I like that it's easy to use and not sticky. I can sting a little, but that's how I know it's working. It doesn't dry on my skin like other masks, so that can be a little confusing when you first put it on and it still stays the same consistency. It does leave my skin sensitive to the sun after application, so make sure you wear sunscreen or you will get burned. All and all, it doesn't really clean out my pores, but it does improve the texture and tone of my skin.
