-I have used this 2 times and i found it really helpful in drying out whiteheads and making my skin more glowing.

-Its a good facial mask for deeply cleansing the skin by staying at home, i will do purchase the full packaging as it is really good for oily skin type.

Cons

-As it contains some strong ingredients like tea tree , alcohol denat so it is not good for sensitive skin type.

-To use this facial mask in winter season can make skin more drier and it is not so suitable for dry skin type people.

-During its application i feel slight tingling sensation which can be sharp for sensitive skin types.

-Its very difficult to remove the mask at once as it menthol grains gets little stuck to the skin, so it gets messy to remove it quickly.
