Based on 26 reviews
Balance oily skin and decongest pores with charcoal and natural clays suspended in a soothing gel mask for a refreshed, shine-free complexion.

Why is it different?
This unique charcoal gel attracts oil and skin impurities like a magnet so they can be rinsed away, leaving pores less congested and visibly minimized. Skin looks matte and feels refreshingly balanced—never tight or dry.
What does it do?
The blend of porous charcoal, natural clays (kaolin and bentonite), and tapioca starch absorb skin’s surface oil on contact. Willow herb and soothing agents calm skin, while skin-replenishing glycerin adds a touch of hydration for a balanced complexion.
How to use
Apply a generous layer all over the face and let dry for 10-15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with water. May be used as often as needed.

A Must-Have Charcoal Mask!


I've tried a lot of charcoal masks to help minimize my large pores and keep my skin decongested especially since I wear makeup on a daily basis. This is the only charcoal mask I've used that's clarifying, hydrating and gentle which is a big plus since my skin is very sensitive due to using Retin-A. I would suggest this mask to anyone...it's definitely a great addition to your skincare routine!

Great cleanser too !


One night I accidentally put this face mask on wet skin. I must have been half asleep ! Instead of washing the mask off and drying my skin, I started to rub the mask in (face and neck) using circular motions; I then left it on for a few minutes while I brushed my teeth. When I removed the mask with a facecloth my skin looked so beautiful. I've always washed my face twice at night. I really like Paula's Perfect Cleansing Oil for my 1st wash but I haven't been able to find that perfect 2nd cleanser until now. Since that night this mask is now my 2nd cleanser. I use it every night. I'm 66 with combo skin; I am battling wrinkles and breakouts ! My skin honesty has never looked so good. Paula's products are spectacular !

Recommended by a mask junkie


I have bags of single serve test masks from other retailers. They are my favourite way to indulge and relax and I have tried almost everything on the market, especially those for large pores. But this mask is my new ride or die. I used to use the PC oil absorbing mask but will only buy this from now on. If you have large pores and want to feel immediately smooth results after, this is the must get mask. Somehow purges junk, softens pores to make them easier to extract and keeps your skin moisturized and soft for days after all at the same time. Provides a blank smooth slate for chemical exfoliants or your cream. But if you like masks that harden or you have to peel off, this isn't the one for you. Tip: apply with a brush to maximize coverage and extend the product. Also spot apply instead of applying all over as it may irritate areas with less obvious pores.




Just what I was looking for!


I got this for my husband st Christmas and we both use it regularly. It goes a long, long way! If your looking for a charcoal mask I highly recommend this one. A lot of product and bang for your buck.

Perfect for my combination skin


I have tried so many masks, and usually end up disappointed with the results. I have extreme combination skin, so I typically struggle finding products that are able to deep clean the congestion I get on the skin around my nose and chin, but not dry out my cheeks. This product is amazing! After the first use I noticed my pores appeared smaller and my skin texture was smoother. I use it twice a week and it's now an essential in my skin care routine!




Best Charcoal Mask Ever!


I love masks and have used MANY! My skin tends to be oily(a little less so now that I'm in my early 50's) and I've always had larger pores and some blackheads in my "T-Zone". This charcoal mask is different because of the lightweight gel texture making it so much easier to wash off. I use it 2-4 times a week and love the results! It leaves my skin baby soft, super clean, and virtually free of noticeable pores. It's a staple in my skin care routine. I bought sample sizes to keep in my toiletry bag so I can use when we travel. If you have dryer skin I still think it's something that would be great to use but maybe just less often. Thanks Paula for another winner!




Best Mask on the Market


Do you have large pores? Do you have combination oily skin? Do you have random flaky spots? Do you have acne prone skin? Do you have A FACE??? Then this is for you. It gets all the junk out of your pores in a non-abrasive and effective way, and when you wash it off there is going to be parts of your face where you can't even SEE a pore. If you want the best skin of your life, put your favorite toner and exfoliant on after, followed by the 10% Niacinamide, then finish with a great soothing moisturizer like Skin Balancing Invisible Finish Gel or Radiance Renewal Mask. You'll wake up the next morning with the best skin of your life.

Overall great mask


I use it in the morning at least 3 or 4 times a week. My pores look smaller and sebaceous filmantes reduced when I use it regularly. I like that it is not too drying- a kaolin clay mask I was using previously made my skin flake if I used it too much but this mask doesn't. I also like that it isn't hard to wash off. I'll keep buying it for sure.

Look no further if you have blackheads


Honestly the best mask I've ever used to target my clogged pores and I've tried a huge number of brands like origins and glamglow and nothing have given me results like this. At first when I put it on it was a very lightweight texture and I spread it on thinly and it started stinging and itching a little. After 15 minutes I removed and what I love about this mask is that you can use water and with circular motions it will lather and turn foamy and rinse off super easily unlike many other clay charcoal pore purifying masks where I found really hard to completely get rid of all residue. Anyways when I saw the results afterward I was shocked beyond belief. My pores were shrunken so small and many of blackheads disappeared or were super tiny and barely noticeable on my face. It's been one week of using this and my pores are still unclogged and are super small. I love this mask like guys if you suffer from blackheads trust me I'm a 19 year old girl and my face is infested with them and this helped so much and I've tried from drugstore to high end nothing has helped so much. Worth every penny and my new secret weapon :")
