        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.

        With the rave reviews, I was really excited to use this mask, but I haven't found it to be a fantastic product. It feels good on my skin and my skin does feel fresher and softer after use, but it hasn't done anything to shrink my pores or help get rid of acne. I started off using it twice per week as directed for a few weeks, then shifted up and used it more like 4+ times per week, then shifted down to maybe once per week. Same skin problems in all cases. I do like using it because of the tingling sensation and soft skin feeling afterwards, but I haven't experienced visible results, unfortunately. I'll continue to use what I have but I won't buy it again.

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

        I thought this was one of the better charcoal masks I've tried. It didn't strip my skin too much and left it feeling soft and clear. I do think I should use it more frequently than just once a week to see more results. I received this product for testing purposes free from Influenster.

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

        The mask is super effective and clearing while still remaining gentle and calming. It doesn't dry out my parched skin, but soothes it. I would recommend it for everyone to try. Skin type aside...

        Amazing for all over or spot treatment!

        By 

        from Pittsburgh, PA

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

        This mask has been a staple in my skin care routine for several years now. The active charcoal drawls out every impurity from your pores, without drying or stripping the skin. It's easy to apply and is it messy like many charcoal masks are. You can use this to multi mask, and apply it just in your t-zone and combine it with other masks to brighten or firm. If you don't need in all over deep clean, use it on an active break out to quickly erase the problem area. I can go to sleep with this mask on a pimple and wake up and see noticeably smaller and less red. You can also wear it for a few hours around the house and you'll see a huge difference in your breakouts. Whether you're using it all over your face or as a spot treatment, this mask is definitely worth the money. It's gentle on your skin but you can actually see cleaner pores after just one use.
        Although I received this mask complimentary from influenster in exchange for my honest review, my opinions are 100% my own and are unbiased.

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

        I live the tingle that you get when you initially apply. My skin was super smooth afterwards. I kept it on while doing house work and it wiped off easily. I could clearly see an improvement on my nose area where I had the most problem with clogged pores. I received this as a sample for testing and I rarely say this but I love it.

        This product spreads evenly and isn't messy like some clay masks. The charcoal was invigorating and it was the perfect way to treat myself while treating my skin well. I received this product complimentary for review, but I would definitely buy it!

        This made my skin feel soft and really did minimize my pores. I was really surprised at how much my pores shrank.It was easy to use and dried within about ten minutes or less. It kind of had a sting feeling to it when I first put it on but it went away. It dried within ten minutes or less. Washed off easy. Made my pores noticeably smaller after use. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves charcoal masks. I received this free from Influenster for testing purposes only

        Not your ordinary charcoal mask

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

        I like this, but I don't love it.
        I feels nice on my skin and makes me feel like I am at a spa. But it does not make my skin clear or get rid of blackheads. It's just a nice warming charcoal mask that has the consistency of a peel off mask.

        Best mask for cystic acne!!!

        By 

        from Carmel IN

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

        I use this just once a week and it has cleared up my skin more than anything ever has!! My holy grail when it comes to cystic acne! Also, if I have a nodule/cyst spot I use the mask as spot treatment. It usually takes a couple days because the acne is so deep under my skin but that is so much better than having that spot for months!!!!! Love this product so much!

        Minimizes Pores But Not Good For Sensitive Skin

        By 

        from Miami, FL

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

        I like that the mask is easy to apply and I like the consistency. However, the mask stings my face as soon as I apply it and it leaves my face red for a bit. I tried it again only on the least sensitive parts of my face and it was a better experience. Although, I didn't see a significant difference in using this product than using my regular clay mask. In fact, my pores remain smaller longer with my regular clay mask (about 2 days after I apply the mask). The Origins Clear Improvement® Active Charcoal Mask only minimized my pores until the next day. I received this product free for testing purposes and all opinions are my own.
