Out of all of the masks that L’Oreal offers, this would be my least favorite. After using this mask multiple times, I didn’t see a HUGE difference in my skin. I try new masks all the time so I came across this one again after some time. I decided to use the mask, and I got a little different experience. I felt the mask get warm on my face and give a tightening sensation. I was kind of surprised because I don’t remember experiencing this before. After leaving the mask on for about 25 minutes, I cleaned my face off to still be disappointed. No real big difference in my skin. Most masks that are a mask and exfoliating duo, don’t really amount to much for me. I rather buy an exfoliator that can do its job and a mask to do its job but separately. According to the website, the mask is to minimize pores and allow the skin to feel fresh and smooth. Well, I do not agree with that. My skin felt soft but that is one thing I expect a mask to do, at the least. I also have a comment about the unclogging of pores and tightening. The latest experience and feeling of tightening didn’t actually tighten my pores at all. And this mask is harder to remove than most, so it actually requires a facial wash afterward or some product will be left behind (which by default means it doesn’t unclog pores).

Ratings and Comments:
I definitely wouldn’t recommend this mask. The other masks are better at performing than this L’Oreal mask. There are others you could get worth the money and would do more for your skin.

I give this product a 1 out of 5. It didn’t break my skin out, so there is something positive from using this product.
