Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Deep Pore Cleansing, 1 Pound (Misc.)
Let me tell you...if you ever want to know what it's like to have a black hole on your face then all you have to do is get this product. If you mix it just right not only will you feel pulsating and tightening, you will feel as if your face has moved( such as your lips puckering) but it really hasn't. It's pretty amazing. I leave it on for as long as I want or can take. It doesn't burn me or anything(though it did burn one of my friends with bad acne, but I think that was a good sign.) It just kind of sets me in stone. I make sure that when I mix it with Bragg's Organic Apple Cider that the texture is silky and whipped. No clumps! I have seen that some use water but meh...I say go by the actual directions.
I think one of the misconceptions about a product like this is that your face becomes smooth when you scrub it off. This stuff is extremely hard to get off like that. I recommend taking a rag and soaking it with warm water and dabbing it generously on the clay so that it softens somewhat. THEN scrub/wipe it off.
I only do this once a week because my skin is pretty normal and do not want to dry it out. So far the best benefit this clay has given is it's blackhead loosening. I always put a nose strip on right after I wash this off. When I pull that thing off I get almost all the blackheads on my nose. It makes me very happy. Now I know some people have T-Zone blackheads so I am sure you could also use strips on your chin and forehead.
This product is relatively inexpensive and the apple cider is too. It's worth a try.

I see I'm not the only one laughing & commending the black hole comment - hilarious! :)
On a serious note, thank you for taking the time to leave an informative review.

I've seen this clay in a health food store a few times and wondered what the heck it was and what it was used for. I never bothered to ask. I came across it here on Amazon by accident and WOW all the great reviews. I had to comment on yours because the black hole bit got me tickled. So I'll be buying some the next time I'm at the health food store and imagine I'm floating off into space to be sucked in by the black abyss! :)

Add some pink to that black hole abyss. Try cranberry juice instead of the apple cider/juice. Cranberry is good for yeast and fungi and other bacterias too. So go a little pink and experiment. Also for a great way to not have to worry about juice going bad or buying too bit a bottle and then what drink it? And I'm not one that likes apple juice or cider. BUY IT in the 100% frozen concentrates and then just pull out a bit of concentrate enough to mix with water purified or tap and walla your cider or juice mask is ready.....even could be a chilling experience in summer fresh from the freezer. Some of the frozen juices come in little cans plastic and otherwise that don't do well as a container others come in little bottles or jars that are wide mouth and allow you to scoop out just enough of it as you need. I have saved a couple of those jars and buy the juices on sale and transfer them thawed to the jars so a small freezer safe jar would do too. Even the ball straight side freezer safe glass jars would work. All in all think outside the box. And while sipping that cider and rum or cranberry gin fizz enjoy your face shifting into the black hole over the abyss. Apple or cranberry does wonders for the insides too.

That's extremely helpful advice @Lincoln County MT. I have a problem with my both oily, and extremely sensitive skin, producing excess yeast/fungi. (and now its spread to my face!!) So I will be giving this a try with the suggested organic cranberry concentrate to replace ACV (which I should mention lasts forever, by the way, considering it's so potent).
