A great mask, but overpriced
A great mask for unclogging pores, refreshing skin and drawing oil out of skin, but for the results after using 2-3 times a week, I feel this product is overpriced. A good product, but certainly not value for money, which is disappointing. Had the results been amazing, I would certainly spend top dollar, but this was not the case.

It really does draw out all impurities.
The best part? It doesn't overly dry or make my skin feel super tight.
It still feels supple, deeply cleansed and refreshed.
Everything I look for in a mask like this.

Great for oily skin!
I love this mask!I have extremely oily t-zone areas and this works absolute wonders in keeping those areas oil free.I only need to use this once a week and the results are amazing. From the first use my skin was noticably smoother and I had less breakouts.I love the icy tingly feeling you get when you apply this mask.Really feels like it is working(and it is!):).
Another great product from Dermalogica!

I have to admit, after years of using fresh masks I was doubtful that a 'normal' mask could ever compare. However, like with many Dermalogica products, I was wrong. This is easily one of the best mask for oily/breakout-prone skin I have used.
The great thing about this mask is that not only does it help clear up your skin, it does so with no irritation. I use this mask 2-3 times per week and replace it with my regular cleanser. I generally don't moisturise after washing it off as my skin is left soft, smooth and perfectly matte. However, you would probably need to moisturise if your skin is more combination rather than oily.
What I really like about this mask is that my skin is left matte and much less oily that what it usually is. And, of course, it does a sensational job at clearing up congestion and any breakouts you might have.
Overall, this is a great mask for breakout prone skin and/or skin on the oily side. It fits in great with other members of the Dermalogica family, particularly the rest of the MediBac range.

Great as an overnight spot treatment
This is too harsh for my entire face or even t-zone. It does however work great if you dab a bit on blemishes before you go to sleep. They are calmer and smaller by the morning.

Bye Bye Oil!
Absolutely love this mask, it is a must have with my skin. Anyone with oily skin would know the feeling that the skin is 'unclean' with the layer of oil sitting over the top. Using the mask completely erradicates this feeling and gives skin a great deep cleanse by breaking down the oil and drawing out all the yucky impurites lurking under the skin's surface. On application, it is cooling and very soothing - great if you have any angry red acne. Skin feels so refreshed after the yucky feeling of the oil slick. It is very pleasant while you wait for the mask to do it's magic, skin does not go tight or itchy. It does somethimes slightly tingle however nothing unpleasant at all. On removal skin is slightly red but this subsides very quickly. Skin is super clean and fresh, as well as brighter. Pores are visbly refined. I have oily acne prone skin with enlarged pores and due to this the build up of oil (even after just the day at work) the oil creates an 'orange peel' look of skin. This mask breaks down the waxy looking skin, pores are super clean and the texture of the skin is more refined without being dried out. The day after application, any pimles are reduced. This one is a saviour for me!

This is a stable in my breakout fighting routine. I love the fact that it's gentle enough to use up to three times a week, even on dryer skin types like mine as you sometimes need that regularity when treating a breakout and I've found oter clearing masques to be way too drying and recomended for once per week. I use this when I get one of those attacks of bumps under the skin on my T-Zone only and find it flattens both flattens and brightens. You can also sleep in it when you get a volcano on your face and it really does work to improve it overnight.

What A Difference
WOW even after one use I have already noticed a big difference in my skin. The mask felt cool and tingly while on but it was a good feeling. Once removed my skin did look a bit red but that went away in a few minutes. The next day my skin looked nice and clear no oily T-Zone.
