Effaclar Purifying Clay Mask

  • A dermatological clay mask clinically proven to unclog pores
  • control shine and cleanse impurities caused by pollution.



A dermatological clay mask clinically proven to unclog pores, control shine and cleanse impurities caused by pollution.


Specifically formulated for oily, blemish-prone and sensitive skin in adults and teenagers. Clinically proven to unclog pores, control shine and cleanse even the deep impurities caused by pollution without over-drying your skin. This dermatological clay absorbs sebum and impurities as well as preventing the future causes of blackheads. Clearer skin in 4 weeks. Suitable for sensitive skin.

  • Gently absorbs excess sebum to control shine
  • Reduces the appearance of blackheads
  • Skin feels clean and fresh


Enriched with argilla & kaolin. Argilla gently absorbs sebum from the skin's surface without over-drying or causing micro-inflammation of the sebaceous glands. Kaolin helps to target and remove sebum from deep inside the skin - helping to mattify skin over time. The mask also contains 5% Panthenol B which helps soothe and calm skin post sebum-extraction, reducing the risks of over-stimulating the sebum glands. CellubeadsTM help remove all impurities from the skin for an in-depth cleansing action. They have a magnet-like ability to absorb even the smallest and most invisible impurities in the skin, for example those caused by polluton.


Effaclar has been through rigorous dermatological testing to ensure it is suitable for use on even the most sensitive skin.

Customer Reviews

Effaclar Purifying Clay Mask is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I'm really impressive. Skin is immediately softer, soothed without tightness and over drying effect, ready for am/pm skincare routine. Very refreshing mask with purified effect. Very good price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but underwhelming Ive used this product as recommended by the packaging (once a week) for several weeks now, I don't feel it has a purifying effect at all, it removes skin oils but they will replenish shortly and doesn't have a long lasting affect

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Like but not love Whilst this product does make skin seem clean and refreshed I can't say as I have noticed much of a mattifying action which was a big selling point of the product for me. Whether this will change over time is yet to be seen ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good first impressions I have only used this mask a couple of times so far so haven't noticed a dramatic difference yet however from First use I was impressed at how easy it is to apply and how well it soaks in during those 5 minutes without making your skin feel tight as other masks have done. I have used a few products from this range and have always been happy with them so I am looking forward to continuing with this mask and see what improvements it will make to my skin

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Purified pores I love the La Roche Posay line and this is a lovely addition to the range. The clay mask dries down quickly and washes off easily. It leaves my skin feeling soft and cleansed without leaving an overly tight feeling which some masks can do. Althoigh this is a lovely mask, I probably wouldn't purchase it again as it doesn't greatly impact the look of my skin as other alternatives do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice and thick Good consistency to the product. Went on really well. Felt really hydrating and smelt nice. Was a little difficult to wash off but apart from that, great product. Skin felt refreshed afterwards.
