Facial mask is one of the most common forms of facial care used by almost everyone. Many forms and benefits tailored to the needs of our face. This time I’d like to share to all of you guys my experience about face mask. I have a dry combination skin and its really sensitive if I dont treat it well. I can easily get break outs if Im so stress out , if I do a lot of outdoor activities or I forgot to wash my face 2 times , bad eating habits and so on. To taking care of my face I use the treatment from a dermatologist , yes I know its a bit contradictive but the thing is I'm the type of person who really likes the treatment of a dermatologist. I already tried many many face products like sun cream, night cream ,face oil, lots of treatments from many brand either the local ones or the international brands you name it.
Sadly none of the products went well with my skin , either it make my skin so dry and patchy or make my break outs even worse. So instead looking for another face products I go to the dermatologist and yes it works really well to me. I’ve been using products from my dermatologist for the past 4 year until now. But using the dermatologist does’nt mean I dont’ use other products from other skincare brands . I also use face mask and acne medication from various brand but thats it .
As you know I have mention my experience with horrible break outs and how I deal with it. ( check out on My latest beauty favourites ) one of the best remedies that cure my breakouts is the glamglow supermud mask the white one. It get rid all of the acne on my face really well both big pimples , small pimples that looks like petrified on the face and the best part is glamglow greatly improve the quality of my facial skin and provide the final result with super glowing skin finish. But the problem is Glamglow is a luxury items for mask, like hell yeah for sure. I bought it at Sephora on 999K rupiah for 50 gr , comes with the mini soap and the mini glamglow face mask & scrub the orange ones.
Well 50 gr for myself as a person who really likes to wear mask is enough but not too quite hahaha if you know what i mean, I managed to spend 50 grams glamglow for 4 months with a fairly frequent use. and when my glamglow ran out of stock I think for repurchase, but thanks to my curiosity I watch so many review of face mask from various beauty vloggers on youtube , a long short story I found one mask that really interest me to try and it is the Aztec Secret Indian Healing mask. What they says on the mask :
100% Natural Calcium Bentonie (Green) Clay
AZTEC SECRET INDIAN HEALING CLAY

Mix healing clay with equal parts of raw apple cider vinegar and/or water. Best to use a non-metal bowl and utensil. Stir the mixture well, until it is a smooth paste. Add more clay or liquid as needed. Apply 1/4 to 1/2 inch layer to the face or other area. Let it dry for 5-10 min. for delicate skin and 15-20 min. for normal skin. You will feel a pulling and tightening sensation.

Remove clay by washing with warm water. Slight redness of the skin is normal and will disappear in about 30 min.

This mask comes with a various size , for me I buy the 454g ones I know its a really big size but trust me there is a bigger one than this and since I love mask so much its a perfect size for me . If you guys wanna try it first you can but the sharing size there are so many online shops on Instagram , shopee and etc but only buy from the trusted ones! Okay so I use this mask for one tea spoon well its kinda enough for my face then how I use it :
I mixed it up with 1-2 tea spoon of apple vinegar or the bear brand milk depends on what for. As you all know apple vinegar is really good natural to cure acne , blackheads, huge pores and you can also use it as your toner before using your night remedies. If you looking for the glowy and dewy effect you can mix it up with bbear brand milk , it also smooth out your skin nicely .
You can mix apple vinegar or the bear brand milk as much as you need to get the texture you want.
REMEMBER!!! Do not mix the masks with tools that made of stainless steel or metal, because bentonie itself is very sensitive to metal materials, so if touched with metal materials will eliminate the efficacy of bentonie.
Apply it all over your face and leave it out for 10- 20 minutes then rinse it all with warm water.
So how about the results?
My first impression when I use this mask was my face become so so red , well the instructtions already say it all on the packaging. But the best thing I found on my skin afterwards was that my pores boecome very small and so tight I can feel it when I put the mask on my face it really stings and tighten up my face , as I doing some research that this sting effect appears because the ingredients that exist in the mask itself is cleaning the dirt on our face that previously did not manage to lift . After 30 minutes I took of the mask ,the redness on my skin were already gone and a few big pimples yag still inflamed look more deflated than ever.
I have using this mask as my routine skincare for 3weeks and I’m really happy with the results my skin is not easy to appear acne,the acne scars that had caused black spots began disguise looking forward to get a better and better results for this mask!
What I don’t like about this mask?
Simply the smell ugh!!! It smells so bad like a smelly feet haha , I swear but this only happen if you use the apple vinegar, I really hate it but I still managed to keep using this mask despite the smell I really love it!
