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.

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.

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.

Works
Purchased

This does a nice job of deep cleaning but for my older skin I wouldn't use more than once a week in the summer and likely not at all during the colder months as it's a bit drying.

It's Ok

I keep thinking that I should like this product more than I do. It does calm down my spots when I have them, but otherwise doesn't make my skin look much better. It does last forever, and the texture is smooth when going on. Taking it off can be a bit of a pain because I found that bits tend to get stuck on and have to be scrubbed off. It's just ok. I've used clay masks I like better.

Good, not great
Purchased

I love Origins products. That being said, I like this mask- my skin was noticeably smoother for about a day after use. I will continue to use it happily until my bottle is empty. My issue (and reason for the three star rating) is that I have bought masks from the drug store that cost a quarter of the price and have the same effect.
