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 :/
Reviewed by 276 customers My Go-To Mask!!!
Callah from Maryland
I love the Rare Earth facewash, so I thought "eh, what the heck i'll try the mask." HOLY COW I'M SO GLAD I DID. This mask is so lightweight and a little goes a long way. It's fast drying and easy to remove after 10-15 minutes. The first time I used this mask, I moisturized with a face milk, and my BF thought I had makeup on because I looked so glowy and dewy. This seems to be the only pore minimizing mask that has worked for my combination skin (oily t zone and semi dry everywhere else.)
THANK YOU KIEHLS!
My favorite face mask
Anna from Houston, Texas
The face mask is my absolute favorite! I've now bought it several times and have always enjoyed it. The amount of product usually lasts me 5-6 months, which justifies the price in my mind. When I apply this mask I notice a clarity in my skin and less accumulation of oil in my T-zone, which is a major concern of mine.
Much like other commenters have said, this face mask requires continual use to see the effects--I try to use this mask at least once a week. It's also important that you apply this mask to a lightly damp face or you might end up using too much product.
Love this product!! I...
cigdem from South Florida
Love this product!! I would definitely say it's one of their greatest products for aiding in dead skin removal and really cleaning out and refining your pores.I have a oily skin and helps a lot with the breakouts. It's great to use once or twice a week/ Love love love it!!!
My favorite mask!
Makeup lover from Asheville NC
Love this mask. Applies smoothly to face and removes all impurities. Face is fresh and soft after using.
Not Even Half-Filled with Product
Becca01 from CT
I'm pretty disappointed by the amount of product in the jar. The photo doesn't even do it justice because the side that looks like it's filled to the top was hollowed out. Not worth the money for such a small quantity in my opinion.
sam from New York, NY
I love this mask. The first time I used it I was amazed. I was looking for a mask that was easy to use, apply and take off. It made my skin the softest it's ever been and it felt so refreshed and my pores did get smaller. It's amazing I really recommend.
Crystal H from Minnesota
A little drying. I recommend following it up with the ultra moisturizer afterwards; however though this mask is good for giving you a new face and what I mean by new face is that it's a great toxin and oil buildup remover for your pores. I would definitely say it's one of their greatest products for aiding in dead skin removal and really cleaning out and refining your pores. This product is a a great go to for use once or twice a week if you want to keep a good consistent fresh looking face and keep any kind of facial pores under control. Recommend for any type of skin but absolutely remember to make sure to follow up with good moisturizer.
good mask,and i like it so much

I have been using this mask for more than a month and I use it once a week over the weekend. I have noticed changes in my skin as it has gotten cleaner and smoother. I would continue using this product going forward and would recommend to a friend!
broken and opened
Erica66 from Dallas
The bottom of the bottle was broken, and it appeared to have been opened. What had happened in the past?
Added to my skin woes. Money wasted.
Nehdh from Chicago
I use a lot of skin care products from Kiehl's and I love them all. They work really well for me except this clay face mask which did not give me the expected results and also caused breakouts on my face, forehead etc. Initially I thought it's a mere coincidence but I get breakouts every time I use this product. Plus when I apply, it stings my face.
My skin loves this
Sarah from Tx
Love what this does for my skin. Pores look smaller and face seems clearer!
Bye Bye pores!
RoxyV from Chicago
Absolutely love this mask! I have an obsession with masks and use them about 3x a week. After one use of this mask my pores were clear and reduced in size. I have sensitive skin with hormonal acne whenever my period comes around and this has helped keep the acne to a minimum. Definitely one of my top 3 favorite masks!
you need it
paige from texas
the only thing that clears my acne!! if you have fungal acne/small bumps this clears it!!
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!!
5 Star Mask
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
EMELY from undisclosed
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.
