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.

Great mask for breakout prone skin

Great face mask. I have delicate and very oily skin that's very breakout prone. I've been using the charcoal mask weekly and I've noticed much clearer skin. The mask hasn't been irritating in any way. I recommend it for anyone wanting clearer skin.

Buy it

I have crazy oily skin, so clay mask are my thing. Some sting. Some burn. Some smell funny.

This mask is perfect. There is no burn, no stinging, no crazy dry time. It sucked out oil like a vacuum leaves my skin feeling soft smooth and significantly less oily . I love the ease coupled with the result. Amazing stuff.

two thumbs up

this is perfect for my acne prone skin. it dries out the oil and makes my skin feel clean and refreshed. I don't really care for the smell but it washes off so that is not a major issue

Fresh and clean!

I really liked this mask. I received a small sample in my birchbox which I was surprised will last maybe 2 1/2 applications. I used a thin layer on my face and once I wiped it off my face felt very smooth and clean. I will definitely try it again- was glad to see the product page mentioned to use it after applying a hot towel to the face. It didn't mention that on the product card I received so I will definitely try that again!

smooth and soft

I love this mask! It feels smooth and cool going on and leaves my skin that way too. Dries quickly and doesn't irritate or over-dry my skin.

Cleared a pimple overnight!

I love this product and will be buying the full size version. I used it on a pimple that's as forming, went to bed and it was all but gone the next morning. Love it!

Loved it

I never usually do facemasks because they tend to make me break out, but I decided to try this anyway. It was very easy to use and the next day I got a number of comments on my skin "glowing". I would definitely recommend this product.

Clean feeling and soft skin

I was pleasantly surprised by this charcoal mask. It left my skin feeling clean and fresh after the first use. I will say, to cover your whole face with the charcoal, I had to use a little more than I usually am able to get away with while using a mask, it doesn't spread out as easily as other masks. But the results were worth it. I'll probably be buying a full one of these after I've used my sample all up.

Pretty Darn Good

I have used this stuff in the past and it really does seem to pull out all impurities of my skin. My skin feels so soft afterwards.... would definetly recommend to people who tend to have periodic breakouts.
