Here’s an update on Cos De BAHA Serums. I decided to drop some serums out of my skin care routine.

The first two are…

The tried adding these serums into my skin care routine the week before. It didn’t work out. I ended up with fresh, new pimples out of the blue. I’m not feeling it. I don’t know if it’s an initial breakout or if my skin just broke out just because. I don’t want to deal with new breakouts when my skin is 100% clear. It’s not something I want to see right now or ever again. Something deep down inside of me is telling me that these two serums are not compatible with my skin type. It’s time to let them go. I don’t see myself reaching for them again in the near future.

The other skin serum is…

I’m almost out of this serum. I thought, I will not purchase it again. It’s because my other serums contain the ingredient Niacinamide too. I don’t know the concentration of the Niacinamide, but I haven’t noticed big changes in my skin with the Niacinamide 10 Serum alone, so I decided not to keep it in my skin care routine once I’m done with it. We will see if my skin will become dull or not without it…

Review: Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay

Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay

Here’s my review on Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay! I’ve been meaning to do a full review on this face mask for the longest time! So this is a bentonite clay mask. It’s very beneficial for acne, oily skin. I usually lean towards clay masks, since I have acne, oily skin. For the past months, I’ve been experimenting with different types of masks. Obviously, the ones that are meant for oily skin works the best for me. lol.

About this face mask…

Other statements on the container…

How to use?

  1. Mix clay with equal parts of raw apple cider vinegar and/or water
  2. Use a non-metal bowl and utensil
  3. Stir the mixture well to a smooth paste
  4. Add more clay or liquid as needed
  5. Apply 1/8 to 1/4 in. to the face or other area
  6. Let it dry for 5-10 min. for delicate skin, 15-20 min. for normal skin
  7. Remove clay by washing with warm water
  8. Slight redness of the skin is normal and will disappear in about 30 min.
  9. Removes impurities and dirt from the pores

This is what it looks like. Open container.

Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Powder
Green clay powder

The instructions states that the green powder can be mixed with raw apple cider vinegar. I haven’t tried it yet. I might in the near future. I’ve been mixing it with water. It works. šŸ™‚ I mentioned in my last short review that this face mask was beneficial for my oily skin and acne. It is. My skin looks and feels less oily after using it. It helped dry up active pimples. It makes my skin feel nice afterwards every time I use it. It doesn’t dry my skin out at all. That’s quite a shocker because it removes excess oil and makes my skin feel tighter. It kind of reminds me of Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask — back in the days when it was very popular! Maybe it’s because they are both green. As for results, Aztec is way better than Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask. I never liked the minty smell of Queen Helene. I didn’t notice too much of a difference in my skin when using Queen Helene either, while with Aztec I do. There’s only ONE ingredient in Aztec. It is 100% Natural Calcium Bentonite (Green Clay). Queen Helene had a bunch of other ingredients besides bentonite from what I remember. There is a downside when it comes to using Aztec. Whenever I remove the mask off of my face, it doesn’t wash down the basin easily. It sticks to the side of the basin and floats around in chunks. BUT, that hasn’t stopped me from using this face mask. That’s just a heads up if you decide to try it out yourself. Overall, I enjoy it. My skin likes it. I use it 2 times a week after a facial steam. šŸ™‚
