You can feel it working when it is on your skin. I also think using apple cider vinegar plays a huge part in why this product works so well." –Kimberly Ann, Amazon User

"I couldn't believe how great my skin felt! I could tell the 1st layer of dead, dull skin had been removed. My face was soft and smooth to the touch. My skin had a nice glow. The next day a few blackheads and zits appear but that's a good thing. This was acne that was trapped below the surface. Now that it had surfaced, I was able to treat it on a topical level." –Brandice, Amazon User

“They are all very hydrating and leave my skin feeling soft and smooth. I use these masks around 1-2 times a week, and I feel that they are worth the price. You also get a lot for your money! Overall, these are wonderful masks that I would definitely recommend and repurchase. –Tea, Amazon User
Majestic Pure Indian Healing Clay, $11
Bentonite clay is known for many things but it’s most notable attribute is it's healing powers. Made from volcanic ash in Wyoming, this mask pulls toxins from your skin nourishing it with calcium and silica which also helps those with oily skin. This clay is very powerful! If you have sensitive skin make sure to only use the mask according to the exact time they tell you. As a warning, if you don't regularly exfoliate or use detoxifying masks, it may cause you to break out after using since it pulls toxins that are deep in your skin to the surface.
“I just bought this product with the apple cider vinegar and I have only used this twice in the past week and my face has done a complete 180. The first time I kept the clay on for the recommended 20 mins and was so amazed at how you can actually see the dirt being sucked out of your pores.” –Mary, Amazon User
