It took me 2 years to work out the right kind of clay. I once dream of, attempted gel-like peel off mask. When I eventually found out that the element of glue is inevitable, I gave up the idea and turned to soft clay mask with the four main ingredient of diatomaceous earth, corn flour, sodium alginate and citrus pectin.
The review so far has been great with reported smoother & brighter skin. Are you not tempted?
