Glad I gave it a second chance

By 

from Ontario

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I'm dry, have sun spots and am pretty sensitive (Rosacea on the chin). I also have bumps under the surface that look bad when I have makeup on.

The first time I used this product, I didn't like it. I felt dry and it flared up my chin.

I gave it another chance. This time, I avoided my chin and only left it on 10 minutes. It's honestly the only thing that got rid of the bumpy texture of my skin. It smoothed it out.

I think I'm too sensitive to use it up to 4 times a week like the directions say. But if I use it once a week, or once every other week then I'm good. Now, I just avoid the chin an focus on where I breakout.

It also brightened up some of my freckles, a little.

No I would not buy this again

By 

from London, United Kingdom

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

First of all, I love this brand and I use their product for over a year now and I even buy backups of some products, I use cleanser, tonic and moisturiser. I was looking for a masque like this to detoxify my T zone as I have a combination skin. So I was really excited to try this product! When I put it on for the first time it was very cooling and not at all uncomfortable, but when I washed it off (after 10mins) with warm water by very gently rubbing and removing it off, I saw that the areas that I applied was all red at first I thought I burnt those areas somehow!!! It has been an hour now and the redness is still there. I used many masques before and have never experienced this... my skin is not at all sensitive... I feel disappointed about this product only. However, all the products that I used before (especially clear start series) are awesome.

Not great for sensitive skin

By 

from Vancouver

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I was given this mask in a rescue kit and I was really excited about it. I have been using charcoal masques by other brands and have not had any issues. This masque felt fine when I put it on, I only let it on for a few minutes because I am weary about new products and I am so glad I removed it when I did. As soon as I washed it off I could feel my skin burning. I had to put cold compresses on my face and consistently douse my face in cold water for the rest of the day in order to get any relief. I took more than 24 hours for the redness to go away.

Be careful if you have even mildly sensitive skin

By 

from Sydney

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

With charcoal being very popular right now, I was keen to give this a try. It felt fine when it was on, but once rinsed away, it was clear it was no good for my skin type. Exceptionally red and hot skin for hours afterwards. It was very obvious where the mask had been applied. I have never had a reaction to any Dermalogica product before. Strongly suggest testing a small area before applying to the entire face. My skin certainly felt clean and smooth after using, but not worth the pain!

Bad skin reaction

By 

from Ireland

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I had a really bad reaction to this product. I have been using dermalogica for years and thought that this would be a good masque but when I washed it off, my skin was blotchy and red and wore as hell.

Skin felt sun burnt after use.

By 

from UK

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

Used this as it was given to me as a sample when purchasing other products. It felt amazing on my skin when I first applied and after a few minutes my face began to tingle, I washed off with warm water. I left it for about an hour before using anything else, later on I used toner and moisturiser I bought and my face felt as if it was sun burnt. Really good product for cleaning the skin out but just too harsh on my skin.

Can see it working!

By 

from Sydney Australia

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

The best mask to clear congestion and blackheads. I could actually see the gunk in my skin being pushed to the surface in the form of little white dots that came away once the mask was removed. Could see this process very clearly under a magnified mirror. An amazing and effective product! I have used countless other masks in an attempt to clear my skin, but nothing was as effective and as gentle as this mask. Did not have any irritation or redness and who cares if it smells as long as it is a natural smell and not artificial perfume. Use it, it does what it says.

Red rash

By 

from Plymouth Devon U.K.

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I received this as part of a free gift and was really looking forward to using it, after cleansing my skin I applied the mask and left for 8 mins, after washing the mask off ,my face was covered in a red bumpy rash with a spot under my eye, so disappointed as I love dermalogica and have never had any negative reactions to the products before. I use dermal clay cleanser daily and swear by active moist so pretty gutted

Burning masque - patch test

By 

from Qld, Australia

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I received 2 samples of this product from my beauty therapist. Loved it the first time. Second time (after several weeks) my skin has come up bright red and spotty and it is burning. There was no pain while it was on and I followed the instructions. Very disappointed in this product.

Would not use again

By 

from Sydney

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I received a sample of this mask along with some other Dermatological products I purchased and I applied the mask. At first it felt great, goes on well and smells earthy. I washed it off after 7 minutes and my face was bright red. I could see exactly where the mask had been applied as my skin was stinging and was bright red. I don't have sensitive skin and never normally react to anything but this definitely gave my skin a reaction.

      Dear Brittany,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Please note that Charcoal Rescue Masque is an exfoliating masque that is not for sensitive skin. Please do not exfoliate prior to using the masque and remove with water for the best results. It will brighten and detox the pores.

      Dear Ade,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. If you are sensitive, please do not use them in the same day. If you have a lot of acne, it is ok to use one in the morning and one at night.

    Asked on 10/9/2016 by Rhonda from Boston

    1 answer

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      Dear Rhonda,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Charcoal Rescue Masque is an exfoliating face masque. Please do not use it immediately after exfoliating. Too much exfoliation can sensitize your skin. To be honest, the first time I used the product, I felt sensitized. Then, my skin eventually acclimated to it. It's one of my favorite ways to treat under surface congestion.

      The masque can be used up to 4 times per week. However, if you are sensitive to the exfoliants in the masque, once every other week may suffice. If you try to use it again, you can do a patch test in an inconspicuous area to make sure you will not react negatively to it.

      Finally, if you are completely unhappy, you are welcome to return the product where it was purchased. All of our authorized vendors are backed up with our 30 day satisfaction garauntee.

      Kind Regards,
      The Dermalogica Team

  • Q:

    Exfoliate before use?: Should I exfoliate at all before using this mask, or would that be too much? I've read that exfoliating before some masks makes them more effective, but I don't want to put my skin through too much before using this.

      Dear ClareD,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Please apply a medium-thick layer to dry skin. If it is not spreading easily, you need a thicker layer of the masque.

      I use it on freshly washed skin, barely patted with a towel so still fairly damp, and before using the toner spray. It smoothes on pretty well that way for me.

      Answered on 7/25/2016 by Anuska from Blackpool, UK
    • A:

      To be honest no. It is better on breakouts. For blackheads i would go for gentle exfoliant . It would prevent poors from being blocked with sebum, and thus sebum being oxydised which is essentially what a blackhead is.

      Answered on 6/17/2016 by Yulia24 from Russia
    • A:

      Hello,

      Thank you for your question. A professional Skin Treatment is the best way to remove blackheads. That being said, this masque can keep them away, and prevent them. You may use it 1-3 times per week as your exfoliation and masque step.
