I received this as part of my sample pack from Mario Badescu.
It smelled delicious at first, but the more I've gotten used it, the more it smells weirdly artificial? Anyway, it feels nice, but no more than most masks do. Effect (both positive and negative) seems negligible. Comes in a jar, so dispensing it is a little unhygienic.
Overall, the Mario Badescu pack has been pretty moisturizing, but also made me break out slightly more often than my normal routine.

This is the best smelling mask I have ever used and also my most favorite mask in the mario badescu line. It doesn't clean my pores as well as other masks but it does tighten my pores and leaves my face with a glowy dewy finish. Because I simply love the smell of the mask, I'm definitely purchasing it again.

I received a sample of this product after completing Mario Badescu's online skin consultation. My mom is a big fan of Mario Badescu and I have come to associate the line with quality ingredients and excellent customer service.
Product guide claims:
- Reduces blackheads and congestion
- Refreshes and revives dull skin
- Cleans and tightens pores
I used this product as directed. It is a pale pink color and feels like clay. I loved how the mask felt-- very "spa-like" and relaxing. After removing the mask, I noticed that my skin was certainly smoother and my pores were clearer. I have some blackheads on my nose, which did not disappear but my skin was no longer bumpy.
I have used this product three times and love the experience. It feels indulgent and luxurious, cleaning and smoothing my skin. To me, it is not a must have but a bonus to any skin care regimen.

I didn't like this. It smells wonderful and feels pretty nice when you have it on, and it's pink, but it doesn't do anything. When I wash it off I look exactly the same, maybe a bit worse actually, because this mask seems to settle in my pores and its a bitch to get it off. It doesn't matter how much I wash it off, there's a film left on my face and I can see small white dots in some of my pores, so no buying this again. Also the mask is in a jar, so its a bit messy to get out and feels unsanitary.

I LOVE this product! I got it as a free sample when I ordered the raspberry body scrub and the strawberry face scrub, and oh my gosh! Between this mask and the face scrub my skin as never felt so soft. My boyfriend noticed a difference the second he touched my cheek, so I know it's not just me. I'm DEFINITELY stocking up on this next time I place an order with Mario Badescu!

I really like this mask. It does clear up a lot and dry up a liitle bit. Skin feels really good and tighten up after I use it. Will keep re-purchasing.

Sadly as with other Mario Badescu products this did not agree with me. It smells nice, but thats about it. After I washed it off it felt like I had a waxy residue on my face. I like my face to feel good after a mask, not greasy.

This smells heavenly. It is very similar to the orange mask so just pick your favorite sent. Doesn't leave your skin all dry. You just end up with glowing skin. And sitting there while it dries is so relaxing. I cannot tell you how amazing this stuff smells.

I think I like this a little better than the Orange Tonic Mask even though to me they are pretty similar. This seems to do a slightly better job at clarifying your pores and maybe a little bit more exfoliating. My face always looks really nourished but clear and radiant after using this, which is great right before a night out.

Creamy, cooling and smells delicious! Endnote: please check the expiration date becasue mine completely dried out and cracked after 3 months. Also, I kept it in the fridge as suggested.

Wow, wow, wow! I didn't expect this mask to do too much for me. I'm 36 and have combo/oily skin that breaks out, especially on my chin (though the MB Buffering Lotion has cut way down on my breakouts.)
From others' descriptions, it sounded like this mask would be pleasant/relaxing, and would make my skin feel smooth, but would not be particularly effective insofar as keeping my pores clear and evening out my skin tone/redness. I was WRONG. This is now my go-to mask. It's gentle, but it definitely gets my skin clean, leaving it feeling taut, but not at all tight. It goes on easily (the clay isn't cakey; more like thick milk of magnesia) and smells wonderful. The morning after using this, my skin is smooth and much more even-toned. I've tried dozens of masks, and this is my hands-down fave.

i remember buying this stuff a couple years ago and all of my friends complimented me on how great my skin looked because i always have problems with acne. this mask seriously cleared up my skin and minimized my pores in about a week. as i type this, i'm wondering why i haven't purchase more of this since. the only conclusion i can come up with is that the packaging is not for me. i would prefer it to be in a tube. it's probably why i've been using st. ives' mask instead.

My favorite mask ever............I was in love with Clinique's Deep Cleansing Emergency Mask but after trying this one I will never go back....it leaves your skin nice, clean and smooth...looks almost poreless. LOVE IT and will buy over and over again!!!!!! A++++++++++

I love this mask so much!!! It smells yummy and feels very soothing on my skin. I use it whenever my face suffers a horrible, yucky oiliness during the hot, humid days. It gives the skin a refreshing, cooling sensation. It rinses off easily, and I immediately notice a softness to my skin. I can't believe how even and smooth my skin feels after using this mask. My pores look near invisible, and my skin has a wonderful, healthy glow! My warm-weather breakouts are kept to a minimum with this mask. All you need is a small amount to cover your entire face. If you have oily skin, acne-prone skin, I can't see that you could go wrong with this mask. This is a must-have for me during the hot, humid summer months to keep my skin smooth and healthy.

I recieved a sample of this after filling out a questionare on the website and loved it so much I asked for a large jar for Christmas. I have oily skin so I think this would be too drying for someone with dry skin, but for me it works wonders. it leaves my skin feeling very smooth, sucks all the oil out so I am not shiny for about two days afterwards, makes my skin GLOW like no makeup ever has, and best of all, smells GREAT. It feel nice to touch and it has lasted FOREVER. I use it about two times a week and I am not even close to being done with it almost six months later. I feel like it wlil go bad before I run out, so it is well worth the money.

This mask works great on my face. It's light, but effective and has a very pleasing scent. I use it about 1-2x per week when I feel my skin is getting oily. I put it on after cleansing and then wash off and actually don't even use a moisturizer/night cream the nights I use this mask, and I wake up with soft and smooth skin. I use this in combination with MB's drying mask 1x per month.

This is a great mask. I like that it goes on in a nice thin layer. My most common irritation with clay type masks is that they go on way too thick and then your face is frozen for the next few minutes until you rinse it off. Not so with this one! You can still smile and speak while it's on. The scent is nice and mild. I like how it feels on my fingertips as I scoop it out of the jar. Very mousse-like. I kind of want to eat a little bit. After rinsing, my skin feels smooth and taut, but not too tight. This is definitely my favorite clay type mask.

I like the mask ok. If I feel like I'm too oily, I'll use this mask to dry my face out. The drying mask is just WAY too drying for my skin, so this one seems to be the right balance for me.
