Deep in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, picks and axes are hard at work to mine a naturally occurring clay. Whats so special about this clay you ask? This 100% pure , natural clay by Zakia's Morocco is absolutely fabulous for both hair and skin. I have to say when I opened the jar of the finley powdered clay, I was reminded of my daughter’s chinchillas who take routinely dust baths and if you have ever touched a chinchillas fur will know that they have the softest fur ever!
As I mentioned this product is send in powder form and you will need to mix about one large tablespoon of the powder with some luke warm water. The ration should be 1:5 (1 tablespoon clay powder and 5 tablespoons water). Mix until a smooth, silky paste forms. Then apply it to your face, grab a magazine and just relax for the next 10 minutes. Since I had to mix up just a bit more powder to take photos for this post, yours truly is wearing the mask on her face as she is typing. :)
Anyhow, this mask does not have to stay on until it is dry, actually it might get a bit more difficult to remove if it dries. You will immediately feel a tightening of the skin. The Ghassoul absorbs excess oil, removes facial impurities, particularly blackheads. I love how it feels as it dries! You might notice your skin being a bit red after you wash off the mask with luke warm water. I am not sure why that is, but the redness goes away in a few minutes.
The powder has no odor and is super fine and easy to mix and apply.
I had mentioned that you can use the clay for hair as well. To remove excess oil and product built up from your hair, mix equal amount of your favorite shampoo and powder in the palm of your hand and apply to wet hair. Leave the mixture in for about 5-10 minutes and then shampoo as normal. Follow with a rinse. Ghassouls clay treats split ends and improves the health of your scalp.Moroccan Black Soap with Eucalyptus and Kessa Exfoliating Glove $18.99 $39.99 Zakia's Morocco
