Pore Clarifying Charcoal Gel Mask
What does it do?
Balance skin and decongest pores.
This gel mask combines charcoal to draw out impurities and natural clays (kaolin and bentonite) to absorb excess oil helping to minimise and decongest pores. The easy to rinse gel formula also contains willow-bark and glycerin to soothe and lightly-hydrate skin, leaving it smoother, clearer and more balanced.

Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.If you have sensitive skin, like me, leave it on about 6 to 8 minutes, or else you'll get a nice red burn. I'm happy with it, after using it I'll go in with the rest of my exfoliating routine.
Hope that helps, enjoy!

This is not a typical response and I'm glad you've found a way to incorporate this into your routine to see the benefits without irritation.

Frequently asked questions:
What's the difference between the Pore Clarifying Charcoal Gel Mask and other Masks of Paula's Choice?
The biggest difference between the Pore Clarifying Gel Mask and other Paula's Choice masks is the texture. It feels lighter on the skin and has a super-soft finish after drying. This is different from Skin Balancing Mask which has a thicker clay texture. The Pore Clarifying Charcoal Gel Mask has a unique combination of ingredients that allow for optimal oil absorption while leaving the skin feeling soft and soothed.
