So last year for Mother's Day my husband gave me mud….yes, you read that right…MUD! Guess what…I LOVED IT!!
Ok, let me give you a few more details on this mud. A few months before Mother's Day we watched an episode of Shark Tank. One of the people trying to get a deal was a gal named Lauren and her company was called Alaska Glacial Mud Co. I really loved her story and thought her product looked great. I guess I must have gone on and on about it during the episode. My husband secretly noted that I was interested in the product and a few months later he ordered me some for Mother's Day!
You may still be wondering what the product actually is….well it is MUD or more accurately, glacial clay, from the Copper River Delta in Alaska. It is used as a facial masque. You just apply an even layer of the clay on your face and let it dry for 15 minutes. Then you rinse your face with warm water….and your skin feels AMAZING!!!
I really can't stress enough how great my skin feels after I use this mud masque! The other wonderful thing is that the product is natural. It is amazing to read how many active ingredients are found naturally in this clay!
The facial mud comes in unscented, vanilla lavender or lavender peppermint! I have tried all 3 and I love them all. My favorite is lavender peppermint!! The scents aren't too strong, but smell wonderful!
She also offers a handcrafted exfoliating mineral soap bar that is fantastic! It works so well to exfoliate and can even be used as shampoo!
I have to say that the owner and creator of Alaska Glacial Mud Co. is really an inspiration to women! Her story is so great…she has done some amazing things in her young life! I would encourage you to read more of her story, HERE.
As much as I hate to show this picture….here I am with my 2 older girls….we had a facial night! It was so fun…my 8 year old wanted to do her whole body because her face felt so good!
So overall….mud for Mother's Day wasn't such a bad gift after all! Big score for my husband!
Be sure to stop by the blog tomorrow for a GIVEAWAY….you could win a set of ALASKA GLACIAL MUD for yourself!!
