I have had acne for 5 years. I tried many topical products. I tried topical exfoliates, they worked for the first few weeks then stopped and my acne returned to its normal state. I tried anti inflammatory creams, they never did anything for my acne. I tried a lot of different face wash that was supposed to treat acne-none of the face washes I tried helped clean my acne. I tried on-the-spot acne treatment creams and they did not help. The products I tried would actually make my skin and complexion worse by burning, chapping, flaking or drying out my skin. I had dark spots and scars all the time. The acne was always present.
Anjelika made a blend of clay specific for my skin condition. Initially, I used it 3 times a week. After the first week my skin had improved tremendously. My acne seemed to dry up and disappear, I had no breakouts & no returning acne. After the second, my problem areas felt like "when you get a scrape or cut, and it is almost heeled and the scab is dry, and starts to itch." It felt like my acne was almost "healed" and was starting to itch. The clay was healing my skin. I refused the urge to scratch, and my skin was completely clear from acne by the second week. My complexion was improving as fast as my acne was healing and disappearing. My skin was completely smooth, no more bumpy acne or rough spots, my skin was clean and soft. After 2 months of using the clay not only did I have no more acne or breakouts, but it was healing my skin of the scars and dark spots from 5 years of having acne. After 3 months of not having any breakouts or dirty acne ridden skin, the scars started to also disappear. My complexion looked brighter and smoother, my skin tone was balanced.
Eight months forward, I still use the clay 3 times a week two times on the problem areas "cheeks" and once on my whole face, It keeps the acne from coming back. It keeps my skin looking clean and feeling fresh and soft without drying it. It brightens my complexion and skin tone every time I use it. No more acne what so ever. Just soft, smooth skin all the time.

Our combination of clays acts like a micro-molecule sponge, removing impurities: dust, oil, dead skin, and other contaminants. It absorbs and pulls toxic substances from the skin invigorating facial complexion and tightening pores. Applying clay mixture to the skin as a mask feeds the growth of new cells by promoting blood flow and leaves the skin feeling smooth and revitalized.
Facial clay mixes into a paste by adding water. Smooth the mixture on the neck and face avoiding the eyes. Leave the mask on for 30 minutes, and apply daily for problematic skin (acne, pimples, etc) and once a week for a normal skin.
