Question can masks help acne?

i tried the queen helene mint mask b4 & it felt nice but i dont think it did anything else 4 me besides that.
however, my mom said she accidentally threw it away when she was cleaning my room & i havent bought any more since it didnt really do anything 4 me but id like 2 try another kind

my forehead & nose get really oily during the day & im sure a weekly mask couldnt hurt so i looked around & found this place called & they hav 2 masks that i really like; fullers earth clay & their french green clay
i like the french more but i was wondering if anyone has ever tried clay/mud masks & been very pleased w/ them?
i want something to just suck this oil out for once

I've use several masks before including French clay (at least I think so, it's hard to keep them all straight), but they haven't really worked for me. My sister has had them help, but I really didn't notice any difference. Hopefully, they will work for you. :-)

I've found that peel-off masks work better than the wipe-off masks (like queen helene). I've had better results from peel-off masks, and they make my skin feel cleaner and smoother than the other kind.

For oil try a milk of magnesia mask. Just buy some plain milk of magnesia and put it on the oily areas w/ a cotton ball, it hardens and becomes a "mask". My sister did this once as an experiment and didnt have any oil for a few days.

Cool; i've heard about a milk of magnesia mask before too.. I'm not sure if I have any lying around but I'll check.

So what's a peel-off mask? I've never heard of them before xcept for that one neutrogena peel-off mask commercial.

Sorry they haven't really helped you, I know the feeling very well

QH's mint mask really resembles french green clay, not just that it's bright green as french clay should be but how it looks & probably feels.
I've thought about using a mud mask rather than clay but apparently the french clay really sucks up the oil & that's really what I need but if I have some milk of magnesia I'll try that first.
later : )
