Amazing product. Brightens and lightens the skin, helps fade acne scars and eases down redness. A face mask that has become a staple item in my skincare closet.
Very creamy and luxurious kaolin mask. I always compare this to Queen Helene's Mint Julep mask because they both basically do the same thing. But the Shiseido mask is gentler and less drying (although it still gets the gunk out of my pores) and also applies more smoothly. Great product for deeper cleansing and acne control, I have been using this off and on for years. Its effectiveness and high quality make it worth the price tag.
This is a pretty nice clay mask; I use it at the end of the week or after a long day out in the polluted city. It helps with oil control and leaves my skin really smooth after I use it. Also it hasn't caused any breakouts, and a little bit goes a long way so this tube will last me ages.
If you have oily skin, this is the mask for you. I have oily and sensitive skin and I bought this on a whim because there are very few clay masks on the market that don't have a whole bunch of junk in them. I wasn't expecting a lot but it did a really good job. I steam my face and then put the mask on and well as using it just after washing the face and it worked really well. It's really expensive in Canada but I have to say, you only need a little and it lasted me well over a year. It really is worth a try.
This is my favorite mask! It is non drying and doesn't make my skin feel tight like other clay masks. Instead, my skin feels soft and renewed after using this product. It has helped with clearing up my pores and blackheads, and clears up any acne that is there on my skin or coming up. Love it!
I have combination skin which is kinda dry in the winter but still oily in the T-zone. This works so well removing all the gunk but yet doesn't dry out my skin. Note won't work well for oily skin as I get oily in the summer so do anything.
I've been buying this for about 10 years now. I don't use it as a mask (it's not a bad mask either) but instead use it to repair blemishes or black heads. It doesn't really make your acne go away, but after you breakout, this does a great job of repairing the skin quickly and lightens the resulting hyperpigmentation.
Once again, I would like to say that it's a very good mask, but this is my secret weapon for healing blemishes quickly so that I can resume my regular skin routine.
I use this mask once a week and I love it! Although it doesn't really do anything for my pimples and blackheads, but it makes my skin whiter and smoother. My face feels nice and fresh whenever I wash it ff after 15 minutes. This clay mask has improved my skin and I've been using this for months now! :D
I'll start by saying that I don't have many other masks to compare this one too, but this one did exactly what I thought it would do and what I wanted it to do: it brought to the surface all of the crap in my pores. I then took a warm washcloth and wiped away all of that nasty stuff. It even dislodged this stubborn little...I don't know what it was, some kind of deep blackhead that wouldn't budge. But when I wiped away the mask it was half gone and a little pressure removed it. I was impressed.
It's pretty gentle. It didn't dry out my skin. And it doesn't really harden like the Queen Helen's Mint Julep Mask which is actually kind of nice...
I got this as gift from a very nice SA and I absolutely adore this mask. I've been using acne.org's regimen to clear up my acne problems, and now that my skin is blemish free, I was looking for other skincare products to boost my skin texture and etc and found this to be great for reducing my pores, diminishing acne scarring and just brightening up my face in general. Definitely worth $30 imo. I'll repurchase when my gift runs out.
