Now for my overall opinion... First of all, it smells like every mask that you apply with your fingers. I know that doesn't make sense but I feel like they have this cement-like smell. It's not as bad as I describe it. Plus, the smell is temporary. It's only for couple of minutes. It could also be mental. Secondly, it's extremely easy to use. You can use a brush, but I go the lazy way and use my fingers. I apply a thin layer all over my face and let it sit for 20 minutes. Then I wash it off. Lastly, I noticed my skin glows and looks youthful right after I wash the mask off. I love how my skin looks! The fine/deep lines aren't even noticeable. Once I wake up, my skin doesn't look the same as the night before. It's not as youthful but it does look better than without using it. The fine lines diminished a bit but I still notice the deep lines. With time and making sure you use it often, I can see the skin improving. I hate to admit this but I wasn't dedicated. I think I'm much better with sheet masks because of my laziness. If you're not lazy, this is good and highly recommended!
