So far this mask is HG material, will update if this changes! Got it for $6 on clearance at Walgreens and even though I don't need anymore face products, the price was enough to justify purchasing.
Smells like a tropical smoothie

Doesn't dry completely, easy to remove
No breakouts or irritation
Reduces irritation from blemishes
Lessens the amount of blackheads on face
Feels like icy hot on my face and burns if left on past the 5 min mark
There's a lot to love about Alba's papaya enzyme mask and my clog-prone, sensitive skin has benefited greatly from it..never in my life have I had such naturally glowing skin that radiates through my makeup. HG amazing:) I use this 1-3 times per week. It seriously works at perfecting my skin, shrinks pores, and restores a healthy glow!

I am definitely a mask girl! I have tried a lot of facial masks at this point. I must say that I am loving this hawaiian papaya enzyme mask so far. I like that Alba Botanica sticks to all natural products and the smell is so divine. It smells of pineapple and feels gel-like upon application to the face. While the sticky green substance is not what one expects, it glides on easily. This mask dries longer than the typical clay mask.
I use this mask on a rotation with others in the shower. I like that this mask does not have me washing the tub of particles, like clay masks. My face tingles ever so slightly. It definitely reduces inflammation, when I have a major acne breakout. And it leaves my pores smaller and barely visible.
Overall, this is one of my favorite masks. I got it on sale at Walgreens for $7.50.

Would I have purchased this mask were it not on sale, ten dollars off? No. However, this is love at first use and I do mean LOVE. I had trepidation on spending the money on Alba but was always curious.
This yummy gel-like mask is cooling and I know it works, I can feel the enzymes eating away at the dead and yucky skin. I used to get papaya enzyme peels from my esthetician and I can honestly say this mask does the same good as the professional one.
Consider me an Alba convert.

This is very cooling and helps a brake out go away faster if I'm braking out ill use it 1-3 times a week, I started with once away and worked my way up to 3. One good finger tip dip is all you need so even though it's a little pricey it last a long time, just make sure you wash it off after 5 minutes

The employee recommended this for me to freshen up my skin because it started to seem dull with little bumps. I ended up going back for it after reading reviews. I bought the toner as well. I am in love and addicted to this product. I feel so much better and my skin glows after I do it. I limited myself to 3 times a week. You definitely need to moisturize after this and the toner

I'm not a mask girl. I bought this because it was the most expensive beauty product in the grocery store and I hate to leave with just groceries.
I gotta say - I like this mask! It does slightly tingle, for me, only on the areas I regularly exfoliate/AHA. Because I don't have sensitive skin, or because I'm crazy, I like a little sting. Makes me feel like it's working.
I use this when I've been half-assing my skin care regime, to give it a more thorough cleaning. The thing I really love about this mask is that it definitely smooths and cleanses, but instead of stripping the skin, leaving it dry and tight (in a bad way), leaves it dewy, moist and comfortable.

love. I use it 3 days after a chemical peel to help get the flaking skin off gently

I have a love/hate relationship with tubs of products. On one hand it's easier to get it all out, on the other it makes me shudder to stick my fingers into the product. (I use a tongue depressor now. Easy fix!) I also have sensitive skin. It's nothing crazy but it means I can't use this product more than once a week. But even using it that infrequently still helps my skin! I use this as a pre mask gel and it makes my skin smooth and pores open. It's hard to wash off if you leave it too long, so either watch the clock or take a shower to rinse it off! :)

It's a clear gel, with a pleasant fruity smell. After application it feels refreshing and moisturizing with a slight tingle, but honestly the effect on my skin is not that overwhelming.
I have used it all up and I have enjoyed using it, but I will not repurchase, since I don't see that much of a peeling effect on my skin. It might as well be yoghurt.
So a nice product, no bad side-effects, but not super amazing.

I am an esthetician so I am pretty picky.
Applied in a thin layer in the shower, this product works wonders. You get a nice tingle, gentle exfoliation and glowing skin.
I wish it came with a pump, I hate scooping product out with my fingers.
For an added oomph I sometimes use this product with my clarisonic.
This is HG for me.
