Bioterm Wonder Mud is a clay mask, to put it simple. A green type af clay, to be more precise. And this has some “scrubbing” particles, quite large ones, in fact.
Looking at the ingredients list, we find Kaolin (White Clay) to be the principal active and a little (tiny little) bit of Moroccan Lava Clay. I suppose this gives it its very distinct (but nice) smell.
Clay masks definitely are “back”.To call this one a wonder product, is an overstatement. A huge overstatement, if you ask me. Wonder Mud is just a good clay mask.There are many good clay masks on the market, and you don’t need to pay Biotherm’s price to get a decent one.
The results are ok, at least if you DON’T FOLLOW Biotherm’s advise to “scrub” with the product, as its particles are much too harsh. (Unless you have an elephants’ skin). If you use it as a “normal” clay mask, and leave it to dry for about 10 minutes or so, it’s perfectly ok.
But definitely NOT a wonder, pardon me, Biotherm. You make lovely products, I love your Detox, Red Algae (will be reviewed later) and your Sun products, but this one I’ll skip for the price.
Skin type: all, but I’d say rather oily skins will love this.
Positive points: nice clay mask, gives a very refreshed feeling.
Negative points: quite expensive “wonder” product being a quite ordinary clay mask.
