The Purity Made Simple mask isn’t just an effective pore extractor, it's an award-winning acne treatment! Winning a CEW Best Seller Beauty Award, a 2018 Best of Beauty Award by Allure, and a 2018 QVC Customer Choice Beauty Award, this mask is an absolute fan favorite. It’s formulated with gold-standard white clay and salicylic acid, as well as natural exfoliants, for an intensive anti-acne facial treatment. Salicylic acid dissolves impurities that contribute to breakouts while exfoliants and white clay work together to retexture your skin. We know how frustrating adult acne can be (especially after being told it would go away after high school). If you're looking to beat your breakouts, the Purity Made Simple mask is definitely worth trying.
