Hands down my favorite face mask, its gentle compared to other face masks thats so tingly on the face. I have dry sensitive skin and this doesn't irritate me. I only use it once every 2weeks or when I feel I'm going to have a breakout and my skin is not in its best condition, this will instantly controls it so amazingly. Love it so much, another holy grail item for me. ❤️2 months ago
I got a small tube of this mask as a sample from a previous BeautyMNL purchase. I love that it's easy to use, spreads on the skin smoothly, and not difficult to remove either. I use a soft face towel and lukewarm water to take the product off my face. There's a little bit of a sting but I like that because it makes me think that the product is working. My skin feels clean and fresh afterwards. I didn't see any noticeable changes on my pores though, but maybe I have to get the regular size and use it for a longer period.2 months ago
This charcoal mask is my HG mask. It stings a little when I first apply it, but it quickly goes away. I use this after a nice long workout at the beginning of the week, and I feel like it really clears my pores of any impurities and oil after a good sweat. It dries pretty quickly, although it does take a bit of effort to wash off, depending on how thick you slather it on so I usually do it during my shower to avoid making a mess. Because it is a charcoal mask, it does dry my skin a little so I always make sure to moisturize after use. I'm on my second tube already, and I'm definitely going to keep repurchasing.3 months ago
it acts like power magnets to draw out dirt, impurities, and keep excess oil under control. clogged pores are my biggest problem behind of my blackheads, the porosity of the charcoal and clay combo in Origins's formula keeps pores clear, and ultimately, blemish-free. the mask that can unclog my pores and get rid of those nasty bits, this one helps alot.4 months ago
If you're looking for something that can do wonders for your pimples/acne this is it. It's very tightening when it has dried on your face but after you wash it, your skin is softer and feels cleaner. You will immediately see a difference after you have washed your face. :) It dries your breakouts and removes the gunk out of your pores. You will see your pimples less red and irritated the day after. You can use this also as a spot treatment so you will not strip your face off of its natural oils. I recommend to use this mask at least once a week. Or if your skin needs it. Just make sure to moisturize after masking. I've added this product on my waitlist. Please, BeautyMNL, please make the restocking faster I beg of youuuu :(4 months ago
I had been using this for 6 months now and I really love it. I feel a sting right after applying this mask but the sting disappears after a while. I use this once a week to detox my skin and just like the Original Skin Retexturizing Mask With Rose Clay, it smooths my skin and heals my pimples faster. This one feels a little more drying than the Original Skin Retexturizing Mask With Rose Clay so be sure to moisturize afterwards. I noticed that my skincare products get absorbed more quickly whenever I use this mask. It's expensive but a little goes a long way in using this mask. Definitely will repurchase.5 months ago
