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.

Be prepared for a brighter you!

This has been my go-to mask for years! I love how clear and bright my face looks afterwards. Plus my face feels so smooth. Love it!

Love this mask...

I didn't get this in the sample box, but I have used this off and on for about 10 years. Great deep clean that isn't harsh.

Refreshes skin

I have break outs from time to time and when I do, I put the mask on! In a few days, it calms down the redness and gives my skin a smooth texture.

Effective

If you need a mask to pull up all the dirt and "gunk" from out of your pores, then this is the task master for the job. It is chock full of clay which is very drying (those with very dry skin may opt out), but it's also deeply purifying. You can use it as spot treatment in a pinch or bathe your face in a mask. Either way, this stuff works.

Love, Love, LOVE this!

I've been using this since it came out in the late 80s to early 90s and I still love it. It gets out all the dirt from deep in your pores without being overly drying. I have very dry skin and just need a little extra moisturizer after using it.
My skin always glows after I've used it!

Can't keep it out of my teenager's hands!

Don't let the color fool you, this does not smell like charcoal! I like a mask that dries and washes off rather than peels. My dry skin felt nourished, my daughter's acne prone skin felt smooth. I will be ordering this religiously, and am already ordering more Origins products.

Love this!

I love this product! I usually use it 1-2 times a week. I will be ordering this product when I run out of my sample. My face feels so clean and fresh after every use.

Just ok

I did not get this in my birchbox, but I did go out an get a sample somewhere else. I had a bad breakout after using the mask, but then I achieved clear skin. I will give this a few more tries to see if I still like it.

Cleansing Mask

I've used a handful of origins products and they are all high quality. I like this mask because of how it brightens and cleanses my skin. It is not super drying and does not get uncomfortable if you wear it longer than five minutes (and I have sensitive skin). I wish that it had an exfoliating component to the mask because I have acne-prone skin, but it there is some deep cleaning which is more than what I get from just washing my face. I would recommend this product for those with oily/combination skin.
