This stuff really takes like 5 mins from application to rinse off. I apply it when my skin is feeling a little congested and it leaves my skin feeling super clean!
Most Helpful Critical Review Unique product
Dermalogica Clear Start Blackhead Clearing Fizz Mask
*I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review through Influenster. I have not let this affect my opinion or result in a bias.*
Dermalogica has gone above and beyond with this formula, it is claimed to be vegan, gluten-free, cruelty-free, paraben-free and include no artificial fragrance or colours. I think that covers just about every trait people would be concerned about!
The packaging is simplistic but not boring - the bright colours are quite eye-catching. The text is simple and the instructions are straightforward - Apply, Fizz, Remove. The pump took a long time to disperse product, at one point I even assumed it was broken until eventually I sprayed product all over my counter. This is important to note if you purchase this product, make sure you're patient if it doesn't come out immediately.
The product description says it targets blackheads before they turn into breakouts, and it is supposed to clean out your pores. I didn't find it to be very cleaning, and would definitely prefer to use a deep cleansing face wash before applying this mask.
The mask comes out of the pump an odd yellow-brown colour, which was a little unpleasant but it didn't smell bad (which was a relief because sulfur is an ingredient within). The scent was a very faint freshness, but it didn't last on the skin after rinsing. However the washcloth I used to remove the mask did have a sulfur smell afterwards.
The consistency is very similar to other liquid facial washes, but once you rub it in the product transforms into something entirely different. It foams up like a shaving mousse, but infused with co2 bubbles. The feeling is very unique and might be unpleasant for some - it feels like tiny bubbles popping all over your face all in random succession. I didn't mind it, but it did take a little while to get used to.
The first time I tried it I might've applied too much because my face quickly turned into a cloud

while it has decent ingredients the product instantly starts to frizz giving it no time to get into the pores and work effectively. looks cool when you're putting it on and that's about it.
You sit on a throne of lies.

Not a fan. Will not waste my money on this product. First time user. Last time user.

I was recommended this product by a friend. I had some bad blackheads on my nose that I couldn't get rid of for the life of me. Enter this product I love it I love how it feels and this fizzy feeling. My nose has never been clearer
Most interesting facial cleansing "mask" ever!!

Arlin from NY
This product does not work. At first, it does for a day. but then I get blackheads and whiteheads on my nose again. I think it also gave me acne and I also hate the smell. it was a waste of money. So disappointed.
Helped clear every blackhead on my nose
Beth from Chicago
My nose has been full of blackheads since high school and this mask is quick and fun, afterwards I use my extractor and they come out so much easier afterwards. My nose looks sooo much cleaner
Sky from CA
It's everything, for those w black heads make sure to buy a 2nd mask (charcoal) to get rid of them. This mask always cleans my face so well, but it dries it after. I use after workouts, and long days w/ make up.
did not do anything

this product does not do anything. i would never buy it again.
One of the best I've ever used but...
SkinFreak from San Jose
Don't rub it in too much or it won't work!!! Lightly spread it on your face (trying using three or less touches on your face). I made this mistake many times and it won't work if you keep spreading and pushing it into your skin.
would not recommend
paige from usa
i really wanted this after reading all the good reviews and it's not irritating at all but also did not work i have a lot of blackheads and haven't seen any results after 5 uses. this is not worth the money
Hannah from NC
I used this right before I went to sleep and I could tell a difference when I woke up
Cait from Virginia
I was really excited to try this product because it had so many good reviews, but I was disappointed after using it a few times. I don't feel like it cleans my pores well and it was very expensive. I won't be buying it again.
I would buy this product again!
Elizabeth from Modesto ca
It really works!!!
Feels really nice and I my skin is soft afterwards
I've bought too many products lol from Richland, WA
I bought this because over this quarantine, I've gotten so much acne from stress and hormones. I get blackheads and I have cystic acne. I use a pink drying lotion from Mario B. For the big acne over night, but it just wasn't cutting it anymore. I use Dermalogica's sunscreen and after reading some reviews for their clear start line, I decided to give it a try. I've tried so many different brands over the last couple of years and have switched around a lot trying to find something. Some work okay for a while, but never great.
I've used this a couple times and I definitely noticed how soft and refreshed my skin feels like afterwards. As far as blackheads go, some are still there, but slowly they are getting smaller and not so many are appearing anymore! I also noticed the pores on my nose don't clog up as much/as quickly and much less than before.
I use this along with the Clear Start face wash (the one with green letters) and my skin is looking so much better than before.
Can't say 5 stars because I haven't used it enough and it's not like super necessary I think because their face wash does an amazing job, but this is a good for a mid-afternoon face cleansing without it leaving you feeling dry.
Also, some people say it doesn't foam and I figured out that it's because it's worked in too much or you've put too much on. If you do a light layer and don't rub it in like you would a face wash, it foams up fairly quickly.
I will not buy again
Ceasar from Plattsburgh NY
After using this product for the first two nights i saw some rash on my side cheek that turns into a hard pimples
Okay, not great.
Abby from New Jersey
I read great reviews about this product, but honestly, I didn't see a huge difference before and after. I received the product a week or two ago and have used it about 3 or 4 times. Maybe I have to keep using it on a consistent weekly basis to see real results, but so far, this is nothing special. I have small blackheads on my nose, and this mask hasn't done a whole lot to help with removing them. I don't think I would buy it again, unless I see better results with more consistent use.
LOVE LOVE LOVE

I have black heads on my nose and after a week of using it, most of them have gone away!! You can actually feel this product working and actually see results within minutes
Steph2020 from Midwest
I use several products from Dermalogica but this was a dud. The bubbles were fun but it did not clean out my pores.
Naturalskinlover from San Jose, CA
I was very excited to use this product after reading the reviews. I only have blackheads just on my nose and I used it 4 times but have not seen any difference. My blackheads look the same as before. Just after I use it, I see my skin as clear but in few minutes I see the blackheads again. Very disappointed.
Fun but idk about helpful
Logs from Maryland
The mask is fun to use and leaves your face feeling super smooth. But I do not see much of a difference in my black heads on my nose (my target area).
Cori from New Jersey
I love to use this in my T-zone and where I have congestion. In conjunction with other active clear products, it has helped my blackheads. Also, its super fun to be fizzy for a few minutes!
Works so well!
Addie from San Diego, CA
I've only used the product twice, but it works so well. Totally bubbles out all the blackheads/dirt/oil from pores and noticed my skin was clearer in the morning after just one use. It will dry your skin out though so make sure you only put on problem areas and don't use too often. Highly recommend, though!!
Definitely makes a difference.
Ariel from Idaho
Like the title says, it definitely makes a great difference, even after one use. It evens out my skin and really cleaned my pores deep. I used it on my teenage son, too!
Val from Waco
This product really helps with cleaning up those blackheads around the nose area.
Melanie from fl
This product is miraculous. It really cleaned out my pores it was great ! I would totally recommend this if you are tired of those nasty little blackheads
