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

I have mixed feelings about some origins products but this is awesome! When you are finished your face feels clean and fresh with no residue!

Amazing
Purchased

I ordered this product in the full-size immediately because it was so amazing. I have oily skin, so my pores become clogged easily and with this mask, you can feel your pores becoming instantly clear. LOVE IT! It's also great for spot treatment!

Love

I. Love. This. Stuff.

I had a breakout on my forehead and my friend had a sample of this.....needless to say the next day the breakout had disappeared.

I highly recommend this product.

I love this product. It is gentle enough on your skin, while still doing a thorough job cleaning out those pores. I'm a fan!

Standard Nice mask

It's one I've tried before so it's good but I don't go out of my way to buy it since I don't have problems with clogged pores too much. It does make my skin fell clean afterwards.

Once a week cure-all!

I pride myself in having pretty good skin, so I never did much by way of skincare products, but as I get older - I'm starting to realize that a little more effort in prevention could go a long way.

This mask is amazing! It's incredibly gentle, fairly unscented (a more discerning nose might pick up some notes, but I've never really been able to smell much of anything), and works like a charm! I can really tell when I've gone for a while without putting it on vs. when I'm diligent about my once a week regiment. I often forget that I've had it on for a while, and end up with it drying on my face for about 40ish minutes (or the duration of whatever TV show distracts me). The result, after washing it off, is amazingly smooth skin. Just moisturizer and sleep leaves me waking up with softer skin and no trace of any one-off blemishes/spots that might have been popping up before.

A definite (and affordable!) buy!!

Fun to use

I feel like it helped get a deep clean. It's just fun to use because it's black! Most face stuff is pastel colors so smearing black cream all over my face was fun.
