Sadly I have major blackheads around my T-zone and haven't found anything yet that really helps with this issue due to my sensitive skin. I tried this mask for the first time last night, and my skin definitely didn't feel dry or tight/stripped of moisture. It felt soft and velvety, and I definitely thought my pores looked cleaner. The only downside was that the mask because dusty and powdery once dried, which was a little much for me already dry eyes and sinuses (thanks, spring allergies). Side note, I'd post the photo I took of myself with the mask on, but I worry I'd scare all of you off.
After I rinsed the mask off with warm water, I massaged in some SW Basics Cream mixed with 2 drops of lavender oil. A little goes a long way! I purchased the cream recently at Follain, since after meeting her and using her other products I'm now a die-hard SW Basics/Adina Grigore fan girl.
