Erno Laslo Sea Mud Exfoliating Mask and Soap–Not Your Ordinary Mud Pie

My mud pie is better than yours–neener neener neener! Remember how much fun you had as a kid making mud pies? Ever the girly girl, mine were garnished with berries and flowers (stolen from the neighbors yard).  I was filled with that same joyous feeling  when using Erno Laszlo’s Sea Mud Exfoliating Mask ($45). This is no common everyday mud, beauties. Erno Laslo’s Sea Mud contains mud from the Dead Sea, the lowest place below sea level on earth. The mud that settles to the floor of the Dead Sea contains a unique composition of electrolyte balance and organic matter. Dead Sea Mud is excellent for skin exfoliation and refining and softening skin texture.


According to Erno Laslo, some of the benefits of this mask are:

  • unclogs pores
  • restores skin radiance and texture
  • soothes irritation
  • increases plumpness
 After cleansing and toning, apply a layer of this thick, black mask and let dry for minutes, then rinse.  You will need to rinse and rub to get the mask completely off.  As a final step, I always rinse with cool water to close my pores.
The mask dries grey– that’s what made me think of mud pies. And the fact that I enjoyed slathering it on my face a bit too much 🙂

I've been playing in Erno Laslo's Sea Mud Mask!

Make no mistake, this is a deep cleansing, exfoliating mask–not a hydrating one. My skin felt quite dry after so I used my Reviva Labs Hyaluronic Acid Serum and then a heavy duty moisturizer. I applied the mask before bad and the day my skin felt amazing! I swear my pores look smaller and the texture of my skin has improved overnight. Erno Laslo bills this as suitable for slightly dry to extremely oily skin. I have combo skin in the summer and slightly dry in the winter so I will only use this mask once a week or even every other week for deep cleansing.  I think it ‘s great for my combo skin but it is a must-have for more oily skin types.  If  you have oily skin, this mask should be a once or twice a week ritual.
Erno Laslo also makes a Sea Mud Soap ($40) for normal, slightly oily and oily skin.  Fill a basin with warm water, dip the Sea Mud Soap into the water and gently rub the bar over your face. dip the bar back into the water and make a creamy, rich lather in your hands. Massage later into your skin for a few seconds and then rinse 20 times with the same water. Rinse again with warm water.
I won these two products in a contest. I can remember if it was a Facebook or Twitter contest, but I’m really glad I got to experience them. I will definitely continue using the mud mask once a week but I really think the soap if better suited to more oily skin types.
Bottom Line: If you have oily skin, you need to try this Erno Laslo Sea Mud combination!

    Cindy, I think you’re having WAY too much fun doing this!!! (we have pictures like this of my very patient husband letting my daughters put masque on him when they were little….and then snapping his pic while his eyes were closed! It was featured in our “Goodbye slide presentation” when we left our church!)

    • HAHA! When my daughter was little she used to play “salon” and put barettes and bows in her dads hair! I long for those days now!!
