Not just a pretty face

This face mask isn’t just pretty to look at—it actually clarifies and cools the skin, too. The blue color comes from its star ingredient: blue tansy oil, which reduces inflammation and combats redness. Plus natural BHA and AHA gently exfoliate to reveal a smoother healthier-looking complexion.

Apply a thin layer to clean skin. Leave on for 15 to 20 minutes (stick to five minutes for sensitive skin) or until mask is completely dry and then rinse with warm water.


For the first five days, use every other day for best results. After day five, use two to three times per week to maintain results.

  • Good but Harsh

    Emily B. September 24, 2020

    fantastic for skin in need of total exfoliation. do NOT use on sensitive skin! also, it turns from blue to a mucky green over time so you’ll have to use it fairly quickly.

  • so good.

    Ava June 30, 2020

    i havent even bought this from follain i just amazon it, but people need to know how good this stuff is. i struggle with hormonal acne and this stuff has helped me so much. it reduces redness and inflammation even overnight. It is very natural, so it is gental but if you use this a few times a week, it works awesome. If im having a breakout, i use it two or three nights in a row and it hepls so much and does not over dry. EVERYONE NEEDS THIS

  • Great, but reduce time for sensitive skin

    Brittany June 16, 2020

    This was the first mask I have ever tried and it was amazing. The pros are the smell and how well it worked on my face to calm acne and redness. The cons is I couldn’t always keep the mask on for the full 15-20 minutes as recommended. I find that it does dry out your face so follow up with at least a moisturizer. I’ve tried other masks since and find this one is my favorite. I will be repurchasing when I finish up my other masks.

  • Amazing Face Mask!!

    Asher May 13, 2020

    Love the smell and the mask is gentle yet effective. My partner is now using it and I’m definitely going to repurchase this when it runs out. It has a clarifying feeling but doesn’t overdo it on the skin. Really nice clean feeling without being too drying. Amazing mask. You’ll love this one!

  • Love the smell

    J April 06, 2020

    I love the smell of Blue Tansy. I am impressed with the product so far, but I don’t keep it on longer thant 12-15 minutes otherwise it starts to sting.

  • YAS

    Meghan April 03, 2020

    Ugh, I can’t even begin to share how much I LOVE this mask. After trying Herbivore’s BRIGHTEN mask, I knew I had to try this one, too. Follow the instructions and use it 4 days in a row, then follow with once a week use. A little goes a long way, and you will feel some tingling, but it does it’s job and has truly helped with my acne-prone skin. Definitely follow up with a toner & moisturizer to avoid drying out your skin – it doesn’t dry out like your typical acne-treatment masks, but still take the precautions to avoid it.


    Laura L. February 10, 2020

    this makes your face tingle and is super super refreshing – absolutely love!!

  • Great product at a decent price!!!

    Ana January 14, 2020

    I love this face mask! It’s not super intense but still tingly and your face feels super clean fresh and doesn’t dry you out. it smells amazing too!
    I think it’s one of the best, cheaper and cleaner (ingredient wide) masks out there definitely keeping it as a staple.

  • My go-to

    A.k. December 10, 2019

    I was not sure if this mask would work very well, but I am telling you when I am breaking out horribly and use this mask a few days in a row, it tremendously calms my skin down in a gentle way. My skin tone is much more even looking after multiple uses. I have splotchy red patches on my face, and I feel that this mask definantly helps reduce that. It also lasts forever so makes the price worth it. I have bought this twice already!

  • Not ideal for my sensitive skin

    Tatiana November 16, 2019

    I really wanted to love this product, and while it is effective, it causes my sensitive skin too much distress. It definitely does clear my skin up to a degree, but the process ends up giving me a burning sensation unfortunately. I would reccomend this to someone with normal or oily skin, but beware if you’re sensitive like me!

  • The best face mask for clogged pores!!

    Lila L. September 08, 2019

    I love this face mask. It actually does what it says it will do. I put this on two times a week and it immediately shrinks my pores. Highly recommend!

  • #1 Acne-Reducing Product

    Payton C. September 08, 2019

    Greatly helped my acne! Skin has cleared up tremendously!

  • Miracle Product!

    Maeve D. July 11, 2019

    Glowing, clear skin! Finally! I almost thought my skin was a lost cause. It is sensitive, combination and acne prone. But this magical mask has cleared the vast majority of my pimples without the irritation most acne treatments have caused me. I finally feel like my skin looks GOOD. I can’t recommend this product enough!

  • Amazing product!

    Katie M. June 22, 2019

    I love this mask. It’s super easy to use and gentle. It also lasts a long time so you truly get your money’s worth.

  • This mask rules.

    Amy C. April 30, 2019

    I have been using this for a few weeks and love it so much! It has decreased the size of my pores and is helping a lot with my blackheads. It has helped even out my overall skin tone!

  • Recommend if you enjoy the Lapis Face Oil

    E. L. April 17, 2019

    I’m pretty happy with this product as it hasn’t caused an allergic reaction (unheard of for me!) and was affordable as part of Follain’s $20 blemish fighter kit, which includes a pretty generous trial size of the Blue Tansy Mask as well as a cleanser and teeny tiny spot treatment sample. I haven’t experienced any irritation or additional breakouts with this mask, and it doesn’t seem to have increased my dryness. This mask is pretty gentle so I like to use it when my skin is particularly dry or inflamed, and I use the Indie Lee Clearing Mask when my skin isn’t feeling quite as sensitive. I haven’t noticed any measurable results yet but I’m constantly fine-tuning my routine, so there are too many variables for me to accurately rate this mask’s effectiveness. I wouldn’t purchase at full price but I might repurchase the blemish fighter kit just for this mask.

  • Good Resurfacing Mask

    Lana E. April 09, 2019

    This is a great resurfacing mask. It’s not very potent but if you use it for a few days in a row, as it is recommended that you do when you first start using it, you notice a difference in the clarity and smoothness of your skin. I usually end up using it 3 days in a row for a visible difference and then take a break from it for several weeks and use a different mask. It is also a soothing mask because of the blue tansy oil helps with redness and irritation.

  • So satisfying!

    Angela April 02, 2019

    I pair this mask with Herbivore’s Lapis Oil and it’s a dream-duo! It makes my skin super soft and keeps my pesky adult acne at bay.

  • New Staple!

    Shanelle W. December 10, 2018

    I really enjoyed this item in the Blemish kit and purchased a full size of the Blue Tansy mask during the Black Friday sale. This mask has become a staple for me as my sensitive and oily skin has a tendency to become easily congested and breakout. It has helped with my active acne spots as well as dark marks. It gets rid of build up from my acne treatment and sunscreen and helps reveal nice even skin. It smells a little funky and the texture is slimy due to the aloe, but it’s worth it to maintain my skin.

  • Obsessed!

    Katie P. November 24, 2018

    Love this mask, feels slightly tingly while drying and makes my skin so soft after removing it. Use it twice a week and now eyeing more herbivore products to try. I put on a facial oil after and can already tell an improvement in my skin. Highly recommend!

  • My Cystic Acne is Cleared

    Brittany B. November 20, 2018

    I can not express how much I love this mask. In two weeks, I went from have deep cystic acne, dark spots and scars, and little white pimple heads poking out of my pores, to having a clear face. I could cry from excitement. I have not seen my face this clear in a couple of years. This is my skin regime: I cleanse with the Osea Ocean Cleanser in the morning and apply the Indie Lee COQ-10 toner after, followed by the Osea Blemish Balm. I do the same routine at night, except I will apply this mask right after cleansing on the nights I am supposed to. When you get this mask, it says that you should apply it every night for the first four nights, and then every third night after this. I actually ended up applying it every night for 7 nights. I will give you a heads up that your face will probably go through a purging period. My face went through a stage where I got more acne for about 4 days, then it started to clear up. Two weeks later, I do not have any more cystic acne and my scars and dark spots have faded SOOOO much. I HIGHLY recommend this mask to anyone who has acne. I have combination skin and it does not dry me out. As a bonus, I like the smell of the mask. It isn’t strong, but when you do smell it, it smells really nice.

  • Won’t be repurchasing

    Bethany N. November 04, 2018

    There was so much hype about this product and I love this particular brand for their clean ingredients and cute packaging. I really expected it to work after reading all of the great reviews! Alas I am pretty sure this mask actually breaks me out more! Each time I’ve used it I seem to break out :/ Maybe I’m just allergic to one of the ingredients? The product looks and smells good but that’s about it.

  • So luxurious!

    Kayla October 06, 2018

    I love using this product! It feels like such a treat and has helped keep my acne prone skin calm though I am still trying to clear a few problem spots. I love the smell and it is gentle enough for me to use as an overnight treatment. The only reason I give it a 4 is just because I’m not sure I will spend $48 on the full size version once my sample runs out but I think even the sample size will last me a long time because all you need is a very thin layer over your entire face. Sometimes I use it just on my problem areas and it does help keep it under control. I would suggest using it with the OSEA mudd cleanser and OSMIA spot treatment for best results. So excited to have found Follain!

  • Amazing

    Kate September 12, 2018

    I have combination, acne-prone skin, and this mask has worked wonders. I used it every night for the first 4 nights, as instructed on the packaging, and every 3 nights since then. The first 2 weeks were brutal; I haven’t had a breakout that bad since high school, but I’m so glad I stuck with it. I’ve been using it for about 4 weeks total now, and my skin has never been so smooth and clear.

  • Time consuming but worth it

    Emma August 29, 2018

    This product definitely works but you have to put in the time to see results. I have breakout prone skin and this product has made a world of a difference but only after using it every night for the first week and then consistently using it every other night after that. If your looking for a quick fix this is not it but if your someone like me who doesn’t mind spending a long time on their skincare regimen then I highly recommend this product for those struggling with adult acne

  • Love the Scent, I can’t get enough!

    Diane S. August 24, 2018

    I loved everything about this mask, except that I found it to be a bit drying for my dry skin. This is the only reason it doesn’t get 6 stars! Please make a Blue tansy formula for dry skin. xo

  • Delicious

    Ann June 22, 2018

    I was surprised to find a nice-sized sample of this in my bag the last time I was in. I used it three times and LOVED it. Smells great. Works. I have pretty sensitive skin and it didn’t irritate it at all. My skin looks super clear and fresh after using it. I also noticed that Jonathan from Queer Eye is a fan of this so obviously it must be incredible. I plan to buy the full-size next time I am at the store. Thanks for turning me onto this, Follain! I didn’t know I even liked masks.
