Review of Product:

LOVE it!! So I've been having some skin issues as of late. I blame my new stupid schedule that has my sleeping schedule out of wack and has me consuming extreme amounts of caffeine (SOO not a morning person). So anyway I digress. So a friend of mine CeCe (You can check out her beauty blog at http://www.bronzegoddessbeauty.com/) recommended this product, she said it really worked. I had my doubts, masques usually don't work for me, but I thought I'd give it a whirl. So, I slathered it all over my face and neck. The masque has a pleasant pepperminty/mint smell and as it dries on your face it tingles a little. The directions say to leave it on for 15 mins but I'm lazy and I probably had it on my face about 45 mins. The next day my skin was visibly more clear! It really dried up the worst of the blemishes. So I used it again a few days later while I was taking a bath and again I had the same results and the pores on my nose are seriously smaller. I have tried all sorts of exfoliants to try to get rid of some of the small blackheads on my nose but two applications of this masque did more than all the exfoliates including facials combined!

Want to know the best part of this product??
It only cost 5 or 6 bucks at Sally Beauty Supply!!

It's cheap and effective. I love it so much I bought another jar to mail to my best friend as part of a relaxation care package (she's a grad student and can use all the relaxation she can get LOL)
