BEAUTY: Aztec Indian Healing Clay

I’ve been like a kid with a new toy this past weekend!  ‘Playing’ with a new beauty product ….I purchased the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay.


So ok, I know, I know I’m LATE to this Bentonite clay party! Don’t judge me…

I have heard great things about this product all over the Internet-web so of course I wanted to give it go myself.
The mask comes packaged in its original powdery state, which whilst I ‘get’ it being that’s it’s a natural product….I had a momentary eye roll moment because I just wanted to get the stuff on my face without the extra faff of sourcing ‘equipment’ to mix up the concoction.

So with glass jar and plastic spoon at hand, a teaspoon of the clay powder I got to mixing this two different ways on two different occasions.

The clay powder mixed with Apple cyder vinegar:

Using the mask powder with Sainsburys Aspinalls cyder vinger, whilst I felt the mask did its job it dries almost at the same rate as your conventional pre mixed mask.  Drying time was about 15-20 mins.  The smell… Somewhat vinegary with a tinge of egg… a tad abnoctious, but doable.

The clay powder mixed with water:

Whoa! Completely difference in how my face felt and how the clay dries.  The mask gets to work instantly with drying and boy oh boy can you feel it!! It almost had for an itchy sensation for a moment.  I could feel it tightening those pores (mwah ha ha ha) which is never a bad thing.  Drying time was about 10 mins.  The smell …. Again that eggy whiff.

With the clay mask used both ways… It definetly lives up to the ‘feel your face pulsate’ claim.  It is the most strangest feeling ever, however more so intense when the clay is mixed with plain water.  I’d say if there’s a reason to buy this mask its for that party trick alone.

So did it make a difference? Yes! I’m pleased to say this is one mask I won’t be turning my back on in a hurry.  My skin feels baby soft after use and the next day is positively glowing.

There are many uses for Bentonite clay – it’s widely known for its healing properties and ability to remove toxins.  There are multiple uses for it, which I’m steadily reading up and learning about.

So lastly to conclude I’m sure you’ve guessed I love this mask, I picked mine up on Amazon for just under £10, however I’m sure it’s also available from most other good beauty web stores.

Have you tried Aztec secret Indian healing clay, if so how have you used it and what where your results?
