When I checked the website for the Gr8ful Stimul8 Mud Instant Skin Transformation Treatment, the claim was that the product could destroy acne, smooth out wrinkles, fight free radicals, reduce age spots, ward off eczema and balance energy (both physically and spiritually). This treatment has also been said to shorten colds and other respiratory illnesses. With claims like these, I thought the $70 price tag was a bargain.

I followed the instructions and used the product for three nights in a row and then continued use once or twice a week. It had a strong medicinal/herbal/earthy smell to it, while the consistency was creamy with a few sharp pieces. I felt a tingling around my nose area upon application 

Afterward, my skin felt smooth, my tone was somewhat evened out and eventually I noticed clearer pores. I felt no irritation at any point while using the product. In fact, my skin was left feeling moisturized. Unfortunately, the Stimul8 Mud did not destroy my acne, nor did it smooth out my wrinkles – though it did reduce the color of my age spots a bit. As far as the rest of the claims, I can’t say that it balances energy or shortens colds; the claims that it’s a “miracle” and “pure magic” is a bit much.

Gr8ful Stimul8 Mud is a blend of seaweeds, clays, botanicals and essential oils. It’s 100% natural and 100% vegan. It has a shelf life of three months, but when I contacted the company, I was told it can be used for a year safely (though it is most effective when used during that three-month period).

I suspect that this product would be more effective for younger skin as a preventative method for signs of aging. I would use this product again for the smooth, moisturized feeling I got, but the price is a bit high for the experience.
