What does the product description say?
"The mud mask that started it all, this facial treatment exfoliates with volcanic pumice rock to help smooth fine lines and soften skin’s texture, while natural clays lift impurities without removing skin’s essential oils."
WIMJ summary

This product contains camellia oleifera leaf extract. This ingredient help neutralize free radicals in skin. By doing so, they might be able to prevent early signs of aging (like fine lines and wrinkles), at least to some extent. These ingredients will not be able to "reverse" signs of aging.

What does the product description say?
"YOUTHMUD® is a skin-transforming clay face mask that intensely exfoliates, revealing softer, smoother, more glowing skin in as little as 10 minutes."
WIMJ summary

This product does not contain effective exfoliating ingredients. It might be able to deliver physical exfoliation, that is scrub off some of the dead cells on the surface of the skin. We do not recommend physical exfoliation, because it is not uniform (some bits of skin can get exfoliated too much while others not at all). It can also traumatize the skin and aggrevate acne and other skin conditions.

WIMJ summary

This product contains antioxidants (camellia oleifera leaf extract) that can help neutralize free radicals in skin. By doing so, they can lessen the damage the skin gets from the UV light (sun).

The following ingredients - camellia sinensis leaf also can have an antioxidant effect, but there is less evidence to confirm their effectiveness in skin.
