I was skeptical at first because this item did not have an inner seal. I ask a question on Amazon to confirm and after that used the product. I mixed the healing clay with AVC to a smooth consistency and applied to my face. It goes on smooth and dries well. I felt it tighten on my face. Once completely dry I washed it off and my skin felt amazingly soft. I’ve used it once a week for a month and my skin looks fantastic and my oil production has evened out. I like it so much I’ve already recommended it to several friends.
