I'm Sorry for My Skin Black Mud Mask is another hybrid clay-sheet mask that combines the detoxifying clay with classic easy to use sheet mask concept. To sum up, this stuff is amazing. I love me some Barulab but their price is steep in comparison to these when they are on sale. The major difference between two is that one is less heavy on the skin, hence, people with more sensitive skin are perfectly able to enjoy it.

I'm Sorry for My Skin Black Mud Mask by Ultru: is very good for those who is too lazy to mess with the classic clay masks when you need to apply the clay, wait for certain amount of time and then the most dreadful part - washing it off. I am used to clay masking since my skin is very oily and my pores get clogged quite often. The new innovative clay-sheet mask hybrids are my current favorites because how easy it is to remove the clay off my face.
The clay in sheet masks is more watery almost to an emulsion consistency so that it could adhere to the absorbent sheet mask. The mask that is used in this particular type of masks is very porous in order to permit clay to come in contact with the skin + better ventilation, hence faster drying time. This particular version comes with scented clay that smells like Elizabeth Arden Green tea perfume. It is very fresh and quite strong. Once it is wet, the clay is taupe grey, once it dries it becomes light grey and may crumble off the sheet mask.
The cut of the mask is something worth complaining about. If I compare these to my ultimate favorites from Barulab, Ultru:'s I'm Sorry for My Skin Black Mud Mask has way too much cutouts around the edges of the mask making the application more difficult than it could be. On the other hand the small extra slits around the corners of the eyes is a big bonus that Barulab lacks. As with all clay masks of such kind, they come in two pieces. Very handy as one big sheet would be much harder to apply.
"How it preforms?" you may ask. It does a good job at cleansing out the sebum from the pores. Because clay solution is so mild, it will fit people with more sensitive skin. Of course it is amazing for those with oily and combination skin types. On the skin it feels very cooling at first and then it starts to tighten up when clay hardens. The entire process takes about 20-25 minutes. After it is removed you will notice some clay residue here and there. I'd not advise to rinse your face, even though it is possible. I prefer to go the lazy route and swipe a cotton soaked with my Son & Park beauty water and Voila! Oh, one more thing. Hydrate your skin afterwards by using good moisturizing toner. Do 7-steps routine or use a good moisturizing sheet mask. In that way your skin will be blooming and sparkle like a car after waxing 🙂
