        I am a skin-type 2, but my t-zone is exceptionally oily, with dry cheeks. This causes my pores to be noticeably large on my nose, inner cheeks, chin, and the middle of my forehead. I use the entire 3-Step + Sonic Brush, 7-Day Scrub, and the Rinse-Off Foaming Cleanser religiously. After cleansing and clarifying my skin, the dark oil can still be seen deeper into the large pores. I know this mask worked because that dark oil went away once I rinsed it off! I've been waiting for a good mask to help control oil in my t-zone. Good job Clinique!
        I gave it only 4 stars, because I had a difficult time distributing an even layer. Some areas would be darker grey and others would be colorless and everything in between. Perhaps its operator error?

        I use this as an extra cleanser 3 times a week. At first I thought this many times was a lot for a mask, however, as with other clinique facial products I do not feel it is strong enough and do understand what it is supposed to do. I am combination oily- many counters from different stores have told me I am a 3 or 4, however my facialists and my dermatologists have told me that my acne bumps are hormonal and my skin is actually dry in many places and that I am closer to dry in dry/ combination oily and not to listedn to what they tell me at counters. be careful with the numbering assessments clinique uses and some things might work for you for a 2 type while others may work for a 3.

        Now regarding this mask, I have many small visible pores and this basically was like an extra cleanser for me. I do not feel it reduced pore size or tightened me much. Clinique products tend to smooth my skin but that is about it. The sebum in your pores will not be cleaned out unless you get a facial and someone cleans them out!

        I already tried the city scrub mask after this, thinking it would be stronger feeling but again, I don't feel it did more than my cleanser can do just used a few times more after cleansing. I also do not see it online but the scrubs in the scrub mask are not that strong for exfoliating unless you sit there massaging your face for over half an hour, you do not get real deep exfoliation. you have to try hard. Do I feel like these masks have cleaned my skin? Yes, but not that deep or crazy.

        Makes my face feel good!

        By 

        from Oklahoma City OK

        Comments about Clinique Pore Refining Charcoal Mask:

        My face always feels better after using this. I have to admit I'm bad about taking care of me juggling everything and everyone else. So when I do pamper myself a bit this always makes my face feel better afterwards! One word of advice.... never put between the nostrils! Made that mistake just once! :)

        This is a very good product from clinique. My husband and I used this product and I've already noticed the difference. I will definitely buy it again!

        My favourite mask

        By 

        from Ontario, Canada

        Comments about Clinique Pore Refining Charcoal Mask:

        I've tried a few charcoal masks and nothing compares to Clinique! My face feels so clean and smooth after using this 1-2 times a week. I follow-up with the dramatically different moisturizing gel. It feels like a spa day for my face.

        Pore Minimized

        By 

        from USA

        Comments about Clinique Pore Refining Charcoal Mask:

        Yes my pores were minimized, however the level of cleaning power does not match with normal clay mask. When it mask dries up, it becomes a thin layer of plastic. It doesn't give you the outlook of city block mask.

        Great mask for when you have breakouts

        By 

        from Ontario, Canada

        Comments about Clinique Pore Refining Charcoal Mask:

        This is my go-to mask for when breakouts appear. I also use it during hot, humid months when you feel like your pores need some extra cleaning. I love how smooth my face feels after and how it helps calm down any breakouts I have. To save time, I often use it while I'm in the shower - it is also less messy that way too!

        I received a sample of this product, and after just one use I already saw changes. I purchased the product and now use it weekly. I see changes in my pores and the frequency of my breakouts. Give it a try, you won't regret it!

        Excellent for Multiple-Concern Skin

        By 

        from California

        Comments about Clinique Pore Refining Charcoal Mask:

        This mask is the best!
        As I'm getting older, my skin is getting clearer (thank goodness!), but I do still break out some and my giant pores still stare at me in the mirror, daring me to do something about them. So I give them the ol' Clinique charcoal pore mask treatment and they behave themselves! It's great!
        I have a tendency for redness as well as unruly pores, so it's important that I use a product that is gentle enough it won't cause redness or irritation like some of the peel off or other charcoal products out there. This one is incredibly gentle, yet very effective!
        After I gently remove it, my skin feels so fresh and soft and looks tons better! It also helps my makeup go on more smoothly, which means I use less product, which both looks better and saves money!
        Just, ya know, beware: it goes on black (because, duh, charcoal) and every time my husband sees me using it, he teases me mercilessly. Totally worth it, though, for the benefits! :)
