I’m a woman of color and I use this mask at least twice a week and it really makes my face skin smooth and hydrated. I have very sensitive skin and my skin hasn’t had a negative reaction to this mask. I have used it for at least two years. It’s very hydrating and I notice it helps my skin absorb my make up better. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is I find hard to wash it off my face. I usually keep on for at least 10 minutes before washing off & I have to rinse it off for a while. You need to be patient. If you can put up with rinsing it off, I recommend this mask.
