    Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Pore Extractor Exfoliating Clay Mask:

    I'm a mask junkie and this was included in a sample set I bought. I have acne prone, combo skin and have a bad problem with blackheads and enlarged pores. I used as instructed on certain areas that are extremely oily and put a light layer on the rest. I did not wait 15 minutes, 10 mins tops to wash off and had no problems removing. It smells amazing, gives a great tingle feeling when applied and is a very chunky scrub to apply. I had a healing pimple that looks better the next day, my skin feels clean and smooth and I can't already tell it improved my pores. Can't wait to buy the full size this is the best mask I've found yet!

      I've used this mask three times now and it leaves my skin feeling tight and clean, and the shine it gives my skin is unreal. It looks like I have highlighter on after I use it. This will always be my weekly facial treatment!

          this stuff is amazing. exfoliating and extracts blackheads - even stubborn nose blackheads! i an so happy to have found this. i am a mask junkie and have tried many and this even tops my charcoal mask by origins (which is also a great mask.) so much better for your skin than those black masks that you have to peel off. all those do is just rip your tiny hairs out and create more openings for blackheads. this used in combination with paulas choice bha liquid is magic.

            Not for sensitive skin

            By caroh

            from Ohio

            Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Pore Extractor Exfoliating Clay Mask:

            I decided to splurge on this and it's just not for me. I have sensitive combo skin with blackheads in my T-zone and pretty dry redness on my cheeks, and it didn't help with either. The formula is very very gritty and harsh and it dries too quickly to do any real exfoliation beforehand. It tore up the skin on my nose pretty badly, leaving it flaky. I tried it as a spot treatment but that didn't seem to do anything either. Too bad, although I did some research and manual exfoliation is not great for my skin type skin anyway. Wish I'd figured that out before I spent nearly $40 on this stuff!

            New holy grail mask!

            By Sda11489

            from Chicago

            Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Pore Extractor Exfoliating Clay Mask:

            I have oily skin, the occasional breakout, large pores, and blackheads on my nose, chin, and cheek area. I was using the Glamglow Supermud mask which helped, but it is very expensive and didn't wow me. I was skeptical when I tried this because I've tried so many masks, but this one blew me away! My blackheads appeared to diminish, and my skin was super smooth and looked like I had an Instagram filter on my face. I couldn't believe it. This is a must try for those who struggle with some of the same issues I have! I will always keep this in skincare regimen!

            Comments about Philosophy Purity Made Simple Pore Extractor Exfoliating Clay Mask:

            I have used Philosophy products since it was a sleeper brand that hardly anyone knew about. And, still use many of their skin care products & just two fragrances.
            This pore mask is great. I'm in my (ugh!) late 50's and; still have a bit of oily skin & enlarged pores on my nose area. There's also some pore enlargement with age so, I'm sure that's a factor.
            I use this twice a week and after about a month, I saw a true difference in the size of pores and, texture of the skin. One thing that's important to know, is that this is not a smooth mask. It has a microdermabrasion effect and if you wait too long, it's stubborn to get off.
            I've used the purity facial cleansing sheets and a bit of water to remove. But, afterwards~it's a nice smooth feeling. The skin looks irritated at first because of the microdermabrasion. But, it calms down in a short amount of time. I do it at night when I use it.
            If you have sensitive skin, tread lightly or look for a smooth pore mask.
            But for me~a great product!
