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.

My holy grail!

This is the best purifying mask in the world. This has been my holy grail for two years, now, and I have two backups at any time. I love how well this cleans and how it draws out all the garbage from my pores.

Clears out the gunk
Purchased

I'm a huge fan of this mask - after you apply it it really feels like it's sucking out all the nastiness from your pores. This and a good night's sleep is like a facial.

Not impressed....

Yes, this product does leave your skin feeling soft and clean but as far as removing/diminishing blackheads, couldn't tell a difference. I have been on the hunt for something to remove/loosen blackheads for months now and sadly, the hunt is still on.

l o v e this mask

I was sold at Active Charcoals, so I bought this full-size w/o sampling it. NO REGRETS. I use this once or twice a week, and sometimes as a spot treatment as another user mentioned. Great mask for deep cleaning, and doesn't feel drying at all!

Loved this mask so I purchased it!

I was so impressed with the sample size I received in my Birch Box that I ended up buying it from Birch Box. I have acne prone skin and I felt it left my skin soft and clear after using it. I steamed my face first to open the pores then applied the mask and left it on for half an hour. I use this mask twice a week.

Pretty good
Purchased

After reading all of the glowing reviews of this product, I was a little disappointed. It's a good mask, don't get me wrong, but it wasn't as amazing as I was expecting. I'm actually wondering whether the deep cleansing has resulted in a couple of breakouts after I used the mask. You know how when you get a facial sometimes you'll break out afterward? I think that same thing happens to me with this mask.

I've had my eye on this Origins produce but never wanted to spend the money on the full size bottle UNTIL I received the sample in my box! I use about once a week and definitely notice my skin is less pink and irritated. I use it as a mini facial, applying a hot towel, the product, letting it dry, then wiping it of with warm water.

Incredible

This stuff is just amazing. It feels like it is physically pulling the dirt out of my pores during the 5 minutes that I keep it on. It will feel tight as it dries like other clay masks but the charcoal really does something different than clay. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

Love it!

I was so happy to see this product in my Birchbox! I am such a huge fan of this mask, it makes my skin feel fresh and clean without drying it out. Once a week, this is my go to.

Leaves my face so SOFT!

I found that this stuff is perfect for reducing redness. I use it for that as well as spot treatments and it just leaves my skin leaving super soft.
