Niacinamide helps reduce congestion and calm the skin while Chilean Wild Mint helps refine pores.

Amazing!

By 

from Clarks Summit PA

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I have more dry, and aging skin. I apply this after an oil or gel cleanse. I onlky leave to dry for three mins . After it is just about dry, i wet both hands with warm water and gently rub. I then remove with a warm flannel. Moisturize, and VOILA! Beautiful, bright, smooth skin in minutes!

Good product but a little messy

By 

from Florida

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

This is good product for clearing and brightening the skin but it is also very messy. It is quite difficult to remove it from the face and I have ruined a few face cloths (stained them black) in the process. If you are looking for a product that makes your skin look and feel amazing and don't mind the mess and effort then I would recommend.

First time use

By 

from Stockton, CA

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

First time using the Charcoal Rescue Masque, it showed promising results. It did burn in the beginning but, after awhile it calmed down. I could feel the product drying and my skin pulsating. After leaving it on for the required time, I massaged and rinsed it off. It left my forehead and nose very shiny; my skin did dry out afterwards but, I followed it up with a hydrating oxygen mask to restore moisture along with a moisturizer. I will continue the use to see how well it brightens and closes the pores. One thing the box forgot to mention is if the product could be applied everyday. I know the website mentions to use as needed. All in all it's a go.

Emergency Blemish Zapper

By 

from Chicago , IL

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

Even though I'm in my 60's and fighting aging I still have issues with acne. After reading reviews I decided to try and was shocked how fast it clears out blemishes. I saw a review that someone was using only on spots to make them heal and it really does. I followed the directions of only using for 10 minutes and it worked. The next day the blemish size was greatly reduced and less red . I did not notice any scent that others complained about. I also use the ulta-calming mist to reduce redness

Great product - that actually works!

By 

from Canada

Comments about charcoal rescue masque:

I have sensitive skin along with rosacea. I've tried so many different products from different skin care lines. Dermalogica works really well with my skin but I wanted to up my skin care game as I'm not getting any younger :). The first time I used this masque, my skin turned red and I had little red bumps on my cheeks - but no irritation or burning. In reading some of these reviews, many said to give it some time and try again. I gave it a go for a second time and there was less redness but still red/white bumps but that cleared up. I just used different it a third time and my skin reacted beautifully. I think that the redness and bumps mean the product is actually working as it promotes cell turnover. So, I would say keep using it unless your skin burns!

It's a little gummy to the touch. But, it does a good job of calming and smoothing the skin.

    My tube says to leave on for 7-10 minutes. Why are the directions different now? Will leaving it on for longer than 5 minutes damage my skin?

  • Q:

    How long do you keep masque on before lightly massaging?

    Your website states after 3 to 5 minutes.

    The 40ml (1.3 US FL OZ) tube I have states 7 to 10 minutes.

    Clarification is appreciated....thank you.

    Hi,
    I applied the facial mask with my finger tips and am very pleased with the results.
    I washed my hands and left the mask on for 10 min before washing off.
    My face is clear but my finger tips are stained black and dry.
    I can't manage to remove the stain.
    What should I do?

      Hello Ann,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. Charcoal Rescue Masque is an exfoliating masque. When using retinol, please do not use exfoliants as they will sensitize the skin.

  • Q:

    Is the charcoal rescue masque meant to remove impurites and exfoliate all in one product. I'm alittle confused by what "all in one" means. I use the the gentle cream exfoliant followed by the skin refining mask. Is this a substitue for that since its "all in one". I have purchased it and am not sure how to use it in my current routine.
    Also, you might want to consider changing your product description. It's confusing and it appears many are having questions about to use it with their existing regimen.

      Hello,

      Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. You can use this masque 1-4 times per week, after cleansing and before toner. If you are more sensitive, once a week is perfect. Please do not use it with any other exfoliants. I personally prefer to use it at night.

  • Q:

    Hi,i am a dermalogica user of several products for many years and the charcoal rescue masque was given as a sample size by my dermalogica store at LA. I have used it after cleaning my face and left for 7-8 minutes and then massaging with wet hands washed it. My face was red after washing, after 15-20 minutes it was much better then I put my moisturizer. Today it is ok but I just feel a bit hot. I didn't know the exfoliant effect before I use it. As I am blonde and have a sensitive skin which can be red very easily, I would like to ask if there is any warning for sun after using this masque, due to its exfoliant effect. I am wearing a suncare cream but I just wanted to be make sure as I will go on a holiday now. I am a bit concerned now after reading the negative comments with the redness effect. And I have one more question,as we apply this to clean face, there is no need to use a cleanser after, isn't it? Thanks

      Hello,

      Thank you for your feedback and interest in Dermalogica. It is typical for Charcoal Rescue Masque to flush the skin of certain individuals. For instance, my husband and I use the same bottle of Charcoal Rescue Masque, and his skin becomes red and mine does not. The flushing should not cause any discomfort.

      Charcoal Rescue Masque is an exfoliating masque, so be sure to not exfoliate on the same day as using it. It detoxes the skin, and is not for sensitive skin. You can use SPF daily, especially after exfoliating.

      Finally, you can apply Charcoal Rescue Masque to clean skin, after cleansing.
