What makes Cystic Acne Mask so awesome
Batty’s Cystic Acne Mask calms acne prone skin and combats external causes of acne including dehydration, bacteria, clogged pores, and irritation. As your skin calms (and inflammation is reduced), it will start to heal - something it can’t do while it’s irritated - Making calming of the skin a vital step in clearing acne.
Thanks to a handful of carefully picked ingredients - each chosen for their acne fighting powers - Batty’s Cystic Acne Mask not only targets the external causes of acne, but promotes healing. Packed with 200+ skin supporting nutrients (including vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and antioxidants), this mask promotes the removal of dead skin cells which helps prevent more pores becoming clogged. And what about those pores that are already clogged? This mask addresses them to by
- Pulling impurities and debris from pores
- Lubricating pores by hydrating the skin, making it easier for your skin to flush out dead skin cells and other debris BEFORE clogging your pores!
The hydrating ingredients in Batty’s Cystic Acne Mask do more than just calm, soothe, reduce inflammation, and reduce congestion (although those are all really important!). They also slow dehydration and moisture loss (which helps combat chronic acne-causing dehydration) and improves the texture of the skin and its elasticity. Why is this important? There are several reasons, but one of the most important ones is the anti-aging effects. Preventing anti-aging is important for people with acne-prone skin - not only because our skin experiences so much damage because of acne, but because many of us have used harsh acne treatments in the past. These harsh acne treatments promote premature signs of aging, making our skin look much older than it is (even years after we’ve stopped using these harsh treatments)! Definitely not the look any of us are going for! Thankfully, Batty’s Cystic Acne Mask promotes renewal, healing, and balance - all the things we need to undo damage from the past (and protect our skin from damage in the future!).
If that’s wasn’t enough, Batty’s Cystic Acne Mask also has some serious fighting power - as in bacterial, fungal, and viral fighting power! The ingredients in this mask kill acne-causing bacteria and helps boost your skin's natural infection-fighting abilities. This combined with loads of antioxidants make this mask a serious force to be reckoned with (at least if your name is acne!), all while being super gentle on your skin and promoting rapid healing!
And Batty’s Cystic Acne Mask doesn’t stop there! It also contains vitamin C! Why does that matter? Well, vitamin C does a lot of amazing things for the skin, but the benefit that those of us with oily skin and/or acne are most interested in, is its natural ability to reduce redness and discoloration (including uneven color left over from acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and sun damage).
In a nutshell:
- Calms irritated, swollen, sore, acne-riddled skin
- Helps prevent clogged pores
- Kills acne causing bacteria
- Promotes a natural reduction in redness, discoloration, and hyper-pigmentation
- Hydrates deep into the layers of your skin (dehydration is a common cause of acne!) and slows moisture loss
- Detoxifying (gently pulls impurities from the skin)
- Promotes the removal of pore clogging dead skin cells
- Restores and soothes damaged skin (especially damaged caused by acne)
- 100% natural and sensitive skin safe
Can I use this mask if I have rosacea?
Because all of the ingredients are super gentle, this mask is sensitive skin safe! Rosacea-prone skin may also see great results due to the hydrating, circulation promoting, anti-inflammatory, soothing, skin softening, damage restoring, anti-bacterial/fungal/viral properties! However, some folks with rosacea notice that their skin doesn't play nice with even small amounts of vitamin C. If you've used any of our other products that have vitamin C in them and your skin has given them the thumbs up, you should be ok with this mask (as the vitamin C levels are lower than in say, our Redness Relief Gel). However, if you have used our Redness Relief Gel or Pineapple Facial Scrub and your skin didn't find them gentle enough, this mask might not be right for you.

Wondering what a daily routine would look like with these products? Wonder no more! Here’s how it would break down: AM (in order of use): Green Tea & Pineapple Liquid Cleanser, Acne B.O.P Mist, Facial Primer & Daily Detox Moisturizer, (if you wear makeup, apply mineral foundation now), and lastly, Oil Absorbing Setting Powder. PM (in order of use): Tea Tree Facial Scrub, (if you’re using a hydration product, apply it now. For example, Hydra Healing Skin Rescue Gel), Balance Serum, and lastly, Patchouli Facial Moisturizer. You may want to apply the Patchouli Facial Moisturizer over the Balance Serum a few nights a week instead of every night depending on your personal preference. Using the Cystic Acne Mask weekly as well as the Dry Clay Mask will also help to balance oil.

Been using for over a month and it has successfully prevented and reduced my acne
When I found the acne kit and witnessed the dramatic improvement my skin underwent in just a few short weeks, I thought nothing could top those BB products. Then I tried the Cystic Acne Mask. In my experience, nothing gets rid of cystic acne. I typically get CA on my jaw line--deep, painful pimples that hurt when I forget to not lean with my hand on my chin. The Cystic Acne Mask is the only product I've ever tried that actually reduces the size and eventually eliminates CA. I don't really use it as a mask, but rather apply it as spot treatment. It does wonders! I highly recommend trying this if you suffer from CA like I do. Thanks again, Batty!
Really helping with my cystic acne.
This is unlike any mask I had used before. Super cooling and very easy to use. I haven't ever used a product like this and it has been one of my weekly go-to's for months now. Highly recommend it!
I get cystic acne on and off, and that is why I got this mask originally. I have (luckily) not had a cyst since I started my detox routine almost 3 weeks ago, but I have been using this mask once a week since I started. I find once I have used it, I get a whole new rash of pimples, but that is actually good! That means the mask is drawing that old gunk out of my skin from my "petrol" days. If I have bigger pimples, I put a dab of the mask on and wear it overnight. It is excellent for that-- really zaps those zits! I must also add that the pimples resulting from my detox are gone within a day. These detox products are really doing an amazing job.
I use this product under my moisturizer to prevent my acne. Especially when I know I'm prone to break out. If I do get a pimple this helps get rid of it quick without leaving the redness behind. I will never allow myself to run out of this product.
I bought this product around three months ago and I was using it like method 2 everyday and put the primer and facial moisturizer on top and I think that was a little too much for my skin, dried it out just a little. I have somewhat oily skin but not super oily. I still do use that method occasionally but I've mostly been using it now for spot treatment of my cystic acne and it's been working amazing! Usually my cystic spots will last for weeks or a month or more but using this every few days helps it go away and lessen significantly a week after getting. Love this!!
Like many other people, I have suffered with the occasional cystic acne bump. This product works really great for me! Not in the "it's a miracle my acne is gone" type of way. That type of product doesn't exist. This mask dries your acne and reduces the swelling of existing bumps without causing your face to get dry in the process. I've been using this product about twice a week for two months and have seen that I don't have any new cystic bumps forming and the bumps that I did have slowly went down in redness and size. I highly recommend this product! :)
Every night I apply a small amount, then apply my moisturizer like normal. I am very happy that the redness from pimples is starting to disappear! I have noticed a significant improvement in my acne and skin tone. Just to note, I have been using the charcoal soap bar to wash my face which I think is helping too.
this is really working for me. so far so good. i get a cystic pimple occasionally and this does the trick. I use it once a week or so and I sometimes just apply it to the pimple and it calms down the redness and reduces the size of it. a must have for acne!
