      Comments about Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Charcoal Mask:

      I just bought this today and couldn't wait to use it. Upon application, I noticed a slight tingling feeling, which I loved. It dried in about five minutes then I washed it off. When I looked at my nose, all of my whiteheads were brought to the surface! I quickly used my extractor tool and they all came out. It was gross but super effective!

      Irritate your skin

      By Chil

      from Brooklyn, New York

      About Me Brand Buyer

      Pros

      • Clogged pores

      Cons

      • Ineffective

      Best Uses

      • Normal skin

      Comments about Clinique Pore Refining Solutions Charcoal Mask:

      At first I'm really eager to buy this products as if a lot of people have a positive review for this. Don't use this products if you have sensitive acne prone skin clogging into your pores and give you little bump in your face, suitable for normal skin only. Though it works to other but not to acne prone skin or sensitive skin.

        I recommend this product for those who battle oily t-zones. I am sensitive and dry cheeks but this helps with my oily nose. You must repeat a minimum of twice a week to benefit from this product.

        So far so good :) I've only used this twice and I can already see and feel the difference. I only get hormonal acne on my chin but recently have been getting tiny skin colored bumps all over my face. I'm hoping this will clear out my clogged pores.

          • Q:

            Why is propylene glycol used in this product? After decades of skin sensitivity I have found that this is the culprit and I avoid anything with this ingredient (and it is everywhere!). I gravitated to Clinique for its attention to non-allergenic ingredients.

            Is this the kind of mask that you peel off and your blackheads are shown on the mask once you peel it off??

              Hi. You do not peel this specific mask. This mask uses charcoal to draw out impurities from the pores. After you apply the mask, you should let the mask harden on the skin, and rinse off with warm water. Thank you for your question and your interest in Clinique!
