So I love doing face masks I do them about every week to every other week. I have done lots of different black masks. This black mask worked well removed lots of dead skin ando several black heads. It didn't really hurt anymore then any other peel off mask. My skin feels amazing after taking off the mask so clean and smooth. The one down fall to this mask it the texture it is really hard to apply evenly and if you get a thicker spot it slides down your face.
