    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.

          Well deep cleaning should not be how they advertise for this mask. It is super mild and if that's what you need then this is for you. I on the other hand was lookign for a deep clean feel without irritating my acne. It doesn't even dry like a normal mask it's like putting a cream on my face and washing it off. I feel as though I need to wash my face afterwards. It's not greasy but I don't get an AHHH sensation of clean from this mask. I will not buy again.

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

            Most masks have too much perfume and coloring and irritate the skin. This one does not. It does a good job of soaking off dead skin and freshening the face.

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

              This mask was just okay. It tingled a bit, and left my skin feeling refreshed. However, my pores looked smaller for only a short period of time (if used in the morning, by the afternoon my skin looked the same as before the mask, or if I used it at night, by morning it seemed to make no difference). For a deep cleansing mask with lasting, visible results, I would not recommend this, but I would if you're looking for a quick and refreshing mask (it was nice to use while I was living in a place that would get very hot, humid temperatures).

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

              We all need a non-daily regimen that thoroughly cleans the pores. This one is effective yet gentle. I wish it had a companion product that adds moisture around the eyes so that I could use simultaneously. Best use: apply to cleaned face, draw an herbal bath and climb in for 20 minutes. After rinsing, apply your favorite moisturizer.

                  I use mask everyday but different products. This one is absolutly worth the money! It's only [$] when I putchased, and it smooths the skin of my face every time. The smell is OK, like the smell of ocean seaweed.

                  I hate anything on my face that is "warming," such as this product. After rinsing it off, it did make my skin look more radiant, but seconds after I dried my face these violent red patches started to form all over my face. The next day I broke out. I will not use this product again.
