  • Instant freshness can be felt.
  • Face looks brighter and cleaner after first usage itself.
  • Mild neutral fragrance. It does not irritate during application.

  • No animal testing or animal products in it. 100% cruelty free.

CONS:

  • Lumps are for med while making a paste. These do not make application easy.
  • Clogs the drain when washed under a tap. But yo, it’s clay!
  • Did not help with my blackheads. But it’s not exactly a part of the claim.
  • Dries-up face. So careful if you have dry skin.
  • It’s quite expensive, atleast in India.
  • Availability is an issue too. It is available only on Amazon.

Rating: 3.8/5.

Suggestions:

  • I would consider using it with milk if you have dry skin. I haven’t tried it yet. The clay tends to dry up your face.
  • Use an open tap or an open area where you don’t have to worry about clogging drains.

Usage instructions:

  • Mix clay with water or apple cider vinegar to make thick paste
  • Use a non-metal dish to make the paste. Metal deactivates its healing properties.
  • Apply paste on face till dry
  • Wash with warm water.
  • Apply once a week.

MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE

Been using it for a month now. Considering the amount of product for the price, it’s not so bad. Plus it’s natural. Plus it does cleanse and give a glow. As far as acne is concerned, I cannot determine the effect cos I don’t have any. (Knock some wood y’all) The quantity seems to be sufficient given a weekly-application. But I am no skin wizard. I need more time to say if it really went deep enough to cleanse my skin.

So, ¬†what are y’all waiting for ? Get messy and dive into clear skin world. Just kidding. Consistency is key.
