My Opinion:
I've used it twice a week for three weeks and I have noticed a major difference in my skin. I have combination skin and alot of times I have the frustrating problems with products either making my skin too oily or drying it out. Luckily for me, this mask didn't to either of those things! I washed my face with my normal skin cleanser and then rinsed with warm water and applied the Balancing Clay Mask. I left it on for about 10 minutes and then rinsed it with warm water and splashed my face with cold water. I noticed my skin felt soft and really refreshed. There wasn't any drying or flaking at all!

After the second week of use, I noticed my skin was alot more even in tone, I had zero new break outs, my current breakout was lessening, and my t-zone seemed to be less oily. I personally found the product worked really well for me and it was easy to do twice every week for 10 minutes. This one gets two thumbs up from me, I loved it! It definitely made some impressive improvements in my skin!
