*Disclosure: This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zakia’s Morocco for BrandBacker. I received Zakia’s Morocco Moroccan Ghassoul Clay Powder free of charge for my honest review. All opinions are 100% mine.
Every woman likes to be pampered and be at their best. That’s why I have to talk to you about a product that was brought to my attention by BrandBacker. I was asked to try Zakia’s Moroccan Ghassoul Clay and I can tell you that I was very pleased with the result.
About the product
Presented as a powder that you have to reconstitute with some water, the mask is not only good for your face, but also for your hair and body. According to Zakia’s website, this weekly mask claims to be the perfect product to cleanse, detoxify, tone as well as rejuvenate your skin.
This clay is made with 100% natural and organic clay from deep inside the Ancient Atlas Mountains of Morocco which has anti-aging properties. The mineral rich, light brown clay comes in a transparent 8 oz./225 g plastic jar.
My experience with the product
I received my product last Monday and I tried it twice this week. I was happily surprised about the size of the jar. I also received a letter from Zakia, the co-founder herself with a “how-to” guide for the facial mask, the hair mask and the full body mask.
I have sensitive skin so I never know how my skin will react to a new product. At first, I tried it on a small spot on my face and everything went well so I applied it on my entire face. It felt as if I was applying a soft silky mousse.
To produce the clay, the instructions say that you should mix one large tablespoon of the powder with approximately 5 tablespoons and that you have to get a thin cookie dough consistency.
I was a little reluctant about using 5 tablespoons so I started with 2 tablespoons and personally, I thought it was enough. Check out below how the mixture turned out:
I felt like my skin was tighter and smoother. I have oily skin, so my pores tend to enlarge, so I was very pleased to see that my pores were much tighter after I rinsed the mask.
Since you only have to use a tablespoon of the powder, your jar will last you a long time. And at one mask per week, you’ll have enough for over 30 weeks. So at 19.99$, it’s a real bargain. Moreover, shipping is free when you purchase for 99$ and more.
Overall, I really liked my experience with Zakia’s Moroccan Ghassoul Clay. Usually, I prefer the ready-made masks, but this mixture wasn’t too complicated to prepare. I didn’t try the hair mask, but I plan on trying it very soon.
If you like clay masks and need a good detoxifying mask, it would be a good choice for you. Furthermore, Zakia’s Moroccan Ghassoul clay mask is suitable for all types of skin, is free of PEGs, Parabens and Mineral oils and none of Zakia’s products are tested on animals.
