Niacinamide, Zinc Gluconate, Yeast Extract, Caffeine and Biotin purify and inhibit overactive sebaceous gland activity while soothing irritation. Salicylic Acid clears congested follicles to minimize development of future comedones and breakouts, while Spiraea and Cinnamon Bark extracts inhibit the growth of acnegenic bacteria while stimulating the skin's natural antimicrobial agents for clearer, healthier skin. Contains no artificial fragrance or color.

  • Niacinamide, Yeast Extract, Horse Chestnut, Licorice, Panthenol (Pro-Vitamin B5) and Caffeine regulate sebum production and soothe inflammation
  • Zinc Gluconate and Caffeine help regulate sebum production and help control bacterial metabolism of sebum-reducing inflammation

Great for adult acne suffers with hormonal imbalances

By Mrsboobookitty

from Chicago,IL

Comments about Dermalogica Sebum Clearing Masque:

I have notice that adding this to my face prep three times a week has now done wonders. I suffer from PCOS so acne will forever haunt me, but I have incorporated this with the daily microfoliant and special cleansing wash along with touch spots of the overnight clearing gel on acne prone areas near the chin and upper t-zone. I have seen vast improvements on acne appearing less. I have gotten to the point where if I find what works I cannot miss a day of regimen or the work starts all over again. I do highly recommend this for my acne suffers.

In Love With This Product

By Beauty Challeneged

from Illinois

Comments about Dermalogica Sebum Clearing Masque:

First off, I have combo/oily skin that has been breaking out nonstop for the past 3 months. I was using Clinique prior to the breakouts and it was meh. It didn't remove the makeup at all, and left my skin feeling dry causing my face to create more oil.

The first time I used this mask I was truly impressed! It pulled all the gunk to the surface (yes causing Whiteheads) and was cleared up by morning after using a Dermalogica toner and moisturizer! I would highly recommend this product and the Dermalogica line!

Used in combination with Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel, Multi Active Toner, and Active Moist Moisturizer.

    Comments about Dermalogica Sebum Clearing Masque:

    This was recommend to me by the Ulta esthetician after a facial. I am not sure it this is worth it or not. It feels great on the skin, so refreshing and tingly in a good way. It helps with redness and inflammation and skin is left super soft right after. But it doesn't dry out acne and the inflammation and redness comes back the next day. This is more of a temporary fix or for someone with mild acne. I suffer from hormonal cystic acne and didn't work for me :/

    Gave me more whiteheads

    By Sara

    Comments about Dermalogica Sebum Clearing Masque:

    I don't know what's going on with Dermalogica, but their products have broken me out. My skin is inflamed and covered with whitehead's. I thought this would help calm the sebum production down. Nope! My skin developed red splotches and then sprouted hot, itchy whiteheads.

    I would return this product and the others I purchased, but don't have the receipt or the boxes they came in.

      Comments about Dermalogica Sebum Clearing Masque:

      I was so afraid to spend money on the Dermalogica line but I'm getting married this summer and my skin needs help. My girlfriend is an aesthetician and highly recommended this brand. She was SO right. I used this masque ONE time and I already see a difference. I had two small pimples near my chin, put the masque on, and this morning they were gone. No red marks, no blotches.

      This is a serious miracle worker. If you can, treat yourself to the line of Dermalogica. I have combination skin and it's very sensitive. This line is gentle but effective. My skin FEELS clean and I even have had compliments that it's glowing. Treat yo' self and try it!

      Amazing!

      By AmericanH0ney

      from Atlanta

      Comments about Dermalogica Sebum Clearing Masque:

      I put the masque on pretty thick around my chin as soon as I hop into the shower and wash off right before I step out (2-3 times per week.) my problem areas are never a problem anymore! I've had regular cystic acne for years, maybe decades. I turn 34 tmrw and this is the only thing that has ever worked for me and cleared my skin! The small, travel bottle lasts a while, but I did take a hit on the cost and bought full bottles. I've used it regularly over the past 8 months or so and my skin only gets better.

        I had a facial done at the Dermalogica Skin bar, and I loved how this felt on my face. It is refreshing with tingly, minty sensations all over. It makes me feel like my pores are being thoroughly treated. It makes my skin feel softer and reduces some of the breakouts I have. I use this twice a week. I would recommend!

        Was very hesitant to buy this because of the price... BUT I've used it twice now and it works so well! I am obsessed with getting sebum out of my pores. For the longest time I thought they were blackheads. This works best after washing face, gently squeezing sebum out of pores, then steaming. Literally makes your pores shrink because it removes the built up oil!

            So I didn't want to get this mask but I am so glad I did. I got it using my ultra points but I will buy this again in a heartbeat. Help my sebum and my darkmarks. After about 4 uses my dark marks are dramatically faded and my skin feels smooth and soft and makes applies so much better. Will always buy this mask !

                Charcoal Rescue Masque would be a better choice for clogged follicles. This masque has both chemical and physical exfoliation which will help to clear follicles.

                This masque can help to prevent new milia from forming. You will also need to check your other products and make up to make sure there isn't anything you are using that is causing your milia. To remove milia from the cheek area we recommend Overnight Retinol Repair.
