Aztec Healing Clay Mask Review
Here's a review on Aztec Healing Clay Mask
Price: Around P300.00+
Bought From: Healthy Options, The Fort High Street
Other Locations: Available in all Healthy Options branches
I was supposed to grab Queen Helene's Clay Mask in Healthy Options, but got this instead. I'm pretty much familiar with the benefits of Aztec Clay, but didn't know we have it here. And 300 pesos only for a huge tub? That's a bargain!
I've used this before and I'm just going to recount my wonderful experience with it-I had to stop because it always takes time to prepare and use. I'm having bad skin days now and I vow to use this more often again because I've witnessed its efficacy! :D
AZTEC HEALING CLAY MASK IN DETAIL
Aztec Clay, which is abundant in South America, is said to be a VERY rich type of clay, packed with almost all of the nutrients found on Earth. Scientifically, it's known as Bentonite Clay and is treasured for its ability to get rid of toxins, parasite infections, free radicals, herbicides, parasites, pesticides, and pathogens. In fact, other people ingest Bentonite Clay as it is effective in Colon cleansing. It's good for acne- prone and oily skin, and even has medicinal uses such as healing of eczema, psoriasis, and soothing of aching muscles.
Aztec Healing Clay is 100% Pure Natural Calcium Bentonite Clay. It is in its natural form to help preserve its quality as well as its nutrients.

Texture of the clay is very smooth, and even feels like powdered milk. It is unscented.
HOW TO USE AZTEC CLAY MASK
Grab a bowl, measuring spoons, spatula, and a mask brush (optional). There are DIY face mask tools in sets sold in the market so I'd suggest you get that. Too Cool For School and Landmark are selling those.
Scoop out 1/2 cup of clay powder from the bowl or depending on the amount you need.
Mix equal parts of water with the powder. Apple Cider Vinegar is also a suggested dissolver.
Mix well until you form a smooth paste, which is pretty hard to do by the way-I always get clumps during mixing especially with cold water so I would suggest warm water for a smoother paste.
AZTEC HEALING CLAY IN ACTION
When you've finally created a paste, apply on skin and allow to sit for 10-15 minutes. For very deep cleansing, leave on for 30 minutes.
FEEL YOUR FACE PULSATE- this is the tagline of this product. No kidding, when the mask begins to harden, I could really feel that my skin is throbbing underneath and there are slight prickly, itchy sensations that last until you rinse it off. It's a lil' bothersome, but I tolerate it because it gives me this feeling that the mask is really sucking out all the impurities. As the mask dries up, you'll really feel that your face is being sealed with a rock- like layer, as in there's no room for facial movement-I guess this is how traditional face masks really perform. The super hard texture may feel a lil' irritating, but I like its relaxing effect.
This mask is a lil' tough to rinse off though, so use warm water and a gentle facial cleanser afterwards. It's a bit messy to use and the clay chunks are hard to dispose too. I've also noticed that parts of my face turned red after rinsing, but the redness was gone after 20 minutes.
- Skin feels and looks really clean
- Skin is matte and stays that way for hours
- Pimples start drying up after a few hours, or they become almost dry if you leave the mask on for a long time.
- Skin feels very smooth
AFTER ONE MONTH OF USAGE (USED TWICE A WEEK):
- Breakouts were reduced
- My skin looked smoother
- Skin felt and looked healthier
- Pimples heal faster because I feel that my skin has been strengthened
OTHER USES (AS INSTRUCTED BY THE PRODUCT): Ice pack for aching joints and muscles; Body Mask
TIP: You can use this as a spot clay mask and a natural spot treatment too. Dissolve a pinch or two of the powder in dollops of water, make a paste, dot on pimples and leave on for an hour, and then rinse off with water. After a few hours or one day, your pimples will dry up and the eye will fall out effortlessly.
WARNING: I've read reviews that there are people who experienced more breakouts with Bentonite Clay so if you have sensitive skin, use with caution.
I love this stuff! I've been using clay masks for a long time and I've never used something THIS effective. I'm excited to try it again tonight! To all acne- prone and oily- skinned people out there, this is the clay mask that you should try!
