Not fine enough, scratches skin

By Sheila

Comments about Rainbow Research French Green Clay Powder, 8 oz:

It's been about a year since I bought this so maybe they've changed it, but the clay is not fine enough. There are big particles that feel a bit sandy and after using it my face is red for a day or so. I tried patting gently with a wet wash cloth when I removed it (instead of wiping it off), but it still irritated my face. I may try putting it through a fine sieve. If that doesn't work I might make a watery slurry and put that through a metal mesh coffee filter, then let it dry out before mixing it with water again. Or maybe I'll just toss it. I've never had a problem with other clays, including one that was in powder form.

Comments about Rainbow Research French Green Clay Powder, 8 oz:

This mask is great for people with sensitive skin. I have oily skin this mask didn't do much to tame my oily skin and to clean out my pores. I use this mask almost everyday coz it's so gentle and doesn't burn my face off like others I have tried. I mix this mask with lemon juice, water and honey when I wash it off my face is clean and feels soft but as I said it didn't clean my pores that well. But I think this mask will be so great for people with less oily skin.

Comments about Rainbow Research French Green Clay Powder, 8 oz:

I use the product typically to spot treat. Like other reviewers have mentioned, with water alone, it can be drying, but for a spot treatment on a blemish, this is the right idea. It does a great job of drawing out all the oil and cleaning out the pore and tightening the skin.

If I'm using it as an all-over mask, I will mix the clay and water with a few drops of tea tree oil and this usually does the trick. It makes it more moisturizing AND makes it easier to remove.

I prefer this powdered mask to the premixed variety because I find that premixed masks tend to dry out in the container after a while. I will be able to use this jar until it is completely finished!

    Comments about Rainbow Research French Green Clay Powder, 8 oz:

    One ingredient, multi-purpose. I always look for natural remedies vs. lab-produced products, and this stuff is simply amazing! It is now a staple product in my home for first-aid, as well as regular beauty regimen.

    I use it 1-2 x per week to clear my pores and prevent any breakouts. I am more confident, as a woman who prefers not to wear foundation, ever, that my skin looks as fresh and clean in natural light and up close, as it does indoors and from a distance.

    Mixed with water alone, it can be drying, so I mix with ingredients from my kitchen and refrigerator to achieve desired moisturizing and healing effects. You can find examples of these types of ingredients online.

    I have also used on abrasions and insect bites on my arm or leg to dry out, and/or moisturize, speeding healing.

    Comments about Rainbow Research French Green Clay Powder, 8 oz:

    I bought this to supplement a more expensive powder. The one i have is all natural and also has all sorts of botanicals added. I used one spoonful each. I noticed that is seemed to work better like that so i decided to give the Rainbow Research Powder a try and low and behold it works waaay better than the expesive stuff. It's really good for oily skin and large pores. The only thing is to be sur not to mix it too thick. It's hard to get off and that can irritate sensitive skin.

      Comments about Rainbow Research French Green Clay Powder, 8 oz:

      This is a great value for french green clay. It is a very fine powder and is really nice. I just add a bit of water to a small amount of powder until it is the consistency I want and I have a great mask that is way cheaper than the kind you buy in a tube, plus there are no additives. This works great for getting rid of cystic acne breakouts. Sometimes, I will do a full facial mask once a day if I need it, or other times, I just spot treat.
