"I just can't get over how amazing it is...my skin looks so much better on the days after I use it. Love, love love it!"
"The smells is delicious and reminds me of Christmas gingerbread cookies my grandmother used to make. It gives my skin the most beautiful glow."
"I have never used an exfoliant regularly before this one because I felt like they were too harsh on my skin. My skin would be red and raw afterwards and for someone who already has a lot of redness on her skin, that is definitely not what I'd want to see.
Since my skin has been on the drier side lately, an exfoliant was becoming more necessary in my routine and this one is awesome. It doesn't leave my skin feeling stripped afterwards, it just feels soft and looks brighter. My makeup applies so much better! I especially love mixing it with The Honey Mud and a bit of water to create a really nice, thick consistency. I actually look forward to exfoliating now so this will be a definite repurchase :)"
"I like taking the time to use the cleansing clay and mask…I am a male customer and these are excellent at fixing ingrown hair and razor rashes!"
"The best cleanser/exfoliant I have ever used! I am in my thirties and have normal-oily skin. I have been using the Clean Dirt for the past 6 months, 2-3 times a week (and there's still a tiny bit left, time for re-purchase!). I also use The Jasmine Garden before applying my moisturizer and The Honey Mud one a week. Besides lasting a really long time, I really love how my skin looks and feels. The Clean Dirt helped diminish my acne scars and it keeps my pores clean and clear from blackheads - I also noticed my skin tends to breakout much less than before."
"…no more Clarisonic - I'm a Clean Dirt girl now…I am one of those women who have tried everything (54) and have never been this impressed."
"This exceeded by expectations in terms of effectiveness, leaving my skin incredibly soft, clean, and glowing. It is ever so slightly tricky to use, it took me a few tries to figure out how to add just enough water to make a mousse rather than a runny mess! Having said this, I am prepared to continue using this for the outstanding results. It's also a good value for money - I can see the bottle lasting me a long time based on 2-3 uses per week."
"Holy grail. I use this and look years younger."
"I use this exfoliator every other day and it has cleared all of the gunk out of my pores, making them appear smaller. This is the most gentle exfoliator I have ever used. I don't feel like I am damaging my skin and it is made with very mild ingredients. A little goes a long way so the bottle should last a while. My acne scarring is fading from my regular, gentle exfoliation."
"I used the 'clean dirt' this morning and wanted to tell you honestly that that is THE BEST cleanser I have used to date."
The Clean Dirt
MY SKIN IS SENSITIVE AND PRONE TO DEHYDRATION. CAN I STILL USE THIS?
Dehydration often stems from stagnation in the skin and a compromised barrier that does not allow for the balanced production of your own natural oils or absorption of your moisturizers. Proper exfoliation is key. If you are particularly sensitive, leave this treatment for just once weekly, brushing it on gently. Allow to sit for a minute or two, and rinse in the shower, or by splashing face with warm water to release the formula gently without rubbing or scrubbing; also avoiding face cloths.
Immediately follow with The Youth Dew and/or The Blue Cocoon - this is vital, as The Clean Dirt essentially provides a gentle resurfacing of your complexion, allowing for the deepest, most effective penetration of your other treats. You will want to apply your oils while skin is still warm, wet, and fully receptive for the ultimate benefit.
SHOULD I USE THE CLEAN DIRT EVERY DAY?
Begin by incorporating The Clean Dirt every second or third day, increasing or decreasing as you find the rhythm that suits your individual needs. A good guideline is to exfoliate as often as you shampoo, so I most often incorporate this into my morning ritual. This seems to be the most appropriate timing for me, and also allows me to indulge in the shower for the least mess (it's worth it, I promise!). I let the formula sit on my skin while I run conditioner through my hair and scrub my body. It's the perfect amount of time, and when I rinse, massaging with my fingertips, both my hair and skin are silky smooth. Adjust to your preference - morning and night are equally wonderful.
DOES THE CLEAN DIRT REMOVE MAKEUP?
This formula removes light makeup and the daily grime. The Clean Dirt is an exfoliant, so is not to be used on the eye area. If you wear eye makeup, heavy foundation, or sunscreen, begin with The Pendulum Potion, following with The Clean Dirt. When skin is bare, go ahead and go straight to The Clean Dirt alone.
I'VE HEARD YOU LIKE TO MIX THE CLEAN DIRT AND THE HONEY MUD. WHY AND HOW DO YOU DO THIS?
This is my favorite treat on days my skin feels stressed or sensitive, but when I'm also craving effective exfoliation and the glow that only The Clean Dirt can bring.
Start with about 50/50 ratio - 1 tsp. of The Clean Dirt, 1 tsp. of The Honey Mud and about ½ tsp. of water as needed. This will come together as a soft, luscious, and totally decadent treatment that will give serious results with a bit more mellowness than a full-strength session. You can also add several pumps of The Pendulum Potion when needing a surge of moisture. Leave this on as a mini treatment for up to 20 minutes, or simply enjoy a quick massage with the pads of your fingertips, and then rinse.
WHAT EXACTLY DOES THE CLEAN DIRT DO?
The Clean Dirt gently exfoliates, easing congestion and stagnation and helping you to shed dead and dehydrated skin. This stimulating treatment transforms and refines skin's appearance - addressing issues of uneven skin tone and discoloration, dryness, flakiness, oil imbalances and acne. It helps to fade scars and residual redness from past outbreaks while brightening your overall complexion.
WHAT DOES THE CLEAN DIRT SMELL LIKE?
To me, it feels like I bottled Christmas. There is a warm scent of cinnamon and ginger cookies, with layers of cocoa and vanilla and spicy herbiness. It's highly invigorating and addicting.

My dear friends,
Over the years, you’ve all gotten to know me for my obsession with quality and service, and my dedication to our beautiful, life-filled, truly natural ingredients. It is an honor and a privilege to be entrusted with your care and I do not take this responsibility lightly.
Today, I’m writing to let you know we are temporarily ceasing sale of The Honey Mud.
Recently, we've found ourselves confronted very directly with the challenging side of what it means to be an uncompromisingly plant-based, natural brand. Working with the world’s freshest, direct-sourced, food-grade ingredients in their least processed and most potent state is our foundation and with this comes both the benefit of these live enzymes and rich nutrient activity, as well as the potential for this "activity" to result in rare instances of bloom or mild fermentation - the same as that can happen in any fresh, organic food. We have now observed this occurrence within certain batches of The Honey Mud in our lab, which brings us to this conversation.
We are investigating a theory that previously undetected, dormant microbes within clay can be brought to life when fed with the nourishment of our raw honey. We are implementing additional pre-screens on “inert” individual ingredients like clay to further expand our visibility into the invisible. Further, I am exploring subtle variations on this unique formula, dreaming of ways to make it not only more stable, but even more extraordinary and beautiful for the skin.
I realize that for many of you, The Honey Mud is a part of your treasured daily ritual, as it is for me. It breaks my heart to not be able to share this for some undefined period of time and I know some will be upset as there is no opportunity to stock up. As much as I want you to have this special treat in your world, I want more to be always worthy of your trust.
Stability, the "nature of nature", and what happens when something goes wrong is an important conversation that is often skipped over, but is vital to this community's understanding around natural formulation and the ongoing trials that come with it. My commitment to always embrace an open conversation with you has never been stronger and this moment will no doubt provide a catalyst for even greater innovation within our in-house production team and the work we do. The Honey Mud will be back and will be more glorious than ever before! :)
I'll be in touch as we progress and have news on an updated version of The Honey Mud's availability, but know that my responsibility and priority is to proceed with my research, reformulation, and testing with thoughtfulness and thoroughness, and not necessarily speed.
I welcome any questions. It is always important to me to be an open book, and no subject is dearer to my heart than that of our precious fresh ingredients and the dedicated loving care of YOU.
With love always,
