I thought that I'd purchase this product since I love using masks. This product does have a strong smell, so if you have an aversion to that I'd stay away. Personally the smell didn't bother me. Very little is needed, and surprisingly it spread well. However, there were lackluster results. Meaning I had absolutely no improvement, but had no bad results either. It just contributed to another layer of cleansing, which at the time a mask is used I don't find it necessary in my regimen.
