    For everyone whose read the previous comments regarding how this product "doesn't deep clean" or how it "doesn't work" let me assure you, as I am a professional Esthetician by title and profession, there is no miracle cure. The ideal person who wants great skin must have a daily skincare regimen. If you are prone to acne breakouts or oily skin do NOT go for alcohol-filled skincare products. This product is ideal because it possesses many natural ingredients, such as clay. As Americans we have a concept of what it means to have the skin "deep cleaned". Let me assure you if you ever use something and it burns or hurts its damaging your skin. This mask is fabulous, as well as the Alba Hawaiian line. Steam your face with a hot, damp washcloth then apply this product for best use. And use it biweekly, not everyday, your skin needs to recover from product usage. Best of luck!

    This product is unlike any mask I have used in the past. The fragrance comes on strong and reminds me of cheap soap - I am put in mind of Zest. The texture of the product itself is gelatinous and soapy, so much so that I read the front of the bottle again to make sure it said "mask" and not "cleanser" or the like. I left it on my skin long enough to dry out, and when I washed it off my skin did feel tighter and very smooth. However, I also noticed that I had gotten some on my shirt, and the stuff bleached the color out of my shirt in that spot! I think there is more to this product than meets the eye - it has some strong ingredients. I am no chemist, but maybe the capric/caprylic triglyceride and stearic acid ingredients may be responsible for the bleaching effect. Perhaps it should really be labeled a chemical peel. In any case, it is not the all-natural product that it appears to be.

      Comments about Alba Botanica Even Advanced Facial Mask, Deep Sea, 4 oz:

      I've been using this mask for almost a year now after trying out a lot of different products in a variety of price ranges...this one has worked the absolute best, and lasted the longest! Most masks will irritate my skin and make it worse, but this one is great for energizing dull skin and cleaning out pores. After doing a scrub and applying this after, my skin is immediately improves. I put it on once a week and highly reccomend it.

      I use this product to clear dark marks on my skin (It does work well for me!) . I use it like a spot treatment overnight, and it usually takes one to two day to clear the marks. It makes my occasional acne smaller. I like it alot!

        I have used this mask once and was very impressed with the results. I have combination skin and it got rid of the oiliness that my face gets in the summer in New England. I would purchase this mask again. My face was nice and clean after.

              THis mask is great. It is a great deep cleaning mask, it smells strong, but its not a bad smell, just a clean smell. I can feel it working on my skin, i usually leave it on for 15 mins. I would recommend moisturizing afterwards.

                I enjoy a nice clay-based mask once a week. This one from Alba is especially smooth and creamy going on. It has a pleasant fragrance and had a calming effect on my skin. It removes easily and left my skin feeling very smooth and soft. I followed up with toner and moisturizer and my face feels so soft! My sensitive skin showed no signs of irritation at all from this natural mask.

                I was looking for a less expensive substitute for Philosophy's exfoliating wash. This is an good substitute. I just don't like the film it leaves behind but I know others will. I typically like squeaky clean skin that I can add my own moisturizer. This product has the moisturizer built in. Not 100% for me but I would buy it again and recommend it.

                  I have pretty ok skin, with occasional breakouts and some blemishes. But I feel like this product took my skin from ok, to amazing! I've been using it for a few months now, about once a week. It does tingle, so you can feel it working, but it doesn't burn or sting. I usually use it at night and am astounded the next morning when I wake up. My skin just glows and feels really soft. I started using the gel cleanser with it a few weeks ago, and the two products together work even better! Another plus is that I have sensitive skin and this is not abrasive at all, though I would not use it more than once a week.

                  I use this once a week and I love it! It seems to do the job that I bought it for. Then again I don't believe in "Quick Fixes" , so I definatley believe in continuous use of this product over time.

                  Comments about Alba Botanica Even Advanced Facial Mask, Deep Sea, 4 oz:

                  I haven't had much experience with facial masks but I like this one. I use it once a week (in conjunction with a facial scrub, daily cleanser, and toner) and I feel like it cleans and softens my skin. It has no smell and is quick to use (you leave it on for 5 minutes) but it does dry my face without tightening my pores. I use the toner after I wash it off and that really helps offset the dryness. I have been using it for 1-2 months now but I am not really sure if I will buy it again. I am going to see if my results improve with continued usage.
