Collapse
What does it do?
Balances skin by visibly absorbing excess oil without over-drying or making skin feel tight. The clay’s gentle drawing action helps dislodge debris from congested pores while soothing plant extracts help visibly calm skin. Rinses easily, leaving skin soft, matte, and smooth. Best of all, it is free of stress-causing ingredients, such as menthol, peppermint, or alcohol, which can make oily skin worse.

How to use

Use on clean skin. Apply a generous layer all over the face and neck (if needed). Let dry for 10-15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with tepid-to-warm water. May be used as often as needed. Those with oily to very oily skin can use this mask several times per week, while those with normal to slightly oily skin can use it less frequently (once or twice per week, for example).

great mask for combination/oily skin

5

I have a ridiculously oily t-zone and normal skin on other area of my face. I use this on a weekly basis as an optional treatment to even out my skin texture, specially my oily zones. It's a really great product, my skin is not sensitive, therefore it doesn't burn or irritate when I put it on and leave it in. I always protect my skin from sun exposure during the day, so my skin has stayed pretty tough and clear due to sunscreen layering. I wash and exfoliate my face before using this mask, and then rinse and re exfoliate to get the extra bits off my skin, it works fine without any issues. Overall a great product.

Love this mask!

5

I have combination skin that's rosacea- and acne-prone. I tried this product as a sample and immediately ordered the full-size. When I applied the mask, I had several pimples that were red and inflamed because I'd been poking at them (my bad). My skin looked blotchy and I was looking for a quick way to calm it down. This mask was just the ticket! After I rinsed it off, my skin looked noticeably cleaner, smoother, and more even-toned. My pimples were less red and less noticeable. I put my moisturizer and makeup on, and my skin was glowing for the rest of the day. Definitely adding this to my repertoire.

improves blackheads

I use this twice weekly. I haven't felt any irritating, stinging or redness at all with this mask, and I have very sensitive skin. I definitely notice a difference in my skin after using this mask. My pores look smaller and my blackheads are way less noticeable. I love this product.

My next buy!

I ordered two samples based off reviews here from others. I needed to make sure this mask wouldn't aggravate my sensitive/combination skin. It's advisable to order a sample if you fear your skin might have issues with the tingling action on this. I use a mask once a week to help alleviate oiliness in my T-zone. While I did experience the tingling effect many reviewers noted, it wasn't unpleasant and didn't continue past a few moments. I left the mask on 10 minutes and rinsed it off. It rises off more easily than my usual mask does. It left my skin soft and supple. This will be my next purchase!

Great Clay Mask

I use this product once a week on my oily skin. It's the best clay mask I've ever used. I have sensitive skin but don't experience any irritation. This is great for anyone dealing with excess oil and enlarged pores.

100% perfection

5

If you have oily skin, you need this mask in your life! I have placed 3 orders with PC in the last couple weeks and I got this mask as my free sample in every order. I loved it so much that after I tried it the first time I immediately placed an order for the full size. I'm not going to lie, this mask has a burning sensation when I first put it on, and for about 10-15 min after. I leave it on a little longer than directed because it seems like it takes more time for it to dry. The first time I tried it and the burning started, I thought oh no my skin is going to be so red, but it wasn't at all and after I washed it off my face was so smooth and matte, I was hooked. I've been using it daily without any dryness, redness or peeling. I've even been using it overnight on any stubborn acne spots that I have. I seriously can't recommend this enough for oily skin people, I just wish I could get a bigger tube.

GREAT HELP FOR SEBACEOUS FILAMENTS

5

I only use the mask every 4 to 5 days on my T-zone and on the sides of the nose where I have enlarged pores. (but I know someone with very oily skin who can use it daily ) I apply a very very generous amount of it, and I can tell as soon as I rinse it that my sebaceous filaments on my nose aren't as visible, I know I can't get rid of them but this mask does help to make my nose look cleaner and feel smoother. I have very dry skin on my jawline and normal cheeks , so I absolutely STAY CLEAR from these areas. I have never had a problem from it but I started using it only after using exclusively PC products for my whole routine. I can't say it is THE product that helped me, but I can , by experience, say that it is a GREAT product for occasional use and to complete my routine. Yes it could cause a little "stinging" sensation but it isn't terrible or even unpleasant, and that saying that my skin is very finicky and will let me know if something is too much for me. Although I didn't notice this sensation the first time I applied it, but the most recent time that probably it was too soon after the previous application. I did notice that my skin was red after rinsing it one time that I used a wash cloth to remove it, so word of advice: BE PATIENT/GENTLE WHILE RINSING IT because it does get completely dry, so if you see "irritation or redness" it might be the way you were rubbing your skin to remove it, not the mask itself. I just purchase the full size, I am very pleased with the price and size of the tube. Another home run !

Holy Grail Mask!!!

5

Okay, to be honest, I have yet to purchase the full-size of this product (but will be doing so soon!), but it is already a holy grail mask for me. Let me explain. I purchased sample sizes of this mask and absolutely love it. It is hard to put into words how light my face feels now that all the gunk is out of it. I didn't even know how heavy my face was until I put on this mask. Now that it has worked its magic on all of my impurities, I feel so much cleaner and like a new person! It is not going to get rid of all of your acne on the spot, but it will soothe any spots that you already have and improve the appearance of them dramatically. I have sensitive, oily, acne-prone skin, and this did not make me feel irritated at all! However, immediately after I took off the mask (after ten minutes, give or take), my face was bright red, but it quickly went down. It didn't hurt at all, which is a plus for me, since all the masks I have previously tried have burned my skin. Although my skin was initially red, it faded after around three seconds. If you're wondering whether or not to purchase this product, I would buy some samples first to make sure it is for you. But I would definitely give it a try - it will make your face feel fresher and more alive!

One use down and obsessed!

I just used the mask and wow! Many of my blackheads were gone! Pores smaller! Skin softer! It did sting while it dried, but not badly. I literally just took it off and begged my husband to let me try it on his nose. I can't wait to see his results!
