I’ve had this mask for quite a while and used it more times than I can count, yet still I cannot give it a particularly high rating. It’s not that it doesn’t work, necessarily.. it’s that it’s doesn’t work frequently. In other words, even though I always try to zap my breakouts with this mask first, I only see results about a quarter of the time. And when I do, it’s typically no more effective than your typical drug store brand clay mask.

I have the Murad acne facial cleanser and i like it pretty good. I have problem skin and i have definitely seen a difference in breakouts and overall texture since I’ve been using this product. I have to be sure to hydrate a little more than usual with it though or my face will get really dry. Overall i like it better than any other product I’ve purchased, and it’s not a bad price.

It has a strong smell but feel this mask works at clearing up my skin. Use atleast 1-2 times a week for visible improvement. My aesthetician recommended it to me!

I been using this product for half a year now and i have nothing bad to say about it. It helps me maintain my acne on my face. After i use this product i use a pore  minimizer to help my pores stay closed. For it being $9 is pretty good 👍. I would recommend this to friends and family who need help with acne on their face

I used this clarifying mask a few weeks after having a professional facial done and I was pretty impressed with the results. My skin appeared radiant with an even tone. I would highly recommend this to anyone who struggles with acne and uneven skin tone.

Murad's clarifying acne clearing set was what initially ended my ten year battle with adult acne. I now keep the cleanser, serum, mask and acne spot treatment on hand for those once a month breakouts. As soon as I start to feel a blemish coming on, I get out the murad. The mask is just like a pure clay mask and you can use it as a mask on your whole face or just t-zone and also dab it on your pimple for overnight treatment. It's quick and effective and really works!!!

This is a pretty good product for those who have very acne prone skin. This did give me a bit of a cooling effect. I wouldn’t recommend to those with extremely sensitive and dry skin. This may dry out your skin if you use this too much. I would recommend once a week.

For the longest time I couldn’t find a face wash that wasn’t drying and helped with my acne.... I finally found this and i’m in love with it. Give it a try ask Sephora for a sample you honestly don’t need a lot. Give it a week and you’ll see amazing results

This is my favorite acne fighting mask. It is expensive, but it goes a long way. I am a big fan of clay masks and this is no exception. It draws our impurities and leaves my skin feeling amazing. I use this once every two weeks or so and have repurchased it.
