    This product is the best thing I have found for clay mask. The awesomeness of it is that my skin clears up, I end up with a fresher look after removing the mask, bright skin and not bumpy.

              Comments about Philosophy Total Matteness Pore-Minimizing & Mattifying Cleanser + Mask:

              I have very oily skin and love almost anything that is a matte finish. After the first time I used this just as a cleanser, my skin felt so soft and no more shine. Perfect for oily skin, I have not used it as a mask yet, but plan to do so!

              It's great as a on e a week wash but was too harsh as a mask. If you have even mildly sensitive skin, this isn't the best choice for you. It definitely does what it says....dries!!

              this product Completely dries out my skin. I asked the Ulta rep for something for oily skin to help with pores and blackheads. but the product as soon as I use it makes my skin feel dry and flaky. it did help some with the pores but the blackheads go no where no matter how much I use. Expensive useless product.

                    Did not work as well as much cheaper products like Neutrogena for oily skin. Not worth the extra money.

                      • Q:

                        I have had the worst, most embarrassing blackheads on my T-Zone, and it's spread out to my cheeks and chin. The pores in those areas are also huge. I have tried nearly everything, I'm getting to the point if not being able to be seen by anyone without a thick layer of foundation on. Please advise. Thanks.

                          total matteness pore-minimizing & mattifying cleanser + mask will help to unclog enlarged, clogged pores. we recommend using this product as a mask 1-2 times per week to notice less visible, clearer pores. you may also enjoy using purity made simple as your daily cleanser, as this will provide toning benefits as well.
