This mask is truly a Holy Grail! I've never seem much beyond few-hour results from any mask including very expensive ones. Masque Vivant instantly makes my skin appear smoother, pores tighter, and my complexion clearer and even. Using it 2-3x a week I swear any premature lines (I'm 25 but they are sadly real) on my forehead and around my mouth have been reduced and my complexion just gets more and more even. I haven't found that it makes a huge improvement to my spots and little breakouts, but they do seem to heal a bit faster. Considering it's the same or cheaper price per oz. as department store brands I had been using, I can't believe how much bigger of a difference I see. The smell is intense the first time, but as with all BR you build an immunity... or you love it is a strange way (it reminds me of Bragg's Liquid Aminos and I like it).
