ORIGINS Clear Improvement® Active Charcoal Mask

Living in the big city, we’'re no strangers to clogged pores. That’'s because dirt, debris, and pollution get past even the most diligent cleansing routine and bury themselves deep beneath the skin’'s surface. Luckily, urban toxins are no match for this hard-working mask. It harnesses the purifying power of natural charcoal, ridding our skin of pesky impurities and giving us a much more radiant complexion. While charcoal pulls stubborn pore-cloggers to the surface, white china clay and lecithin work together to dissolve any remaining impurities.

Good stuff!

This was kind of weird at first, because it's apparently charcoal-based, but it was pretty good. I liked the feel of my skin after washing it off. I'm not a big Origins fan, but this was a pretty decent product overall.

very different
Sampled

This mask is definitely different then any other face masks i have tried, but in a good way. I saw results after the 2 use and I really liked it. Using a warm wash cloth on my skin for a few mins before applying the mask I feel made it much more effective.

Clay

This is a nice product but be careful if you use it for acne. The clay bleaches your bedsheets so be careful if you use it for blemishes.

Nothing Special
Sampled

I'm in love with using masks of all sorts.. I've really gravitated between (true) dead sea masks and English clay. I was excited to see this in my box... and frankly was disappointed. I don't know that it's just because I use great products already similar, but it was nothing impressive to me.

Great Purifying Mask

I love this mask! I'm always looking for something to help periodically clear my pores and tighten them to make my skin look more smooth and toned. This mask does all of those things in one highly effective step. The smell is a little off-putting, but if you can get past that, the product is very good. It does tingle a bit, but as long as you're gentle with your skin while rinsing afterward, there shouldn't be any irritation. I made the mistake of exfoliating right before using this mask once and it wasn't pleasant. But after a gentle hand-washing, this mask is the perfect thing to deep-clean and tighten your pores. Love it.

I have heard a lot of good things about charcoal masks but have never had the chance to try one so I was so excited to see it in this month's box. It definitely had a different in my skin and pore size after one use. I cannot wait to buy the full size!

Feels good
Sampled

I saw a decent change in my skin right after I used it but I think I'll have to give it a few more tries before I know for sure if it makes a different. Masques are great if you are regular about using them. This one smelled good too, which is important since you have to leave it on for awhile to dry.

great mask

I have huge pores and I usually do similar masks based on clay. The charcoal was pretty original, my skin and my pores loved it.
