If you are looking for something that will not only exfoliate, tone, tighten, AND prevent cystic acne, you are in the right place. I have had horrible cystic acne along my chin line and in my cheek area for years. I was even using a 100.00 bottle of prescription medicine for it. When my medicine ran out, all I had was this mask. This mask did a better job than the medicine did. I even stopped taking it to see if it indeed was the mask. One week after ceasing to use the mask, they indeed came back. My skin has drastically changed since using this product. I love it. I am hooked now! The best 18.00 I have ever spent!

Cucumber Tonic Mask
Tried this for the first time not a big fan of masks - it did not tighten up like others do and is easy to rinse off. Left my skin feeling smooth.

I have always been hesitant of masks because I have combination skin and the non-oily sections dry out really easily if I am not careful. Not a problem at all with this mask: it does not dry out my face, and it minimizes my pores and refreshes my skin.
Definitely a keeper.

After using this for the first time, I found my face to look very refreshed and renewed. I have continued to add it to my weekly regime once or twice a week for the past 3 months and it has continued to absorb excess oils and keep my face clear and refreshed without drying. I highly recommend!

Oh So Nice!
I love this mask! It is so refreshing just leaves my skin feeling clean, not dry. I have combo skin, which tends to be oilier in the summer months, but then I can be quite dry in the winter months. I use this mask about 3 times a week and my skin stays pretty clear. It has become on of my essential products.

Not only does this mask cleans pores and helps with acne, but it works wonders with dullness. Every time I feel my skin looks dull, I use this mask and my face emerges looking really refreshed and clean as if I vacationed in the tropics and spent a day at the spa.

Effective, gentle mask
The Cucumber Tonic Mask by MB is unlike any mask I have tried before. I have extremely sensitive skin and this mask does not irritate or dry out my skin. It helps minor acne problems and has greatly diminshed acne scars and red areas on my skin. Thanks Mario Badescu :

my favorite mask!!!
I have tried many brands of masks with various ingrediants. This mask is my favorite. I love the smell so much. It is so refreshing and envigorating on my skin. It works so well to remove the oil and keep my skin feeling so wonderful. This is one of my top five favorite Mario Badescu products.

I got this mask as a sample and was afraid to try it because have super sensitive skin. I'm kicking myself for waiting so long!!! This mask helped clear my pores and made my skin feel great. I'm going to be ordering the full size jar and adding it to my routine.

This mask truly tighten the pores. I saw very visible result after one use. It's not terribly drying either. I just felt very clean after washing it off with warm water. A+++

great for ur pores and pampering
The cucumber extract is the last ingredient so really there is not that much actual CUCUMBER in it...however the other ingredients are great KAOLIN is really what gives most of MD masks a kick...>Kaolin is great for ur skin...the cucumber extract added ...gives the mask a nice CLEAN FRESH smell.......I have used all of the masks...and this one that tightens my pores more than the flower and tonic so I only use it in patches where needed....so for example I will put azulune where I am inflamed, the ginko where I am super dry and strawberry or orange on my chin under my lip and on my forehead and the cucumber on my nose to get rid of all the oil and tighten my pores and the flower and tonight on all of my cheeks which also tightens and draws out impurities.
However I also use this all over my face becuase onece a week it is really great for your skin but make sure to moisturize or use something like keroplast cleansing lotion.....
this is really a great mask....few ingredients and zinc and kaolin are great!@!

A powerful clean
Because this mask provides my skin with a more intense cleansing than does the Flower & Tonic mask, I only use it when my face feels as though it needs a deep cleaning.
