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.

Very relaxing, not over drying mask. Leaves your skin feeling bright and healthy. Great for a relaxing bubble bath! Definitely recommend

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!

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.

Love this mask

I kept hearing how great this was from friends, in magazines, etc. and decided I needed to try it. I LOVE IT. I actually use it as an overnight spot treatment instead of a mask, and it helps noticeably diminish zits while I sleep. I bought the small size, and using it as a spot treatment rather than an all-over mask means one tube lasts a long time.

I love facial masks! This product left me feeling clean and fresh. There was slight burning when it was drying on my face, but no redness afterwards. The 3rd time I used it the burning went away. I would buy this, it seemed to work well. Got a few scares out of the roommates too ;)

huge difference!
Purchased

Since I've turned 27 my skin had gone bazurk! I have tried so many different masks, creams, gels. Nothing has kept the breakouts at bay... Until this mask. Once or twice a week and I've been astonished by the change in my skin's appearance and texture!

This has worked a lot better than another brand of face mask that I used. I definitely love the way my face feels after this!

Trying not to overuse this...

I am OBSESSED with this mask. I tend to be on the dryer side, especially as the cold weather starts to move in, but this mask makes my skin feel clean and smooth. I also immediately notice a difference in the size of my pores after use. Can't get enough!
