Still testing it out
Purchased

I am still testing this product. After the first few uses I did not see a significant change in my skin. Over time I think my overall pore size has been reduced, but I will have to continue using the product to attest to its long term affects.

Good but not great
Purchased

I like to experiment with masks and this is a good overall basic oil-absorbing mask. It's not the best but it's certainly far from the worst. It's a good staple to use a couple times a week as part of my skincare routine.

Good Clay Mask
Purchased

I am a collector of clay face masks because or my oily skin, but this one is pretty good. I wasn't sure how it would come out since Murad's Clarifying Clay Mask is one of my all time favorites, but this mask held up pretty well. it goes ok thin and dries restively fast with a tingling sensation at first. it does aboard a good amount of oil too so I usually use it in the morning to reduce my oily patches throughout the day.

works

This product battles acne and aging. There is no smell. It goes on easily. They do recommend following up with a sunscreen after using the product.

Love the product line but...
Purchased

The only thing I did not like about this mask is the fact that it left my skin a little red after I washed the mask off but when I woke up in the morning it was back to normal. It did leave my skin less oily and I have yet to have a breakout but not sure I would repurchase just because of the redness, it was a bit uncomfortable til it wore off. I will have to try another mask to see if I can get the same results with less redness.

Great Mask
Purchased

I was looking for a mask so I came to my trusted Birchbox community! I love this mask. I think it's a great value too.
Really relaxing and refreshing mask. I ordered it to help with oily skin during the summer in the South. Would recommend to friends.

It was okay
Purchased

Honestly, I bought this product because it stated it would absorb the excesses oil on my face. I think it made me break out worse. I love the toner in this product line, but was not impressed with this face mask.

Great for my oily face!
Purchased

This mask is just what I've been looking for! My face gets super oily in the spring/summer! I could literally feel it sucking all of the oil out of my face! Even the next couple of day my face is not as oily! Would def. recommend to anyone with a oily face!

Really works
Purchased

I love clay masks, and this one is really effective. After regular use I have noticed less face-shininess overall, and my skin is really soft.

Love this face mask
Purchased

I really like how this face mask leaves my face feeling after I use it! It leaves my face feeling very clean of impurities and less oily after using as well.
