Kate Somerville Clarifying Mask Review or It Burns Us

Bet you a Kate Spade Handbag that you can guess by the title and the image how this review is gonna go. Yep, that's right I returned this. I almost never return things only if I have a really bad reaction to the product or I hate it enough that I refuse to give it away.

This one was the latter. I hated this so much I didn't even take the time to get a proper product image before I returned this. As the title says it burned. Horribly. I'm talking tears here people, and I have used some intense acne treatments. This however was the most painful one I've ever tried. It warns on the box that your face will be red after use. Of course it will be, because this mask feels like it's burning your face off.

But did it work? Why yes, yes it did. Not as well as some other masks I've used, but it worked. The next morning after using it my acne was smaller and my skin was bright. But it did nothing for my tiny little red scars that are left over from acne. It actually made those look worse.

Since those are what's bothering me the most I'm going to try a few other masks. I currently have the Fresh Umbrian Clay one, and next on my list are the First Aid Beauty Oatmeal Mask, the Ren Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal one and the Glam Glow Super Mud one everyone seems to be loving.

Final verdict? If you can handle the burn, and have severe acne then go for it. It works, but it might not get rid of your scars.
