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 mask, but a little drying

I've actually been using this mask for years. Any time I feel like my skin looks a little dull I use this mask and it clears up my complexion right away. The only downside is that it takes a long time to dry before you can wash it off.

I used this when I got my box and I loved it! It does dry fast and my face felt like it got a lift.

Great - oil control, blemish help
Sampled

I love this mask. I'm almost done with my first full size. I find it really helps control my oil production and helps with breakout prevention. You can feel it working. It's a little tough to get off so I always do it before a shower so I don't have to scrub my face too hard with a washcloth.

The sample i received in my birchbox was a bit small, but i do like this product. I use a korean brand that is similar to this product, but it is less than half the price!

nice

This mask dries quickly and is pretty easy to remove for a charcoal mask. I haven't noticed an improvement in my skin, however I've only used it once.

Okay, nothing amazing
Sampled

I couldn't tell a huge difference in my skin after using this mask. Feels just like any other mask. When I applied it, the product didn't feel very thick and I felt like I had to use a lot of it in just one use.

I'm sure there are better masks out there that don't cost additional money for the Origin brand.

Initially the color was a little off-putting but the scent was decent and the effectiveness of the product was definitely there. I enjoyed how it didn't try out my face too much but still left my face feeling like it just received a deep cleaning.
