This is a nice clay mask, but a little pricy for what it is, I think. It does clean my pores well, and it does tighten my face. Temporarily. But I also find it incredibly irritating, I can`t keep it on for more than 5 minutes, 7 tops. Recently it seems to redden my cheeks so badly I`ve had to stop using it. It might be a little too much for sensitive combo skin.

This mask actually does exactly what it says it will do. I use it before special events, and am always happy with the result. It tightens the skin, makes it appear brighter, and shrinks pores in 10-15 minutes. It can be a little drying, so I make sure to always apply something very hydrating afterwards. I actually notice this mask tightens so much that it reduces all the puffiness, and water retention in my face. It makes my jawline, and cheeks looks taut and firm. It really helps to show the definition in your face without looking too tight, or unnatural. My mom even jokes about this mask being a facelift in a tub! I think anyone can use it, it's not just for mature or aging skin - even though it's marketed that way. The actual product is a slightly stinky (chemical-y, which is weird since MB products are actually quite natural), rosy, scent that is pink in color. The mask tends to harden at the top in the tub, and you have to break through that layer each time to get to the actual product. It applies smoothly on the skin, but immediately starts to harden and change in color to a more light pink-y hue. The directions state to wear only for about 10-15 minutes - and trust me that's as long as you will want to keep it on. It feels like a clay mask X 10 on the skin, and really tightens to the point where you can't move your face. Not to worry, when you wash it off you will be very happy with how toned and fresh your face looks. You can even apply it down the neck if you want to firm that up as well. So overall, a great mask. This is not your "weekly" treatment mask that will show effect's over a period of weeks - it's a temporary, special occasion treatment meant to be used once, or twice a month. With this mask you see immediate effect's, which is super awesome! It's nice having a product like that in your skincare collection.

This made my skin look better, smaller pores, less congested and rested. I wish I could use this everyday. I will re-purchase once my sample is over.

Awesome mask!! I wouldn't use this everyday, but for a perfect lift-me up before a party, it's the best. I actually notice a VISIBLE change in my skin when I take it off...it always looks more rested and hydrated, even when I've pulled an all-nighter. It's drying, and you can only keep it on for 20 minutes, but it really does work. Try it!!

It looks and feels expensive....it glides on and is very smooth. Once it dried, I could see every pore on my face amplified (like it was drawing out the impurities). It takes a bit of time to wash off, but my face feels so clean right now.I also like how they name it "temporary lifting mask"....they like aren't making any bets if it's going to work or not. Well, it seems to have worked for me, at least temporarily.

I have HUGE pores and this mask actually tightens them for a while. It makes my skin feel super clean and soft too. I just hope I can get through the jar before it dries out. The salesperson told me to only use it once a week for 10-15 minues since it is stronger than other masks. She also said I can add water to thin it out if necessary. We'll see if I have to do that. So far, one of the best masks I have ever used. A little pricy but you get a lot for the money, I have spent so much money on stuff that doesn't work, its nice to finally get my money's worth.

I just purchased the temporary lifting mask from MB. I am a big fun of MB and since I keep purchasing stuff they keep sending me samples so more or less, I've tried about 30 products from MB. The rose-smell and rose-colored temporary lifting mask is among the few ones that I'd highly recommend. The smell is a little bit overwhelming as I have sensitive nose and allergy issues to certain aromas. It's heavy rose sweet aroma, the color is kind of peach-pinkish. I put it on for 10 min and it start tingling the 1st min. But not in a bad way like I put my tea tree oil on, more like I that I felt skin tightening up right away. So around 10min, the original liquid running mask hardened and almost became a clay. I washed it off with ease and voila. my jawline is clearly and VISIBLY improved. I can tell because I did the half face the 1st time. I don't know how long the effect will last but I guess it's pretty temporary, but still it's a good thing to use before major party. it rased my jawline and made my face smaller and it doesn't do any harm to my sensitive skin. I think I'll use it regularly to see if this has long lasting effect.Ingredients: Deionized Water (Aqua), Calamine, Wheat (Triticum Vulgare) Starch, Egg Albumin, Sorbitol, Zinc Oxide, Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Rose Petal Extract. continued >>
