I really enjoy this as a mask! I don't use this as a cleanser at all, I only use it as a mask. I use it whenever I have breakouts about two times a week. It does not completely get rid of my breakouts, but it helps them to shrink in size and appear less red. My face feels very clean after using this as well. If you have ever used a clay or charcoal mask, you know that they can sometimes be hard to remove. For this reason, I like that it is also a cleanser. After it dries and you go to wash it off, it melts right off once you get it wet. The first time I opened it, the scent reminded me of a cleaning product you would use in your bathroom or kitchen which was a bit offputting and made me not want to put it on my face. However, after using it and seeing how much I enjoy the mask, the scent no longer bothers me.
