The good stuff:
- Lots of product
- Easy to apply
- Leaves skin feeling clean
- Smooths skin and improves tone/complexion
- Minimizes pores
- Seemed to have a whitening effect on my skin?
- It's kind of like applying toothpaste on your face xD
- Did not seem to help with pimples
- Did not help reduce oil (not that it said it was supposed to but...)
- Made my skin a little itchy in places I did not remove well
My take: I've been using this mask every night for about 5 days now and I'm pretty much loving it =) It's kind of weird applying it though since it really feels like you're smearing toothpaste all over your face! It's green, thick, minty and sticky xD It dries up fast and tightens the skin quickly. After 15 minutes, I'd wipe it off with warm water and a cloth and the results are immediately apparent. My skin was smoothed, soft, and glowy (did get itchy spots in places that I was careless to wipe off good... so be thorough!) After a few days of using it, I think I notice a whitening effect . . . maybe it's in my head but my skin looks lighter to me xP probably cause my tone and complexion is really improved as well! Also minimized my pores some.
I did have one irritating pimple though, and it did not really dry it out or minimize it at all. Also, since it's a clay based mask, I was hoping it would help with my new oilyness, but it didnt =( So I'm still on the hunt for a better oil-reducing mask! Besides that, my skin seems to be improving daily =) It's veeeery smooth. I think after awhile though I won't use it as much since my skin will probably start to tolerate its effects.
Would I repurchase: YES! It's so cheap but I won't have to repurchase for a long time since there's so much product!
Looks, feels & smells like toothpaste :P
