Clay has long been noted for its ability to draw out impurities from the skin, but recent formulations have found a host of other uses, between oil-control, refreshing your hair color, and purifying your skin. Here is V's pick of the top three clay-based products to add to your arsenal.

Christophe Robin recently unveiled a Rassoul clay paste to use as a mask for your hair: boasting volumizing benefits (alongside enhancing hair color and thickening lengths), it’s a game changer for the thin or fine-haired types, but is a great weekly mask for any hair type. It's easy to use and has a lovely rose fragrance: in lieu of shampoo, massage the cleansing paste into your scalp, add water, emulsify and rinse.

Fresh’s Umbrian Clay line recently got a revamp with a chic hand-painted jar for their clay facial mask, but don’t be fooled into thinking the line stops there: for oilier skin types, the oil-free lotion is the perfect morning moisturizer to lightly mattify skin, prepping it nicely for makeup. Paired with the Purifying Treatment Bar, the entire line is a blessing for anyone with acne concerns.

For the ultimate clay mask treatment, Chantecaille’s Detox Clay Mask is a luxurious experience, without the uncomfortable tightening sensation most clay masks bring. Instead, the rosemary and honey-infused mask combined with Kaolin clay nourishes and purifies skin without any drying, leaving skin fresh and luminous.
