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." 

 

Blemishes form when impurities, excess sebum, dead skin and bacteria become lodged in the pores, triggering an inflammatory response that causes redness and swelling. Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask gets to the root of the problem, addressing skin congestion effectively with every use. White china clay, activated charcoal derived from bamboo ashes, and lecithin draw out and break up clogs to leave skin deeply purified. With regular weekly use, the mask may help reduce breakouts, diminish the appearance of pores and eliminate blackheads.

Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask allows you to relax and pamper your complexion while you address signs of skin congestion. The luxurious mask is easy to use all over the face and should be applied after using a warm, moist towel to loosen clogs. Then, you let the mask dry completely and rinse it away. You can expect improvements in the clarity and appearance of your skin after just one use.

Manufactured with methods that minimize environmental impact and packaged in an eco-friendly inverted tube, Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask is friendly to the earth and to your skin. The formula contains glycerin to hydrate the skin and avoid over-drying the complexion the way that some purifying masks can. The purifying mask can be used safely on all skin types, but it is especially ideal for oily and blemish-prone complexions.

Water (Aqua), Myrtus Communis Leaf Water (Myrtle), Kaolin, Bentonite (CI 77004), Butylene Glycol, Montmorillionite, Polysorbate 20, PEG 100 Stearate, Charcoal Powder, Xanthan Gum, Lecithin, PEG 150 Distearate, Propylene Glycol Stearate, Sorbitan Laurate, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol Laurate, Simethicone, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexl Glycerin, Hexylene Glycol, Trisodium EDTA, Dehydroacetate Acid, Phenoxyethanol

Once a week or as often as needed, open pores with warm, moist towel and layer mask on.  Allow to dry, rinse well.  Watch your skin shake off the shroud of dullness and take on a new clarity.

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!

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.

      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.

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

        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.

            I used this product after washing my face w/Neutrogena and using Biore's microdermabrasion scrub. This mask was cooling on my skin and felt nice. After washing it off, my skin was taut but not tight and my pores were tiny!! Usually my oily skin seems to attract all the dirt in the air, making my pores appear massive. This product is great.

              I would not recommend for people with sensitive skin. Clogged pores have always been my issue. This product works very well on my large pores. I only use it on my T-Zone as it is too drying elsewhere. Works great on summer chest and back acne as well.

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

              This is fantastic! I love to use it right before Philip Thomas Roth's sulfur mask. That really brings a lot of gunk to the surface. I've read a lot of reviews on various sites that this mask causes acne, but my experience has been that it brings zits to the surface that were already being formed. Therefore, I have learned not to use it right before an event where I need to have smooth skin or be photographed. I use it when I plan to be out of sight for a few days, to treat the zits that come to the surface (where there are some). Charcoal taken internally has the same effect. I love the blackness of it, and my boyfriend uses it too. It doesn't get on our towels 'cause we rinse it off first. Love that this is available so I don't have to go out and have facials. If you don't like the black, this probably isn't for you. For me, that's part of its charm!

              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.
