OBSESSED!!!

By 

from Seattle

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I have oily combination skin and acne prone.... super sensitive as well. This mask is heaven sent!!! It's definitely a very strong mask so I can only do it 1-2 a week.
My skin looks so good after and feels super clean after a long day of work and makeup sliding off my face.
I follow with a toner and night time moisturizer.
My skin looks better after and make up goes on great!!

Beware if you have dark skin!

By 

from New York

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I have African skin that is acne prone and susceptible to post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. I am in no way sensitive but not only did this mask burn my face, it left dark scaly patches everywhere I had applied it! I love dermalogica products but this one is a big no no for those with darker skin tones. I fear I may be wearing makeup for months to try and cover it up until I can go bare faced again ☹️

It's like being in St Lucia!

By 

from NYC

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

Was on vacation in St. Lucia when we took a tour to the Soufriere volcano to take a mud bath. Thats when I found out how about the benefits of charcoal and sulfur and how great it is for your skin. When I came across the charcoal rescue masque I had to buy it and try it. It's great yes it does make your skin a bit red which goes away within an hour but it leaves your face feeling clean and fresh it's also great for acne prone skin.

One of my top 2 masks EVER

By 

from Charlotte, NC

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I have sensitive skin that's oily and acne prone. I'm even allergic to benzoyl peroxide acne ingredients.... so I couldn't use the acne line for dermalogica. But this mask helps with my scars/ discoloration as well. Love it! Doesn't irritate my face surprisingly because my skin is super sensitive

Great mask for acne, oily and congested skin

By 

from Boston, MA

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I have normal/combination skin, blackheads and occasional cystic acne. I use this product as needed, maybe once every two weeks when I'm feeling extra congested, oily, or have spots of acne.
It immediately clears and shrinks my pores, exfoliates and evens my skin texture. I use it at night because it does make my skin look red. But, when I follow it with the ultra calming mist, and a combination of the skin hydrating booster with a heavy moisturizer like power rich, I wake up with perfect, smooth and glowing skin. I do this because skin soaks up the most moisture at night. During the day I use a lighter moisturizer like active moist or skin smoothing.

Do not use this product if you have dry or sensitive skin with no acne.
It does slightly smell like sulfur, but it doesn't bother me.
I would highly recommend for somebody with combination skin, dry spots, sun spots, acne and to combat oil.

This Mask Burns!!

By 

from New York, NY

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I received this mask as a sample and was eager to test it out. I followed the directions, yet the mask left my face red, hot, and inflamed. I was happy to see that others had a similar reaction to the mask and that I was not breaking out from a specific ingredient. If a mask leaves skin red and inflamed it has crossed the point of exfoliant and is downright dangerous.

      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.

    this product gave me rashes, extreme feeling of burning and redness like sun burn. will it go away soon? I read reviews there are other people with same reaction. is this expected? normal? what should I do? I am applying ice on my face!
    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.

    • A:

      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.
