I think the idea of charcoal is super for detox, I am just not sold on the smell. I already use a very expensive face mask that I got from Birchbox and I think I will stick with that, but if you have a tough nose, the after feeling on your face is awesome!

I like this product but I currently use another mask that I'm in love with.

This is a great mask but a little expensive for what it does...

Wonderful

I love putting a mask on at the end of a long week, and this is now my go to mask! I have CRATER sized pores (okay not really but it feels that way) and this does the trick without drying me out. Obsessed with Origins from now on

its refreshing

As far as felling fresh and clean after, I really enjoyed the mask. But it didn't really make me feel like it helped my pores that much. I have a face mask I use every so often, but this was a nice alternate.

I love how this made my face feel afterwards. It was nice but not too drying or too stinky! I liked it! Perfect timing for oily summer faces!

Fun, Different, Maybe Not the Most Effective

This is the first I've heard of a charcoal mask, and - as such - my first experience with a charcoal mask. I love, love, love masks and peels, but tend to use sulfur or clay masks. My only experience with this mask was through the June Birchbox sample, which might have been too to use for long enough to see results. I couldn't tell a huge difference from before getting two uses out of the sample. It was also a little difficult to apply - seemed almost slippery, and didn't go on evenly. The smell isn't very pleasant either. On the up side, it didn't seem to have a negative effect on my skin (no breakouts right after, no drying/flaking, not excessively greasy). There wasn't a ton of information included about what effects the product was supposed have, so it would be helpful to know more about it from the manufacturer vs. having to look into further. Worth a try, but I'm not writing home about it.

dissappointing
Sampled

I was really excited about this face mask when I opened my box this month, but I was disappointed. It had pretty poor coverage and didn't seem to make much of an impact. My skin didn't look any clearer after I used it.

Love!

This is a great product. You can feel it working, without it tingling (like other products will do). Loved the way my skin looked and felt after one use! Planning to buy the full size.

Black mask....?

I used this and didn't notice much of any difference in the size of my pores. Maybe you need to use it a few more times to see an effect.
