I don't think it will brighten the skin. I don't think it will irritate your skin. I have had severe acne and in the past have hit it with glycolic/syl acids, benzo's, you name it I did it. My skin was hypersensitive, I was breaking out because the stuff was only temporary. I decided to change up and go natural. I did a gentle cleanser (Caudalie), and the Boscia Vital moisturizer. I also do the Detox mask once a week in the winter and twice in the summer. Instead of doing a glycolic toner, cleanser that was chemically made, I did the Caudalie mask to clear the skin once a week in the winter and twice a week in the summer. My hypersensitve/prone to break out skin has calmed down. Good luck.

Hi there! This mask does not hydrate skin. It clarifies skin, and for my money it does a good job of it without drying skin out. My skin is combination too, and fairly ornery, though I'm not as sensitive to fragrance as someone with truly sensitive skin. I love this mask, and have experienced no problems with it. If you're concerned about a reaction, see if you can finagle a sample or swap before committing to a purchase.

you should be fine and i would only use this where you are breaking out and oily...its gentle and your skin wont feel dry but just smooth and very clean

I have sensitive, combo skin, too. I didn't find it to be drying, and was very refreshing and made my skin feel very clean. The price is a little steep for the size of the tube, but you only need a little to spread on your face.

I have the same skin type as you and it has worked well for me. If I rinse this off after 10 minutes it leaves my skin smooth and hydrated. It also seems that it has helped with my breakouts.

it is brightens skin a little bit, just evens out the tone. If you have break outs you might want to wait until they gone and use it. It clears pores very well.

I have combo skin and breakout a lot in the summer. I actually started using boscia b/c of a recommendation from a girl who had trouble with acne and sensitive skin. She said it was the only thing she would use anymore. I use the mask once a week and I don't have any issues w/ breaking out more-it has actually helped out a lot.

This mask is very mild. It doesn't over-dry as long as you use it as directed (5 minutes). I guess it brightens in the sense of removing little particles from your skin, but there's no claim saying (not that I feel) it can do the brightening job.

My skin is oily, but I also have rosacea and my skin is easily irritated. I have some acne on my face but most acne medications dry my skin too much. In other words, my skin is complicated. I love this mask! It dries up the oil without overdrying. It doesn't make my skin feel tight or itchy. I've been using the mask 2x per week for the past several weeks. I also use it on my neck and chest. I love it and will buy it again.

The Boscia line in general is very subtle, which i think is ideal for someone with sensitive skin. I personally live in a city with high polution so i was amazed at how quickly i saw results. My skin was smoother and my pores were smaller. However, I did purchase the night, day and eye cream. The good news is the line is very affordable compared to other skin care lines offered at Sephora.
