Unfortunately for me, I started struggling with acne at the ripe age of 26. I've tried a ton of products, even prescriptions, to manage breakouts while always trying to keep my skincare routine simple and gentle since I have sensitive skin that scars easily. Masks are something I've always tried to stay away from because they can be a little too rough on my skin, but after trying the new Murad Rapid Relief sulfur mask ($44) I've changed my tune because I'm finally seeing real results.
I'm not someone who has accepted the endless cycle of blemishes that plague my face—in fact, I curse every one of those pesky splotches. So my efforts in finding products that produce palpable results are tedious and require checking a lot of boxes, including formula quality, product-to-price ratio, how long it takes to see results, consistency of the mask and how it feels when it's on my skin.
