ORIGINS Clear Improvement® Active Charcoal Mask

2016 InStyle Best Beauty Buys winner!

Unlike the charcoal you toss in a grill, activated charcoal—also known as 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 charcoal, it gets rids of pore-clogging impurities revealing a more radiant complexion. Still not totally convinced? Read more about its good-for-you benefits people have been using for ages.

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.

I was really excited to use a mask since it's been forever since I've got my hands on one. And when I used this one I felt I like I couldn't or wouldn't want to use any other! I love this stuff! It made my face feel fantastic!

I was excited to try this product. It left my skin feeling great. I do not use masks much, and I am not interested in using them regularly.

Alright

I have only tried the product once but I wasn't too thrilled with it, maybe because I have another mask that is similar and I like that one better. Its easy to use but I didn't notice much of a change in my skin after washing it off. I will try the rest of the sample and see if I notice anything.

Nice mask

Not as drying as I anticipated and soaked up a lot of oil. I enjoyed this sample.
