Although it may seem counterintuitive, the best way to combat oil and grease is to keep skin properly moisturized. Try Paula's Choice RESIST Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator, a lightweight moisturizer that combats acne-causing bacteria.

Birchbox Breakdown

Does your blotting paper look like a piece of clear plastic wrap when you’re done wiping your face? If you answered “yes,” then it’s time to bring out the big guns. This gentle-yet-powerful clay mask from Paula’s Choice zaps grease, targets blackheads, and improves texture without drying skin or giving it that uncomfortably tight feeling. The result: remarkably soft, smooth, matte skin.

How to Use

After cleansing, apply a thin layer of product all over face and (if needed) neck. Let dry for 10–15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and follow with moisturizer. Those with oily to very oily skin can use this mask several times a week, while those with normal to slightly oily skin can use it less frequently (so, about once or twice a week).

Great mask for oily complexions
Purchased

I love this mask! It is great for keeping my oily and acne-prone complexion clear. I use this once a week to keep my oily complexion at bay. It does feel quite dry and tight on, but I notice that my skin is much less oily after using this once a week.

Very nice!
Purchased

This is another great product from Paula's choice. I have been using it twice per week and my skin is significantly less oily and redness is decreased. Not irritating and did not tingle on application. A key part of my weekly skin routine!

such a nice clay mask
Purchased

This mask is so different from the normal masks! It doesnt get tight, it almost soaks into your skin. I tried it on my hand the first time and after i washed it off, my hand was noticibly brighter and softer. It also has a nice smell. its really calm, and not at all perfumy. its a very nice, clean smell and it feels so good on my skin. Less oily, less red. Love it!!

Amazing results!
Purchased

Amazing just like all of the Paula's Choice products! My skin instantly looked brighter and has cleared up significantly with just a few uses. My skin is very oily and it kept the oil at bay the next day. Would definitely recommend!

Great for my oily face!
Purchased

This mask is just what I've been looking for! My face gets super oily in the spring/summer! I could literally feel it sucking all of the oil out of my face! Even the next couple of day my face is not as oily! Would def. recommend to anyone with a oily face!

Good but not great
Purchased

I like to experiment with masks and this is a good overall basic oil-absorbing mask. It's not the best but it's certainly far from the worst. It's a good staple to use a couple times a week as part of my skincare routine.

I love clay masks, and this one is really effective. After regular use I have noticed less face-shininess overall, and my skin is really soft.

Love this face mask

I really like how this face mask leaves my face feeling after I use it! It leaves my face feeling very clean of impurities and less oily after using as well.

Works great!
Purchased

So glad I purchased this, it really helps with excess oil and clearing up my face. I use it at least once a week either before bed or first thing in the morning and it leaves my face feeling clean and refreshed.

Good Clay Mask
Purchased

I am a collector of clay face masks because or my oily skin, but this one is pretty good. I wasn't sure how it would come out since Murad's Clarifying Clay Mask is one of my all time favorites, but this mask held up pretty well. it goes ok thin and dries restively fast with a tingling sensation at first. it does aboard a good amount of oil too so I usually use it in the morning to reduce my oily patches throughout the day.
