It may seem counter-intuitive to apply mud to your skin in order to cleanse it, but the skin-enhancing benefits of mineral-rich mud have been harnessed for beauty treatments all over the world for centuries.

Antipodes® uses white volcanic mud sourced from central New Zealand’s dramatic central plateau in its new Halo Skin-Brightening Facial Mud Mask to help provide a high-performance detox for a luminous complexion. Blessed with minerals including sulphur, calcium, silicon and sodium, the mud binds to the skin’s oils and absorbs them, helping to carry away dirt and residue once rinsed off.

This divinely scented mask, which has a pure plant fragrance of vanilla pod, raspberry seed and musk, is an effective way to instantly freshen and illuminate your visage.

Completely free of beeswax and honey to ensure Halo’s certified vegan status, other key ingredients in its bioactive formulation include skin-brightening compounds to achieve your lightest, brightest skin quickly and effectively.

Revolutionary antioxidant compound Vinanza® Grape & Kiwi has been clinically shown* to lighten skin by targeting the over-production of melanin that can lead to freckling, pigmentation and uneven skin tone. Extract of prized peony flower also contributes to a bright and luminous complexion, while jojoba esters are an exfoliating compound, so will immediately leave skin brighter and smoother.

Nutrient-rich avocado oil from pollution-free organic orchards in northern regions of New Zealand gives the mask a super silky texture, making it a delight to use with a surprisingly light skin-feel.

Not only is the avocado oil a natural humectant helping to keep your skin moist and hydrated, it is packed with Vitamins A, B1, C and D, and Omegas 3 and 9. It also contains lutein, a component that filters UVA sunlight, making the oil truly “Green Gold” for your skin.

To achieve the best results, lavish a thick layer of this creamy mask over your cleansed face and neck, avoiding your eye area. Leave for 15 minutes, then rinse away thoroughly with warm water. Use twice a week religiously.

This product is suited to most skin conditions, especially congested, dull and combination. It is a deep cleansing product to complement the other products in Antipodes’ skin-brightening range including Juliet Skin-Brightening Gel Cleanser, Apostle Skin-Brightening Serum, Immortal SPF 15 Skin-Brightening Face & Body Moisturiser, Manuka Honey Skin-Brightening Eye Cream and Manuka Honey Skin-Brightening Light Day Cream.
