I’ve tried a lot of face masks in my life — from dirt-cheap impulse purchases to $80 award-winning at-home facials — and nothing has worked as well for clarity as this giant $11 tub of the Aztec Secret Clay Mask.
It has nearly 16,000 reviews on Amazon, and after seeing it all over the internet and having a colleague call it her “most recommended product,” I gave it a shot.
It basically acts like a vacuum for your pores in the 5-20 minutes it’s on.

Even though I’ve been obsessed with face masks for years, this is the only one that I would go so far as to claim has actually markedly (and for the long-term) improved my skin. After a few weeks of using it once a week, my temperamental combination skin is smoother, clearer, and more even overall.
The Aztec Clay Mask basically acts like a vacuum for your pores in the 5-20 minutes it’s on. The 100% natural calcium bentonite clay draws out all the impurities deep in your skin for what has been called ‘the world’s most powerful facial’. I can’t say it’s “the world’s most” anything, but it is the first thing I have ever used that wasn’t prescribed by a dermatologist and actually works. In fact, it’s …read more
