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.

Definitely like the glamglow masks better. Those seem to really draw out all the dirt and yuckiness. This stuff just seems to dry out my skin

This One Works!

This mask went on easily, dried quickly, and came off easily. And it actually cleaned my skin! I've used other masks that left my face red or tingling (not in a good way), but I'm happy to report that this one just left me with happy skin. It's a keeper, for sure.

Love it!

Definitely my twice weekly miracle mask! Any time my skin looks dull or rough, this mud pack will take care of it. The only downside it it takes a lot of product to get a good layer going to make it work

Thick, Firm Charcoal Mask
Purchased

The mask is creamy, goes on easily, dries and tightens quickly, and is a breeze to remove. My skin felt so soft and tight after using it once!

One of my favorite masks

I love this stuff. Improves my skins clarity. I like that it gets really hard so i know when to take it off. Does take a little scrubbing to get off the face but it doesn't bother me. Have purchases numerous times.

Not sure what to think

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
Purchased

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...
