No product can actually minimize the size of your pores. Your pores can be the size because of genetics, and if they have dirt and oil in the them. Products like this that say it will minimize the size of your pores work to remove the dirt and oil to help shrink them down (because they become larger when they have this dirt/oil/blackheads&whitehead) like when you squeeze it and you can see the empty hole, it shrinks back down to "normal" size... HOPE THAT HELPS :)

I must admit I'm bad at using products consistently, so I'm not a good person to ask if this works consistently. However, when I feel like my pores are really congested, I'll exfoliate and then crack this stuff out and I always feel like it helps at least a little. I don't know if it really makes a HUGE difference as far as really getting junk out right away, but it really loosens things up. If I use an extractor (the right way....) or my fingernails (the wrong way.... don't do this!) after the mask to squeeze blackheads out, man, that stuff just comes out like crazy. So, it's doing SOMEthing. I wish I could get my skincare regiment figured out so I could use it more consistently, then I can give you a better answer!

Yes - this worked for me to remove blackheads. When I first used this I was in my early 20s and sophmore year in college. At that time, it did seem to make my skin look brighter - but also made my skin seem oilier and led to more breakouts. I went through one tube and left it at that.
BUT now, in my mid-20s my skin seems to have calmed down quite a bit but I still have an issue with large pores and blackheads. I loved how the mask brightened my skin so I gave it another try and it's my life-saver now that I am trying to get perfect skin for my wedding. Even after the first use I noticed a remarkable difference in smaller pores, less blackheads, and it did not give me a post-mask breakout like the last time I used this. I admit I have also started doing weekly or so blackhead extractions - but I was doing that before using the product and it seems like the combination works wonderfully.

Ultimately it depends on your skin - but for me with tricky combination skin in my mid-20s this works like a charm.

No, I'd say don't waste your money. I definately think you're better off investing in something good, but this isn't it. I even used it regularly for a while and never saw any improvement in my blackheads (which is why I bought it), and it made me breakout a little. The only thing it did was make my skin a little softer. I'd suggest something by Ole Henrickson, Philosophy, Fresh, or Korres, because I find their products are always at least mildly effective in what they say they'll do. Or the DDF sulfur mask which I've heard is great. I find that all of Bliss's products are a waste of money unless they're on a super sale. Oh, if you can, try to get someone to get you a Clairsonic plus for your b-day! It's expensive, but you wont regret it, it's made a huge difference in my blackheads and in how well other products work.

Steep Clean Mask is formulated to deep clean pores -- including blackheads. Blackheads are definitely a stubborn skin concern, so at bliss, we recommend weekly use of Steep Clean Mask to reduce pore congestion and prevent future blackheads. The powerful enzymes remove dead skin cells that can clog pores and help break up debris clogging pores. Here's a spa tip: after mask is on skin for 15 minutes, use a texture cotton pad or a fresh washcloth to "swipe and lift" blackheads from pores. For stubborn blackheads, spot treat the blackhead prone area 3 times per week.

Yes, it's normal for the product to change consistency and seem to dissolve some. Remember that you are mixing two separate components together--the yellow and the blue--because they will react to each other, chemically, which is what allows the mask to work like it is fresh and effective. Think of toothpastes that contain stripes of various colors: same idea. So the two colored gels react together, and while they're on your face, they are also affecting your skin and the contents of your pores. The eventual change in consistency, in the course of 15 minutes, is a sign that the mask has been doing its job.

Steep Clean Mask can be a helpful tool for breakout prone skin because it contains pore-clearing salicylic acid, enzymes to exfoliate away dead skin cells that can contribute to clogged pores and brighteners to help with post breakout dark spots. It also has an oil controller to help prevent shine and sebum buildup in pores. For those with serious acne, dermatologist consultation is recommended

I would try one of the masks from Boscia first, or even a drugstore Clean and Clear one, before I'd recommend this pricey "mask." To me, this product is not so much a mask, but goes on like an overly thick moisturizer that never dries into a mask. If anything, I think this mask would cause more breakouts because it does not seem to be overly skin clearing, pore unclogging, etc. And as far as dark circles, pigmentation or brightness to skin, no, this product is not worth the hype.

Hi,

I am 26 and was experiencing some acne. My acne was mostly because my pores were really congested. This product is great at purifying the pores and cleaning out a lot of the junk. However, I have found it is most effecetive when used several times per week (I actually use this 5 times per week). This mask is not drying at all, but it's perfect for me because I have somewhat dry skin. If your skin is oily and you are experiencing acne, I would suggest the ole henriksen blemish attack mask. That mask really is great for oilier skin and definitely helps with pimples. You can also use it as a spot treatment when you go to bed at night. Steep Clean is also a great mask, but to see benefits, I think you'll need to use it multiple times per week, so it might get a bit pricey. It has definitely helped my skin though. I actually use both of these masks. I hope they work for you too!

Honestly I don't know if this would be right for you or not. I've never had really bad acne, but I do tend to have a shininess problem, and I don't think this mask helps with the shiny factor. I've also used this when I was breaking out, and it seemed to be way more effective when used with other products that are for oil/acne-prone skin.
I do know that there are some really great drugstore products out there for oily skin that have helped me a lot and are cheaper.
I have the Steep Clean Moisturizer and the Toner Pads and I absolutely love them and they help me when I'm shiny. There are also some powders out there that you can put on over make-up or alone.
As for the eyes, there are some eye creams that are tinted and that might be the best way to go apart from concealer, but I don't know how much this mask with specifically help that.
This is my favorite Bliss mask, though, and in general I think that Bliss is a great way to go for skincare.
I hope this helps!

A face peel removes dead skin to open pores. This product goes deep in the pore to loosen toxins, then the exfoliation takes place when you remove the product with a facecloth. In a day or so, this product will bring the pore clogs to the surface so they can be removed with cleansing and toning. I use both an exfoliator and the Steep Clean--but never at the same time.

Steep clean is a mask you can use to help clean out your pores. You can use it several times per week. For me it has helped immensely with some acne I was experiencing. The peeling groovy product is a serum that you put on your face (up to 2 times per day, although I only apply it at night) and leave on and is like a light microdermabrasion product. After the peeling groovy has sunk in after a couple of minutes, you apply your moisturizer and you're all set. Using these two in combination has really helped my skin!

Steep Clean is a deep pore cleansing mask that also exfoliates the skin. The Groovy Peel is a serum that you put on about 5 minutes before your moisturizer, it helps with reducing the look of large pores and fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps brighten and tone dull and tired-looking complexions. It is very important to have clean skin before using other products, such as serums and moisturizers, so that those products may do their job. The Steep Clean Mask clears out your congested pores. Hope this helps. :)
