Mask of the Week: Josie Maran Whipped Mud Mask in Vanilla Apricot

Once a week, I need a double mask to really clear out my pores and allow the rest of my skincare routine to really take effect. My choice for that task was the Whipped Mud Mask Argan Hydrating and Detoxiying Treatment by Josie Maran. I have this in a lavender scent as well as this Vanilla Apricot scent.


The whipped mud texture is much lighter and less drying than a traditional mud mask. I apply this to freshly double cleansed skin using my elf spatula tool.


In addition to the aesthetically pleasing aspect of looking exactly like an apricot, this has a light scent. It won't bother anyone as it is not heavily fruity or floral. It dries fairly quickly, in about 7-12 minutes, but does not tighten on the skin like a regular mud mask thanks to the 'hydrating' properties added. I made the mistake of using a way too thick layer because there wasn't enough for another application following this one. I used the rest on my neck, which you thankfully cannot see here.

After rinsing, the skin is supple, soft, and smooth. It is prepped and ready to absorb your other products. Make sure to follow a mask like this - drying, pore cleansing - with something extra moisturizing to replenish what you've just removed. I would recommend this line if you dislike the extra tightness of traditional mud masks and if you love colored masks. This is even brighter in person than the photo shows and my lavender version is a fun purple!
