Sea Clay Face Mask. Since this mask contains plenty of clay, it has a really nice thick texture. It drys on your skin after about 10 to 15 mins which gives you the classic "dry" clay mask feeling. If you have more normal or combination skin, The Soap Queen recommends decreasing the amount of sea clay to 1-2 ounces. But it will take a little long to dry on the skin. She also recommends if you have extremely sensitive skin, having tea tree essential oil for 10-15 mins could be a little irratitatng.
