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.
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.
