Here's a tip for you acne sufferers or anyone who get a breakout or the occasional spot, benzoyl peroxide is nothing compared to the effects of clay.As a firm believer in not using benzoyl peroxide to treat my acne I learned through HighOnHealth.org (an amazing acne site) about the wondrous effects and powers of clay.Clay helps soothe those inflamed pimples which are the second worst (those pussy heads come first) because of all that embarrassing redness.
Clay is an excellent spot treatment and St.Ive's Mineral Clay Firming Masque is no difference.Upon using it for the first couple of weeks my skin felt firmer, softer and felt and looked more clean on a general daily basis.It's since been almost 7 months since first using it and now I use it almost every day as a pot treatment and once a week on my entire face.(Note: a spot treatment is when you apply something directly on a spot and not your whole face).
What this clay offers to acne sufferers is a relief from those embarrassing red spots that are overly obvious as well as a long term treatment for keeping spots away.Not to mention that the clay can and does work overnight so you will notice upon a couple of hours of application, a reduce in the redness but more importantly it can even reduce the pimple's size.Clay is also really good for cystic acne which is the worst kind of acne.
Final verdict:Buy ! Buy! Buy!
