The main ingredient to expensive  masks is bentonite clay.  Kitty litter with no added ingredients is nothing more than bentonite clay.  Here is a recipe  you can make that will give you a professional mask costing  pennies to make.  

The reason this mask works so well is when water is added to the kitty litter it changes the molecular structure and  an electrical charge is produced which draws out the toxins into the clay removing them from your body.  If you do not like the idea of using kitty litter for a mask you can buy bentonite clay at most health food stores.  
This mask works best on oily skin with large pores.  Do not use if you have dry skin.  


KITTY LITTER ( sandy type is best) MAKE SURE IT IS 100% natural with NO additives
ESSENTIAL OIL your choice 
COFFEE GRINDER OR HAMMER/ CLOTH ( if you have granular types)

<p>ds s very interesting n helpful,,wl try it with olive oil...tnx a lot !</p>
Would this work on oily skin? Because I know cat litter absorbs liquids, right? Wonderful idea! Never thought of it=)
<p>My guess is that it will! Cheap to try so go for it! I hope your day shines!</p><p>sunshiine~</p>
<p>can i do lemon juice or pure juice instead of expensive oils?</p>
Cool I did a similar facial instead mine was for acne and was made of honey and cinnamon.
It seems great. I will try it.
Thanks for commenting and do have a happy 4th.<br />Sunshiine
great idea, but i have cleaned TOO many cat boxes to ever do this.<br>
I hear you! LOL
Isn't kitty litter bad for pregnant women, or is that a wife's tale? haha
It's used cat litter that pregnant women are told to avoid (and cat poo in general) because of the risk of toxoplasmosis, caused by a parasite. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toxoplasmosis Yeah, yeah, wikipedia isn't the best source. Here's another one. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/toxoplasmosis/DS00510
I am guessing if it is bad it is after cats have used it and changing the litter would be bad for pregnant women possibly because of the bacteria. I have not heard anything but that would be my guess.
When I clean my <a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/" rel="nofollow"><b>UGG Boots</b></a>, I always be so careful and gentle. I perfer use my hands to other instruments. I suggest to use Diaopai soap than other detergents because I think Diaopai soap can wash my <a href="http://www.ugglinks.com/ugg-30th-anniversary-c-65.html" rel="nofollow"><b>UGG Classic Boots</b></a> so clean and white. First, you should make Diaopai soap full foaming and then use your hands to make your boots be full of bubble. All these are done and then you can use your hands to constant rubbing on the surface, which is in order to make your boots new.

Well......sounds good......looks cool. I have used bentonite in the process of &quot;clogging&quot; pipes to prevent water and gases from coming through. It came in a dust form , added water to pump it in the pipe. I do know &quot;Fuller's Earth&quot; is the clay used to make many brands of Cat Litter though. It is about 60 feet below earth level. The &quot;dust&quot; from it is very absorbent too. It will suck up an oil spill better than most things I have ever seen. If possible I suggest using the &quot;Dust&quot; from the granules and mix with water or lemon to a &quot;peanut butter&quot; texture. Just some input here, not taking away from this idea.
Your comment is most welcomed, thanks for the input.
In India they use a mixture of honey and tumeric, in fact that is a tradition for brides on their wedding day. It makes the skin glow. (no, you will not look jaundiced, the yellow washes away with the honey.) Thanks for a good idea!
Thanks, interesting comment.
<br> The kids walked in, took one look.. screamed &quot;Arrggghhh it's the potty monster!!!&quot; and ran out.<br> <br> <br>
It's not used kitty litter is it?
LOL I liked the pun.
Wow I would of never thought of that! I might use olive oil instead of an essential oil since I don't know if mine would irritate my face.
That is a great idea! I will try it next time.
