First, I thought the packaging was very modern and up to date. It gave it a very expensive look. I could not wait to try it!! BUT when I used it it started to give a bit of a burn, which I thought was somewhat strange but went with it thinking it might be part of the "mud". I followed the directions and when I rinsed my face was bright red and looked liked it had been steamed! I have never had this kind of problem with any other mask I have tried, be it mud, peeling, or sheet. I had to put cold cloths on my face for a bit to get rid of the sting and then put on a gel. My face started to "peel" the next day. I probably won't buy this in a full size but I am VERY glad I did sample it before I did.
