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.

Amazing!

This product is Amazeballs! I tend to have blackheads on my nose no matter what I do. The Charcoal Mask dug down deep to actually clean out my pores and leave them that way.

Makes my skin look amazing
Purchased

I have used this mask twice now, and have gotten compliments the day after using it. My skin feels so much better after using it, and I never thought that it made me look that much better, but apparently it does! It feels really pampering, I think mostly b/c I use a hot towel on my face first, so it's almost like a little spa moment when I use it. It does tingle quite a bit when I put it on, which I was worried about at first, but I guess it just means it's working! My face feels so great after using, and I know that no other mask can compare (and I've tried lots).

Wasn't as great as expected

I tried this product once and wasn't as happy with it as other reviewers are. The mask felt great and calming on my face but it didn't seem to remove as many impurities as I was hoping it would. Also, my skin reacted to the mask and I was left with a couple blemishes that definitely were not there before using the mask.

Like an at-home spa!

Does this work miracles every time I use it? No not really. But do I feel like I'm at an in-home spa in those 20 minutes while I wait for it to work? Absolutely. My skin definitely feels much cleaner when I rinse it off. Seems to really get out deep down dirt and oil. I have combination skin though, and this seems like it might be a little too drying on dry skin. Great for oily, though!

I'm sure if I used it once a week every week like they recommend I would see more of a change in my skin. But I try to savor it, so I use it only about twice a month :)

My sister swears by this

She has larger-than-normal pores, and this scrub keeps them clear and her skin bright. A go-to mask any time of the year.

Not drying

This mask felt great. It didn't make my face feel dry at all. It wasn't terribly difficult to wash off either.

Does exactly what it says it's supposed to do
Purchased

I got this in my Birchbox a few months ago and just bought the full size version. I have the stingiest clogged pores and this definitely clears them out. Having oily skin, they re-clog quite often, but this mask does the trick. It is gentle yet effective. Highly recommend to people with oily skin and clogged pores!

Great but dont get caught wearing it!
Purchased

I love this mask so much. I was skeptical about masks drying my skin out or proving useless. This worked great and I immediately saw improvements in the tone and texture of my skin after my first use. However, since it is dark gray/black, its easy to terrify roommates...
