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.
