Ask a Question
Mattifying mask absorbs oil, impurities and environmental pollutants to help detoxify skin. Charcoal powder draws out deep-seated debris to purify pores, while mineral clays soak up excess oil. Skin feels fresh, smooth; pores look noticeably refined. Oil-free. For dry combination to oily skin types.
Apply a thin even layer to clean dry skin, avoiding eye area. Leave mask on skin about 10 minutes, or until dry and rinse well. Use 1-2 times a week or as needed.

      Do not use this if you have sensitive acne prone skin it will just dry you out and leave your skin looking irritated and will not clear up your skin.

      Comments about Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Charcoal Mask:

      I was looking for a mask to minimize pores. I didn't like what I was seeing of my face with a filter on vs not ;)

      it dries rather quickly and feels nice and tight. i've only used it twice, but i do like it. my skin feels very plump and moisturized after using.

      try it at night to make sure all the black/gray color comes off :) worth a try!

          Comments about Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Charcoal Mask:

          I paired this product with my acne cleansing mask and they work nicely together. This mask is a little thinner than I expected, so you need to use a little more to cover areas. It worked nicely though.

            Use once a week and have a small amount of black heads on the nose. Have used this product for a month and have not noticed any improvement in my skin. I have done much research and it appears this product is one of the best for ingredients. May not purchase again

              It's only been a week and I only use a mask two or three times a week. Looking good so far . I am 36. I've always had combination skin with acne. I don't have lots of money to spend on me but I'm getting older so I splurged. I'm doing the 3 sets and this .. I'M HAPPY!

              • Q:

                Why is propylene glycol used in this product? After decades of skin sensitivity I have found that this is the culprit and I avoid anything with this ingredient (and it is everywhere!). I gravitated to Clinique for its attention to non-allergenic ingredients.

                Is this the kind of mask that you peel off and your blackheads are shown on the mask once you peel it off??

                  Hi. You do not peel this specific mask. This mask uses charcoal to draw out impurities from the pores. After you apply the mask, you should let the mask harden on the skin, and rinse off with warm water. Thank you for your question and your interest in Clinique!
