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.

great!

I really like this product! I have never tried an Origins product before and was glad I received this in my birchbox! It goes on great, dries fast, and makes my face feel so great! Love!

Get some great looking skin with this mask

I have been using this mask once a week for about 6 months now, and I love it! Blackheads gone, and I can actually tell my pores are smaller. My skin is extremely sensitive and prone to breakouts with harsh products (I can't even use 1% benzoil peroxide or salycilic acid). I use this once a week in combination with a micro-exfoliator (from Ren) twice a week -- and my skin is clear!

To test it out, I stopped using it for a few weeks, and could definitely tell the difference with blackheads and some pimples, ugh. Will not be skipping this again!

I slap it on generously over my face, neck and decollete after my shower while still damp, get the rest of myself dry and moisturized. By that time it is dry and ready to rinse off. Easy!

I had this item before birchbox and I absolutely love it. If I feel like my face is breaking out I will use the mask and my skin looks great and I feel confident!!

Amazing Mask!

I'm in love with this mask. You don't need a ton of it, and when I'm done my skin looks glowing. It helps clear up both my blackheads and full blown pimples. I will continue to keep re purchasing this over and over!

GREAT facial mask!

This is the best mask I have come across after moving to the city. It really does deep clean the dirt out of your pores which is needed when you live in a big city! I'll definitely be purchasing this product ASAP!

Only time might tell...

I might be willing to splurge on this product for future use. The sample only gives enough for a one-time treatment, or maaaaybe 2 stingy masks. I get the idea that this product would give me better (and more noticeable) results with steady, repeated use. After one application, my skin feels nice and soft, but no miracles here.

This is a nice face mask for oily skin. Not too irritating.

I'm not a big fan of masks because I feel like a lot of the time they clog your pores more than they unclog them. This one, however, really worked so well. I could really feel it working as soon as I put it on. It felt tingly and cool.
