Not so happy

By 

from London

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I had bought this as I saw all my friends having this product but not from this brand and it seemed to work wonders on them, I tried it out from here but unfortunately it left me with redness and it stung for a little while, I didn't leave it on for longer than it had said.
Don't get me wrong dermalogica does amazing products but for me this one didn't do so great for me!

The BEST masque ever

By 

from Toronto

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I absolutely love this masque!! Of all the amazing Dermalogica products this masque is by far the best.

It's not for evety type of skin. My skin is NOT sensitive. Still I HAVE to use a timer for this masque - exactly 7 min or even less. And only in the nighttime.
The face will be red as a tomato for a bit (up to one hour I'd say), then it will calm. After rinsing the skin will literally drink the moisturizer (I would put a bit more of moisturizer than usual).
Next morning you will look 10 years younger.

Loved it

By 

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I got this as a sample with the daily microfoliant and the active moist. I cleansed my face with the microfoliant first, then used this mask for about 15 min, then washed it off in the shower using just the Aveeno brightening cleanser, then I put the active moist on when I got out. My face had never looked better after that. I have never seen it look so bright. My family even commented on it with out knowing that I did all of that. I really recommend

Do not buy

By 

from Leeds

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

Purchased this product after trying a tester bottle. However my face is currently bright red, inflamed and burning. I washed the masque straight off my face after i felt the burning sensation. Very disappointed as I have used dermalogica products for years without a reaction.

This is POTENT

By 

from Maine

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

So, I didn't have a great experience with this masque BUT I wanted to review it because I feel there are a few things to be aware of:
-This is not for dry or sensitive skin.
-Burning and redness may/will occur but it is temporary.
-There's a lady responding to these reviews from dermalogica telling people to use it at night and I agree with that advice 100%.
-If you have oily skin that needs purging, this will be your go-to.

I personally have combination skin and this is just too much for my dry parts, but it was phenomenal on my T-zone. I will avoid those areas in the future. Lastly, the sulfur smell is present.

Great potent product

By 

from Edinburgh, UK

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

This product is significantly stronger than the medbac masque I also use, but more effective in my opinion. It leaves my skin soft and fresh. I have to see the longer term impact on my skins, but so far it seems worth the money. The masque dries and hardens after some minutes, and you physically feel it pulling on the skin which is kind of nice.

Must-have product

By 

from Birmingham, UK

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

Genuinely don't think I could live without this as part of my skincare regimen from now on. I use it in the bath and when I'm done, splash a small amount of water on to my face and rub it into my skin for a couple of minutes as it also doubles as an exfoliator. My skin feels squeaky cleeeean and looks delightfully plump and pink when I leave the bathroom :) I follow with a generous application of UltraCalming serum and a good night's sleep and honestly I'm convinced I wake up with brand new skin. I've never written a review in my life but I'm so impressed by this- ladies: providing you don't have overly sensitive skin, buy buy buy! I have oily/ combination and this really clears my spots up. I use it once or twice a week, especially great the day after a night out drinking! I can't recommend enough.

Burnt face/horrible side effects

By 

from New york

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I applied the mask and felt the burning sensation and as I removed it, my whole face was burnt red. It feels horrible. I read the reviews on the other site and there are so many women that experienced same side effects. Please be cautious, I wouldn't buy it. I hate them for ruining it for me.

Lives up to the hype

By 

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I was interested in this charcoal masque trend that I see everyone talking and posting videos about. I wanted to start with my most trusted brand of course, since I was pretty wary. I have to say I was really impressed with this masque! It totally lived up to the hype of the charcoal masque trend. However, be sure to not leave it on longer than what they recommend. I set my timer wrong and when I took it off my skin was a bit red and sensitive - totally my fault though! After a few hours it was fine. Also, make sure to plan and do this masque when you are not going to go out in the sun all day.

      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.

      A:

      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.

    Do you apply to wet, damp or dry skin?: I have used this mask once and applied it to my freshly washed skin which I patted dry with a towel. However it was slightly difficult to spread and therefore I wish to seek some clarity please.

      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.

    • 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.

      Kind Regards,

      Answered on 12/18/2015 by DermalogicaSkinTherapist from Los Angeles
    • 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.
