Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay -- 1 lb
A good masque product
It's recommended to use vinegar to mix with this powder but i decided to try lemon juice instead, since i don't want the smell of vinegar on my face the whole night. Lemon juice is acidic like vinegar and also has slight antiseptic, cleansing properties. It mixed very well with the lemon juice, and since i store the lemon juice in the fridge it went on cold and crisp.
Be careful how much of this powder you start out with! You only need a very small amount to cover the entire face; try just a SMALL spoonful to start, as you can always add more. I use a plastic spoon and i don't even use a whole spoonful. This jar will last me a long time.
Previously to this i had always used Queen Helene mud masks but those all have parabens in them so i decided to stop using them. This mask actually makes my skin feel much nicer than Queen Helene products and less dry; i was surprised that this mask does not leave my skin feeling or looking dry at all. The best part is that at least according to the label, there are no parabens or other unhealthy additives in this product.

This stuff is incredible. It's just bentonite clay but wow... I mix it with Braggs ACV to make the pH more acidic and leave on about 20 minutes. I have very sensitive skin, prone to over drying. This mask not only really cleans the junk out of my skin, it also calms down any sensitive blotches I might have going on. It's an emergency product. I try to use it weekly, but I can be such a pain to remove. I follow it with plain shea butter and the next day I always have a great skin day. It's truly incredible.

I love that I can come to this website and find this clay powder at a great price. I remember my mom using this powder for many, many different things growing up, and I've used it since in my home. It looks the same and is just as great as it's been for 20+ years!

I use this clay with apple cider vinegar to make a mask and have really been loving it. Not sure how you would go about getting 1/4-1/2" of it on your face (as the label suggests) but a thin layer seems to do the trick. Really cleans out the pores so be ready for a few pimples a couple days after using (if you are acne prone like me) but I have found that this has greatly decreased breakouts in general. Love the huge amount of product too - should last quite a while.
