ORIGINS Clear Improvement® Active Charcoal Mask

2016 InStyle Best Beauty Buys winner!

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.

Wow!

I'm not big on clay masks but this one was different to me. My pores felt so clean after using this.

great mask

This mask is gentle but really works deep down to soothe skin and get out redness. Origins products are all-natural and never harsh on the skin. They carry a wide range of products for all skin types yet the brand is frequently overlooked because they do not advertise heavily. Great product.

tightens nicely
Purchased

I use this mask about once every week or two just to tighten my skin and hopefully clean out my pores a bit more. I have acne-prone skin which gets very oily and very dry at once. While this doesn't seem to really help my acne I have seen some improvement in texture and diminishing my pores. ORIGINS makes some great stuff.

Amazing blackhead clearing mask

I have oily skin, and like most oily-skinned humans- I get black heads on my chin, foredhead, and my NOSE. Not cute, at all. After reading tons of reviews about the Origins Charcoal Mask, I knew I had to try it. I used it exactly how it was recommended, and I am in LOVE. I know this sounds gross, but if you're one of those people that actually enjoy getting the gunk out of your face, you are going to freak when you try this product. Some amazing science happens and allows all the "yucky" to rise to the surface of your pores, creating an easy out-literally. This is a new staple in my skin-care routine, and I will be repurchasing this until the end of time.

Works Great! A lot of people use it too!

I got this stuff as a sample and really enjoyed it. Some masks overdry my skin, but that was not an issue with this product! I also went to visit a friend a few weeks ago and she had it too, and said she heard about it from everyone at work. It is definitely a popular item!

Refreshing!

I love the cool tingling feeling I get as the mask dries. Even better is after washing it off my skin feels refreshed, looks bright, and feels super soft. Use 1-2 times weekly and you've got it set!

Pretty good!
Purchased

This mask leaves my skin super soft and fresh. I was worried about the weird gray color and being made from charcoal, but not to worry! It smells fine and smooths on nicely. I just bought it from BB this past month and plan on purchasing again when I run out!

Tingling sensation!
Purchased

This mask is amazing! You can feel it deep-cleaning your pores as soon as it's on your face. Perfect for getting rid of that excess dirt and oil and helping to minimize pores and imperfections.
