This clay mask has a smooth, almost creamy texture that spreads over the skin easily. Zakia's Ghassoul Clay Mask dries very quickly - its dry as a bone in five minutes or less! You can rinse it off as soon as you'd like, Zakia recommends 10-20 minutes, I leave it on for about 12. Rinsing is really interesting, the clay balls up and falls off instead of getting rinsed away cleanly - its weird and you'll probably need to clean your drain if you want to avoid a clog! The Moroccan Ghassoul Clay Mask feels quite tightening while its on - I thought it was going to be too drying, but I couldn't have been more wrong - this all natural mask gives me lovely results! The Ghassoul clay based mask leavess my skin feeling extremely soft and smooth, firmer and bouncier, with tighter pores and reduced redness. This mask also absorbs just the right amount of oil, and never leaves my complexion arid or tight. I know I just made fun of this product's description because it makes Zakia's Ghassoul Clay Mask sound like the perfect product, but honestly it kinda is! Zakia says this mask can be used everyday if you'd like, and I agree - I started off using it once a week like I would with most clay masks, but I've used it for five days straight and my skin looks and feels great, so I have no intention of stopping.
Apparently, you can use this clay mask in your hair as well, but I haven't tried it and I don't plan on it - my hair is just so thick, I feel like I could never get all of it out! I can say that I've applied it over my eyebrows, and they feel a little softer. Not sure if the results would be the same for the rest of my hair though.
