Dr. Dennis Gross Clarifying Colloidal Sulfur Mask Review
Wake up to clearer skin in just one night! The never ending fight to clear spots and pimples has just gotten a little easier with the help of our good ol’ Doctor! This new overnight clarifying mask by Dr. Dennis Gross skincare is essential in fighting the war on troubled skin! It miraculously clears out pores, banishes blackheads, reduces oil, and diminishes pimples all while you sleep! Talk about beauty sleep!
I myself have been battling hormonal acne and spots for years. I believe, like most of us who have this problem, that I have tried literally EVERY product known to man and have spent thousands of dollars trying to clear my skin. The major problem with acne care is that they all tend to include the same limiting ingredients; either Salicylic Acid, Benzol Peroxide, Alcohol, or even Tea Tree oil. The issue with these ingredients is that they are most effective on extremely oily skin types where pimples are formed mainly due to the excess sebum. If you are like me and don’t have the oil but still have the spots, these treatments reek havoc on your skin causing excessive dryness, redness, and even more spots.
It wasn’t until recent years that dermatologists started to really focus on hormones as another legitimate cause for acne. Hormonal acne occurs when there is excess levels of the male hormone Testosterone and other male hormones, Androgens, that are found in females. These excess levels can occur during puberty but can also occur in adulthood, particularly around the time of a women’s period. Unfortunately, there isn’t a cream that can combat high levels of Androgens, typically this problem is treated in women by prescribing a contraceptive pill that has anti-androgen like properties. However, there are a few products that I have found to be highly effective at dealing with hormonal acne at the skin level, and the Clarifying Colloidal Sulfur Mask is one of them.
The main difference between this product and other acne products on the market, is it’s use of Sulfur as the key ingredient. If you are like me and your skin hasn’t responded well to other spot creams out there, than this is a must-try product for you! This is one of THE most highly effective products that I own at healing pimples, reducing oil, unclogging and shrinking pores and eliminating blackheads. And it does ALL this without over-drying my highly sensitive skin! This is such an important point to make here because all other acne products I have tried are way too harsh on my delicate skin.
Not only does this product feature Sulfur, which acts to reduce pimples by reducing inflamation and absorbing oil, it also contains Retinol which increases moisture in the skin which is why your skin doesn’t dry out with this product. It is the perfect balance of acne-fighting ingredients and skin kindness! Not to mention that Retinol is also an age-fighter! There are also a few other natural ingredients in here as well, such as Licorice Root which also is an anti-inflammatory and skin lightener to help reduce the redness of the pimple. In addition, Bentonite, a natural clay which draws out impurities and absorbs oil and Prickly Pear which also calms redness and irritation.
And what isn’t in this amazing product? A whole bunch of nasty chemicals that are found in other acne treatments like Parabens, Sulfates, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, or synthetics dyes or fragrances!
The best part about this acne treatment is that it works while you sleep, so no need to apply gunky creams to your pimples during the day ruining your makeup application and, well, simply feeling uncomfortable. This treatment is a mask applied to problem areas or just to the pimples themselves and is left on overnight to work it’s magic.
Just after one night, my pimples dramatically reduced in size, were not glaring red, and pores vanished! By morning my skin looked brighter, smoother, clearer, and happier!
Whether you are looking for a great acne treatment, want a targeted spot treatment for occasional spots, or are looking for an all-over mask for oily skin, then the Dr. Dennis Gross Clarifying Sulfur Mask is a must! A must with one downfall however, the smell. Sulfur is not the prettiest of smells, ok I’ll be honest, it stinks, but for those of us who want clear skin, we’ll do anything!
