Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.I've just used this mask for the first time and I find it GREAT!!!! I have a combination skin and I think it's good to respect the time necessary for the mask to act ---dry areas can get very very dry at the moment. It diminishes pores, clears them and this is what I expected form a mask of this type. Maybe next time I'll use it only on the T-zone. It works! I recommend!Like some other comments said, the first time I used this mask it immediately burned on my face. When I used it again after a month there was no burning anymore. I realised that the first time I used it, my skincare regimen was being to harsh on my skin, and I guess my skin barrier was broken. After I started using less chemical exfoliants and more skin barrier friendly products my skin was back to normal. I used the mask again it was okay. It's a great mask, my skin feels clean after I use it. Hope this helps anyoneI've used this mask for years, and love it. It clears my skin and closes pores.I am an avid fan of PC products, but some of them, this one included, unfortunately don't live up to both price and reputation. This product burns immediately upon application and keeps burning. Also it leaves the skin extremely dry and irritated afterward. I would not recommend this product for anyone with combination skin.I have order some sample to try paula's skincare and they was good except this mask. First I clean the face with balancing cleansing and after that I take on this mask.
But directly it burns like a fire in my face and first I think okay it working but after about two minutes i most take it of.
And even after I take it off it burned for about five minutes in my face.
I had big expectation of this product but now i have to try the other mask and hope is going to work because I want everything in this serie.
