I like that Malibu Mud is natural and gluten free. It goes on nice, dries fast and leaves my skin glowing. I have dry skin so I use Malibu Mud once a week and it does not dry out my skin like other mud I have tried. I will be purchasing more Malibu Mud when my jar runs out.
I finally found the holy grail of all skincare products and need to rave about it. It is so obvious that the creators of Malibu Mud have their consumers absolute health and well being at heart. I’m an experienced, very choosey skincare collector and I’ve used some of the top rated, most expensive products on the market. My mind has been blown after discovering the quality of Malibu Mud and the power of the combination of ingredients they’ve carefully chosen. I call it my 10 in 1 miracle because their 10 ingredients literally target everything you’d desire in your skincare routine all in one product. Ladies, we especially know how rare that is!! My skin has never felt so clean to the pores, hydrated, bright and clear of inflammation. My skin also tends to be sensitive to change in weather while traveling, so I take Malibu Mud with me everywhere I go. It’s the only product that has kept my skin balanced and healthy, no matter the environment. I can confidently say this product has won the #1 spot on my list. Malibu Mud, you’re a miracle that I can’t get enough of!!
Pros: this mask is very cosmetically elegant. It goes on smoothly and evenly with zero tugging at my skin. It has great ingredients. It is already mixed up so there is no prepping phase. It is all ethically made in the United States. It was gentle and helped with some minor breakouts along my chin
Cons- I don’t think the lavender essential oil was needed in this mask. It doesn’t add to the experience for me and I have had irritation from essential oils before. I dislike fragrance in any form in my skin products. Lavender essential oil is still fragrance in my opinion.
Conclusion; this mask is as close to perfect as you can get in a mud mask. It has everything you could want and only maybe one thing you don’t. I also feel good about this business receiving money because they employ good business ethics.
This is a very clean and solid mud mask. Great for face or body. Helps keeps pores tight and face clean. Recommended.
Easy to apply as a deep gray mask which dries to a dark teal green after 5 or 10 minutes and can then be rinsed off or removed with a damp washcloth. The latter approach is easiest (use a dark washcloth to prevent staining) and you can then follow with toner, serum, and moisturizer - BUT despite this being a mud mask, it really doesn't leave your skin particularly dry. Overall this is great to work with and can be used more frequently than a typical facial mud mask if desired without any related redness or irritation.
Lately b/c of the mandatory wearing of masks, my skin has been breaking out. I decided to give this facial cleanser/exfoliant out and I love it! It has really helped clear up my skin and the smell is very pleasant. My face feels very refreshed/exfoliated and cleaner after using the product. You could say it "breathes" better :)
Gentle mud mask, that leaves skin feeling very clean and soft, without over-drying. Apply and let dry—takes 20 to 30 minutes—before rinsing off. The dark color can stain washclothes and towels, which is a downside, and can be hard to rinse all the mud from nooks and crannies without a vigorous wash, but other than that, no complaints. Nice, solid ingredient mud mask, that's all natural and doesn't test of animals. Gentle enough for a wide variety of skin types, and ages.
Thank you, SW! It can be helpful to use older washcloths if you rinse off Malibu Mud in the sink, or hop in the shower for a warm rinse and the mud should wash off easily. We're glad you like the ingredients, and thank you for trying Malibu Mud!
I have quite a collection of mud masks - this one, Malibu Mud, just rocketed to the top of my favorites!!! I thoroughly enjoyed using this. The SCENT is just WONDERFUL. The mud itself is smooth and just a bit exfoliating. It was fun to rub this on my face and body. It felt quite “spa-like.” The color was really neat too. When I was applying, I thought it was gray, but I think it dried to a powder blue!? Also, it dries very quickly, which is convenient. This does need some thorough rinsing - I did this in the shower. I had no irritation and the mud did a great job with clarifying my skin.
This mud seemed high end. I don’t know what mask they would put on your face at some ritzy spa in Malibu, but I imagine this would be like it. Everything about it just seemed like a cut above the rest. I have used a lot of mud masks, particularly I like the Dead Sea mud masks because they offer so many detox benefits. This one seemed ultra-filtered, the mask was smooth and silky to apply, not grainy or sandy like some I have tried. It dries light/white similar to a clay. When dry it smells like a bare minerals powder foundation. When wet it has this beautiful hint of lavender and maybe a note of citrus.
Some masks are not thick enough or you have to apply a lot to feel like you get a good layer. This one covered my face fully without applying much. I was a little skeptical of paying more for something like this, but it seems like for the amount you actually have to use it’s a really good value.
I applied this to only half of my face because I wanted to gauge how well it actually worked. The side of my face where I applied the mask felt more moisturized overall, and the skin seemed softer. Weeks of use will tell whether my skin receives the full benefits. I’m hoping that the charcoal will help remove any toxins and really cleanse my pores. Overall, high quality like it says!
Never been much for skincare but my wife introduced me to this mask and I’m loving it! It smells like a spa and I feel so refreshed after I use it. I will be keeping this stocked in my bathroom at all times!
I am very strict with what I cleanse my face and body with and this is an awesome mask that is all organic and the lavender is so authentic and fresh. So great that it is locally made too!!!
Thank you, Aricia! Malibu Mud uses only organic or all natural ingredients. Some of our ingredients (like Dead Sea mud, kaolin clay, bentonite clay and charcoal) are designated 'all natural' instead of organic. We take exceptional care to responsibly source all ingredients so you get the purest skincare products. We appreciate your review and thank you for your support!
I've never used face products, but I started using the mud once a week before taking a shower and I really liked it. Goes on easy and dries quickly. I can see it sucking away the oil in my skin, especially my nose. Skin feels great. Now I'm using 3-4 times a week before the shower and my skin is breaking out less and looks a lot healthier. I'm hooked! I'll be using Malibu Mud for a long time to come. Great product!
I love this mask! Not only did the mask really clean my pores but it was just the right balance of being effective but not too goopy.
It doesn’t take ages to dry and it washed off easily, leaving my skin looking clean, soft and refreshed! I really like the organic ingredients and of course so glad it’s cruelty free and made in the USA! I bought a bunch for my friends and family too. 👍
I used to use Aztec Secret clay for years, but I am switching to Malibu Mud because it's so much better. First, Malibu Mud feels much gentler, but more moisturizing. I don't feel my skin pulling/ripping while the mud dries. Second, Malibu Mud comes ready-to-apply, so I don't have to mix the powder myself. Third, it dries much faster. A little goes a long way, so this jar will last me a while. I love the light scent that reminds me of Eucalyptus and that it contains all natural ingredients.
Malibu Mud is amazingly hydrating. I’ve used it several times now and my skin loves it. I end up using less hydrating cream after because my face needs less! A light coat is enough so a jar goes a long way. Love it!
First off, love that it’s made in the USA! But more than that, love that it’s 10 simple ingredients, gentle on my face and makes my skin feel so smooth and refreshed. Even tried it on my dry bumpy back of my arms and it helped smooth and moisturize them. Also convinced my husband to try it and even softened his face, which I love. Never been much of a skin care product person but would buy again! Treat yo self and buy some!
Thank you, Kari! We appreciate your review! Thank you for sharing with your husband... we've found that most guys love Malibu Mud once they give it a try! Thank you!
This is a lovely mask that leaves your skin looking better than before. My pores looked smaller and skin was smoother. It is gentle enough to use frequently. I love Malibu Mud!
Thank you, Nikkcolle! We appreciate your feedback, and we love you too!
I was slightly sunburned when I tried this. I applied the mud mask generously until a thick coat was established. I waited about 30 minutes until the mask was dry. The mud washes away very easily. (Even out of my mustache and beard). I could feel a noticeable difference on my skin, this is a very hydrating mask (not oily in the least bit) The next morning when I woke up I noticed my sunburn had completely disappeared. I would highly recommend this product!
I usually opt for the Orgins clear improvement mask because I have big pores. But I decided to try something new. This mask appealed to me because I am a Cali girl, however, it was even better than I expected. It was much thicker than the Orgins mask and left my skin hydrated. Not to mention I like the packaging 100 times better! If you are a makeup/ skincare junkie like me than this is a must try.
This mask is impressively gently and actually protects moisture from escaping Every mask I have ever used left my face feeling excruciatingly dry, red and hot. I gave up on using any type of mud mask but Malibu Mud actually caused my skin to feel ultra smooth AND hydrated! Totally unexpected results- I love it! I am 58 years old and my skin texture felt like it did when I was 20! I can’t get over how smooth it makes my facial skin. I will try it on my décolleté next! Price is well worth it and more than reasonable. A very little goes a long way too. LOVE-LOVE-LOVE IT!!
Thank you, Karen! We appreciate your review!
