It’s time for another product review, can I get a woot woot? Recently I made the acquaintance of Vlad, the owner of Miracle Clay. He was a generous supporter of the SkinCandyVitamins celebration contest giveaway. I was lucky enough to be asked to test out some of their products; who could turn that offer down?
Although I love trying new products, I’m always a bit cautious because I have very picky skin. I don’t find most products I try to be noteworthy or worth the cash. So I let Vlad know right away that I’d be more then happy to give them a try but if I didn’t like them, I couldn’t possibly write about them. Well here we are so something must have gone right!
The entire line of Miracle Clay products is chemical-free, paraben-free, and vegan. That makes me happy inside. It’s based on a clay called Calcium Montmorillonite Clay, which was originally found in the Amazon rainforest. It’s a healing clay that has been used for centuries to heal the body both inside and out. When you ingest this clay, it helps keep your colon happy and helps your body detox all the bad stuff while giving you back valuable minerals—over 60 to be exact. A clay that helps to keep your body healthy, how cool is that? Your body will thank you!
So, that takes care of your insides. I can hear you asking, “what can it do externally for my skin?” It delivers nutrients and minerals directly to your skin, which can help with anti-aging and beautiful radiance. It also helps keep your skin clear, smooth, and soft while removing impurities and dead skin cells. No chemicals at all, just good minerals. That’s exactly the kind of makeup and cleanser line that I like. It’s natural and nourishing. Plus, this line is very moisturizing so it will also help to prevent wrinkles as well.
First let me straight off that I did like all the products. I can’t wait to try more ant-aging products. The body/face cream called Moisture Intense and the hydrating cream were thick and rich but didn’t clog my pores like a lot of rich creams do. They absorbed quickly and easily, leaving my skin soft with a subtle sheen. It was gorgeous.
The lip balm is a must try and I love to mix it with a bit of lipstick for a nice sheer sheen. It helps to keep my lips super kissable and soft.
One of the hardest things to buy is eye cream. I usually just make my own because I find most products just don’t do what they claim. Plus, eye creams tend to be both too expensive and laden with chemicals or they’re just too light to do much of anything. I prefer eye creams that are rich but absorb well and the Miracle Clay eye cream totally hit my sweet spot. You can see it in the picture—it’s nice and rich, absorbs well, and a little goes a long way. I have been using this eye cream for over a month and I have so much left. It’s great value for your money.
Now hands-down my two stand-out favorite products are the face wash and the clay face mask.
First, let me tell you about the face wash. The cleanser is gentle but has tiny exfoliating beads. It helps cell turn over with the gentle exfoliation and has no problem getting every last trace of my makeup off without drying my skin out. It doesn’t leave your face feeling stripped and too dry after use like some other cleansers. Instead, my skin is soft and happy every time. I don’t wear mascara but I do wear flower-based eye shadows and natural eyeliner— the cleanser wipes it away with no problems.
My second favorite is the clay mask. If you follow me on a regular basis, you know I normally make all my own face masks. When I try pre-packaged ones, I have very low expectations to say the least. I make some pretty powerful and active face masks that really help my skin. So come on, clay…clay is clay is clay and that is most basic face mask you can get. Really what could it do, minerals or no minerals? Well, just putting it on my face proved these minerals are powerful and active, my skin had a visual glow after and I used it up pretty quickly and will be ordering more! I really can’t say enough about the face mask. If you’re looking for radiant skin and, like me, didn’t think it could be found in a branded mask, you absolutely have to give the Miracle Clay Face Mask a try.
Do you have any questions about this skincare line? Let me know. I’d happy to answer them or go to the man in change, Vlad, and get him to spill his secrets.
