I have been using this mask for over 10 years, so obviously it is a winner with me. It leaves my skin refreshed, clean, and tight. I love the feeling of the mask when it dries: you can feel it shrinking your pores. Once it dries on your face, you dont have to worry about the mask getting on your clothes and etc because it really, really is dried on your face. It looks pretty cool (a mint green), too. Overall, the quality, price, and effectiveness of this mask should sell you. As a consumer that does NOT like to use just anything on her skin, I have found QHs MJM to be a fine product for both sensitive & regular skin. I will continue using it until they discontinue it!
I love this face masque. It gets deep down into the pores and afterwards my skin feels amazing and soft. The trick to this masque is to exfoliate before. I use a washcloth and a non soapy gentle cleanser before hand. I apply a very thick layer to my face while it is damp concentrating it on the T-zone area. Then let the masque dry and voila! Be sure to moisturize after wards of course. The only downfall to this product is the bottle can be hard making it difficult to get all the product out. Other than that it is a great soothing masque for oily acne prone skin.
Lives up to the hype! I use this roughly once or twice a week. Smell is minty but not strong. You have enough time to apply it before it dries. Be careful when squeezing it out though, sometimes mine flies out of the tube.
- For PORES, it does a great job at reducing the size of them. The appearance lasts up to 5 days then I start to notice my pores again.
- In terms of BREAKOUTS, it does not eliminate blemishes but does help reduce the intensity of them. When I first starting using this mask, it would noticably help prevent my breakouts. After a few months of using - I have noticed that it's not as effective anymore. I will need to switch masks.
- I couldn't find this product in Australia so I ordered it off iherb.com. If you're interested, here's a discount code: ZEH931. $5 off purchase ($10 for orders over $40).
This is my definite go to mask on my spa days at home (which unfortunately arent so often). I love how fresh it feels when its on how fresh my skin feels when i take it off. I love it.
This has been my go to mask for as long as i can remember. I started getting acne around 8 years old so my mother used to put this mask on my face before i took a shower. It really helped clear up my face and absorbed the excess oil. The best thing about it is the price! I have purchased some pricey face masks and this one is hands down one of the best for acne prone skin.
I heard it was good for cleaning pores. I didn't see any of that - actually, this mask is quite difficult to remove and I felt this stuck to my face so well that I had to use a facial scrub so I could be sure all of it was removed. Then I suddenly got a lot of dirty pores and broke out in small blackheads. I'm not sure if it was because there was something in it that my skin didn't tolerate or because this actually clogged my pores.
I wouldn't suggest people with dry or sensitive skin to use this mask. My skin felt rough after using this and it pulls quite a lot of moisture out and left my skin looking very dehydrated. I had read that some people therefore preferred to use it on blemsihes to dry them out. I tried that numerous times, but It just didn't work for me - witch hazel toner with alcohol dries out blemishes much better. Hydrogen peroxide (3 %) also works (only use locally!). Benzoyl peroxide is good. Of natural things I think turmeric (powder mixed with water) should be good against blemishes (may stain light skin yellow).
This also did nothing to reduce the redness on my face.
My sensitive, dry, picky skin benefits much more from acids, good quality moisturizers, gentle cleansers, good makeup removers and sunscreen to stay pretty - this is just way too harsh for my skin type. It doesn't clean my pores, which are quite small - for me, pore strips help much better. It doesn't of get rid of my pimples and makes my skin look red after usage.
If you still want this, you can buy this from iherb.com. They ship nearly all over the world and they have also lowered their cheapest shipping prize from $6 to $4. If you're a first time customer, you can use my coupon code JUZ808 and get a discount of $5 (if shopping for less than $40) or $10 (if shopping for more than $40).
I also want to say how the code works: if you use it, I get a small percentage of the price you paid. Yes: people earn money when you use their code. If you feel strongly negative about this, you can use iherb's own code ABC123, and only iherb will earn money from your buy.
Amazing!!!! I use this whenever my face is in real need of some help. It's refreshing feels great and overall the best mask I have ever used. I even use this for spot treatment and leave it on overnight and to my surprise some even vanish the next day or are dramatically reduced with minimal redness. Definitely my go to product when my skin needs a quick fix.
This is the only face mask I use. It smells really good. Obviously it's minty, but not the annoying minty scent that gives you a head ache. I use it about once ever 1-2 weeks. It makes my skin really smooth and tight & it dries out any pimples I have. And it's only like $2 where I buy it. I def recommend it.
I first started using this product in 2002. It is an amazing product, wish it were easier to find. I would definitely recommend others to try this product. But like most products try it out on just a patch of your skin first. And go from there.. :)
The packaging is meh. The product even more so.
On sensitive skin, the mint really hurts and aggravates. My face was red and burning. Avoid this if you have sensitive skin.
I also developed an allergy reaction to this. Not sure from what, but since then I've also switched to natural / organic skincare.
