What I liked about the product?

I absolutely loved the end result of this product. As my pores and blackheads appeared significantly reduced.

The clay mask managed to absorb excess oil from my t-zone creating a matte and clear complexion.

However I didn’t notice any glow, my face just looked matte and clear.

What I didn’t like about the product?

One of the first things I noticed about this face mask was how fragrant the product was and how the smell was very potent and distracting.

Once applied the tingling sensation hits you like none other, my eyes began to water luckily I didn’t get a reaction from this product as I have sensitive skin.

Once dried it takes literally a lifetime to wash off. I would recommend to washing it off when it’s still wet on the face.

Additionally, when washing it off the product gets everywhere. The best place to wash this face mask off is in the shower.

Appearance:

Dark with tea leaves

Texture:

Thick clay mixed with green tea leaves

Would I buy it again?

No, absolutely not!!! It’s far to expensive and the process of applying the mask on and then washing it off is a hassle.
