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.

This was a great mask, and I felt very clean and fresh after. It was easy to apply and wash off, without leaving my hands feel too gooey after

Works
Purchased

This does a nice job of deep cleaning but for my older skin I wouldn't use more than once a week in the summer and likely not at all during the colder months as it's a bit drying.

Great Mask

I use this mask once a week and it helps keep my skin calm and helps keep my oily/combo skin under control.

Great mask!
Purchased

I have heard all of the beauty gurus rave about this mask and had to try it! It is very refreshing and enjoyable to use! I really can feel the difference after taking it off. I got my boyfriend to try it as well and now he asks when we will use it again!

It's Ok
Purchased

I keep thinking that I should like this product more than I do. It does calm down my spots when I have them, but otherwise doesn't make my skin look much better. It does last forever, and the texture is smooth when going on. Taking it off can be a bit of a pain because I found that bits tend to get stuck on and have to be scrubbed off. It's just ok. I've used clay masks I like better.

Great mask
Purchased

I love this mask and use it at least once per week. It does a great job removing the gunk and you can feel it working. I can probably even bump it up to twice a week for the pores around my nose.

Finally something that works!
Purchased

Love this product! I had to use it a couple times to see results but my face is a lot smoother and my pores look smaller. After the first use I had a small "purge" where it brought some unwanted pimples to the surface, but with a week of using this product every other day my skin has never looked better. I have used a TON of different products to try to get rid of my acne and this one seems to do the trick!

Great mask

This is a great mask to keep handy. I've been using it 1-2 times a week and so far it's helping me keep my skin clean and get rid of tiny whiteheads. You have to use it regularly, you will notice a difference in the way your skin feels and looks after one use, but it won't really get stubborn pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads until after a few uses. It's easy to use and smells great and doesn't over-dry my skin, so overall, this will be my go to mask until I get something better in my box.

Good, not great
Purchased

I love Origins products. That being said, I like this mask- my skin was noticeably smoother for about a day after use. I will continue to use it happily until my bottle is empty. My issue (and reason for the three star rating) is that I have bought masks from the drug store that cost a quarter of the price and have the same effect.

Leaves face feeling nice and clean!
Purchased

Love this mask, makes my face feel so clean and definitely minimizes my pores visibly. Smells kinds funny but it's active charcoal! So I don't kind at all, not meant to provide aromatherapy, just a good deep clean!
