On to my thoughts:
I thought this was a nice cleanser. It had a silky feel to it and my skin felt soft and clean after using it . I prefer scrubs/exfoliating cleansers over this type of cleanser but it was a nice switch up from the other ones that I am using. I know not everyone likes gritty scrubs and they may irritate peoples' skin. I like the ingredients that are in this cleanser and that it is great for people with sensitive skin.

On to my thoughts:
This mask is for people with normal to oily skin. It suggests to leave this mask on from 10-20 minutes. I leave it on for about 10 minutes. It has a nice cooling feeling once you apply it to skin. It also has a strong peppermint/eucalyptus scent and you can definitely feel the menthol in the mask. I actually liked the scent over normal "earthy" smelling mud mask. You do need to be careful and not apply this mask too close to your eyes though. The strong scent/ingredient does irritate my eyes a bit when I apply it too close to them. I don't know how to explain this other than like when you are cutting an onion and the fumes/odor make your eyes water, the strong scent of this mask does the same. Other than that, I really love this mask! The cooling feeling is really soothing and my skin feels super clean and fresh after using it. My skin texture does look improved after using this and it just looks nicer overall. I don't have super oily skin so I haven't noticed it looking less oily after using this mask but someone with really oily skin may notice a difference. Either way, I really liked this mask and enjoyed using it.
