ORIGINS Clear Improvement® Active Charcoal Mask

Living in the big city, we’'re no strangers to clogged pores. That’'s because dirt, debris, and pollution get past even the most diligent cleansing routine and bury themselves deep beneath the skin’'s surface. Luckily, urban toxins are no match for this hard-working mask. It harnesses the purifying power of natural charcoal, ridding our skin of pesky impurities and giving us a much more radiant complexion. While charcoal pulls stubborn pore-cloggers to the surface, white china clay and lecithin work together to dissolve any remaining impurities.

I really enjoyed this mask. I felt a slight tingle when first applied, but it dried quickly and did it's job. I have large pores, and I noticed my pores were clearer after using. I had a few breakouts over the next few days, but I think that was because all the dirt and oils were pulled to the surface of my skin. One thing I found is that it was a bit difficult to rinse off. I had to use a lot of water and gently rub my skin to get it all off. I'll probably use a washcloth the help wipe it off next time.

This mask works so so well. I love this product so much I have already bought two more to give to friends/family as gifts. It's easy to put on and remove but you can seriously see the difference in your skin. I seriously love this product. I am so so pleased with this mask and recommend it to everyone.

Great product

I love this stuff. I am so happy to find it on Birchbox because I am in need of a new bottle, and I can spend my points towards a product I know I love.

I found this to be even more beneficial for my skin than GlamGlow, though I know everyone sings its praises. For me, this mask FELT like it was working--as in my skin was tingling all over and I could almost sense the pores becoming unblocked. I haven't experienced that with other products that boast similar effectiveness.

my favorite mask

This charcol mask is AMAZING!! Its not too harsh on the skin and leaves your face feeling so fresh and bright. It clears the skin of any dirt or blackheads and is gentle on acne. I use it 2-3 times a week, depending on how my skin feels.

Best mask for unclogging pores!

I bought this for my mom for x-mas and she tried it out immediately and she loves it, her skin type is oily combo skin with large pores. This masks helps get rid of them!

No noticeable difference
Purchased

I have used this twice now and haven't noticed that it made much of a difference. My pores still look the same and it dries my face out quite a bit. It does make my skin feel smoother that's the only thing I've noticed so far.

This product is very gentle on the skin but still effective. It goes on really smoothly and also dries fairly quickly so it is not a time costly thing to use.

Great Mask

This is a great mask. It does feel like it pulls all the bad stuff out without over drying your face. I have very dry skin. I would think this would do wonders for oily skin.

Clear improvement is right!

I've battled with my skin for as long as I can remember and, after only one use, there is a noticeable decrease in the blackheads that I battle across my T-zone and along my jawline. I'm so happy to have found this product and highly recommend it.
