In addition to using this mask once a week, stay on top of your zit-zapping game by applying DDF® Acne Control Treatment at night.

DDF®

Birchbox Breakdown

If the word sulfur calls to mind certain natural-disaster movies of the ‘90s (Dante’s Peak, anyone?), fear not—the ingredient in this acne-nixing mask is pure goodness. Formulated to soak up oil and keep pores clear, this mask has a regularly scheduled spot in our skincare regimen. Even better? We only have to apply it once a week. So it’s hardly a surprise that this mask won an Editor’s Choice Award from Allure.

How it Works

Made with 10% natural sulfur, this deep-cleaning mask soaks up oil and unclogs pores in 10 easy minutes. Aloe and sweet almond extract ensure that you don’t lose moisture while fighting breakouts.

How to Use

Once a week, apply a thin layer to acne-ridden trouble zones—face, chest, and back are all fair game. Let dry 5-10 minutes before rinsing with warm water. Don’t use this product or irritated or broken skin.

Active Ingredient: Sulfur
Inactive Ingredients: Water, bentonite, propylene glycol, talc, kaolin, gum arabic, titanium dioxide, PVP, diazolidinyl urea, glycerin, fragrance, methylparaben, aloe barbadensis leaf extract, sodium PCA, allantoin, propylparaben, prunus amygdalus dulcis (sweet almond) oil.

New Mask
Purchased

I just started using this face mask and I love feel of it as it goes on and is working. I am still getting some break outs but I am hoping these clear up the more I use this product (only used for 3 weeks).

So happy they sell this at Birchbox!!!

I have been buying DDF skin products probably for the last 10 years. I have been on prescription medications, prescription creams, washes, and have tried probably half of the acne-targeted skin products that are sold in stores and I ALWAYS go back to DDF. Today I went to pick up more face wash and this mask at Nordstrom, which is where I've always bought it, and they stopped carrying DDF products. I was so upset but I'm so relieved that it's here on Birchbox even though they sadly don't have the face wash I normally buy. I will probably buy the DDF acne kit instead because that blue foaming soap is good, just not my absolute favorite.

So anyway, back to this awesome product. This is the best mask I've ever used and I've tried lots of them because there's something so relaxing about putting a mask on after a long day of work. And lots of the masks I've recently tried have actually MADE me break out. Like I tried one for acne from Target and I have a horrible breakout now. :(

I've used it as an all over mask and also as a spot treatment over acne and slept with it on and that also works very well without being super drying like some of those acne creams.

If you have acne and are looking for a great mask to help clear breakouts, try this one!

So Far So Good

I have only used this product once but Since my skin has felt soft as far as acne goes I am going to assume it'll take more than one try before you see the results!

Worth it!

I have to admit, the smell is strong. The mask was more difficult to take off compared to the previous masks I've owned, but the product zapped my acne overnight! Well..shrunk it.

I like to to use this mask once a week as a prevention mechanism. Yet, the moment I see new pimples rise (hormonal), I like to use the mask as a spot treatment overnight. The area isn't red in the morning nor is it dry.

Overall, my pores are smaller and my sebaceous filaments are clean and no longer black!

great mask

This mask works great! I can already tell a difference just after one use. My skin is a lot softer too! The only downside is that there definitely is a slight sulfur smell.

Awesome mask!

This mask leaves skin feeling cleansed, without drying the skin. It dries quickly and rinses off easily. Definitely helps control grease and oil on your face.

Not your average mask

I have and love the DDF Acne control cream, so I thought I'd try the mask out. It is definitely an acne mask and not a every day relaxing mask. Mine burned a little bit at first application, but to me it just felt like it was really working. I've used it as a spot treatment as well and the blemishes clear up twice as fast. Would highly recommend!

So far so good!

I used this mask 1 time after receiving it and it left my skin soft for a few Days! As far as clearing up my acne: I don't know yet because you can only use it once a week. If you wanna see before progress pictures, my Instagram is DiaDiaries & follow!

miraculous!

rosacea outbreak- no problem
giant zit-no problem.

I use this as a spot treatment or a mask. It can be a little drying, so I recommend a moisturizer after treatment.

This has a minty smell (probably to counteract the sulphur smell) I'm not bothered by it but I imagine some people would be.

I love this product and it works better than the prescription topical I used to use.

Great feelings, great results

I bought this a few weeks after I started law school. I guess the stress really got to my skin, because my forehead looked like a war zone. After reading lots of reviews all over the internet, I decided to buy the mask. Here's some info:
(1) It does not smell terrible, as I had feared with the amount of sulfur in it.
(2) This stuff works great.
I saw a dramatic difference in my skin in about a week, and my face felt softer when using this. I use it as a mask as the box says, but also keep it on overnight as spot treatment when my face starts breaking out again. It works like magic. Definitely worth the money.
