ORIGINS Clear Improvement® Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores

Unlike the charcoal you toss in a grill, activated charcoal (aka 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 bamboo charcoal, white China clay, and lecithin, it gets rids of pore cloggers, environmental toxins, and impurities for smoother, clearer skin.

Works great!

I have bought this product many times over the years and it always helps clear my acne and dry skin. My face feels so soft afterwards.

Where Have You Been All My Life?!
Purchased

I wanted to jump on the charcoal mask bandwagon but was hesitant to spend $$ on a 'premium' mask without know if it was for me or not. I decided to try Origins charcoal mask based on the brand and price.

All I can say is WOW! The mask was cool and tingly on my face and felt good as it dried. It left my skin soft and smooth.

The 2 things I noticed, aside from my soft skin, was that the mask left the skin on my cheeks a little tight and dry. I plan to use it weekly on my T-zone and less frequently on my cheeks.

I also found that some of the charcoal was hard to get out of my pores, but I think a little extra care in washing the mask off will take care of that.

Great Mask!
Purchased

I've been wanting to try the Origins skincare for a long time, and I finally decided to purchase this with my points! Charcoal seems to be very popular with skincare, and while I have tried some face washed with it (from other brands) I had been dying to try it in a mask as I think that would have the most benefits for the ingredient. Needless to say, Origins did not disappoint! I have used this about 3 times now and I have to say that my skin looks noticeably clearer every time. My pores look COMPLETELY clean and my overall skin looks flawless afterwards. That being said, it seems that this mask does more for reducing the excess oil, blackheads, and sebaceous filaments; but does not seem to do that much for zits that have already formed. Still a great product and I am sure I will repurchase again!

Love this!

I love that this mask doesn't get stiff and crack. Most clay/charcoal masks make your skin feel so dry! Not this one. I was having some hormonal breakouts and oily skin on my chin, I applied the mask for 15 minutes before bed and woke up the next morning feeling clear!

Fantastic!

I used this mask as soon as I received it. Works wonders for getting rid of blackheads. Doesn't dry out your skin either. Left my face feeling smooth and soft.

one of the best

Probably one of my favorite masks of all time. I have seriously oily skin and large pores and suffer from acne, but using this mask a few times a week seriously has made a difference.
