  3. I used this mask last night and I loved it! What I noticed most is how incredibly soft my skin is! Im 16 and my skin type is really strange actually and i wasn’t sure how well this mask would work. I dont necessarily have large pores but i do have blackheads on my nose and chin. My skin is not very oily. Its more dry than anything. I had a spot on my cheek that was bleeding last night and now it is completely healed and easily covered with a little makeup. I have tried proactive and skin ID but neither worked for me. I go to a facialist once a month and I wanted to try this mask I found on Pinterest. I had just ran out of OJ so I used lemon juice and it worked very well. I didn’t really experience any redness, but it could be that my skin is used to peels and other stuff. I told my mom about it and she saw how good my skin looks and wants to try it. I will definitely tell my friends about how great this is. I was worried a few minutes after putting it on because I couldn’t move my face at all. But I guess that’s how you know it’s working! Thank you for posting this mask! It will definitely be a part of my routine.
