TheFaceShop's White Mud Nose Pack Review

I had read great reviews about the White Mud Nose Pack with some reviewers posting pictures of how the nose pack got rid of their white heads and blackheads at one go. So naturally I got very intrigued and wanted to try it out. Based on some reviewers, the product is only sold in the US so when my sister went on a course-trip to Korea (where TheFaceShop originated), I asked her to please scout the stores and get me one. Alas, she came back empty handed but she did buy a Black Head EX Nose Clay Mask. Last weekend, on a quick shopping stop I had with my sister at the Pavilion Bukit Bintang, we stumbled upon the White Mud Nose Pack at TheFaceShop's outlet there and I squeeled, 'Hey! I've been looking for this!'. I picked up a tube smiling to the counter.

The White Mud Nose Pack is a slap-the-gunk-on-your-face-and-let-it-dry-then-peel-it-off type of product. It is formulated with White Mud and Burdock extract and aims to clean and clarify pores.To use, just spread  the white mud paste all over nose area and leave on for 10-15 minutes. When completely dry, slowly peel from the bottom up and finish with a toner.

The White Mud Nose Pack comes in a soft white coloured plastic tube with a screw-on cap. The mud chocolate coloured label with the name of the product printed on it gives a soft contra to the white coloured tube. Quite nice to look at, really. The label  pasted on the back of the tube is packed with information and list of ingredients.
Ingredients: Water, PVP, SD Alcohol 40-B, Polyninyl Alcohol, Titanium Dioxide, Sodium Magnesium Silicate, Butylene Glycol, PEG-100 Stearate, Sodium Citrate, Methylparaben, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Illite/Water/Propylene Glycol/Arctium Butylparaben/Ethlyparaben/Propylparaben/Biotin Artemisa Princess Leaf Extract, Citric Acid, Fragrance, Allantoin.

The white cap unscrews open revealing a small hole in the opening for the mud paste to flow out of the tube.

The nose pack mask is basically a very sticky and gooey white gunk. It has a sticky texture and it sticks to my fingers as I spread it over my nose. The residue that got stuck to my fingers is quite difficult to wash off with water. I had to scrub them off with my fingernails! I guess that is because the mask is made to have a rubbery texture when dried to help it cling to the skin.

The White Mud Nose Pack has a flowery smell almost like rose water. The scent is tolerable and does not  bother me at all. It took about 15 minutes to dry completely. Peeling the dried paste off my skin is done easily without any pain. The nose pack did took out some white heads. I actually tried the product after I had scrubbed my face so the effect of the white heads coming out is not that great. I think I have to try it on my husband since he has a lot of white heads on the nose.

Verdict: I have mixed feeling about this product at the time being. It is quite messy to apply but peels off easy taking out some white heads along with it. At the moment, I don't think I would repurchase this again since there may be some better options out there in the market.

Price: RM19.90 at TheFaceShop outlets anywhere. I bought mine at the Pavillion Bukit Bintang.
