[Product Review] Proactiv Refining Mask

Hey people,
I am here with a long time pending review. It was in drafts since so long but then, I came up finally with the review of this. I used it a month back when my skin broke out like crazy. So here is my review on the same. I guess, this is one such a product where the section "My experience" is highly looked for :)
About Proactiv:
Spot treating blemishes after they break out is too late-a frustrating, losing battle that does nothing for prevention. In contrast, Proactiv is different because it is designed to fight existing pimples and control future breakouts before they even surface on your skin. Proactiv treats the whole face-and neck, chest, shoulders and back as needed-in a way that helps to prevent breakouts before they even get started. Also, it's formulated with soothing botanicals like allantoin, panthenol, aloe and chamomile that leave your skin feeling smooth, healthy and hydrated.

How Proactiv Works:
The acne cycle starts invisibly, below the skin's surface, weeks before a blemish breaks out. That's why Proactiv is designed to attack acne "proactively"-delivering the right combination of medicines and skin-care agents, in the right order and concentrations, to help control the acne cycle before breakouts occur. If you have acne, Proactiv is the key to a clear complexion.
About the Proactiv Refining Mask: source
A good cleansing milk and moisturizer can keep your skin clean and well-hydrated. But sometimes the skin needs something extra, a bit of pampering occasionally. Moreover, if you happen to have a sensitive and pimple-prone skin, then it gets even more important for you to take special care of your skin.
Proactiv Refining Mask provides pampering that an oily, pimple-prone and sensitive skin needs. The facial mask acts as an acne treatment skin care product as it contains elements such as sulphur that effectively fights acne causing bacteria. The active ingredient in it absorbs excess oil, reduces the appearance of pore size, pacifies redness and improves the skin texture. It also works well on stubborn blackheads and whiteheads. Regular application of this facial mask will give your skin a smooth and radiant effect.
How to use:
For best results, use it after Proactiv Renewing Cleanser and apply the Revitalizing Toner and moisturizer after washing-off the Proactiv Refining Mask. You can also make use of this mask as an over-night pimples treatment.

Proactiv Refining Mask Review
My Experience with the product:
The texture of the mask is very thick and I felt it has some clay which would make it stick to the skin as a mask and dry quick too. It smells medicinal but not too overpowering. I have used it for a month along with the cleanser and the toner. I have used it twice/thrice a week depending upon my mood.
I have used it as a spot treatment and as a face mask.
When I used it as a face mask, I have kept it on for 15mins and then washed it away. But as a spot treatment, I made sure that I kept it for the whole night.
Proactiv Refining Mask Review
My Observations:
1. When used as a spot treatment, the pimple which already aroused or in the making, reduced to half the size and turned less painful by morning. The pimple completely vanished without breaking out and leaving a mark in 2 days.
2. When used as a spot treatment on white heads/black heads it didn't show any visible change.
3. But the pack worked real effective on white heads when I applied it as a mask. Though it would take some 5-6 times of the application of the mask, it made my skin clear and blemish free in 2 weeks.
