MY TAKE ON AZTEC SECRET INDIAN HEALING CLAY
Packaging: The product comes in a simple plastic tub with screw lid. I wish the opening was narrow or the packaging was a bit better with extra secure lid inside to avoid spilling the powder everywhere.
Texture: The powder is extremely fine and forms a smooth paste instantly when mixed with apple cider vinegar. I feel it gets lumpy and tough to make a smooth paste when mixed with water.
How I use and after-effects: Ideally, you are supposed to mix this with apple cider vinegar but water works too. I like to mix it with apple cider vinegar because it forms a spreadable paste that way and also adds on to the skin benefits. When you add in apple cider vinegar, you will see some effervescence which will subside as you mix it. Apply on cleansed skin (avoiding area around the eyes) and let it sit for 10 minutes. Wash off with plain water and follow with a good quality moisturizer. Use once a week.
This clay is the best one in the market right now and is 100% pure. The clay does tingle the initial few minutes but you should feel comfortable once you regularly use it. As it dries, you feel skin tightening; wash it off with plain water. Skin does get a bit red but that is normal and the redness should go away after about 30 minutes. Skin does feel a bit dry after using this so I always follow up with a moisturizing skin balm (this one).
What changes did I see after using this for almost 2 months? Let us first talk about how my skin felt after using this the first few times- skin felt inflamed the first time I used it but went back to normal after 30 minutes. Skin felt tighter and thoroughly cleansed. After few weeks of regularly using this, I feel my pores remain unclogged (you know those tiny white bumps that appear near the mouth and nose? they are as a result of clogged pores and I do not get them anymore!) and skin looks refined and smoother. The mask also keeps my skin acne-free and softer. Reduced oiliness and keeps skin matte and fresh. The product is great especially if you have problematic skin. I will always have this in my cupboard and use regularly, I give this a big thumbs up!
