Basically this is a clay mask with whitening properties. I can sort of smell the clay in it but it has been largely masked by the overwhelming signature laneige fragrance. It comes in a small plastic tube similar to macdonalds margarines except it is opaque in color. Very unhygienic if you're using it more than once, although the retailed one contains a spatula. Despite the clay in it, it did not subside the giant pimple on my forehead visibly, unlike the cheap ol Garnier 3-in1 clay mask I've been using. There's some visible whitening after using it immediately, though it seems to fade the next day. Not really a stellar product, although the texture is amazingly smooth.
Claims: This is latest product from Laneige in Whitening range, has the properties of papain enzymes to exfoliate dead skin cells and marine fiber adhesive to heavy metal and oxidised sebum with whitening properties.
Performance: My skin is heavily clogged with oxidised sebum and i have a serious breakouts last time made my skin full of dark spots. It would be good for me if it really work to exfoliate and purify my damaged skin. After usage my skin is slightly brightened and skin feels soft. The purifying effect is moderate because my acne problem is still there. I guess it may need to be used a several time to totally remove the clogged craps in pores.
Texture: The texture is clay like, non watery at all, and glide smoothly. It is not tightening like normal clay mask which i dont really like because i skin will feel dry and damaged. I saw from a blog review saying it needed to be massage for 30 second and leave for 15-20 mins. After that massage again with water to melt the mask.
Scent: Lightly scented
Packaging: It comes in 8 small plastic jar with 10 g. It cannot be resealed. One jar can be used up to 3-4 times. Comes with spatula.
Worthiness: The price is about USD 40 which is quite reasonable providing it can be used 24-32 times. Since the effect is moderate I can't really recommend the mask. The thing I like about it is the texture and scent.
