Everybody’s been talking about this supposedly very effective clay mask that will work wonders on your face, removing acne after just a few uses. Yes, we’ve all heard about it—the ever-so-famous Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay that everyone seems to be raving about on the internet. A lot of reviews have been made about it, mostly positive ones, of people saying how it basically changed their lives. While we all want to try it, the sad part is that it’s sold out everywhere.
If you missed out on the recent restock on this holy grail product but still want to treat yourself to an amazing clay mask, don’t you worry. We listed some products that are practically just as good as the Aztec Indian Healing Clay mask, and you don’t even have to stand line for hours to buy these.
GlamGlow started as a brand that only catered to Hollywood celebrities, and with this, came a lot of people curious as to where they can buy those greenish-blue masks that seemed to have taken over Instagram by storm. A few months later, Glamglow became available in stores and people flocked the shelves for it–because who doesn’t want that good old Hollywood glow, right?
Pros: It’s a relatively thin mask, which makes it easier to apply and remove. As it dries up on your skin, you can actually feel (and see!) the oil from your pores getting soaked up.
Cons: It’s kind of really pricey, but for those who want to really invest in skincare, why not? The Aztec Indian Healing Clay mask is actually the dupe for this one.
Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque
A favorite of former SCOUT cover girl Martine Cajucom, the Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque is famous for its natural and simple take on skincare. The skincare line boasts their use of natural ingredients instead of artificial ones, which may be too harsh on some skin types.
Pros: The mask will give you a really cool and refreshed feeling after rinsing. It’s been proven to be effective in removing blackheads and acne, plus it’s only less than P500 at any Healthy Options branch nationwide.
Cons: The mask comes in a tube packaging, which makes it hard to squeeze out the product since it’s a thick mask.
The Innisfree Volcanic Pore Clay Mask is made out of clay from the volcanic eruptions on Jeju Island, Korea. This clay mask is one of the many best-selling products of this popular Korean skincare brand, so for all of you who want to have that glow that we see in most Koreans, this one is for you.
Pros: It can remove dead skin and sebum off of your face, giving you visibly clearer skin right after rinsing.
Cons: It’s kind of hard to get out of the tub because it’s a bit too thick.
Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask is made up of charcoal powder and mud, which are guaranteed to remove any excess dirt from your skin. And the coolest thing about this mask is that it bubbles up on your skin, making your face look like it’s all foamed up. If you want to have fun and get some healthy skin, this gets the job done.
Pros: The mask will make your skin feel tight and clean, effectively removing oil and dirt.
Cons: It will make your skin feel a little dry, so it’s not recommended for people with dry skin.
Lush Cupcake Face Mask
Okay, so this is actually a fresh face mask and not a genuine clay mask, but this is just too yummy (literally, just look at its name) to resist! Cult favorite brand Lush is home to a lot of skincare gems and bath products. All of their products are handmade and preservative-free, which guarantees that you won’t be putting any unnecessary stuff in your skin. You can get this Cupcake mask, which smells exactly the way it sounds, it at any Lush store.
Pros: Like all Lush products, it smells amazing, and it really cleans your face, removing all oils and excess dirt all while making your skin soft and smooth.
Cons: It’s preservative-free, so you should store it in the refrigerator and use it all up in about 3 weeks.
