Worked for my blackheads

    Comments about Clinique City Block Purifying Charcoal Clay Mask + Scrub:

    I was hesitate to purchase because I was looking for something to get rid of my blackheads on my chin instantly like the nose strips. But the girl gave me a sample, I just tried it and I am AMAZED at the results after just one use. My chin is clear and clean, I still have a few on my nose but I knew it wasn't suppose to be immediate to begin with. I'm definitely buying this product!! My face is also very soft and much brighter now.

      Comments about Clinique City Block Purifying Charcoal Clay Mask + Scrub:

      Here is what you need to know about me: early 30s, dry and sensitive skin.
      Use: Twice a week, nightime

      I adore this mask. I have very sensitive skin and this is one of the first facial masks that I can use that is gentle for my skin without sacrificing utility. I will use this mask on Sunday Night, which is my big skin care night, and either Wednesday/Thursday depending on my schedule. I will use this mask before I go into the rest of my routine. My skin feels clean and smooth with zero irritation (*please note: when I first used it, there was slight redness and irritation. But I find that to be normal with all new products - especially products that are meant to exfoliate - when they are used on sensitive skin. It was nothing dramatic, no pain, and I did not break out at all. By my 3rd use my skin had acclimated to the new product and I had zero reactions.)

      Comments about Clinique City Block Purifying Charcoal Clay Mask + Scrub:

      I thought my face was pretty clean and clear then I used this and realized I was wrong. It doesn't have some weird crazy coconut perfume smell. My skin felt so soft and clean. I was a little red after I used it but I attribute that more to the force with which I scrubbed. My face was soft and clean feeling hours after I used it! 10/10.

        I'm still trying this out haven't used enough to see if it makes a big difference with my skin.

        You don't need a lot of product, it spreads evenly and covers a lot of surface with the smallest amount. It dries nicely without feeling too tight on the skin. The exfoliant isn't not harsh to the skin when massaging it in.

        It will stain wash cloths so use dark ones or the expandable when wet/disposable ones. You can rinse off with water and your hands but it does take some effort and time to get it all off.

              I have been struggling with large pores/blackheads for a while and I have found this to reduce the size of my pores and reduce the amount of blackheads. They are not completely gone, but this product has really improved my skin. What I love most is that the mask firms the skin as it dries so my skin feels rejuvenated after rinsing it off. It also exfoliates and cleans my skin all with one product.
