For daytime, always follow with a broad-spectrum sunscreen rated SPF 30 or greater.
Thank you for submitting your review! It will be reviewed by our staff before it is posted.I had used clay masks before this one and didnt like them they dried my oily skin out too much, which resulted in more breakouts.
Bought this as I decided to try again being it was a PC product and I'm at war with my blackheads. This did remove my blackheads but not on the 1st application. I had to use a nose strip, and then the next day use the mask. And my blackheads are not as bad, they take longer to come back and there isn't as many as before. But I do have to use this in combination with a nose strip. This mask didn't dry my skin out and it does help during my period when I'm prone to breaking out.
Customer Care: Hi Alaina, thanks for your nice review of our Clear Purifying Clay Mask. This is a great addition into a routine to address acne-prone skin, redness, and blackheads. If you find you're still struggling I recommend considering adding in a BHA exfoliant, such as our Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant. If you'd like some personalized advice, feel free to contact one of our skincare experts! Kind regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer CareApplies and sets really well on the skin. I use once a week after cleansing as an extra boost for my skin. It makes it feel clean and not oily at all, and my toner, exfoliant and moisturiser feel great when I apply them after I’ve cleaned it off. It does stay on very well so I do need a flannel and not just water to remove all of it. I am definitely very happy with this product and will keep using regularly.
Customer Care: Hi Rebekah, thank you for your review. Our Clear Purifying Clay Mask is perfect for mattifying oily or acne-prone skin. It's great that you've found the perfect way to incorporate it into your routine! Warm regards, Marissa - Paula's Choice Customer Care Team.Absolutely love this product. So creamy and doesn’t dry my skin out although I have normal to dry skin. I had a breakout and have been using this product everyday for the last four weeks... my breakouts have now stopped but I did purchased quiet a-few Paula Choice products to solve my problem. I will be switching my facial routine from breakout routine to scar treatment now. I trust my skin will go back to normal all thanks to Paula choice - Thank you
Customer care: We are happy to hear the Clear Purifying Clay Mask helped to control your breakouts! To help with post breakout scarring you could try the Clear Treatment. Please contact us if you would like advice on your new routine. Kind regards, AdeleReally great face mask, can see results about 2 days after using it. A little bit drying so need to make sure to use a heavy moisturiser afterwards and make sure it doesn’t stay on the skin while dry for too long.Really love Paula’s Choice products. Not only are the products really great, the instructions and directions are also really helpful for someone who doesn’t know much about skin. I now feel a bit more clued up and know which order I need to apply the products for best results. I’m definitely seeing results and softer smoother skin. Thumbs up.I suffer from almost constant hormonal breakouts and have found the 2% bha liquid exfoliant to have changed my skin, I do however still get breakouts every now and then. That's where this product comes in, I love this clay mask! It is so easy to use (doesn't have that super dry cracked feeling on your face like other clay masks!) and easy to wash off! I also love using this on spots overnight and it does a great job of drying out the spot and reducing the redness. This is an absolute skin saviour and I hope it's never discontinued!I am prone to occasional breakouts. I used this in my skin care routine before I went to bed, I woke up the next day and it had reduced the size and redness of my breakout significantly. I highly recommend.Draws out all the excess oil and leaves my skin feeling fresh and clearer. I love that it only needs 10 minutes to dry, nice and quick to add into my routine 3 times a week.
What are the key ingredients?
Triple clay blend
This blend of three clays absorbs excess oil on the skin's surface and in the pores. This helps clear breakouts and prevent new spots.
This plant extract calms skin and reduces redness after inflammation.
Green Tea Extract
Possesses potent antioxidant and skin-soothing properties and has impressive research in terms of its many benefits for skin, including anti-ageing properties.

What is the difference between the Clear Purifying Clay Mask and the Skin Balancing Oil-Absorbing Mask?
The Clear Purifying Mask absorbs excess oil a little better than the Skin Balancing Mask, because it contains three different clays and a mineral starch mixture. The Clear Mask is specially formulated for the specific needs of acne-prone skin. This mask helps prevent breakouts and soothes redness. The Skin Balancing Mask is primarily formulated to control oily skin and reduce the visibility of enlarged pores. Both masks are easy to rinse off and do not dry out the skin.
What is the use of the 0.5% salicylic acid (BHA) in the Clear Purifying Clay Mask?
The percentage of salicylic acid (0.5%) in this mask ensures that other ingredients can penetrate deeper into the pores, making them even more effective. A low concentration of salicylic acid slightly exfoliates the skin, but this cannot be compared to our leave-on exfoliants with a higher concentration of 1 to 2%.
Can I leave the Clear Purifying Clay Mask on overnight?
The Clear Purifying Mask works effectively within 10 minutes and is not a leave-on mask. During that time, the maximum effect is achieved without drying the skin. All clay masks can dry out the skin if they have been left on for too long. For this product, we recommend rinsing off with lukewarm water after 10 minutes.
