Most Helpful Positive Review Fun and quick!
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

Haven't seen a difference on my nose where I use this but it's very fun and makes me feel like it's doing something.
It did nothing
Megan from MI
I have oily skin and some clogged pores around my nose. My boyfriend has blackheads on his nose. A representative at the store recommended we both try this. Applied it 2-3x a week for 3 weeks and saw zero results. It pretty much did nothing. It feels nice when it fizzes but smells pretty bad.
Karina from Bronx,NY
I have been using the product for a week. Actually it works I haven't break out and it does clean up my pores. I leave it on for 5 minutes in that way I don't get any pimples. It unclogs my pores. definitely I will be buying this product again once the one that I have finishes.,
Weird smell but works
Kassbene30 from Bronx, NY
I was hesitant to use this product, but it works it helps unclog my oily skin pores that cause acne. I use it everyday. Even though, it says 2-3 days a week. So far is working.
Weird smell and no very effective
Whskeyrose from NC
I love bubble sheet masks but they can be expensive. I thought I'd try this since the price was good. Smells don't usually bother me but this has a very weird smell and it lingers even after you wash the mask off. And my face doesn't necessarily feel refreshed or cleaned after using it. It works just not like I thought it would. If it wasn't for the smell I would have given it more stars.

I use it twice a week, and after I wash it off my face feels cleaner.
Stephanie from Ohio
I have this a pretty fair chance and it doesn't work at all. It just dries out your skin and smells bad like sulfur
really works !!!!

i use this every other day and it makes my skin soft and glowy. i love it
Karla from South Dakota
Not sure if this really helps my skin. The jury is still out.
J. from West Valley
Disappointed, I was excited to use it for the first time, but my girlfriend was warning me because she said nobody would do inventory at this location!
After applying it was hard to rinse off not only that but the smell was definitely old and it stayed on my nose. This Ulta location at Valley Fair Mall is known for leaving products sitting on the shelfs for months, employees who've worked there have confirmed this for me we wouldn't recommend mobile ordering if you're not aware if it's new. It's an improvement they should make regardless, instead of caring about profits.
What a fun mask
LT from Colorado
I was so excited to try this. I think it dried my sensitive skin up a little bit, but my face is very clean.
~waste of money~
lol from nc
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.
Kase from Pennsylvania
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!!

This stuff knocks your socks off while fizzing your face!! YOU HAVE TO TRY IT!!!
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

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.
