Hey guys! It’s the start of a new week and September is just around the corner, so I’m ready to kick things off with a bang.
I recently got together with one of my cousins after a long time (far too long if you ask me) and we were discussing skincare. She happened to mention a clay mask she bought when she last saw me and said she was really liking it. So I decided to finally give it a try.
You can easily find this affordable mask on Amazon. It comes in a one pound tub as shown and it’s an Amazon best seller with over 10,000 reviews! I just had to check it out for myself.
The instructions are simple because as you can probably already tell, it comes in a powder form so it does have to be mixed. You can use either water or apple cider vinegar (I would opt for vinegar, I’ll get to that in a second) and mix equal parts with the clay.
My first time trying it I measured one tablespoon of the powder and one tablespoon of water. It wasn’t a complete success. One: it was too much product and I had a good bit leftover and two: the consistency didn’t feel right to me, it felt too clumpy. Surprisingly though, the mask still did its job and my skin looked quite polished.
Now fast forward to when I tried again, this time with the apple cider vinegar and half a tablespoon measurement, and I was in business. The product fizzed a bit when I added the vinegar and when I mixed it the consistency was fantastic. It looked and felt like a good clay/mud mask. The smell wasn’t too great but I could get past that after the results.
You can leave the mask on for 10 minutes or even up to 20 according to the instructions. With me having sensitive skin, I went for the 10 minutes and boy was the mask doing some work. It dried and tightened my face up like it said it would.
I washed it off with warm water and my face was slightly red. However, the instructions say this is normal and the effect goes away after about 30 minutes and it did! I actually felt no irritation at all, I was floored. On top of all that, my skin looked ten times better than usual as if it had gone through a detox.
If you are looking for a great, affordable facial then this product is the way to go! It’s a best seller for a reason and for the amount you get, this will last you through the season.
