I first came across MUD on Instagram, one of my favourite bloggers posted a photo of her having what looked like a very dirty bath. Curious as to why she was bathing in dirty water and according to the photo’s caption ‘loving it’, I delved a little deeper.
MUD is an all natural, detoxifying bath powder that has been designed to clear your skin and detox your body, all whilst relaxing in a nice warm bath. It is made up primarily of clay; bentonite clay and kaolin clay to be precise. Also in the mix is Himalayan rock salt, sandalwood powder, organic French lavender powder and aloe vera powder. A whole team of super ingredients chock-full of detoxifying properties to cleanse your body of all the toxins, parabens, preservatives and other nasties that build up living our everyday lives.
Not gonna lie, I was a little skeptical about the big claims the producers of this product were making but I tried it anyway. It was lovely. First of all, the novelty of having a mud bath is exciting in itself. The scent of sandalwood and lavender is so therapeutic I was in danger of falling asleep in the bath! The first time I tried it out my skin did feel a little irritated after, but the second time I made sure I rinsed in the shower extra thoroughly and that problem was solved; my skin felt lovely and I was so incredibly relaxed.
That night, I had the best nights sleep I have had in months. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for an excuse to chill-out, have some “me time”, and really truly relax. Go on, you deserve it.
