This mask is amazing! I got a sample of 1 pod and I used only about 1/4 of the product. I can get about 3 more uses from it, especially since I put on a thicker layer than the instructions said to. I also left the mask on for about 20 minutes, instead of the recommended 10. When I washed the mask off, my skin felt amazingly smooth. It has never felt this good!! There was no noticeable smell to the mask and I got some close to my eyes - no stinging either. I would say that the price is pretty steep for the product, but I dont know how it compares to other products with a similar amount/ounce. I would definitely splurge on this once because the product can last you a while.
