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.

Awesome cleanser!

This mask goes on thick and deep gray. Definitely feels like it's working. It hardens after a few minutes and does its magic. Feel refreshed and clean after.

Love!

This mask goes on smoothly and I can noticeably tell a difference in my skin after 15 minutes. My skin feels tight and smooth and clear! Will definitely buy again.

Cooool!!!
Purchased

I love how this mask feels cool and tingly on my face and the texture of the mask. I usually use a clay mask (100% clay) which works fine but I like this mask much better because when it dries on my face it doesn't crack and get crumbly like 100% clay does and the texture is so smooth.

Love the brand, love the product!
Purchased

ORIGINS itself is an awesome brand who knows what they're doing, so when I saw they had a charcoal mask I need they could do me no wrong!
Charcoal masks are thee absolute best solutions to clearing out your pores from the dirt and toxins that buildup. It's like it sucks it out and makes way for your skin to breathe! I combine this with a great hydrating moisturizer afterward since my skin is so dry!

One Time Black Face is OK
Purchased

Wearing black face today is frowned upon, but in this case I highly recommend it. The stuff felt awesome, went on good and seems to work well. As I said it gives you total black face so watch out answering the door. It also can be messy so watch that white furniture until it dries. Dried super taught, felt good. Active charcoal works by trapping things in tiny crevices so I don't think that aspect does very much as there is no direct flow for it to cleanse. Packaging is ok.

The Perfect Deep Cleanser!

This product is not only fun to apply, but it actually works. I have worked for several beauty supply companies and brands and nothing works like this product!

Deep cleansing and refreshing
Purchased

I gave this mask 4 stars instead of 5 because it took a little longer than I would have liked to see results, however that being said, the formula is gentle enough to use fairly frequently so I suppose I could have sped up the results process if I'd known that ahead of time. Overall I like the feel and consistency of this mask. Once I'd used it a few times I noticed a definite improvement in the look of my skin, and if I start to notice a breakout in between applications (I use this 1-2 times a week on average) I can easily do an extra mask without drying out my skin. Once dry this mask feels very tight, but I guess that just means it is doing its job! After removing, my skin feels smooth, very fresh, and most of all HYDRATED, which is excellent. I would recommend this mask to anyone who gets breakouts like I do, this helps to keep pores clear and in check.

effective

I love this product! I have very sensitive skin and cannot use any strong astringents or chemicals. This product was effective, but uses natural products so it did not effect my skin! Will be reordering.

Use this on a regular basis
Purchased

I bought this based on all of the posted reviews, and it did not disappoint. I use it at least 3 times a week- mainly on my t-zone. It's a generous size and will last me a long time.

Charcoal mask
Purchased

I purchased this mask months ago and hardly use it because the few times I have my skin unfortunately gets irritated. However, I do like the texture and size of the product.
