Wouldn't that be very abrasive? Unless of course it's not like the type of kitty litter we use for our cat. We use the clumping litter that looks like gravel. I would never use it on my face.

I'm with violetanne - I can't imagine this to be worth it even if there were some grain of truth to it (no pun intended). Stick to kaolin or bentonite clay from a health food store if you're into DIY clay masks.

Sounds very gritty to me. Rolling Eyes
And then of course you follow up with Catnip Toner.
Not doing this one.

just curious, b/c i have some 4 my kitten.
it' 100% natural clay, and i found a website that said that u can use it as a beauty treatment**(com)
wisebread.(^^^U know wut gooes here!^)/really-great-uses-for-kitty-litter

......"As a Beauty Treatment":

Make your own clay mask (think spa treatment) with an all-natural, 100-percent clay cat litter that is scent-free. Mix three tablespoons of cat litter with about three tablespoons of water, then mix with a mortar and pestle. This is a great detoxifier as well.

Seriously - buy bentonite or kaolin clay instead. You have no way of knowing which brand of cat litter contains the clay this website was referring to, and it's one of those products that doesn't require full disclosure of ingredients, so there may be all sorts of gunk even in the so-called "natural" brands. You'll be SO much better off just buying real clay, and it's not that expensive! Sorry to bust out my Inner Mom, but I'm worried about your skin (not to mention your cat!)

I'm with ginnielizz and the others on this one. It's bad enough what companies put in cat food; I can't imagine what goes in litter. Besides, ew!

I just googled kitty litter mask and you wouldn't believe the hits I got. Some people just mix it with water, some add oil, some strain it to remove the grit and some grind it in a blender. They all swear it works great. But I'll still be sticking with my Dr Hauschka clay mask, thank you very much. Smile

Eew, I'm not one to go blindly with the crowd unless the crowd is right. Kitty litter on my face, no way! If money is an issue, you can purchase 100% bentonite clay [fantastic for cleansing pores!] at your healthfood store. The brand is Aztec Secrets and the clay comes from Death Valley, CA. I paid less than $10 USD for 16 oz. of dried clay and it has lasted me forever!

The cat litter my babies use, costs more than that Laughing

Back on topic, I can't picture it being useful nor convenient to use it for facials.

I found that disturbing too.

For a good clay mask, I recommend the Clay-Neem Treatment by Earth to Body.

Some of the litter is treated with antibacterial
products and fragrances to mask odors. Really, there is a time and place to save money and stuff that isnt supposed to be going on the face should stay away!

that was my reaction too! Shock

Maybe someone put it out there as a prank? I have a hard time scooping kitty litter everyday for my cat, I don't think any amount of savings could ever entice me to use kitty litter anywhere near my face! (even if it's 'clean')

Just seen the show the Doctor's I think it's on NBC and Lisa Rhianna was on (Not positive on the name spelling) .... guess what her tip was for skincare... cat litter... she said "naturally you use clean cat litter mixed with some water... and make into a paste apply to dry skin and wash off when it's dry... she claims she uses this to detoxify her skin of any impurities and claimed it made her face smooth... apparently she is a DIY skincare fanatic... has a book out I believe with some of her other recipe's in it... she also finally admitted after many years of Denials to having silicone in her nasty lips... that went horribly wrong... she has been trying to correct this for years 20 years now...

Believe it or not its an old models trick to use. They use the 100% clay kind though - which is generally cheaper than kaolin or bentonite clay and usually comes in little bags. In fact many models I used to know used to swear it was as good as an all over body treatment.

I never really went down that route when I modelled (although I did used to use the old yoghurt and sometimes fruit juices - but one that I really liked was the japanese nightingale droppings mask as well) but hey thats already been discussed on EDS before! Laughing

I have three cats and the idea of putting kitty litter on my face is disgusting. Can't you use coffee grounds or something if you want to DIY?
