I have dry acne prone skin but decided to try a sample of this and I am hooked! It makes my skin so smooth and actually helps with acne without overly drying my skin. It does smell quite lovely too, I would put this mask as my second favorite of all Mario Badescu makes.

BEST MASK EVER!
I tried a few Badescu masks, but this one is my favorite!! If I use it as directed 2-3 times a week, my skin GLOWS. It's smooth and happy, moisturized and a lot of my minimal redness disappears, pores are smaller. I don't usually write too many reviews, but with this product and a few other Badescu ones I had to speak up.

Crucial Step for Clear Skin
Mario Badescu has cleared up my skin yay! but only if I completely follow my regimin, which includes using this mask 2x/week. I don't always feel like waiting around to rinse this off but I know I'll regret it later in the week!

I received this as a sample. After one use I promptly ordered it. The results are beautiful with use of this mask! My skin feels soothed, refreshed, hydrated and clean. The scent is lovely, an added bonus!

This mask smells so good. It looks like a green clay mask but the texture is a little lighter than what I'm used to. Plus there's no "muddy" smelljust a yummy flowery scent that's very natural. I got this as a sample with my order and will definitely be getting the full-size. My skin glowed and was so soft and not dried-out after using this mask.

I just tried this mask for the first time and it really is great! It helped with the "oilier" spot on my face and I managed to throw some on my husband also....he was hesitant but I convinced him it was good for him :-) Well after washing it all off he said "My skin is soooo soft". Would highly recommend it for women...and men!

Pore tightening and skin refining mask
For some reason I was not as "jazzed" to try this mask as I was many of the others. Nothing stood out to me. However, after trying it the first time my skin looked and felt refined and definitely tighter. My t-zone looked much better and smoother. So, it is an effective mask. I did feel a slight tingly sensation until it dried so I would not exfoliate before using this product - what until the next day or at least several hours. I would recommend this for oily skin or an oily t-zone. Another really nice product!

PART OF MY TOP THREE CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT!!!!!
Now I have written other reviews
Azulene is my # 1 bc it calms the skin
Enzyme is my 2nd bc I don't have to worry about using it everyday and drying out my skin so I can be lazy and just throw it on
but THIS MASK IS my # 1 (and 3rd fav) CLEANING and PURIFYING MAKS
I have combination skin and dry skin A topic and every month I get breakouts from my hormones and bc of my dry skin a topic I have to not use this mask all the time bc if I did it would make my skin dry however...when you use it AS INTSTUCTED
The blackhead on my nose...GONE..
the blackheads on the side of my nose ...GONE
the oil deposits around my face......DRYED out ON THERE WAY 2 BEING GONE@!!!!
this mask is really a saviour for my skin in combinatin with the Azulene
before I go out...the Azulene goes on in patches where I am red....which then disappear
then I put on the enzyme mask or the Ginko mask over my entire face while I do my nails.....gives me great rejvinated feeling
then I put this on everwhere except above my lip and around my mouth......and then any oil that thought it was going to stay on my face the entire night....GONE!!!!
I cannot and will not go out with out this mask regime...I photograph AMAZING ....my skin always looks balanced and there is no shine!!!!
and if I am really going to be in photos with my friends all night...I will do another mask either cucumber, strawberry or orange then moisturize and then I am good to go...
if I had to recommend a mask to friends who I have not suckered into going to the spa with me and who would never go...
this is my number # 1 mask gift to give to anyone no matter what their skin type

This is a very nice mask. It is included in the Botanical Beauty Basics package. I highly reccomend it.

I used this mask after I bought cleanser from the drugstore that completely irritated my face. My face was red and bumpy (almost like hives), this mask soothed my face and within a couple days everything was almost back to mormal. Never again will I substitute anything for my Mario Badescu products.

This stuff smells GREAT! The mask does remove the excess oil from your face WITHOUT drying- out your skin.

A nice clean
After I apply a thin layer of this mask to my entire face and leave it on for 10 minutes, my face feels clean, refreshed, and soft.
