ORIGINS Clear Improvement® Active Charcoal Mask

Unlike the charcoal you toss in a grill, activated charcoal—also known as activated carbon—has been treated with oxygen to remove dirt, debris, and pollution deep beneath the skin's surface. And that's just the magical ingredient in this hard-working mask. Harnessing the purifying power of natural charcoal, it gets rids of pore-clogging impurities revealing a more radiant complexion. Still not totally convinced? Read more about its good-for-you benefits people have been using for ages.

but it doesn't do anything miraculous. i like how my skin feel afterwards and am happy that it doesn't irritate my super sensitive skin. however, i bought it bc i was hoping it would help clear out some clogged pores i have in the t-zone area and i haven't noticed that it made any observable difference.

Leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean!

This mask makes my skin feel incredibly clean and purified. And it dries relatively quickly so I'm not waiting around all night. The next morning my skin always looks a bit brighter. The only reason I gave it four stars is because it does tend to give my skin a burning sensation as it dries, and leaves it a bit red. I only use it at night, not before going out somewhere because of the reddening effect. But I do have slightly sensitive skin, so it probably wouldn't affect everyone like that.

Good for oily skin

It cleans your face well. I have oily skin and it really helped with that. Also the scent is great and relaxing.

I use this mask any time my skin is feeling oily. It works so well! I usually put on a couple of layers so that my face is the same color as the bottle and it takes about 20 minutes to fully dry on. I use a hot towel to get it off because it is a little difficult, but my skin feels smooth and back to balanced after use.

After the first use my pores were almost completely clear! It makes my skin soft, and I have not had nearly as many breakouts as before. Highly recommended!

OBSESSED

I am obsessed with this product! I love the way it feels on my skin, I use it once a week right after I get out of the shower and I see such a huge difference in my skin! It is smoother, my acne is smaller the next day, and my acne scars look lighter! Best mask I have ever used.

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.
