Acure Brightening Face Mask

While we love our go-to facial wash, sometimes our skin needs a way deeper clean. Enter: this French green clay face mask, which sheds weekly dirt and grime buildup. Active stem cells and CGF (chlorella growth factor) revitalize skin cells—leaving a refreshing tingling feeling—while argan and seabuckthorn oils provide moisture and hydration.

Disappointed
Purchased

I purchased this mask after reading all good reviews. I don't have sensitive skin or other skin problems but this mask is horrible. I've used it several times and each time my skin had a reaction to it. My face turns very red and stays like that for several hours.

Made my skin burn. I had to wipe this off almost immediately, glad I just spot tested it. Maybe it works for other people

My skin says "nope"

I gave it a shot a few different times and every time I used it my entire face would be red a blotchy for days afterward. Use with caution especially if you have sensitive skin.

not good for sensitive skin
Sampled

I tried this out on the back of my hand and my wrist and it was fine but when I put it on my face, it was a disaster. I used it sparingly because the smell was quite awful. It started burning my face and left my face very red for a while afterwards. It was very irritating.

Too Harsh for Sensitive Skin
Sampled

This mask just wasn't for me. I have very sensitive skin and it did not react well to this mask. It was so irritating while I had it on that I wasn't able to keep it on for the recommended amount. Then after I took it off my skin felt dry and was visibly irritated. Maybe it will for on different skin types but sensitive sin beware.

Redness!

I got this as a sample and it left my face very red and splotchy. I've never reacted to a skincare product before EVER and I was very surprised, especially since this is supposed to be for senstive skin! Just wanted to pass along a warning.

Can we say RED!?

This product is awful! After one use my face looked like it had the worst sunburn of my life. It was so painful and my face was bright red for over a day. I'm not sure what is in this product but I am steering clear of this entire line.

Painful!
Sampled

I was excited to use this mask because I like some of Acure's other products, but the second I put this on it started to burn my face! It was so painful I had to wash it off after a minute or so.

burning sensation
Sampled

I was thrilled to try a mask when I received it as one of the samples of the month. I normally have normal combination skin but this mask burned as soon as I applied it. It's a fun color and the smell doesn't bother me but when I washed it off, my skin was left with red blotches. I think it even broke out my skin.

I tried applying it multiple times but still had the same outcome unfortunately. I would not recommend this

Ouch!

I took this face mask off after about 15 seconds and won't be using this again. It left a burning sensation on my skin immediately after application.
