As an expensive skin care product junkie (I spend over $1500 a year on skin care alone), I can honestly say I'm smitten with this drugstore product.
I have very oily skin in the t-zone and frequent hormonal breakouts around my chin and nose. My dermatologist prescribed Ziana (a retin-a product with acne fighting properties) and doxycycline. I used the Ziana religiously for 3 months and it actually made my skin more oily! One tube of Ziana is over $600 without a one time coupon, so definitely not worth it!
I saw a tube of the Acne Free Sulfur Mask on my husband's vanity and decided to try it. I didn't read the directions to be honest - I just applied some to my t-zone one night and went to sleep. When I washed it off the next morning, my skin was almost poreless and two bumps I had on my chin were barely noticeable. I was shocked. I've been using it religiously 3x a week for a month, and my skin is flawless. I don't apply it on wet skin (maybe just damp after washing with Erno Laszlo Sea Mud soap) and don't rub it until it turns blue, although I'm sure that works, too.
Moisturizing is key after you wash it off. I use a micellar water (Boots brand - better than any pricey one from France) and then a serum and moisturizer. All I need is a primer and concealer after that and my skin looks polished.
Be careful if you sleep in it and have anything other than white pillowcases and sheets as it will change the color of them. A friend has been using sulfur masks as spot treatment for years and warned me about this.
It doesn't smell too strongly of sulphur, which is a plus. It's very, very opaque and not attractive while it's on, but it works like a dream so that doesn't bother me.

I've tried a few masks, but this one I think was my favorite one so far.
You really feel the affects of it once you've rinsed it off, and it gives off a pleasant sensation when you feel the little beads massaging against your skin.
Although the packaging is rather small you only require a small dollop of it to work with, so that isn't so bad. A little pricier than the cleanser, but completely understandable when considering the ingredients like sulfur, copper, zinc, and Vitamin C.
I might start using it again since summer is on it's way and I should probably keep a mask on hand on days when I need to give skin extra care. Acnfree is a reliable brand, and this is one of their many products I approve of.

This sulfur mask literally brought every inflamed imperfection to the surface and really cleaned out all of the gunk in my pores. I tend to leave the mask on a little bit longer and i find that it helps in really clearing out my pores. my face feels baby soft smooth after using it and my complexion is more even toned. I use it about once a week and occasionally will use just a dab for spot treatment for stubborn whiteheads. this is one of my favorite sulfur masks and is inexpensive

This is the only sulfur base mask that I have used and it will be my only one. I lovvveeeeeee this stuff! The sulfur really helps dry out pimples and cysts which is a plus for me. I like how there is blue beads in it that pop and change the color of the mask. I wish that it came in a bigger tube. Whenever i start to run out, it's hard to get out. It also dries really quickly so I like to steam my face before and leave the hot water on and put the mask on top of that. It can dry out your face so don't use it everyday. I highly recommend this sulfur mask(:

This is a nice sulfur and clay based mask. I wish that they would offer a larger size tube for the price because I use this quite often on my face and chest. It calms and helps control blemishes without irritating my skin. Has blue beads that you massage into the skin until the mask turns blue. Leave on skin for 10 minutes and rinse.

Though the tube it comes in is not very big, the product itself is fantastic. I was very skeptical as I've struggled with acne for a few years now and NOTHING has worked.. Sulfur works wonders! I don't think it's so much this brand as it is the quality of sulfur and how it dries out the oil and causes the skin to shed.
I've been using this product for a week and already my skin tone is more even and I have less inflammation and new pimples. I still get a few small whiteheads but i just put a small glob of the product on it and it quickly comes to a head without pain.
I leave the mask on overnight, which I would recommend for oily skin ONLY or on the oily parts of combination skin.. Don't use this for more than the recommended time if you have dry or sensitive skin!! It WILL dry your skin out!!

Love any sulfur based products. My skin reacts very well. I also use Joesoef Skin Care Sulfur 6.6% Mask/Lotion that dries on like mask. DDF also makes a great sulfur 10% mask. Joesoef Skin Care has s natural volcanic sulfur soap 10% that is an effective daily cleanser. Hope this helps any of those acne, tinea versicolor or dermatitis patients out there.....

So far I have been using this product as a spot treatment and have had a really good experience. I had one of those insane pimples (conveniently next to the mouth) that erupted. I spot treated the pimple each night for 4 days and its almost completely gone. I left the mask on the pimple overnight as well. I had been using the Pro Activ mask as a spot treatment and had similiar results. This product however, I feel is more gentle on the affected area and is less drying. The price is also less than Pro Activ.

I LOVE THIS! It has seriously changed my skin! My back and chest acne are going away, my face is clearing up and breaking out a lot less, maybe a one or two here and there but nothing other than that.
I use it to wash my face every night, but I don't let it dry completely otherwise it would probably really dry out my skin. I do leave it on as a mask once a week or so...
I also use it as a spot treatment, and it COMPLETELY clears up the pimples without them even rearing their heads!
I am going to find some other products with sulfur in them because obviously this product should be used on my skin to clear it up! & other people should hear about this great sulfur and also purchase!
There is one called De La Cruz and has a 10% sulfur content for spot treatment, so if anyone wants to try that they also sell it at Walgreens along with this product!

In my opinion, this is the BEST sulfur mask on the market at ANY price! I LOVE that it has copper in it as well, which is soooo good for inflamed, sensitive skin. I use this mask about once a week. Please note that you must follow the directions and dampen your face with water before you apply. Then, massage it in until the blue beads break and the mask turns blue. After it dries and I wash it off, I have seen significant improvement in reddness and any inflamed blemishes I have had right away. Sometimes, instead of water, I like to put some Isomers Copper P Concentrate serum on my face before I apply the mask. I feel like the extra copper really adds to the soothing properties of this treatment. I also love this as a spot treatment overnight (I squeeze out a small amount on the back of my hand and rub it to break the blue beads up and then, when it turns blue, I apply it to the spot) This is a WINNER! And so much less expensive than other sulfur treatments. The only downside is that I sometimes have a hard time finding it - not every CVS sells it. So I tend to stock up when I find it. OH! One tip! Usually there is a $1 off coupon in the box with the mask for "your next purchase". But I just open the box while I am in line and use the coupon for that mask. Saves me a buck everytime!
