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 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.

Not a great mask

Origins is my go•to store for face, moisturizing, eye, mask, night and day products. I bought this mask and I don't notice much of a difference when I use it. I prefer origins Drink It Up mask to this one.

Good mask, just not for my skin
Purchased

I heard so many rave reviews about this, but unfortunately I am one of those people with skin that doesn't work well with charcoal. Just found my skin to be very very dry after. The pro though is that it didn't have any bad smells, like other charcoal masks.

Like In the Movies

Wearing this mask makes me feel like I'm in a movie. Not that many masks actually LOOK like the ones you see on the screen. It applies well and it feels like it is working but I'm not sure I see results.

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

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.
