The first time I used it I tried it as a masque which it says to leave on up to 20 minutes.
It smells minty, not overpowering. The texture is like most clay or mud masques, thick and pasty. It works best to rub it in your hands a little before spreading it on your face or it kind of crumbles and falls off.
I made it to 3 minutes and my skin was burning so bad I had to wash it off.
My face was red and fiery for several hours.
If you notice in the ingredient list it contains Tea Tree oil which was to harsh for me to use as a masque.
Since that one time I have been using it as a scrub.
It works wonderfully! It does not dry my skin out or leave it greasy.
After using the Rejuvenating masque as a scrub my face is soft and smooth and feels clean.
I have noticed that my pores appear smaller and I have fewer blackheads.
I will certainly continue using it and see if it completely or at least mostly minimizes my pores.
-It is all natural
-Leaves skin soft and smooth
-I cannot use it as a masque due to the high content of tea Tree
-The Price $30 + shipping for 2oz. is a bit steep for a scrub/masque for me
-The packaging, I'm not fond of dipping my fingers into a jar of thick paste and having it under my nails. I would prefer a squeeze tube.
