I have been a long time user of the "shine control" version of this product. It is similar in that you can use it as a mask and/or cleanser. It was great for cleaning my oily skin without irritating it or drying it out. Had to buy this newer version because I was having a hard time finding the other one at stores or online. I thought it would work out great for me but....boy was I wrong..had a big allergic reaction to it...rash, hives, splotchiness, scaling skin, nausea... all at the same time and all within a week of using the product. I've never had this kind of reaction to a skin care product so I have no idea what they have put in the new formula. Read the label carefully and I would advise that you do a patch test on your arm before using it on your face. Did you discontinue the older product? Can't find it anywhere and I live in a big city with lots of shopping options. Hoping that you will continue to make it. I'm sure plenty of other users will have similar issues with the newer product.
