Now that your skin is in tip-top shape, keep it protected with Pür Minerals CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 40

Pür Minerals

Birchbox Breakdown

At the risk of sounding gross, sometimes our pores can be harder to unclog than the shower drains in our pre-war apartments. (See, gross.) Designed with all skin types in mind, this exfoliating mud mask contains clay sourced from the Big Horn Mountains out west to lift away all kinds of impurities, leaving skin bright and smooth. If only reaching our landlords was so easy.

How it Works

Pascalite clay, which Native Americans in Wyoming have used on their skin for centuries, contains calcium bentonite to calm both chronic and sudden irritation (fun fact: It’s traditionally used to treat insect bites and stings). Cucumber extract reduces redness, while a mild dose of salicylic acid sloughs away dead cells to renew skin and fight breakouts. The nondrying formula is gluten-free and suitable for sensitive types.

How to Use

Spread a thin layer of the mask onto clean skin. Wait until it dries and cracks appear on the surface. Gently rinse with warm water.

In love with this mask!
Purchased

Although the smell isn't the best, this mask brightened up my skin and shrank my pores! It is a little difficult to remove so I would recommend putting it on before you shower for easier removal. My skin is a little red after removing, but it goes away quickly.

Best mask ever!
Purchased

I'm in love with this mask! As it dries it tightens and pulls everything out of your pores. You can actually feel your skin pulsate. Your skin is red after you wash it away but it goes right away. Your skin looks visibly clearer and smoother. I've purchased tons of masks that say they unclog pores and don't ...this one actually does..you will not be disappointed!!

Fabulous
Purchased

I've been testing our different masks for cleaning, hydrating, etc. This is so far my favorite detoxing masque.

I have pretty sensitive skin and was worried about over-drying or hypersensitivity afterward -- BUT neither was a problem. I definitely feel the masque working as it dries --you face feels tighter (and it pulls your lips apart as another reviewer stated), and you have to be gentle and patient washing the masque off -- but it's worth it. My skin felt super clean afterwards.

One note, I immediately followed with gentle/calming + super hydrating hyaluronic masque -- and I was able to pacify the redness.

Great masque
Purchased

I love this product. My skin was looking very dull with the first days of cold weather and this brightened it right up. It sucks out all the bad stuff without over drying, leaving my skin glowing.

Best mask
Purchased

Honestly, I've used $3 mud masks and have been impressed with the results; however, this product is completely worth the sticker price! It makes my skin so smooth and shrinks my pores! My face feels so clean...I...love...this....mask!

Yes!

I've never been a really big fan of masks but this has made me change my mind. It sucks out all the bad stuff from your pores and leaves your face looking glowing. You do have to use quite a bit in order to cover your entire face which I wasn't too happy about considering the price HOWEVER, it is worth it.

Excellent Mask
Purchased

I have been experimenting with various face masks for longer than I would like to admit. This should definitely be your go to mask when your skin is needing a little oomph. You can feel this working, I just used this for maybe the second or third time since owning it and honestly wondered why I don't use it more often.

You can feel the product working. It literally pulled my lips apart while it was drying. If you have sensitive skin like me, don't use this product if you plan on going out within a few hours. It does make my skin very red after but a little redness is worth the results in my opinion! I will ALWAYS keep this product in stock at my house!

Just what I needed
Purchased

I have been dying for a mud/clay mask, but nothing seemed quite right. I decided to jump for this one without sampling it first, but no need. It's just what I wanted-- something I can use every now and then when my pores need some attention. I've used it twice so far-- my skin feels so smooth and clean after. Not painful like strips. It really does the job.

Great Face Mask
Purchased

This is exactly what I was looking for. I just wanted something that I could put on occasionally to help unclog my pores and smooth out my complexion and it works great.
