"I absolutely love using masks so I am happy to be able to try all three of L'Oréal Paris's clay masks and this one I am focusing on today is the Exfoliate & Refine Pores. (Red Algae Mask) The Exfoliate & Refine Pores mask is made up of Kaolin, Montmorillonite, Moroccan lava clays and enhanced with Red Algae extract. It is supposed to refine skin, minimize pores and remove dead cells, dirt and oil to leave your skin feeling smooth and breathable. Packaging: The packaging is very nice and elegant just like the other two boxes in the line (Brighten & Detox, Purify & Mattify). All three boxes look very similar with green, but each show the color of the mask alongside the bottom to the sides. I ended up recycling all three boxes. You do get a decent size in a glass jar of 1.7 oz. of product. The size of the jar itself is compact and not as bulky as I thought it would be after removing from the box. The box does make it appear larger than it really is. As like the other jars there is a little white seal that you can easily remove and place back on. This does collect a lot of product so do be careful upon opening. I still use the white seal as to make sure the mask does not dry out. There is no applicator given. Appearance & Texture: The color looks exactly like red clay/dirt. Not sure if the red clay/dirt color is actually from the red algae extract or solely from the iron oxides. I like the color and reminds me of a natural clay product. Inside the jar the texture looks creamy, thick and gritty from the apricot seed powder. Just with the appearance of the larger apricot seed powder I expected this mask to exfoliate pretty well. Smell: You are able to smell the mask once you open the lid. I feel the scent of the Algae mask is as strong as the Charcoal, but smells differently. With that said the Eucalyptus mask has the weakest fragrance. This red algae scent reminds me of some sort of floral detergent. If you are very sensitive to smelly fragrance beauty products this one might not be for you as it does sit on your face for 10-15 minutes. Parfum/Fragrance is labeled ingredients to safely assume it's not natural. For me personally I did not have an issue with the scent and have had no headaches or irritants with the smell. Use: Just like the other two masks the Exfoliate & Refine Pore mask is created to use with all skin types. I would recommend with any skin product to test a little spot before fully using to see how your skin is going to react. I have combination of dry and oily skin and since I have started using this mask I have seen no changes or had any irritations. I will probably only use up to 2 times a week since I feel it exfoliates great and I personally don't like over exfoliating. You can actually over exfoliate so I wouldn't recommend going over the 3 times a week as they have instructed. With the weather becoming dryer as we step into fall is another reason I feel I don't need to use as much. Application: Apply over a clean and dry skin. You can either apply all over face, targeted areas or whatever you please, but avoid eyes and lips. Leave the on for 10-15 minutes and then remove with water. Although this does not come with an applicator I don't have any issue using my fingers to spread the product around. I always make sure my hands and face are clean before applying. You can definitely feel the seeds move around on your skin as soon as you start applying. I like to move the product in soft circular motions over my skin before letting it sit. There is an instant cooling and tingly feeling. I also like the fact that none of 3 masks flake or dry out making your face feel like the Sahara desert. I feel the mask dries fairly quickly and the seeds remain on your face unless you rub them of with your finger. I do feel my face tighten a little bit, but it's not uncomfortable and I am able to smile, laugh and take a drink. Since my boyfriend saw me in the charcoal mask this time he thought this one looked disgusting and compared it to dried blood. I don't know what he's thinking (lol). The mask moves fairly easy over my face and I like to personally use a good coating of product, but I do wonder how long the jar will last. I normally jump in the shower after using the masks, but it does remove easily over the sink. I like to use a soft washcloth to remove the mask. It does not take much effort nor is it messy. I also quickly clean and rinse out the washcloth and I've had no issues with staining. With the seeds you do get an extra scrub/exfoliation while washing away the mask. I do not smell the fragrance after it has been completely removed. My face feels cleaner and tighter afterwards. After using for about a week and half I did not have any breakouts, red splotches or irritation. Price: I think the price is great for the amount of product you get. Even though it's a name brand it's easily affordable. Overall: I have started using the 3 masks in a combination for different areas I want to tackle. This gives versatility I haven't seen with other clay masks/product line. This creates a unique and fun experience. The Exfoliating & Refine Pores (Red) clay mask does have a strong fragrance so I would not recommend for sensitive noses. Out of the 3 I love this one the best. I feel I get a good deep clean from the apricot seed powder and the scent does not bother me. For me playing/using the masks gives me a good excuse to take time for myself and relax. I received this item for free from a promotion by L'Oreal for my honest review. Every review I do is based 100% off of my experience with the product and I do not guarantee a positive review.

"Here is what you need to know about me: early 30s, dry and sensitive skin.Use: Twice a week, nightimeI adore this mask. I have very sensitive skin and this is one of the first facial masks that I can use that is gentle for my skin without sacrificing utility. I will use this mask on Sunday Night, which is my big skin care night, and either Wednesday/Thursday depending on my schedule. I will use this mask before I go into the rest of my routine. My skin feels clean and smooth with zero irritation (*please note: when I first used it, there was slight redness and irritation. But I find that to be normal with all new products - especially products that are meant to exfoliate - when they are used on sensitive skin. It was nothing dramatic, no pain, and I did not break out at all. By my 3rd use my skin had acclimated to the new product and I had zero reactions.) « less" - ulta.com user
Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque from Kiehl's is a cleansing face mask that helps minimize the appearance of pores.
"Hands down one of the best masks I've tried , and will continue on using. A little goes a long way. Please Please Please use this with the BRAGGS ACV - W/ the mother it will make a huge difference, I can't stress this enough!!!!!!! My skin is oily around my t-zone area, so I try to apply it only in that area or areas where I tend to break out & T-zone, I find it to dry out a bit the rest of my face. And When I do a full face of this mask I add a drop or two of Coconut oil, almond oil or tea tree oil depending what I have at hand to avoid drying out the rest of my skin. Other than that THIS IS AN AMAZING MASK for skin & hair as well." - walmart user
"This is the first time I’ve reviewed a product on here. I purchased this product based on all the positive reviews.I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that this product does EVERYTHING it promises, and is made with a fairly clean list of ingredients. I’ve FINALLY found my HOLY GRAIL face mask. It has become a staple in my skincare routine that I CAN’T live without... and neither should you.Bareminerals... if you’re listening, PLEASE don’t ever stop making this.It feels and smells lovely and leaves my skin looking and feeling even lovelier... my skin looks brighter, smoother, the pores more refined and the texture is softer. This mask is not drying which is the problem I have had with all the other clay masks I’ve used. It feels so gentle on the skin.I am 38 and have combination skin that is prone to breakouts. This mask soothes and helps to heal any breakouts and seems to speed up the healing while making my skin look more radiant and beautiful. I even feel confident enough to go out without foundation after using this mask.SIDE NOTE: While this product is a HOLY GRAIL product that had become a staple in my skin care routine, the Bareminerals Blemish Ready Acne Treatmet Serum was a TOTAL FAIL for me. I did a test patch on the right side of my face in a area I normally never get breakouts... and I broke out SO HORRIBLY only in the area where I did the test patch. I read other reviewers who had the same horrible experience, which is why I did the test patch first « less" - bareminerals.com user
"I have two masks that are staples in my routine: the Herbivore AHA/BHA mask and this Tata Harper Purifying Mask.I prefer to use this mask immediately after using my microdermabrasion device. It helps to soothe the slightly sensitive skin, and I feel that the product can penetrate better with the dead skin gone. I have normal/oily combo skin with the occasional breakout (typically hormonal).The dusty rose colour is pretty in the jar but looks slightly odd once on the face. As it dries quite fast (especially once the jar is mostly used up), I have to work quick to spread the product. It dries completely in about 10 minutes but I like to leave on for ~30 minutes up to an hour. I don't like to waste product and apply a thick layer like the instructions say...I just use enough to cover my skin in an even-ish layer.The scent is herbal and slightly gingery...it's hard to describe, but it reminds me of something from my childhood, possibly an ointment or cream that a family member used to use. It's not unpleasant of course, but comforting to me.After rinsing off, my skin is brighter and smoother and the redness from the microdermabrasion is gone. I have not had any negative reactions to this product, and although super super pricey, one jar lasted me at least 15 uses. If you average that out, a single use costs no more than your typical sheet mask at Sephora. I see this more as a maintenance mask, than an emergency mask (which is what my Herbivore mask is for!)I bought the full sized jar in September last year and just used it up last month. I still have a small deluxe jar left from a Sephora Favorites set. Once that's gone, I will probably repurchase! « less" - Sephora user

Purify your skin with the activated charcoal of tree hut exfoliating mud mask. The kaolin draws out impurities while the exotic black sand exfoliates to smooth and revitalize the appearance of dull skin.
"I am so happy I took the risk and ordered this set! I had been going back and forth watching videos and reading reviews on this line (not just these products), and thought this would be a great set to start with! And I was right! The Cleanser is perfect for my morning/night routine when I’m not using my cleansing scrubs, and I use it with my konjac sponge. It’s so clean and effective and a little goes a long way. The mask is my favorite Exfoliating mask everrrr! I actually traded in my Peter Thomas Roth sulfur mask (most recent mask) for this! It’s effective and doesn’t cause a harsh reaction. The day and night cream is THE BEST EVER! This cream is a game changer and possibly my holy grail face cream. I have oily skin, and this is light, yet still hydrating for my skin and has amazing anti-aging and good-for-you ingredients. Since using this cream (and possibly due to incorporating these three products in my skincare regimen), any slight breakouts, redness and rough texture has all dissipated and my skin is still getting better. I’ve used this set for a month now, and still have plenty left. I know that I would probably still have some left when my next auto-delivery order comes. This is by far one of my favorite purchases on QVC ever! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="-1758972347581533044-full" data-show="-1758972347581533044-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>" - QVC user

"I was really scared to use this product at first. I have really sensitive dry skin and some masks and facial cleaners can be very irritating to my face. But all that aside, this product was AMAZING. It felt kinda weird when I put it on at first but what is so good about it is the after effects! I had 3 huge pimples on my face and a few small bumps around my mouth and chin. After washing this product off my face I immediately saw a difference in the acne! It was not puffy, less red and my face seemed more smooth. I woke up the next day and it looked even better! My acne was gone! I mean its not completely gone but gone enough that you don't feel like people are looking at your acne when you talk and you can actually hide with a little concealer.

"I have suffered with acne since 6th grade. I have suffered from oily skin that would cause small pimples to cover my face and made it look at if I had a rash all over my face. I tried everything- every acne face wash you could think of, I received topical treatments from dermatologists, I tried natural faces washes, I even stopped eating sugar and diary as well as was allergy tested to see if any of it was connected to my acne. I was recommend the Clinique Acne Solution by a close friend and was hesistant... I had tried many four step acne washes and sets from many other companies and didn't have much luck. I was comfortable with my routine and was very scared to try anything new knowing I had a likely chance of making my face worse. I decided to take a chance and try it out. I used the foam wash along with the clarifying lotion followed by the all over clearing treatment, I covered zits with the clinical clearing gel, and finished up by using moisturizing gel (not part of the acne line) one night (hesistant about there being so many steps) and woke up to my face dramatically changed, you could clearly see my acne healing. I was so shocked! I continued to use all these products morning and night and had new skin by the third day! Unlike many face washes it did not make my face irritated nor dry (as I suffered with dry skin flakes and redness as washing my face for hours), it automatically made my face tones more even and calmed down my face dramatically. I would recommend this product to anyone with acne and am a true believer in this acne line. No face wash has had the same effect and has made me feel like a whole new person. I no longer worry about people looking at my face in each conversation, or looking like I have a constant sunburn- this product is truly great! « less" - clinique.com user
"I got this as a sample from ulta and i used it a few nights later. After it was all on my face it started to kinda tingle/I felt a burning sensation in a few spots. After about 10 mins i washed it all off my skin was kinda red and splotchty but went away that night. I have super sensitive skin but the ladies at clinique said thats what it does it draws out all the gunk in the pores and face. It might break people out but thats how this stuff works. The next day my skin was clearing up from a bad breakout/dry skin problems and was baby soft smooth and really getting flawless!!! They also have a facial cleanser thats charcoal also i would use that before the mask. I will def be buying the full size ASAP!!!!" - ulta user
"I have been using Lancer Skincare Clarifying Detox Mask with Green Tea + 3% Sulfur for about a month. I have PCOS so cystic acne and combo skin is just part of the deal. This mask does dry out your skin, so if your acne is caused by oil, this is a great option. The directions state that you should only use the product once a week until your skin adjusts to the dryness. However, as my skin changes so quickly during my cycle, I decided to only stick to once a week. It does tingle, and if you had exceptionally dry skin, I could see that it could be uncomfortable. But overall it worked for me, and I will continue to use it to dry out my skin during the extreme oily days!" - sephora user

As for any imperfections, it eases the redness and pain associated witth blemishes. Also, it is not like other masks that cause you to break out. No Break Outs! This mask is very gentle but effective. To use, simply put the mask on, wait 5-10 minutes and wash off with tepid water. You will feel beautiful and invigorated. Happy Shopping! " - Lancôme user
"This mask is life changing. I do masks - of all kinds — all the time so when a mask stands out, it is a big deal to me! And I can’t stop recommending this mask to people! My roommates and my sister have all tried it and loved it! The first time I used it, I thought it would just change colors in its own, but after rereading the instructions I realized you have to “activate” (lol because duh, the name) the mask by rubbing it. So what I like to do is put it on and leave it on for a few minutes, rub in a circular motion but making sure to keep an even layer on, then leaving it on for 5-8ish minutes longer. My skin is glowinnnnnng, like don’t need highlighter and my foundation and skin are reflecting light. And it feels so clean and my pores are basically non existent after using this mask, which is a big deal for me because I feel like my pores are so big you can see into my soul. I use this two or three times a week, and found that to be the perfect amount for my skin! For reference I have normal to dry skin, large pores and some redness. This is a great way to start adding vitamin C into your routine! Also, I received this product complimentary for sampling purposes but all opinions are my own and I would will use my own money to repurchase! « less" - Sephora user
"This is the first skincare product I've actually repurchased. I'm a chronic product-jumper, meaning I almost never buy the same product twice and am always on the lookout for something better. Well, there's nothing better than this mask. Yes, it's pricey, but in this aspect, you get what you pay for. I'm relatively young (23) but I have problematic skin. I have extremely combination skin that goes from an oil slick on my nose to dry and flaky between my eyes and around my mouth. I am also extremely sensitive and break out in hives when exposed to artificial fragrances or really intensive treatments. I've been using Glamglow twice a week for about a month and I've seen a HUGE difference in my skin quality. While I'm still hunting for something to clear up all my cystic acne on my chin (my next investment will be a Clarisonic), I would say this mask has cleared up my acne by 80%. The only patch of acne I have left is the super severe cystic acne, and realistically, I don't think any mask could completely eradicate that. In addition to calming my acne down, this mask has also dramatically reduced the amount of oil on my face. You can literally see it working and vacuuming out all the oil as it dries. Whenever I use it, my nose literally looks like the surface of the moon with all the craters from my pores! Other reviewers have complained about the scent, but I actually LOVE the scent. It smells herbal and it's not strong at all. I think it's very pleasant. To give a completely honest review, there are some minor issues I have with this product that don't even matter in the long run because the results are so worth it. My first complaint is probably due more to my sensitive skin issues. I've found that my face gets REALLY itchy as it dries. Most times I don't make it the full 20 minutes because the itching is too unbearable. This problem goes away as soon as I rinse it off though, which brings me to my second issue. This mask is kind of difficult to rinse off. It's not impossible and you won't have to scrub your face raw, but it still takes a bit of time. Because there are bits of eucalyptus and charcoal in the mask itself, expect to get little chunks stuck in your washcloth. I've found the easiest way to deal with this is just get in the shower and rinse your face off in there. All the bits go down the drain and it's MUCH easier to rinse off. Overall, aside from a few minor inconveniences, this is truly a miracle product. If you're hesitant because of the price and you live near a Sephora, PLEASE at least go get a sample! This is the best investment I've made so far in my skin (that might change once I get my Clarisonic!) <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user

"This mask gave me immediate results: super clean pores, smaller pores and brighter face tone. I'm not a huge fan of masks but this one was very easy for me to use, although I'm a very lazy person. It only takes 3 minutes, it dries very fast, and it washes off very easily and cleanly! I've tried a Glam Glow mask but they were pretty abrasive to my sensitive skin, took too much time to wait until I washed it off (I wanted to take a nap), and it took way too much time and effort to scrub it off my face. If you notice some dirty pores that are so tiny that you can't clean easily, or you notice your face tone is a bit darker in some places like your nose, this mask seriously gives you immediate results on the first try! The price is also great because I'm sure I can get many uses out of one bottle - probably will last me at least a few months. If you're skeptical, I'd say ask for a sample and see if it works on you because it is supposed to give you immediate results." - sephora user
"Hi so i decided to purchase a face mask from origins and see what the fuss is about and saw a limited edition gift set; clear improvement and Drink up masks and also the modern friction exfoliator for £30 AND a cute facial brush.So it all came in a pretty gift box this morning,well done origins 10/10 for presentation!Now just want to give you some background info - got dry skin at moment on cheeks and around nose and was struggling to find a decent face mask.The ones I was trying were leaving cheeks more dry and skin felt tight :(So I Tried the clear improvement charcoal few hours ago and washed it off whilst semi dry, as didn't want to leave it on for too long as my skin gets all dry when mud/clay type masks have been left on till fully dry.I washed off and thought hmmm this feels good,no tingles or flakiness or dry cheeks.Then really wanted to try the exfoliator on aswell but was worried this will definitely dry my cheeks as I have already just used the mask,but thought what the heck lets try!This smelt so lush and I did exactly what it said and rubbed the creamy formula in circular movements and lathered with water and washed it off. Touched my skin and woooo nice texture no breakouts or red marks or dry feeling on cheeks,Now let me tell you,I bought glamglow back in December which is £50 a pot and has rave reviews but did no wonders to my skin,if anything it dried it out more than it already was!Whilst writing this review I touched cheeks again just now and NO dry /tight feeling on cheeks!I am 35 and never found any masks to suit my skin,must say I am a happy bunny right now and cant wait to try overnight mask,will try in few days as don't want to over do it!

"I'm absolutely a skin care junkie. I try out so many products if I've researched them or then ingredients look right- however I bought this pod on a whim- and anticipating them to be good for traveling as they're disposable and "single use"- you receive a solid amount of product in each pod. Definitely more than enough for two maybe 3 uses. Keep in mind that since they are clay based I'd try to use it all the same week you open it. The results were rewarding as well! I was noticing a break out on the horizon the other night and wanted to test this mask out. After cleansing and exfoliating my face I applied this and unlike a lot of clay masks it glided on my skin so nicely it almost felt moisturizing due to its rich, velvety texture. It was totally dry well before the 40 minute show I watched was over and I removed it with a washcloth that I soaked in warm water. I toned my skin with organic witch hazel and applied moisturizer and eye cream. My skins color, tone and texture instantly looked more balanced. The next morning, the breakout I detected was totally gone. My pores were definitely tighter and my skin still appeared more balance in color and texture and tone! For sure worth a shot and it will help any skin type that struggles with breakouts or tone! (I have normal to dry skin type and very prone to adult acne) « less" - Target user
"Yes. It's true. I am skeptical about literally every skincare product that aims acne, since over time I tend to build a tolerance to it. All of them contain salicylic acid. This however, is SO different from the rest of the crowd. I am a changed woman. My acne troubles were not THAT bad to begin with, a few here and there, small breakouts if I'm under a lot of stress or have bad diet, or maybe got lazy and didn't take off my makeup too many nights in a row. Well, thatnks to this I no longer need makeup. At least not coverup or foundation or anything of the sort. My skin is as clear as a baby's bottom. I haven't had any flareups since mid March, about two weeks after I started using it. For smaller stuff if you feel something coming up, just use it as a spot treatment the night before and it makes the whole process a lot shorter and significantly less painful. Other than that, this also had a small effect on fading recent acne scars. If you have any long standing acne scars it probably won't do much for those. Sulfur is a drying agent. It works by encouraging the top layer of your skin to shed. So yeah you may see a few pimples pop up after the first few times you use it. But it happens less frequently as you use it regularly. I use it once or twice a week 5 minutes before I get into the shower. Moisturize as usual. Words of caution: -Never let it dry on your skin. It's too drying and letting it dry will ruin your skin, and probably cause premature wrinkles. Hence the 5 minutes before shower routine. -Spread a very thin layer and FAR away from your eyes. Try not to let it get into any of your facial orifices it burns. A lot. - It didn't smell that horrible to me and that doesn't last long anyway so I don't know what some other reviewers are talking about. It's not that bad. Would 100% buy it again and I cannot say that about any other acne product tbh. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user

"I was at first hesitant to purchase this mask. The small size of the bottle vs. higher price made me expect a lot out of my experience. This product lived up to (and perhaps surpassed) my expectations. I have very dry skin that needs lots of gentle exfoliation and lots of moisture to stay smooth. Other masks offer either the moisture or the exfoliation, but never both. The Josie Maran Mud Mask offers both. I use this mask two times a week in place of my daily exfoliating cleanser, rubbing it all over my face in small circles to gently exfoliate and then let it set for 10 minutes while I'm in the bath. It dries up, but does not leave my skin feeling tight or dry like the many other mud masks I've tried. Washing the mask off is easy, too. My skin gets the daily exfoliation it needs, and is left feeling super soft and moisturized. Another Josie Maran product to add to my "ride-or-die" favorites!! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>" - Sephora user
"I have combination sensitive skin and after accidentally using a chemical peel on my face after being sent the wrong item and it destroyed my skin. It was ready blotchy and burning for hours and then I remembered that this mask helps with redness and irritation and it definitely does! My face stopped burning and calmed down massively I was amazed that it helped my skin so much after the first application! It dries straight away and is so quick. I have enlarged pores and they were refined so much that you could barely see them. It's so hard to find skin care that refines my pores, decreases my oily t-zone and helps my dry sensitive skin. It is quite pricey for how small the tub is but a little bit goes a long way and it's so worth it. Will definitely buy this again!" - beautybay user
A mud-based, peel-off face mask designed to tighten the appearance of skin.
"This is a new HG product for me. My all-time favorite mud mask was Wei's Golden Root Purifying mud mask, which is sadly no longer offered by Sephora. This product is nearly a match except that it smells way better. This mask is meant for people with acne prone skin, but regardless this mask clarifies congested pores without drying the skin (that's the squalane working for you) and leaves your skin fresh and BABY SOFT. I love the herbal scent of the tea tree as well, and it makes the whole experience very restorative. One word of warning- it did burn a little for the first few seconds around the edges of my nose, which was in recovery from our dry winter and retinol use. It wasn't bad and only lasted for a little bit, but if you have sensitive skin I would recommend trying to get a sample of it first to see how you would react. I received this product free for testing purchases, but I will absolutely be buying more when this runs out (I already have it lined up for the next VIB sale)" - sephora user
"In the past two years despite drinking 1 gallon of water a day and getting my liver tested my skin around my nose, face and chin is extremely dry, flaky and red. Went to numerous dermatologist who stated I have eczema. Never wore makeup and always moisturized my skin after showering and cleaning my face but it never helped. This product has become heaven sent. I uses it every other day and it has cleared my dry skin, removed blackhead and whiteheads on my face. No longer have red patchy skin and flaky skin because of this product. I do follow up with 100% aloe vera juice and Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel extra dry skin that I used before this product. Now my skin is back radiant, clear and soft. Please Freeman don't ever change the ingredients in this product. Don't fix something that isn't broken. Im Rihanna's complexion if they helps you with skin tones for purchase with red and olive undertones in certain places." - walmart user
A pore-refining mask with super-powered Australian botanicals.
"I received the Garnier SkinActive Ultra Clean 3 in 1 Face Wash, Scrub and Mask With Charcoal to review and try for free and this was honestly amazing. I am so glad I got to try this out because I found a new product I actually truly love and will for sure continue to use. Most face washes and facial items make my face break out in almost a red rash type thing when using but this was super gently on my skin and did not irritate it at all. It left my face feeling super soothed, clean, and really refreshed. The last charcoal wash I used almost felt like it was burning my skin when using and this one really was quite the opposite. A huge plus to it was it didnt have a horrible scent like some I have used in the past. I actually didnt mind this and liked it. " - Garnier user
"As someone who has skin so dry it physically hurts to wash, I thought my days of masking were over. My dermatologist recently started me on a high strength retinol medication for my adult acne. I had to give away all of my holy grail mask because they would burn and peel my already flaky skin. I just happened to see this in the store, after glancing at the ingredients walked up to the register with high hopes. I love this mask more than I can explain. It is a mud mask that does NOT dry down, which means the oils stabilize the clay ingredients so they do not dry out your skin. It is an awful yellow color (more than likely due to the kaolin clay) and is pretty scent free, which I love. I rinse my face after 10 minutes and my skin feels balanced and soft, something it has not been for the last 3 months. I am amazed and super glad this caught my eye (I have 10 sitting in my vanity as we speak). My only gripe is they don't offer a 'full size' of this, but I will continue to repurchase the packets until some other miracle product decides to take its place." - ulta user
