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.

I can feel the difference after using this mask. I've tried several others and usually they burn my eyes like crazy, this one doesn't do that. I like to follow it with a scrub.

Deep clean feeling
Purchased

Like the texture of this product dries quickly and in just 10 minutes this mask purifies the skin without drying it out. Love it!

Great mask for weekly use

This mask makes my skin feel so clean and rejuvenated after using it. It also isn't too drying and it doesn't make my face red or sting. I have very sensitive skin, so this kind of charcoal mask is hard to come by.

Great mask if you have blackheads
Purchased

This mask draws out my blackheads better than anything I've used. It also makes my skin very soft. I try to use it a few times a week, but even once a week is good enough. I love the results from this mask.

Perfect For My Skin
Purchased

I love charcoal products, so I was so happy this one is amazing. It left my skin hydrated and smooth. It does a good job removing the very hard to get dirt in my skin.

Like it, not sure of its efficacy.
Purchased

I have used this mask weekly since I ordered it. It feels great and leaves my skin feeling super soft. However, I am not really sure how great it is at drawing out the "gunk" from my pores. I have not noticed a difference yet but, will keep it up.

Great mask
Purchased

This really helps to squeeze my pores so I can clean them out. I have pretty dry skin in the winter and I'm still able to use this every other week or in certain spots without trouble. I love it!

Gave me a bad break out!

I got this one in my monthly box last month. I am hesitant to try masks in general because I have super sensitive skin but I like origins and I had heard good things. Immediately after trying it, I broke out very badly. I gave it a couple of weeks and tried it again, thinking perhaps it was something else I did. Same results, bad breakout. If you have sensitive skin, run away from this product! Very disappointed!

Perfect Mask
Purchased

This is the best mask I have ever used. It quick and easy yet makes my skin feel extra soft. It is perfect after a long day or if my skin is feeling oily and needs a quick boost. It is also a very reasonable price. Definitely a customer for life!
