Fantastic for oily, combination and acne prone skin
I do this mask 1-2 times a week and leave on for 15 mins
It clears out my skin and gives my skin a noticeable fresh glow for a day or two.

The previous review gave the heads up where from and the many uses.

M experience :

Hair; as a mask or part of a natural cleanser, didn't work for me as I have dense, coarse hair and the volume enhancing effects are not necessary. I also felt like my hair was left with a coating.

Facial Skin; I started to use this as a cleanser, a little in my hand and mixed with water and wiped off with a face cloth, it really decongested my skin. After the first 2 uses, the tiny clogs on the nose and on my chin started to make themselves really known. I did this for roughly a week and my skin became smoother and like no blackheads.
But it did make my face dry. I would wake up with dry patches around my mouth. So I dropped my hydroxy acid serum and added a few drops of grapeseed oil to my moisture routine. And took down the applications to once a day, at night with water only in the morning. Still not perfect but my skin texture was amazing and I noticed a brightening effect.

2 months later the weather changed to winter, the heating is up, dehydration is up. However using this clay as a cleanser, my skin is tolerating just plain oils on my face well and the amount of products used on my face has reduced. Yeah, now I've tried to use this only every other day but that didn't work.
Then I thought it would work with a buffer, oil, on the face first (which helps with the eye make-up removal). Breakthrough!!

Now my routine is this: at night I rub about 3ml of a rosehip seed oil & grapeseed oil mix on my face and neck. Shake a little clay in hand and mix with water and rub on my face esp around nose and chin. Get in shower rinse my hands and add a little more water to my skin. Do the rest of my shower bits, don't let the clay dry on my skin. Then using a face cloth I'll wipe/rinse my face, I'll use a pea sized blob of aloe vera gel over my face and neck, add 3 drops of rosehip seed oil & grapeseed oil mix and that is it.
My skin is hydrated, smooth not greasy and my previous hyperpigmentation is fading.
The only reason I am giving it 4 lipsticks is due to how much modifications you have to make to make it work. Also the packaging is not bathroom friendly. But it is cheap and versatile.

Rhassoul clay (also known as rhassoul mud, rassoul, rasul, ghassoul or lavaerde) comes from the Atlas mountains of Morocco and has been used as a natural skin and hair cleanser for centuries. It contains an array of minerals that deep cleanse, exfoliate, remove excess oil, reduce size of pores, balance, purify/detoxify and nourish the skin and hair. It is also said to be antiseptic/antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory.

All this while still being very gentle, non-irritating and less drying than other clays, makes it perfect even for daily use for all skin types. It is most beneficial to problematic skin, such as acne, rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, or just generally dry/flaky/dull skin. For the hair, it increases volume, reduces oiliness and the need to wash it very often, and helps with scalp conditions such as dandruff.

How to use:
As a skin or hair cleanser, mix the clay powder with a little bit of water, apply, let it sit or massage gently for a couple of minutes and rinse off. I haven't tried it on my hair yet, but I've read that you shouldn't use conditioner afterwards, and that it's especially good for black/ethnic hair types. If you like, you can mix it up with other nourishing ingredients and use it as a deep conditioner for the hair.

As a face or body mask, you also mix it with water, but it may be a good idea to add some vegetable oil, honey or aloe vera to make it dry less quickly. Let it sit for 5-30 minutes and gently rinse off. Some sources say you shouldn't let it completely dry, so spray it with water if you want to keep it on for longer.

Personally, I use it as a face mask for my combo/acne-prone skin, and I adore it! I notice a difference right after use, as it immediately reduces redness and the amount/size of pimples. It also makes my skin soft and not dry or irritated like some other clays. I mix enough to keep in a jar for a couple of weeks, and usually add some jojoba oil, aloe vera and essential oils/plant extracts of my liking. I also use it as a spot treatment for the worst pimples.

Note: I added this product as there was no entry for "Unlisted brand" rhassoul clay, but the reviews for Mountain Rose Herbs Rhassoul Pure Cosmetic Clay, Logona Lavaerde Rhassoul Clay Powder and Urtekram African Rhassoul Clay are all for pure rhassoul clay as well, so check them out too!
