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 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
Sampled

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.

Breaks Me Out
Purchased

I really wanted to like this stuff, but I would use and saw no difference in my skin. In most cases, I found that I would have small breakouts a day or two after using instead. Could just be my skin, but won't be using again.

Love it
Purchased

I love using this as a mask. It soaks up oil without being overly drying. It is one of the best masks I've tried in a long time.

smooth skin
Purchased

Skin feels smooth and soft after use. Maybe blackheads look a little smaller?? Not as noticeable of a change in blackhead status as I wanted... I'll still use it though...

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.

Just alright
Purchased

This was my first time trying an active charcoal mask and I was super excited because I hear it's great for acne prone skin however it wasn't even an improvement over the white clay mask I picked up at the drugstore previously!

Love the brand, this product just ok

I love Origins products. However this mask was nothing special for my skin. No better and no worse than other clay types masks I have used. (My skin is normal and I don't have many breakouts. I do have some large pores around my nose). This probanly would work well for those with oily skin. I probably won't repurchase it in the future.
