All aspirin is not created equal! Having used completely dissolvable aspirin and the kind that turns into grits, I am pretty sure that the utterly dissolvable kind broke me out. The kind that works for me has 2 ingredients only: aspirin and lactose. Check the ingredients list on the kind that dissolves into nothing and you'll see a *lot* more ingredients, some of which your skin probably objects to. This is only my experience but I hope it might help some others!.
I use 4 aspirin broken down into a gritty paste and worn for 15-30 mins as a mask, or until it starts falling off on its own. I find that mixing it with honey makes it too runny to wear (it's like the two react with each other to make things runnier!) and I don't use essential oils. This works for me when I want to attack some small whiteheads. There's a bit of a 'glowy' look after but it's very temporary. I only give it 4 stars because while it is cheap and somewhat effective, it just isn't a miracle worker for me.

Please be careful trying this mask. It can really irritate sensitive skin and overdry it. I used to think I needed to dry up my skin to solve my pimple problems and thought using this mask would help. Yes it exfoliates nicely and makes skin smooth but it totally overdried my skin making it blotchy and causing me to break out :-S I've done it twice so far and both times it was just too much for my skin. Think about it - this is not actually designed to go on your skin; so try it at your own risk. I prefer to stick to more mild face masks that sooth skin rather than over-exfoliate and over-dry.

this is awesome! It makes my skin glow, and super smooth! I've used this 3 times now. It is super cheap, and I love that! NO more trips to Derms. office for lactic/salicylic acid peels. While this is not as strong, I figure 2-3 times per week, should come close to equally one peel? I mix this with Non-Fat Plain Yogurt, Honey, and 5-7 aspirin. Just drop the aspirin in the yogurt, and crush a little bit with the back of a spoon, then I add the honey. It helps it stay on. The yogurt is a lactic acid, while the aspirin is the salicylic, and the honey has antibacterial and mositurizing properties. Super cheap, and can make it at home. What's not to love?

I can't believe I didn't read ALL of the reviews before trying it. I only paid attention to the 4-5 lippie ratings.
I tried it with my roommates one evening... and though they were fine. It didn't really do anything special for them. But I'm thankful it didn't, because IT COMPLETELY RUINED MY SKIN! I broke out into cystic acne everywhere the mask was! My skin has never been this bad in my life!
I went to the dermatologist and he prescribed me retin-a and an antibiotic until this problem goes away! Please do be careful since aspirin is a DRUG! Do a spot test first. User BEWARE!!

I LOVE the aspirin mask!! It makes my face look lovely just after I wash it off, and it's an excellent cheap scrub. My aspirin mask consists of:
2 tablets of uncoated aspirin
several squirts of organic honey
And when I have acne: several drops of tea tree oil
And when I feel dry: several drops of jojoba oil.
I leave the mask on for about 30 minutes and then exfoliate as I wash it off. It gets off all my dead skin and gives me this awesome glowy, even skin tone (which doesn't last forever, but it just looks nice right afterwards.) I like to think it helps my skin and soothes it as well.

Ugh. Looking at all the great reviews here I was hoping this mask would clear my acne, but it made my break out even MORE. Ruined my skin.

I have no idea what the magic is in this mask but I LOVE it. My face glows when I do the aspirin mask. I have been doing it 2 times a week at night. I use 6 to 7 aspirin and a few drops of water and rub it on my face after it dissolves into a paste.
I let it set for a few minutes till it dries and then I add a little water and rub in a circular motion for about a minute. Rinse with warm water and Viola, my skin has never been smoother after this mask. I follow with Retin A at night and Camellia oil in the morning and really have been in love with the results.
No more spending $100's of dollars on miracle creams for me. I know now the simplest things bring the best results:) Thanks MUA!!:)

Dirt cheap and more effective than any other spot treatment I've used. The active component is salicyclic acid, which is present in many pre-made spot creams/washes.
You can make an aspirin paste using a few tablets, or a spray using a few dispersible tablets. I use the dispersible tablets in a spray-bottle with water (be careful that the tablets are completely dissolved or they'll clog the spray nozzle).
I have found the spray option more practical and mess-free than making a mask out of aspirin paste, and this way I can leave the treatment on overnight or during the day.
It is very effective and gives obvious results very, very quickly. It is also not as drying as other pre-made potions I've used, and I do not experience any irritation while using this treatment. I have very sensitive skin.
Use your common sense when it comes to the number of tablets you use - you absorb the aspirin so you could overdose or make yourself feel nauseous by using too many.

So I decided to try the infamous aspirin mask. I learned about this right here on MUA. All I can say is that this truly amazing and yet so simple. I spent crazy $$ these past years for toning, scrub, and acne cures. And I would of never have known that the answer was sitting right there in my medicine cabinet LOL I mixed 5aspirins with few drops witch hazel (My hG toner) and a tsp of honey. My skin was literally glowing and the huge pimple i had dramatically went down. I totally recommend this product.
Update: 12/3/08: Just want to say again how great this mask is. lol. I still do get my break outs here and there, but as soon as i put this on, my skin calms down instantly. god bless who ever thought about this mask!

I do this every Sunday...and it has really made my skin look nice. I leave it on for about half an hour (i put it on for one tv show). It's not a miracle worker for me....i mean it hasn't changed the state of the nation. But its a good exfoliator and leaves me skin soft and vibrant. For the cost...I am a fan!
