Not loving this so far. I purchased this for $10 during the Black Friday sale. The jar itself is the typical TBS flimsy packaging: a simple round tub with a screw-on lid of typical plastic. The product itself is generously heaped into the small tub. The product is pale blue with a noticeably grainy texture. The smell is fairly unpleasant and I would liken it to clay dust. I use this product on damp skin after I cleanse. It goes on with a slight stinging sensation regardless of how little or much I use. I apply generously and thoroughly in gentle circular motions and let sit for one hour. It does harden and become flaky over that time but it doesn't hurt to talk - just gives you a strange 'stiff' sensation as the mask cracks. It remains passably damp for the entire hour. I remove by first splashing with water to soften and then gently wiping away with wet hands in circular motions. I rinse my face thoroughly and pat dry. It leaves my skin feeling very soft and clean. It's a pleasant, moderate mask in all aspects. It doesn't really do much for zits over than dry them out and it doesn't cause break outs. I like to use it for the exfoliation. I would recommend it to a friend but I don't think I'll repurchase this particular product.
UPDATE: I'm adding that this mask seems to cause small whiteheads. I'm not sure if this is the "purging" effect that I've heard new products can have on a person's skin. I am definitely not prone to whiteheads so this is unusual for me. There isn't very many: I've gotten perhaps 5 or 6 after using this mask consistently for a week or so. They're very small and barely noticeable. Just thought I should add that in case it's a big concern for someone out there.

I purchased this during the 40% off sale happening right now at The Body Shop and with the sale it was only $10! There is a generous amount of this product and I love the grainy but smooth consistency. I was in need of a new clay mask and I was drawn to this because it exfoliates as well. This feels like a traditional face mask. After I remove my makeup and cleanse my skin, I apply this mask on a slightly damp face, and spread around a generous amount and then wait about 15 mins and then gently exfoliate the remains of the mask in circular motions until I rinse it off completely. After my skin is not only extremely clean but well exfoliated and comfortable. It seems to be very effective in cleaning and minimizing pores! I'm still waiting to see if it helps to clear up my slightly hormonal jawline breakout, but currently I am loving this!

A simple scrub+mask product that deeply cleanses oily skin. I bought many bottles of this for my boyfriend and he enjoys this a lot. Its packaging and blue-ish texture make the product man enough for men. I would recommend buying this for male friends or family members if you want to help them with their skin.

I have oily and acne-prone skin. This mask makes my face so smooth and clean and after i use it all my pimples are smaller and my skin are not blemish anymore.
It is better to use moisturizer after using this product so that your skin won't be too dry.

I would repurchase this over and over again.
Yes it tingles/stings when its on my face, but the results are soo worth the slight discomfort! It makes my face smooth, clean and moisturized, I love this mask.
I only use it once or twice a week so I don't irritate my skin, but whenever I feel like my skin is looking dull, apply this on and I get brighter skin immediately.

I will repurchase this product so damn hard if I ever run out of it.
I used it no less than once a week and have been doing so for months. I have yet to see the bottom of this thing.
A thin layer is more than enough, I think it can sting a little if the layer is too thick.
It leaves my skin smooth, lean, refreshed and really soft.
Love this mask!

I love this mask and I keep reading about people saying omgosh it tingles well I don't understand a thin layer is all that's needed and I had no tingle. I really love how it clarified my pores and got the ick out of my skin. When I rinsed my skin was glowing,calm, and happy. I followed up with a AHA pad then my AHA 10% lotion and my skin feels like butter. I don't know maybe because I have been using retinoids and aha for a while so maybe that's why it didn't tingle, but I really think one should use a thin layer you save more of the product and you don't need a lot to get the job done.
I really like this mask and the smell as well. It made my angry PMS pimple less angry at me so I'm happy with this product. Also my sister who has been having a bad acne breakout loved this mask and it showed. Her skin looked so much calmer and the big red spots looked smaller. This is really a good product and I like it and will continue to use this. I can definitely see why this is a cult classic.

It's pretty good value because its a large tub..I couldn't leave his mask on for more than 15 seconds because it stings soooo bad! I don't why no other people mentions that It stings so bad maybe it's just me lol I wouldn't buy this again :/

This mask is a great find.I use it once every week, it leaves my skin feeling refreshed and clean. I love the little beads that act as an exfoliator when it's time to wash the mask off, they are not too harsh and still exfoliate good enough to get rid off dry patches. Also I noticed when I apply makeup after this mask, My skin doesn't get oily as much.
