MAC Volcanic Ash Thermal Mask Review

I am LOVING this product! I purchased the mask after a subbie's encouragement and I am so impressed. First, I washed my face with my usual cleanser and applied the mask immediately to my damp face with wet hands (water activates the warming sensation.) The intense heat felt great on my tired face! Although the sensation only lasts about five seconds, it allows the mask to work deeper and help unclog your pores from impurities. I felt like Shakira in La Tortura video while smearing the black mask all over my face lol.
Because the heat is activated on contact with water, I began applying it to my problem areas which are my nose (clogged pores) and chin (menstrual breakout) before spreading it all over-careful to avoid the sensitive eye area! The mask only requires five minutes to work its magic and washing it off was a breeze! My skin felt very soft and the blemish on my chin which was inflamed before the mask has reduced considerably! I was actually worried the mask would irritate that area so I was thrilled to discover the complete opposite! I have a feeling that this mask, along with my current cleanser and the Volcanic Ash exfoliator will be just the thing to clear my stubborn pores and make my skin glow!
I highly recommend giving the mask a try and I can't wait to see what my skin looks like a month from now using this mask once a week. =)
