A fairly decent mask but nothing state of the art. It's a multi-tasker which doubles as a scrub when you dampen and massage it off with water...however me being me, I prefer to use an exfoliator before masking, not after, so that the mask gets to work on my skin, not the dead skin cells! I find this mask helps with hormonal acne on my chin, or the odd blemish on my cheek or forehead but not as powerful as say Avene Cleanance or Sand & Sky Pink clay, the latter of which, like Lush's, is also a multi-tasker but one that performs strongly regardless of what it is you're trying to achieve.
It's not too drying either (keep in mind I'm using the self-preserving version which contains extra honey and doesn't dry out so much).
The temporary 'flush' caused by the peppermint oil seems a bit gimmicky and I'd imagine for sensitive skin types it's a no-no. I'd much rather have a glow that lasts and is due to my skin absorbing beneficial ingredients, not a strong essential oil.
All in all an ok mask, just not one that I'd necessarily rush out to buy again.

(As I've sampled many 100s of skin, hair and m/u products over the last decade and a half, I thought it might be useful to share my top 10 must-have products, subject to change if and when I come across something more effective. I love constantly trying out new stuff - usually sample sizes via e-bay, also plenty courtesy of a friend who works at Sephora)
