- "This face mask makes your skin soft and smooth. It helps unclog pores and it has a good smell! I would recommend to anyone with sensitive skin who wants a good, refreshing facial mask. Just make sure to moisturize after using. 5/5" in 277 reviews
Though I've graduated to other masks and my cystic acne is near to almost gone, I'm still loyal to it and reach for it whenever I have a really bad breakout cause it never lets me down. I know I'm getting results when I put it on. Just nothing compares to that cooling sensation you get from this mask. Even some expensive masks I own just don't do what this one does for half the price. It's why I highly recommend this mask for those who suffer from any stage of acne, esp. severe and cystic, because it doesn't b.s. around formula and price wise, and you will feel relief and even see results of your acne lessening.
Only con is the product can be messy in the tube and can be a bit difficult to get out. I've gotten a mask spatula to solve the first issue, but it can get a little stiff to push out due to it's thickness. I've been purchasing it for so long that I was pleased to see at my local Sally's they've now put it in a little plastic jar so when my current tube is finished I'll def. look into getting the jar.
This mask excels at oil control. Spreading this over the oilier parts of my face, you can see the kaolin clay drawing up the oil from my pores. It has a very refreshing, minty scent, and is very relaxing. I love the cooling sensation it provides to my skin. Despite the mask being formulated for oil control, it provides some moisture back into the skin in exchange for drawing out the nasty grease.
Even after this product dries, which is pretty quickly, it doesn't feel stiff or uncomfortable. It doesn't peel off or flake. You can rinse with any temperature water, but I feel the cooling sensation is preserved by using comfortably cool water to rinse the mask off. I've not experienced any irritation or over-drying from leaving the mask on too long. It's a pretty potent product, so once or twice a week is plenty for moderately oily skin. I recommend this to my friends with oily skin, and though my skin is drier now, I miss using this mask!
This mask always leaves my skin feeling smooth and de-gunked. I typically use it while I’m in the shower but also enjoy using it while watching tv on the weekend so that it can really sit and do it’s job. This mask is incredibly for the price and will forever be a staple in my skincare routine!
I have clear skin now but I love love love this mask for a refreshing treat. The mint is pretty strong but the clay really makes my pores feel clean and less noticeably visible.
Like other clay masks, do NOT let this dry completely on your face or you’ll have to scrub it off. Remove with a warm damp washcloth when it’s about 80% dry, and gently wipe instead of rubbing or pulling your skin :)
