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.

I LOVE this mask.

Dries quickly, smells great and really helps close open pores. I will definitely purchase the full size of this product.

I like it
Purchased

My skin felt nice and soft street using this. A little stubborn to remove but my skin felt nice and looked brighter and fresher. My pores seemed slighty smaller

Love this mask...

I didn't get this in the sample box, but I have used this off and on for about 10 years. Great deep clean that isn't harsh.

Refreshes skin

I have break outs from time to time and when I do, I put the mask on! In a few days, it calms down the redness and gives my skin a smooth texture.

Effective

If you need a mask to pull up all the dirt and "gunk" from out of your pores, then this is the task master for the job. It is chock full of clay which is very drying (those with very dry skin may opt out), but it's also deeply purifying. You can use it as spot treatment in a pinch or bathe your face in a mask. Either way, this stuff works.

Love, Love, LOVE this!

I've been using this since it came out in the late 80s to early 90s and I still love it. It gets out all the dirt from deep in your pores without being overly drying. I have very dry skin and just need a little extra moisturizer after using it.
My skin always glows after I've used it!

Can't keep it out of my teenager's hands!

Don't let the color fool you, this does not smell like charcoal! I like a mask that dries and washes off rather than peels. My dry skin felt nourished, my daughter's acne prone skin felt smooth. I will be ordering this religiously, and am already ordering more Origins products.

Love this!

I love this product! I usually use it 1-2 times a week. I will be ordering this product when I run out of my sample. My face feels so clean and fresh after every use.
