I used to be a beauty mask junkie and would apply a mask to my face at least 5 nights a week rotating between my favorites. Somewhere along the line I got busy and stopped using masks consistently. I forgot how much I like the “spa” like pampering feeling you get when you apply a mask to your face…not to mention the fact that actually do make your skin look better.
I was recently sent samples from Miracle Clay of several clay-based products and my face and body are thanking me for using them.
Miracle Clay’s mission is to make the world healthier and happier by promoting high quality, paraben-free, animal-free, natural skin and health care products that truly do work and are known for their healing qualities. The inspiration behind Miracle Clay was born in the Amazon Rainforests of southeast Peru where the founder, Inna Zatulovsky, first learned about one of the most amazing substances on Earth, Calcium Montmorillonite Clay. Edible Montmorillonite Clay (also known as Bentonite Clay) is very rare and only found in certain desert regions of the world. This unique healing edible clay has been used for a wide range of medicinal purposes for thousands of years by nearly 200 cultures, including the Egyptians, the Aztecs, and other native people of Mexico, South America, and North America. More recently, even NASA astronauts have used Calcium Montmorillonite Clay for strengthening their bodies during space missions.
After using the product for a few weeks I am a real believer in the Clay Mask made with magnetic clay. The clay used to make the mask contains 57 trace minerals that have detoxifying and healing properties. My face feels so clean and smooth after using it. I love it so much that I actually brought it with me on a recent trip! The ingredients are gentle (i.e. chamomile, sea kelp, MeadowSweet, Kanwa Clay, sage), organic when possible, and 100% vegan as well as free of sulfates, parabens and aluminum…yay!
I also really like Miracle Clay’s Moisture Intense Lotion because it truly is moisturizing. I have been using it in the morning after my shower and it is perfect for after shaving and to moisturize areas of the body that tend to get really dry. I find that the lotion is extremely effective at keeping elbows and knees smooth. Oftentimes it seems like lotion will leave my skin greasy, but their lotion did not have this effect on me…it soaked in quickly and seemed to lock into my skin. I am really picky when it comes to scents since I usually do not like to use anything with a strong smell. The Moisture Intense Lotion smells great and is very subtle.
I have been hitting the workouts really hard lately and as a result I am very grateful for the Clay Bath that was sent to me. I have always been a proponent of Epson Salts and now I can add Clay Bath to my list of products that really helps with muscle soreness. All you do it add it to the bath and soak. I have been alternating between the Clay Bath and Epson Salts and that has been doing the trick.
I really do recommend that you try the products from Miracle Clay. I am always happy to throw my support behind a company whose mission is to help others and to do it in a responsible and sustainable way.
