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.

Not for me.

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)

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.

No noticeable difference
Purchased

I have used this twice now and haven't noticed that it made much of a difference. My pores still look the same and it dries my face out quite a bit. It does make my skin feel smoother that's the only thing I've noticed so far.

I think that this is an alright face mask, however I did not see really much significant improvement in my pores and skin.

Clay Mask Task

So first I cleansed my face and allowed to dry. Then placed the mask on using a face / foundation flat brush . it went on smooth and is tingly. Only issues removing. I used a steam towel (white) and wiped it off, but face was left with green tint. Also rewashed face but did not help. So when i put on my moisturizer, it turned green. I stopped being green after day 2.
