    What's your choice and why?

    It depends on the look you are going for. Clays tend to be more muted in color and your color choices are much more limited, whereas micas are usually more vibrant and there are tons of colors/shades to choose from. Clays are cheaper than micas. Clays also have beneficial properties (great for oily skin, providing 'slip' for a shaving bar, etc.) I use both.

    Sara,
    Do you purchase your clays and micas at the same place. Which seller do you prefer?

    I think I purchased some emu oil from alternasense. Really good service.
    Thanks for the info.

    Does any company sell a sampler pack of different colored micas or oxides? I would love to try some but haven't been able to locate a sampler pack.

    Thanks

    I know that RJ does, but she is closed temporarily due to the death of her granddaughter.
