Rating: A very high quality clay and very well packaged. I wouldn't buy it anywhere else! A slightly larger particle size than bentonite or kaolin but still very fine.

Rating: This clay is absolutely beautiful. Non drying and works great in clay masks and as a daily cleanser.

Rating: I mix this clay with rose water and few drops of carrier oil/essential oils to make a quick daily face wash. It cleanses all the impurities and removes makeup! The best part is knowing it is an all natural face cleanser! A little goes a long way!
Rating: This product will be a staple of mine from now on. I have used it exclusively to clean my hair for more than a year. I purchased 3 kg in February of 2016 I was originally purchasing from another source) and I still have one whole kg left even though I have children who also use it and I gifted lots of it to friends and family.
I mix it with some fruit powders that I also purchased from this site and usually some peppermint or spearmint essential oil and it is really nice on my hair. This clay has not been drying to my hair as some other clay's are and it has a nice slip to it. I do not miss the lather of commercial shampoos at all. Unlike many of the other reviewers, I have not used this product for face masks. Maybe I will give that a try.
Rating: My kinky, curly hair loves Rhassoul clay so much! I used it alone as a hair treatment, or mixed in with my conditioner. Whenever I incorporate Rhassoul clay in my hair-care regime, my curls always pop, hair feels soft, and looks shiny and oh so healthy . Plus, it clears up blackheads and is super hydrating when mixed with other clay or seaweed powder for a face treatment. Thanks ND for a great product!

Rating: Most of the reviews talk about how great of a facial mask Rhassoul Clay is(which is very true) but I wanted to say how great it is for hair too. I have curly/coily hair and it really defines my hair! And it doesn't dry out my hair and it's pretty easy to wash out. I mix this clay with coconut milk and honey now and they work awesome together. So glad NDA is selling it because they sell it at a reasonable price. Will definitely buy more.

Rating: I have used it on my CP soap and it has blended very well. As a facial mask, even better. I simply mix a little bit of water and voila- mask to draws out toxins and impurities. LOVE it best as it dries faster than other clay- so I get on with my day.
Rating: Rhassoul Clay is great and affordable ! Good for face and body wash just with a bit of water. Going to add to my soaps!
AMAZING FACE MASK! I add ND Seaweed Powder to Rhassoul Clay in a 1:2 ratio and mix with Aloe Vera Juice. My face looks clean, fresh and glowing and 10-15 years younger. Not sure that I could use seaweed very often -so I make this mask once per week.
Rating: Great product, especially for mature skins. I mix it with honey, plain yogurt, some seaweed powder and couple of drops of geranium e.o. My skin feels baby soft after that mask.
By:Eva, London, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 27-Mar-2009
Rating: Used plain, this makes a mild facial mask that doesn't dry out my skin. I like making a mask using floral hydrosols - heavenly! My teenagers & I use it for spot treatment too, so it's always nearby! Fantastic price : )
By:Tawnya, Chilliwack, British Columbia

Rating: I recently purchased this clay. I used it as a face mask. It did not dry out my skin, my skin felt and looked great afterwards. I will defininety purchase again.
Rating: Love this product. It is amazing for how it cleanses deeply but gently.
Just a question though, does anyone have any ideas how to mix this clay and not get clumps. I can't seem to get the clay mask (Rhassoul Clay + Aloe Vera Gel + Organic Honey) smooth when mixing.
Any ideas or help with this is greatly appreciated.
Rating: This is a fantastic clay! It works well with all skin types and is not abrasive. I will be using this clay within my product line for years to come. Thank you for having this available!
By:Zachary, Chalk River, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Jul-2014
Rating: My face has never felt so clean. I have to buy an extra batch to sell because I want to keep the first stash that I ordered to myself. Works well alone and with extracts.
By:Nzingha, Lonndon, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 01-Jan-2015
Rating: I'm in love! I added it a bit of water and made an incredible face mask. I'm going to try adding vitamin E next time but it's so wonderful just like this. It feels so light but tightens the skin nicely and will be great for acne yet it's not drying. Thank you for this great product!! I will be buying more :)
By:Anya, Oshawa, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Jun-2015
Rating: This mask is probably the best clay I have ever used! Love this product!
Rating: I LOVE this stuff! Weather it's on it's own or mixed with other ingredients this clay is amazing. As it hardens you can feel it tightening your skin it seems to "suck" any inpurities to the surface and when you finish it with an exfoliating scrub your face and body are left feeling clean and clear.

Rating: Added it to part of a bath salt and packed them in layers. It looked great and the bath also feels great..
By:Jeyatha, Calgary, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Oct-2014
Rating: Great as a face and hair mask, leaves skin cleansed and clear and makes your hair so soft. Good price and quality.
By:Elvira, Oakville, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-Feb-2012
Rating: Fabulous for a simple face mask with just distilled water or aloe juice. Is gentle and i use it weekly.
Rating: Just received it last week and added it in my cp soap. the colour just greyish, hopefully it will do an amazing job. gonna try it with my face tonight.
By:Meya, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 17-Oct-2013
Rating: This clay from Maroc is unbelievable. I'll be ordering a TON next time as it clears, tones and sparkles the skin. I use it in the myrrh masque I created to get the dead cells off and rejuvenate the skin...with incredible results!
It's an ' I look -10 - years - younger' clay!
By:J.alexandra, Airdrie, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Jun-2006
Rating: this is what i use to cleanse my hair and i must say it does a pretty darn good job. i mix it with marshmallow root tea and its so soothing on scalp. you also dont to use a lot. a little goes a loong way. and for what you get the price is the best i have seen..
Rating: I didn't expect much from this clay at first but I was immediately blown away with the results after using it as a face mask! I have sensitive acne prone skin that is also combination and I've been using topical acne medication for mild/moderate acne. This clay when I use it as a mask (with aloe leaf gel juice) and as a cleanser has improved my skin texture after only 1 week! I had dry, flaky, overall irritated skin from my acne medication, which went away after using only this clay! I like to moisturize with jojoba after but this mask truly does not dry out the skin! If you have sensitive skin I really recommend this. Its my favorite thing to use to wash my face in the morning because it makes my skin feel clean without any tightness. I stopped using my acne medication since using this clay and my skin is still clear!
Rating: I use this in a mask with 3 other clays. It's perfect for my oily skin, leaving it soft and smooth. Great quality, great results.
By:Shawn, Thunder Bay, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Jun-2013
Rating: I chose this clay over all the others as my first to explore with, and I couldn't be happier! It's not very heavy in a mask, and it's quite fine. My skin wasn't dry after using it, the way some commercial clays seem to dry out skin. It blended very well with some of the Fruit Powder Extracts NDA offers, and using some Aloe Vera Gel Juice in place of the water really made this mask a hit with my friends and family! If you've never tried clays and desire to, give this Rhassoul Clay a try!
By:Jennifer, Calgary, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 03-Sep-2012
Rating: I recently learned about all the benefits of rhassoul clay, so when I noticed NDA's rhassoul clay was in stock, I ordered an entire kilogram! Best decision ever! I've been using this as a cleanser before bed and have noticed an amazing improvement in my skin tone! I have combination skin that can get very dry when I use clays, but this did not happen with rhassoul clay. It left my skin clean yet not stripped of its natural oils. My skin is brighter and literally glows after using this!

Rating: I couldn't be happier with this clay. As soon as I brought it home I tried it immediately with my favourite mask-mix and my skin was glowing. I can't wait to try it on my hair as my monthly cleanse
By:Elisabeth, Caledon East, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 21-Nov-2012
Rating: I used this clay as a face cleanser every other day. It even kind of foam! Great for masks as well and all sorts of things! The batch I received was very fine and clear of impurities.
By:Manon, Rawdon, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 07-Jun-2011
Rating: Very nice clay with beautiful color and works wonderful as a mask. However I have found that it does contain a fair amount of larger grain clay/rock and odd pieces of dried grass. Because of this i do have to sift it through a very fine mesh before using it.
By:Kyla, Espanola, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 13-Jan-2012
Rating: I have used this clay once so far as a mask. It is the first clay I have tried but I do love it. It has a beautiful smooth texture and colour, and no noticeable scent. As it was drying on my face, it felt like my face was turning to stone. I am not sure if I was too fond of the feeling but overall enjoyed the experience.
Rating: Ghassoul has been a staple in my beauty kit for almost 6 years now. I mix the clay with some Castille soap when my skin and hair need exfoliation and deep cleaning. My hair and skin feel like satin when I'm done. Ghassoul is amazing for drawing out impurities while simultaneously minimizing your pores. It's also my secret oil-control weapon in the Summer months ;-) I cannot live without this clay!
Rating: This clay makes an amazing mask for your HAIR, with just a bit of coconut oil or argan oil to smooth out the consistency you end up with shiny bouncy hair. Great treatment for the scalp also. Rhassoul clay is a staple hair product for me now.
Rating: This is the best clay ever! I couldn't wait to use it. I made 3 face masks and it wasn't even been a week since everything arrived. After a day at the local pool, this stuff pulls the chlorine smell out of your skin. Pure awesome!
Rating: Totally awesome! I made face mask with this clay, once a week since a month now, and my skin feel fresh, not irritated and so soft! It's perfect for sensitive skin liked mine. I just can't stop using it!
Rating: My mother had a severe case of cellulitis on her leg. This coupled with eczema. I made a mask of the Rhassoul clay let it dry for twenty minutes and used argan carrier oil after. After one week of treatments her leg has almost completely healed up. The drawing power of the clay mask and the detoxifying power of the clay pulled the residual infection out where the prescription medication that she was taking was not completely doing the job. My son also uses this as a spot remover for acne. Work like a charm with a little tea tree oil. Love this product. Can't wait to do more face masks with it.

Rating: I just love this clay! I tried it as a face mask and the results were amazing. It cleaned up my pores and left my skin soft, smooth and toned. This is definitely an excellent product and at an excellent price too!
Rating: For a mask that's reputed to have anti-aging/moisturizing qualities, I was amazed by how drying it felt. I had some feedback from my product testers saying the same thing. a lot of moisturizer afterwards helped.
Drying factor aside, my skin was absolutely glowing! Fantastic product!
By:Az, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 27-Apr-2010
Rating: This is an amaizing clay. I make my mask mixing this clay with hemp oil, neroli water and a combination of my favorite essential oils. I am very satisfied with the results and the clay. I have tried also the Zeolite clay, but Rhassoul is more suitable to my skin. I think Zeolite works better on oily skin.
By:Sorina, Ottawa, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 30-Aug-2009
Rating: This clay is AWESOME. It is the BEST firming and tightening clay that I have tried. The feeling of the clay drying on your face is as if your face is literally turning into stone. I love this stuff!
Rating: This Moroccan Clay is spectacular ! It really stimulates the circulation, exfolliates & energizes the skin, when used as a masque with other ingredients. It is one of the main components in my Biblical historical masque that my Clients love!
By:Jefa, Calgary, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Jun-2006
Rating: I love this stuff, and especially at this price! Try it as shampoo!
Rating: I love what this clay does for my skin and hair. It makes my skin soft, smooth and toned, and my hair amazingly shiny. I have tried many hair care products, including very expensive ones, but nothing has made my hair as shiny as rhassoul clay.
Rating: Rhassoul clay is an amazing product. It strenghtens the scalp, and makes the hair beautiful. Better not use it on coloured hair : it will wash out the colour. For the skin, as is, mixed with a floral water, it is very effective : closes the pores, deeply cleans and tones. It never leaves to the skin a dry feeling. This is one of the best products for all types of skin. I use it in my soaps and the results are wonderful. It does not loose its properties and gives your products an interesting colour.
By:Louise, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Feb-2006
Rating: My favorite clay of all! Excellent for facial and hair masks. I also use it in soap and have had wonderful results. It helps reduces flakiness and is not overly drying. Rhassoul is a staple on my shelf...and New Directions' price is about half of what i was previously paying for it. I am thrilled that New Directions is carrying it because i know their products are always top notch!
