clay face mask
26 Jul, 2016, By Antoinette
Tip: mix this with some water in the tip of a plastic baggie until smooth, then squueze out and apply! I use this mask twice a week and just love what it does to my skin! Recommended!
great to use as a tooth paste
07 Jun, 2016, By Christina MmaTeboho
Perfect! My teeth have never been so cleaner. i really love this clay.
Not the easiest to use...
27 Apr, 2016, By Cheri
Im not sure what I am doing wrong, but this stuff does not dissolve - in anything. I tried it in the bath, in a glass of water mixed with honey and or coconut oil. All you get is a mess really - nothing sticks to the side of your bath quite like this stuff!! Saying that though - once you get some kind of emulsion with the coconut oil - it works very well as a mask for acne! It dries them right up.
Nautica Bentonite Healing Clay

This is an amazing product. I used it on my face as a mask and my skin was left soft and cleansed and drank it for a severe pain I was experiencing in my lower left abdomen and it worked 100% to detoxify my system and ease the pain. I even tried it on my mums cats to help them with runny tummys they were having and it stopped it and hard no harmful effect on them. My mum was so happy this product I had to give her my clay and purchase another one for myself. Would recommend this product to anyone to buy.

This works beautifully on the skin. I leave it for a bit to blend properly when mixing it with water, and works fine. Ive noticed less blemishes, smaller pores, and beautiful looking skin. Also the foot soak works wonderfully. Ive even used some on a fever blister, and it helped dry it out and heal it up in about 3 days, which is a record! Its one of my must-buys! :)
Bentonite clay: Good stuff
10 Mar, 2016, By Karyn
Despite some reviews ive read, i did not have any bad reactions to the face mask i made from this clay. I am so chuffed with it! I mixed in a few drops of tea tree oil (i have acne) and left it on my face for about an hour till it hardened- and OH boy does it harden! A gentle wash later and my skin felt so good. Worth every cent, a little goes a long way
25 Feb, 2016, By Jacqueline
I love this! I like putting on a mask if my face looks a little spotty, or putting some on an ingrown hair.. Works just great.. Thank you so much
12 Feb, 2016, By Michelle
This stuff tastes vile! Lol and its quite difficult to mix. My sister and I are both obsessed with this clay, and what we do it we put it in an old har with plastic lid with some water and shake it until its smooth; easiest way! This stuff really works Will buy again thanx
Works well in a Toothpaste
11 Feb, 2016, By Rita
The Nautica Bentonite Healing Clay, coconut oil and peppermint oil work well together as a toothpaste.
02 Feb, 2016, By Idah
Tried this on my 4c hair and my coils are nicely defined. I used it with apple cider vinegar, olive oil and will have to purchase more of this. It works for the skin as well, love and loving it. Xxx
Good for cleanse
17 Jan, 2016, By Jan
Used this for 10 days together with a psyllium husk fiber product as a cleanse and it did a great job. It was vile to get down though and I am not finicky normally. A case of mind over matter.
10 Sep, 2015, By Shaazia
This is by far my favourite product.. I have a whole list of skin problems so when I switched to natural this was the 1st product I tried and will continue to use as it soothes and calms any pimples that I have..also noticed a marked improvement in my blackheads and doesn irritate my super sensitive skin at all..
This is how to use it as a mask...
17 Jul, 2015, By Lauren D
This stuff is fabulous. It is initially tricky to use, but I searched on making a mask and found this great tip: Use a small wooden spoon to mix some up with water in a small zip-lock bag with a small, let it stand a little while to absorb in properly, and then knead it smooth in the bag. You should make it into a fairly thin texture, like thin yoghurt, and then apply thinly with something like a foundation brush. It then goes on smoothly, dries in 15mins, and washes off easily. Ive heard you can also mix with plain yoghurt instead of water.
I love this stuff. I have oily, sensitive and problematic skin. This leaves my skin firm and smooth, and my spots have cleared up beautifully, and my pores appear finer. I use it 2-3 times a week, and follow up with a hydrating mask. I will not let myself run out of this. Its also great value for money.
Firm and fine
07 Jul, 2015, By Anushka
What a lovely mask this makes. I felt the firmness of my skin as soon as I washed it off. It makes a lovely once a week treat mask and allows for some always needed me-time:)
18 Jun, 2015, By Tyrrah
I tried some in warm water and it works the next morning. Well worth the price and you could not get the same benefit from store bought products. Also a great hand mask for those dishwashed frazzled hands.

Awesome versatile product! My dog had a festering sore between his toes - the ointment I got from the Vet did not help and the dog was in agony. I made a paste of bentonite clay and put a blob between the toes. Within seconds he experienced relief and within two days the sore had dried up and healed quickly thereafter. Later I used it with the same success on his tail when it was nicked and he started chewing it. Great face mask too!

This amazing product is a versatile miracle.
It can be used in any way shape and form. It works perfectly as a facial mask, leaving skin radiant and soft to the touch.
Add it to your bath for a relaxing soak after a hard work week.

This definitely works on acne!
08 Mar, 2015, By Thato
Ive stopped using toothpaste and use this as my earthpaste instead. I love it!!! I might be dreaming but my teeth are whiter and brighter since using this as a toothpaste instead of the industrial junk.
All I do take several spoonfuls and pour water and let it sit for 24 hrs. Thats about enough earthpaste for a few weeks for me. You can be creative and add lemon and whatever other natural flavourants to give it an extra kick but its fine just as it is for me.
Oh... You can also use this for great face masks too
Product doesn really work
16 Feb, 2015, By Vee
This product is not bad but its not so effective. not life changing at all. using eggs or an avocado as a mask is way better then buying this product.
Hard to mix
27 Jan, 2015, By Crystal
I believe this products works well as a facial mask and my skin did improve. Just bare in mind its not as easy to mix as it claims.
Best for acne woes
20 Jan, 2015, By Yasmeen
I have had acne since hitting puberty, and have always suffered with breakouts. I started using this product and I have found a significant decrease in breakouts. My skin is so much softer,and looks healthier. The scars and pigmentation have begun to get lighter. My face looks a lot better, and I am more confident. Wish I had discovered it years ago. I have been using it as a face mask for two weeks to date.
this product is fantastic
11 Nov, 2014, By Benjamin
Im suffering from candida, and I tried many supplements but none worked so fast as bentonite clay. After one week my head started to become clearer and Im feeling way better. Im going to keep using it for a month as a cleanse. Im planning on trying diatomaceous earth to help kill off the yeast.
11 Nov, 2014, By Mia
I love this product, makes my skin feel smooth and soft, i still have a little redness but much better than before :) also, you only need a very little at a time so it lasts!
Cleared up spots in 2 days
30 Oct, 2014, By Jo
Amazing product, it cleared up my acne breakout with only 2 applications over 3 days. Applied as a face mask, and washed off as soon as it was dry. Amazing results and highly recommended!
Hair Mask and detox
18 Sep, 2014, By Bridgitte potton
Used Bentonite Clay as a hair mask and have seen a real difference - gives the hair a thorough ‘detox’, removing build up and dirt. My hair is full and shiny for the first time in ages. I also use it to bath with when I feel I need a detox. The first time I bathed with it I was unprepared for the full effect ... I had a whopping headache the next day. So a warning ... drink lots of water and help your body out with light/healthy food and something like dandelion tea/milk thistle when you do!
08 Aug, 2014, By Emily
My friends and I LOVE the Bentonite clay! Amazing! :)
30 May, 2014, By TAMMY
What a great face mask this makes! My face looked radiant and clear after just one application. I add it to my bath for a heavenly detox session. Great product and great price!
My skin feels amazing!
28 May, 2014, By Amber
I am so glad I tried this product! My face has cleared up from having acne to having hardly any spots in just two weeks, if I add some to my bath water my skin feels super soft and silly afterwards! Fantastic!
Great for detoxing
20 Jan, 2014, By Gerda
The Nautica Bentonite Healing Clay was great for detoxing, feeling alot better after using it for 3 days in a row
Miracle cure for all!
15 Jan, 2014, By Carla
I LOVE this product! We bath in it (makes your skin silky smooth), drink it (when your tummy is upset) and even put it on any itches (Either from insect bites or skin irriations) - thats why I say its a miracule cure and would recommend it to anyone...
