I love the versatility that Face Mud offers: cleansing, exfoliating and acting as a mask. It covers all bases, saving so much time. I could immediately feel it start to cleanse my skin and remove impurities as soon as I applied this mask to my skin. As someone who has limited time, I appreciate that they are trying to consolidate our skincare routines down to 1-2 steps. The versatility of their products save their customers time, keep routines simple whilst minimising consumption.
This mask/exfoliator went straight to work by exfoliating my skin, getting rid of all the debris and providing intense hydration. I also liked the high-quality ingredients and recyclable glass bottle. I like how they kept it simple by focusing on three key ingredients. Natural handmade Australian ingredients with recyclable bottles.
I like the mud formula. It’s light and easy to apply. I love handmade products!

I’m obsessed with Face Mud’s ‘Express spa facial’. As a busy mum, I just pop it on my face before hopping into the shower and then wash it off before I get out. So easy and makes a really surprising visible difference — it leaves my skin super soft, hydrated and glowing. With its main ingredient being Manuka Honey and also containing 16 superfruits and herbs, Face Mud packs a punch. These potent bio-actives work to reveal some very visible anti-ageing benefits. A great unisex product which has makes my husband’s skin look better too!
I adore everything about this beautiful 3-in-1 face mask, exfoliator and cleanser. The combination of sandalwood, manuka honey and orange peel is super earthy. I apply it in the shower and remove after three minutes, gently exfoliating my face as I do so. Throughout this process, the oils along with the aloe vera, apricot and coconut penetrate my skin and my face is left feeling not only clean but extremely hydrated. Love it!
