Rapid Response Detox Masque by Renée Rouleau is an award-winning acne treatment that quickly rids bacteria and oil from deep within pores to prevent and clear away blemishes while instantly calming surface redness and irritation. When used at the first signs of breakouts or a few days before your monthly cycle, this groundbreaking anti-inflammatory gel face masque for acne will effectively disrupt the visible blemish cycle to encourage smoother skin with fewer noticeable bumps. The result? Calmer, clearer, more even-toned skin by Renee Rouleau.
For maximum results, prior to using this masque, remove surface cellular buildup with an exfoliant like Triple Berry Smoothing Peel.This will ensure the pore-clearing, blemish-fighting ingredients penetrate deep within the skin's surface. For clearing stubborn chin and jawline breakouts fast and preventing new ones from appearing, we suggest using our Chin Breakout Treatment Kit: a combo of our two best hormonal breakout-busting products. We offer the Rapid Response and Triple Berry as a set with our Rapid/Peel Duo. For maintenance, it's best to use an exfoliating serum like BHA Clarifying Serum or Pore + Wrinkle Perfecting Serum a few times a week in the evening to keep the skin even-toned and prevent the pores from getting congested.

- This mask can also be used after cleansing in the evening and left on for five minutes before proceeding with your regular nighttime routine.
- Did You Know? Just before the start of a woman's cycle, there is more progesterone in the skin causing water retention resulting in the skin appearing more puffy. When this occurs, it puts pressure on the pores and creates a narrower pore lining. Additionally, oil can get thicker because of the imbalance of hormones and increase of testosterone during the pre-period hormonal shift. When you have thicker oil trying to get through a narrower opening, this is creates an environment within the skin where breakouts can now begin. Rapid Response Detox Masque is the perfect solution to use daily a few days before the start of your cycle.

Can’t tell if it’s helping me yet as I’m in the midst of a weeks long breakout (which is why I bought it). Came to the reviews to see if anyone else noted an off- smell and there is a recent reviewer who seems to be getting the same scent as me: like mildew almost or something that’s been wet too long. I’m not usually sensitive to smells or offended by the various scents of products but this makes me wonder if something is wrong with it.

This mask is great! One star down because for some reason it smells like wet dog to me. After using it the first time, I scaled the reviews and no one else seems to be bothered, but this is a stinky masque.

This mask!!! 🤩🤩🤩 I literally never write reviews but I just bought my maybe 4th? one of these masks and y’all… I live for this mask. I’ve been using it for maybe 3-4 and it is one of the only products I’ve ever found that can clear my skin in days. Without this mask I’m a skin type 4 but when I use this 2-3x/week at night to keep my skin clear I test like a 6 (IYKYK). This is a GAME changer esp if you’re a psycho like me trying out prescription retinoids. Just buy it y’all.

Definitely helps but sometimes seems to help less than other times for same issues. Love the light scent, as someone prone to scent-related migraines. A must have but doesn’t eliminate need for other products so I have to try this or that.

I bought this mask after searching for a remedy for a horrible hormonal acne breakout. I am an African American woman in my 20’s for context. This mask is now my go to whenever I’m having hormonal breakouts or any breakouts as I have acne prone skin. It feels great and you can tell it’s not overworking or harsh on the skin as some masks because when you leave it on longer than you’re supposed to, it doesn’t cause extra peeling, drying or irritation. You can expect to see positive results from this mask within 1 week! I highly recommend you try this mask if you experience hormonal and/or cystic acne.
