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.

    I recommend this product for those who battle oily t-zones. I am sensitive and dry cheeks but this helps with my oily nose. You must repeat a minimum of twice a week to benefit from this product.

    So far so good :) I've only used this twice and I can already see and feel the difference. I only get hormonal acne on my chin but recently have been getting tiny skin colored bumps all over my face. I'm hoping this will clear out my clogged pores.

                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.

                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!

                    • 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.

                        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!
