I have been using the AC Clean Up Pink Powder Spot for years and have gone through many bottles of it. So I wanted to try out this mask because it might help too. Having used it for more than 2 months now, I would say it is pretty effective yet not drying at all. I use this AM and PM after cleansing if I have some trouble to address. This helps prevent breakouts for brewing zits, helps calm down angry inflamed ones and helps the healing process faster.
