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.

smooth

I was surprised with how smooth my skin felt after I used this! I haven't used any Orgins skin care before and I was really happy with it!

really liked this product

My face felt so smooth after using this product. I am definitely considering buying the full size version of this product. I was also impressed that the sample size lasted for three uses.

Not too visible a difference

Maybe over time with more frequent use, this has more noticeable results. Post-mask always feels good, but not sure how long that lasts

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.

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.
