I’ve been masking the heck out of my skin for the last few months, and have been loving the results! I got my hands on the Tru Self Organics detoxifying clay mask recently, and had to share my thoughts with you.
Tru Self Organics makes all natural products for your skin, and this mask is one of them. It comes as a powder that you mix with either water or apple cider vinegar, which came in the kit (you can also buy the mask separately). The mask is created with multiple forms of clay- all natural, of course. This masks promises to help with many things including: blemishes, wrinkles, acne, pores, and detoxifying.

I have the detox kit which includes the mask, apple cider vinegar, a mixing bowl, spatula, and measuring spoons
The mask comes in a powder form which you can mix with either water or the provided apple cider vinegar
I find that the middle measuring spoon full of the mask, and the same quantity of water (or apple cider vinegar) creates a good thick consistency. I’ve also tried it on with a little more water and liked the thinner mask as well. I noticed that when I mix this mask with apple cider vinegar the mask fizzes, which is normal.
It applies much like a normal clay mask does, but I noticed that it dries much faster than most. Every single time, at around the 7 minute mask, the mask tightens exponentially, leaving me with a feeling of sucking. It almost feels like my skin is getting a facelift and gunk is being sucked out! At first when this happened I was a bit worried, but I’m used to it now.
The instructions say you can leave it on for 10-30 minutes, but I can’t seem to get to 30 minutes. The most I have done is 20, and the least, 15. I like the 15 minute version better because its a bit uncomfortable to wear for longer than that.
Now to the results: After washing off the mask and patting my face dry, I noticed a tightness around my mouth area which tends to always happen to me after washing my face. It was a little intensified though, because of the clay in the mask. I noticed immediately how baby soft my skin felt- like a babys bottom, literally! A lot of my normally textured skin was much more calm, and my pores had virtually disappeared! This was my favorite result, because my pores around my nose and on are HUGE! Not to mention, my pesky blackheads were gone too.
I have to say though, that using this mask with water has been more beneficial to me than with the apple cider vinegar. The vinegar is a bit harsh for me and caused bumps and redness while the water method did not.
I’ve tried the mask on at night and morning, and I prefer the results I get at night and the fact that I still look and feel great the next couple of days.
