Nature's complexion clean-up crew clears the way for skin to act its best. Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores helps flush out environmental toxins, dirt, and debris that can clog pores and cause skin to look dull-leaving the complexion clarified, refreshed, and healthier-looking. Bamboo charcoal removes excess oil that could lead to blackheads, white China clay absorbs environmental toxins, and lecithin dissolves impurities.

      I got rashes all over my face after using this product. I generally don't have sensitive skin but this product brought out the worst in me. I wanted something to help with blackheads.

      Favorite mask!

      Comments about Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores:

      This is my favorite mask! Leaves you feeling fresh with a very soft face. I can definitely tell the difference in my skin, my pores are clear of any debris. I use it 1-2 times a week, depending on what's going on that week.

      Worth the money

      By Elena

      from Charleston, SC

      Comments about Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores:

      This mask is great! It's one of the main products that has really whipped my skin back into shape. I use this mask about twice a week. I've definitely seen a difference in pore size & it really helps with the black heads in my T-Zone!! I don't like using the charcoal mask you peel off, I feel like they are too abrasive. Especially, if you have sensitive skin. So, this is a great alternative & works better in my opinion. I recommend buying the travel size first to see if you like it, it actually lasts for a handful of uses.

        I had a sample of the Dermalogica charcoal mask and loved it. It is quite expensive however so I opted for the Origins mask to save some money. The Origins mask is ok, nothing special and definitely lacks the Wow of the Dermalogica mask. I liked the Dermalogica mask better because it has exfoliation granules in it and my skin felt nicer after using it compared to Origins. While I don't dislike the Origins mask, I will be spending more for the Dermalogica when this tube is empty.

        LOVE it

        By jack

        Comments about Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores:

        This mask does wonders for me! It doesn't pull out "gunk" like a pore strip, it kinda dissolves the impurities. I have been using this product for around 6 months, when I ran out for about a week my blackheads got awful. So of course I went out and purchased another bottle. I cannot give this wonderful product enough praise!

        Comments about Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores:

        I was actually impressed by this product. I bought it because I heard such good things about it online, and my pores needed some serious help! I cleansed, exfoliated, and then put this mask on. At first it burned kind of more than normal and then tingled and dried within 10 minutes. I have really sensitive skin and KNEW it was going to turn my face beat red because everything makes my face red but to my surprise my face wasn't red at all except for a bit in my T-area. I was shocked. I also had a stubborn pimple which the mask dried out and made it much smaller which made me happy. My pores look a tad bit smoother but this was only my first time trying it. It also didn't dry my face out at all which I expected. My face feels smooth and moisturized before I even put my moisturizer on! I can't wait to see my results after a few more times of trying this!

          Great

          Comments about Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores:

          Honestly I've never found any product that truly helps me out with my black heads. Hands down worth every penny, for my skin it has done WONDERS!!!! I'd recommend this to anyone struggling with blackheads! I read somewhere online that you're suppose to rub off the mask with warm water and that's exactly what I do and I see a change in my skin right away.

            Comments about Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores:

            Listen. I'm 26. I've had acne since I've had shoelaces and I'll have acne until I'm cold dead. I've used a lot of products and especially a lot of drying/acne masks and this is by far the best I've come across. When I feel the usual wave of an oil induced breakout approaching I slap this on and I can legitimately see and feel a difference for the next couple of days. No product is a miracle worker but I have genuinely found a hard worker in this tube.

            Do not overuse. I usually only have to grab it once a week.

            I have oily skin, and it took me years to admit it. Finding products that actually help keep it under control is a blessing.
