This mask smells like gasoline or some kind of a harsh chemical. I definitely don't recommend this! The SA at Henri Bendel swore by it along with the drying lotion, but I wanted to throw it out after I used it the first time! Should have returned it right away, now it's too late.

STINKY. But it does work but no better than my MB Drying Lotion which doesn't reek so i will stick with that instead.

Yes it smells terrible, but it works. I've never tried the drying lotion so I don't know if that is better at drying up pimples.

Smells like cigarettes! Performs no better than a basic clay mask you would buy at a drugstore.

This mask smells like gasoline because it is sulfur based. I was amazed because it disolved all of the blackheads that were clogging my nose. All I had to do was wipe them off. This worked better than a biore strip.

Only right for very oily skin. Made my face very red afterwards as it is very harsh. Really only for severe cases. I would recommend the cucumber mask for average normal - oily skin cases. Clears up breakouts and leaves skin fresh and pores clean.

This was too drying to use as a mask, however...I tried this as an overnight spot treatment for blemishes and it worked WONDERS!!!
I use it all the time now and blemishes seem to disappear in a day or two with no irritation. Plus I don't have to worry about it bleaching my sheets like benzoyl peroxide does! One gripe is the smell (like black melted tar!) but I don't mind it too much since it does such a good job on my blemishes!

I cannot begin to describe how nasty this stuff smells. Apart from that, it seems like an average clay mask - which is to say it didn't do much for me.

I've been using this over the past week after I had a skin consultation at the MB salon. It was recommended that I start off w/ the mask nightly for a week to help get my ultra oily skin under control. And I must say, it's been less oily since I've started. I've also been using their whole line, so it's hard to say what's working and what isn't, but I do like this mask. I don't find that it makes me red afterwards, but my skin isn't sensitive. It smells nasty, but I don't sleep with it on. So far, I'm satisified, and would recommend it for anyone w/ out of control oiliness and problem skin. Update: Well, it got to be a bit too much after awhile, so I'm down to once a week. Still would recommend it on those nights that you're sleeping alone.

This is a trully great mask. I am a huge product junky and have tried all different brands - and for me this mask is the best. I have very oily skin that is prone to breakouts and I tend to pick on my skin a lot. So this mask is great to use after I put my face through some thorouh tourture. It calms my skin down and prevents new flare ups. I have shared this mask with 3 of my friends - all of which have different skin types and they all loved it. Another great mask is the soothing and calming mask by Mario Badescu.
