This is absolutely amazing, due to hormonal acne (I'm 13), I break out a lot. I've been getting acne since the fourth or fifth grade, and I would have about 10 large pimples, even more sometimes each day. I use this whenever I have time at night, then immediately use my normal facewash and tone and moisturize. I leave it on for an hour, don't put it on for just five minutes. It would barely have dried and it wouldn't be very effective. This cleanses dirt and impurities from your face. It dries to be really hard and your face feels incredibly, INCREDIBLY restricted of movement, so this might be really hard to adjust to at first, but you get really used to it. When you wash it off, your face feels tight (in a good way) and redness has gone down significantly. It tightens pores and evens out your complexion. This has cured my acne when is used with my facewash, toner, and moisturizer. I'm hoping that this will get rid of acne scarring too!

Lancome pure empreinte masque is amazing ! I've been using this mask for about one year now and I have fallen in love with it ! My skin is combination and sometimes I get random breakouts or my skin becomes very oily in my t zone . When you apply the mask all over your face it will harden within minutes. Your skin becomes instantly tight. I leave it on for at least 30 minutes. When you wash the mask off your skin is bright, tight and the oil is gone. Blemishes also appear smaller and less irritated. I also use this clay mask as a spot treatment. Before I go to bed I dab it on my pimples and leave it over night. When I wake up and wash it off my pimples are a lot smaller and less irritated. One 100ml tube should last you along time because a little goes along way! It is an expensive product but is worth every penny!

A very good product. Reduces redness, cleanses and calms. It's just what I need for my combination oily/dry/pimply/reddish/sad/grey weirdo skin.

What a find! I got this in a smaller size, part of a gift, but much bigger than just a sample. I first use Clarin's facial exfoliater that put this mask on for about 10-15 minutes. Once I am finished my pores are clean and tight and my skin never felt this smooth. I am sure there are cheaper alternatives but a tube of this will last for years at once a week and I KNOW it works so why bother to find something else?

I received a sample of this. It's a very nice clay mask, but I really don't find it to do anything that much cheaper masks don't do. I put it on when I woke up with 2 pimples on my face and it didn't do anything to reduce their size. My skin feels very nice and smooth after using it, but it's definitely not anything to write home about. I like the tightening effect that it gives you and when it dries, it doesn't start to crack and peel off and cause a huge mess like some other products do, which is nice. I would use it again if it were given to me, but I definitely wouldn't seek it out.

I use this 2x per week on Sunday and Wednesday. Sometimes I might throw in an extra day if I have a special event. Here are my thoughts -
- Gentle yet effective
- Dries quicker than other masks. Directions say to leave on for 5 mins. Sometimes I might leave on a little longer, but not much because the clay truly does dry within 5 mins
- Helps reduce oil and firms skin - I see results for about 1 1/2 - 2 days which is extremely impressive in my opinion
- Smells nice
- Doesn't break me out or cause my face to purge
- None. Some might say it costs a lot, but it's cheaper than a facial and you get a good amount of product.

I got a one use sample of this. It felt amazing it got rid of oil without drying out your skin. I didn't see instant results from the one time use but my skin felt amazing afterwards.

my first review, and this is my no.1 HG ever, for almost 20 years now, they have changed the name of it and reformulated it a bit during this period of time, it used to be empreinte de beaute, empreinte, and now pure empreinte. I use it since I was a teenager, my mom got it for me as a gift when I got my first teenage breakouts(around age of 12), and I got to admit it cleans your skin immediately!
I used it allover my face when I was younger, now I use it topically onto blemishes in winter when the skin is on the drier side, and in hot summer all over the face.
I used it the night before my wedding too!!! it gives you an instant glow, makes skin texture and color better more beautiful and glowing! love love love!
probably this is the only product that I use all the time, I just gotta have it always:)
little advice- dont use it too often, no more than once a week, or before special occasions only! topical application is good for sensitive skin.

This product is good but very expensive in my county. i wouldn't buy it again.

Very gentle and deeply cleanse the skin! I wear makeup for long hours daily and have alots of clogs and little bumps in the skin. This mask totally helps to help get rid of these congestions. I used a semi-thick layer for 15 mins and use a scrub cloth to wash off. Used 2x weekly my skin is much much better now. This is better then even the QH Mint Julep which is raved so much for deep cleansing... Empreinte mask wins hands down!

I'm on my fourth tube of this stuff. I was skeptical at first and because I thought that perhaps it was just a regular white clay mask and maybe it is, but for my skin, it's great. The texture of the clay itself is smooth and silky and very easily spreadable. You don't need much (i.e. your face doesn't need to look like it's covered in whipped cream) but I put mine on maybe 2x per week after using the Olay Microdermabrasion kit and my skin is amazingly soft and silky with a uniform matte texture glow afterwards. I think it's just the combination of factors for me that makes this mask work so well. I would say that I don't use it to control oil- white clay or any kind of clay is absorbent but for me it just gives a very lovely luminous look to my skin that I find it worth shelling out 39 euros for once a year, at least.

This product claim to lift dirt and oil from clog pores. Whenever I used this I end up getting a few whitehead. Maybe it's because the dirt and oil was suppose to
Wash off, but to me the reason the whitehead appear is the because it cleaning out the pore while reducing pore size. This is probably why the dirt and oil rise upward trying to rid itself but the pore surface is decrease in size Therefore causing it to block up as whitehead and become inflame by morning. This is my experience. I tried exfoliating before applying the mask and tried it other different way too. Still end up with whitehead in a few places.

I love this mask! I honestly use it every morning during the school week and it leaves my skin refreshed, moisturized and smooth. It leaves a nice clean base for makeup application and lasts a long time. You definitely don't need that much product per application so this little tube is still a good price for the amount of product you get.

LOVE this mask! Definitely my favorite so far. I feel so clean and refreshed after I use it. My skin is sooooo smooth. Doesn't irritate my moderate occasional acne either, in fact, I think it helps it!

I was using the Clarins clay mask when unhappy with that product, I decided to invest in something else. I am not a Lancome fan but wanted to try their eau micellaire MU remover, so I decided to head for their concession at Harrods. I saw this mask and also decided to give it a try without giving it at thought. All I have to say this is an amazing mask for combo skin. MY HG!!! It is 30 UK pounds here, a lot more than the 18 I paid for the Clarins mask, yet it is worth every penny. First of all, it doesn't feel tingly like the Clarins one, which I suspect had more alcohol in it. This goes onto my skin smoothly, makes it tighter but above all, really leaves the skin feeling clean, refreshed and very well moisturised, which is unthinkable for a purifying mask. After applying it you do see a difference on your skin: it does feel whiter, paler, cleaner and very very soft - baby soft...I recommend it.

LOVE this mask, a bit pricey, BUT it lasts FOREVER !! It's actually a great buy when you think about how long the tube lasts. You only need a dime size amount to cover your face thinly. That's all you need. I have had a tube for a long time, and am just now coming to the end.
It cleans your skin and it does the job in only five minutes. Don't leave it on any longer than that. Maybe that's why some people complain it's drying. Great product. So is the hydrating mask by Lancome. I love using it in the winter when my skin can get dry from the winter cold. I ran out though ! Gotta get more, but this Empreinte I can't wait for !

WAY too drying for my skin
it felt really nice at first, but I woke up the next morning and my face was like.. peeling :/ glad I only had a sample!
I'm sure it's a lovely clay mask if your skin can handle it though!

let's say this is the only purifying mask that doesn't irritate my skin........i've tried alot of clay mask on the market......and this is the only one that doesn't dry my skin out liked crazy or make me break out more severely the next few days........because i have really thin skin......a lot of cleansing masks are too strong that burned my face...........so i'm very likely to stick with this one for a long long time...........UPDATE: there are so many clay masks on the market.......after i'm done for the first tube and want to buy a new one, i can't believe i paid 50 something dollars for this mask.......and just to let everyone know, this product is being discontinued so sooner or later i need to look for a new one anywayz..........

I bought this after stumbling on a rave by Andy Paige, who has a beauty blog. (Andy was once on a reality show called Starting Over.) She stated this mask was similar to a facial with extractions, that it works on blackheads and pores. I found it for about $18 on a discount cosmetics website. I don't have blackheads, but I do get clogged pores on my nose.
I've used this twice; once for five minutes and once where I left it on for several hours. Sadly, it did nothing for my clogged pores, except to temporarily make them appear a bit smaller. The gunk is still in there (back to my Biore strips). However, this mask does offer a temporary mattifying effect. I was less shiny on my nose for about a day after I used the mask. Since it's too drying for my winter skin, I will limit its use to my nose before big meetings and events during the cold months, then use it more frequently in the summer.
I doubt I will purchase again.
