This clay mask comes in a plastic pouch, containing about 100gms of the product. It's a gray coloured mask in the form of powder. Comes with instructions on how to make & use the mask along with brief details about the properties of this clay mask.
Okay so the first thing is that, I am not very happy with the packaging. And it would have been so much better if it came in a plastic jar/tub instead of a plastic pouch. So the first thing I had to do was to transfer the entire product in to an empty jar. This way it was easier for me to use & work with, without creating a mess.
One thing which I have noticed while preparing this mask is that for some unknown reasons the clay mask doesn't blend in to a proper paste like form, no matter how much water quantity I adjust, it always & always ends up with those clay lumps and they are very difficult for me to work with. I usually use Rose water to make this mask but have also used tap water. And in both the cases, it just doesn't make in to a good, thick paste.
Now the results: I'm extremely amazed by the results of this mask! I honestly never thought it would work much for me as a lot of local masks do not work for me. But this one has to be different definitely. The moment I took off the mask and washed my face, voila! My face looked so bright & clearer than before. It looked very clean. I closely looked for my blackheads and I was shocked to see that it did work to remove them to some extent too. I wouldn't say that all my blackheads were gone but yes it cleared up a lot of them! So this mask basically draws out all the dirt and impurities from the pores thus making my face look cleaner than before.
I would definitely recommend this mask to you, if you're someone who is struggling with a lot of blackheads & some acne since it does reduce acne over the time too. I get occasional zits & pimples and so far this mask has worked by resolving my acne issue. Although I'm not sure about how good this will work for all-year round acne prone skin. But this definitely is worth a try in my opinion!
I use this mask once weekly. The mask dries up on my face pretty quickly, within ten to fifteen minutes. Easily removed with water.
