If you're a skincare fanatic, like myself, you're always wanting to try new products. Over the years, my skin has changed time and time again. Lately, a lot of the struggles I deal with when it comes to skincare are clogged pores, acne, and a combination of oily and dry skin. I've tried a variety of different masks, and have found myself always drawn to clay masks. But I think what I've always had a hard time with when it comes to clay masks is how rough it feels on your skin. A lot of clay masks feels really drying afterward. This is the first clay mask I've used that didn't feel dry or harsh on my skin. So let's get down to the nitty gritty. What were the pros and cons of this mask? Who would I recommend this to? Who wouldn't I recommend this to? It's important to note, as you read my review, that I was gifted this clay mask by the STELLAR PANEL and HERO brand in exchange for an honest and authentic review. I plan to give you just that! PROS: -Feels gentle on your skin -Soft suds -Doesn't leave your skin feeling dry and patchy -Feels light weight on your skin -You can use it more than once a week -Affordable price CONS: -Sticks to your skin, it's a little bit tougher to wash off than I would like -Doesn't feel like it fully cleans the pores out Overall, I really like it. Let's be honest here, you either get a clay mask that's more aggressive and completely cleanses your pores out, but makes it feel dry as all get out afterward OR you get a more gentle product (like this one) and it doesn't feel as aggressive of a product, but still feels really nice without being harsh on your skin. I feel likes it's really hard to find the best of both worlds. I haven't been able to find that unicorn product yet. But I do really like this one because my skin unfortunately can be really sensitive, and can't quite handle those more intensive masks. I also wanted to mention that I didn't notice a huge difference in my skin after multiple uses, however, it's important to recognize that consistency is key with these products. You won't see results over night. I think my favorite result from this mask would be that it made my face feel cleaner, but somehow still soft after using it on multiple occasions. I will continue to use it and update on progress in six months, and then check back in. WHO I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS CLAY MASK TO: 1) Those who struggle with combination skin (dry, oily, and acne) 2) Those who struggle with sensitive skin 3) Those who have a hard time with harsher skin products WHO I WOULDN'T RECOMMEND THIS CLAY MASK TO: 1) Those wanting quicker results
I recieved this mask as part of the Stellar product testing panel in exchange for my honest review. When I used the mask I used it on my full face. The squeeze bottle was very convenient for only using a bit at a time and keeps the product from drying out so it should last a long time if you only apply a thin layer. It is supposed to suds up a little bit when removed but I used a clean cloth when removing it and didn't notice it bubbling, however it did remove nicely without the need for scrubbing with the cloth. Immediately after use my skin felt soft and clean and not overly dried out like I've experienced with some other clay masks, which was nice, though I haven't noticed too much of a difference in the appearance of my pores yet. The next day my skin did respond to the drying by producing more oils but frequent use has reduced that response. I have sensitive skin and I was very happy to find that it wasn't irritating to my skin like other masks can be. The biggest con for me us that one of the ingredients in the mask is sulfur and because there are no other scented ingredients or perfumes in the mask the smell of sulfur is clearly in the mask. I hoped that the smell would stop after rinsing, but the smell lingers on my skin until I wash my face the next morning, and even then it is still faintly there for a while longer. I get migraines and scents can be a trigger so I was excited about there being no perfumes in the mask and disappointed by the smell of sulfur lingering so long. It also is just generally an unpleasant scent. My 4 year old complains that I smell like farts during bedtime on nights I use the mask, but nobody notices it without close contact. I think changing my use to just my T-zone or my T-zone and cheeks would solve the problem of smelling it for the next 24 hours and I probably won't use it as a full face mask following this test period, though I will continue to use the mask. Overall I don't think this mask would be my first choice to recommend, but if you don't mind the smell of sulfur I wouldn't recommend against it either.

Very expensive and I haven't seen result after using it multiple times. Spend your money on something else please

Put this on to test, after i took it off i noticed many of my clogged pores were gone and many shrunk. (Ive used this twice i think it may take consistent usage to completely remove impurities) Ive always struggled with clogged pores and I had never found a biable solution until i trued this mask. Its a game changer, 100% recommend😁

I've used this for over 3 months 2 times a week and I don't see a difference at all in my skin . I switched to origins charcoal mask and it did much more then this mask. I would say if your on a budget try it . It won't make your skin worse
Haylee from Florida
This is a decent clay face mask-especially for the price. The ingredients don't irritate my sensitive skin, and i will certainly be adding this to my skincare routine.

I FOUND MY NEW FAVORITE MASK! I've only used this mask twice so far, and I'm absolutely blown away with the results! It's very easy to apply and spreads evenly without feeling tight or drying my skin out. It deeply cleanses my pores, literally removing all traces of dirt and grime without causing any irritation. I love how sudsy it gets when you add water to remove it and how gentle it is on my skin. My pores are left so clean that I barely notice them. This amazing mask will always have a spot in my skincare routine!

i've always had oily skin and big pores thanks to genetics and this really helps to tighten them and makes my face feel nice and smooth

The product itself works well. It leaves my skin feeling very smooth without drying out. I used the Hero toner and moisturizer afterwards as well which helped I think. However, it smells really strange. I came on here to see if I was the only one and it seems as though most others can't smell it?? I could smell it while it was drying AND I'm sitting here 30 after washing my off and can still smell it.

I love this stuff! Works like a dream and your skin feels so good. Love that it lathers off!
Sandro from Undisclosed
I use this once a week and I really like how well it works for me. My face feels so much better and it's less oily.

cleansing but not drying - smells neutral and washes away into easy to remove suds. easy to spread and doesn't take much to get good coverage!
SweetsnSTONED from Undisclosed
Has done so much for my clogged pores! I love that it washes off effortlessly and doesn't dry my skin out!
Marti from Undisclosed
Never would've thought a clay mask would be so easy and comfortable! Totally true when they say you can still move your face when it dries and it comes off instantly. Wonderful feel afterward too.

Mask felt fine going on but I was instantly turned of the product because of the sulfur. It goes from a gaseous popcorn smell then later turns to burnt rubber.

This mask feels smooth and I think it's working
Brody L. from Undisclosed
The directions are super easy to follow, but washing your skin before application seems pointless since this stuff has a strong smell and is hard to layer with other skincare products. It lathers into suds really well, and applies super nice. My skin feels better after I use it, but I do have to wash my face after to remove the smell.
Ally from Undisclosed
Wow, this mask is incredible. It cleanses skin without drying or irritating.

I love this clay mask! Feels great on my skin. Easy to apply and rinse off. Leaves my skin sooo soft! Great cleansing mask!

The Pore Purity cleansing clay mask cleans away any dirt and impurities in my pores. I like that the clay mask is easy to spread all over my face. The clay mask is smooth and easy to apply. I left it on for 20 minutes and wash away with water. I did not find it to be hard to wash away the clay mask compare to other clay masks that leave residue on my face. My skin feels smooth and hydrated. I received this product for free for the purpose of my review. All opinions are my own. #FreeSample

Love this clay mask. The ingredients are clean and leaves my skin feeling clean. It's the first clay mask I've tried that doesn't feel uncomfortable as it "dries". It seems to have helped decongest and minimize breakouts. Definitely recommend you give it a try. I received this product for free for the purpose of my review. All opinions are my own.

Easy to use mask that washes off with warm water. Helped shrink a huge pimple that I had on my temple. My face feels cleaner after I use this mask. My pores feel cleansed. #ad #freesample I received this product for free for the purpose of my review. All opinions are my own.

It was very easy to use and worked really well. I like that it didn't have a scent. It spread on very easily and even when it was "dry" I could still move my face without it feeling super tight like many face masks. It washed off really easily. I am not sure I would pay the price for it, I will see how long this bottle lasts to see if it is worth the price. "I received this product for free for the purpose of my review.

It cleanses the pores of oil and dirt, but in a way that is comfortable for the face, that is, it does not feel dry or tight, as the uses progress, the skin feels soft and less greasy. Its texture is almost foamy, when I squeeze it in the palm of my hand or it dries on my face I can move and articulate comfortably in the minutes before washing. I liked having used it.

Brandi from Undisclosed
Used this a few times so far, and love it :) I've been putting a thin layer all over my face, and leaving in on for 10 minutes, as stated in the directions. It does dry down a bit , like a clay mask normally would, but not uncomfortably so. Rinses off easily, as it turns into a soap-like wash. No strong smell, actually next to no smell at all. No breakouts or other irritation from it. I WILL be repurchasing this one when I get close to running out.

Finally a clay mask that doesn't make me feel like my face is "pulling" & shrinking to nothing as it dries!!! :tada: Applied easily and and was actually kind of fun how it suds up with water prior to rinsing away. Skin felt fresh & clean after use but not tight. Very helpful in controlling any summer facial oiliness. I received this product for free for the purpose of my review.
