Most Helpful Positive

It works!

Mandy

I have been using this product once a week for a month. It is a little zingy after applying it on the face. I fount it effective. The face feels brighter after usage.

Refined pores

Cha

I bought this to bust blackheads, and I'm hoping with time this will be the case. For now, with once a week use, it has minimised pores and left me feeling fresh and clean. I like that I can use this on target areas more frequently and so far the bottle has lasted well.
I have not had any irritation from using this masque. Nice one T.O!

  2. Formula was not what I expected but results are good

    Helen

    The formula is a lot thicker and grittier than I expected but the results were good. I used it at night after cleansing and it left my skin feeling clean but not dried out after. The next morning my skin still felt nice.
  3. My go to mask

    Emma

    There is a big trend for sheet masks recently. However if u have oily skin these are not the best to use. I like the ordinary mask as the salicylic acid helps to clear out pores and minimise breakouts. I use this twice a week.
  4. Smoothed Texture

    el3na

    I am a little disappointment in this product, I have been using it once a week as a deep clean mask along with my other skincare (mostly from the Ordinary), product advises will deep clean pores but I can only see my complexion smoothed out immediately after washing it off, my black heads and breakouts don't seem to be affected by this. I might have to give it more time to work but so far can't se...

  5. Squeaky clean

    Lily

    This masque makes you LOOK like you have new skin almost instantly. Every time I use it I forget how much I love it - it makes all your blemishes look smaller and less inflamed, and gives the rest of your face a lovely glow! Would highly recommend
  6. My favourite mask ever

    Cristina Z.

    I'm in love with this mask. I use it twice a week in the pm, and wake up with fresh radiant clear skin.
  7. Pleasantly surprised with the results

    Cheryl

    I bought this as a trial because isn’t read that salicylic acid is gentler on the skin than glycolic acid & does a better job of diminishing blackheads...I have to say I agree & I’m impressed with the results! I also use Alpha Gold but I think I prefer this. The pores around my nose are definitely clearer & smaller & my skin just feels really well exfoliated within being stripped. Will definitely ...

  8. Deep cleansing

    Lisa

    I really enjoy using this product. I apply the mask once a week for deep cleansing or my enlarged pores. It is easy to apply and rinse off. The after effects are glowing clean skin.

  10. Good mask for sensitive skin

    Bec

    Good mask, I use it 2-3 times a week on my problem areas (t-zone + chin). My skin always feels really clean after wards, but I have noticed it doesn’t draw out all blackheads. Needs to be used consistently to see improvement. I like this product, it’s not as drying as some clay masks can be and I have repurchased this. I think going into summer it will be my go to mask to help combat oily summer s...

  11. Enjoyed by Teen Model

    Teen Model

    My 14 yr old daughter is a model and needs to keep her skin looking really nice. Like most teens, she gets breakouts and blemishes. She's just tried this for the first time and enjoyed using it. She said it's easy to apply and she liked the tingling sensation. (She gave her Dad a good fright when she walked into the family room with it on!!) She couldn't peel it off as she put on a thin layer, so ...

  12. Lovely!

    Sarah

    This product really gives a deep clean.

    The texture is a little too rough for my liking so I have to be careful of how much pressure I use when applying it.
  13. An affordable way to gently exfoliate skin

    Freya

    An affordable way to gently exfoliate the skin, I use this about once a week, I find if I use it more frequently it irritates my skin. I always patch test with any Salicylic products as I've reacted badly to some salicylic serums in the past. I was strangely fine with this one though.
  14. Great product but not right for my teenage daughter.

    Julia

    I bought this product for my acne prone teenage daughter. Yesterday was the third time she tried it over a 3 week period (once a week) and as much as we both wanted it to be the product for her, it wasn't. After each try, her skin looked incredibly dewy and her spots seemed to have calmed down. The next day though, her skin erupted in a break out. Unfortunate but it is just a case of the prod...

  15. Good in small amounts

    JV

    Used a few times, and I love how it makes my face feel.
    I do have sensitive skin so if I use it more then once a week I get too dry and itchy.
    But sticking to once a week I have seen a difference in my acne spots.

  17. Great to target break outs!

    Kitty

    I've been using this mask for a couple of months now. It's fantastic to target break outs. I've been using it just on my acne prone areas because it can be a bit drying. The biggest downside it you can't use it too frequently so I'm often stuck between applications with breakouts I'm struggling to control.
  18. A gentle mask for acne prone skin

    Briyonce

    I really like this mask. You only have to leave it on for 10 min and it doesnt dry too 'tight' on your skin. I do hate that it is black though. I still prefer he Ordinary's salicylic acid serum but as that doesnt seem to be in stock this is a great alternative. It leaves my skin feeling fresh and smooth and it is very gentle.
  19. Great mask!

    Tanja

    This is an amazing mask! I love The Ordinary's salicylic acid serum and this mask is almost just as good. It tends to bring out the breakouts which were under the skin, so for a day or so it sucks. However, its really a clarifying and the breakouts clear super quickly. My favourite part is the little tiny bit of physical exfoliation you get when you remove it. Its like a little powder-y gritt-y. ...

  20. Great

    Sarah

    This product has helped with decongesting my skin and my pores look better and my blackheads are much less. Amazing product
  21. Absolutely love the way this makes my oily skin feel

    Dora

    I've been using this mask for over a month, as per directions (so, twice a week). It's effective, my skin feels extremely cleansed after washing off the mask. I have visible, enlarged pores around my T-zone and this mask seems to penetrate deep into my skin and unclog my pores. Haven't had any break outs since, and my blackhead situation seems under control. Will continue using it.
  22. Nothing amazing

    Brooke

    I brought this mask hoping it will help with my ache prone skin. I’ve used it twice a week for 2 weeks now and It hasn’t made my skin worse but not any better. I will finish the bottle and see if there are any changes.
  23. Amazing!!!

    Kiki

    Wow! I really didn’t expect much from this mask, but it’s left my skin feeling amazing after washing it off. Your skin feels a little tingly afterwards but so soft and pores look clean and smaller. You don’t need to dedicate too much time to it, only 10 minutes max and it washes off easily enough. The only issue I have is that it comes in such a small tube, I hope they eventually supersize this on...

  24. Great

    Sarah

    This is so affordable and it has helped my pores a lot. My oily skin is also left feeling fresh, clean and refreshed after
  25. Amazing!

    Dana

    I am a huge fan of this brand, and this masque is no exception. Although it tingled a bit and I was a little bit red when I rinsed it off, after applying some moisturiser my skin was absolutely glowing! It was even better in the morning - definitely clearer. Highly recommended!
  26. Good Starter Acid Mask

    kingboo

    This mask is just nice. It isn’t too powerful, so it would be ideal for people who’re new to acid masks.
    But for people who have used stronger acids, I don’t think this has much benefit.
  27. Great and affordable

    Paris

    Love this mask; it tingles a little bit which I don't mind and it seems to unclog my pores and leave my skin glowing. I use this twice a week and it's working wonders for me. Salicylic Acid really is an amazing acid.
  28. Really does work

    Anna

    I can actually notice a difference immediately after using this mask, it has become my new favourite product from The Ordinary. My skin feels so clean and fresh after using it and it has really helped to clear out the pores on my nose and chin that other masks double the price haven't.
  29. Good

    Abbey

    This is a good product. I find it helps a lot with shrinking my pores and reducing the appearance of blemishes
  30. Works a treat for pores

    Kate

    I have been using this product since it came out - and it makes a noticeable difference to my skin. I have very large pores, which nothing else has seemed to make a substantial difference with, and this is working wonders. I'm using it in combination with The Ordinary Niacinamide and a clay mask to help, but the mask has made the most significant impact. It does smell slightly chemical, and I'm...

    I love this mask and I use it during times when I can just sense my skin needs a pick me up and deep clean. Messy to put on and off but it’s worth it! Highly recommend!
  33. Well priced and works!

    C

    This is an amazing mask! Love all the ordinary products as they are such high quality products for such a cheap price! This mask really clears and refreshes my skin leaving it bright and healthy
  34. Such clean skin!

    Katrina

    I really like this mask! It tingles a bit while it’s on, but my moderately sensitive skin recovered quickly. My face was glowing and shiny clean after using this. Love it.
  35. Cleansing

    B

    I like the ordinary’s simple, slim and compact packaging, great for small bathrooms where storage is an issue. When I bought this product I didn’t realise it was for blemish prone skin, I was looking for a clay deep cleanse but liked the idea of Salyclic acid. The product is black, so messy to put on and clean off, black splashed everywhere. The mask is a little grainy, dries quickly, tingles on y...

    Leaves skin lighter and brighter. In the application it has a refreshing sensation and I felt dry, but the next day the aspect was wonderful.

    Soooo glad this exists, works well for me during those hormonal breakouts, fantastic produce!
  38. Works to clear pores and skin

    Katie

    As soon as I saw The Ordinary had released this, I bought it straight away. As someone with generally easy going skin, my main problem is my pore size, and I find that there aren't many products that help with their appearance. I saw great effects with this product after use. You need to work quickly as soon as it comes out of the tube, as it turns to a somewhat grainy consistency quite quickly...
