The Fresh Umbrian Clay Treatment Bar is a purifying face and body mask made from 100% Umbrian Clay. The clay works as a deep cleanser, that works to detoxify and clear any unwanted spots. The high mineral content in Umbrian clay absorbs any toxins in the pores and is soothing enough to calm any irritation on the skin.
"Umbrian Clay occurs naturally and solely in the Italian town of Nocera Umbra. It has been the basis of therapeutic treatments for centuries, dating back to the 6th century B.C." - Sephora.com
After reading all of the reviews and doing a little research about Umbrian Clay, I was definitely excited to give this a try. Although I was not thrilled that the product is in bar form (since it gets a little messy to work with), the Fresh Umbrian Clay Treatment Bar really does wonders for my skin. I use it as a once a week treatment (twice a week if my skin is going through a rough time), and I can definitely see and feel a difference. After every treatment, the mask leaves my face feeling so clean and incredibly moisturized (unlike other masks that might make your skin feel a little bit tight).
The Fresh Umbrian Clay Treatment Bar works great for both the face and body, but I mainly use it as a facial mask. Run the bar under warm water and massage it onto your skin around your face and let set for about 10 minutes before rinsing. If you're not a fan of facial masks, you can use the Fresh Umbrian Clay Treatment Bar as a spot treatment instead, just applying it where you notice any spots.
