ORIGINS Clear Improvement® Active Charcoal Mask

Living in the big city, we’'re no strangers to clogged pores. That’'s because dirt, debris, and pollution get past even the most diligent cleansing routine and bury themselves deep beneath the skin’'s surface. Luckily, urban toxins are no match for this hard-working mask. It harnesses the purifying power of natural charcoal, ridding our skin of pesky impurities and giving us a much more radiant complexion. While charcoal pulls stubborn pore-cloggers to the surface, white china clay and lecithin work together to dissolve any remaining impurities.

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.

Deep Cleaning!

This mask is wonderful before a special event, date night, or even just after a long day. It super cleans pores without being too aggressive on skin, allowing you to come out fresh faced and ready for makeup or bedtime.

I've recently discovered activated charcoal and I'm a huge fan! I'm in my late 20's and have been still continue to struggle with acne and oily skin. This mask made my face feel rejuvinated without over-drying or irritating my skin (which is the problem I've found with a lot of masks). When my sample is done, I will be buying a full size!

Felt a minty tingle. I have not used it enough to to see how effective it is. My skin was left dry. I hope to see a difference.

AMAZING!
Purchased

Absolutely LOVE this face mask. I've always had great skin, but ran into some issues the past few months. I tried everything to clear out my pores. I had little dots all over my face. ONE use of this face mask and my face had already improved tremendously. You can literally feel the mask cleaning out your pores. I will definitely continue buying this product.

Favorite!

This mask is one of my favorites. After just one use, I noticed a difference in the size of my pores. Great mask for conjested skin! It is not over drying, helps absorb lingering oils. I purchased this elsewhere, but I can't imagine not having this product in my cabinet.

I was really excited to try this new charcoal mask from Origins.I've been looking around for a product just like this one.It was smooth and creamy and not pasty at all.You can definitely feel it working.It also rinses off quite well. This product is definitely in my weekly beauty routine.

Blackhead Eradicator

While considerably less effective on deep or inflamed acne (which thanks to some unfortunate genetics I still occasionally get), this weekly mask has all but eliminated the blackheads across my nose and cheeks and significantly reduced the visibility of pores along my T-zone. Results are evident even after a SINGLE USE. Because it can be a little stinging on sensitive skin, I wouldn't recommend using it just after exfoliation or any other abrasive skincare treatment. And, to replenish the skin's moisture and prevent it from overproducing oil to compensate, make sure to apply a very hydrating moisturizer almost immediately after use. Nevertheless, highly recommended.
