charcoal rescue masque

Fast-acting, easy-to-remove masque rescues tired, lackluster or dull skin. Activated Binchotan Charcoal powerfully adsorbs impurities while Sulfur promotes cell turnover for dramatically brighter skin. Volcanic Ash, Sea Silt, Bamboo Extract and alpha hydroxy acids further accelerate skin brightening with dual-action exfoliation. Niacinamide helps reduce congestion and calm the skin while Chilean Wild Mint helps refine pores. Formulated without artificial fragrances, colors or parabens.

  • Provides physical and chemical exfoliation for visibly revitalized skin.
  • Addresses signs of skin aging, breakouts and sensitivity all at once.

how to use

After cleansing, apply generously to face and throat, avoiding the eye area. After 7 to 10 minutes, lightly massage with very wet hands to enhance exfoliation properties during removal. Rinse thoroughly.

Not Recommended

By 

from Loudon, TN

Got a sample from beauty store. I had burning and redness for several days. I would be afraid to ever try it again.

Burning sensation

By 

from Malta

My beautician recommended me to buy the charcoal rescue masque as she thought it would be quite helpful for my sensitive to oily skin. It was my first time of using such product. When I first applied it, it felt okay, however 3 minutes in I felt a burning sensation, but it subsided. On removing the mask, my face was completely red, felt smooth but was super dry.

Breakouts after each use

By 

from Australia

After using the Gentle Cream Exfoliant for years and swearing by Dermalogica, I decided to go crazy and branch out with a new mask. Most of the reviews are so positive, but in my experience, every time I've used this mask, without fail, I've broken out, even in places I've never had acne, like my cheeks. Not a hot look when you're in your 30s! I have combo skin that can lean on the dry side. No clue why this product clashes with my skin, but it's a bummer.

Not happy.

By 

from UK

This product is the worst I have ever used. I have no allergies to my knowledge and this product has caused mass redness, irritation and dryness. I've read many other reviews on this product and to no surprise there are many others complaining of similar and worse symptoms. What I am shocked about is how this product is still available when it is clearly harmful. This product needs major improvements ASAP. I am disgusted in the lack of urgency to attempt to solve this issue.

Never again

By 

from Darwin, Australia

For the first time in my life I have had a reaction to a product, my face is red raw and emanating heat after one hour of removal and is sensitive to touch. Received the masque as a trial sachet and would never buy a big one. Good news is it's taken a whole lawyer of skin off my face so my face is now smooth, bad news is that if it's still like this when I wake up, I'll have to go see a doctor.

Unsure

By 

from Middlesbrough

First time I used this it made my skin feel amazing, 2nd time I looked like I had been burnt really bad on my cheeks, my skin went very red. Could someone advise if this is normal, it also does not say how often it should be used which is really bad! I used it first on Tuesday then the next time it went red I used it on a Friday? Could someone contact me possibly regarding this.

Skin feels tighter but red raw after using this product

By 

from Melbourne VIC

First time i used a sample of this product it seemed great but the last cpl of times I've used it, my face has been left looking burnt and it takes a day or so to go down.
I use dermalogica everyday and my skin is usually clear, as long as i stick to the same products but i seem to have a reaction to this one :(

So in love with this!! CLEARED MY ACNE!!

By 

from Portland, OR

I have used my fair share of facial masks and this one is by far the best. I have used kaolin masks, bentonite masks, sulfur mask, etc. The greatest part about this mask is that it has all these beneficial ingredients in ONE mask. Every ingredient in this mask is amazing on its own, so it's really such a deal to get all of them in one. I pair this with the multi-active toner and I have seen amazing results. The breakouts that I had are diminishing, and I have not seen any new ones. It also really helped with the scarring I had! This product is an all in one oily skin/ acne prone skin defense. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND TRYING THIS.

  • 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.

  • Q:

    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.

      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.

    will this masque help to remove blackheads?

      Yes and other congestion too, it worked 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.
