I've been trying out a lot of Asian skincare lately and although there have been both hits and misses, the one consistent positive has been that these products are SO GENTLE. I haven't had a single product-induced breakout or any adverse reactions, for that matter.
Some masks seem to suck every molecule of moisture off of my face or irritate to the point of turning me a very unflattering shade of tomato red, but the Caolion Blackhead Pore Pack is certainly not one of those malevolent masks.
After spreading it on, it feels warm on the skin - not uncomfortably so, but definitely apparent. It's actually kind of a reassuring sensation, like the mask is really doing its job. 5-10 minutes of waiting and a rinse later, cue the angelic choir. My face looks and feels fantastic, freed from the "dirty" appearance of blackheads and clogged pores. Now this isn't a miracle worker that makes the impurities completely vanish, but it really does minimize the appearance of pores. The price per oz. is a tad bit higher than average, but for the wonderful results, I don't mind shelling out a few extra dollars.
