Hi everyone! Today's post is my first post ever reviewing a face mask and cleanser! That means plenty of pictures of  ~mah face~ (Okay, okay - just two!) Please, contain your excitement! I was lucky enough to have Premier Dead Sea send me some goodies to review including their Milk Cleanser and Miracle Noir Mask - so let's check them out!

Did You Know...?
"The Dead Sea is one of the world’s natural wonders formed over millions of years at the lowest point on earth, over 1300 feet below sea level. Rich in life-enhancing minerals, the Dead Sea waters, salts and mud have been praised throughout the ages, often credited as the first center of skin care the world has known. Compared to the 3% salt content of ordinary sea water, the Dead Sea contains 32% salt content with relatively high concentration of minerals such as magnesium, calcium, silica, bromide and potassium. Exposure to the Dead Sea water is widely acclaimed for nourishing the skin, treating acne, easing rheumatic discomfort, increasing blood circulation and relaxing the nerves." - From PremierDeadSea.com.

 Premier Dead Sea Miracle Noir Mask
 "A firming mud mask, oxygen mask, purification mask and an exfoliating mask all in one."

The Miracle Noir Mask is black mud that contains Dead Sea mud and minerals, Liposome Complex, oxygen and vitamins.

Miracle Noir Mask comes with a small spatula to spread the mud and a mud bar for removal.

 "It nourishes the epidermis while simultaneously reviving skin cells."

This is my I-Am-So-Stoked-To-Have-Mud-On-My-Face face. The smell reminded me of Vicks Vapor Rub. 

  • Using the spatula, smooth the mud all over a clean and dry face. (Easy enough, right?)
  • Leave on for about 10 minutes.
  • Using the mud block, remove the mud.
Okay. This is where I have to cut in and explain two things: 1. I didn't follow directions. You're supposed to wrap the mud block in tissue paper. My bad but it still worked! And 2. The removal process is pretty freakin' awesome!

I'm not quite sure if you can see it in this picture, but the mud block has magnetic properties and literally pulls the mud clean off of my face. Holy shish-kabob, it was awesome!

At this point, my mom came in to help while I tried to take pictures of the awesomeness that was taking place.

Ta-da! After I removed all the mud from my face, I was left with a oily film. 

  • After the mud has been totally removed and an oily layer is left, clean your face with cleansing milk and cotton wool.
  • Finally, wash your face and dry.
Dead Sea Premier Milk Cleanser
"An effective deep balancing milk cleanser, enriched with Dead Sea minerals and conditioners to provide essential moisture to sensitive skin while gently cleansing and protecting the skin."
    Final Thoughts: I had a blast doing this! I've never really done a face mask before. My mom and I loved the removal process. The oily film was still there even after cleaning my face with the Milk Cleanser which had me worried but it did "dry out" (so to speak) later in the day leaving me with nice clean feeling skin for about three days after. The only issue I had with this was that I couldn't get the pump to open on the Milk Cleanser! I had my mom, dad and brother try and it just wouldn't pop open. I ended up just unscrewing the top and scooping the lotion out.
