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 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.

Oh My
Purchased

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.

Not impressed....

Yes, this product does leave your skin feeling soft and clean but as far as removing/diminishing blackheads, couldn't tell a difference. I have been on the hunt for something to remove/loosen blackheads for months now and sadly, the hunt is still on.

Disappointing

I don't know if I'm using this product wrong or what, but it does nothing for my skin. Maybe I'm not using enough of it, or maybe I'm not leaving it on long enough; but I can't feel it working at all, and there's no noticeable change in my pores afterwards. I've used this product once a week for at least a month, and I'm truly disappointed. There are other Origins products that I love (like VitaZing and Checks & Balances), but this is not one of them. Won't be buying it again.

Broke me out

Not a fan of this stuff. I tried it three times and each time I broke out. My skin is sensitive to this brand

Doesn't do anything for me
Sampled

I've owned this product before and it didn't do anything for my skin. It just dries it out.

Not for me.
Sampled

The mask was grainy in texture, but applied rather nicely. However, I did not notice any change in my skin. This could be because I was using a sample and could make it part of a regimen.

Didn't quite work

This is supposed to unclog pores, but it made my oily skin break out. Won't be repurchasing

Didn't do much for me
Sampled

I have oily/acne-prone skin, so I'm always looking for a product to help combat my (embarrassing!) adult acne. Unfortunately, this mask didn't really do anything for me complexion-wise, and actually caused my skin to freak out and break out the next day (I doubt this was the product's fault, though. my skin is really sensitive to new products)

I was really excited about this face mask when I opened my box this month, but I was disappointed. It had pretty poor coverage and didn't seem to make much of an impact. My skin didn't look any clearer after I used it.
