So you’ve probably seen this white jar of powdery clay in someone’s bathroom, or on instagram or on a list of 10 beauty products and wondered to yourself about it cause they whole thing cost $10.
Can something that cheap be good….I asked the same question so I decided to find out for myself!
So I ordered the clay mask off Amazon and it arrived promptly within 2 days (thanks amazon prime). The tub was in a plastic baggie that was a little foggy but other than that no complaints.
I read the instructions that said to add equal parts water and apple cider vinegar to the clay. Honestly I eye-balled the amounts, but I wanna say I did 1/3 cup water to 1/3 cup ACV, and a good dump of the clay….estimating around 3 TSBPs.
The next step is very important, YOU MUST MIX the mixture well. I used a spoon to get out all the clumps. At this point, I did notice that the mix was a little too watery so I added a bit more clay.
I obviously made way to much for just one usage so I actually store the clay mask in the plastic container pictured to the right. I have noticed no difference in the mixture in the three weeks that it has been in the tupperware.
Now back to the mask. I had a face full of makeup on so I took it off with a makeup wipe and cleaned my face with some facial wash. I did not dry my face, as the mask is to be put on with a wet face.
I layered on the mask with my fingers and evenly coated it on my face. Let’s be real here for a minute…the mask is probably the ugliest color you have ever seen and when you’re putting green puke goop on your face for the first time, its kinda weird. For the first 5 minutes or so, you don’t really notice anything. There is no pulsating or tingling…at least in my experience. But once you are about 7 minutes in, you start to feel a tightening around your face and it’s getting harder to move your face. I like to think of this time as when my face is going through an extra strength power wash. It’s not uncomfortable but it’s also definitely not relaxing. You will also notice that the mask is starting to change colors.
Once your face turns less puke green and more mint green, it’s time to wash it off. This should be around minute 15…I personally like to wait to until my entire face is that same shade of mint green. I washed off the mask with water…it did take some scrubbing but nothing too intense. After I took off the mask, my face was a nice shade of cherry red. This is absolutely normal! The redness wears off after about 20 minutes.
Overall results though are that my face automatically felt smoother. This could be my mind playing tricks on me but after consistent use for the three weeks (being 1x/2x a week) I also began to notice that the chin comodone that has been residing on my face began to soften. This could have been my imagination but I was actually able to pop some of it recently!
HONEST REVIEW: I would absolutely recommend purchasing the clay mask! It’s honestly a cheap buy that will keep on giving! For $10 bucks you can easily have a 100 masks! No joke! I think it would also be a fun gift to give as well because again who would think something that comes in a powdery clay would actually be a great product! So since it’s the holiday season, this white tub of magic would actually be a great budget friendly stocking stuffer, secret santa or yankee swap gift! And it really does leave your face feeling fantastic!
