Most Helpful Positive Review Use consistently for consistent results!
My belief on skin is that it's all about preventative care - the better you are to your skin, the better it will be to you! I was using "fresh" black tea perfecting mask for the last 6 months or so & when it ran out I just couldn't justify sending an extra $88.00 on something I felt was "meh"
I use a lot of kiehls products, so I figured I'd give this a shot and have been so pleased with the results that I can't see myself switching to anything else in the future. I use it twice a week & usually leave it on for about 45 minutes. Your skin feels so cleansed and soft afterwards, & the formula itself isn't harsh. It has a lovely texture and is extremely easy to put on - same goes for removal, just use a warm towel (FYI, I always use my clairisonic afterwards with some face wash, just to make sure to dig out the residue). For those of you questioning if its worth spending $23 on this because the jar is small, please know that a tiny bit goes a long way. As I said, I use mine twice a week and haven't even made a noticeable dent in it.

Most Helpful Critical Review I really wanted this to work for me
This is my first Kiehl's product, and I was super excited after reading all the five hearts reviews. I used it for couple weeks now, and I am not happy with the results. I don't know if it's actually doing what it's suppose to do - deep pore cleansing. I love how it feels when I put it on my skin. It tingles a little, and feels refreshing. My skin seems softer and brighter after I rinse the mask with warm water, but my pores are still not clean! :/ What am I doing wrong? I follow the instructions and also tried steaming my face before putting on masque for maximum result. But, does nothing for my dirty pores :/

Possibly the best skin care product I've ever used
RSpa from Pittsburgh
This stuff is nothing short of amazing! I've had problems with visible pores of the past few years. Tried a bunch of other products with little or no result. A few weeks ago, I decided to give this a go. After the first use, the results were apparent. My skin not only felt clean, but shocking my pores were less visible and my skin looked refreshed. After a few uses, I'm hooked and will never run out of this mask! Thanks Kiehl's!!

Skincare 101 from Hawaii
I have had professional skin care treatments every 3 weeks for the last 25 years. As an important follow up, I use daily/weekly masks. I just used the entire small travel size and just purchased a large size container. This is an excellent mask for regular use and the texture and firmness of my skin has improved. I highly recommend it.

Like some others have mentioned. This product smells awful. Buyer beware.
Great mask for acne prone skin
Acne prone girl from Middletown, CT
I apply this product about once a week, or whenever I notice my acne getting bad. I know people are upset in the reviews that this product does not "shrink pores", however, it is a myth that you can shrink your pores using any product. Those who claim it shrinks your pores are simply experiencing a placebo effect, and may simply have fewer blackheads, making their pores appear to be less visible. However, I do notice that this mask helps tremendously with both my cystic acne and my small forehead zits. It controls oil without overdrying or tightening my skin, and I have very sensitive skin and this did not break me out. I purchased two of the smaller size in store because they did not have the larger size, but next time I will absolutely spring for the large size. Finally, a mask that works for me without causing a reaction!
I like this mask very much

I tried this mask, I like it very much and will continue to repurchase
Laureninflorida from Sarasota, FL
I have oily, acne prone skin that has taken me years to get under control. This mask was the last piece of the puzzle for me. I had been using all sorts of deep cleansing masks before, but this is the only mask that actually did the job where I could see a huge difference and tell that my pores were clean afterwards. I use it once a week with a lighter duty mask also once a week and my pores have never looked better. 110% recommend!
Dene from Tennessee
This works great especially if used at night after skin care routine. I love the feeling of my skin after use and it does help to minimize pores and stop blackheads in its tracks. I use it if I feel like my face is overly greasy and dirty and just needs a toxic cleanse. One of my favorite products.
My Fave Routine Mask
RKBee from Kailua, HI, USA
Love this clay mask. I use it once a week as part of my routine as it makes my skin better and smoother and it just feels better! I highly recommend it.
Boboy from Malaysia
First product of kiehls, actually intend to buy origins clean improvement for pore minimiser. Then got entertained nicely by a chinese lady at Kiehls NU Sentral KL, Malaysia yesterday
Then i gave it a try, turn out it workssss after so many years I've been finding a right product to clean my face full of blackheads and big pores :(
It works at one time use. Ignore everyone. Trust me its worth it to try on you pretty face !
Holy grail for pimples!
Ann from CA from Los Angeles, CA
Do I notice it doing anything for my pores? unfortunately, no... but I do have big pores. However!! I will use this product and would recommend it 10/10 for anyone that has acne prone skin. Around my period, I tend to break out (a combination of the under the skin cyst pimples and the little whiteheads). I will use this mask and let me tell you, this HELPS SO MUCH in drying up and shrinking those bad boys. Yes, even the painful, under the skin cystic pimples. It will shrink it the next day.
I don't those this product consistently like one or twice a week (maybe that's why I don't notice my pores?) but I will reach for it when I start breaking out near my periods. Also, it leaves a fresh, cooling feeling when applied so for some, it may be irritating.
Liz's review from Boston, MA
I've been using this mask for 2 weeks now and have noticed a difference on my pores, they're much cleaner and my complexion looks more even.
Pore minimizing! Great after feels :)
kanidhi from India
This product is exactly what it commits. I love the mask, I have been using it since I was 27 and now I am 30. The major change of age signs appear in this spectrum. I am so proud that i bough this product, as it take gentle care of my skin. My skin still feels 27, clean and smooth. Even when my skin tans, the smoothness of the skin layer makes it look amazing. All kielh's products help skin feel loo and grow great. The little trick for those ones who thinks this product doesn't work, i would suggest remove the mask with a warm water (or steam soaked) towel. Love Kielhs
I would buy this product again
Catherine from Mobile Alabama
I was very pleased with how well this mask cleaned my pores because mine are very clogged.
Smooth, Easy to Use
Toid from undisclosed
Easy to apply. Dries to a chalky texture but doesn't feel tight. Comfortable to leave on face. I didn't find this mask to be very strong. I am normal skin tending toward dry due to middle age. This product did not dry my skin. Too early to tell what it can do. I am not prone to acne or have large pores. Was looking for more of a detox type mask. This seems much weaker than the popular cheap clay mask that has a cult following. That mask gets so tight on your face it is almost uncomfortable. But the results after in terms of smoothness were more pronounced than the Kiehl's product.
Very disappointing! Doesn't do anything.
taparapap from Croatia
I normally use kiehls products and am mostly satisfied, but this one really disappointed me. I bought this mask primarily because of the great reviews and because a lot of people wrote that the mask is great, that it removes blackheads, reduces pores and that they have never tried a better mask in their life. I was really looking forward to trying this mask because I have been looking for a mask for a long time that is worth the money and that will really make some change on my face. I've been using it for over 3 weeks now and I can only say that it doesn't work at all. It doesn't remove blackheads at all, it doesn't shrink pores, I absolutely don't see any changes on my face. It's literally the same as if I put some cheapest mask on my face. People don't waste money without trying a tester first because it really doesn't pay off. I think everyone expects some result considering the mask is not cheap. Very disappointing.
I wish it worked
Imsad from Michigan
I did not see any difference in the size / appearance of my pores.
A must for oily skin
K. Ralston from Philadelphia, PA
I love this. I'm in my 30s and still break out at the drop of a hat. This really cleans my pores and makes my face feel so clean. My skin tone looks better too. I usually use it twice per week but will add in another one any time my face feels dirty and greasy.
i will continue to buy this product over and over,
Speed from Gulf Shores, AL
Wasn't sure I'd care for it but, I can tell you that I'll never be without it! And, that's after one use! I have spent lots more on other products before but, this one gave true instant gratification!!!
Lives up to the hype
Jesse from Yuma, AZ
I really liked the super smooth and creamy texture of the mask. Almost zero scent to it. I only recently bought it so I haven't used it too many times but my face does look and feel smoother afterwards which is nice cause it doesn't have any scrubbing bits in it.
richdatdude from undisclosed
So far I like the texture of this mask. It does not harden up and clog your drain like some clay masks.
My skin looks and feels clean after each use. I also enjoy the tingly feeling I get when using this mask
My pores haven't looked this good in a while!
Kalalala from Morgantown, WV
I'm using this mask every 2-3 days, "only a dab will do ya" is an accurate statement for this product. It has a nice cooling effect while it's on and comes off nicely with a warm, damp washcloth. I've been using it before bed and put my nightly moisturizer on afterwards and the next morning my face feels brand new!
JDaniel from New Jersey
This is the first and only mask I have ever used and I'm in love with it! My face feels great after using it! Great texture and feeling. I love it!
Perfect For Pores
Lashawn from Gastonia
I bought the sample size wanting to try it out in desperate need for something to minimize my pores . Left this mask on for 10 minutes and my face was feeling fresh also not dried out at all . Best mask I've ever tried to be honest next day my pores were small barely noticeable and acne scars actually lighter with just one use . Ready to get this big size after my sample size is used up ❤️
Caligrl76 from North Carolina
I use all Kiehls products. I even have my husband hooked on them! We made an order a few weeks ago and got this mask as a sample. I just used it today and waited 10 minutes before I washed it off. And OMG! The smoothness and texture of my face was Amazing! I even had my mom look at my face and she could tell my face looked brighter and smoother. I am sooo happy with the results! I'm shocked at how quickly it worked! Awesome job Kiehls on this product!
