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

      I totally forgot about Clinique skincare, thank god for the Clinique lady who recommended this to me!
      It can be used as a scrub and a mask. I've been using it as a mask (once or twice a week), and I saw amazing results after just first use (blackheads all over nose and cheeks for a few weeks before use).
      I have combination skin, but my skin can be sensitive too, and this product did not irritate my skin at all. My skin is left feeling clean and not too over drying. I just pat dry my face, and moisturize like usual.
      If you need help with taking care of blackheads and unclogging pores (especially in your T-Zone), buy this.

        I'm really into masks, and usually go the sheet mask way. I also use alot of clinque, so when I picked this up was looking for a choarcol mask that I didn't have to scrub off for ten minutes. It's comes off easy and left me feeling more expoliated than ever. It didn't burn (and I sentative skin).

        By alyssam1

        from NY

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

        This is the only mask that truly exfoliates the dirt out of my pores. Great after a long day at work, feel fresh and clean after using it. Doesn't take long to dry and is easy to remove. Has helped with blackheads on my nose/chin and acne scars. Definitely worth the money, a little goes a long way and the tube is a great size!

        I've used this twice now and I noticed results after the first time, my face looks smoother. My skin is normal-oily and can be sensitive to some products but I haven't have a reaction to this mask . My husband is also using it and I can see his face looking better already. I leave it on for 10-15mins.

        Usually use all natural products, but this is a game changer

        By KJC

        from Colorado

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

        I strayed from my usual all organic, completely natural products because I felt like the sebaceous filaments on my nose made me look like I had blackheads galore and I needed something that would work. This product blew my mind! The clay pulled out the impacts oils on my nose like no other high end product I've tried! It dries super quickly and the ingredient list is surprisingly natural, with some preservatives pretty much! This is my new HG mask for when I have blemishes or blackheads or just need to clear up my pores. For the record, I'm 41 with very dry / sensitive skin. And I've tried glycolic peels, lactic acid, salicylic acid, aha/bha stuff and nothing got rid of my nose issues besides this. It didn't irritate me or dry me out too much at all, although I did follow up with my normal night time oil/serum/moisturizer routine.

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

            I received this as a free gift buying another product and I am back to purchase the full size. I have very sensitive skin so I was weary about a charcoal, blue, "wait until hardens" so to speak- its amazing!! whenever my face is feeling like it needs a pick me up- this is my "go to" product. It truly leaves your skin feeling ultra clean and pores start to diminish. I use it 2-3xs a week. I have extremely sensitive skin and I have no reaction other than excellent to provide. I have been using Clinique since I was in middle school- as My Mom always gave me her freebies- then throughout High school/college. I moved on to Lancome- then Obagi ZoSkin - Skincueticals- the "mature" lines :) but I have to say this is a winner! Leaves my face so clean and fresh- a definite add to my regimen now!!

              Gives my skin a pick-me-up. I use this product when I feel my skin getting ready for a break-out or getting greasy or anything else I don't like. Other acne treatments are too harsh and make my skin even worse. This is just the right fix for my face.

                    Hello. Anytime you are experiencing breakout, you will avoid manual exfoliation as it spreads acne bacteria. Try Clinique Acne Solutions Oil-Control Cleansing Mask for an oil-absorbing, acne fighting mask. Be sure to let us know what you think!
