I'm always excited to review new beauty products, because I'm pretty much a beauty product junkie, and this blog enables me. I also love DIY, so when I received Moroccan Ghassoul Clay Mask Powder instead of just a mask like I was expecting, I was extra excited! The clay can not only be used for a face mask, but also a body mask, hair mask, and deep cleaning shampoo.
For review purposes, I decided to try out the face mask and the deep cleaning shampoo.
- FACE MASK -
To make the face mask, you mix one generous table spoon of the clay with five tablespoons of water. I did something wrong, and mine was a little too runny. I also ended up making wayyy too much.
The application was slightly messy, but this was my fault since my product was a little runnier than it should have been. (Instructions say that it should be the same consistency as cookie dough!) Also, LOL at me trying to get another day out of my hair and only pulling it half back. When you use this mask, I highly recommend a top knot. Bonus points for an athletic head band.
The mask dries quickly, and your face gets extra stiff. (I spent the ten minutes of mask time sending creepy, emotionless snap chats. If you follow me on snapchat, you are so welcome.)
Also, this really cool thing happens that as the mask dries, you can see your pores! I am going to take that as a really good sign!
In comparison to other mud or clay masks that I have tried, this one was super easy to remove. It took me less than two minutes, and probably would have taken even less time if I wasn't so set on not pulling all of my hair back. The clay just melted right off; I didn't need a wash cloth or anything!
I always like to check my skin immediately after a mask, just to see if there's any instant magic! With the Ghassoul clay mask, my skin absolutely glowed. (I also didn't wear makeup the next day because my natural skin looked so great! That's reason enough in my mind to buy this stuff!) My skin was sooo soft, like a baby's skin. It also brought the pimples on my face to surface. If you deal with cystic acne, you know how amazing that is!
In order to offer you a thorough review, I also used the Moroccan Clay Mask as a deep cleansing shampoo!
All that you have to do is mix equal parts shampoo and Ghassoul powder. (I recommend putting the powder in your hand first. I did it the other way, and I made a little mess! I also recommend putting the amount of powder that you will use into a little bathroom cup or even a shot glass, so that you're not touching the container of Ghassoul powder with wet hands.)
I definitely noticed a difference in my hair before and after using the shampoo! I found it to be more effective than a clarifying shampoo. My favorite thing about the product, though, is that after using it a shampoo and conditioning, I went to bed with wet hair. When I woke up, my hair had this great, wavy texture throughout it, and also had more volume than usual! I will definitely be using this a few times a week.
So my final thoughts? Highly recommend. I really don't think that I have a single complaint about this product. In fact, I'm really excited to order their Rejuvenating Clay Mask next.
