The powdered clay is extremely soft and velvety. It's more finely milled than most clays I've encountered, which produces a slightly thinner consistency of mask. I usually like to mix in a couple drops each of jojoba and frankincense oils, and then just enough water to hold it all together. The mask feels cool and refreshing as you apply it and it's amazing at sucking all the gunk and oil out of your pores. In fact, one of the gross-but-awesome things about EvanHealy's mask is that you can actually see the stuff that is being pulled out of your pores as the clay absorbs it, so there's no question as to whether or not it's doing something.
After washing the mask off, my skin feels soft, clean, and refreshed. My pores look clear, any blackheads are gone, and I don't experience any redness or dry skin. I still follow up with an oil and/or moisturizer, but that's as a regular part of my routine, not because I'm feeling a desperate need to infuse as much moisture back into my skin as possible.
The Bottom Line
If you're looking for an effective clay mask that's suitable for all skin types (even sensitive!), I don't think you can do any better than EvanHealy's French Rose Clay. It's excellent at decongesting the skin and great for keeping pores clean and skin looking vibrant. Even my Mom - who is usually pretty low maintenance with her skincare - is a recent convert. The results speak for themselves and she's a fan now too!
