ORIGINS Clear Improvement® Active Charcoal Mask

2016 InStyle Best Beauty Buys winner!

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.

GREAT!
Sampled

This was such a great product, and the sample size was perfect (enough for two masques). I loved the way this made my skin look and feel, and it cleared out my pores in no time. I never knew they could look so small and clean. Especially great for blackheads on the nose.

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 like!

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
