Hot Cloth Volcanic Mud Cleanser & Mask 150ml


Our version of a hot cloth cleanser with a twist, Volcanic Mud Cleanser & Masque is a gentle pH-balanced facial cleanser which can also be used as a deep pore cleansing face masque,recommended for all skin types. It is highly effective due to the exfoliating properties of glycolic acid, fullers earth and the blend of natural active botanical extracts. Vegan friendly.

This product is excellent as part of a 2 step cleansing program. Although this cleanser does remove make-up, if you do wear thick foundation we recommend removing first with our First Cleanse Oil and using the Mud Cleanser as your second cleanser and morning cleanse. Learn how to cleanse your skin properly HERE (really worth a read). As this cleanser contains acids, it can not be used to cleanse your skin before using our chemical peels..

For deep pore cleansing and gentle, daily exfoliation, the Volcanic Mud Cleanser contains fuller’s earth, glycolic acid, aloe vera and a blend of natural oils which lift away impurities, dead skin cells and excess oil gently but effectively. It is ideal for people who like a cleanser that can be rinsed off or removed with a warm flannel. Volcanic Mud Cleanser has a velvety texture that leaves skin feeling ultra clean but never dry or tight.

Use as a daily cleanser twice a day or a deep, pore cleansing masque 2-3 times a week.

How does it work?

This is our version of a chemical exfoliating cleanser, rather than using an exfoliating cloth to remove dead skin, the glycolic acid in this cleanser/masque helps to gently loosen the dead skin, while the avocado oil in this product makes it an excellent treatment for dry, dull, dehydrated and ageing skin. Avocado oil is highly penetrating and contains essential fatty acids, proteins, minerals and vitamin E and is known to be a great skin healer so it's also excellent for acne or hormonal blemishes. The oil also aids skin regeneration and is highly nutritious. The fuller’s earth helps to draw out impurities leaving the skin clean and refreshed, whilst extracts of chamomile help soothe inflammation and redness.

Skincare tips

To use as a cleanser, massage one pump onto dry skin over face and neck, apply a little water to gently lather. Rinse with tepid water or remove with a flannel, rinse your flannel in hand hot water, wring out and place over the face until the flannel is cool, remove the cleanser and repeat the cleansing process a second time. Can be used morning and night. To use as a deep cleansing masque, apply a thin amount to clean, dry skin and leave for 5 minutes, can be used as a masque 2-3 times a week.

When using any cleanser an toner is always advised to balance the skin's PH. For dry, sensitive or mature skin we recommend the Revitalising Ginseng Toner to purify the skin after cleansing, for normal to combination the Purifying Calendula Toner and for oily/problem skin the Detoxifying Eucalyptus Toner.

When using any product containing glycolic acid you must use a moisturiser with a SPF of at least 15 during the day, if you plan on sunbathing or visiting a hot climate use a minimum factor 25.

If your skin is hyper sensitive then this product is not recommended, particularly without a patch test.

Amanda Recommends – I LOVE face flannels, I really don’t think you can beat removing your cleanser with a nice, fluffy flannel which is why we now have the option that you can buy your cleanser along with a high quality, super soft, 500 thread Egyptian Cotton flannel. Always make sure you use a clean flannel every time you cleanse.

This a is a gorgeous cleanser that really makes my skin glow. It’s deep cleansing and smells great too.

Amazing product! i use it after first cleanse oil. once a week i use it as a mask, and the rest of the week as a cleanser. Deeply cleanse your skin leaving it soft and moist. This is my second bottle. And honestly, not the last one.


This is, hands-down, the best cleanser I have ever used. Years of bad skin and thousands of pounds on products and I think I have finally found my Holy Grail of cleansers... I live in earnest and perpetual hope that your R&D team will come up with a solution to the pump and its inability to deliver the last dregs of product at the bottom of the bottle. Perhaps something like the REN pump bottles or like the pump bottle you supply your Hyaluronic Acid Serum? If it was just a tiny bit remaining I would be OK but it's actually a substantial amount left over hence the suggestions.

I brought this product for a deeper clean but it really didn't agree with my skin! I tried it for about 3 weeks but it really flared up my acne again, definitely going back to my blue cleanser also by Bravura it's perfect !!!


Bravura's products are absolutely lovely. Most other products I've used in the past never quite managed to do what they promise and I couldn't seem to keep my blackheads away but Bravura's products work like a charm. This cleanser in particular is excellent at doing just that. Their customer service also deserves an A+ rating.


An excellent cleanser effective at getting skin clean and smooth without drying. It's best on a damp skin otherwise it's too dry to use but leaves me glowing. As others have said the pump isn't strong enough to work well.


I used this as my second cleanser in the evening and it really is a lovely cleanser, but like many of the reviewers have already mentioned the packaging really is awful and this lovely cleanser deserves so much better. I've not been able to finish using it sadly as I had to resort to removing the pump and using it to scoop the cleanser out of the bottle and the pump no longer reaches far enough into the bottle to reach the remaining cleanser stuck at the bottom. I would love to re-purchase, but not until the packaging is improved. Maybe a pot similar to the ones used for the moisturisers would be better packaging for this lovely cleanser.

Love this cleanser just hate the packaging. When it gets low you have to in screw and scrape the cleanser off the pump. Other then that I can't fault it! Leaves my skin feeling really clean and clears up any imperfections definitely recommend, just please Bravura change the bottle.


I love Bravura products and they have done wonders for my skin. This cleanser is a brilliant product and I use this in the morning and second cleanse in the evening; it deeply cleans the skin without being too harsh or drying out the skin. The only negative for me is the packaging which is a glass bottle with a pump. As the cleanser is quite thick, once you get towards the bottom of the bottle I really struggle getting the last bit out and find it really frustrating as I want to use all of it! If this came in plastic/squeezy packaging I would give 5 stars but unfortunately I can only rate this as 3 due to the poor packaging. Please consider changing! :)


Firstly i love this cleanser, it removes all of my makeup with ease without irritating my skin/eyes. However, although the glass packaging is very beautiful, It just does not function very well. The cleansers consistency is just too thick for the pump to work effectively . Its such a shame as this would put me off repurchasing this again, hence only the 3 stars.


the best cleanser i have ever used! i have oily, blemish prone skin and since i started using this my complexion has never been clearer. i use as a second cleanse in the evening, massage it into my skin, leave for a few minutes, then remove with a flannel. it smells divine and leaves my skin feeling soft and revived. a new favourite! i will definitely be repurchasing and would highly recommend. well done bravura!

Absolutely perfect for my skin (balanced, I'd say). Really enjoyed the glow I felt after applying this.


I used decleor products for years but come to a point where I couldn't afford it anymore and I'm so funny about using new products but I come across bravura on Instagram and decided to give it ago plus it's much cheaper and all I can say is goods things about the products to be honest I love them and will stay using them just please don't put your prices up thanks for making my skin so lovely :)


But seriously :) This cleanser is just beautiful. I have used plenty of cleansers, clay-based masks, treatments etc but this is unlike any other. It smells incredible (fresh, earthy and slightly zesty - mmm!). The texture is gorgeous, it's 'wet' enough to massage into the skin and just works the moment it is applied. Leaves my skin feeling revived, radiant, smooth and lovely. It doesn't dry out the skin like most clay masks, but the fuller's earth in this is just magic. My skin perks up after using this and looks like it has been re-born. Incredible stuff. Need to stock up a lifetime supply. Thanks, Bravura!


I bought the Lactic Acid and Mud cleanser. I've only been using a couple of days, but already my skin looks fantastic!. I've always suffered from breakouts. But recently I developed a dry, red patch on a bit of my cheek and chin. The docs said it was prob just excema and due to stress. I tried an aqueous cream, which helped. But as soon as I used your two products, the dryness has literally gone and the redness is slowly disappearing. My skin looks fab!. I too have tried all the expensive creams and cleansers, but because a lot of them are perfumed I either have a breakout or irritates my skin!. Thank you so much, and I'll be recommending your products to everyone!!!


This cleanser I far the best I have EVER used, its so easy and lush to put on I normally leave it on as a face mask every morning, it doesn't irritate my skin or leave it red, it is absolutely gorgeous the smell and texture is lovely, but what amazes me is this product does what I says and more I'm blown away, my skin looks so good right now I don't need to wear any bb creams or foundation, my skins tone is even, my skin is constantly smooth and glowing and blackhead are basically gone and only been using this product just over a week, I'm in love with all of bravura London's products thankyou!


So I have been using this for the last month, so time enough to write a review. I will say, like many of the reviews here that this is the most amazing cleanser. I love the texture and scent, it works brilliantly with my skin (combination and sensitive). In fact I would consider it to be one of the best cleansers I have ever used. I have never seen another cleanser like this on the market, so it's also quite unique. But, I HATE THE PACKAGING! I took it on holiday and forgot to take the pump with it. It was really hard to get out of the bottle, because of the viscosity of the product. When I got back from my hols, I was glad to try it with the pump, but therein lies another problem. The pumps that are sold are too long for the bottles, so you have to guess how much to chop off. If it's too long, it's messy to chop more off, and then (as happened with me) the tube part of the pump split and doesn't work now. I'll never get even 70% of the product from the bottle. What a waste! It's not a cheap cleanser, so unfortunately I will not repurchase this again unless it is repackaged in a jar or preferably a large 'toothpaste style' tube. Please listen to your customers Amanda and repackage this amazing product for us!!! Amanda Comment - Already on to it, unfortunately changing packaging takes aaaagggeees but watch this space!!


This is gorgeous. I try and use it once a week as a 5 minute mask. It's a pleasure to use though a bit of a pain to get out of the bottle. Can we have a jar not a bottle please?


I received a sample of this but didn't refer to the online instructions or reviews before use. Not something I'd necessarily recommend, but which did lead to a serendipitous discovery... I painted this on to my face, neck and dcollet with a fan brush, got in the bath and relaxed for 20 mins, taking care not to get my face wet. I then gently massaged the product into my skin for 2 mins before rinsing off with tepid water and a muslin cloth. Prior to this, my skin had been a bit congested, with some drier patches and visible fine lines from a couple of weeks of being unwell. Afterwards...? My skin was glowing, absolutely free of any visible impurities and felt ridiculously soft and cushiony. I followed up with a couple of pumps of the Hyaluronic acid serum. Two days later, my skin still looks like I had a professional facial - fine lines have disappeared and even though I'm still unwell, I look the very picture of health. I still can't believe the difference. I'm a convert. I highly recommend this product and will be ordering more.


I have been using this as a face mask on a daily basis and it really is great. It smells nice and leaves the skin feeling really soft. Only downside is that it doesn't taste as good as it smells, so be careful not to get it on your lips when wiping it off!


An amazing cleanser that blew me away the first time I tried it. I've tried many cleansers, but this my favourite! My skin is left feeling so clean, and yet it is very gentle on the skin. I too leave it on like a mask, and I love the effects.


I really like this product it makes my skin feel great and after reading some of the other reviews some good face mask for 20mins. Only downside is the bottle as hard to get out towards the end i think would work better in a jar or a tube.


I use this as a face mask as well as a cleanser, I slather a layer on, bath (don't get any water on it) then scrub off, end result clear skin, it's mild enough to use as often as you like and makes your skin silky soft.


This product is one that I actually really enjoy using, I love its smell and its texture and its working great for me so far. It cleanses my skin beautifully without leaving it dry afterwards and my spots have never vanished quicker in my life!


this cleanser works


Once again, brilliant... Leaves skin clean, moisturised and spot free. Highly recommended.


I could not recommend this cleanser highly enough. It leaves the skin super soft and clarified. Within four weeks i saw a major decrease in blocked pores. Once a week i leave it on for twenty minutes as a mask. its fab!!


Brilliant product! I received a free sample of this, had never thought of trying it but I'm putting in an order today as it worked wonders for my skin. I used it on my face, chest and back. Not only did it cleanse my skin and help clear my pores but it left my skin so soft there was no need to moisturise, no tight feeling and no redness either. Good value too as a little goes along way and you only need to spread it quite thinly to get good results.
