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.

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.

Interesting

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.

Great!

My skin felt very clean after using this mask. The only thing I didn't like was the way it went on my face - I didn't feel like I could get even coverage. Overall, it's a great product!

Really loved this mask. Tingled my skin, so you can really feel it working. Noticed a big difference in immediately after washing the mask off.

Pricey!

This is a very cool, effective face mask but I didn't feel like it worked any better than a face mask you can buy for $5-10.

Horrible
Sampled

Not only did it not do anything, it sank into my pores. Once in my pores, it was impossible to get out without harsh scrubbing. Really, it was hard to get off my entire face without rough scrubbing. So, not only did it not help, it probably gave me some new wrinkles thanks to the abuse I had to put my skin through to get it off.

Great Mask

I like this mask does not dry out my skin as some masks can do for my dry mature skin.
