I’m Sorry for My Skin Green Mud Mask by Ultru: is great hybrid clay-sheet mask that combines the detoxifying clay with classic easy to use sheet mask concept. This concept is amazing! I love me some Barulab but their price is steep in comparison to Ultru: when they are on sale. The Green Mud mask and Barulab Black Clay mask are very similar to each other and can easily be purchased online.

I'm Sorry for My Skin Green 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 on a weekly basis. The new innovative clay-sheet mask hybrids became my favorites because how easy they are to remove off my face.
The clay in sheet masks is quite dense. It is applied in an even layer and feels very soft to the touch. 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 green, almost marine kind of scent. It is very fresh like peppermint and quite strong. Once it is wet, the clay is light green and once it dries it becomes nearly white and may crumble off the sheet mask.
The cut of the mask has it's minor flaws. If I compare these to my ultimate favorites from Barulab, Ultru:'s I'm Sorry for My Skin Green 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.
The performance is outstanding! Green mask does an excellent job at cleansing out the sebum from the pores and shrinking them down. Because clay solution is thicker than in Black Mud Mask, it will fit people with more oily and combination skin types. Of course it is amazing for the rest as well. On the skin it feels extremely cooling and refreshing at first and then it starts to tighten up. That is when clay hardens up. The entire application process takes about 25-30 minutes, slightly longer than with the Black Mud mask. After it is removed you will notice some clay residue here and there but nothing major. 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 or any other astringent toner. Don't forget to hydrate your skin afterwards by using good moisturizing toner or a good hydrating sheet mask in order to restore moisture levels. 7-skin method would be great if you have dry skin and you used this clay mask.
