Most Helpful Positive Review My go-to mask
I never really tried masks before, but my clogged pores started creating blackheads and I tried this mask I received as a sample. After only one use, my pores cleaned up very well and all my blackheads were sitting right at skin level, waiting to come out if I pressed my nose or cheeks slightly. So, I kept using this mask every two days to clean my face, and within a week I had no more visible blackheads, and my pores look shrunk in size. This mask is amazing especially if combined with a pore strip to pull out all the dirt that this mask brings to surface- even the most clogged of pores should not need more than 5 masks combined with extractions to become perfectly clean. I don't have acne, but this mask dries the skin only slightly, so I assume acne would heal faster too. It dries quickly, too.
My only complaint is that the mask gives a slightly burning sensation when applied, but it is worth the results, and not a big deal if you are prepared for it.
For best results, exfoliate with a gentle exfoliator and take a hot bath (or just steam your face). Apply the mask and leave it at least 10-15 minutes, then rinse with warm water and apply a pore strip. If you have very bad problems, it's fine to use this mask every day or once every 2 days for a week or 2, until your pores clean up, and then go back to once or twice a week. The results will be amazing.
Most Helpful Critical Review Sensitive Skin: Beware
Bought this product because I've heard great things. Once I used it, I had a full blown allergic reaction! My skin had red inflamed spots in the area of application for 45 min after use along with a slight burning sensation. It did leave my face feeling smooth, however, I would be careful before purchasing if you are sensitive.

I love this product! It works like a charm, always clearing away oiliness and dirt. I've used other charcoal and clay type masks and they are much less effective and unreliable. Recommended.
Jan from Houston
It's good but you don't see the results the first time you use it. Apply every other day to see results.
Burns and stings horribly, and skin is irritated afterwards
ggriffith from Ithaca, ny
This mask burns horribly when it goes on and leaves skin super irritated. It hurts! I do not recommend :(

I used this mask when my skin type was different a few years ago. I'm hoping that the ingredients haven't changed much but the stuff in this bottle is not what I used a few years ago! My skin has now developed congested pores ever since I started using it again. Never will I go back to this mask.

Works great to help clear pores. Leaves skin feeling clean and purified. Made my skin bright and feel smooth. I use a skin spatula to apply and let it dry and than wash off. Very easy to use.
Second time buying this
Ava from California
I have dry skin and this is the only charcoal mask that doesn't leave my skin feeling stripped. Leaves my skin feeling deeply cleansed. I follow this up with a hyaluronic acid serum and moisturizer.
Cleans but irritates.
LVang from Harrisburg, PA
My skin felt extra clean but this mask caused my acne to flare up and little bumps too. I must be allergic.
Love!! Recommended by a friend!

Great product! Help clear my face from mask breakouts!
I would buy this product again and again

Not a hit
Sarah96 from Ann Arbor, MI
I got this in my Ipsy bag this month and was super excited to try it. Within about a minute my face was burningggg and now it's red.
Neenz from Chicago
I use a very small amount of this mask on my face 2x a week and can definitely see a difference in my pores. My acne and blackhead situation has gotten alot better. I recommend!

I have combination skin and this is my weekly mask.
My favorite mask!!
Kurstie from TX
This will always be a favorite of mine!! Buy it, you won't regret it!
Erin99 from Boston, MA
I've used this product for years and after a one year hiatus, I just bought a new tube. After using it, my face was burning, red, and very very bumpy. The itchiness has stopped after a few days but my skin is still just as bumpy for almost a week now. I used to use this product 3/4 times a week no problem and raved about how good it was. What happened?
Lei from Fairfield, Ca
Best mask I've tried so far. Tightens and brightens skin instantly. It says to rinse, but I use a hot wash cloth, let it sit on skin several minutes then repeat until it's all off. Skin feels soft, smooth and glows instantly. I'd buy this again.
Only origins product I rebuy
LucyTX from Texas
Although I love the brand and it's intention to help with the environment, their other products sensitize and irritate my skin because of all the fragrance. This product is straight forward with no essential oils to irritate my skin.
Diva from St. Louis
I've used a ridiculous amount of different masks just because I like trying different ones. But this is IT. It's the only face mask that I've actually seen results!
First Origins product I ever used. Now, I swear by ALL Origins products!!!
KD from Harlingen Texas
Overall great product. Tightens and brightens skin.
Be prepared for all the impurities to come out!
brtedybear55 from Los Angeles, CA
Use once a week! Moisturize your skin after use.
Does amazing things for the pores
Jess from Bozeman, MT
I love to use this mask once a week to really give my pores a good cinching. The mask itself is really light weight but the results are doing all the heavy lifting.
Lynz from Kansas City
Looking for a cheaper dupe of the Glamglow charcoal mask and this one did the trick. Left my skin super soft!
Thought I could trust it
KatieM3410 from Tempe, AZ
I've used this product before and loved it! Could usually see a difference in my pores before and after but this time the only difference is that my entire face is red, bumpy, and swollen. I've been wracking my brain all day trying to figure out what happened and after reading similar reviews of this mask and seeing photos that look almost exactly like mine I think I've narrowed it down! I used this mask for the dozenth time last night after having bought a new tube (because again, I loved it so much before and I ran out) so I didn't think it could possibly be the cause. As one other person on here said, you can literally see the line on my jaw of where it was and wasn't applied. Really hoping this doesn't last for weeks! My face is itchy and dry. I work very hard researching brands and trying to find only the best, most natural and safe products for my skin, it would be such a shame for all of that to go away.
Liv from Washington
I love this mask! I use it whenever I have breakouts or my skin is feeling dull. It doesn't have to be on for very long, and my skin looks so clear and also feels so soft after use. Love this! I bought a trial size to test it out a couple of times and will have to get the full size.
Love this mask
RWP from Boston, MA
This is great! I use it once a week. It feels so nice and leaves my skin feeling very refreshed.
