A few weeks ago, I was introduced to Healthway which is a phenomenal brand that specializes in 100% natural products that aim to get rid of skin & health problems. Their products range from personal skin care products to detox products and slimming products and even supplements. I’m pretty sure that they have a solution for every skin issue out there.
The amazing peeps over at Healthway sent me two of their wonderful products, that I will be reviewing today!
I received the No.1 Living Clay Cream and the No.1 Recovery Living Clay and considering that I have been using these products for the last few weeks, I think it’s time I share my thoughts on these products with you guys.
No.1 Living Clay Cream
As this cream is formulated for those with combination-normal skin and benefits those suffering from eczema, itchy skin, dry & sensitive skin, sunburn and sun allergies, I opted to use it on my body and not on my face as I don’t think it’s suitable for acne-prone skin (or it would have stated that on the bottle).
I basically use it as a body lotion and I’m quite happy with the results. I don’t really suffer from the skin conditions that were listed on the bottle, however my knees and elbows do tend to get a little dry from time to time and I’ve noticed that this product stops this from happening.
In general, my body feels quite smooth and nourished when I apply the Living Clay Cream on to it and it also easily absorbs into the skin which is always appreciated. The cream isn’t artificially fragranced which means that it’s suitable for those with sensitive skin too.
The Living Clay Cream is also wonderful for soothing burns and sores. I say that because a few days after I received the product, I accidentally burnt myself around my stomach area. And normally, a burn would cause my skin to bubble or scar, but the morning after I burnt myself I applied a layer of the Living Clay Cream and it immediately soothed it and stopped that eerie, burning sensation.
I’d definitely purchase this product again and at just R90 for a 150ml tub it’s definitely worth it.
No.1 Recovery Living Clay
“Living Clay” is one of natures most effective and tested 100% Natural Healing Materials. Montmorillonite, which is the sole ingredient of Living Clay, is legendary and universally renowned for its therapeutic qualities. It is known for it’s ability to absorb positively charged ions in the body. When wet the Clay develops a strong negative charge. whilst toxins, heavy metals, bacteria and most viruses are positively charged, the Clay therefore draws the impurities out like a magnet.
The Living Clay was really simple to use, all that’s needed is to make a little paste using the clay and water, and then apply either to your entire face or the affected areas. I chose to to just spot treat the areas that had active pimples, I left the clay on for about 25min whilst keeping it damp throughout it’s time on my skin and then washed it off.
I noticed a huge difference when whiteheads were concerned, after washing off the clay the whiteheads would literally be gone, leaving behind just a little red mark that will vanish in about 3 days.
The Living Clay also stimulates circulation, is anti-bacterial and can be used on open wounds therefore it is suitable for those suffering from eczema, psoriasis, rashes, sun burn and even sun damaged skin. The clay also doubles as a mild exfoliator, so when washing off, just rub in a circular motion to begin exfoliating. I’m convinced that the clay will also aid in reducing your pore size and blackheads as it does draw out impurities and bacteria which are the main causes for these skin issues.
I will definitely start using the Living Clay as a face mask soon, but for now I’m really pleased with the results I’m achieving with spot treating. And you can be sure that once this product is finished I’ll definitely be purchasing it again. The 250 ml tub which retails for R210 is equivalent to 25 full face masks which is approximately over 300 spot treats – definitely worth purchasing if you suffer from a ton of whiteheads and pimples.
