Aztec Secret – Indian Healing Clay Mask

If you love face masks like I do, whether they be sheet masks, peel-off masks, clay masks, or any of the other dozens of mask options out there, this may be one you would like to add to your collection.

It is tingly, pulsating and deep cleaning. It removes impurities and debris from the skin and pores. You will notice some pinkness/redness after using, but it fades pretty fast. This is definitely a mask I would opt to use in the evenings because it is fairly intense and really does a great job pulling out all the dirt from your pores.

To use as a mask, the clay can either be mixed with apple cider vinegar or water, in equal parts.

According to the Aztec Secret website this miraculous clay works in the following way: The molecules of the clay carry a negative electron charge, and toxins that are stored in your skin (or epidermis) are positively charged. Because of this polarity, the toxins and dirt are pulled from the skin when the clay is applied. Now this may sound like rocket science or a scenario you may see on a chemistry exam, however the facts are the facts, and this stuff does what it claims.

The Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay also has a variety of applications. It can be used for clay baths, acne, insect bites, foot soaks, bodywraps, as well as facials.

I have only used it as a mask so far, but based on that, I am very curious to try out the other applications as well.

The Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay is available on the Aztec Secret website, Amazon, and the Vitamin Shoppe for approximately $8-9.

What you get is a one pound jar of clay, which roughly translates to approximately 25-30 masks that are 100% natural, fragrance free, and free of any animal testing.

Try it for yourselves and let me know what you think!

Thanks for reading! 🙂

Muddy Body Clay Masks

If you are in the market to try a new face mask, this is the one to try! Muddy Body Clay masks are nothing short of AMAZING! 

I recently purchased the Detox Mask, and Wow! This mask made my skin feel so soft and clean. I try a lot of face masks and never before have I noticed such an immediate result. My face felt so clean and refreshed that I didn’t even want to put makeup on after using it.. And I love doing my makeup! 

The clay masks come in three different versions: Detox, Refresh, and Relax. 

The Detox mask has ingredients of activated charcoal, coconut, and cacao; with noted key benefits of drawing out toxins and bacteria, and the promotion/repair of healthy skin cells.

The Refresh mask has ingredients of cucumber, matcha, and aloe vera. Key benefits include acne prevention, and skin moisturization and nourishment.

The Relax mask has ingredients of rosehip, chamomile, and lavender. Key benefits include the restoration of skin tone and texture; and prevention of fine lines and wrinkles.

Thus far, I have only tried the Detox version, but based on the results I have experienced, I will definitely be trying out the other two versions of their product.

For the price tag of $23.99 for a 2 ounce jar, the Muddy Body Clay Masks are a great value. I really like that it comes in a powder form because I try a lot of different products and this enables me to mix what I’m going to use with each application, which in turn allows for me to use the product with out it going bad or drying out like other masks I have purchased in the past.

There is a bit of a learning curve on how to get the water-to-clay mixture just right, as the directions are a little arbitrary. But it is easy to figure out by your second or third mask, so you aren’t wasting any product.

Sheet Masks

Where have these been all my life? Seriously, where?! I (like most girls, I think) view skincare as a necessity. However, it’s one of those things that you just “have to” do. I can’t tell you how many masks, creams, moisturizers, etc. I have in my cupboard.. But there’s A LOT. I try with the best of my ability to use them all, but let’s face it (no pun intended) no one has time for all of that.

So I’ve begun investing in sheet masks. All I can say is that these are debatably just shy of the eighth wonder of the world, or maybe the best thing since Velcro or sliced bread.

I’ve tried several versions of the sheet mask, ranging in price from approximately $1-$7. There are sheets masks that I’ve seen that are in a higher price bracket as well, but I have not tried those out as of yet. Based on the sheet masks that I have tried, it does seem like you get what you pay for. The $6-$7 range masks are on softer towelettes and they really seem to have a lasting moisturizing effect on your skin. Also they just seem to fit the face a bit better than their inexpensive counterparts.

I still purchase the cheaper sheet masks on occasion just to save a few dollars, but in a perfect world where money grew on trees, (yes, please!) I’d be buying the better quality ones all the time.
