I usually really like the Essano products, they've all worked great for me in the past but for some reason this one wasn't too good for my skin. I cleansed my face like I usually would and applied the clay mask and left it for 15 minutes, then washed it off. I really liked the feel of it on my skin and was amazed at how soft my skin felt but the next day I had lots of breakouts which really bothered me because I was really wanting this to work on my face. I decided to try it again a couple of weeks later and it did the same thing, I had breakouts the next day. I ended up giving the mask to my friend because I really didn't want it to go to waste.
