I LOVE this mask so much. I use it on a clean face, before bed. Suggested use is to do your full routine and then utilize the mask. I simply apply the mask after I wash my face and I wake up in the morning with hydrated, glowing, dewey skin. I feel that is smoothes my complexion, brightens my skin, and calms down irritation, such as redness and/or acne. I would reccomend this product to everyone of all skin types. It does not leave any sort of residue on your pillow either. It is soft, and thin on the face. I will come back for this product time and time again.
