Magical Face mask, or just good marketing?
I had heard so much about this “Aztec Secret” clay mask. This mask is always rated among the top ten-most popular on Amazon’s beauty bestseller page. It has over 11,500 customer reviews, over 10,000 of which are 4- or 5-star glowing review, so I decided to test it out myself.
According to the company’s site, the product is made of bentonite clay sourced from Death Valley, California, where “it is sun-dried for up to six months in temperatures that sometimes reach 134 degrees.” Though it’s important to know what’s in the mask, it’s even more important to know what’s not: The mask has with no additives, fragrances, or animal products that may irritate sensitive skin.
This mask is 100% bentonite clay which is derived from volcanic ash which is said to absorb negatively charged toxins from the skin. It also helps to create a barrier between your skin and possible irritants.
The mask comes in a powder form and the instructions on the mask suggest to mixing it with apple cider vinegar or water. THE TUB ENCOURAGES YOU, IN ALL-CAPS RED PRINT, TO FEEL YOUR FACE PULSATE.
The very first time I used this mask I must say I was impressed. Even if it did nothing for my skin, just the feeling that it provides is invigorating. You literally feel your face PULSATE! The mask goes on kinda goopy but dries and hardens within 10-15 mins to the point where it hurts to move your face. I learned that the reason you feel your skin pulsating is because the mask helps to bring blood flow to the face which helps with healing and killing any toxins in the skin.
I also learned not to use any metal material when mixing or applying this mask (as explained in the instructions). The company claims the mask works because toxins in the skin hold a positive charge, while the clay holds a negative charge to help draw impurities out. Using any metals will disrupt the magnetic charge magic!
I have been using this mask for about a month and I can see why others are raving about it. After removing the mask, my face feels very smooth, and my pores are tightened. Any congested pores and acne is diminished. It is a great mask and for the prices…what more could a girl want!? A little bit goes a long way so one tub of this will last a long time, even more bang for your buck!
Definitely recommend this face mask! If you have tried it I’d love to know your opinion on it!
