I just bought this product about 2 weeks ago and tried it for the first time 4 days ago. It is a fabulous product. It tightens my skins, but also lifts the dirt off my face. It deeps cleans further more than just a cleanser and is it great to use once a week. I think using it more will definitely aggravate your skin. I dis not give this product 5, because it really does sting a lot when you first apply it. Also this is a great spot treatment! As soon as u notice a pesty zit forming, put this on at night and by the morning it should be completely gone or significantly reduced!

I bought the St Ives Mineral Mask because I wanted a face mask that would make my face refreshed. What I realized when i got home was that this contains Sodium Laureth Sulfate. For those who don't know what that it is. It is a cheap filler ingredient. Sulfates dry out the skin. This destroys your skins acid mantle which is highly irritating to the skin. I would not apply this over sores or pimples.This sulfate is actually used as a herbicide and pesticide to kill plants and insects.
I find that companies put these terrible ingredients in their products simply because they can get away with it. I will not be repurchasing.

I love drugstore face masks, so I wanted to try this one. Like any other clay mask, it gets rid of oil & cleans out your pores. I don't know about firming, as I'm only 21? So I haven't noticed anything with that. To me, it smelled like cleaning products at first.. but I've grown to kind of like the scent. It's a nice change from all my freeman masks (but I love those, too).

I'm normally a drugstore product snob. But I bought this mask on a whim a few months ago for a girl's night in. I'm quite impressed with this mask. I've used much more expensive clay masks and I feel the results are quite simillar - for a fraction of the price!The mask dried quickly and came off nicely (no gross residue left on my face). It seemed to help clear some blackheads and my face appeared firmer! Impressed!

I can't believe I've never reviewed this gem as I've been using it for years. I have tried many other clay masks from high end to drug store, but always go back to this old and faithful friend. It's so inexpensive, but does an amazing job of sucking up oil, removing the gunk from my pores, and leaving my skin feeling amazingly smooth and soft without irritating my skin.

I would not say this mask is great nor terrible. The price is just reasonable anyway. I use this twice a week, and it does make my skin firm. It's very easy to apply and dries quickly. It's a good try.

I don't feel like this is a really great mask, although it's not terrible either. I still prefer Noxzema masks. The price was alright, but the result wasn't amazing; pretty much what I'd expect from a good toner. I didn't feel that it made my skin firmer, although it did tighten my pores. It smells nice and it dries quickly, very wearable. It's worth a try, I'd say, if you're thinking about it.

I have not figured out what this product does for me, after going through 1/3 of the tube. I have acne-prone combination skin with stubborn blackheads, and I did not find this product to be deep cleaning or minizing pores or reducing blackheads. It is called firming mask, yes, when the clay dries on my face it feels VERY firm, but besides that I didn't notice visible effects. I'm not using it any more because it does not seem to do anything to my skin. My daily routine of a good facial wash + moisturizer does a lot more.
