Review: Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask

By  |  0 Comments

This mask might actually be magic.

I’ve had bad acne since I was 13 and not the kind that’s easy to get rid of. It’s the painful, cystic kind that refuses to go away. And no matter how many topical antidotes I tried, nothing seemed to help.

But then I tried the Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask. It promises to clear pores, so I thought, why not try it? After using it a handful of times, I have my opinion: this actually works.

Here’s how: I opened my pores using a warm washcloth, patting it dry before applying the mask all over my face. I then kept it on until it felt dry and tight on my skin before washing it off. Easy. Of course, you don’t see results immediately, but it wasn’t long until I did. The next morning, the painful cystic acne had dried and was beginning to heal. It wasn’t red and most of the inflammation was gone.

The mask should probably only be used once or twice a week because it’s really powerful, but it can also be drying. And dry, irritated skin is not fun.

You can find it at Sephora for $26, which may seem expensive, but the bottle is 3.4 ounces and not much product is needed for one mask, so you can get a lot of uses for your money.

Overall, I really recommend this product.

I'm an avid reader and love writing more than anything. My favorite authors include Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, and J.K. Rowling. I love fashion, and though you'd never tell by looking at me, I'm a horror movie junkie. Painting is one of my talents, and my ultimate career goal is to be an author.
