Rating: This clay is my go to for minor breakouts. I have mature skin that breaks out occasionally, and this clay really helps with the zits without drying out my skin.

Rating: This makes an amazing mask for my oily skin. It really cleans out my pores. I add either papaya extract or sandalwood powder to give it a little exfoliation. I use a washcloth and scrub my face as I remove it. My skin really glows. Probably too rough for sensitive skins. Keep in mind that it will stain the washcloth.

Rating: I have oily skin with clogged pores and this product was great for me. It was strong though, so I would stay away from it if you have normal or dry skin.

Rating: I am beyond pleased with the quailtiy of this product! I used some to make a masque for my teenage brother and even he had to admit that they made his skin smooth and clear after just one application. In fact his skin looked so good that my dad let me give him a facial! lol

Rating: I used this in facial cp soap for acne. You need to dislove it in your water phase first. But It makes a nice addition and adds a brown tint to your soap.

Rating: Another great product from ND. Great for spot treatments on break outs or an all over mask. I like to add seaweed to it for masks. It leaves the skin feeling cleansed and soft.

Rating: GREAT PRODUCT!! I mixed in green tea powder, rose water and a few drops of lavender to make a mask. My pores are smaller, any pimples or redness that was on my face is gone by morning and my face has never felt so refreshed and clean! I haven't used it all yet but I've already added more to my shopping cart.

Rating: This stuff is awesome, I made facial masque with olive green clay, green tea, sandalwood water and aloe vera juice...my customers were going absolutely wild!! I had a breakout (first trimester hormones) and after two treatments with the olive green mask w/green tea ny skin is totally clear. My 15 year old son even begs me know to let him use it once a week to keep his acne at bay, LOL
This stuff is the absolute BOMB!
Rating: i've been using this clay for about 3 months now. i haven't noticed it staining my clothes, which is a relief. but the clay itself works really well to detoxify my oily and acne-prone skin. i usually add a few drops of lavender or tea tree to the clay in neroli floral water, and use it 2-3 times a week (maybe a bit too often? hehe). i still get acne on my face, but it hasn't been as bad at all.

Rating: Excellent quality clay! I add Olive Green to my CP soaps for its skin regenerative and balancing properties, as well as nice green color.

Rating: I add this clay to my soaps.. it blends well with eucalyptus and sage. I absolutely love this clay as a fask mask too with licorice root extract.

Rating: If I could, I'd give myself a green clay facial every day, but I know that once a week is the norm. This is a superb product. I add chamomile floral water and a drop of lavender to make my facials and my face looks great and feels soft and smooth. It gives a matte finish and tightens my enlarged pores. Love it.

Rating: Australian Clay - Green
I've made a mask with it, using rose floral water and a bit of jojoba oil.
After rinsing the skin is completely rejuvenated, it feels cool and fresh.
The mask balances the skin - the oily zones were moisturized and mattified,
the dry zones (cheeks) were moisturized and skin felt supple and fresh.
Green clay is truly a must have.
