Very Very nice
I try to use this masque once a week and it makes my skin brighter and clear. I have a normal skin but get occasional breakouts, this clears out my skin and the pores. This is the only stuff that works for my breakouts!

Clean and soft
Has quite a mild a lovely scent to it, and it doesn't strip my skin - just leaves it clean and soft. I tend to use this once a week, which, combined with my general routine, seems to help. I don't think this does much in clearing the blackheads on my nose, but it certainly keeps things at bay!
It can be quite cool when first put on, as you'd expect it to be, but it doesn't burn like certain other brands can! If you're looking for a gentle introduction to clay masks, this is for you!

In love <3
This masque is by far the best I have ever tried. My skin feels so smooth, soft and clear after using it and I can definetly see my pores are smaller and imperfections redused. The smell is so yummy, if I could eat it I would.lol
Give it a go, any type of skin would definetly benifet from this little beauty.

A gentle deep cleanse
This mask doesn't blow my mind, but that's part of it's beauty- it's just a gentle, deep clean that doesn't strip or overdry my skin, or cause a massive purge of nasties. I use it when I have a few clogged looking pores, or as a gentle extra clean before a moisturising mask. It's cost effective, and for my (slightly oily, yet dehydrated) skin it's just lovely.

This mask is great to get impurities out of the skin. If you are prone to pimples or block pores this is the one. Love that akin products are all natural too.

Works a treat
This mask is great for calming down breakouts. It soothes skin, clears out impurities and reduces redness. It feels lovely and smooth to apply and once washed off I am left with soft, clean calm skin. It removes oil from my skin but does not strip it to the point of feeling dry. The scent is natural and pleasant. The cream is thick but easily spreads. I'm very fussy masks and I would buy this one again.

I love this. Use once a week and makes my skin smoother and softer. Was a bit hesitant as it contains witch hazel but has not dried my skin out.

Great purifying mask
I use this mask twice a week to keep my skin in tip top shape. The mask itself is a green cream which smoothes easily over my face and dries in around 10 minutes. It does tingle my skin a little more than other masks, but it doesn't sting. After rinsing with warm water my face is left feeling clean and soft!!
I have been using this for over 4 months now and I am still on the same tube, so it's great value for money.
The biggest draw card for me to this product is that it's natural, with no added nasties..
I would definately recommend this product to anyone looking for a good purifying mask that's good for your skin!!

One of my go-to masks!
I have two masks that I use frequently, and I alternate between them. I had read that you need a clay based mask for aggravated/acne prone skin, so after some deliberation, I decided to try the A'kin one as I love their products, and also as there was a great GWP on at David Jones.
I'm so glad I did, this goes on smooth and creamy, and feels really cool and tingly on application. It does harden up after about 15 minutes so that's when I wash it off with warm water, and then finish with cool water.

Beautiful Mask for Oily Skin
This is a really lovely mask for those with oily/congested skin. My skin felt totally refreshed and clean after using it. The citrus scent is beautiful, but an be a little irritating to the eyes if you apply it too close to them (which I did once - I've learned my lesson!)
The thing I love about clay masks is they force you to relax for a bit (something I'm not terribly good at!) as you'll drop bits of drying clay all over the place if you try & talk/move around too much. This is a perfect excuse to turn off the phone, pick up a trashy mag and chill out - while doing amazing things for your skin at the same time. Thanks A'kin for yet another winner!
