I use this once a week for my acne prone skin and rosacea. Sometimes when I try out new products or tools like the Clarisonic, it irritates my skin so much that it remains red, hot, and inflamed for the rest of the week. Even after a good night of sleep I still woke up to irritated skin! However, when I put this mask on, it took away about half of the redness for that past week, in 20 minutes. One tub also lasts a long time. You just need to apply a thin layer and even when I use it 2-3 times a week, 1 tub lasted me about 4 months. Lastly, this mask leaves my skin very moisturized, smooth, and soft after each use!

I really do not understand how you go without this mask?????
mk. well, I stumbled upon the mario badescu site on accident. i have red reuudy skin on my cheeks, and am always looking for a product that will clean my face well, not clog my pores, and take away my inflamation, and this is exactly what The Azulene Calming mask does. It's incredible!!! before I recieved the samples, I researched the ingrediant balsm peru which is found in this product. And I found was that is was a horrible irritant. I'll I can say is WRONG!!!!!!! this product does NOT irritate or cause any redness, or inflammation! IT TAKES IT AWAY!!!!! This prodct is Great, and I'm definitly buying it! It works fabulously well with anyones skin!!!! Thank-You MB!!!!!!

I no longer need to see my skin doctor for inflamation I use this stuff!!! it REALLY DOES WONDERS
I am 29, I do not eat properly which is the cause of some of my inflamation on my face either acne a pimple here and there or above my lip due to my extreme body heat I get a sort heat rash. I have dry skin A topic and dehydrate very easy. I use a mint mask from my skin doctor after I use this mask. It REALLLLLLLYYYYYYY does sooze the skin, gives a nice cooling effect. Very little of this mask ( I use a mini face spatula to spread it) goes a long long way. I put it over only the areas that seem a little red from acne or from me being dehydrated or that are inflamed from heat due to the summer etc and I cannot tell you the 15 minutes to wear this makes the difference. I read all the ingredients in everything I buy becuase I do have sensitive skin and 8 out of 10 of the masks that Mario Badescu sells are the best thing for ur skin...this mask is great for anyone who has dry skin, inflamed skin or esp those suffering from hormal monthly breakout or inflamation as I do...It makes the difference between feeling aweful and feeling better about yourself when you suffer from inflamation due to body heat and Dry Skin A topic and being able to wear lip gloss and not worry if your face looks blotchy and red! This is a mask I will NEVER due without the Kaolin and the Zinc Oxide help hold in moisture and the balsam peru calms.....the wheat starch also calms the only thing I wish were not in it is the talc but I can live with that
