ORIGINS Clear Improvement® Active Charcoal Mask

2016 InStyle Best Beauty Buys winner!

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.

Wonderful Product!

To start, just about every Origins product is fantastic! This one however is amazing! I have a sample size and it is wonderful! I can tell a major difference in my pores from using this! They are no longer clogged which is wonderful! Charcoal products in general are amazing. That is why many Asian beauty product lines have charcoal!

Ready for my second

This is a must have for enlarged pores. It really helps minimize pores and even helps your skin feel tighter when you wash it off.

Glowing!
Purchased

I love this product! I just used it for the first time and am already hooked. It cleans out your pores so easily, which is so necessary for me since I work in the city. It also leaves your skin glowing and super soft! I would recommend 100% and will buy it again.

A must have!

I got this when the GlamGlow mask was sold out and I am SO glad I didn't wait for the other one to come back. This mask is amazing, my pores look smaller and the congestion on my nose clears up instantly. I have oily skin and I like to use this twice a week after cleansing to pull out the deep down gunk. I will never try another product.

I love this mask!
Purchased

I've tried quite a few masks but Origins just did a great job with this one. I love that its charcoal, my biggest problem is clogged pores, no my face wasn't clogged pore free afterwards (it never is) but my face felt so soft and I felt like it loosened all the gunk that was in my face. Smelled nice, didn't hurt too bad when it dried and your face gets stiff, washed off nicely.

AWESOME!
Purchased

This is one of the best masks I've tried. I use it a few times a week and absolutely love it. The package has PLENTY of product in it, so for the price it is totally worth it. The charcoal is super effective in clearing out your pores and I notice the difference in my skin after just a few uses.

Makes pimples shrink instantly

This face mask is fantastic. I have sensitive skin that turns red easily. When I first apply the mask, there is a slight tingling feeling on spots like my nose and chin. I assume it is because this skin is more sensitive. Other reviews made it seem like it burned but it doesn't. When I take off the mask my skin is smooth, pimples are much smaller, blackhead are gone, my pores shrink, and my skin isn't dried out. I bought the smaller pods from another store but I want to full size now!

Active Charcoal for the Win

This stuff is amazing! As of lately, I've been really struggling with blackheads on my nose. After trying everything, I turned to this product and I started seeing results after 2-3 uses. If you have sensitive skin, try not to leave it on for so long and only do the mask 1-2x a week!
