I am on my second tube. This stuff absorbs oil super well. I use it whenever I feel my face is getting too oily. The downside is it gets my skin too dry sometimes. It does not get rid of blackhead or acne, but it gives you the clean feeling after you use it. I love the price but the packaging could use some improvement (hard to get out the right amount).
THE PACKAGING IS HORRIBLE, ITS HARD TO GET OUT, AND GETS MESSY.
ITS GREAT FOR OILY SKIN.. ITS VERY CHEAP MASK AND MAKES THE SKIN FEEL NICE. I WILL ALWAYS USE IT CLEANS ALL OILS FROM SKIN.
HG mask!!!! I love this stuff. I used to put this on my breakouts and go to sleep. When i woke up in the morning the ance would be dried up and it took the redness out. I love it. Its also very tingly. Smells minty which also helped me wake up in the morning
One of those products my sister and I have been buying since middle school. Great for an inexpensive mask--and even though I've since graduated to other big girl versions that offer specified benefits, I still come back to this classic. It's an oldie but a goodie and helps me combat my oily T-zone without overdrying.
This masque is very deceiving, it does not deep clean my pores in fact it does nothing at all its just pointless green goop .
Background Info: I have an odd skin type. I'm very dehydrated and my skin gets dry patches around the sides of my face and on my cheeks. However, come summer time, my t-zone becomes extremely oily and similar to combination skin. I'm prone to the occasional pimple, usually related to PMS or clogging makeup products (I have an awful habit of falling asleep with my makeup still on). I'd say my skin type is basically combo - dry/dehydrated.
When I go hunting for a face mask, I am always looking for a zit-zapper. I get my hydration from my cleansers and moisturizers, so what I really need is something that can clear up my skin. This does the trick. Normally, an ingredient like sulfur would dry me out like no other, but since I only use this as an actual face mask once a week (moisturizing immediately afterwards) this isn't a problem for me. Every other day, I use the mask as a spot treatment on areas where I am breaking out or prone to breaking out. For existing pimples, they shrink quicker, disappear faster, and are less likely to scar. For areas where I feel a break out coming on, it prevents them all together.
This is my HG face mask. It's affordable, and I buy it in the tub packaging so I can get the most out of the product. I use it very frequently, but it has still lasted me 3 months and I have about half of a tub full left. With frequent use, I'd say one tub is good for 6 months. I'd definitely repurchase, but I only recommend it for those who do well with sulfur.
This is amazing stuff if you have oily skin or large pores. I've become too dry to use it on my face, neck and décolletage but I still really love it for body and pedicure. I also think it's the best budget mud or masque for men, no flowery scent or pink goo :D
It's a strong clay so not good for delicate areas or dry skin, otherwise, mask weekly as part of your facial or body care and enjoy!
From one use i always wake up with brighter, less red skin which i love but it always gives me alot of tiny very sebum-y breakouts that take weeks to get over, they literaly covered my whole chin area, a bit of my cheeks, my forehead, and my nose! at first i thought it was me and that my skin was just turning terrible but after not using this anymore and giving myself aspirin+honey masks several times a week my skin calmed down and now looks great :)
I'm on my second bottle of this and I love it. At first it kind of burns when you put it on but it goes away after about a minute and then it feels amazing. It leaves a kind of strange smell on your skin afterwards but it works so well that I can easily overlook it. It doesn't dry out your skin in fact it moisturizes pretty well. It does help clear my acne and its fun to do. I do it with my friends and they love it too! I will definitely repurchase this when I run out.
This has to be one of the worst masks I've ever tried. I, too, am surprised when I read the rave reviews...but then again, everyone's skin is different. At the time I tried it, mine was very oily and breakout prone. I was looking for something to reign it in. This made my breakouts worse. By the following morning, my skin was pissed at me. I have since learned to read and research all ingredients. This product doesn't really contain anything (AHA, BHA, BP, sulfur) that is actually going to garner a positive impact on acne. Given it's ridiculously low price, I would also be wary about the quality of the other ingredients. Any way you look at it, this unfortunately did not work for me.
