I'm always one to try new things in skincare. I tend to have constant break outs and hormonal blemishes. I don't remember a time when my skin was perfectly clear. I heard about this on Reddit and I didn't think to much about it until I saw it pretty cheap on Amazon. The recommended way to use this is to mix equal parts of the clay powder and apple cider vinegar. When you put it on, it'S normal to feel your skin pulsate and to feel a heat like sensation. It's like any normal mask and you'll feel a bit of tightening and it will be difficult to move your face. Stick with it. It can be difficult to wash off once it's dry, but just take a wet washcloth, hold it on your face for a few seconds and then rub it off. If you have skin like mine, your face will be REALLY red for a bit. It will feel hot. But after everything settles down your face will be baby soft and smooth. The price isn't bad at all for how much you get. The packaging I got says it's good for 10 - 15 facials....I see it lasting me much longer. If you're on the fence about this, just go ahead and buy it.
I'm 18 weeks pregnant and I don't know if it's because of the pregnancy, winter, winter in Louisiana (I'm not from here originally) OR all of the above, but I have had terribly dry and itchy skin. Other moms out there recommended Bag Balm to me and I never gave it much thought. I happened to be at CVS when I saw a tin. It's a bit pricey.. I think I bought mine for around $10 for 10 oz. I soon found out that the price is nothing because a little goes a long way and it'll last quite a while. I wasn't sure how to use it because on the tin it only has directions for cow teats and pets. Sort of an odd thing to sell at CVS in the lotion section..or so I thought. I put some on the worst dry spots after a shower and within 20 minutes they didn't itch and they were moisturized. The product is greasy and doesn't immediately absorb very well so be sure to put it on under clothes you don't really care about. That's why I normally put it on before bed. The most use I get out of it is for my feet. I slather it on, put socks on and go to sleep. By morning I have soft and moisturized feet. I also (TMI) put it on my nipples because this pregnancy is causing me to have dry and itchy skin in the weirdest of places. As soon as I put it on...relief. I love this stuff so much I even went online and bought the 1 oz size just to keep in my purse. The only things I don't like about it is the smell and how hard it is to wash off of my hands. The smell is a bit medicinal, but not bad and it's not overwhelming. Since the product is so thick, it's a little difficult to wash off of hands. (I tend to wash it off because my hands are the only places I don't seem to have dry skin.) I've also heard it's good for diaper rash, chapped lips and for dogs who have dry skin who scratch so much their fur falls out. Seems like a balm for many many uses. I've been recommending this product to anyone who will listen. I plan on buying this for my girlfriends whenever they are expecting or friends/family members complaining of itchy skin.

I haven't been using Clinique for very long, but I'm already in love with this product. I usually put it on before bed and I wake up with ridiculously soft lips. I love thick glosses/balms so this stuff was perfect for me, but if you're not into the sticky feeling I would steer clear. It also comes in a small tube which is perfect for pockets or clutches.
