nothing amazing here. i feel like all clay masks work the same. it temporarily absorbs oil but does nothing to prevent more oil the next day or breakouts. no idea why everyone likes it so much! its been sitting on the bottom drawer of my bathroom forevvverrrrr and i only use it when i feel like using a cheap boring mask. oh and its like exactly the same as the queen helene one to me.
UPDATE: As far as I can see, göt2b has discontinued their line of facial care products, so this isn't available anymore. =( (April 5, 2009)
Description: This is an amazing masque. It works well on my skin, patches of which range from super oily to super, super dry, depending on the season. You're supposed to put a thin layer all over face, avoiding the eye and lip area. Wait up to 10 minutes or so (though you can leave it on for longer) for it to dry and then wash it off.
Pros: The masque has a creamy consistency and it dries well. It brings down inflammation of the face beautifully (for me at least). I even used it on other parts of my body (like on ingrown hairs in my armpits) to bring down swelling and it did! I find that not only does it help oily skin feel less greasy, but it's not over-drying either. It doesn't aggravate severely dry skin that much and even on my skin when parts of it get severely dry in the winter (I'm talking peeling, flaking, burning) it still makes it look better. I find that it doesn't break me out, and that it clears up my face, leaving it soft, smooth, and (I like to think) radiant.
The tube is well constructed. It is upside down, so no annoying shaking to get the product out. It is also sturdy, so if it gets squeezed some, the stuff doesn't come gushing out of the other end. It's also really inexpensive. It's about 4 USD for a 6.8 oz (200 ml) tube.
Cons: If you leave it on for too long on dry skin, it can sting a little.
Overall: I would repurchase over and over. This is the only masque that I've used that has actually worked for me and has left my skin in such wonderful condition. I highly recommend using it once or twice a week.

I absolutely love this stuff. It has a nice smell, consistency, and does an amazing job at clearing up my skin! I use this, and then follow up using an extractor to get rid of a lot of clogged pores and blackheads. It's super cheap. I use it twice a week and I'm hooked.
I love this product. I use it about once a week (usually on Sunday nights), and it has a really relaxing smell, and even though it's kind of hard to wash off, I really love how my skin feels after. My pores actually feel tighter, and still will when I wake up the next morning.
I love this product. It is very purifying and my pores seem smaller after using it. And the scent is actually calming.... i think its like rosemary!
I only use this on my nose and chin - otherwise too drying for my cheek skin (which is oily too! Go figure).
Pores look smaller; the smell is reminiscent of men's aftershave but whatever.
Loveeeeee this mask..wht a great find, my friend was raving nonstop about this mask..decided to give it a shot as it was not that expensive. This is a clay mask that can be a bit tingly while drying and it comes off very easily and my skin felt very firm, moisturised and bright..I will be buying this again.
EDIT*** I am almost done with the tube..love this stuff, my skin feels tight after i use this..but the only con is, i am not able to find this anywhere??
very cheap. leaves my skin very clean. though it stings a little, i love what it does -tightens my pores, prevents breakouts....will buy again.
This product is more of a 3.5 than a 4. When I first bought this, I loved it. That was before discovering Queen Helene. These two products are very similar. I don't mind either scent and they're all very cheap. They both sting a bit to use, eh. I prefer this one's texture more. However, this one purged my skin a little with every use so I would break out, while qh left my skin beautiful. Plus this doesn't contain sulfur. Hence, I'm using QH for now
I have sensitive, eczema prone skin. I liked using this product because of it's smooth buttery consistancy, but after using it for a few months every few days, I realized it was causing red splotches on my face every time I used it. I didn't beleive it at first, but sure enough I experimented and my skin consistantly looked better and more even in tone on the weeks when I didn't use it.
People with very sensitive skin/excema BEWARE!
