Texture is like a thick gel- I need to knead the tube to get it out. And you need to use plenty of this to be able to properly peel off.

No, it doesn't feel like other clay masks I've used. It's transparent on the skin and definitely has a thick gel-like texture. It goes on pretty smoothly, dries and then is peeled off.

The red clay mask is not heavy like clay, it is more emollient gel like, a bit goopy to put on but dries to a comfortable cleansing and tightening mask.

Question
Review Authenticity
I'm curious as to why there are (9) reviews in a row from people who have just recently made accounts and have only reviewed 3-4 different First Aid Beauty products (giving all 5-star reviews)? It is nearly every review between Ccm61607 and ending with Leni617, a full page and a half of reviews. I was about to order this mask, and to be frank, it has completely put me off of First Aid products in general (as I assume it is reviewers for them, and not a Sephora issue). Very disappointed. I'd suggest Sephora monitor their reviews more closely.

I am so sorry those reviews put you off because I am a normal, no mess no fuss gal and I really like this product. I agree with you that sometimes reviews that are too effusive can make one a bit suspicious. I overlooked them in this case because I am a biochemist by training and was happy with the ingredient list for this product.

I am a FAB lover and a real person. I personally was amazed at the result from FAB red clay mask. For the first time in many years I have found a product that not only I can use with my skin irritations but a product that provides excellent results. I would freely recommend FAB to anyone with or without skin sensitivities.

I wonder the same thing. I love looking at reviews and seeing a lot of positive reviews gives me a ton of confidence in using the product, especially for acne treatments. But when I buy and try it usually causes a mess of breakouts on my face when people say a certain product is a "miracle worker." I've also read posts on BT about sephora deleting certain reviews. If I were you I would look up reviews on a different website like Makeup Alley.

Question
How does this compare with other popular clay masks for acne/blackheads?
I have little bumps on my forehead/cheeks and blackheads on my nose from clogged pores. I'm looking for a mask to get the oil & other gunk out of my pores and I'm not sure which one to get.
I've been looking at the Origins Clear Improvement Mask and the Boscia Luminizing Black Mask, and I want to know how this compares :) Thanks!

I used the Bosica's Black mask and, it did not deliver the same results. With White heads I noticed that the mask the pus that was in there. Obviously if it's a really big pimple it will not take everything out, but if it's smaller most of the stuff will come out. When it came to the blackheads it has been a longer process for me. But, I can see improvement. I haven't seen a huge improvement in pore size, but I didn't buy the mask to reduce the size of my pores (even though they are on the larger size).

Other masks I have tried have not made my skill feel nearly as good or soft. The Bosica one actually hurt to peel off, and I felt like I was using a good portion of the bottle just to get a think enough layer to cover my face.

I have used Origin products as well as Biore strips and several other clay masks. So far I have only tried this product once, but I was VERY impressed. I'm looking forward to ordering the full-size version and using it again. I think it is much more effective than other products.

I have used all three of these masks and to be completely honest they are all amazing!! However, I recently tried the First Aid red clay mask and it is my absolute favorite!! It was super easy to apply and remove, and left my skin feeling so soft and diminished the appearance of my blemishes only just one use. Definitely a must try!!

I've tried all of those masks and the Origins Clear Improvement worked the best for me for that. I have combo/oily skin and get little bumps on my forehead sometimes. The Origins mask helped clear that up and made my skin overall feel smoother. The FAB mask is more gentle to me and not as effective.

Whats the right way to use it?
When I use a face mask, I wash my face then put it on, leave it on for however long it calls for, then I rinse it off (or if its a peel mask I peel it off) my face, then I use my cleanser, toner, and moisturizer. Is that the wrong way to use it?

I think it is about personal preference and how your skin feels afterwards. I have this mask and I usually at least wipe my face with a damp washcloth to remove any bits I may have missed afterward.

Question
Did anyone else break out after using this?
I got a sample of this and thought the application and peeling was easy enough and pretty cool, although a little painful! Then the next day, I noticed major breaking out. Little tiny zits and inflamed pores. I still have half of the sample left and unsure if I should use it. If this is part of the purging process then I'm ok with it, but what if this is the reaction I get every time I use this? I will not purchase full size until I get some answers!

Look on line regarding the properties of red clay, you will find this reaction is expected as it pulls skin impurities to the surface. This in turn will cause breakouts, but theses "should" subside as the pores clear. So if your skin is heavily congested breakouts will happen.

I had a new surficial whitehead after the first time using it. I believe that those are due to toxins being literally drawn to the skin surface. As the skin clears with use, I'm pretty sure this should reduce.

This product is my go to facial for once per week. I have tried so many with sensitive fair skin and rosacea and exema I thought it was worth the try with a free sample. Well the sample was big enough for two peels and I was converted. The first time I used it I was not too sure, think I may have had a few little tiny little patches not quite a pimple but went away the next day and were barely visible. Now I'm seeing that it helps the fine lines around the eyes crows feet etc are nice and plump for a few days after so I look forward to the next one.

Not many, because you need to use enough each time or else you won't be able to peel it off. Probably 5? Product needs to be kneaded quite a bit to come out of the tube- I feel like you probably lose some product because of the packaging.

A big key to how the mask peels off is the level of humidity when you apply it. The first few times I tried it were right after my evening shower. The mask didn't set up right in my humid bathroom, and I spent ages picking at little areas that stayed sticky. That hurt, and it left red streaks on my skin.

Once I figured out what I was doing wrong, I noticed a HUGE improvement. The mask peeled off in a couple of large pieces that came off more easily than your standard nose strip. Just be careful not to get it in your eyebrows. That still hurts peeling off.

I'm on my second tube of this (at the end), going on my third, and it doesn't hurt at all. It does cling to your face a bit so you need to sort of peel it off, but it's painless imho.

I don't know why they say it's hard to peel off. I liked it so much I bought 3 bottles and I still use it. It can be great for problem areas like chin and if you wet your finger tips before you attempt to peel it will be easier but never should it hurt in my opinion, it never has for me and my skin is ultra sensitive.

This is a peel-off mask, so the act of peeling off results in a certain amount of mechanical exfoliation (because dead skin cells will stick to the mask and be pulled off the skin).
