Review – PLEASE listen to me. This product ruined my skin.
I bought Indian healing clay a two-pound tub of this back in August/September 2016, but I only started using it regularly in the last week of December. I was convinced that it would work, reading all the amazing reviews, and I dismissed the handful of bizarre and radical negative reviews (getting burn marks from a clay mask?) as paid reviews. started using this so late after buying it because I felt three or four small, hard lumps underneath my skin on my cheek: that’s how my bad pimples usually start, gathering forces under my skin and then unleashing their cultivated devastation on the surface: my skin. those types of pimples on my face before, only on my butt. Now that I had this ‘miracle worker,’ however, I was determined to rid myself of the impurities. I let my face dry, then applied my regular toner and moisturizer.
My pimples came to the surface. They were red, inflamed, juicy, painful whiteheads. I figured it was working, the purging period where all of my grossness had come to the surface.
Previously, my skin had no blemishes. NONE. I only wanted to draw out those four troublesome lumps under my skin. My friends and family commented that I was breaking out, telling me to eat healthier, drink more water, wash my face, go to sleep earlier. Little did they know I was already doing all of those. My other cheek, which had always been the healthier of the two, having never suffered even ONE mildly red, large, or painful pimple, also began breaking out. I thought that all of this was a result of the purging period that everyone had spoken about, ‘your skin will get worse before it gets better,’ so I pushed on.
It is now nearing the end of January and I have almost used this mask for a month. pimples in clusters on my cheeks, my temples, my jawline, pimples that have not come to a head despite this clay’s claim of bringing all the gunk to the surface. I have been positive until now, believing that it was the dark before the dawn, brushing off the pimples’ existence and imagining my miraculous recovery when the purging period ended and all of my pimples went away, but my skin is getting worse and the first pimples that are fading with time leave brown blemishes. Look at the pictures for yourself. I have no ‘Before’ pictures because my skin had one or two pimples, nothing more.
In regards to the review that said it was blasphemous for anyone to have negative reactions because this Bentonite Clay was 100% “good ol’ dirt,” you must have considered that people are allergic to things in nature too. I must also say that I read that review before buying it, and nodded in complete agreement. It was one of the reviews that convinced me to buy this product.
I have never written a review before, even if something wasn’t as stellar as it touted itself to be, but for something like this that ruins what it’s supposed to fix, I have to. My skin hurts when I wash it even though my cleansers contain no exfoliants. Any pressure whatsoever hurts it. I’m not angry, just … disappointed, discouraged, put-off, even sad. Clearly this worked for many people, but I suppose it’s not for me. My pimples, aside from being large and juicy, red and inflamed, have now also begun to flake off bits of skin.
I’ve never been on a quest to fix my skin since it was fine as it was before, but now I must find a way to fix what happened to it.
Please don’t think this product is a malicious one guaranteed to destroy your skin, but if it only worsens your skin even after several weeks, past the acceptable purging period time, then be wary of it.
I’ll be looking into soothing, also natural products for now. Important information
