Unlike the charcoal you toss in a grill, activated charcoal—also known as activated carbon—has been treated with oxygen to remove dirt, debris, and pollution deep beneath the skin's surface. And that's just the magical ingredient in this hard-working mask. Harnessing the purifying power of natural charcoal, it gets rids of pore-clogging impurities revealing a more radiant complexion. Still not totally convinced? Read more about its good-for-you benefits people have been using for ages.
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 2.3
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!3
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.3
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.3
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.3
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.3
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.3
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.3
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.3
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.3
