Don't use this product!!

By 

from Lincolnshire, England

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I've been receiving acne treatment for around 6 months now and have never had a bad reaction to any other treatment. My dermatologist gave me a sample of the charcoal rescue masque and after using it for no longer than the packet told me to, my skin is sore and looks sunburnt. The first thing I'd like to say is that the sample packet says you should leave the mask on for 7 to 10 minutes so you might want to fix that, secondly all your responses to reviews say that the mask is for oily acne prone skin which isn't sensitive. My skin IS oily and acne prone and as I've said I've never been sensitive to any other treatments. Now I just have to hope my skin recovers before my sixth form ball in 5 days.

In love with this product

By 

from Brea, CA

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I am 59. I have a good skin except my pores. I had been using Lancôme for the hope of shrinking my pores. Nothing happened. My cousin recommended me this detox charcoal product. Amazing that one time, one time only and I can see my pores shrunk like a magic. also my face muscles are tighten nice. Love it.
If your skin is sensitive, you should use less minute to allow your skin get use to the products.

It's awesome! Definitely will purchase it again...

By 

from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I love this mask (Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque) so much. The mask is easy to apply. However it does have an almost ocean smell that doesn't really fit in with the charcoal. It's not a strong scent and easy to get past. It worked wonders for my concern areas and I was super pleased to find out my sensitive skin didn't have a bad reaction. I felt tight on my face, applying moisturizer fixed this. My skin looked refined and purified and the red patch on my face was majorly diminished though after using this.

Perfect for my dry, sensitive, extremely picky skin

By 

from Washington, DC

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I don't understand the bad reviews for this masque. I really think the people complaining about this doing terrible things to their face are just over-exfoliating their skin. I have the most sensitive, picky, acne prone skin that tends to be dry most of the year. This masque makes my face so soft, smooth and glowy, makes my huge pores less visible and has helped with breakouts and acne scars. Because my skin is so sensitive I only use this once a week. I use it BEFORE I wash my face so I can make sure I get off any leftover residue. I apply a generous layer, leave on for 10 minutes, wipe off with a hot wet washcloth and follow up with a good rinse with warm water. I then pat dry and begin to wash my face with Dermalogica's UltraCalming Cleanser (if you have sensitive skin you definitely shouldn't use a harsh cleanser or exfoliating wash when you use this masque) Then I apply a nice heavy moisturizer and that's it! I wake up in the morning with bright, glowing, softer than a baby's butt skin. Excellent ingredients, love the simple packaging, amazing stuff. Will definitely repurchase. Oh and the only con I have is that it's pretty stinky lol but it's worth it. Pleaseeeee please don't ever change the formula

Results after first use

By 

from Sydney, Aus

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

At first I thought the whole Charcoal buzz was just another fad. However, after using this product I am impressed! after one use I could feel and see the results from this masque. My congested skin felt and looked clean and more youthful. I use this once a week and am loving it! I would highly recommend this for anyone with a lot of congestion. My skin is combination.

Great Face Masque

By 

from Seatte, WA

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I have been using the charcoal face masque once a week in the evenings for about 8 months. When I use this regularly my skin looks and feels so much better. I do turn red after I wash it off, but this disappears quickly and by the next morning there is no redness. I have sensitive skin that gets rough/flaky patches and using this product regularly really helps to reduce that and makes my skin overall look so much better. When I miss a week of using this product, I can really tell. I wouldn't suggest using more than 1x week and the days I exfoliate I do not use this masque.

Redness

By 

from Malta

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

Like many other readers I too was left with a very red, sunburnt-looking face! I don't consider my skin to be sensitive, as have in fact never had this issue with any products. I would definitely proceed with caution before applying this to your face.

Never buy this

By 

from Toowoomba

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I have been using Dermalogica products for over 10 years and never had a problem before. I received a sample of the charcoal rescue masque when buying my usual products, no warning or asking about my skin type. I applied as per the directions and times for 7 minutes- felt some tightening of the skin and rinsed off with warm water - OMG my face was burning and looked like I was a lobster. It settled down after 24 hrs, but still felt hot every time I cleansed for a few days. 4 days later I noticed a red rash appearing and now my face is covered in blemishes all bright red & raised. The salon where I got it tells me this is not a reaction but all normal!! I am in my late 50's and have never had a pimple for over 40 years, I have been given some free samples to try to calm the skin, but I will never use or recommend the charcoal rescue masque

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I started using Dermalogica products when I received them as a gift from a friend. The charcoal rescue masque works wonders. Not only does it help tighten pores, but it also leaves skin look radiant and smooth.

      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,

    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.

      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.

      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.
