Absolutely love this clay!

Only gave it 4 hippies instead of 5 because I don't have a credit/debit card to buy it online since it is not available in Malaysia, I instead bought it from a dealer whom I found was ripping me off :(

However once I do get my bank statements straightened out, I'll deffo buy this in bulk online!

I have gone on accutane twice but found myself breaking out strictly on my forehead a few months after finishing my last dose. Otherwise, I only break out around my lip area once a month. I found out that my body is very sensitive to wheat and gluten (tests show I don't have Celiacs). Whenever I eat something with wheat, I start breaking out on my forehead within the next 24-48 hours. I have definitely removed gluten and wheat from my diet, but occasionally cave and eat pizza or something else every once in a while. Although allergy medication help reduce my other side effects (that are not dangerous or deadly), it does not prevent the breakouts on my forehead. This face mask is something I continue to use to help this acne and am almost done with my first tub of the mask.

Whenever I eat wheat, I use this facemask STRICTLY on my forehead area several nights in a row. It helps calm all the inflammation on my forehead, making me breakout less and allow the ones that do pop up to heal very quickly.

I try not to review something the day after I get it, so I have used the entire tub and am now writing a review. Here are some things to be aware of when using it.

1. This specific mask will cause you to breakout if you have current pores that are clogged (so be aware when you begin using it).
2. Only use it twice a week on your whole face because it can cause sensitivity.
3. I have been able to use it more frequently when I use it on a small section of my face (like just my forehead).
4. Use it twice a week, and CONTINUE to use it every week. I found that if I don't use it twice a week and use it inconsistently, I go through the initial breakout period every single time. If you keep up with it, you will not have to worry about getting clogged pores that will turn into acne after using this product.
5. If you have a bath tub, was your face in the lower water spout (if you are not showering after using this product). It helps your sink drain from clogging.
6. Only use plastic or glass materials, as metal can cause a reaction with the clay while you are mixing. I prefer plastic, because the clay makes an awful noise in glass while you are stirring it.

Hope this review helps!

After seeing all the rave reviews online I decided that it might be worth to spend a little extra to ship this into Canada. I'm usually extremely skeptical about products people claim to be their "holy grail" cause most of the time they haven't done much for me. However after using this for the first time last night - all I can say is wow. I had a few red, inflamed pimples before applying this, and a cystic like zit on my chin. I also have a few dark spots after older pimples. Waking up this morning, all of it has faded. The spots aren't completely gone but are definitely lighter, pimples aren't red anymore and dramatically shrunk in size, and the cystic pimple is almost already at the surface (usually takes 2 weeks). Blackheads and deep, skin coloured bumps I always struggle with - also dried up and and shrunk in size. Although my face does feel a bit itchy/irritated this morning (it REALLY tightens your skin), I think it's completely worth it considering how great it made my complexion look. Another note - I recently purchased the GlamGlow mask and that has done absolutely nothing for my face. Save the time and money and buy this inexpensive but extremely effective gem :) Also - MOISTURIZE. I used my HG moisturizer CeRave and it's really helped out to make sure my skin wasn't too dry after the mask. Don't waste anymore time reading reviews and researching, buy it now!!!

My routine- I mixed the clay with apple cider vinegar, left it on for 10-15 minutes, and took it off in the shower. I then used a Biore pore strip.

You donít have to spend a gazillion dollars at the local spa. This product is amazing but always sold out at iHerb!

You're gonna need a spoon to hoist the powder out of the container. DON'T try to dump it out or it'll fly everywhere!

This mask is really great! I tried it for the first time yesterday after reading tons of reviews. My skin looks significantly more even, smooth and a bit less red today; not to mention my makeup went on smoother! I definitely think I need to make masks a daily (or every other day) ritual now. The winter months have definitely been making my skin beg for some TLC. I think clay masks can sometimes act as well, which is great for those winter flakes your skin never seems to produce enough of.

I mixed mine with a bit of raw honey, ACV, water and cinnamon & left it on my face for about 30-40 min, then I just let the water pressure in the shower and a bit of rubbing wash it away. Mm-m goodness for the skin! The crystallized honey exfoliated the surface cells, and my skin just feels so much nicer today. Definitely drying though so be sure to double up on moisturizing after!

...So why the 4 stars?

I have decided to only award 5 stars to a) products that blow me out of the water upon first use & b) products that stand the test of time. We'll see how well this baby does when I use it more often. For now, definitely a solid A!

Skin type: oily, acne prone - had chronic acne and blackheads for 12 years until i became strict with diet and adalpalene, bha, ahas & bp every day, pores will seemingly be blocked by 90+% of products instantly, highly reactive to fragrance, alcohol and clogging ingredients.

I LOVE this stuff. Natural, cheap, and feels like youre in a spa when you wear it. You get a TON. don't bother with glamglow overpriced crap - this is amazing. I use it mixed with water more than ACV, but both are fine with my skin. I find I don't even need to use this because my acne and blackheads are all gone, but its a treat to use and I'm glad I have it to hand. I use it for 'home spa' nights in with the girls :)

I bought this due to the incredible reviews, and because I love mud masks. I used this mask and ended up with cystic pimples, and whiteheads all over my face. I couldn't believe it. It took me weeks to get rid of them and I'm still trying to heal the marks. I've been using the rest of the clay as a body mask, since I am never letting this stuff touch my face ever again.

I promise you I have never found a mask in my life that has been able to dig out/clean out my pores. THIS MASK IS AMAZING!!!!! I have struggled with acne since I was 13 and this mask was actually able to go deep enough to clear out my clogged pores. This mask leaves my face feeling so clean! its amazing and a great price! feels good using something natural as well! I read some other reviews and people were saying its a pain to remove.. It is not a pain to remove! its easy! (wet your face first and then wipe it off) I also read reviews that said its messy.... yeah but choose your battles! I mix it with water only. I don't use apple cinnamon vinegar because my skin is sensitive but I'm loving the results with just having used water to mix it!!!!!! buy it!
