ORIGINS Clear Improvement® Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores

Unlike the charcoal you toss in a grill, activated charcoal (aka 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 bamboo charcoal, white China clay, and lecithin, it gets rids of pore cloggers, environmental toxins, and impurities for smoother, clearer skin.

After reading all of the glowing reviews of this product, I was a little disappointed. It's a good mask, don't get me wrong, but it wasn't as amazing as I was expecting. I'm actually wondering whether the deep cleansing has resulted in a couple of breakouts after I used the mask. You know how when you get a facial sometimes you'll break out afterward? I think that same thing happens to me with this mask.

I've had my eye on this Origins produce but never wanted to spend the money on the full size bottle UNTIL I received the sample in my box! I use about once a week and definitely notice my skin is less pink and irritated. I use it as a mini facial, applying a hot towel, the product, letting it dry, then wiping it of with warm water.

Incredible

This stuff is just amazing. It feels like it is physically pulling the dirt out of my pores during the 5 minutes that I keep it on. It will feel tight as it dries like other clay masks but the charcoal really does something different than clay. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

Love it!

I was so happy to see this product in my Birchbox! I am such a huge fan of this mask, it makes my skin feel fresh and clean without drying it out. Once a week, this is my go to.

Leaves my face so SOFT!

I found that this stuff is perfect for reducing redness. I use it for that as well as spot treatments and it just leaves my skin leaving super soft.

Charcoal Mask

I have tried a lot of different mask. Both me and my mom loved this one. As the time goes by your face starts to feel tighter so you can actually feel it working on your face. I plan on buying this product!

As good as Glam

I am so spoiled to the Glam mask that I almost never like a similar product, but I really loved this one. Will be repurchasing and maybe even replacing my Glam mask with this.

I have been using this mask for a about a week now, and I love it! My skin definitely got worse before it got better, but that was to be expected. All of the oil was brought to the surface creating a few small blemishes, but they have cleared up and my s kin is looking great!
