I got this as a sample from the shop to try it. I like the fact that it doesn't have a strong smell. Tried this product for 3 months 3 times a week and I did not get the pore minimizing effect the product claims to have. Product looks like light grey mud and has a bit of the cooling effect once applied. After I apply a thin layer and wash it off after 10 minutes, my face feels very clean, smooth and comfortable. Will continue to use it as a normal mud pack mask.
I have been fans of Kiehls since years ago, still there is quite a few products in my skincare routine. This clay mask cleanse the skin well especially those clogged pores. It does minimise pores in a full effect! The application is easy as usual as the washoff mask. Apply a thin layer which can fully cover your skin, leave it for 10-15minutes and then rinse it off with lukewarm water. At the beginning, you might feel a little bit temperature on your skin, but it does not really matter. The result is even more observable to use it once in 3 days continuously. To be honest, the price is totally affordable such a large tub that can last for at least 3 months. However, packaging can be improved as it is harder to use it when hitting the bottom.
It minimises pores.It has a mud like texture. Very soft and gentle , doenst irritate my skin. The price is high but totally worth it. Your skin will turn out smooth and soft after using it. Love the deep cleansing which really minimises my pores and prevent blockage especially after I wear a heavy makeup. It doesnt irritate your skin nor make your epidermis thinner. It is thus suitable for sensitive skin too
Pros: non-drying, smells good, pore minimizer!!
My favorite thing about this product is: Pore Minimizing in full effect!
I am usually hesitant to use clay masks because I always seem to break out terribly after them. The Rare Earth masque was totally different! Since I started using it, I've seen a major reduction in blackheads and any break outs. It wasn't over drying and a thin layer is all you need for the full effect. I've been struggling with clogged pores and this made my pores virtually disappear. I've never had that kind of success with a masque before!! Truly a great product that didn't upset my super sensitive skin! I'm able to use it twice a week and I love it.
Been using this for a while now and i can say that its pretty worth the money considering the amount of product there is. You really only need a small amount to cover your whole face because its recommended to be used as a thin layer and for not more than 10 minutes on the face.
Great for days where i feel my skin is really congested or when i just feel the need to deep cleanse my pores.
It does however feel a little warm on the face or a slight tingling feeling at times and pretty much smells like clay. However, i don't find this to be a very big issue.
