I've been using different kinds of mud/clay mixtures for years to diminish blemishes, and cleanse pores. However, none of the ingredients in those have ever compared to this! This is totally natural, and there's so many wonderful Indian/Ayurvedic herbs in this!! I was reading about the benefits of using Amalaki/Indian Gooseberry on your face; and after some research, I learned that it's a wonderful source of vitamin C (antioxident), that also comes in supplement form. That's actually how I found this product (after searching Amalaki on VitaCost). After reading some of the reviews, and going over the product list, I thought I'd give it a try.
Well, tonight was my first application, which I applied to my face, and part of my neck. The directions say to keep the mud wet, so I did. It has a cooling feeling; very pleasant. The fragrance is very interesting, but not offensive in the least! I left it on for about a half hour, and rinsed off. The end result, is that it didn't overly dry my face like some other mud/clay mixtures. It gave me a nice light rosy glow (and a more even complexion), and my skin felt soft!! I still had some left over, so after the initial rinse off, I used a little bit as spot application. The previous carbon mask I was using will now be replaced with this (it's actually more economical too)!!!
I will be sure to make a note if anything changes; but my first impression is that I absolutely love it!!
