This clay mask is very thick , so I do need quite a lot to apply on my face . It leave a cool sensation on my face and it dries up very fast . After wash off the mask , I realise my skin feels tighter and my pores become least visible . I expect it to reduce my oil secretion but so far it did not help . I like this product so far .
I have a combination skin condition hence my T-Zone tends to get oily along the day. After trying out a sample of the volcanic mask, it had reduced the pimples around the T-Zone and the redness of my pimple. The clay mask is rather clumpy, however when you apply it, it will 'melt' on the face and stay there. To me, is it easy for application. It would be convenient by applying it with a spoon so your fingers would not be messy and having the clay mask stuck inside the nails.
I first used this mask last year - first impressions were that it has a nice smell that goes away within minutes of application, then your skin will feel the cooling effect of the mask. This is great to use on a hot day.
After around 10-15 mins, you will feel some tightening effects. Please monitor and do not let this mask sit on your face until it has completely dried out as it would draw out moisture from your skin.
Wash off with lukewarm water and then, i always finish with a toner and cotton pad before putting other products. Somehow there would still be some residue left after rinsing.
This clay is not very thick, it is more like a smooth clay. Use it after washing face and applied toner first. Apply one thin layer for 10 minutes, at least it has to dry completely. Then rinse off with warm water. It has light cooling effect, it can slightly minimize pores on my cheeks but need to use quite often, at least two times per week. I can't see it help to remove sebum it can't help to stop sebum produce too.
I picked up the product during my trip to korea because there was a huge rave for it a while back, and i wanted to try a clay mask.
I forgot about it until a few months later when i took it out to test it. It was already hardened, and I couldn't use it and had to be thrown away.
I decided to try it out again and brought a new one. The application process is not very good - it was very thick & rough to feel and hence had to use quite a bit of force to apply it on my face and spread it evenly. Moreover, they did not add in a spacula into the packaging which added to the cons.
When i washed it out with water after 15 minutes, i was really disappointed with the outcome. I did not see any noticable changes on my face like what i see on Youtube videos. It was a little troublesome to wash it out as well.
I will try it out again for the second time, and see if there will be any visible changes soon.
Would I recommend it to anyone? No - get a clay mask that's easier to apply and doesn't harden easily.
