The exfoliation 'grains' in this product are really fine and dont feel so abrasive on the skin which is a nice change. I find it works better when I really rub it in and then leave on for 5 minutes. My skin feels so smooth every time. Really has helped keep my pores tight and clean.
Fast drying ocean smelling maskIt's amazing what a good quality mask will do and just like that your blackheads are begone. The mask is a super white opaque mask and a little product is enough to do its job, I like to be generous when slathering on mud masks, at least till you see no skin showing through but for this, I found that there was no need. It is fast drying and has a oceany kind of scent. I find it perfect to use while doing some errands around the house as it dries up in no time and your blackheads are begone. No need to wait half a day for the mask to harden.

such a great maskthe scent is lovely compared to so many other masks!!!! I have an extremely oily t zone and enlargened pores. This product definitely helps my skin produce less oil. I would repurchase if it was slightly cheaper! Would recommend to those with oily skin!
This is a fantastic product! I've had blackheads on my nose for years and this mask completely sucks them out. I have dry sensitive skin and it doesn't irritate or dehydrate my skin. Love it!
love itI received this as a sample recently. I tried it out and I have to say, I love it. This product leaves your skin looking and feeling cleansed. Blackheads are less visible and skin is brighter. I love it
Argh I love this!This is amazing for oily skin.
It left my skin bright and beautiful!
It definitely soaked up some of yummy oils, without over drying.
Definitely ideal for oily skin types, it may be a little drying on dry skin types.
I wish it wasn’t so expensive though!
AmazingReceived as a sample and had to buy it! Such a good exfoliator
Worth every centThis is the most gentle and comfortable exfoliation scrub I have used. The grains are really fine so its easy to rub into the skin and it actually does something and gets right into the pores. I try to use this daily on my chin and nose (and massage in well) and then one a week on my entire face and it leaves it soft and smooth and removes all the dead skin. Also has helped with black and white heads (hasn't removed all but has done a fair job!) I usually follow with a hydrating mask so my skin doesn't dry out.
AmazingI have suffered from clogged pores, particularly on my nose for all my life. I have tried soooo many products and face masks. This was the first product that gave me results! I had actually booked in to have a facial/pore extraction treatment but decided I would give this a go first as it would be much less exxy $$$$$. I bought this, used it once and cancelled the treatment! The only thing I would say, is that if usually regularly (twice a week), it can be drying and so I would recommend making sure you're using a good moisturiser or serum.
very gentle and has a cooling effectthis product is very gentle and has a cooling effect, i love that you can leave it on for just 5 minutes compared to 15-20 mins for other brands, meaning you can save time act as a great quick fix. there are small grains in the formula that help you to circulate blood flow and exfoliate after the 5 mins are up to remove all the congestion that the mask attracts.
Blackheads be gone!This stuff is legit! I first got it as a sample and there was no way I wasn't going to buy it. Nothing has worked for my blackheads, ever, until this stuff! I now only use it on my nose as I don't really need it all over my face. I definitely recommend this if you have persistent blackheads.
Great maskI tried this based on a sample and loved it! It is refreshing and leaves my skin smooth and bright. Love it
Tube lasts such a long timeI originally received this as a sample a few months ago and since purchased the full size. Really nice large tube and since I only use it on my chin and nose (problem areas) the tube has lasted so well. Still over half of the tube left and im a few months in of using it daily. Really fine exfoliation too.
Fine exfoliationThe thing I love about this clay mask is that its got really fine grains in it so you can feel the exfoliation without feeling like you're harshly scratching your face. It dries really quickly so I usually only use it on my T ZONE and massage it in really well and leave it on for about 10 minutes before washing off. Leaves my skin feeling like its had a really deep cleanse and exfoliation every time.
Love it!I first received this product as a sample from Adore Beauty (gotta love the free gifts) - my skin felt and looked so good after just one application, I had to buy the full size and I do not regret it! It lasts a long time, so it is worth the price!
Cleans skin wellThis mask is very good. Cleans the skin well and did not cause any breakouts to my sensitive skin
Argh I love it!I received this as a sample and I absolutely love it!
The way it left my skin feeling / looking was incredible and that was just with one use.
I wish it wasn’t so expensive! :-(
GentleSuch a gentle exfoliator scrub it has the finest little grains in it so it dindnt feel rough or course on my skin. Worked really well around my nose and chin. Ive started using daily at night.
ExfoliatingReally gentle exfoliation. Has fine grains and doesn't feel like its irritating the skin. My skin always feels really smooth and cleansed after. The tube is quite large and lasts for a long time.
Keeps skin feeling cleanHappy with this mask. I only use it on my nose and chin because it dries really quickly and I have to massage it in. Really feels exfoliating on the skin and feels smoother afterwards. I suggest massaging it in really well first in the nose and chin area instead of just applying and leaving. I usually leave in on for 15 minutes and rinse. Great results and less clogged pores.
Definitely works!Oily skin prone to breakouts. I’ve been sceptical reading that mask removes blackheads quickly but because of the reviews decided to try it. It does work! BUT I need to keep using it for blackheads not to come back! You can’t just use it twice, blackheads are gone and you forget about it, I wish! But removing blackheads after 2-4 times of use, definitely!! Keep using at least weekly to keep it that way however!
Great for smoothing skinGreat exfoliation. Really smooth consistency. I only use once a week or it can make my skin irritated a little.
Perfect dual action mask!This mask really does work to pull out impurities and help declog pores. Love the thickness of the mask and the dual action of exfoliation when massaged into the skin while applying and when removing. Definitely recommend this product, well worth the money and lasts a long time.
LuxuriousI've tried alot of clay masks - this one isn't the best but is among my top favourites - it has a slightly 'luxurious' feel to the formula and glides on smoothly and is also quite effective at cleansing the face of impurities - i like to use this the day before an important event!
Good scrubGood deep cleanse for my skin. Worked well especially on my nose and chin. Expensive product but comes in a fairly large tube.
ExfoliatingReceived a sample of this and then purchased the full size. Really great clay exfoliating mask. Very little scent to it and doesnt seem to irritate my skin. Really cleanses deep. Expensive but seems to last a long time. I suggest scrubbing it in/massaging in for best results.
Love it!I received a sample of this and I’m obsessed! I had a small breakout which got so much better after using the mask. And my skin felt amazing! Love the scrub action in the mask. Would 100% purchase!
Freshly cleansed skinI just tried a sample of this. The mask is lovely and thick, the exfoliant particles feel very smooth on the skin, nice and small particles. My face now feels fresh and cleansed. A lovely product. My skin is oily and this product has worked well. I can't comment on the long term usage of this as I only had a small sample.
Holy grailUnlike a lot of clay masks that just sit on the skin and do nothing, this one actually pulls all the impurities out of your skin to leave it super smooth and clean. I've always had a problem with bad blackheads on my nose and have always been very self-conscious about it. However, after incorporating this into my routine my blackheads have nearly disappeared and is no longer visible. My nose is now super smooth and clear. Unbelievable!
The best clay mask!I usually dont like clay masks (the feeling on my face) this one is really gentle and smooth and doesn't irritate my skin. I massage it in really well and my skin is visibly clearer after!
Love itSuch a nice product, it’s a scrub and a mask all in one. Thoroughly cleanses great.
RESULTSOriginally received a sample of this and have now purchased. I had noticeable results after the second use - really exfoliating and removes all the dirt and black heads. The tube it comes in is quite big too which is great.
Good for combination to oily skinI have combination to oily skin. I like this product as it did not worsen my oiliness. However I find that it is challenging to apply this product without hurting your skin as it can be quite dry and gritty if you did not squeeze enough (huge) amount of it onto your hand before applying to your face, as it dries out very fast. At the beginning when I first use it, I only squeezed a small amount and applied onto my face, I think I broke my skin which led to a small breakout of acne. The following occasions I use larger amount without issues. That also means this tube is not going to last too long. I do not find it particularly 'draws out' black or white heads. They are still there even immediately after usage.
Favourite clay maskThis is definitely my favourite clay mask so far. I received a sample of this mask and after finishing my Felix sample, I had to purchase the full size one. It’s made my skin so clear and cleans my pores out completely. Love it
WorksI was a little skeptical of this at first because so many products claim to remove all the impurities and black heads. This is an amazing clay exfoliate and actually works. I rubbed this into my nose and chin areas morning and night for 3-4 days and the results were so good my skin was so clear and clean and all black heads were just gone. Since purchase another tube to have as back up. Amazing.
100% YES!I received this as a sample and since have since purchased 2 of them! It actually does what it says and I noticed after just a few days of using this morning and night all my blackheads were removed and skin was clearer.
noticeable results within first appplicationWith this product came immediate changes to my skin. I noticed after the first application, much smoother and softer skin. Will highly recommend this for people with combination skin like mine
No more squeezingAfter squeezing blackheads for years and watching more and more come back, Im glad I have FINALLY FOUND SOMETHING THAT ACTUALLY WORKS. It feels good, applies easy and taking it off makes your skin look clearer than it was when you were born. I love this product and have it ready to go for xmas presents this year , its worth the purchase
worked wondersi have a dry skin and i do have black and white heads. i tried this mask as a sample. there are a very few masks that have benefited my skin but this is definitely going to one of them. it was amazing. i clearly saw the results and i highly recommend it. it is not in stock at the moment on adore beauty but i would really want it to be back in stock ASAP :)
ACTUALLY removed my blackheadsI got this originally as a sample in one of my past orders and just repurchased again. I have spent lots of money in the past on high-end masks promising to remove blackheads and wound up disappointed. This mask actually does remove black heads. My skin was left feeling so soft. I have normal/combination fair skin. Would recommend.
Absolute game changer, HGThis is my new holy grail, and I will never give this up! Received as a sample, and was stunned with the results. I have struggled with congestion, blackheads and huge pores since I was a teen, and I'm almost 30. I have tried absolutely EVERYTHING, the BHA and clay mask method, various other clay masks, you name it. This works as a scrub and a mask, only need 10 minutes max, doesnt dry out my skin or leave it tight, the results work immediately and also seem to last long term. A little goes a long way, you can focus on just the problem areas, I cant seem to find fault with this product. Wouldn't use anything else, and will keep buying this forever. Only wish I'd gotten onto it sooner.
So happy with purchaseReceived a sample size of this with an order recently and have now purchased! Only the smallest amount is needed - massage into your chin/nose or where ever you get blackheads/congestion and after about two days of using it (morning and night) my pores were so clear it was actually amazing. I haven't seen a product work this well before. Love!
Love this maskI love products that have multiple functions to minimise steps in my routine and this one does an exceptional job. I have had a blackhead that keeps re-appearing in the same spot and have had facials and used a lot of different masks and cleansers over the past 3 years to try to get rid of it. After using this mask, it just popped out and it hasn't come back since so I am thrilled with the results. My skin is a bit picky, but I haven't had any problems or bad reactions to this product. The formula isn't too drying even if I accidentally leave it on for too long. I would definitely repurchase.
Amazing productReceived this as a sample and purchased almost immediately after trying. Really does work and I noticed after the first 2-3 washes all the dirt etc in my pores was removed. Be sure to really massage it into the problem areas and leave on for 5-10 minutes. Cant wait to receive the full size now!
AMAZING!Received a free sample of this. Had enough to use 2 times! I don’t have the biggest pores but even after the first try my pores were noticeably cleaner and smoother. Almost feels like it just sucks out all the dirt and grime from your pores! I like that there’s a bit of an exfoliant in it that you can use to exfoliate your skin as you wash it off. I’m not usually a using the sample I ordered a tube for myself!

Removes dirt/blackheadsI have to admit I laughed when I first received a sample of this and seen that it said it clears all blackheads in 2 uses because SO many products say that and never actually work. I was completely shocked with how amazing it was after 2-3 uses all the dirt/blackheads were pretty much gone on my nose and chin! I only had to use the tiniest amount of product each time too (and massage it in a little). I've since purchased!
Does what it says!!I received this as a sample with an order and at first I thought this is just another “pore minimising, blackhead removing” product that doesn’t work. Wrong! After the second use I went on and ordered it. I noticed a difference in the size of my pores on my nose after two uses and it had removed all the dirt and blackheads. 100% recommend!
Works!Received this as a sample. Really works. After two uses my pores were so cleansed and smaller! 100% will be purchasing.
WowThis is a mask and scrub all in one, something I have never used before. My skin is exfoliated, clean and my pores are minimised.
So, So GoodI received a sample of this with another Adore order. I immediately bought a tube after giving it a go. I have used a LOT of clay masks, but nothing as good as this. It minimised my pores after one go, beautifully exfoliates, and smells divine. Definitely would recommend.
NiceI received this mask as a sample, and just used it in problem blocked pore areas. Have just purchased a tube, as i find it does a wonderful job of cleaning skin without drying out too much.
Awesome product!This product would have to be one of the best exfoliators I have used.
It is very gritty, so it actually feels like you are exfoliating away dead skin. Once used as a scrub you leave it on for a few minutes as a mask and then reactivate it into a scrub with a little bit of water. It definitely leaves my skin feeling smooth, clean and supple. I love that it is basically a 2-in-1 product - saves time.
Would definitely recommend and will repurchase.
Seems promisingI've only used this 3 times so can't say it's fixed my pores but I think it has shrunk them. Promising so far.
Works wellI was looking for something to help with the pores on my nose between nose strips. This seems to do the trick. Everyone's chemistry is different- what works for some, may not work for others. So, this seems to clear out my pores, I find I also have terribly dry/peeling skin around my nose the next morning. I also use the matching moisturizer twice a day (helps the dry skin areas). So long as it's helping clear out the pores, I'll keep using it.
Very effectiveI love this product because it effectively deals with both of my current skin concerns - my face gets dry and flaky from the cold weather but also gets pimples particularly after a long day of wearing makeup. This clay mask does a nice job of tackling the spots, then the exfoliating action buffs the flaky skin away. It leaves my skin feeling very clean and refreshed. Would highly recommend!
Love this!I struggle to find skincare that works for my skin. After reading the reviews I thought I’d give this a go.
I put this on in the morning rather than night, my skin was nice and soft and very clear after this. Definitely worth the money!
A little bit goes a long way, so worth the money spent.
ExcellentThis was a great product. It cleaned by pores and blackhead/whiteheads and left my skin clear. The pore size was unchanged but my skin was definitely clearer. Though I would use it for targeted areas and not the full face. It dries out the cheeks which dont really need that exfoliation.
Great for large pores and blackheadsThis mask is fantastic. It smells great and make your skin feel like heaven. A lot of product in a tube so well worth the price. I have blackheads and large pores and I find this mask helps a lot
WOWI received this as a sample and read the reviews before I used it and was so excited. I have oily and dry skin and big pores so Im forever looking for a product that just works. Just alone from the sample my skin was like YESSS this is what we have been waiting for. I bought the full size one straight away. Its quite expensive but after using the sample and being so happy with it I look forward to using it. Its perfect for me on every level and I think I have found my face scrub/mask that I will use for the rest of my life!
It worth to buyIt refresh my skin, but dry very quickly. It's good for cleaning your pore. Comparing with the price, definitely will buy it again
Perfect combo of scrub and mask!I don't usually have great things to say about product samples but Adore Beauty sends out some awesome, quality ones that are so worth giving a go and I'm glad I did because this exfoliating clay mask is a winner in my skincare routine!
I've lived with blackheads since puberty hit and have tried many face scrubs in the past 20 over years, none of which come close to Philosophy's Purity Made Simple Exfoliating Clay Mask. I'm loving that it combines the benefits of an exfoliant and mask, all in one. My skintype is combination - really dry and peeling in some areas with an oilier t-zone, clogged and enlarge pores (the killer combo, if you ask me!), so using this twice a week has really helped my skin. It doesn't miraculously extract all blackheads in one use, but I find that for me it brings them up to the surface which makes it easier to remove them and maintain week after week with this product. I also love being able to gently scrub the product on my skin first, to smoothen out and remove dead skin cells, then leave it on for a few minutes so the mask can do its work.
There's a very slight citrus scent that I find refreshing and pleasant especially after removing the mask to reveal smooth and silky skin. There was another brand of exfoliating clay mask I wanted to try but this sample may have changed my mind. The tiny tube has lasted me more than 2 weeks now (I even got the husband to try it out), so a little does go a long way! I've never tested any Philosophy products before so I'm curious to try more after such a brilliant first impression with this sample.
Look no further if you're on the hunt for a gentle and effective scrub that's easy and also doubles up as a mask.
WOW my skin has changedOMG! If you have blackheads, you need this is your life right now. I don't know how it does it but it clears your blackheads, for me it took a week to be cleared. I used it twice in one week and wowza my skin has cleared up of blackheads. I leave this on for a full 10 min to get maximum results then add a little warm water and massage in for another 30 seconds then rinse off with warm water. My skin is now soft and smooth and black head free. Note- this doesn't get rid of pimples, just blackheads. but girl... you only need a pea size amount for your whole face, so this tube will go a long way. Well worth the investment.
I actually cried after my first useHello amazing silky smooth skin, it's been a long while and a costly adventure but your back finally.
I only have philosophy to thank, I don't need to say any more than you won't try anything else after trying this product.
Better Than I Expected!This product is simply amazing! I use it twice a week as recommended, and it makes my face feel smooth, clear and clean. It claims to unclog pores and remove blackheads, although this hasn't really been the case for me - I think because my pores and blackheads are too deeply clogged, but I genuinely believe it would work in that manner for those with mildly blocked pores. Regardless, I still gave this 5 stars as it is the best mask I have ever used and makes my skin feel amazing! I love using it on a sleep Sunday evening after a weekend of makeup and exposure to more skin pollution and invisible nasties.
Pretty goodThis does seem to clear out a lot of pores, and also exfoliates nicely. I tend to do it only in the areas that I get blackheads like nose and chin, otherwise it can be slightly drying. Perfect to use once a week or to refresh the skin before an event.
Favourite mask everI have oily/combo skin and blackheads and congestion are my number one complaint. This is the best mask I have ever used for this problem. Does it get rid of blackheads after one use? Not quite. Really stubborn blackheads (for me that's nose and chin) will stick around, but they are far less noticeable. My skin feels clean and tight but this mask is in no way drying. I love it! Bit expensive but worth it considering all the money I've spent on cheaper junk in the past trying to get rid of my pesky blackheads!
Yep, it WORKS!I was needing a quick fix for bumpy red blemished skin around chin & my mouth area. I have middle-age combination skin, prone to breakouts.
This product DID deliver & rid me of my bumps!
I applied it only to my T-Zone, as i was concerned not too dry out my cheeks even further.
Lovely texture, as you apply it, it stays “put”, so you don’t need to cake it on at all.
I made sure to lightly massage it around the nose area too. 15 mins later Blackheads & blemishes were either gone entirely or really diminished. Waited 3 days & did it again, my skin was clear of blemishes. Will use twice a week from now on to keep my skin clear. Awesome product, will definitely repurchase.
WOWZA! This stuff really cleans and invigorates your skin ready for moisturiser & serumsI received this product as a free sample and I am so impressed. I have just put it on -it's my second use, before my evening shower. I think I'll get three uses out of the sample, which is good compared to some samples.
I immediately feel it start to tighten and it's refreshing. It has little micro-granules in it, which assists in exfoliating. You just jump in the shower or wash your face in the sink after 5-10 minutes or when the clay has completely dried, then wet your hands and rub the mask gently in circular motions before washing your face clean with warm water. To intensify the effect of the product, don't wash it completely off, but rather wet your hands slightly more and lather a little bit more energetically and perform a second massage. This can be used twice a week to thoroughly cleanse your skin and pores, reduce blackheads and remove dead skin cells.
It is not recommended to use daily, as exfoliants can be harsh and also cause more blemishes if you finely cut the layers of your delicate skin, causing more bacteria.
This really works!
Amazing!Received this product as a sample and I'm dreading the day I run out, definitely going to need to invest in a full size tube! The combination of a purifying mask and exfoliant in one is genius! I use it just on my T zone, exfoliate when applying, leave for 10 minutes, then exfoliate again lightly when removing and my skin looks so good! It's definitely reduced my balckheads, this product is a winner!
Great for my skinThis is so good for my skin. I always feel fresh and clean after I use this mask. Love using this.
Makes Blackheads Disappear!I received a generous sample of this off Philosophy not too long ago.
My first use I made the mistake of applying this to my whole face-do not do that if you have dry skin or sensitive skin!!!
I personally found it best to apply this thin white paste with its fine exfoliating grains over just my tzone areas,focusing mostly on my nose where I was most prone to blackheads and congestion.
You can feel this amazing mask drawing out impurities and oil as it is left to dry. After 15 minutes or so it has set to a hard tight texture yet it isn't too harsh or irritating even for my sensitive skin. It feels like it is doing good!
Once rinsed off,skin is noticably smoother and shinier looking and even after one use I noticed a visible improvement in my blackheads on my nose-half seemed to have vanished altogether! And they were stubborn deep set ones I had had for years!
I'm honestly quite impressed after a few uses of this and will definitely look into buying a full size soon.
Microdermabrasion in a bottleI received this as a sample and will be purchasing! I used a couple of times a week, and there is a noticeable difference in the brightness of my skin. The exfoliation helped with congestion.
So clarifyingThis is a clay mask that I use once a week.
It's a white cream with small particles in it like a scrub.
It smells like the other Purity products- citrusy- which is a nice scent.
It spreads out nicely over the face.
After 5-10 mins it has dried and my face feels tight.
I add some water to my hands and massage the mask which further exfoliates my skin.
It's really easy to wash off and doesn't leave a residue.
My face immediately looks so clear and bright.
It definitely helps it to be soft smooth.
There is absolutely no tingling or burning like other masks that are this effective.
I highly recommend this!
Clean pores for days!I am so impressed with the new Purity Made Simple Pore Extractor Exfoliating Clay Mask from philosophy. It is so simple and quick to use and the results are instantaneous! As with any clay mask there is a tightening effect as it dries and I find that compared to other clay masks it dries very quickly. Once applied it dries up white in colour and all you need to do is leave it on for 5-10 minutes and then rinse off with warm water. My skin looks and feels very clean and smooth after I use. My pores look smaller and the blackheads around my nose are hardly visible at all!
Cloud nine of exfoliating masksI gave up hope a long time ago when it came to ridding all blackheads with one product and it being easy.
I finally found hope again, I was sent a small sample of this magical bliss and within 10 minutes I had made my first purchase.
ONE AND ONLY ONE application and exfoliation removed every single little blackhead and wow I have not once in my life felt my skin so soft.
AMAZING YOU won't BE DISAPPOINTED.
10/10 - you NEED this. NOW!This is my HOLY GRAIL clay mask. I'll start off by saying I have dry, sensitive skin, so I naturally don't gravitate towards clay masks. However, my nose is filled with stubborn blackheads that just won't budge no matter how many charcoal masks or pore strips I use. From the first time I used Philosophy's clay mask, my blackheads had practically reduced to almost nothing, and my pores were so much smaller and tightened. I was gobsmacked. My skin was left feeling soft, smooth and tightened. Now days later my skin still feels and looks so clean. The mask dries very quickly and you can wash it off within 15 minutes. The exfoliating beads are small and gentle but really buff away dead skin! I absolutely adore this mask and it's such a treat on my pamper days. I will continue to repurchase and use it weekly. It does wonders for my blackheads that no other product has been able to do. It's like magic!
