Review of Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask

Reader Review of the Day: Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask

I haven't used Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask ($21) since college, so when I came across reader voxtrotlous's review of the pore- and pimple-clearing treatment, I got all nostalgic. But is it worth the purchase? Find out what today's reviewer had to say below:

It's not a complete dud of a product. It's less that 20 bucks, so it's not anything you can complain about. All I'm saying [is that it] doesn't really do what it says it will. . . It made [my skin] a little bit smoother, but it didn't help clear my breakouts. I don't recommend it.

I used this when I was in school. It worked beautifully but then I stopped using it. I wonder why? Well I can swing by the department store and pick one up.

I used this all the time in grad school. At first it was fabulous but then it stopped working for me. I may give it a try since it has been awhile since I used it.

Thanks for the review on this, I have been looking into trying it since I like Origins' Out of Trouble face mask so much. But I might still try this one anyway and see what it does!

me too...use this mask probably once or twice a month for a real deep cleansing and my pores thank me. now i don't have problem skin so maybe that is where the difference lies, but for a deep pore cleansing mask i haven't found better

Wierd... I really love this product! I don't use it often but when I do it's great and I'm not the only one in my household who loves it - my Mom sneaks into my bathroom once in a while to borrow it!
