ORIGINS Clear Improvement® Active Charcoal Mask

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.

So heard rave reviews about charcoal masks and decided to try one. Weird putting a smelly black product on my face. Left it on my face for a while because it was suppose to dry on my face and did not. I ended up washing it off and saw no difference and had to wash my face.

Best Mask Ever!

This has been the best mask I have ever tried. I have tried multiple---clay, charcoal, green tea, gel, sheet masks. I luckily don't have any strong facial skin concerns, and this worked very well. Easy to apply, you can feel it working, smells good. Definitely recommend!

smooth skin

Skin feels smooth and soft after use. Maybe blackheads look a little smaller?? Not as noticeable of a change in blackhead status as I wanted... I'll still use it though...

One of the best masks available

One of my favorite Origins products. Both my husband and I use this and love it. Purifying and cleansing without drying! And, the smell is sooooo yummy!

Great charcoal mask

I've used this mask for years, and it's great. I definitely see a decrease in breakouts after using it. While I don't like it as much as the Boscia black peel off mask, I think this is a much better value, since one container lasts for awhile. Because this isn't a peel off mask, it's better used right before showering so you can scrub it off in the shower.

Amazing mask for my acne prone skin!

I was interested in trying out this mask for a while, and was hesitant because I'd heard that is can be really drying, and could break you out since it draws out impurities that much. I tried to follow steps like a spa treatments, and it really helped.
Some tips:
1.Definitely steam open your pores up to helps it draw grime out completely.

2. Pop a moisturizer on after, or in best case scenario follow it with a hydrating mask. I tried it with the Fresh Rose Mask after, and my skin looked hydrated and ultra clean afterwards.

Love this mask!

I got this as a sample and will definitely be buying the full size when I run out. I love how effective yet gentle it is on my skin.

Great job
Purchased

I'm not much of a mask fan so wasn't expecting much from this. But I love it! It really does make my skin feel so much cleaner. I'm older with combination skin and this works like a dream without being too drying or too moisturizing.

Wish I had more!

I actually got a couple sample tubes of this from the Origins section in a Macys. I really wish it was cheaper so I could by more.
It left my face feeling very soft.
