grace & stella beauty products: keep or give?

Before you delve into these product reviews from Grace & Stella be sure to check out last week’s reviews here!

Grace & Stella sent me their Dead Sea Mud Mask and their (business launching – I’ll explain in a moment!) Dr. Pedicure Foot Exfoliating Mask, which were two very new types of products for me, so let’s get to how it all went!

DEAD SEA MUD MASK: I’ve literally never used a mud mask before. I know this sounds like a travesty but I just haven’t so I was intrigued, to say the least. Basically with this one you slather it on your face & neck (I did this before showering) and let it dry and then wash it off.

It says it takes 10-15 minutes to dry but it definitely felt more like a half hour to me. Maybe I slathered it on too thick? Either way… once it dried I hopped in the shower but didn’t get my face wet and followed the instructions on rubbing it off and then washing.

Grace & Stella Dead Sea Mud Mask Review

So what did I think? Well let’s just say that of all four products I’m reviewing for Grace & Stella this is the one I’m ordering again asap!

It does what it promises to do: tightens skin, left my face glowing, and my pores felt pretty clean after!

Should you purchase Grace & Sella’s Dead Sea Mud Mask?

FOR YOURSELF: Yes!

AS A GIFT: Only if you also get one for yourself!

Grace & Stella Dead Sea Mud Mask Review Grace & Stella Foot Exfoliation review

PEDICURE FOOT EXFOLIATING MASK: So this is the product that launched a thousand ships. It was Grace & Stella’s very first and people were so in awe of the results and what it did to their feet it became a best-seller and from there – they expanded their product line (and rightfully so!)

Here’s the deal with the foot exfoliating mask. It works. IT REALLY WORKS. But you need to use this when you’re ready to literally have your feet peel for 9 days.

The steps are as follows: Shower, soak your feet for a bit (aka: get them ready to absorb!) then slip each foot into the bootie and sit around for an hour while the magic happens. Then, shower again and your skin will start shedding. It will keep shedding for 5-9 days until you’re left with reborn again feet. Your feet, have never looked this good believe. But in-between the bootie hour and the brand new baby soft heels is a lot of funky peeling action. So. Don’t use this a week before your wedding, use it a month before your wedding. Don’t use this product during your honeymoon – use it after! This product is amazing, but timing is everything.

I would show you pictures but I really can’t share pictures of my peeling feet on my blog. I have limits y’all. Check Amazon reviews here. Lots of pics there!

Should you purchase Grace & Stella’s Foot Exfoliating Mask?

FOR YOURSELF: Yes, but use when you’re gonna be home alone for a week and not wearing sandals.

AS A GIFT: No. I feel like this one is best ‘gifted’ as word of mouth. Tell your friends about it if you like it but save the gift-giving for something that doesn’t involve so much dead skin shedding.
