in a jar" for use backstage in Hollywood to make actors' skin look noticeably radiant and glowing.

The reviews I read of the product all mentioned the tingling, which GlamGlow says tells you it's working.
Like I said, I paid £16 for the product, which knowing what I know now makes it a huge rip off in my opinion. The box seemed quite large but when I opened it I almost needed a magnifying glass to find the tiny pot of product within. I don't recall the Jet2 brochure having the item weight, but if it did then I must have missed it in my excitement. I spent £16 on 15ml of product! You can buy larger versions for about £35 for 50ml.
I wasn't very happy that I had spent this much on what is effectively a trial size product. After the first use I have estimated there is about enough left for two more uses, if I am sparing (which I was the first time!)
The product itself is a dark green muddy colour (hence the name!) and contains volcanic minerals and sea clay, amongst other things. I used a cosmetic spatula to spread a very thin layer on my face. The mud also has small leaves in it which are difficult to spread and most just fell off my face so they were pretty pointless!
The product hardened quite quickly but I can honestly say I didn't feel any tingling at all, which is very odd since I've read one or two reviews of this product where the person had to remove it because the stinging was too much! I have very sensitive skin which is prone to mild rosacea but this was very comfortable to use. I left it on for about 15 minutes.
When I removed the product my skin felt soft and supple. The next day a friend commented, completely unprovoked, that my skin looked very fresh and vibrant. I felt that it cleared the pores on my nose very well.
The downside is the cost. After one use I don't have much left!
It is going to work out at about £5.33 per application. Just as well I got it in a sale, or it would have been £8.33 per application! I don't mind spending a lot of money on a high end product if it is going to last at least 8 weeks but I think this was a complete rip off for the price I paid. I am a little annoyed that I didn't notice that there was only 15ml in the pot before I purchased.
I would recommend this product based on results but I have had the same result with other mud masks such as Good Things Five Minute Facial which is £3.99 for 100ml in Boots.
Have you every made a rash purchase and gone on to regret it?
