I really love using charcoal masks because they really help with blackheads. I have larger pores on my chin and cheeks, and I tend to get blackheads in these areas.
This product goes on like a thick lotion and dries within a couple of minutes. After about 10 minutes, I remove with a warm washcloth. There isn't a blackhead on my face afterword! I use about once a week, and this is my go-to mask.
The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because a) I would love a better fragrance - it isn't bad but isn't delightful either, and 2) I wish the product was a little thicker - it goes on like a lotion, but it takes several applications to get a thick, even coat on my face.
Even so, I really really like this charcoal mask and use it regularly!
