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.

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.

Okay, nothing amazing

I couldn't tell a huge difference in my skin after using this mask. Feels just like any other mask. When I applied it, the product didn't feel very thick and I felt like I had to use a lot of it in just one use.

I'm sure there are better masks out there that don't cost additional money for the Origin brand.

Alright

I have only tried the product once but I wasn't too thrilled with it, maybe because I have another mask that is similar and I like that one better. Its easy to use but I didn't notice much of a change in my skin after washing it off. I will try the rest of the sample and see if I notice anything.
