I was taken aback when I unscrewed the lid - it has an extremely underwhelming appearance - because it almost looks like a lump of dung! I thought that I was breeding something in there but no, the living and breathing jiggly mess is due to the Sodium Bicarbonate content.

The creamy consistency helps it to spread like butter and wash off easily. It doesn't feel as drying as the average clay mask, so that was a nice touch. It smells a little on the green side, albeit in a chemical way. It is very familiar and yet hard to pinpoint. I have got to stew on it further before I can come out with the appropriate analogy, heh.

The mask is incredibly effective at drawing out dirt, toxins and oil build-up but that just means that after using it, I am quarantined to my room for a week. The breakouts it brings forth is nothing short of scary. This is why, late nights combined with unhealthy snacking isn't good *laughs but you know I am crying*

Does it warrant a repurchase? Definitely!!
