This clay mask is very gentle on my skin like the rest of the Chantecaille products I've tried, so I really appreciate that. However, I don't find it to be very detoxifying. I apply it all over my face and leave it on for about 30 minutes. This product doesn't dry up like most detoxifying masks do, which is fine with me, but the reason why I'm not in love with it is because it creates such a mess when I try to wash it off. It doesn't come off easily with my hands, so I've tried using a wash cloth, but it turns the entire wash cloth black. It does leave my skin feeling soft and soothed, but for the price tag, I won't be repurchasing.
