I have oily skin I tried this with the recommended lavender oil and substituted almond oil for jojoba oil which I didn’t have. I also have sensitive skin it felt tingly while it was on, when I washed it off, my face was bright red and burning didn’t feel like tackling the cold to cut an aloe leaf so I applied a squirt of Argan oil to my face. It’s cooling down a bit. What I like so far about this mask is that it not only washed immediately out of the wash cloth I was using, but left it feeling super soft. The other clay masks I’ve tried like queen Helene have ruined wash clothes I’ve used. So I’m convinced this is better for my skin on that basis alone at the moment, will see what happens with my face going forward
Im a FAN
The first time I used this, after completely rinsing it out, I thought: meh, It’s fine. I mean, my skin was smooth and all but I didnt see anything wowing me. I tend to get a bunch of tiny blackheads around my nose, and on my left cheek I had like a couple of pores that were too big and clogged with whiteheads and blackheads and even some zits… You get the picture. Not pretty. So right after when I just noticed that there was minor cleaning and softness I was somewhat dissapointed.But magically, after days of not using this, but just keeping my daily routine of oatmeal soap, tonic and moisturizer, The pores and the zits started to get smaller and the blackheads on my nose to dissapear. You could say that it was because of my routine and not because of this Clay. But man, I’ve been using the same routine since forever and nothing had changed like it did now. So I think the real effects start showing after a while.Im still using the clay mask once a week plus my daily routine and im been doing great.
I don’t always use face masks, as some of the ones I used in the past irritated my skin. I decided to give this one a shot, because it is all natural, and I can add oils and other thing to it and customize it to my own skin. I added a small amount of aloe vera gel and coconut oil to this powder and adjusted the amount of water I added. I had great results! Since I added the moisturizing ingredients, it didn’t dry my face out, and it shrunk my pores and made my skin look amazing! My husband was also impressed. I showed him how great my skin looked, and he agreed. He said it looked like I had foundation or powder on, because it seemed to even my skin tone so well! I will continue to use this mask once or twice a week, and although the jar seems small, with the small amount I need it should last a while. I will definitely recommend this to family & friends, and repurchase in the future! 🙂
Great for oily and/or rough skin
I absolutely love this powdered clay! The powder has no scent, it’s all natural, and it’s easy to use. Unlike other clay masks, this works best when you add equal portions of water and powder. You may want to use 1.5 tablespoons if you want to get a thicker consistency to the mask; this will also reduce cracking. After 10-15min on your face, the mask will gently tug at your skin as it dries — you may also feel itchiness in areas where the mask is cracking (so try to make a mask with a thicker consistency). The clay washes off pretty easily, I used a facial sponge to help me but it definitely was not needed.This product is probably best for individuals with oily and/or rough skin. It definitely exfoliates your skin, smooths over rough patches and gives you a brighter appearance. I was quite shocked at how soft and bright my face looked after using this mask. You definitely should use a good moisturizer or hydrating toner after using this (just to bring back balance to your skin).
Fantastic Green Clay
I received this quickly. I made a face mask with this powder and distilled water, left on for 20 minutes and rinsed off. It doesn’t take much quantity to cover your entire face and the results are very nice. It was easy to apply and easy to rinse off.Also, my husband hurt his finger doing yard work so I made a poultice with this clay, powdered mustard and apple cider vinegar. He kept his finger wrapped in it for 15 minutes and was amazed how quickly it took the soreness away.I also used the clay powder as an ingredient in homemade mineral veil (clay powder, arrowroot powder and cocoa powder) and it works nicely for that as well. I’m very pleased with this product and will definitely order it again.
Strong and worth the price!
I really enjoy this product! However, even with greasy skin (you could cook a chicken with my face at the end of the day…), this does dry our my skin the day after I use it. I just used some tea tree oil with my mix, and it’s awesome!
Left my pores very clean!
This works really well. Left my pores very clean. I could actually tell a difference in my nose. Just know it will come off your face in large chunks when removing the mask. I did not expect that and had a nice mess to clean in my bathroom sink. I suggest wiping your face off with a washcloth over a towel or trashcan. Large pieces!
Feel good clay powder:)
I purchased this European Clay Powder on 6/15/12 and received it today, 6/20/12. I used it and I let it stay on my face for approximately 10 min. After I washed and rinsed my face, it felt sooo good. This was my first time using a face mask. I will definitely by purchasing this again before I run out.
I am giving this product 5 stars because you are getting a lot for your money and it does exactly what it claims and thats purifies the skin and leaves it soft and smooth. I did my research on this product before purchasing and was pleasantly suprised. It does have a long shelf life so this is something that you will have for a while. It does tighten up on the skin to draw the impurities out so just know that it can be a little uncomfortable when it starts to dry around the 15 minute mark however you can leave the mask on as long as you would like. You are to remoisturize your skin after use because it leaves the skin dry.Well worth the money.
