Nothing like a little Alaska Glacial Mud to turn our thoughts toward Spring. Try the Alaska Glacial Facial in Vanilla-Lavender and Lavender-Peppermint. Both are organic masques that will freshen your skin and make you think spring is truly here. While it is drying and you’re waiting for its magic, imagine water running off icy glaciers! We’re giving you two so you can have a facial with a friend. After you enjoy the trial pack, remember we carry both scents as well as an unscented mud in larger containers.
