This a mask that contains clay and antioxidants that will clean and brighten your skin, also the antioxidant will help to shrink your pores. To use it just apply a thick layer all over your face avoiding the eye area and let it dry and when it’s ready just peel it off from your skin.
This is a good product but a little pricey and you will need more than you normally would use with other masks to obtain an even black layer on your face. The scent is not irritating and the mask feels good on the skin but is a little messy when you try to clean any residue of the product.
I have tried this a couple of times and I think it’s easy to remove, just rub an edge and pull. My face looks bright and clean which is the result wanted but I don’t see any reduction of my pores or less oil production, also these results are not a permanent thing. It’s not harsh on my skin at all but every skin is different so try it first on a little part to see how it affects you.
Now, the purifying black strips are nothing extraordinary, they work equal as the ones you can buy at any drugstore so it’s not necessary at least for me to spend $28 for 12 strips if I can save money and get another brand that works and is way less expensive.
Anyway, I love Sephora because they have little sets of products that you can try without buying the normal bottle and return it if you don’t like it. But I believe this is a good pricey clay mask, I don’t see the results other people claim to have using this and of course it’s because we have different skin types and this is just not for me, so I prefer to use my $34 in a different brand that maybe will work better for my skin type.
