Unlike the charcoal you toss in a grill, activated charcoal—also known as activated carbon—has been treated with oxygen to remove dirt, debris, and pollution deep beneath the skin's surface. And that's just the magical ingredient in this hard-working mask. Harnessing the purifying power of natural charcoal, it gets rids of pore-clogging impurities revealing a more radiant complexion. Still not totally convinced? Read more about its good-for-you benefits people have been using for ages.
I have acne-prone skin, even still at 28 years-old. (Genetics are swell.) Anyway, I'm always on the lookout for any skincare product that will improve my acne without drying my skin out. (It's just a cruel joke to have acne and forehead wrinkles at the same time.) Anyway, I put this bad boy on last night and the first thing I noticed was the intense tingle. It feel like someone was blowing their Listerine breath on my face. (That was meant to sound more pleasant than it probably did.) It got a little intense, but once the product started to dry the intensity came down a notch. And after the rinse, I could SEE the tiny blackheads between my eyebrows had vanished. Long story short, this works. Be sure to throw a good moisturizer on overnight. You will wake up with brand new(ish) skin. You're welcome.5
I feel like I was one of the unlucky few for whom this product just did not agree.
I started using this mask a few times in one week and in a couple days I started seeing way more new breakouts than before (and my skin had been pretty clear for a while). I took a break and waited for it to clear up and then several weeks later when I saw the beginnings of a new breakout, I gave this product another shot BUT as a spot-treatment tool (so not all over my face) and it did a really good job for treating that one area.
For people with sensitive skin, I would recommend trying it out first before buying the full product. Also, if a full face mask doesn't work, use this for spot treatment.
I bought this full size without sampling it first due to the rave reviews. So much regret. I've tried using it three times and each time it makes me break out SO BADLY which is very rare for me. Right after washing it off, your skin is really soft. 12 hours later, pimples everywhere. I have pretty normal to dry skin so I was surprised by these results.2
This product initally worked well but then my breakouts started. I normally have very small blemishs or blackheads. After I used the Orgins mask, I have 4 cystic pimples.2
Not a fan of this stuff. I tried it three times and each time I broke out. My skin is sensitive to this brand2
I originally bought the mini of this (which can be dangerous, you think you are saving and then 9 out of 10 times you love the product and spend more money getting the full-size) and it lasted quite awhile for me so a huge bottle for this price?! It works wonders for my skin and I think it works for everyone. What are you waiting for? Click that button!5
So I read SO many reviews raving about this product... as well as plenty of articles about the benefits of activated charcoal for your skin. I used this mask and followed the directions exactly. It felt great on my skin and washed off well. The next day I had 2 PAINFUL blemishes on my face... almost cystic looking. I thought maybe it was a fluke and tried the mask again a few weeks later... same thing happened. I feel like this mask brought every thing to the surface of my skin and then left it there. I won't use this mask again.1
Charcoal apparently is beneficial for many things related to our body. This particular mask left my skin so smooth and clean. I was warned that it may cause a slight irritation but I had no such issues and would recommend using this as a weekly deeper cleaner as part of your skin care routine.5
This mask is great for removing excess oil and dirt from skin. I use it twice a week when my skin is looking dull and it brightens up my face instantly. It does tingle a bit on the skin, so if your skin is sensitive, this product might irritate it. Does not contain any exfoliating materials, so it goes on nice and smooth!5
I have been using Origins products for decades, and I love their masks. Whenever I feel like my skin is feeling kind of congested and gross, this mask is my go-to. My skin is on the dry side, so I can't use this mask more than every week or two, but whenever I do, my skin feels nice and clean and it clears up whatever is going on. It's also soothing and reduces redness and irritation if I have any pimples.5
