I FORGOT HOW MUCH I LOVED THIS MASK
So when my acne was really bad I was looking for literally ANYTHING that would work and i stumbled upon this GEM! This mask has always made my skin feel smooth and clean after using it and definitely cleans out my pores with every use. I mix mine with ACV (apple cider vinegar) and though the smell bothers most, I really don’t mind! (i guess cause it was working so well for me that I felt “ehh what’s a little smell for clean skin”) 😂🤷🏽♀️ and I only use once a week. I’m gonna work this back into my routine because i forgot the love i once had for this clay mask!! 🥰 It helped calm down any inflammation I had during break out as well as lighten by hyperpigmentation. I recommend moisturizing very well after using because my skin feel kinda tight after use but i just layer up really well before bed so i don’t have to go through out the day looking greasy lol I don’t have very sensitive skin so if you do maybe mix yours with water but definitely a 10/10 AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay

oily skin & don’t know how to manage? I got you
this post is for all the people who have oily skin and sometimes just don’t know how to deal with it! well i’m here for some tips! I have oily/combo skin and I’ve learnt some important info during my skincare journey that I would love to share with you all 🤗 1. still moisturise ￼it is super important for people with oily skin to keep up with moisturising ! you may think that your skin is hydrated and doesn’t need any extra moisture, but it still really does. if you don’t moisturise, or use products to keep your skin hydrated, your skin can overcompensate with releasing it’s natural oils, which in hand, can make your skin more oily 2. don’t be afraid of oils ￼whether this is oil cleansing or any certain type of oil (rosehip, squalane etc), don’t be hesitant to use these products just because of your skin type. for me, oils have made a huge difference to my skin, especially oil cleansing! one thing to remember with oil cleansing, is that oils attract oils, and therefore are oil soluble. products like this help to get rid of grease, blackheads etc and can be great for oily skin! 3. use products targeted for oily skin ￼I know that this one is quite self explanatory, but here are some products that helped my oily skin become more manageable! - niacinamide. this ingredient is amazing for oily skin ! it helps to decrease oil production from within the skin. my fav product is NATURIUM - Niacinamide Serum 12% Plus Zinc 2% , but I also don’t mind The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% -exfoliation. now with this I don’t mean physical exfoliation, but chemical exfoliation! my favourite exfoliant has to be PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliator this one is my HOLY GRAIL product of them all ! I have many posts on this product so be sure to check those out for an in depth description. - clay face masks. these are good for absorbing oil and giving your face a matte finish. some of my favs are PAULA'S CHOICE - Skin Balancing Oil-Absorbing Mask AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay I hope this helps and if you have any questions, feel free to comment 🌟🥰
First Impressions Aztec Secret Clay Mask
After reading so many good reviews, I bought this today at Target for $7.99. I used water to mix with the powder in a bowl. I tried mixing with my fingers but you definitely need a spoon. I couldn’t get the mix just right at first so I ended up making a bit more than I needed. I layered the mask AZTEC SECRET - Indian Healing Clay thick on my face. It felt nice and cool going on and was easy to spread. Since I had so much I used the rest on my neck, chest and my feet. I kept it on for 20 mins. At around the 10 minute mark the mask starts to harden and pull your face tight... A little bit later it starts to “pulse” on your face. Once I washed it off, my skin felt really clean and everything was so soft. I didn’t have much redness on my face immediately after. My pores were slightly smaller after this first time. I definitely can’t wait to continue with this mask! I will update once I use this mask for a while. Second Impression: Since I still had so much of the mask left, I put it in a ziplock bag and decided to try it again the next day. This time it was a little more intense on. I did wear it for about 5 or 10 mins longer. Right after removing the mask, my face and neck were red all over this time. The next day, my face was very soft and seemed to be less red & clearer. I can’t wait to continue this mask weekly.

Herbal Dynamics Beauty - CACAO & CHAMOMILE CLEARING CLAY MASK I‘ve only used this about three times but this is what I think so far. I have sensitive skin but actually reach for clay masks a lot and never have any problems with them. I applied a layer of this one and as soon as it dries down it started burning slightly, so I washed it off and my skin was a little irritated. That was after probably 10 minutes. The last two times I only left it for like 4 minutes and applied a thicker layer which didn’t dry down in that time. My skin didn’t get irritated at all, but I still got the results from the first time. It helps a lot with my pores, excess oil and some hormonal breakouts which is amazing. It’s probably one of the strongest clay masks I’ve tried so far, so maybe don’t leave it on for too long but it works very well. Plus it legit smells like chocolate and has the most unique texture. Love it as long as I remove it after 5 minutes!

My favorite face mask
If you have remotely sensitive skin, then this face mask is not for you. This face mask has a tingly sensation, and may leave redness due to the tea tree and salicylic acid in it (both of them are famous for redness, but it’s only temporary). I recommend rinsing with a soothing wash if you experience redness. The tea tree is a natural antibacterial remedy that is great for clearing acne and stopping the spread of breakouts. Keep in mind that when using detoxing products, breakouts will follow for a short period, this is only due to the product pulling all of the gunk from deep within your pores so give it a bit to notice clear skin.

My favorite pore refining mask!
I love Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask and want everybody to know it! This product is a pore-refining mask that uses super-powered Australian botanicals to yield the most dramatic of results. It provides a solution for enlarged and clogged pores, blemishes and excessive oiliness. It’s a thick grey/pink clay that dries down A LOT to a thin white mask. It really sucks the life out of your face while you’re using it, but rest assured your skin does not feel stripped once the product is washed off. I’ve been using this mask for a little less than a year now- I decided to try the product because I loved the physical exfoliator from the line and this had even better reviews — and I see why! This seriously CLEARS YOUR SKIN OUT, I’m talking reduces the appearance of pores (a TON), reduces the size/redness/irritation of active breakouts and seems to also help reduce minor PIH for me (bad skin-picking habits! I know, practice what you preach!) For the longest time I didn’t really see the point in having more than one clay mask because I felt they all did essentially the same thing. But man, this Australian clay is a powerhouse, and combined with bentonite clay, the various extracts including aloe vera, vitamin E, kelp, witch hazel and mangosteen, this mask does everything it claims to do for my combination, always congested skin. It is ultra drying while on the skin, like I said, but I find that the other ingredients in the product help to minimize the effects of this and I always follow it up with a nourishing moisturizer or plain squalane oil after to replenish. I would recommend this to anyone struggling with acne, uneven texture and oiliness, including sensitive skin types because of the wonderful list of ingredients. It’s $49 for 2.1oz, which I think is fair because a little goes a lot way and it comes with a little brush to help keep the process sanitary and reduce waste. I will say, the jar it comes in is a lot smaller than I was expecting for some reason, but it is filled to the brim with product. You only need to leave this mask on for 10 minutes to achieve results, and with the brush it makes it a mess free process that I find totally worth the price if you’re struggling with the target concerns of this product. 5/5, I’ll continue to repurchase this!

Youth Mud Mask for the Win! 🏅
My impressions: Recently I tried out the Glam Glow Youth Mud Treatment Mask and now I can not stop using it! 🥰 It is my fall go-to for skin care this season, as well for many of my friends & family members! There is something about the mask that clears up my skin so quickly and gives it the most youthful and dewy look. This mask has tiny beads which exfoliates the skin and works particularly well on oily skin. It reduces oily patches and helps with inflammations and acne! Although this product is very expensive for a face mask, it ranges between sizes (mini-reg-large) so you are able to try out the product without having to buy the biggest size. As I use it in the mornings, it refreshes and brightens my face for the day! With this mask you are sure to get compliments through the day as you gain an instant glow! If I am being completely honest, I would only purchase this product very few times throughout the year as it is so expensive! ($75 USD) When I do use Glam Glow, it is a life saviour and has given me a confidence I never knew was obtainable. Overall rating: I would rate this product 5/5, potentially losing half a star for the hefty price of the mask, but the option of sizes keeps the cost down. Otherwise, I love it!

The Body Shop Himalayan Dreams😊
THE BODY SHOP - Himalayan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask My skin type: Combination/acne prone/sensitive The Body Shop is such an awesome company to me because they make the most amazing masks that actually work on my skin. ❤️ Out of all their masks, this one is my number one. It has great tea leaves, tea tree oil, and of course charcoal to create an awesome mask. This one is definitely for those acne prone because it really does a great job at detoxifying the skin and opening up the pores by exfoliating and allowing addition of products later on to penetrate better. 💥 My skin feels super purified after using it, and I usually use it when I see some breakouts coming along and decreases them ten-fold. 💥🖤 The great thing is that you don’t need much to have an effect, especially if you’re only using it on your forehead, nose, chin. At times, I spot treat with this mask and reduces my blemish/acne a lot to even nothing the next day. 🖤💯

Everything you Need to Know About the Caudalie Instant Detox Mask
Skin pollution is one of the most common skin problems that regular people like you or me deal with. This is because of the overuse of skincare, smoking, drinking, or other environmental factors, like the food and drinks we consume. The CAUDALIE - Instant Detox Mask is a clay mask that claims to detox the skin of pollution. Here’s what you need to know about the brand and the product. Caudalie is a France-based skincare company that focuses its products on the antioxidant properties of grapeseed. Grapeseed is known to have the highest antioxidant properties in the world, so their entire skincare line is based on removing impurities from the skin with grapeseed and clay, which is where we talk about this specific mask. The Caudalie Instant Detox Mask is a deep cleansing clay mask that visibly shrinks pores that have been damaged, whether from other skincare products (walnut bits, for example, which causes microtears) or acne. It claims to remove impurities and excess sebum, which is a common culprit for blackheads and other oil-based acne like many of us deal with. It is recommended to use two times a week for 5-10 minutes at a time as a layer on the face for purely detoxed skin. The texture is smooth and creamy, like hummus, and the smell is very mild and almost unnoticeable; it’s very earthy due to the clay. The price is a little bit on the steep side for the amount that you get at $39, but the reviews on Sephora.com and the brand’s website are phenomenal at 4.5 stars. On top of that, the product is vegan and GMO-free! Now, let’s take a look at the ingredients. Some of the most important ingredients include kaolin clay, bentonite, and Vitis Vinifera (grape) fruit extract. ● Kaolin clay has been used in skincare products for centuries. Kaolin clay is typically used on people who struggle with controlling oiliness and acne as the clay sucks up excess oil and pulls out any extra toxins. Additionally, removing the clay works as a gentle exfoliator. ● Bentonite clay is a natural additive to many skin care systems as it helps the product become more water-resistant and helps the product adhere to the skin for easy absorption. Like kaolin clay, bentonite clay pulls out excess oiliness and is used by acne-prone people who have acne caused by an abnormal amount of sebum production. ● Lastly, the Vitis Vinifera (grape) fruit extract. This specific grape is known to have antioxidant, antibacterial, anti-allergenic, anti-inflammatory, and wound healing properties. This is the key ingredient to the product; the extract does a fantastic job of pulling out toxins and treating acne and hyperpigmentation, as well as preventing future breakouts by detoxing the compromised skin. Overall, even if you have dry skin, this clay mask is probably a good fit for you. Although kaolin clay is known to have drying properties when paired with the bentonite clay, it should not be drying at all. If you eat a lot of meat, drink/eat a lot of dairies, eat junk/fast food, or overall live a little bit on the less healthy side, skin pollution is probably a very real problem for you. This mask will help you keep your lifestyle while also keeping your skin healthy.
