I am not talking about,
I meant clay as in clay mask.
Clay mask in general is an awesome product, basically what it does is: the mask goes inside our pores where all the nasty gunk & dirt hides, once it's dried, it pulls away the impurities and dead skin cells away from your skin, so when you wash it off, those bad stuffs & dead skin also being taken off of your skin.
Glacial Clay is also full of protein & nutrients for skins which is great for rejuvenation (lighten up discoloration of my acne marks). I have been using this mask after I ditched my Queen Helene Mint Julep mask, it contains fragrance and I just didn't feel comfortable slathering fragrance on my acne-prone skin.
Another thing I like about it is it's pretty hydrating so even after I wash it off, my face doesn't feel tight. I noticed Mint Julep mask does dry up my skin a little bit.
I purchased mine at Garden of Wisdom, and they're pretty damn cheap. My glacial clay costs $4.75 for 2 oz in powder form. So what I do is mixing the powder with liquid in small dish until I meet my desirable consistency.
The liquid that I use is Spring Water, which is quite basic. Some people use Hydrosols, Aloe Vera Juice, Aloe Vera Gel, Yogurt, and sometimes mix other stuffs inside with Honey, Manuka Honey, or Seamollients.
How much liquid, you may ask? well it's all up to you, I like mine to be lotion-like consistency, not as thick as toothpaste (found it hard to smear around) or too watery. I leave my mask for 30 minutes before I rinse off to give it time to barging into my pores & do the job. I use mine 1x a week (every Sunday) but you can double the dose to 2x a week if you like.
Some other great clays worth trying are: Blue Clay, Dead Sea Clay, French Green Clay, Kaolin Clay, and Red Kaolin Clay (all from Garden of Wisdom)
GoW also offers a Clay Sampler, basically a 12 ounces of various clays for $20.05
