I am a big fan of Irie Rock products, why? Because they work!
I’ve been using Irie Rock skin care products for about a year now and these products work well on my skin, so when I saw that they released a new product, I just had to give it a try!
The Irie Rock Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Clarifying Acne Masque is the newest product in their Tea Tree & Witch Hazel line. The masque has antiseptic and anti-acne properties that helps to “undo damage” leaving your skin looking and feeling amazing. The Glycolic and Salicylic acid work on exfoliating the skin, while the Bentonite Clay pulls impurities and detoxes the skin, leaving your skin feeling really soft.
This masque has a liquid consistency; the thing I love about the packaging of this product is the fact that it has a pump, which limits the mess usually associated with masques.
I cleanse my skin before applying the masque then apply one pump to each section of my face, smoothing the masque over my skin. Upon applying the masque I could feel my skin tingling, which I suspect is from the tea tree and witch hazel, along with the peppermint. Unfortunately this masque is harsh and I notice that effect after about a minute after applying the masque to my skin as my eyes began to water a little. This sensation lasts for a short time, after which the masque starts to dry on the skin. I leave the masque on for about 30 minutes, by this time it is dry and my face is a little tight. I then remove the masque either with warm water, rinsing it from my face or with a warm wash cloth, which easily removes all the product from the skin.
After removing the masque, my skin felt great. I believe applying this masque to a new pimple will help to dry up the area and possibly reduce any redness and swelling which may be associated with acne.
There is no fragrance added so this is not a ‘sweet smelling’ product. What you will smell is the tea tree oil and witch hazel, making this product smell quite similar to the Irie Rock Tea Tree and Witch Hazel toner.

Inna di lataz,
Hello Beauty Vibers!
Skin care and health is very important to me. Recently, I had a few breakouts in my problem area, which is my right cheek, and for some reason, I went and squeezed and irritated the area, which left me with a lot of dark spots.
I was given the AriClearSkin Acne Treatment System line and because I haven’t used the entire line together, I decided to give it a try. For one week, I included these products into my skin care regimen and consistently used the products to see how they would work and if they would remove the spots.
Personally, I’m not a fan of sulfur and given that I’m not having an acne problem, but a dark spot problem, I decided to use the AriBriteTone cleansing bar instead of using the AriSulfur bar which comes in the acne system.
Unfortunately, I did not document my time using the products, so I will not be able to show you my results. As I said before, I incorporated the Ari products into my regimen, so they were not the only products used, but I replaced many of my usual products with the Ari products. The great thing about this is it is just four steps and it doesn’t take too long.
- Cleanse: I cleanse my face with my favourite cleanser, which is the Irie Rock Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Scrub, just to wash away any makeup or dirt on my skin. This is not something you need to do, this is just my preference. I then follow up with the AriBriteTone bar which I apply to my face as usual then I use a spin brush to wash my face. If you don’t have a spin brush, that’s fine. When you purchase the regular size bar soap you get a cleansing sponge which will work well.
- Tone: I apply the AriToner after cleansing to remove anything that may have remained on my skin after cleansing. This toner closes the pores and brightens the skin. I put the toner on to a cotton pad and then apply to my skin, concentrating on my cheeks.
- Moisturize: After cleansing and applying the toner I apply this lightweight moisturizer and work it into my face, just like I would any other moisturizer.
- Spot treatment: Dab just a little of the spot treatment onto the spots. This is a bit concentrated, so you don’t need to use a lot.
I started to see results two days after I started using these products consistently. The spots started to fade and my skin just looked brighter, not lighter, but brighter. I have a little bit of discolouration and I’ve seen where that is minimized and my skin looks clearer. There were a few spots on my forehead and my left cheek which were barely noticeable which are now gone and the spots on my right cheek are almost gone, will probably be gone by the end of the week.
Please note that results will vary. Using the products consistently has definitely contributed greatly to my results. During my time using the products, I did not make any significant changes to my diet or water intake, nor was I taking any medication.
