Most Helpful Positive

Gentle clay mask


This is probably one of the most gentle clay masks I own, doesn't leave my skin feeling dry but more refreshed (worth noting that I have combination skin). I like to use this weekly, especially in warmer months to help with oily skin.

Most Helpful Criticism

Not good for dry skin


This gives my skin a deep clean but if I'm feeling dry it will dry out my skin. This is great for people with oily skin.

  2. Great!


    Great mask ! There’s a visible difference after applying it . Skin appears clearer and brighter.
  3. Deep clean


    Good product, gives a very deep clean. Can dry the skin out though.

  5. feels good, smells good


    I expected high quality from La Roche-Posay, I have their sunscreen and I love it so I was confident I was going to love this too.
    This mask feels really good on, doesn't sting but feels clean (you know?), it smells good which is an added bonus and you don't need a lot of it, so it will last you a while (maybe a $1 coin is enough for the whole face!! It is not like other masks where you nee...

  7. does what it says


    verified purchaser
    its a good mask if you want something that isnt too harsh, need to use really often to notice any difference
  8. Great staple product


    Does exactly what it’s meant to do! Which is good since it’s such a reliable brand. I’ve owned the same bottle for maybe 5ish months, using it intermittently - once or twice a week at first and now probably much less. It’s quite gentle in texture for an anti blemish mask and you don’t need much product. It also only needs to be left on for short time, so it’s easy to put on before a shower, or how...

  9. Not bad


    Cleans my skin and dries my acne too but it also dries my skin unfortunately. I still use it but not as often.
  10. Just a clay mask


    I bought this because I was using the rest of the Effaclar line. It's good, however it's just a clay mask, nothing particularly special about it. It works well, is a nice texture, good clay mask.
  11. Great for acne prone and sensitive skin

    Mel P

    After using this product, I always notice my skin looks less red and blemishes look flatter and feels very smooth and hydrated. I have sensitive skin and this product has never been a problem for me.
  12. gentle mask


    This mask is really good when my skin is feeling sore and congested. It gives my skin some time to calm and doesn't sting or burn on application. It doesn't seem to draw out the impurities as effectively as some other masks (I also use glam glow) but for me it feels like a combination of purifying and calming, so I really like it.
  13. a bit drying but good


    I found this a bit drying on my skin but it did leave it feeling smooth and fresh. I just don't use it that often so it doesn't dry my skin
  14. Worked well


    I love a mask and going to add this to my list of favourites. It is great for sensitive skin and noticed visible effects after use, would recommend
  15. AMAZING!


    One of the best masks I have used. My skin feels amazing for days afterwards. I use twice a week in conjunction with the 3-step anti acne system and my skin looks better and better everyday. Highly recommend.
  16. Great for sensitive skin


    This is one of the few masks that (1) really purifies your skin, and (2) doesn’t irritate and burn on application - great product!
  17. Great Mudmask for oily skin


    I use this with the Effaclar Anti-Acne gel cleanser. It doesn't have the best smell but it works for acne and oily skin. The smell doesn't bother me as the product does what its meant to do.
  18. 4th time purchasing


    this mask has helped keep my breakouts at bay for over a year now! it says to use for 10 minutes but i found it actually works 100x better if i leave it on for 40 minutes. doesn't irritate at all, i wash it off with a gentle muslin cloth and lukewarm water and my face is super clear after!!! can't recommend enough
  19. did not like it


    it made my skin red and it took forever to wash off
  20. For acne


    I’ve had this for a long time and I use regularly only on congested areas and it seems to help control a break out
  21. horrible


    I found this very drying and the smell was disgusting!
  22. For the blank canvas of your dreams!


    This was one of the first face masks I ever used as an adult and I still use today! I apply it to clean skin in the evenings and let it dry into a clay-feeling cement on my face and neck and wipe it off with a warm damp towel. It leaves my skin with a blank canvas ready for my night time skin care steps. Wonderful product!
  23. not in love


    this was my least favourite la Roche posey product! it smells awful and did nothing but dry out my skin
  24. Great


    This mask helps to control my sebum. I have combination skin type so I usually just apply it on my T zone. It helps to clear my acne and leave my skin clearer. Definitely recommend.
  25. Significantly reduces a breakout


    This mask reduces the severity of my breakouts! It is pretty drying I found so I only use it on certain areas where I have pimples (usually t-zone and chin). Very happy with the results from this, definitely worth the money.
  26. Love


    Such a nice mask. Comfortable while on your face and easy to rinse off. Didn’t dry my face out felt really clean and smooth
  27. Leaves my skin feeling good


    Easy to use and leaves a clean, clear refreshed complexion. Happy with the price point, currently using it once a week and first tube has lasted ages.
  28. Perfect mask for oily skin


    A go to mask for me and my oily skin! It leaves your skin feeling so soft, smooth and clean! Perfect for claiming breakouts, and cleaning out your pores.
  29. Leaves skin smooth and clean!


    My go-to mask is usually Origins Charcoal mask but Mecca have increased the price + decreased the or quantity so it’s become less affordable.

    I’ve just been using a large sample size of this and am adoring it so far, it’s very similar to my Origins mask but more affordable! It has a lovely texture, so easy to apply and leaves my oily skin really clean and clear. I will definitely be b...

  30. Helps with blackheads and large pores


    I have pretty dry/sensitive skin over most of my face except for around my nose, where I have more noticeable pores and blackheads, and I usually get breakouts consistently on my chin. This mask really helped with the large pore, blackheads, and my most of my breakout! I feel like my blackheads and pores have significantly reduced after using this mask, particularly after using pore strips before ...

  31. Great


    This mask has saved my skin so many times during bad breakouts. It's an effective mask without being drying, doesn't have a strong fragrance, and comes in convenient packaging. If you have oily or combination skin, give this a try.
  32. Do yourself a favour


    Get a clay mask! Clay evens out moisture and is smooth on the skin. I use this product often and I love it.
  33. Not good


    This broke my skin out so badly and has a really strong floral smell that I really didn’t like
  34. Great face mask!


    I love this mask! It feels great on the skin, and I feel like it makes a difference to my acne and other imperfections on my face after I use it. Not too drying either! I definitely recommend this face mask
  35. Not suit for dry skin


    I bought it coz I have black head on my nose. I tried on my whole face and found it dry my cheek very quickly. I felt tight and uncomfortable after using. Now I use it only on my nose, it works well and has good value.
  36. Not great for dry skin!


    I bought this to treat my hormonal breakouts and blackheads on my nose. It does feel very nice (texture, on the skin and to remove). However, it dried my skin out, which wasn't great for my already dry skin. I can imagine that this works well for oily skin! I didn't continue to use it for long enough to notice a difference to the hormonal breakouts and blackheads.
  37. Top quality mask


    I bought this mask for my teeanage daughter who has sensitive skin along with acne. She has been on medication to treat acne and this product has been able to be used at the same time with no side effects. It is working wonders on her skin to keep it calm and take away the excess oil. Will definitely continue to purchase.
  38. Fantastic


    This mask really helps keep my oily skin under control and has definitely softened my blackheads. It feels cleansing and isn't too drying. I definitely notice a difference in my skin when I remember to use it a couple of times a week.
  39. Best mask I’ve ever used


    I’ve tried a lot of La Roche Posay products over the past couple of years and feel that there are some definite hits and misses in their range, but this face mask is definitely the biggest hit with me. I have oily, acne prone skin which has become normal-oily in recent years as I have perfected my skincare routine. If I’m having a breakout, I pop this mask on and I know that the next day, my skin ...

  40. Best mask ever


    Ever since using this my skin doesn’t break out anymore! brightens your skin too really well. This is the only mask that I will continue to buy forever
  41. Excellent mask for acne prone skin


    I have been using this mask for 2 weeks and it has made a remarkable difference, with less breakouts. It also doesn't dry out the skin. Most recommended.
  42. great mask


    I have oily skin, so was looking for a product to help reduce that.

    This mask was a great choice. Its clay based, which helps to suck up all the oils deep in my pores. It's not overly drying as its gentle, so my skin isnt over producing oil after I use it.

    It leaves my skin extremely soft and looking clear. It feels firm but plump at the same time. I can see this tube las...

  43. great!


    a good mask for congestion, makes my skin feel much clearer and less breakouts afterwards. only thing is I wish it didn't have fragrance
  44. Good for price


    I picked this mask up as I have some clogged pores on my nose and chin. While this mask helped my skin to feel smooth after use, I dont believe that it has made a difference in the long term or to the size of my pores in those areas. I will continue to use this mask right before events or applying makeup as it does leave the skin feeling soft and very clean.
  45. Calms my irritated face


    This mask is lovely and cooling and soothing on an irritated face. Skin feels calmer and under control after using, which I do about once a week. Feels as good as clay masks that are a lot more expensive. Very impressed with my LaRoche products so far and will continue to reorder as foundational skin care.
  46. So good!


    I only use this about once a month, but I always see such great results every time! I’m not oily after use, and it definitely doesn’t make my skin dry at all. I find it helps with making my pores look smaller too.
  47. good product


    really great for clearing congestion and blocked pores, my skin feels very clean and fresh afterwards, I wish it had no fragrance though!
  48. great mask!


    My skin felt soft and clean after using this, it definitely helped get rid of blackheads! it also didn't dry my skin out at all, I am super happy with this product :)
  49. very nice


    I love this mask! It has helped with my breakouts so much!
    I have been using this twice a week for a couple of months now and my skin appear much brighter and clearer after washing it off.
  50. Miracle mask!!!


    This mask was a true miracle!!!!!! Not even joking, my face has cleared up 10000000x since using it. I use this and then their redness serum for moisturising. Wow, is all I can say. My skin feel smooth, and the acne has halved in size. i used 1-2 times a week, and put it on while I shaved and washed my hair. Soooo nice and cooling, and easy to remove with a towel.

    Love, love, love re...

  51. A great mask for all ages.


    I bought this mask for my three daughters, 23, 19 and 15, and then stole it from them! Granted, it does them more good than me and has been great for break-outs and congestion. I do like to use it occasionally though as it seems to really smooth out even skin that is not experiencing acne-type problems. We've added it to our little basket of favourite masks.
  52. Excellent


    Like pretty much everything La Roche-Posay makes, this works. The Effaclar Sebo-Controlling Mask is a really effective clay mask for clearing the gunk out of your pores and reducing oiliness, without stripping your skin of moisture. I found this a really good and non-irritating product.
  53. Fantastic!


    I have combination skin with dry acne on my cheeks and I get quite oily through my T zone so that's where I use this product. Goes on really lovely and I can feel my skin is much less oily for a few days. Very happy!
  54. Best face mask I’ve used


    This would have to be the best face mask I’ve used ..
    Light weight, doesn’t make my face itchy or feel weird

    Makes my skin feel soft and clean
    Will buy again
  55. Great mask


    I bought this after getting a sample and i love it. I have used the Effeclar range for close to 5 years and this is the perfect addition. I got oily and acne when i was pregnant and i tried other brands but they were too harsh on my skin but this is perfect. I love that it is quick and very effective, with 3 little ones i don't have time to lay around but i can do this in the shower.
  56. Gentle and effective


    I'm a huge fan of the Effaclar range which I use every summer. My experience of the range is that all the products are very effective but gentle, not drying out my skin like many other acne products do. This mask is no difference. It's creamy and not dried on my face after 5 minutes as per instruction. Washed off very easily. My skin stays matte a few days thereafter. As someone who's lazy t...
