Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask
1.7 oz / 48 g
Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask deeply detoxifies skin of harmful micropollutants in two ways: (1) Natural clays infused with Kimarine® Wakame, Bladerwrack and Activated Charcoal lift out dirt, oil and bacteria to decongest pores as the mask dries; (2) Apricot Seed Powder exfoliates away dead skin cells and captured debris upon removal. Kaolin and Bentonite Clays absorb excess oils and impurities, relieving skin congestion. Kimarine® Wakame is a potassium-rich, magnesium-rich seaweed that is clinically proven to protect skin against environmental pollutants (exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke, heavy metals). Bladderwrack is an antioxidant-rich, mineral-rich seaweed known for its water-binding properties, supporting healthy skin hydration and nourishment. Activated Charcoal, known for absorbing 100 to 200 times its weight in impurities, purges pores of deeply rooted toxins, then Apricot Seed Powder gently exfoliates away micropollutants. Ideal for oily, active or urban skin types, even safe for reactive skin (minimal ingredients and allergy-tested), used this formula once or twice a week for skin that looks dramatically fresher, healthier and purely glowing.

Finally, something that works for me.
I am 30+ And I'm still fighting acne. I have very sensitive skin, so many products are too harsh for me. I had a facial recently. The aesthetician told me that my over productive, clogged oil glands are the cause of my acne. She recommended this product. She told me to place a warm towel on my face to open my pores, then use the product as directed. This is the best thing I have ever tried. And I have tried almost everything. When I wash the mask off, my face feels so light and my pores feel clean. Considering I use it 2-3 times a week, it's a bit expensive for the amount of product. But I will definitely recommend this product.

Product is great, packaging is terrible
I like this product. I enjoy the tingling feeling that gives the skin while it's drying and I can tell that my pores are less clogged.
However, I won't be buying this again because of the packaging. Even though I make sure to close it tightly so it won't dry out, it seems to dry out regardless. This leads to having to put quite a bit of pressure on the tube in order to get the product out and, when it finally decides to come out, it goes absolutely everywhere.
So, rather than applying a mask and relaxing while it does its thing, I apply whatever amount of mask manages to stay in my hand, then I get to clean up my entire bathroom. This stuff splattered all over the place and I was finding drips of it 5 feet away.

I'm surprised no one else in the reviews has mentioned this, so maybe it's just me, but this mask actually dyes my skin grey! Even after washing it off, I look like I have just emerged from the coal mines and it takes quite a bit of scrubbing with a washcloth to get it all off.
That being said, for the condition it leaves my skin in, this minor side effect is TOTALLY worth it! My skin looks and feels amazing after using this mask. Better than any mask I have used before!

5 star product, 1 star packaging and size!
This purifying line is my first experience with derma e and so far I love it! I hated the moisturizer, toner, and serum as they are all aloe based and dry very sticky like aloe vera, making my face feel gunked up (def not good under makeup IMO). But I love the cleanser and this, and I would like to try the scrub (my local WF doesn't carry).
Normally, I review products based on how well they work because that's all I care about. But in this case, I have to heavily deduct for the packaging. The tube is extremely hard to squeeze out and the nozzle gets gunked up so I now take it off completely each time. The product separates and I often get black water out only, which is weird. But the biggest complaint I have is that this is literally a sample sized product -- 1.7 ounces -- and priced at $20. I've used it 4 or maybe 5 times and am almost out, having to squeeze like toothpaste to get any out. I think it does it's job and cleans pores, but 4-5 uses is pretty pathetic for the price IMO.

ok but drying
I don't use foundation, BB creams, powders, or gels on my face; I only use moisturizers. My workouts make me drip with sweat a few times a week. I am pretty careful with my diet and I don't drink alcohol. I feel grateful to have firm, normal, youthful skin (in my mid-40s)I stick to a quick and simple facial care regimen. Therefore, this product is not a necessity. But the novelty of using a face mask decades after I had done so in my younger years, appealed to me. I only used it once in the mild-to-warm September of the CA Bay Area. I won't purchase this again, as there were no noticeable benefits. I think this product would be better suited to those w/oilier skin and to those who wear a number of make-up products.

Feels just right!
To be honest, I received a sample size of this in my monthly subscription to 'Birchbox'. I've used Derma e products before but it usually takes a bit before I see any results. Though this time, I'm seeing the full effects in just a day! With the combined forces of a charcoal mask and exfoliate I notice my pores being more 'refined', pimples shrinking down and skin feeling smoother then a baby's bottom. In order to get this kind of outcome I would have to fork over an arm or leg. I would be definitely getting the full-size version of this!.

I love that this is a mask and a scrub, you save time and space in your medicine cabinet. It also works great. My foundation looks amazing after I do this treatment. I would buy again.

Made my skin feel so soft!
I go a free sample of this at the dermatologist and I decided to test a little on my nose and forehead after a shower one night just to see how I would react to it. The weekend before I had burned my face at the beach so I waited a few days before using it, and all the peeling burnt skin came right off along with the blackheads. The next night I decided to do my whole face and I had great results. My face feltvextremely soft and very clean. I will definitely buy this product again!
