    One of the most recent fads is the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay. It has over 12,000 reviews on Amazon, with 71% of reviewers giving it a five-star rating.

    That's...kind of a big deal.

    So we had four people with different skin types try the mask for five days straight to see if their skin improved.

    You mix the clay with either raw apple cider vinegar or water, although reviewers recommend using the vinegar.

    And you only really need about half a tablespoon of the powder itself when mixing your mask.

    On the first day, James noticed the mask was tight!

    On the second day, both Sarah and Alissa noticed a slight improvement in their skin.

    "I gotta say, I think my complexion is actually a little bit better," Sarah said.

    Frank noticed that the red patches on his left cheek had faded a bit.

    "It's still there but it just decreased in size."

    On day three, Sarah left the mask on a little too long and her skin felt really tight afterward (almost like she still had the mask on).

    And since Alissa has combination skin, her face started drying out a bit by then.

    By the fourth day, James said his skin looked really clear and his pores felt super clean. Nice!

    Once the last day rolled around, Alissa and Frank were excited because, although it helped their skin, it was also a huge commitment to do it every single night.

    Oh, and Sarah's dermatologist told her her skin looked great!

    When everything was said and done, Alissa said her skin felt amazing.

    She said she also noticed the pores minimize on her face, so she's definitely incorporating this into her skin care regimen.

    Frank noticed a pimple he started out with on his right cheek was gone by the end of the five days.

    Although James was a little less enthusiastic about the mask, he'd still totally use it again.

    BuzzFeed Boldly

    "I don't think I'm, like, in it for life with this, unfortunately."

    Sarah's skin ended up feeling super smooth, with all the acne she had at the beginning of the trial practically gone.

    BuzzFeed Boldly

    She felt so good about her skin, that she decide to go sans makeup for the day. "It was really nice to go out for once with no makeup and be like, you know what — whatever, this is what my skin looks like and I'm just gonna do it."

    Well, it certainly sounds like the mask was a success, overall. No wonder it earned all those five-star ratings!
