elf Mattifying Mask with French Green Clay

I did a couple of reviews on the elf Mattifying Mask with French Green Clay. I decided to use this face mask (to use it all up). I haven’t touched it in a while. This was my experience with it.

I’ve been using this face mask out of convenience. I don’t have to mix it like my Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay. That was a really bad idea. I didn’t think this face mask would break me out, but it did. I started to noticing clogged pores in the most random places. I even developed pustules. So, this mask is a no-go if you have acne-prone skin. I’m so disappointed. My skin was clear. But, at least I know what caused my skin to break out. I hope recovery is going to be fast and quick. Out this face mask goes!

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.

  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

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. 🙂 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. 🙂
