Facts about my skin:
Skin-tone: Olive skin tone
Skin-type: Oily acne prone
Problems: Cystic acne on the chin and cheeks, large pores in the t-zone, and the odd wrinkle
Hydroxy acids: This blend of malic, lactic, tartaric, citric, and glycolic acids works synergistically to gently exfoliate dead skin cells.
Kaolin and bentonite clays: These natural Earth clays help clarify the skin, absorb excess oil and reduce shine.
Aloe and chamomile: With clinically-proven anti-inflammatory properties, this botanical soothes and calms the skin
1. As a mask treatment 2-3 times a week
2. As a spot treatment if I feel a breakout may surface - for this use I leave it on my skin overnight and rinse it off the next day.
This mask works by keeping breakouts at bay, and really improves the texture of my skin. After rinsing it off my skin feels hydrated and soft calm. Clay masks can sometimes be very drying - I found this mask to be very gentle, and does not irritate my skin. I sometimes use it two nights in a row if my skin is feeling extra oily or if I have some breakouts surfacing. Has it replaced my Pro-Derm Micro Peel Masque? No, I use this as an lighter exfoliator.
If you are in the market for a face mask for acne, or just to gently exfoliate your skin I recommend this mask. I have had it for 3+ months and even with using it a few times a week I am only about half way through the jar.
