Rating: Very disappointed with this clay. I used it in my soap, a recipe I had made many times before, and it seized. The color is a light brown, mud water, not pink. When I made the first test batch I thought I may have miscalculated my ingredients so I made another batch, and then a third. All with the same results! Won't be purchasing this clay again.
Rating: I bought this to color soap naturally and it works well for that. Beautiful color. Packaged nicely.

Rating: The French pink clay makes a lovely, gentle clay mask. I combine it with the Zeolite Ultra Fine clay to help with ease of removing the mask. I am not left with any staining on our faces thanks to the zeolite clay addition but it definitely does stain the washcloths used to remove it.
Rating: This fine clay makes the best mask of course, it also colors my creams and soaps beautifully and I use it as a blush and lip tint,

Rating: LOVE this clay! It leaves my skin so soft, and pores minimized but not tight. The only thing I don't like it that it does stain your skin a little pink. You really gotta scrub it off. I used toner over my face twice and was still getting lots of pink coming off.

By:Yulia, North York, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I use French Pink Clay made CP soap. Soaps had nice pink. It 's very beautiful and romantic color.
Rating: I have used the French Clay several times, as it is a favorite amongst many of my facial clients.
I use it on almost any skin type with a wide variety of skin ailments, especially my acne prone clientelle. They love the soothing and tightening effect the clay has as a mud mask. Acne has been cleared up approximately 30% in a 1st treatment on many of my younger clients. It is easy to mix into a facial paste, easy to apply and quite easy to remove.
I reccommend this clay! Two thumbs up from me and my client base.

Rating: very nice soothing clay. i mixed it with some camomille extract and lavender, and cherry kernal oil as a scrub/mask for my face
Rating: I use this clay primarily for the light peach/pink colour it gives to CP soap, but it also adds a nice silky glide to the finished bar. Great for shaving soap.
