A Luxurious Facial Spa Experience with Cellilux Glacial Clay Mask


I love how natural clay masks help firm the skin, tighten pores, control oil and best of all, detoxify the skin. After trying lots of skincare products over the years, I noticed there’s a lack of focus on skin detoxification which, for me, is as important as moisturizing and keeping the skin spot free. How can even the best product penetrate the skin when the skin is choking with a build up dirt, toxins and other products?

Cellilux Glacial Clay Mask and its unique “Ion Factor”
When I first learned about Cellilux Glacial Clay Mask, I immediately zoomed in on its claim to help detox the skin. According to Lifes Miracle Asia, the distributor of LifesMiracle products in Asia, the glacial clay used in Cellilux contains the highest trace of minerals on earth. These minerals have a negative ionic electrical charge which pulls positively charged dirt and toxins from the deep layers of the skin up to the surface.

Made with Mineral-rich Clay and Water
Cellilux’s top ingredient is glacial mineral clay and glacial mineral water from British Columbia, Canada. The glacial mineral clay came from glaciers that formed and melted 10,000 years ago! Yes, it’s like having a part of ice age on your face! It’s specifically listed as Canadian Colloidal Clay. I’ve heard of colloidal silver before but not of colloidal clay so I did some research. Most of the scientific sources are too techy-yawny to read but as a summary, it seems that colloidal clay helps in balancing the ion levels in the soil (source). On the skin, it’s said to be different compared to other clays due to its smaller particles that are able to penetrate the skin better.

Cellilux is not a 100% natural product but the top ingredients compose of minerals and botanical extracts.

Ingredients: Glacial Clay (Canadian colloidal clay), Glacial Mineral Water, Glycerine, Organic Açaí Fruit Extract, Organic Green Tea Leaf Extract, Lavender Oil, Orange EO (fragrance), Caprylyl glycol, Iodopropynyl, Butylcarbamate, Phenoxyethanol

Raving Reviews
If you check out Lifes Miracle Asia’s Facebook page, you’ll be able to read a lot of very good reviews mostly from Indonesian customers who had tried and tested this mask. Some of them even posted before and after photos. Most of the raves focused on how the mask made the skin smoother, firmer and more radiant immediately after first use.

Tingling or Tickling Sensation
When I was sent this product for review, Mun Yee from LifesMiracle Asia told me that I would feel a tingling sensation upon application but I shouldn’t worry about it — it’s the product working its way into my skin. I’ve read about this from other reviews, too. It’s actually quite uncomfortable at first because it’s a warm-cold burning and ticklish feeling. But it becomes soothing and relaxing after a while. I actually love it. The sensation starts to fade as the clay begins to dry.

My Thoughts?
I’ve only used this product four times. After each application, I felt my skin is indeed smoother and my pores seemed tighter or more refined. My skin also felt cleaner. I can’t use this everyday as it can be a bit drying for my already dry skin but I noticed that it’s easier to keep my skin hydrated and moisturized whenever I used this clay mask prior to my usual routine — most likely, that’s the detox boost working it’s magic. I also experienced a temporary pinkish glow after each use.

From Spas in Japan and Europe to our home
According to LifesMiracle Asia, such high quality glacial mud masks used to be available only in high-end spa and facial centers in Japan and Europe. But now, Cellilux makes it possible to bring the same luxurious experience and quality into our daily skincare routine at home. Currently, Cellilux is available in Singapore and Indonesia and had recently launched in Vietnam, too. They are planning to expand to China, Malaysia and Myanmar.

If you want to learn more about Cellilux or make an online order, you can e-mail their distributor in Singapore at munyee [at] lifesmiracle.asia or visit their official website and Facebook page. If you’re from Singapore, you can try out the sample size for S$5 which should last for about 2-3 applications. Not bad for a piece of spa treatment that usually costs $200 a pop!

    This is probably not available in the Philippines. But I’ve tried 2 products like this: Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask, Aztec Healing Clay, and Epoch Glacial Marine Mud

    Honestly, I think I only get exfoliation as a result. But it’s fun to put clay masks sometimes… I feel like I’m doing a spa-at-home type thing.

      Hi Rae,

      The difference between our glacial masks and others is that it mixed the unique “Ion Factor” into the glacial water and it makes the exfoliation more effective.

      Moreover, it has anti-aging ingredients that is well balanced to produce the best results.

      Thanks and regards

    After reading your posts a while ago, I have began to focus more on detoxifying my skin. I’m not sure I can get this here, but I’ll try to see. :)

    I have GoW Some Kind of Wonderful Detoxifying Serum — and honestly, I’m not sure it’s working for me. But I’m sticking with it for now.

      For me, skin detox is really one of those things that don’t give immediate and obvious results but they help optimize your current skincare routine. The funny thing is–just like what I said on my review–I don’t know what GoW Detox serum does to my skin but for some reason, I like to use it. I don’t see any results when I use it but when I don’t use it, I notice the subtle “changes”. I only use it whenever I feel my skin feels extra toxic or when I want to give my skin a “reboot”.

      Hi Rae, I’m not sure whether it’ll be available in the Philippines in the future as they seem to be expanding in South East Asia.

      Oh, I know what you mean about the “spa experience”. Haha, I like that too — and I like how my clay mask face freaks the marbles out of my cousins.

    Indonesia?I haven’t heard it before you review it though,oh my..where I have been? 😀 Is this one like that Quen Helene mint julep mask?I have dry skin so I’m not that into clay thingy since it can be drying. Btw vivi..Your giveaway has such alot of participants!:D I’ve just seen that 101 comments:)

      I haven’t tried Queen Helene but based on the ingredients of Cellilux, it seems really premium. The actual selling price is quite steep, too. I have dry skin too but I think clay is good once in a while for detox.

      Rhassoul clay is good for dry skin. :) It’s the only clay I have at home and I mix it will honey or yogurt or both.

      Oh, it’s because I reply to each entry. I promised to reply to connect more with my readers. :)

      • http://www.lovelycosme.blogspot.com Lynn

        Yes,Queen helene has lower price and loaded with parabens in it 😀 Oh,never tried to mix clay with yoghurt before:O That seems a good idea since yoghurt alone is too oily for me. I tried Queen Helene then sold it on my garage sale thanks to the parabens and..to drying. Currently I use konjac sponge,it contains red french clay.Though what I bought was for dry skin one,it’s still drying:(

        Oh,I see..You’re frenly and that’s one of the reason why I often visiting here :) Some bloggers just don’t reply comments:/ Especially those celebrities bloggers..

          Thank you :) I think probably the celebrity bloggers get hundreds of comments a day so they afford to reply anymore. Oh, you can even mix clay with VCO and use it as shampoo or scalp treatment. I don’t know whether you can buy clay in Indonesia. But if you have dry skin, Rhassoul clay is the most suitable. The others can be too drying.

    Is the only way to get this in Singapore by ordering online? it seems pretty good and I really want to try this out :) I love detoxing products, always makes you feel so..clean afterwards. Although I would love a completely natural, organic clay mask better. tea, such as green tea is a favorite detoxing ingredient of mine :) especially drinking it after a good meal!

    • http://www.ecobeautysecrets.com Vivi

      Hi Missy, yes… unfortunately you can only get it online. I suggest you buy the $5 sample pack first to test whether it’s suitable for your skin or not. :) Oh, have you tried rhassoul clay? It’s my fav clay mask.
