I've heard a bunch of beauty gurus recommend this product, I pretty much agree with their raves, with a few notes. My skin feels nice and fresh when it's washed off, all quenched and renewed. I like this better than the Neutrogena clay mask (similar price point). My skin felt a little tighter right after taking it off, but no noticeable lasting effects so far. I usually feel a little stinging sensation while it's on, but I'm not too concerned - I've experienced that with other masks before and it's always been fine, no redness or anything - just felt like it was working, really. Plus I've been on various skin medications that have made my skin more sensitive, so just be aware that you might feel that if you've been on tetracyclines or accutane. But other than that, I love it, and you definitely can't beat the price!
