Most Helpful Positive Review Leaves skin feeling smooth
I had expected a different texture from this product. I thought it would go on the skin with more opacity (much like their Mint and Lemon Clay Mask), but instead the texture reminds me of a lip scrub. A sugary and slightly runny lip scrub. You really have to work with it if you want to even out the coverage on your face.
As soon as you've laid the mask on your skin, you can feel the mask start working. The warming sensation is definitely a plus. Perhaps it's the activated charcoal pulling out those impurities. Who knows, but it feels great! It says to leave it on for about 5-7 minutes then to gently massage for 1-2 minutes. The first time I used this mask, after a minute of massaging I was like "Okay, I'm over this" but then felt like it was such a waste of the natural exfoliating properties of the sugar in the mask.
So then, I worked out a routine: I put the mask on my face and let it sit there 5-10 minutes before I shower. Once I'm in there, I'll massage my face for a minute to let the sugar crystals exfoliate the nastiness off my face, then I bring it down my neck and onto my body (mostly my arms, chest and back). I mean, the amount of sugar in the mask is not gonna dissolve just on your face alone no matter how much you rub it, so might as well use the remainder on the rest of your skin that may need a good ole scrubbin'. And boy does it leaves my skin feeling soft and clean. Definitely a winner.
Tl;dr: messy + black + sugar = clean, soft skin

Rae from North Carolina
I tried so many different products and methods to get rid of tiny bumps ALL over my forehead and cheeks. To the point I was about to give up until my mom gave me a little sample of this. I didn't have much hope but afterwards noticed those little bumps were going away!! I know you're not supposed to but I've used it 2 days in a row (I'm using a good moisturizer) and those bumps are almost gone!! I'm beyond happy.
Nikki from Nyc
I love the quality of the polishing mask, it removes black spots on my face and neck, it worth the money, my skin is amazing after using it, even my arms are grateful.
I absolutely love this
Dana from Buffalo ny
I tried this product when I noticed my cheeks getting texture. I tried so many products, from murad to kate Somerville stuff and nothing helped. This stuff works so well for my skin. I have very sensitive skin and this left my skin smooth and soft. I noticed my texture is almost gone! I will continue using over high end products any day.
Seashell from Houston, TX
I have nothing negative to say about the performance of this exfoliating mask. I love the way it feels, exfoliating and hydrating at the same time. I gave it 4 stars because it attracted ants to my bath tub. Make sure to rinse this completely out of your sink or bath. The first ingredient is sucrose.
Ronnie from Montana
I feel like it helped smooth out my skin as I have a bumpy chin and forehead. The grains are large and if you have sensitive skin I suggest putting on you freshly cleansed face while it's still wet. Love the smell too.
Karina from Cali
It doesn't work It really doesn't do anything
Not too harsh
rgp from Lawndale, CA
Love this, you can feel it exfoliate but it's not so harsh that it leaves your skin irritated
Ana from Texas
I use twice a week to exfoliate and it leaves my skin feeling smooth and soft. Amazing product for the price
Great body scrub, for face, not so much
Martm1985 from Saint Clair Shores, MI
I have oily skin and this makes my face hurt so bad after use. I'm don't think I'm scrubbing my face hard, but I need to wash it off. One day I used it in the shower and all over by body and it was amazing. It does wonders for my elbows and back which has thick oily skin. I will continue to buy but only for a body scrub.
Tina from Wi
this isn't anything crazy-awesome but is really good for the price. Charcoal as an ingredient in skincare is really not necessary but the sugar in the scrub is great and not overly abrasive since it kind of melts as you scrub.
Shannon from Montgomery
I used this mask for a couple of weeks and it worked very well. It also is soothing and helpful to my face
Anonymous Shopper from Texas, U.S
I use this every Wednesday & Sunday, after using it for a while, I can see the acne on my face fading and I get breakouts less. I also love the smell, it gives a fresh feeling!
VP from Sevierville, TN
This is great for exfoliating and works also has a mask! I use it in the shower and left with baby smooth skin! I've gone thru lots of tubes and I'll continue repurchasing!
Shanice from Tallahassee, FL
Wanted to smooth out my skin since I've always acne. Using this and dermalogica face cleanser has really cleared up my face.
i used to love it
Ang from Indiana
I used to think the after feeling on my face was better than having it on and realised that this would hurt my skin and was very hard to take off without being a mess. I found out stuff like this is bad for you. I love the after feeling but I wouldnt recommended but if you do use it dont use it often
angel from at my amazing home, in bed
this is a very good mask but i think this is made mostly for oily skin (in my opinion) i have combo and my whole face just felt really dead for a little while except for my t-zone. just be careful.
Amazing scrub, better than the mask
Ariel from Oregon
This is one of the best exfoliates I've ever used, especially for the price. I prefer using it as a wash/scrub rather than the mask. I don't think I would see much of a change from the mask as the whole purpose of this product seems to be its exfoliating properties.
Been using it for years
LML from Northeastern Pennsylvania
Great for my super sensitive skin, exfoliant and moisturizer all in one.
Lettie from Longview TX
Feels amazingly clean and soothing
sensitive dry skin
Glistening Sunlight from wis
I would recommend for oily to normal skin. My skin is sensitive and dry so I broke out and turned red lol.
Love this scrub
Danielle from NJ
I love this face mask/scrub! I use it in the shower let it sit for a few minutes and gently scrub and wash off! then enjoy baby soft skin 🤪👍🏽
Sarah G from Green Bay wi
Great face mask/scrub for a great price. Every 10-14 days I leave on my face for 10 minutes then gently rub into skin and rinse. Takes care of my clogged pores and makes my skin brighter.
Gentle and effective!
Vanessa from Jackson, Tn
Not only does this product remove dirt and/or residue from my face, it's also rather gentle on the skin. I have sensitive skin, and this mask doesn't cause any irritation! (Though, I recommend using this mask once or twice a week for it can be drying with excessive use.) With the affordable factor, it's quite a steal!
Such a great feeling after
Nikki from MD
I use this regularly in the shower. I love the way my skin feels after. I pair it with the Freeman's peel mask and I swear my pores look smaller from being cleaned out so well!
This is either my third or fourth bottle of this stuff
Victoria from Wisconsin
I use this face mask a couple times a week, it is my go to use. I love how it makes my face feels and helps clear away acne that I have.
