I've been using bentonite clay for about a month now and I really feel like it has helped my skin a lot. At the moment my skin is completely clear except for one small under the skin pimple that started to come up. I don't expect it to even come all the way up, as the clay has been pretty much keeping my skin clear. Okay, so this is what I've been doing. I mix equal parts Clay and Coconut oil and use the mixture to exfoliate my face. It won't harden at all; it will feel like diluted paste. The clay will bead up slightly, but if you are noticing huge clay chunks, you may have used too much clay. I scrub scrub scrub...its not irritating at all...the coconut oil soothes and the clay exfoliates. Next, I put a little water on my hands and rub that all over my face, this turns the clay into a mask. I leave that on for 5-15 mins. The mask doesn't get overly dry or irritate my face b/c of the coconut oil, but it will still harden. Then I rinse the mask off and tone with diluted tea tree oil. My face isn't typically really dry after this process, but if it is, I’ll dab a bit of jojoba oil or light moisturizer on it. That's all...my face has been feeling so soft, clean, and refreshed! Side Note: The first 8 days of using the clay, my skin broke out a lot. The clay pulled out all the crud. That being said, I don't think I really have to tell anyone one this site the importance of doing the internal work along with the external. Hope this helps someone!.

Pros:
  • Refreshing
  • Pulls out toxins
  • Cleared my skin after after about week
Cons:
  • Messy
  • Can be drying (read "Bottom line", I mix with Coconut oil to prevent drying)

I used this product with ACV and although it made my skin feel smooth for a couple hours after I would remove the mask, I would usually get breakouts in the days following. If I was not acne prone I would probably use this stuff because I love the way it makes my face feel. However, it is way too drying for use with Dan's regimen. Also be careful, this may clog sinks.

  • for a few weeks
  • I do not recommend using this product/treatment.

Not sure what all the hype is about. I tried this several times, both with just water and apple cider vinegar, and I didn't notice a difference in my skin. In fact, I think it made my skin a bit worse, and not because the clay pulled out impurities. I didn't feel it working, even when I left it on for 30 minutes.

Pros

  • Slight improvement in skin texture sometimes

Cons

  • No change in acne
  • No overall lasting improvement
  • messy
  • for a few months
  • $ 8
  • I do not recommend using this product/treatment.

I wouldn't recommend this product. I felt like it made my skin too dry & irritated and actually made my breakouts worse. Since using this, I've been on Dan's regimen for about 2 months and I've had much better results.

  • moderately severe
  • for a few weeks
  • $ 8
  • I do not recommend using this product/treatment.

This product has great reviews everywhere, but every time I use it with ACV I break out. I thought my acne would just get worse before getting better but it would always get worse the next day.

Pros

  • Natural

Cons

  • Drying
  • moderately severe
  • for about a month
  • $ 20
  • I do not recommend using this product/treatment.

Get this mask. You'd wish you got this sooner

Pros

  • Feels like it effectively removes buildup in your pores
  • brightens skin (after redness goes away)
  • Versatile to mix with other things like water, witch hazel, or apple side vinegar
  • lessens breakouts and shrinks pores

Cons

  • Your face will be red after you remove this mask, but its not so much irritation as it is bringing circulation to your face
  • moderately severe
  • for a few months
  • $ 5
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.

i have only started using this product mixing it Apple cider vinegar as a masque (1hour wearing)

I feel this is going to be a good treatment as I have very oily skin with very aggravated red cystic acne! :(

with oily skin/ acneic we need to draw out all impurities and oils, killing the bacteria. will update in a month to see outcome.

Pros

  • a very relaxing experience
  • can feel your pores being cleansed
  • pulsating on your face

Cons

  • I've only just started using it
  • as expected it draws out impurities however is a pro as i believe this is a case of getting worse before it gets better
  • moderately severe
  • for a day or two
  • $ 24
  • I recommend using this product/treatment.
