Clear Improvement®  Active charcoal mask to clear pores

Draws out pore-clogging impurities for a deep-down clean.

For all skin types

When environmental toxins, dirt and debris get under your skin, its waste-filtering system gets jammed, pores get clogged, skin looks cloudy.  Nature's complexion clean-up crew gets to the bottom of skins overcast condition and clears the way for it to act its best.  Activated Charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers, White China Clay absorbs environmental toxins, Lecithin dissolves impurities.  Without all that "stuff" down there, skin "breathes a sigh of relief."

I am in my 20's and have been suffering with acne for the past few years. I feel like I have tried every product (OTC and Rx) out there for acne, but then I stumbled upon this mask. I did my research and read lots of reviews and decided to buy the product. I have very sensitive skin and I have suffered from horrible rashes from products in the past (and I was worried that this product may result in another rash), however this product does not irritate my skin at all! There is a slight tingling when it first is applied but disappears quickly. I have been using this mask 1-2 times weekly for 3 months and my acne has GREATLY improved. I have seen a significant reduction in the number of pimples I get, and IF I happen to get a blemish, it is extremely small, non-inflamed and goes away in just a few days (before I had large, very inflamed pimples that took weeks to disappear). This product is a little pricey for me (as I am still in college) but it is worth every penny to me to finally have perfect skin!

Activated charcoal is great. Black masks are not that great. Even if you rinse your hopefully dark washcloth a lot, it will still show up on anything white that goes in the laundry with it. This mask made my skin feel very clean, but would cause little zits the next day. Once I repurchased my favorite mask (ARCONA's tea tree/clay mask -- it's great, try it), I stopped using this one completely.

    Comments about Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask, 3.4 fl oz:

    I use this a couple of times a week. My daughter, (who's skin is more sensitive than mine) likes to apply it in a very thin coat because she is just getting started with masks. She usually removes after 10-15 minutes with a wet microfiber cloth. I like to be pretty generous with it, so I can have it on for 20-30 minutes and it's still wet! I also remove using a cloth. I like the microfiber over cotton because the mask washes out more easily. Overall, I'd say it really improves the appearance and softness of the skin. I don't know if it helps with visibly congested pores. My skin has been pretty clean since I got a "Clarisonic for Christmas".
    I can't say enough good about Origins products. Every item is so unique and yet so universal. I feel they have some magic formulas that work for everyone!

        Comments about Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask, 3.4 fl oz:

        I've used this product a few times now, and honestly could not tell you what it does (if anything). I have normal-oily skin with blackheads in my t-zone, and I bought this product based on the positive reviews of others with similar skin concerns. It did not work for me. I was expecting a more clay texture from a charcoal mask, but the consistency of this product was sticky/rubbery upon application. I didn't feel like it did anything to my skin and was also hard to wash off (some of that glossy/rubbery feeling stayed on my skin after washing off). My favorate affordable mask product is still the Lumene Peat Mask. I feel like it really cleans out and detoxifies my skin and tightens my pores.

            Comments about Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask, 3.4 fl oz:

            This wonderful mask cleared up the acne and irritation on my face when nothing else would. I have acne and eczema -- my skin was so stressed that I'd given up hope, and I had a sample of this. I usually obcess over ingredients, but this time I said... what do I have to lose? And put the whole sample tube on my face. After washing off the mask, my skin felt SO soft. And the next morning, without makeup, I was getting "Wow, your skin looks good! What did you do?" after being a red-faced mess with scabs and sores. Those of course weren't gone, but all of the redness and new acne was gone. I'm keeping this around to use on a regular basis from now on. You will feel it get very tight-feeling as it dries on your face -- but it's NOT drying out your skin. You'll know this when you rinse it off and feel how soft your face is. I love it!!!

                This is an over priced tube of clay. I have troublesome blackheads around my nose and this mask worked no different than the rest I have used many of which were much cheaper.

                  I have sensitive skin but am able to use this regularly without difficulty, though it does tingle initially. This stuff really works well to pull impurities to the surface of your skin for extraction and unclog your pores. As a result, you can break out after using this mask if your pores are clogged to begin with. The more regularly I use it, the less I break out after each use, because it also seems to help prevent clogged pores. So you just have to be willing to use it when you don't mind getting some break outs, because in the long run it will improve your skin and reduce acne.

                    Great product for cleaning out the pores. I would not use more than once a week as it can dry my skin out if used more frequently. It really unclogs those pores and it first you may notice some breakouts since it is bringing everything to the surface. This is temporary and will go away after subsequent usage. My only complaint is that it does not moisturize, the best of both worlds- unclogged pores and moisturized skin.
