I love this product. It felt strange at first to be using this, having had oily skin for years and being told to avoid all oil based products. This helps dissolve any make up or grime left on your face at the end of the day and I think it paves the way nicely for your cleanser. My skin feels good after using this and it's great for softening even stubborn blackheads for extraction. Some people think cleansing twice is a con, but in my experience it works and for me that's all that counts.

I have sampled many products over the years trying to get my skin under control. I was excited to try this product but also slightly dubious, as all other cleansers I have used have been specifically for acne/oily skin. Since I began using this my skin has never looked better. I now strongly believe that most products on the market designed for my skin type are just too harsh. My skin is not particularly sensitive, however, I'm sure that years of using these products has prolonged the problem. My skin is still oily but much clearer now and it has an amazing glow. Using a wet muslin cloth to remove the cleanser has a mild exfoliating action which helps to keep my pores clear. I think this product would benefit most skin types but using the muslin cloth might upset more sensitive skin.
My skin has been problematic for many years and in this time I have used countless products trying to find the right ones for me. I can honestly say this is the best of all the masks I have used. Generally I have found that clay masks can either draw out impurities but leave my skin dry or cause it to break out, this mask is different. I was amazed to see the pores on my nose has practically disappeared and so had some other areas of congestion. It didn't clear everything but I have only used it once and hopefully with continued use it will only get better. Also my skin was much less oily when I woke up the next morning. Can't wait to use it again.
