Charcoal Rescue Masque by Dermalogica is an all-in-one treatment mask that instantly detoxifies troubled skin. Activated binchotan charcoal powerfully adsorbs impurities while 5% 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.

We recommend that first-time Dermalogica users visit an authorized skin treatment professional for a client consultation in an ULTA store.

After cleansing, apply generously to face and throat, avoiding the eye area. You may experience slight tingling. After 3 to 5 minutes, lightly massage with very wet hands to enhance exfoliation properties during removal. Rinse thoroughly. Follow with prescribed Dermalogica moisturizer.

    Got a one time sample of this with another dermalogicia purchase. I felt it worked really well, helped brighten skin, reduced redness, gave skin a healthy glow. Can't wait to re-buy.

    Ulta sent a sample

    By Natalie

    from Florida

    Comments about Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque:

    A sample of this masque was sent in an Ulta skin pack I received with my order.
    I just used this today so I'm going to update this review later as well.
    Within minutes of applying I felt a slight burning that progressively became worse. It really feels like it's working because it really tightens and has a suction feeling.
    My skin is not typically sensitive at all and this product was painful to remove with a washcloth. I removed it hours ago and my face is bright red. It does feel softer and the pain is gone but the puffiness and red is still present.

        I received a sample pack of face mask and this product was included.
        I applied a thin layer to my face. Started feeling tingly, but like most mask I figured it was normal. So I washed my face within 5 minutes and my face was red and burnt. I got a chemical burn :(
        Definitely not the right mask for me and my skin is not that sensitive.

        I have very acne prone skin and I love this product! I use it with the skin clearing wash, the toner, and skin smoothing lotion. It's a great boost to clear skin! Exfoliating and gentle, does not dry out too much if only used twice a week which is all I need. It does have a sulfur smell, but it's a charcoal mask so it was expected!

        Comments about Dermalogica Charcoal Rescue Masque:

        My facialist used this on me. I could really feel it working. I love the Superfoliant, so I thought a charcoal based mask would be good on me. I do have sensitive skin. It did not leave me with a red face, however, my skin grew increasingly irritated by the end of the day, plus I had a rosacea flare up with those icky pimples. My skin continued to feel irritated for 3 days until I found samples of ultra calming relief masque and barrier repair. Those helped so much!! I'm on Ulta right now to see if I can find those 2 products. This would probably work fine for someone with less sensitive and younger skin. Rosacea contributes to clogged pores for me, so that is why I was interested in trying it in the first place. But my facialist did say it had (I think) Cayenne pepper and mint in it. Or something like that.

            I use once a week with their acne wash to keep my unclog my pores, fade my current marks, and slough off the tired, dull dry skin of winter. I also use the multivitamin power recovery mask once a week to prevent my skin from getting dried out from the acid in the charcoal mask.

            I've done the dermalogica spa peels to reduce the pigmentation from my acne but since my skin kept breaking out I needed a weekly routine, which dermalogica helped me find. I also use the Clinique even better moisturizer, or philosophy's renewed hope.

            I wouldn't recommend this for sensitive skin unless you're going to double up with one of dermalogicas moisture barrier repair or the other mask.

            I was skeptical to buy this masque because of the all of the reviews claiming redness and irritation after using it. Nonetheless, I went ahead and purchased it anyway to try for myself. I have sensitive skin and this product didn't cause any irritation for me. My skin feels very smooth after using! The only con is it did really dry out my skin, but I applied my Strivectin moisturizer afterwards and everything was fine. Highly recommend!

            • Q:

              How do I pair this product with the daily microfoliant and the nightly clearing gel? Should I use microfoliant in the morning and masque at night? Or can I use microfoliant before the masque, and then the clearing gel after?

              Thanks!

                You should only use a masque 2-3 times a week at most. You will use daily microfoliant before the masque, and then the clearing gel after on the days that you use it.

                Hello Eli:

                Thank you for your interest in Dermalogica. The Charcoal Rescue Masque is applied generously to the face and throat after cleansing . Leave it on the skin for 7 to 10 minutes. Lightly massage with very wet hands to enhance the physical exfoliation properties during removal. Rinse thoroughly and follow with your prescribed toner and moisturizer. The Charcoal Rescue Masque may be used as needed 1-3 times a week, depending on how your skin responds. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
