The Muse is pretty lucky as she rarely gets pimples or acne or spots of any kind. Her skin is nice and clear thankfully with a pimple that pops up on a rare occasion. This could account for the Muse is well past the age to be bothered by acne or it could be Lush skincare that takes good care of her skin. Whatever the case may be it’s pretty rare that I have any problems in regards to acne.
When I decided to try out DermaDoctor Ain’t Misbehavin’ Intensive Skin-Correcting Sulfur Mask I was having a rather good day in regards to my skin so I decided to tuck it away for a day I really needed it. That day happened to come this week when a big fat pimple popped up on the side of my face…actually thinking about it…it’s kinda a crop of pimples…ewww! I’m unsure where these came from but they did decide to take up residence on my face and hang out with me for a bit. Here in lay a perfect excuse to try the mask out!
First things first I think it deserves to be said that the mask is a tad bit intense or at least I felt like it was so I’m unsure how those with sensitive skin will fair. When I say intense I mean it does have a slightly warm almost burning feeling as it does contain a healthy dose of Benzoyl Peroxide. I have a normal skin type and I wasn’t really bugged over much by the burning however if you’re a bit sensitive this could cause redness or burning so do a spot check prior to doing a complete treatment. The mask also contains 10% Sulfur which is the highest level of sulfur approved to kill blemish-causing bacteria and aid in exfoliation of the skin.
DermaDoctor Ain’t Misbehavin’ Intensive Skin-Correcting Sulfur Mask can be used either as a mask or a spot treatment. I used it as a full mask treatment this week to clear up the crop of pimples that were happily vacationing on my face however if you think your skin is on the sensitive side you can dab a bit on before bed to zap away unwanted pests.
I’ve used masks like this before and have always had one main problem with them….drying…they are terribly, terribly drying. So drying in fact that my skin flakes and peels off! Gross! The good news is that this mask is actually quite gentle and it washes clear off without leaving a dry spot behind! For me that’s pretty amazing as it does contain ingredients that are normally very drying to my skin.
In order to use the mask you’ll simply be applying a thin layer of the product to your face and leave it on for 15 minutes before washing off with cool water. The mask dries fairly quickly and it’ll start to feel quite tight on your face. For the crop of pimples on my face it took two mask treatments to rid myself of the pesky demons. I used the product once in the evening prior to bed, again the next evening, and on the third day I seen that the pimples had disappeared completely. Pretty good results. In regards to heavier acne you may want to try it out for three times a week for a month to see results. I think it’ll do well at clearing up moderate to heavier acne woes but results will vary from person to person. One aspect of the mask that you may find helpful is it’s quite drying for oily skin types so this could help rid yourself of oily skin which sometimes is the root of all evil when it comes to acne.
The formula boasts quite a nice floral scent which I liked very much however once it dries down and you’re washing it off you’ll get a very faint rotten egg smell which is of course the sulfur but honestly it’s not bad at all when compared to some products and for the most part I really loved the floral scent during application….it’s quite fresh and herbal like almost. The packaging is fantastic! It comes in push applicator which allows you to push to release the mask a la Kate Somerville moisturizers and exfoliators which means your fingers aren’t dipping in the product.
Who should use it?
At $45 USD it’s not cheap so if you rarely get pimples you might not want to indulge in such an expensive product however if you have acne regularly or suffer from it daily it’s probably well worth trying out to see how well it does clearing up your skin. The formula penetrates pores and eliminates and prevents acne blemishes so in conjunction with other DermaDoctor skincare you may successfully be on your way to clearer skin in a month or so.
I actually liked the mask alot and will probably repurchase it in the future since it worked so quickly. It’s a nice item to have in my medicine cabinet on the days when an ugly pimple rears it’s head. Personally I’d buy it again simply because of the lack of unpleasant drying that’s associated with most acne products I’ve tried. This is a key selling point for me because I seriously can’t stand how flaky and dry my skin gets after using simple spot treatment products.
All in all if you’re looking for a quick recovery, a spot treatment, or something for heavier acne woes this is worth checking out. I thought it did a great job of banishing my pimples and getting my skin back to normal minus all the fuss of dry skin!
