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.

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)

dissappointing
Sampled

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.

Didn't work :(
Sampled

I'm not sure if I used it right or not, but it didn't really work for me. My skin gets oily and it is very shiny even after I wash my face thoroughly, and I thought this might help in addition to getting rid of my blackheads and clear my pores. It didn't do either, but the mask felt good anyways! I don't especially recommend this, but then again, I might have done it wrong. I don't know~ Give it a try, though :)

Not my favorite

I didnt like this much; I have tried many others that I prefer like Kiehls or Lush love lettuce. I just didnt think this was as effective as many others.

Not Overly Impressed

I tried this mask, and don't have any reason to jump up and down about it. My face felt clean after wearing it, but there was nothing special, and I wouldn't wear it over my current mask.

Feels great but....

I love how this mask makes my face feel but I'm not sure it gives the promised results. It doesn't help already existing blemishes and I'm not sure it prevents it. I use it weekly.

Can't tell it's doing anything
Purchased

Is it working? I couldn't tell ya. I may not be using often enough... but I haven't noticed any change in my blackheads. And they are pretty bad. This is pretty easy to use, and I like this brand.... just not sure it's worth it.

It's okay

I really liked using this. It felt luxurious on my face and I used it twice a week for a month. However, I don't think it really helped to clear up my acne or lighten my scars. I wouldn't purchase it full price.

Good
Purchased

I'm a big ORIGINS fan, and am usually really impressed by how well its products work and the high-quality ingredients it uses. I've heard a lot about the benefits of charcoal in masks, etc and was looking forward to seeing real results in my skin from the mask. This is a good mask, but for the price and size, I don't think it's the best on the market. I think it's definitely good and likely beneficial, but for the price/quality/amount, I'm not sure it's the best value or most effective. Certainly a good product with high-quality ingredients. I think I was just looking for a little bit more.

Charcoal mask
Purchased

I purchased this mask months ago and hardly use it because the few times I have my skin unfortunately gets irritated. However, I do like the texture and size of the product.
