I didn't find this product amazing at all. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone to purchase. I actually found the mask stung quiet a lot on my skin while using and even after and I don't ever usually have a problem with sensitive skin or anything like that. I wouldn't mind the stinting if you saw visible results but I really couldn't see any difference from before and after I've been using it weekly for about 4-5 weeks now. I found charcoal face masks to be much more beneficial and a noticeable difference on my skin.
Not for me but would be great for someone else!I have oily/combination skin and I found this was too much for it to handle. It can sting quite a bit upon initial application and it usually passes within a few mins. I never left this on for more then 5-7 mins and I always felt over the next few days my skin was irritated and red. I feel for someone who has acne and thicker textured skin this would be great to decongest and refine but on my thin...Read More
A good weekly maskverified purchaserI love the smell of this mask, and even more than that the feeling on my skin after I've used it. I found it a little bit stingy the first time I applied to my skin, but the feeling went away quickly and then it just felt like any other mask.
I would recommend sticking to the instructions for application and removal and I've realised really make a difference.

Alpha-H always reliableverified purchaserHave just started using this but feels great on my skin and hoping to see results on pores soon. Always love Alpha-H as gentle but effected and smell great.
makes my pores look very smallthis mask eliminates pores and makes my skin look very soft and clear. Definitely recommend!
Great!I Absolutely love this clay mask! It smells amazing, and it leaves your skin feeling so smooth after removing it. My skin feels so refreshed and clear after using this mask. Definitely recommend for acne-prone, oily, blemished skin.
Light and good for regular useverified purchaserThis is a much lighter masque than the classic clay-setting style. Goes on smoothly, has a nice tingle, and hasn't made my skin overreact.
Good maskWith weekly use I have noticed my skin to be clearer and less prone to redness. The jojoba separates this from other clarifying masks as it is quite moisturising/nourishing.
I haven’t noticed a reduction in clogged pores on its own, although if used with other products with high glycolic/salicylic acid concentrations it goes help to soften clogged pores.
Typical face maskverified purchaserI recently bought this as i absolutely love the alpha-H skincare range. To be honest, i dont feel that it refines my pores. It does make me feel fresh and makes my skin look a little clearer (i have medium acne) , however i would say there is no difference between the mask and anything you could buy from your local pharmacy.
Lovely mask!Doesn't dry out my skin like other refining masks and makes my skin actually feel nourished and plump. Smells amaaazing also!
Love !I use this mask once a week, it leaves my skin looking clean and clear

Good!Good product for oily skin! It has a rich aroma and texture of rapid absorption. Remember to use it for only 10 minutes because it can dry out your skin. I recommend using it only in areas affected by acne and enlarged pores.
Helped with pores on noseI have really large pores on my nose and I found this has helped with making them less visible. I try to use it once or twice a week.
SurprisedI'm not normally a massive fan of masks, but I find this one to be really calming and nourishing. I wouldn't say it necessarily makes my pores 'smaller', but it does smooth my skin and make it soft - my tinted moisturiser can glide pretty effortlessly over the top! Also a great mask for dehydrating seasons such as winter. Would recommend.
Amazing spot treatmentI really like this mask, but mainly for a spot treatment when I get the occasional pimple appear. I have oily skin prone to blackheads and find that it helps my pores and oil and blackheads immediately after but the effects don’t tend to last long. When I do get a pimple, at any stage from the painful red mark to having the whitehead pop out, I will apply this before bed (with a cotton bud to prev...Read More
CalmingWhile it doesnt reduce my pores it does calm my oily skin down and leave it feeling even and soft. I use fortnightly!
Wouldn't buy againI used this last night for the first time & my skin started burning within 5 seconds. Washed off straight away & won't use again. uch a waste of money & very odd considering I use cleansers, toner, moisturisers that are all Alpha H brand with no issues at all.
Clears clogged poresThis is such a great mask! I have the first signs of ageing type of skin but still get breakouts and have congested pores and this mask was absolutely amazing! It clears out clogged pores and leaves skin so clear and bright without overdrying! Love it!!
Pore refininganything that states pore refining im a bit funny on! you cant change the size of your pores with just using a mask - it may make them appear smaller!!!!!
Love it!This masked made my skin feel so refreshed and clean. Really worked well to clean out my pores. I do recommend using up this mask quickly as I had to throw out the remaining due to the product turning to liquid. I believe this is my fault as I didn’t use it up fast enough.
Great if your skin is feeling oilyGreat if your skin is oily or you have larger pores, in summer this is a godsend. I love to apply this at least once a week, especially in the warmer months, my skin gets oily and greasy and this helps all this
Great for oily skinGreat product i use it weekly and as a spot treatment which will dry my pimples out by the morning. Does tingle abit but its not unbearable, it doesnt dry completely hard like other masks ive tried which can be uncomfortable. It has a amazing smell and i saw results as soon as i washed it off.
A nice maskA pretty nice mask that I’m pretty happy with. It’s not amazing, and I wouldn’t say that I’ve seen outstanding results, but it generally helps with shine. I’ve got combination skin and my t-zone is prone to shine. Doesn’t dry out my skin either.
Good mask that doesn't feel like it drains your skinI like this mask as it doesn't feel like it drains all the hydration out of your skin. Skin feels smooth after it. Don't know if it really clears out my pores, still have some areas of blackheads. I've been using it weekly for 3 weeks now, but will stick to it as I like how smooth and clean my skin feels after it
GoodThis mask helps to keep my face clean and fresh. I do find it helps to clean out my pores
Simple and effectiveLove this mask - I use it once a week and it has worked really well at keeping my skin clear and fresh. It gives my skin a great tightening feeling, but doesn’t feel chemical-heavy or drying. Will definitely continue to buy - fantastic quality at an amazing price!
Another great maskI purchased this mask as the the other one Alpha H does wasnt available online - but this one is amazing too thank god! Skin felt refreshed and definitely could see a difference! Love the Alpha H range - cant wait to use it this week!
Shooting the skinlove the smell of the product and feel of my skin after use.
the texture of the product is delightful. Price of the product if incredibly affordable too
love thisGoes on wet but soaks into skin as it dries and pulls the skin tight. Helps reduce breakouts. I pop it on my chin before bed when I have a hormonal breakout looming and it reduces the severity / pimples reduce overnight. I use Alpha-H Liquid Gold Smoothing + Perfecting Mask after and they are a lovely weekend mask routine treat, skin feels soft and clean after.
Smells so good.This face mask is a great all round mask. Leaves my skin brighter, help’s clear any lingering breakouts. I tend to only use this once every couple of weeks as any more than that makes my skin quite reactive.
Ahead of its time!This product is clearly one step ahead of the rest in this field. My skin felt and looked amazing after just one use. I'm very happy with this purchase.
Smooth skinI love this mask when I am having a breakout or I just want to unclog my pores, I have Oily skin and this is perfect for really cleaning everything out and reducing the inflammation. I use this in rotation with the other mask from Alpha H and a green clay mask and I find it really cleans out my pores and leaves my skin smoother. Only thing but its not a negative but I try and use this a few days a...Read More
Good for oily skinGreat in summer and when my skin is feeling oily, congested, I have pimples and pores, or a combination of all of the above. A very purifying mask, leaves the skin feeling clean and refreshed, very clear.
Better skinI use this product and my charcoal mask when my pores or blackheads are out of control and the results are amazing. Recommend it
Smoother skinYou can feel the mask working on your face; it gives off a warm tingling feeling. The skin feels really smooth and soft after washing the mask off, but I'm not sure how effective it is at clearing the pores (the main reason I bought it for). The smell is quite strong, but it's a pleasant refreshing smell.
GreatIt seems like this is the only product that works for the week before my period, when my skin is acting crazy.
I have taken a star out just because, for some reason, it burns a little when used it above my lip. It is strange since it works perfectly on the rest of my face and neck but just to be sure I avoid that part.
Really works!I use this once a week, it's very quick, and very effective. You can actually feel it working. Pores are noticeably tighter afterwards! I've been using it for a couple of months now and it's really improving my skin, especially on my nose.
Affordable and works wellI was looking for a more affordable versions of the eve lom rescue mask and this fits the bill.
Feels Amazing!I love this product. It feels so nice on your skin and it's as if I can feel my pores getting smaller when I use it.
It significantly has helped with the size of my pores and it is great for when I have breakouts. Highly recommend!
My favourite maskI use this mask 2/3 times a week. Once a week I will use the micro cleanse scrub after my mask has been on for 10 minutes and just let them both work together for a further 5 or so minutes. Alone this product clears out my pores and reduces any blemishes I have. Combining it with the micro cleanse steps up the benefits of both products I find. This mask doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry or tight a...Read More
Awesome.This product (and the product range) is incredible on my 36 year old face. Feels like I've had an expensive facial at a salon. My skin has cleared up so much after using this product.
AmazingThis product is clearly one step ahead of the rest in this field. My skin felt and looked amazing after just one use. I'm very happy with this purchase.
Absolute favourite maskI have fairly oily, sensitive skin and enlarged pores across my nose and cheeks. I use this every Sunday night and get amazing results. My skin feels renewed and is so clear and soft after using this mask. I've noticed my skin doesn't get as oily as it used to as well since I've been using it. A little goes a long way. I bought mine in December and have still got at least half left now in May.
LuxuriousSmells amazing and feels luxurious on the skin.
Nice mask for congested, dull skinI have mostly dehydrated skin with some congestion & blackheads on my t-zone. I have found this mask great when I need a deep cleanse. It does just that without drying out my skin
such a good mask!I have such an oily t zone and enlarged pores. Usually face masks do nothing for me! I found that this product shrunk my pores and helped control oil production. If you have oily skin you need to get this :)
Smells goodI use this mask bi weekly in between a skinstitut hydration mask. It smells good and gives me a clear and clean complexion
Only use it in problem areasI enjoy this mask, I steam my face before using for a few minutes and apply this only to my problem areas, nose, chin tiny part of cheeks and forehead. It’s too drying for the rest of my face but is great on my nose. My pores seem much clearer and have no breakouts from clogged pores on my chin at all. Really enjoy this and it’s so cost effective for what it does
Best mask I've ever usedI'd previously bought a starter pack of Alpha H products to try as my skin had become quite oily as of late. This mask is a definite must have for me and something I needed to repurchase ASAP!
I've never used a mask that cleaned my pores so thoroughly before, in turn making them appear much smaller. I use it once a week to keep my skin looking super fresh. I feel like my skin is tighter aft...Read More
GreatI love this mask! It has helped my skin so much since I started using it. I love how it feels on and my skin just loves it. I am definitely recommending this product to others! I will be buying more of this!
average maskI made a mistake to scrub my face before using this mask. This mask has a warm feel when applied to the face so having scrub my face before putting it on it gives a slight burning feeling. But after washing off the mask my skin feels cleaned
The mask is very good for oily skin, it's clay based an absorbs the oil very well. I use it once a week and I am always left with a very smooth and matt...Read More
A really well formulated maskI have been using this mask along with the liquid gold mask, liquid gold treatment and Alpha H cleansers for about 14 years. I have dry skin and a bit of redness as my skin is very pale. I really love using this mask, it smells so nice, and feels so good on. I use the masks once a week and it usually lasts for around 6 months. Helps with pores, blackheads, pimples, etc. also great just to spot tre...Read More
GoodIt smells awesome and does what it says but I don't find it terribly useful in minimising my pores or even at the very least, purify my oily skin. It's a bare minimum product.
Alpha-H Balancing and Pore Refining Mask with Jojoba OilIt smells awesome and does what it says but I don't find it terribly useful in minimising my pores or even at the very least, purify my oily skin. It's a bare minimum product.
Great maskThis is one of the best masks I've ever tried. It immediately refreshes my complexion and tightens pores. I've tried ultraceuticals and janssen masks before, and I'd say Alpha-H provides the same results for almost half the price of those other brands. Will definitely purchase again.
Weekly must have!I have been using this mask for a few weeks now and can honestly say I’ve noticed a huge difference to my skin texture! It’s so convenient that it only needs to be on my face for 10mins before washing off and leaving a smooth texture behind- my skin feels amazing after using this! I have combination skin and it truly makes it feel so much better! My skin glows the next day after using this!
Horrible!Used this mask twice and both times it has burned my skin so bad and left my face bright red until the next morning. I’ve had strong acid masks at salons and felt less pain than I’ve experienced from this mask. Would not recommend for anyone!
Smells beautiful and works wonderfullyI have been using this mask along with the liquid gold mask, liquid gold treatment and Alpha H cleansers for about 14 years.

Feels amazing!I love the way this mask makes my skin feel! I’ve only used it a couple of times but after each time my skin feels so soft. I feel like it also calms down my skin when it’s breaking out. Love it!
Smells niceI got this for my bf and he really liked it, he doesn’t have bad skin anyways just a few spots pop up from clogged pores/bacteria do this nice light weight face mask helped with that
LoveLove this face mask, it does sting for a few minutes when you first apply but then it's gone. Skin feels nice and clean after using.
LoveSome of my favourite masks! Theres no fun colour, peel, smell, or sparkle to these but they really do the job!
Glow!Get ready to tingle! It does what it says and more, my weekly mask no question. I have dry skin but get the odd pimple, this mask zaps those little buggers, refines and moisturisers! Look fresh and toned
Nice MaskI purchased this by accident but after giving it a go found it left my skin feeling and looking nice. Would say that it is more for mature skin though.
Great - does what it claims!I love this mask. I don't have oily skin, but this is great when my skin fluctuates. It feels refreshed and clean after, but not dry. There is a bit of stinging on any little bumps, but it just feel like its working. I'm a fan of the smell, but I like herbal smells (not everyone does).
deep cleanseI recently purchased another bottle of this and was reminded again why I love it so much. It’s a smooth clay formula that smells amazing and gives a really thorough clean out of your pores without feeling harsh on the skin. Since using it again my skin is less congested, softer, and visibly brighter
SoothingI use this mask weekly and whilst initially there is a lot of burn and tingling for me it dries quite quickly leaving soft pore-reduces skin behind. I find the jojoba oil really helps to counteract the tingling sensation
Great ProductI've only recently started using this product but it feels great when it's on and my face looks nice and refreshed when it's washed off.
loved it from first usei recently purchased this mask and have loved it from my first use. it is a bit tingley at the start but really tightens pores and evens my skin. i use it weekly.
Smells incredibleThis gives skin a really lovely pick me up - super hydrating, feels nourishing, and smells incredible. I love the way my skin feels during and after using this.
Prefer the rest of the rangeI like the alpha h range so was looking forward to using this product but I just found didn’t do much for my skin and wasn’t too pleasant to use, kind of burned and I usually can tolerate hardcore peels. But just didn’t see any result worth it.
Loving it so farOrdered this after reading a tonne of reviews. Seemed to calm my hormonal skin. A little goes a long way, so won't be needing to restock too often.
Loving it so farOrdered this after reading a tonne of reviews and it seemed the best fit. I love other Alpha-H products. It seemed to calm my hormonal skin. I little goes a long way, so won't be needing to restock too often, which is great value for money.
Brighter fresher skinI love to use this when my skin needs a pick me up. It dries down fairly fast but doesn’t feel tight and uncomfortable while it’s doing so, so I don’t feel like I need to instantly wash it off or scratch my face and can relax with it on. Afterwards, my skin is refreshed - looks brighter and feels smoother. I always feel like the serums and moisturisers I use afterwards sink in more quickly than th...Read More
VERY NICEI use a lot of ALPHA-H products and love them all. This one was no exception. My skin tingles a little when I first put this on but then settles down. Once I have washed off, my skin feels so soft and looks fresh & radiant! I use this once a week and love how my skin is looking xx
YESSSS!The two Alpha H masks I have tried are by far the best ever. They dont dry all hard and crackly which is usually satisfying, but they stick well and cleanse out the pores amazingly!
Smooth glowing skin!I use this product when my skin is in need of a pick me up and find instant brighter fresher glowing skin! Plus it smells delicious and is super easy to apply.
Love it!This mask smells very strongly of essential oils so if that's not your thing, you should avoid it. Personally, I love the scent and I also love how fast it dries. It's only supposed to be on for 10min max so its great for super impatient people. Skin definitely feels clearer after using it for two months :)
Love, love, loveIf you haven't already guessed, I love this product. Its a little bit of luxury in my weekly skincare routine. This mask is great for my combination skin helping to clear up my oily t-zone and also remove the layers of flaky dry skin leaving my face feeling refreshed and smooth. It does have a strong lavender and floral scent but I am a fan.
WOW!It tingles at first. Then with a thin layer i didnt know what to expect, its pretty clear when it drys and only takes 10 minutes! My skin is left feeling soft, smooth and clean. Cant wait for next week to have another go at this!
My favourite!At the minute this is my favourite pore mask. I noticed a difference immediately after use and I have been experiencing less blackheads around my nose and chin after continuing to use this product regularly. I have sensitive combination skin and it has not dried my skin out at all.
Great maskSuch a great mask to use, i noticed that my skin looked much more even and clear after using it. I usually only apply a very thin layer which is all that is needed. It has a really nice lavender/botanical smell which is great!
Also great to use as a spot treatment, it helps to speed up the process and reduces redness and inflammation
does the jobHave used this face mask with other products in the Alpha- H range, left my skin feeling clean and smooth, but thats about it! not the best face mask, but does the job
WorksThis mask is great to use with other Alpha H products. It's not my favourite mask in their range, but it works.
Beautiful maskI love this mask. It really cleans and firms the skin without drying it out. My skin feels lovely detoxed and less saggy after. I’m over 40 with normal skin...
Neither here nor there - average product for the priceI bought this mask based on reviews here and unlike other customers, found it disappointing based on price and expectations set by the manufacturer and other reviewers. It did not refine the appearance of pores as suggested, had a tendency to separate (oil and clay) when dispensed from the tube and was heavily scented (I don't mind but those with sensitive skin may struggle with it). It did not re...Read More
greatGot this as a free sample with my order. I was pleasantly surprised.It tingled my skin initially but after washing it off after 10mins i felt my skin glowing. I then moisturised and was quite happy with the result. i'll be ordering this with my next beauty hall.
Smooth skinI love how this makes my skin feel after. Tight and smooth and definitely looks clearer. I really like the smell too even though it’s quite strong, I find this relaxing. I have fairly sensitive skin and it does sting a bit ininitially but it’s always fine after I wash it off.
Unsure it does what I need it to.whilst this product does leave my skin appearing smoother and settles down some of the redness, it hasn’t done anything to reduce my pores.
I love Alpha H though so maybe I might just need to try a different mask.
#treatyoselfCombination oily/acne prone skin. After the reviews I thought I'd give this a go for a boost to my daily routine. At first was drying on the skin but once I added the Alpha-H gold liquid to my routine my blemish started to clear up and my skin is looking clear and fresh.
Amazing for clearing skin.This mask works absolute wonders for clearing and reducing breakouts! I have sensitive skin, and it tingles at first but does not irritate it at all. Definitely recommend this product.
Weekly MaskI use this product on a weekly basis. Skin left smooth and refined
Very powerful mask!I love this product! My skin looks amazing after each time I use it. I only put it on my T-zone about every two-three weeks. The reason I do not use it more often is because it gives my skin some irritation and redness. I would not recommend for sensitive or dry skin however, if definitely works!
Skin looks better after using onceMy skin does look better after using this once but my pores look the same. I might need to use this more to see any major differences.
Simply the BEST!I was introduced to Alpha H a few years ago, and have used many of the products. No matter what my latest skincare preference, Liquid Gold is and will always be part of my beauty arsenal.
However I had never been a big mask user. I got masks with facials (about once a year) and a pricey pharmacy brand one I used occasionally. Exfoliating both chemical and physical gave me what I thought was...Read More
Quick instant resultsGreat product if your after a quick pick me up that makes your skin feel super soft and smooth! High recommend
Lovely maskI love this mask and can get on board with the Macadamia and Jojoba oils - which don't seem to bother my combo/oily skin - but I had to take a star off for the old-lady lavender smell. I know that most people love this scent, but I'm not one of them! Other than that, this is a great mask which helps to draw out impurities, improve texture etc.
Great product but it does burnI love this mask. I have acne scarring and occasional breakouts and this product is great to help with that. After using it my pores look smaller, I have less blackheads and my skin looks radiant and refreshed. It does burn quite badly though. To counteract this I lay down on my bed and turn my ceiling fan up to high. The cool wind from the fan cools down the face and you can't feel the burning at...Read More
