I wasn't meaning to get a drugstore mask. But after reading all these positive reviews and being pleased with this brand, I gave it a go. I was at first surprised by the size of the product. For the price, I had expected more product. And the mixture seemed pretty runny in the tube.
However, after use, I can easily say that this is a great deal. The mask contains natural oceanic clay with plant extracts. You must shake the tube before application. The mask dries fairly quickly and may be washed off in 10-20 minutes. It definitely tightens your pores and removes impurities.
I will definitely repurchase. I got it on sale for $7.98. I believe that it usually retails for $9. I like that this contains naturally active ingredients, while not having to mix it up like Aztec Clay mask.
I actually ran into this on accident. I have been battling blackheads my whole life. I don't really have acne problems anymore, blackheads are the only stubborn things I still fight. I bought this mask just because I wanted to relax one day, and thought I would give myself a mini spa treatment (paint toes, wear a face mask, etc.) So I bought this mask at target and used it. To my amazement, when it dried, there were dark spots on all of my trouble areas (t zone, especially my nose). When I rinsed the mask off, my blackheads were all but gone! I'm glad I stumbled upon this product, it is amazing.
This made my skin feel amazing! So weird how it made little dark spots above my blackheads and other problem areas. Washed off easily and skin felt smooth and refreshed.
Excellent mask for the price. After using this my skin is smooth and clear. I only use it on my t-zone as I have combo skin- it's not too drying but I don't need it elsewhere. As other reviewers have said, shake it before every use or it will separate. Also not overly keen on the smell, it's not strong but smells a bit of dirt. Otherwise a perfect product.
Best clay mask in drugstores. It feels great on your skin and really does what it advertises. My pores look smaller and I'm less oily. Used it once every two week and my skin just looks glowing afterwards.
This is a brilliant product! I am so glad I was recommended this while on my search for different clay masks. The consistency is fairly runny, you must shake the bottle before every use. But it is easy application, and it does dry rather quick. You could feel the mask tighten on your skin immediately. So you know once you wash the mask off, all your pores are tightened!
-Pulls out impurities and oils within your pores. During the drying duration, like every other review mentioned it really does drag out the oils and dirt in your pore areas that are troubled. It will look like a dark, green spot upon the pore.
-Leaves your face feeling refresh, conditioned, and clean afterwards.
-Natural ingredients! Love
-None really, except the runny consistency I would say. But it doesn't bother me, since it's extremely easy to wash off.
Will re-purchase. The price is reasonable and the product is effective. One of my favorite drugstore products!
Love!!! You can actually see the stuff it pulls out as it dries. When it dries, there are black dots (from blackheads) and all sorts of other stuff that comes out! It's amazing. Miracle worker!
I have oily/combo, acne prone skin. I need a mask that will draw out dirt, oil and impurities without breaking me out more.
(IM SORRY FOR THE TMI IN ADVANCE) With this mask I literally see the dots, and sometimes (alarming) huge pools of oil that this mask draws out. After I rinse this mask, my skin isn't sucked parching dry, just dried out how I imagine normal skinned people feel. However I know it works.
Overall: This hasn't cured my acne, nothing that rinses away will do that. I do like my other clay masks (mainly Aztec), but of all my masks I feel this is the most effective at drawing out oil. Yes the texture is liquidy which I wish it wasn't, but shake it up really well, and layer a few layers and you'll get great results!
My skin is left "dried" out to normal oil levels, and calmed. The mask also doesn't hurt so I can carry on doing housework and other activities.
I really liked this product at first. It was very satisfying to see how much oil it was sucking out of my pores in my t-zone. I decided to only use it on my t-zone because it would have been too drying on the other parts of my face. I stopped using it when I had an allergic reaction to a different product because my skin was in no condition for any kind of mask at the time. I also don't really like the smell of this mask, so I might switch back to the Fresh Umbrage Mask before using this one again.
I LOVE this mask. You can literally see the oils that are pulled out of your pores when the mask dries. My skin looks and feels smooth and brighter after I use this. I use it 2-3 times a week. It dries very quick and I only leave it on for about 20 minutes. The only thing I don't like about this mask is the consistency is kind of watery. I will continue to buy this product as long as they keep making it though!
