ORIGINS Clear Improvement® Active Charcoal Mask

Living in the big city, we’re no strangers to clogged pores. That’s because dirt, debris, and pollution get past even the most diligent cleansing routine and bury themselves deep below the skin’s surface. Luckily, urban toxins are no match for this hard-working mask. It harnesses the purifying power of natural charcoal, ridding our skin of pesky impurities and giving us a much more radiant complexion.

Made me break out--worked better as spot treatment
Purchased

I feel like I was one of the unlucky few for whom this product just did not agree.

I started using this mask a few times in one week and in a couple days I started seeing way more new breakouts than before (and my skin had been pretty clear for a while). I took a break and waited for it to clear up and then several weeks later when I saw the beginnings of a new breakout, I gave this product another shot BUT as a spot-treatment tool (so not all over my face) and it did a really good job for treating that one area.

For people with sensitive skin, I would recommend trying it out first before buying the full product. Also, if a full face mask doesn't work, use this for spot treatment.

Origins Mask

Seems to really clear up the skin! I haven't tried it with any of its "sister" products, but it makes my skin feel clean and soft after a few uses within a week.

Love This
Purchased

I love this mask. I've been looking for products with more natural ingredients, and I knew Origins was just the ticket. I love the way this mask feels on my face - it's not too thick or cakey, it dries nicely and it doesn't flake off. I haven't been using it consistently enough to tell you if it clears up complexions reliably, but I have been using it enough to say that my skin feels soft and clean after. It's really a bargain and I'd recommend it to anyone.

Great product

Great product! Makes my face feel clean and fresh! I don't love the scent... but that's what you get with charcoal products!

Best mask ever!
Purchased

I have been using this mask now for a year and I just love it so much! I have purchased the full size product several times. A little goes a long way! Unclogs pores, smells great and leaves skin feeling smooth and rejuvenated! You really can't go wrong with origins! I love all their products! Highly recommend!

charcoal mask
Purchased

I tend to have very oily skin prone to blackheads. This mask uses charcoal to extract excess dirt and oil. It left my skin feeling soft and my pores were minimally noticeable

Do masks work?
Purchased

Ok, so I love Origins typically...And I like the idea of masks. But for whatever reason, they don't seems to make a big difference in my skin. I have plugged pores and adult acne.. I was hoping this would reduce the blackheads and appearance of pores but I haven't noticed a change.

This product is awesome. It makes your face feel like a brand new face. I really like that this product is natural because i usually don't get the desired results with natural products but with this one it totally gives you great looking skin (and more!).

My favorite face mask
Purchased

I bought this on a whim seeing its good reviews. I ADORE this mask. It really cleans out my pores and leaves my face refreshed, clean, and radiant. I highly recommend, especially to others, like me, who don't have a lot of experience with masks.

Best Face Mask to Clear/Prevent Breakouts
Purchased

I love this face mask. I use it about once a week or whenever my pores are feeling clogged or my face is breaking out. It really gets down into your pores and makes your skin feel so clean and soft. Once it hardens, i find the best way to gently remove it is to wet a washcloth with very warm water to soften the mask again so it gently washes off.
