Rapid Response Maskne Spray by Renée Rouleau is a multi-action soothing treatment that interrupts mask-related breakouts in their early stages by instantly reducing surface bacteria on the skin. With the same formulation as the Rapid Response Detox Toner, this spray includes pore-clearing AHA and BHA exfoliants and microbiome-balancing prebiotic sugar. With one spritz, it encourages a healthy ecosystem where “bad” bacteria won’t thrive. The result is clearer, calmer skin when using protective face masks.
Pair with Rapid Response Detox Cleanser for even more acne-fighting benefits. You can also take this to the next level and add the Rapid Response Detox Masque, the product that started the whole line. The Rapid Response Detox Masque is very effective for preventing the appearance of all types of breakouts, including cysts, pustules, papules, and monthly hormonal blemishes.
Size: 2 fl oz

- Raspberry Fruit - Seboxyl® (Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Leaf Extract/Ribes Nigrum (Blackcurrant) Leaf Extract) - organic plant extract blend that limits oxidation and blackhead formation, reduces oiliness, and soothes redness and irritation caused by breakouts.
- Bioecolia® (Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharide) - prebiotic (fermented polysaccharide) that prevents the proliferation of harmful microorganisms and boosts the growth of beneficial ones.

- Betaine Salicylate (Salicylic Acid Complex) - exfoliating beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that helps clear and prevent clogged pores by breaking down sebum (oil). Lifts discoloration from blemish scarring.
- Propanediol - humectant that helps the skin retain moisture.

Yes, Rapid Response Maskne Spray can be misted on over makeup.
Can you use it post-workout?
Yes, you can. Just don't skip your usual post-workout routine.
Is it drying?
No, it's formulated with glycerin and propanediol to help retain moisture and protect your moisture barrier.
Will it disrupt sunscreen protection?
It won't disrupt water-resistant formulas. Once you take your mask off at the end of the day, be sure to reapply sunscreen or use a powder if your skin is going to be exposed to UV light.
How often should this spray be reapplied?
Spray the skin under your mask every 4 hours. Let it dry before putting your mask back on.
How does this spray differ from the Rapid Response Detox Toner?

Can I refill this bottle?
Yes, You can refill this bottle with the Rapid Response Detox Toner, which has the same formulation.
How Does this spray differ from the Rapid Response Detox Masque or Rapid Response Detox Cleanser?
Leptospermum Scoparium (Manuka) Branch/Leaf Oil and Tea Tree are the two ingredients that Rapid Response Detox Masque and Rapid Response Detox Cleanser have in common with this spray. The spray differs in that it offers advanced skin-smoothing exfoliation and more potent blackhead-clearing benefits. The addition of a prebiotic also promotes the growth of healthier bacteria to keep skin acting clear and calm.
Why did you choose to use prebiotics in the spray rather than probiotics?
We chose to use prebiotics instead of probiotics in order to ensure a safe and effective product. Using probiotics in skincare can be risky because you’re adding live microbes to a product, which can be difficult to control. Prebiotics still positively affect your skin’s microbiome without the risks and challenges associated with the preservation and storage of live microbes.
Is this considered an exfoliating spray?
No. While it does have two acids in the formula that give the skin various benefits, they are used in a small amount and not enough to act as a true exfoliator.
Can I safely use an acid serum after using this spray or will that be too much?
You can safely use this spray with other exfoliating products without a problem.
Can I use this product if I’m pregnant?
Probably not. This product uses salicylic acid which some doctors suggest avoiding during pregnancy. Consult with your doctor.
Is this product vegan?
Yes, Rapid Response Maskne Spray is vegan.
What are the acid percentages in this toner?
2% Betaine Salicylate (a Salicylic Acid complex) and 0.3% lactic acid.

Yes, this formula can be tolerated well by those who have been diagnosed with mild rosacea.

I absolutely LOVE this product and I don’t even wear a mask in public anymore. It is wonderful at preventing breakouts and leaves my skin with a really pretty glow!

I started using this when I feel a cystic bump coming, and it really helps subdue it. Two times in a row now the cystic bump never really got going badly! I rotate back-and-forth with this and then using the detox mask as a spot treatment also. Works for me!

Don't mean to be trite, but am obsessed with this especially as a 3. Renée always know how to make a product that fills a need. If you can remember to use it, it's great. It's a delight to use it each time rather than cumbersome and takes out for me all the not nice feelings one may have daily regarding recurring mask wearing

I read about this product in a copy of in Style Magazine last fall. I liked that there weren't a lot of chemicals and it was a reasonable price point. So I gave it a whirl, as the constant mask wearing was destroying my skin! Like the other RR products I've since tried, it is amazing! It helps form a protective barrier between your face and the mask, reducing mask-related breakouts. I now have one in my purse and one at my desk!
