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.

Oily Skin Savior!
Purchased

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
Purchased

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.

Nice & clean

My face felt so nice and clean after the first use. Not only did it feel clean but my pores looked smaller and my face was smooth. I will purchase again.

Amazing Mask

This mask is truly amazing. After the first use my skin was so soft and smooth and my pores shrunk immediately. I added it to my skin care regime and use it once a week to keep my pores small.
