I was getting ready to write this post and realized I haven’t done a WILW (What I’m Loving Wednesday) post in forever!! Sorry about that!! If you are new here I usually post what products I am loving at the moment on Wednesdays, mostly beauty products but sometimes household stuff too, just whatever!
Today’s WILW is an “Aztec Secret”, Indian Healing Clay. I had never heard of this product until recently but apparently is been around for a long time. I am big advocate of proper skincare because let’s face it, you only have one face for your entire life and you need to take care of it!! That sounds a little weird but you get the point.
I read in an article online recently that said that you really need to get a facial at least once a week to really exfoliate your skin properly but let’s be real here…who has the time and the funds to do that? Not me.
I think at home masks work just as well if you get one that is right for your face. I have tried several and was always left feeling like it was missing something. My face would feel greasy after, or too dry, or just blah. And then I tried the Indian Healing Clay. It was magical. Or something like that…LOL!
It comes in a powder form…
…and you can mix it with water or apple cider vinegar and from the reviews I read online it mixes easiest with the vinegar so I did it that way. I forgot to take a pic because I was too excited to get it on my face! HA!
Also you can’t mix it with metal so I used a glass bowl and plastic spoon.
SO you mix this bad boy up and leave it on your face for 5-10 minutes for sensitive skin or 15-20 minutes for normal skin. The back of the jar says “Feel your face PULSATE” but I never felt any pulsating and I left it on for about 20 minutes.
This mask is supposed to be good at removing impurities and dirt from your pores, helping with acne, as a clay bath or foot soak, and for insect bites. Personally I loved how my skin felt after. It felt tight and clean. it didn’t leave me feeling oily at all and it wasn’t drying either.
I washed mine off in the shower because I heard it was really messy to get off and I did have to scrub pretty hard to get it off. When I was down with my shower, I patted my face dry and put on some super thick, heavy moisturizer (that I had a free sample of) and went about my day as normal. I think on a “normal day” I would use this before bed so the moisturizer can soak in really good. Since I wasn’t going anywhere the day I tried this I was fine.
Overall I really liked this mask. I love the price and the fact that you get so much!! It is definitely a keeper in my book!!
I’m not getting any compensation at all to post this and I did include a few links in this post and I am not getting any compensation for those either, I just really love this stuff!!
Have you ever tried Indian Healing Clay??
