From facials to foot soaks and acne spot treatments, fans of the multitasking mask, which is made with all-natural calcium bentonite clay to detoxify skin, swear by Aztec Secret for just about every skin concern.

For a healthy glow: “A dear friend introduced me to the clay almost two years ago while I was recovering from breast cancer, and I've never stopped using it. While in treatment, I was tired and looked run-down. Enter the magic clay. I did a mask using raw organic apple cider vinegar and felt my face pulsing so much, I looked in the mirror to see if it was moving. It 'sucked' out so many toxins, I looked years younger,” explained a happy customer. “My skin looks beautiful. I rarely have a breakout. I feel energized. Most of all, I'm happy with how I look and feel. One tub lasts about a year with weekly use.”

For an anti-aging facial: “My skin looks 15 years younger and more. I had good skin before; now it’s great,” raved a buyer. “Now at 69, I look much younger and fresher at my 50th class reunion than the rest. I take pride in my skin.”

For foot baths: “I have known about this product but mainly as a facial for the past 10 years. Over the past week I learned that it can be used on the hair,” wrote a loyal customer who called it a “versatile miracle.” She added: “What got me tonight was I decided to do a foot soak, and I was blown away.... My foot felt brand-new. So, in essence, without having to scrub but instead just barely rubbing my foot, all the dead skin came off. I followed up by putting on some whipped shea butter and socks and feel great.”

For acne: “I waited a year, after using up a whole jar and re-ordering, before writing a review,” explained one loyalist, who called it a “skin-saving product for an unbelievable price.... This clay mask is magical. The cystic acne that usually lasts one to two weeks is gone either overnight...or by the following day.... I have used this mixed with water and apple cider vinegar. It doesn't seem to do much/anything mixed with water, but is magical with the vinegar. I always need to moisturize extra well after using this.”

For sensitive skin and keratosis pilaris: “I have extremely sensitive skin and I'm allergic to basically everything, so I was very hesitant to try this product. I bought a plastic kit with measuring spoons and a bowl to mix the clay with as you should not use any type of metal (chemical reaction),” wrote a reviewer. “The clay works amazing on my skin. It will bring pimples to the surface (purging) and shrinks pores especially around my nose area.... I have also applied the paste to the back of my thighs where I have mild Keratosis pilaris and it has greatly reduced the bumps.”

For mature skin: “I have heard so much praise about this clay that I was very skeptical. But this stuff is great!” added a buyer. “When I rinsed it off, my 60-plus-year-old face felt like baby skin.... This is like a charcoal detox and a facial. I get as good a result from this once a week as the very costly micro-abrasion cream I had been using.... I'm amazed that a product this affordable is so good.”
