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 below 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.

AMAZING! Best. Mask. Ever.
Purchased

This is, hands down, the best facial mask I've ever used. As an experiment, I went to my fave local spa and got a facial... then compared it to my results when using this twice a week. Origins Charcoal Mask was better! The charcoal completely cleans out my pores, which used to be huge, and now they're absolutely tiny. Love, love, love this mask. Doesn't dry out my skin and, when I'm done, my face is completely smooth. (I always moisturize after, however.)

If you're looking for a cleanser with similar miracle effects, try Shea Terra Organics Rose Hips Black Soap Deep Pore Facial Cleanser. I just got it in my May box and it's like this Charcoal mask in cleanser form. Doesn't dry-out my skin -- But don't use either of these products every day!

My new Go-To Mask!
Purchased

I LOVE THIS MASK! I have dry skin, but am prone to breakouts (I know, awful). I use this mask once a week on my whole face and spot treatment on my break outs overnight as needed. Obviously, this is going to dry out my skin a little but, but I have never experienced a mask that so well cleans out my pores and reduces the size of a pimple with just one use. It's a permanent product in my collection!

Great exfoliation

This charcoal mask exfoliates and leaves my skin feeling refreshed and soft. Using it once or twice a week did wonders for my complexion.

Good stuff

A really nice mask that makes my face feel very smooth and clean afterwards. Goes on silky and washes off easily once dried. Not sure if im buying into the whole charcoal thing just yet, but whatever is in this bottle is nice and I am enjoying using it twice a week.

Didn't work for me
Purchased

Others seem to love this product, so I took a leap and bought it. I wanted to like it, but really I just didn't see any results -- who knows, maybe my perfect skin didn't have any impurities?! My face did feel great after applying, but no visible effects afterwards. Also, once it dries it is surprisingly hard + annoying to actually get off your face.

Refreshing, but no effects. Tried it on my boyfriend too, whose skin tends to collect dirt + black heads (I actually bought this thinking it would help him)… haha but we couldn't see much of an impact there either. Darn.

Amazing!

I have had this mask for a couple weeks now, but i just tried it for the first time and i have to say, i'm completely blown away! its a scary color at first, but it dries pretty quickly and right after i used a warm, wet cloth to wipe it away, it was soft immediately! i recommend this product for sure! very deep cleaning

Great mask!
Purchased

I loved this sample that I received in my Birchbox! It feels like it pulls out all the dirt and grime in your pores and leaves your skin feeling clean and refreshed. Just went ahead and purchased the fullsize of this product and can't wait to get it in the mail!

Good solid product
Purchased

Dries quickly and leaves skin feeling smooth. I am not giving it a higher rating because I don't find it any better than other masks I have tried and do not notice any more radiance in my complexion.
