After earning an Amazon Gift Card I had no idea what to do with my money. I started looking for skin products and stumbled upon a clay mask. After extensive research and reading reviews I decided to buy Health and Beauty Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay, “World’s Most Powerful Facial.” As someone that was suffering with awful cystic acne I read that the mask would help with my acne so I decided to give it a shot and bought 2 pounds worth of the clay.
Made with 100% Natural Calcium Bentonite Clay the container says “Feel Your Face Pulsate!” The reviews said that you needed to mix the clay, which is a powder with Organic Raw Apple Cider Vinegar so I bought the Bragg’s brand in order to create the clay paste. After mixing equal parts of both the clay and the vinegar you mix and apply the clay to your skin. Personally the vinegar smells so gross, but the benefits of the vinegar to one’s health and skin is insane.
The clay is messy to apply but when it is on and it begins to dry and slowly crack. You can actually feel your face pulsate. It becomes very tight on one’s skin and you feel it working. After a couple uses, anytime that I do get a pimple I apply this mask on my face and it dries the pimple really fast and pops them without me having to pick on them. The mask is removed after 10-15 minutes and with warm water the clay dissolves and feels smooth on one’s skin.
I’ve seen this mask work great so far and it makes your skin feel so fresh and relaxed after. The product says that you should do it once a week and after doing it for about 5 weeks I have seen a difference in my skin. The clay works deep into your skin and helps clean out your pores and even helps target the stubborn blackheads on your nose. A good tip to know is that you should use very little amounts of both the clay and the vinegar because it lasts a good amount with just one tablespoon of the clay.
The clay is not only for the face but can also work as a body wrap, foot soaks, chilled clay knee packs, etc. If you do decide to leave on the mask for more that it says your face will get a little red from the tightness of the mask on your skin but it usually leaves within 30 minutes.
This clay mask was a great find as my first Amazon purchase since I had been trying to find a good clay mask with a good reasonable price. I would definitely recommend this clay mask for anyone that suffers with acne or just wants to clean his or her skin.
