This is a great mask especially for normal to combination skin. I guess it's one of Sothy's newer masks. It is white and creamy in texture and your face feels really soft and clean afterwards. It has a mattifying effect and I think I notice pores look minimized. I didn't notice any tightness and there's virtually no scent to it. It's really gentle. I would definitely use this again. I am also interested in trying Sothy's mask for normal to combo skin and Sothys oxygenating mask if anyone has any reviews on these...

I've just finished a whole tube of this that I had been using on and off for about six months. This is a nice mask though not something that I get dramatic "vitality" results from, and hence not something I would repurchase.

The mask is white and creamy in texture with an almond scent to it. It's targeted at normal/combo skins and you're meant to leave it on for 15 minutes and in this time it sets but doesn't dry so much that it feels uncomfortable. I usually forget to take this off until about 30 minutes has passed and there's still no tight feeling (even though I think this may have some clay in it). I haven't had any clogged pores or breakouts from this.

I think this mask tries to be too many things at once - it seems that it does moisturise a bit and also tries to purify the skin at the same time. It's too gentle for my skin I think (might be good for sensitive skins?) and hence the only effect that I really see is that my skin looks matte afterwards and feels comfortable but this doesn't "wow" me. I think even Sothys might have some doubts about what this mask is really supposed to do, given their "leaves the skin clean and in good form" write-up Razz

It's good for hydrated skin for cleaning pores. Will not get dry after use. But the cleansing ability is not as good as other "clay mask".
