Amazing New Find - Under $10!!!

I came across this article on Pinterest last month, and since I've always been into natural beauty products and with the title of the online article being "The Best Beauty Products You've Probably Never Heard Of" I was sold.  Immediately, I analyzed every single product mentioned in the article but what was most intriguing was the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay and how the Huffington Post simply described it as "Best. Mask. Ever".  Sold again.

I did a bit of research on the mask.  The clay, according to Aztec Secrets website is "betonite clay from Death Valley, CA, where it is sun-dried for up to six months in temperatures that sometimes reach 134 degrees."  They also discuss the molecular science behind the clay.  It contains a negative electron charge and since "poisons and toxins stored in the epidermis have a positive charge - Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay lifts the pimple and blackheads into the clay bed to cause accelerated healing and nourishment to the skin with over 50 minerals.  100% Natural."
Its sold in the beauty aisle at Whole Foods (but you can also purchase online on amazon) and since I was headed to the grocery store that afternoon, I added it to my list of things to pick up.  I found it next to the natural makeup section and was shocked at the price.  $8.99?????!!!!!  Coming from a gal who's paid upwards of $200 for face masks this almost seemed too good to be true!

After using this mask twice, I can firmly state that this sh*t is the real deal.  This cheapie little miracle in a tub is nothing short of awesome!  Here's my thoughts:

  • I mixed the clay with apple cidar vinegar for an extra detoxifying boost (you kind of smell like a salad but who cares!)
  • You can really feel it "pulsating" as the label claims!
  • The mask gets suuuuuuper tight and firm, to the point where you can't smile or raise your eyebrows.
  • After washing off, my skin felt refreshed & squeaky clean.  It removed a few small blemishes that I had on my forehead and visibly evened out my skintone.
  • My face was visibly firmer throughout the day, and pores were much smaller. 
  • The post mask glow continued for the rest of the day.  Similar to the glow that you get after a really good facial!

Cheesy selfie!
