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.

Give it a few chances..

After my first use, this mask just made my face pores look even more visible and gunky, and I was ready to toss it out. But I noticed that after using is 3-4 times during a week, my pores visibly cleared up (although did not shrink in size). Overall, it's an OK product and I actually enjoyed the tingly sensation that other reviewers have mentioned, but it's definitely not a miracle worker.

Meh

I didn't really get the hype of the charcoal mask. Maybe I should research the benefits more? I felt I had to put it on really thick and it didn't especially leave my skin feeling nice or soft afterwards.

Not much difference

It made my skin look a little fresher, but for the most part didn't affect my pores or acne, even after several uses

Origins Is Great Brand

I really like the Origins brands and have tried several products, this being one of them. It was a nice sample size, but I didn't think the product worked all that well. (I've tried it before) My son liked it though.

Like going to the spa

Love this product! After about 5-10 min the mask dries and tightens up. Washing it off feels like you're washing away all of the grit, grime, and build up on my skin.

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!
