You might remember seeing me mention here that I've been wanting to try this face mask for a while. I've had the ingredients but haven't been daring enough to give it a whirl.
I took the plunge this week and am excited to share the experience! This website shares many different ways to mix the clay with other ingredients to find the specific kind of face mask you're looking for. I just wanted a simple and relaxing clay mask so I mixed 2 TB of clay with 1 TB distilled water and 1 TB raw apple cider vinegar. Seeing the vinegar make the mixture sizzle a little made me a little nervous...but then the mixture became a thick paste and I was much less concerned!
The directions said to lather it on pretty thick so I wasn't shy.
Now sit and wait for 10-15 minutes or until dry. Pray that no one rings your doorbell in said 15 minutes...unless it's Halloween trick or treaters and you can claim this is your costume.
All in all I really DID like the mask and will definitely be trying it again. I took the advice of some of the reviews I read and took off the mask over the kitchen sink after plugging the drain. If you're not careful the clay can easily stop up your sink or bathtub. I took off as much of the mask as I could and then gathered the remnants and threw them away in the trash can.
This mask left my face feeling smooth, my complexion clear and even and my skin felt a little tighter all over. I think this mask has numerous other benefits -- reducing blackheads, acne and large pores. Next time I plan on keeping it on a little longer to if the results are any different and also using less portions of the ingredients. 1 TB of clay combined with 1/2 TB water and apple cider vinegar would be plenty.
