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.

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
Purchased

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!

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.

I was surprised with how smooth my skin felt after I used this! I haven't used any Orgins skin care before and I was really happy with it!

Amazing product

I didnt think something so icky looking, would work so well. I have used a ton of masks, and this one by far surpasses them all. My skin felt amazing!
