It isn't the nicest looking mask, it reminded me of wet builders sand Very Happy but one teaspoon of powder mixed with a teaspoon of water goes a long way.
It mixes to a smooth paste that I left on between 10-15 minutes before massaging off. The sandy feel gives you an excellent exfoliation but it's not harsh on my skin.
While I could feel some tightening of the mask it wasn't uncomfortable like some clay based masks I've used.

When I rinsed it away I had lovely smooth glowing, deep pore cleansed skin.


It is suggested that this is used after the facial steam, as the steam opens the pores and loosen the debris. This is the method I used but I imagine if you don't have a steamer a nice hot damp flannel pressed on your skin would be fine.

I've now set up 30 minutes at the weekend for my deep cleanse and it's one I'm going to stick with.

Eve - I am glad that you can see and feel the difference. I have used this mask 2-3 times a week for the last 2~3 weeks, however, I have not seen anything yet. I cannot massage off my skin cause it's a bit too hard. I did it the first time, and my face felt burnt, the sand is a bit abrasive for me.

I, too, use this mask with nice success.

Guapagirl: I have almost "teen skin", though I am well out of my teens, and I have found this mask very effective.

I don't own a steamer, but I use the steam bath concentrate in a pot full of about 2-4 cups of water, and I just hold my head over the pot for 10-15 with a towel over my head, seems to be working for me.

This IS a lot gentler than other clay masks I have use. I use this 'aztec clay' mask and it is much harsher, making my skin feel VERY tight while it is drying.

Hi Happy, sorry it's working so well. I don't think I would like to use it 3xs in a week though, that might feel too abrasive. I use a wet flannel to remove the mask, the dampness softens it, I massage it round a little then use the flannel to wipe it off. I use a flannel with all my masks as it saves time and water!

Guapa - I think so. I don't have teen skin either BUT I think it would be strong enough to work on drawing out impurities but not too strong that it irritates (like those Mudd sachets, you know the ones which are always in chemists!) But as Happygirl has said it might not be the one for her.

I think if you like the Dr.H range you'll like this mask. Wink

Cheers all! sorry Eve I've repeated myself a bit on your DrH posts! This definately looks like a goer, though the thought of her spending even loooonger in the bathroom is depressing! Confused

I used this mask a couple of times and found it abrasive and overly drying. I have sensitive combination skin. In terms of blackhead control, I've had much better success with the Decleor Ylang Ylang oil!

For you ladies who have commented that its a bit harsh or hard, i've a little tip for you.
Dr Hauschka recommends that you can tailor the mask to suit your need by adding up to eight pumps of the cleansing milk and a few pumps of your facial toner. Now the important bit.... when the mask is on your face, as it dries out apply a damp compress to moisten the mask again as the benefits of doing this are far greater than letting it fry on your face. I know it doesn't say this in the instruction leaflet but I think it mentions it on the website

I don't like it. It's too troublesome to use. And most importantly, my face get "yellowish" after washing everytime. Confused

Let me try it later some time

For those who are interested in buy it:

I recently found out that you can buy the refill pack at http://www.drugstore.com/templates/stdcat/default.asp?catid=25317&trx=MSBC&trxp1=50463&trxp2=3&trxp3=25317&trxp4=2&cmbProdBrandFilter=50463&brandname=Dr.Hauschka%20Skin%20Care&prodcount=6&list=1

It's only $27.95 versus the jar price ($37.95).
