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.

Clear pores!

I loved this mask! So many products claim to clear pores and fall short. This one really does! I only got a few uses out of my birch box sample but its definitely something I'll look into purchasing. Best mask I've used in a while!

A mask that will Join my aresal

I was pleasantly surprised by this product. I felt clean but not dried out. I dislike the masks that make my face feel so dry like it's going to make my face crack.

I love my ORIGINS mask! My oily skin looks so nice and clean for days after using this. My pores appear smaller and are so so clean!

left my skin looking great

This went on much like a clay mask. Upon removal, my skin looked brighter and was very soft. I liked the outcome with a lot less harsh chemical treatments that give the same results.

good mask
Purchased

I like this mask, it makes my skin feel super clean but not dry like other masks do. The charcoal really purges your pores.

Truely works
Purchased

I have always had large clogged pores and finally with this product I have found something to clean them out and reduce their size. Even after 2 uses I have seen a huge difference in my skin. Origins never fails, thanks!

feels very cleansing

This really cleans out my pores and makes my skin feel clean and fresh! It also has helped with my breakouts.

Very refreshing

I love this product! This mask does feel very thick and tight when you put it on...but after I wash it off, my face feels amazing. It always feels so light and refreshed. I can tell that it is really deep-cleansing, without making me break out, which is what a lot of other products do. I will definitely use this product again!

Great, great, great

My blackheads have decreased substantially. This product is worth it. My skin is also less shiner. It does burn a little at times after application. But only mildly

Disappointing

I don't know if I'm using this product wrong or what, but it does nothing for my skin. Maybe I'm not using enough of it, or maybe I'm not leaving it on long enough; but I can't feel it working at all, and there's no noticeable change in my pores afterwards. I've used this product once a week for at least a month, and I'm truly disappointed. There are other Origins products that I love (like VitaZing and Checks & Balances), but this is not one of them. Won't be buying it again.
