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 mask does well at removing dirt from clogged pores. I also have a healthy glow after washing it off.

I liked the end result
Purchased

It did seem to clear my face. Leaving it soft & with less pore clogged goodness. My only complaint is that it's a bit hard to wash off. The stuff really sticks!

Great for acne

This is one of the best all-around masks for sensitive skin with acne. It sucks out blackheads and makes my skin feel clean but without missing anything. The wipes are awesome, too!!

Great Mask!

I easily get blemishes. My face was breaking out and I used this. The next morning there was a drastic difference. Very minimal redness and little to no inflammation. I highly recommend this.

Suggested to me by my skin lady
Purchased

My wonderful skin lady, Shawna, suggested I use a charcoal mask to help clear my skin . I chose this Origins product, because I knew it was a good brand and I liked the ingredients. My face was badly broke out the first time I used this mask. Afterwards, my skin felt squeaky clean and blemishes did seem to be minimized. The directions say use it once a week, or as needed. I am going to ask Shawna how often I should use it.

Good product
Purchased

Before I purchased the product I read the reviews and that's what ultimately convinced me to try it. The mask is amazing and it isn't painful. There is a slight tingle after you first put it on but nothing unbearable. I've only used the product 3 times so I won't comment on the effectiveness yet.

Great !!!

Not sure what made me purchase this product but I love it! The Origins active charcoal mask truly does clean your pores. I normally have so many clogged pores, especially on my nose-it's gross. But only after using this 2 x's, once ever week, I can see a significant difference. I'm so happy i found this.

Clean pores ftw

I did not receive this as a Birchbox sample, but rather just went for the full-size purchase because I read a lot of beauty articles praising this stuff. Used it once weekly for five months now. Verdict: largely does live up to the hype!

I feel like this mask cleans up blackheads and whiteheads more quickly than my skin does on its own.

Only reason for 4 stars, not 5: I'm not convinced it's the *miracle* product people make it out to be. I use it as part of a diligent regimen of other masks and skincare products. It's effective, but I doubt it is single-handedly responsible for my good skin days; that's definitely a tag-team effort from ALL the products I use.

Love this mask!
Purchased

This is my second time applying any face mask in my life. And my first using this particular one! Wow it was amazing the feeling of it u can feel how is actually working on your skin. When I washed it off I notice my blackheads from my nose were gone that was really nice I wasent expecting for it to really show results after first use. I don't regret buying this product and I love how I got the free trio for purchasing this item. After using this mask and the anti aging cream from the trio my face has a nice nit usable glow can't wait to see the long term results. This is a pretty good size product I feel it would last me long time if I plan to use it once a week, God's willing.
