Acne Control Clarifying Mask absorbs pore clogging dirt and oil as it draws out impurities. Its natural, clay-based formula reduces irritation and oil while Sulfur decreases acne's severity as it helps skin to clear. Zinc oxide and licorice root extract work together to soothe, comfort, and calm skin. Kaolin clay absorbs excess oil and diminishes shine.

Acne Clarifying Mask is recommended as a weekly Step 2 treatment to help relieve both redness and breakouts as part of Dr. Murad's inclusive health system of care.

Dermatologist developed. Tested on people, not animals. Formulated without sulfates and phthalates.
Apply an even layer over clean skin. Leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and pat dry. Follow with a Murad Step 3 moisturizer.

    Comments about Murad Acne Control Clarifying Mask:

    The lady who does my regular facials recommended this product. I have been satisfied with the other Murad products so I tried this...but it just doesn't work for my hormonal acne. It dries out my skin, but doesn't prevent breakouts or help with current breakouts. Probably won't be buying this again.

    Comments about Murad Acne Control Clarifying Mask:

    I use this mask every couple of days, and it works very well. It's not too drying, and it helps with acne and oil control. Sometimes, I also use it as an overnight spot treatment, and I find it greatly reduces redness. I have sensitive skin, but this is gentle enough for using a couple of times a week. Can't go without it now that it's in my routine—it's a staple!

      Comments about Murad Acne Control Clarifying Mask:

      I've had a really bad breakout that's lasted for over a month - caused by a mix of stress, acne, and diet - around my mouth and along my jawline. I started using this as an overnight spot treatment, probably 4-5 nights in a row, and it's basically healed now. I initially tried it as a 10-minute mask, but it's much more effective as a spot treatment. It's kind of annoying to take off, but it's worth it because it really works. Sometimes it'll pull up more acne when you try it the first night, but stick with it for a couple days and you'll see how well it works.

          This mask has not improved my acne or skin tone. I've been using it for 4 months now and I'm not seeing results. The mask did make my skin soft but only for a day. It leaves a white residue even after you rinse it off. Annoying!

          Hey there! I'm female, 23, never had acne till this winter, mix skin type. So I just bought this 3 days ago and have used it twice, and my skin is definitely feeling the effects. It's pulling up all my little bumps that where just sitting under the skin, turning them into pimples/whiteheads. It sucks but it's all part of the process! I'll update later!

          my favorite mask

          By halgham2

          from VA

          Comments about Murad Acne Control Clarifying Mask:

          I've never seen such results with any other facial mask like this one by Murad. I tried it once from my sister when we had a beauty night, and I was amazed by the result from the first use. My skin is sensitive, combination type, and clear, but sometimes have breakout due to stress, diet changing, or during that time of month. This mask, from only one use, I saw how my skin looked fresh, bright, clean, and so soft like I had a deep facial and all the dry area in my face was so smooth especially my forehead. I used it twice a week for the first week and it helped my breakouts to dry fast and fall on its own. So I decided to purchase it, and I am so happy I did. I used it twice a month now, but if I have any event I use it twice a week before the week of the occasion to prepare my skin. It really cleanse the skin like a pro. The amount you need is small to spread in your face as directed "thin layer" , so the product will last long with you before you run out.

              A:

              Clarifying Mask works best if left on for up to 10 minutes. Leaving it on overnight doesn't make it more effective if anything you could wake up with it all over your pillow.

              A:

              This is a very thick product due to the kaolin clay that helps to adsorb oil. It is best to apply a small amount at a time. Starting in one area of the face and applying an even layer before moving on to next area of the face,
