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.

Don't fear the color

I was skeptical of using this mask just based on its color (I've had dark masks stay in my pores before- not cute!). However, after I used it I was really pleased. No residue left and my skin is clear.

Smooth and refreshing
Sampled

This one mask was so refreshing. I could feel it drying but it did not hurt like other masks have done in the past. It visible shrank my pores and my skin felt smooth and silky after use!

Pore clearing and refreshing
Sampled

Our family just moved west into the dessert, and this mask was an amazing refreshing experience. It applied to the skin smoothly. Although I could feel it tug as it dried, it did not hurt as other masks have in the past. The mask left my skin soft, and my pores were visibly smaller after using it.

GREAT product! I can actually feel it working, which I really like. What's also great is that I noticed results immediately after just one use! I'm not surprised there's a waitlist for this product.

I really liked this, and will probably buy it. I have oily skin with megapores and this made my face look fabulous for several days after!

This is my new favorite product. I've really been into masks lately and this is by far amazing. I like the texture that it goes on as because its not too thick. You can definitely feel it working into your pores. I like the cooling effect after as well. I already purchased it again =)

Great mask! Doesn't over-dry skin.

I love this mask. It does a great job of what it claims to do. It's not too drying, but since I have a really oily forehead and dryness elsewhere, I usually put a clay mask on my forehead while using this everywhere else, as the charcoal doesn't seem to sop up the oil like clay does. The smell is really mild and I love the rich color.

Love This Brand

I have been in love with the Orgins brand for over a decade now. This mask feels great on your skin. I recently used it on a small breakout i was having and it really helped clear my face.
