MyPure Review: Alva Rhassoul Mineral Wash Cream

Today I am sharing the second review with you from My Pure (who specialises in natural beauty and makeup products!) using Alva's products. Today's post is about the Mineral Wash Cream.

This is an anti-blemish wash however what drew me to the product was that it contains Volcanic Mineral Clay which is suppose to help deep cleanse your skin. You know I am always one to try out different and quirky products! Lava clay's 55% Silica content makes it great for helping your skin. This isn't the first time I have had great results from Silica (I was using it as a supplement for nail and hair growth a few months back) so I know that it has some good benefits to using it!

Anyway....this product can be used all over the body. Simply massage an amount into damp skin. If you have problem skin like I do you can let it sit for a few minuets before washing it off. One of the other things that drew me to this product (and the only reason I know this is from the listing on the MyPure page as it doesn't say it on the back of the tube) is that this can also be used on the scalp as a mineral treatment. I suffer from psoriasis of the scalp thanks to a bad Salon's dye-job so the fact this is a duel action product it great.

So my shower routine has involved using this product A LOT! Let me first say this is a very large tube of product and even though I have using a large amount of this product (150ml) there is still loads left. You do need to remember to shake up the tube before use as the clay sort of separates and you don't get the silty goodness. I was surprised by the consistency of the product it wasn't thick or mud like but rather a thin cream-like consistency that was easy to work into the skin and scalp (and it smelt really nice).

The first thing I noticed after using this was that it was very cleansing, both my face and hair felt clean and free from any residue. My scalp was less inflamed straight away and less painful to the touch. I also noticed that there was less shedding of skin. On my face I could feel my pores felt cleansed and clean and soft to the touch ( please note this product isn't designed for talking off make-up, I use a dedicated makeup remover for that). I think this product is great as creating a blank canvas so that you can then apply any additional spot/facial treatments without anything being left on the skin (including the facial tonic I shared with you yesterday). The fact it can be used on other parts of the body/scalp is just a bonus! I would really recommend trying this!

The inclusion of this graphic means that the product above was sent to me for review. All opinions are honest and all information is correct at the time of writing.

  1. Nice review on this mineral wash cream!

  2. I truly feel for you with psoriasis anywhere, but I found on my scalp was the hardest to deal with, I was very badly affected 3 years ago, triggered by stress. Hope this continues to help you (I had to use t-gel, which smells so medicinal, I hated it!)
