sulfur masks/products with sulfur in them

I used to use and love Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion for cystic acne and stubborn spots. Worked better than the pink stuff for me, so I used it on all face bumps. The Buffering Lotion had sulfur in it and was very effective for me.

I've been reading about DDF Sulfur Mask and wondering if anyone has used that and gotten good results. It's supposed to be great as a spot treatment and also, as the name states, a mask. My skin is dry and can get very peely so if i use it as a mask, I probably won't keep it on more than 10 minutes. Many people sleep with it on.

Has anyone used either of these or other products with sulfur in them and gotten good results?

    I used this a few years ago and liked it fairly well. It seemed to help some, but didn't work miracles. I ordered online, but I know Harris Teeter carried part of the line in their stores.

    ETA: I used the soap (nice and creamy) and the lotion.

    Just think I used to worry 'bout things like that,

    Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask has sulfur & kaolin in it.. is cheap and works! It dries up bumps or turns them into whiteheads so they can easily be popped.. it sucks everything out your skin, you can literally see it! Its my staple. I use it as an overnight spot treatment as well on big bumps.. heres a link

    I can't use the DDF because the eucalyptus oil irritates me.

    I like a 10% sulfur for oil/acne, which is hard to find in that strength in a store. I also like the high sulfur for redness issues. I am using one from Vivant, but it is now discontinued. My next mask will be this one. High sulfur, yet no menthol and eucalyptus. It may be a big much for dry skin.
