Best Face Mask to Clear/Prevent Breakouts
Purchased

I love this face mask. I use it about once a week or whenever my pores are feeling clogged or my face is breaking out. It really gets down into your pores and makes your skin feel so clean and soft. Once it hardens, i find the best way to gently remove it is to wet a washcloth with very warm water to soften the mask again so it gently washes off.

Makes my skin feel soft and clean. Can take a little time to wash off. Looking forward to using it more in the future.

Great Mask!!!
Purchased

I ordered this on a whim, as I am always always looking for pore-targeted masks. As a sufferer of acne, I am desperately in need of treatments that help cleanse my far, but rid it of impurities. I am a huge fan of the Glam Glow masks, but because it is so pricey, I wanted to try something that may be similar, but for way less money. This mask left my face feeling refreshed and clean, and cleared up breakouts overnight. It was a great investment, and after only using it one time, I can tell it's going to be a new favorite!!

Great mask!
Purchased

I was searching for a charcoal product to add to my weekly face routine and decided to order the Origins mask. It works great and was easy to apply and remove. My pores looked smaller after one use. I can't wait to use it again!

Soft skin
Purchased

This is the best charcoal mask I have used. My skin always feels soft after wards without feeling too dry. The bottle will last a really long time.

Works

I find that if I do this at least once a week, and an exfoliant on another night that I have soft clear skin, like a baby's. Ok well I may not look younger but my skin feels great and it actually does look better. I tend to get white heads and have sensitive skin so I don't over do it with exfoliants. This has really helped. I can see the results for a few days after too. I don't know if this is a miracle mask for all but it works for me! I will repurchase. A lil' goes a long way and I think personal a treatment at least once a week is good.

Best face mask ever!
Purchased

I have very sensitive skin. I had purchased this mask for my mom and she had used it and said she liked it, but not much else. I used it before a wedding and it is amazing! I tend to get redness under the skin and it pulled everything out and made everything look smooth and even. Also, a little goes a long way with this product so it will last forever. I love Origins, I think they do a great job with their products!

A fantastic & economical purifying mask.
Purchased

I live in a big, humid, polluted city and as a result my skin can take a beating. This mask does a great job of purifying skin, greatly reducing blackheads, and leaving skin firmer and more radiant. I use this for several days in a row when my skin looks dull, pores are clogged or I see some breakouts coming. It always does the trick to calm everything down. I've been faithful to this mask for a couple of years. Can't imagine another product breaking us up.

Deep-cleans skin but hard to wash off

I have used this product several times and always feel like the charcoal really pulls oil and bacteria out for clean skin. It can make my skin feel really dry when it hardens, and it takes some effort to fully clean off, but I do think it improves acne.

Great

I had never tried clay masks until I received this in my BirchBox. I use this mask about twice a week to clear out my pores and it makes my face feel smooth for days. It does take a little bit to wash off, if you don't wash your face thoroughly, you'll have a bit of residue. It does sting a little as well when you have it on waiting for it to dry, but it's worth it.
