ORIGINS Clear Improvement® Active Charcoal Mask

Unlike the charcoal you toss in a grill, activated charcoal—also known as 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 charcoal, it gets rids of pore-clogging impurities revealing a more radiant complexion. Still not totally convinced? Read more about its good-for-you benefits people have been using for ages.

I typically love Origins products, but this charcoal mask was not as effective as I wanted it to be. The texture didn't facilitate absorption into my pores the way I was expecting. It was a little too runny for a mask; I like thicker ones that soak in over a (usually) longer period of time.

I have pretty sensitive skin, and this stuff does not irritate it. My skin feels so clean and smooth after using the mask.

Perfection!

I have very oily skin and this mask took the shine right out! It leaves my skin with a matte finish without drying it out, and also feels incredibly smooth and clean. Love!

I had been wanting to try a charcoal mask after reading the great reviews. I used this product, the day I received it in my Birchbox and multiple times since then. I love it and I have clear skin to prove it!

I only used this product once (the sample) I liked how my face felt afterwards but I only used it once so I don't know if I will purchase again because I didn't see anything big improvement from what I already use on my face

This product was nice, it went on smooth and dried in like 5 minutes. It felt very tight when dried and came off easily. My skin was a little dried out after and I didn't really notice an improvement in anything, although I only used it once so far.

I love this product. It's difficult to find a great face mask and this definitely fits the mold. If you want fresh, clean, great feeling skin this is a product for you!

I freaking love this mask. I can't stop raving to all of my friends about this. I've used it twice and my skin has improved drastically over night with just the use of this. This is definitely my new go-to mask for a facial-pickmeup!
