Love making a natural face mask from this clay - so much better than store bought masks filled with chemicals. Very quick shipping too!

Add a few drops of water to about a teaspoon of clay and you have a wonderful face mask. Apply to the skin, let it dry for about 20 minutes then rinse off. A very "fresh"feeling. Great price too.
