Mud masks have been used for centuries to purify and soften the skin. But when it comes to the quality of the clay used, not all muds are created equal. Biotherm's new Skin Best Wonder Mud is powered by both an antioxidant-rich H-Pluvialis algae-extract and 700-year-old Morrocan-born purifying clay. Extracted from the Atlas Mountains, ghassoul is rich in minerals like magnesium and calcium. North African women have been using this mud for hundreds of years to gently cleanse, purify, tone and nourish both their skin and hair. What makes ghassoul different is that besides possessing astringent, absorbent and softening properties, it is non-drying and can absorb impurities and oils without harming the skin's protective lipidic film.

What this translates to is a mud that is able to minimise pores, refine skin texture and brighten your complexion in just three minutes. Also added to the formula? Crushed apricot seeds to gently exfoliate the skin. The texture of this rich green mud mask is also very interesting. It is so light and airy that it feels like a mousse on the skin. Just apply it on and rinse off after three minutes. It can also be used in a few ways: all over the face twice a week, only on targetted areas like T-zone or on the cheek contours for a contouring effect. We love that this mask is super affordable and that it can be customised to even busy lifestyles, so that in pursuit of that perfect glow, no one gets left behind.
