I love mud masks.  Possibly due to being able to play with mud and play with my face as it dries and cracks.  Also I love how my face feels afterwards.  I got this Moroccan Ghassoul Clay Powder to try out and review.  I like that this is in powder form so you can make as much as you need and it is lighter.  This 250 ml jar in powder form will make twice the volume of the jar.  
I did try out the mud recipe as the instructions asked 5:1 water to powder to make the mud.  This Did Not Work.  Well it made brown water... I adjusted a couple times and then found the correct mix.  For mud to cover 1 face mix 1/2 Tablespoon warm water with 1 large Tablespoon of clay powder.  You get a nice thick pudding like consistency.  Then you simply smooth it over your face.  I liked how this mud mask feels.  It reminds me of the great silty mud that you used to love to dig your toes into in creeks.  Very smooth and easy to apply.  I love that this mask does not tingle or sting.  I am not sure why a lot of masks lately feel that they must attack my face in order to work.  You wait until it dries and then gently wash off with a washcloth.  I did this and then added my normal moisturizer.  I did notice a bit of redness on my forehead and a couple places around my face.  This was mentioned as a possibility in the how to guide.  It also may be due to me making a lot of 'Hulk Smash' faces to crack up the dried mud.  
The information about this mask also says you can use the mud as  a hair mask or even add a 1:1 ratio to your normal shampoo.  I am not sure that I need to do that with my hair.  Maybe for oilier hair and scalps.
