It's review time!

UPDATE (2017): For Malaysians, you guys can purchase this from https://www.beautyspot.my/products/aztec-secret-indian-healing-clay-deep-pore-cleansing-1-lb which sells this product at a very cheap price! 

Product: Aztec Secret Indian healing clay


Size: 908g

Price: RMB140.   ( do note that this is not in Ringgit )

Purchased from: taobao

Info:


100% natural calcium bentonite (green) clay
For facials, acne, body wraps, clay baths, foot soaks, chilled clay for knee packs.
Handy for insect bites!
Enjoy the benefits of clay in your own home.
Beautify and refresh just as Cleopatra used clay in her beauty ritual in ancient Egypt.


Directions:


Mix healing clay with equal parts of raw apple cider vinegar and/or water.
Best to use a non-metal bowl and utensil.
Stir mixture well, until it is a smooth paste.
Add more clay or liquid as needed.
Apply 1/4 to 1/2 inch layer to the face or other area.
Let it dry for 5-10 min. for delicate skin & 15-20 min for normal skin.
You will feel a pulling and tightening sensation.
FEEL YOUR FACE PULSATE!
Remove clay by washing with warm water
Slight redness of skin is normal and will disappear in about 30 min.


Helps to remove impurities and dirt from the pores.
Deep pore cleansing of the skin.

908g is claimed to be able to make 20-30 facials but from what I can see, it can certainly make more than that. 


My experience:

Mixing the clay with apple cider vinegar was indeed a fun process! 
You will see bubbles, like lots n lots of bubbles!
I don't enjoy the smell though.
It's well, smell of apple mix with vinegar.
I use 1 tablespoon of clay and 1 tablespoon of vinegar.
That is actually more than enough!

I actually prefer mixing it with apple cider vinegar despite the smell for various reasons:
It doesn't clump up like when you mix it with water.
The effect seems so much better.

Watch as the mixture bubbles up more:





More bubbles are formed and mixture is quite mixed:





Mixture is completely stirred and thoroughly mixed:





This is the brand that I use although it's better to use Bragg's ACV!





The mixture is done! As you can see, no more bubbles:
