I love this stuff!! I first tried this years ago while staying with my sister, since then I have kept some in my own bathroom. It not only is effective in tightening your pores, reducing break outs and black heads but it smells good and is very relaxing. It is something I like to use when I am feeling stressed, it allows me that much need down time. I will lock myself in my bathroom, turn on the radio, light a few of my candles and treat myself. I wash my face and neck with soap and water and then apply a layer of this masque, it goes on green, once it dries it turns an olive, brownish looking color. You can feel your skin tighten immediately, it dries in about 20 to 30 minutes. All you do then is rinse it off with warm water and your skin feels so smooth, it is like a temporary face lift and it just makes me feel better. I try to do this once a week and it does keep my complexion looking and feeling better and so much smoother.
