My Opinion:
Every now and then my skin will break out really badly, and several years ago when Proactiv was launched in HK, I got the PA solution kit to try out.
This kit came with a cleanser, toner, moisturizer and this mask. I've never reviewed this kit before because I've only used it twice and end up gaving it away. The whole set together was just toooooo drying for my skin, I was flaking all over.
The only item from the kit that I've kept was the Refining mask, this is actually a sulfur mask which really helps in controlling oil, but please bear in mind that it smells awful.
Although I've really liked this mask, I don't think I'll be repurchasing, because I was told that acnefree does have a sulfur mask that works in exactly the same way but is a lot cheaper. I think that's what I'm going to try next.
