EFFECTIVE BUT STRONG
By RICHARD THE SECOND

About Me Beauty Expert
Comments about SKIN BALANCING Oil-Absorbing Mask - 4 oz:
I HAVE TRIED SAMPLES OF THIS PRODUCT SEVERAL TIMES. IT GOES ON THE SKIN VERY EASILY AND DRIES IN ABOUT 5 MINUTES. HOWEVER IF YOU HAVE VERY SENSITIVE SKIN THE LONGER YOU KEEP IT ON THE STRONGER THE BITE. MY SENSITIVE SKIN CAN ONLY TOLERATE AROUND 5 MINUTES BEFORE IT HURTS TOO MUCH. WHEN I RINSED IT OFF MY SKIN LOOKED SOFT AND SMOOTH., AND THE SKIN REALLY LOOKED CLEANSED. IT'S A GOOD PRODUCT, BUT I WISH THE BITE WASN'T SO STRONG. SO IF YOU HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN PROCEED WITH CAUTION. ALSO YOU WILL DEFINITELY NEED A MOISTURIZER AS IT DOES DRY THE SKIN QUITE A BIT.

About Me Beauty Conscious
I loved the last version of the clay mask which made my skin glow, but after a few attempts this one's not for me. Soon after I apply this my skin becomes itchy and it stings slightly, my skin looks red, blotchy and irritated after I remove it. It would be great to have the old one back!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I believe that this Mask is a great value for what it delivers in comparison to what is available on the market. It feels like it really cleans the skin and leaves the pores tight with a more even skin tone. Its not very easy to apply unless you have a brush and its even harder to rinse off. Best to rinse it off under the shower.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
One use down and obsessed!
By Beth the Bold
I just used the mask and wow! Many of my blackheads were gone! Pores smaller! Skin softer! It did sting while it dried, but not badly. I literally just took it off and begged my husband to let me try it on his nose. I can't wait to see his results!
from Bay Area CA
Excellent product, for all the people complaining about "that" space in the top, just unscrew it and squeeze directly from the tube. Very nice consistency clay mask non messy just beautiful.

Absorbs oil, shrinks pores, tingles/burns
from Los Angles, CA
About Me Minimalist
I tried Skin Balancing Oil Absorbing Mask from 2 samples (needed 2 for full coverage). This is a high quality clay mask that reminds me of much more expensive products I've used in the past. The SB mask tightens as it dries, and pulls out a lot of oil. My pores were visibly smaller after use. My skin felt soft, and was not irritated or over dried. The mask has a natural scent which I found enjoyable.While the SB mask does burn when applied, it doesn't seem any different than other clay masks in that regard. I think it might be a property of the clay ingredient. I found it tolerable, in a way pleasant, because it was tingly and cooling.I think the SB mask would be great for weekly or bi-weekly use, but I can see that it might also work more often as a spot treatment for troubled areas. I will definitely consider this mask for full purchase once I finish what I have on hand!

gentle, not that special for the price
from Pacific Northwest
Having tried this in sample format, I was very pleased that it didn't irritate or overdry my skin as clay masks tend to do, even on my sensitive cheeks. But I don't think I will buy this in the full size because it isn't any more special than the green clay I buy in bulk and mix with water myself.

I love this mask! I use it once a week along my T-Zone. My skin is super sensitive but this does not irritate it at all. I love how you can see each pore on your face as it dries. It makes me feel like it is really concentrating on your pores. I have noticed a reduction in pore size after two uses, and I am very satisfied.
By Ashley the Skincare Junkie

I have combination skin that leans oily in the T-zone. I've purchased higher end masks in the past that have worked great, but they a lot of them are poorly rated on beautypedia, as are their drugstore counterparts. I prefer using drugstore masks because they are cheaper and then I usually use them more often. But I decided to try Paula's Choice because I'm slowly converting my whole skincare regimen to Paula's Choice. This mask is great! I notice a huge difference in the texture of skin after using this product. I try to use it more often during that time of the month because I have hormonal breakouts and I think it makes a difference. Sometimes I spot treat areas and don't use it all over my face every time. I do want to get into a habit of using it once every 7-10 days or so and more often in a spot treatment kind of way during that time of the month.
This mask has helped me so much. The minimal stinging doesn't ward me off from using it. It is the only mask that makes my blackheads look alot smaller and less noticeable. I currently use it about two times a week now.
