Hello lovely people! ❤❤❤
I hope you all are doing great! 🙂
Welcome to the second post of the ‘Dead Sea Mud’ series – the series where I am reviewing the dead sea mud infused skincare products from Chauth & Nagsan! 🙂

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
Chauth & Nagsan dead sea mud scrub comes in a sturdy, black-coloured plastic tub packaging with a screw-on cap on the top… It also contains an inner lid which sits on the mouth of the tub and prevents any sort of leakage, making the packaging really travel-friendly! ❤
The tub has all the necessary details about the product, including the list of ingredients, usage instructions and cautions mentioned over it! 😀
The scrub is dark grey in colour and has a thick but spreadable consistency… It is loaded with tiny apricot shell particles and even a pea-sized amount of the scrub contains a good amount of granules! The scrub has a mild and pleasant fragrance of sandalwood with hints of other ingredients… The fragrance is really soothing and wouldn’t hurt the sensitive noses! ❤
This dead sea mud scrub is quite efficient when it comes to exfoliating the skin and just half a teaspoon of it is enough to properly exfoliate the entire face and neck… It scrubs away all the dead skin cells and impurities built up on the surface of the skin and sucks away dirt and grease from within the pores, leaving the skin deeply cleansed and rejuvenated! I have been using this scrub for over two weeks (twice/thrice a week) now and I have noticed that it also removes blackheads and whiteheads to some extent (though not completely) with continued use…
This scrub makes the skin feel really soft and smooth to touch post use… I have used it on one side of my face, leaving the other side untouched (just for experimentation 😛 ) and my skin felt quite different on both the sides, once I rinsed it off! 😛
I have a normal-combination skin type right now, with quite a few live acne on my face and a little rash around my lips… The scrub, even though loaded with scrubbing granules, is quite gentle on the skin and didn’t hurt or harm my acne or rash in any way! It also contains the perfect blend of oils and clays and doesn’t leave the skin dry or greasy… Instead, for me, it leaves my skin quite hydrated post use and so, I believe that this scrub would suit all the skin types pretty well and wouldn’t make any skin type go very dry and stretchy after use, except maybe for extremely dry skin types! 😀
