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.

Good Mask

I have always loved Origins products but was not that satisfied with this mask. I have used it several times and can not tell a difference after use.

not bad

I like the mask, I feel refreshed after I use it. I just don't know how much it is really improving my skin....

Not what I expected

Wasn't something I really needed but I tried it anyway. Worked similar to other mask I have used but could not see any real results.

Fresh and clean!

I really liked this mask. I received a small sample in my birchbox which I was surprised will last maybe 2 1/2 applications. I used a thin layer on my face and once I wiped it off my face felt very smooth and clean. I will definitely try it again- was glad to see the product page mentioned to use it after applying a hot towel to the face. It didn't mention that on the product card I received so I will definitely try that again!

Loved the idea,

Although I loved the idea behind this face mask, the product itself fell short of my expectations. I don't have sensitive skin whatsoever, but for some reason the second time I used the mask I broke out all over and felt like I had wind burn all over my face.

Just ok

I did not get this in my birchbox, but I did go out an get a sample somewhere else. I had a bad breakout after using the mask, but then I achieved clear skin. I will give this a few more tries to see if I still like it.

I really do not enjoy purchasing masks. I only ever use them when I get a sample... I do like Origins as a brand but do not think that they really do too much for my skin needs. I have mild acne that occurs once a month and this mask should be perfect but... I used it a few times and noticed no difference. For me to spend money on this I need to see something special in my skin. Otherwise it's just another product to spend money on that doesn't do anything.

This product was nice, it went on smooth and dried in like 5 minutes. It felt very tight when dried and came off easily. My skin was a little dried out after and I didn't really notice an improvement in anything, although I only used it once so far.
