I think this really deep cleanse and diminshes the number of my blackheads. I had switched to Boscia black peel and came back to this because this is cheaper and easier to wash off!

I've tried a few lower-end clay masks before and overall, liked the results. Whilst browsing Sephora I picked up the smaller version of this mask for around $16 to give it a whirl. After one use, I was hooked.
My main skin problem is visible pores/blemishes/blackheads on my nose and my cheeks, right next to my nose. I applied this product just to my T-zone area and chin after I showered and left on for around 15-20 minutes. The mask is thick and dark green, and I don't notice any smell. The results were WONDERFUL. My pores were instantly smaller and less visible and any active break outs were less red and angry. It really seemed to calm my skin and draw out impurities. It doesn't completely rid my nose of my blackheads, but on my cheeks and forehead it does. This is a must have for me. I have acne prone skin so I do this mask 2-3x a week and it's the only thing I've found to have fast, satisfying results. It makes blemishes go away faster, it definitely helps stop a blemish in it's tracks. I've bought the full size (the sample size lasted a LONG time) and am beginning to try other Origins products because I've had so much success with this! Highly recommend! If you have dry skin, I would suggest using a good moisturizer after, as this might make your skin feel tight and dehydrated.

I use this mask when I have a lot of blemishes and I feel like a need to 'clean' my skin properly. For this purpose, I have only tried clay masks before and I can't really say if there is much of a difference. But I do feel nice and clean afterwards. It's not a dramatic change as some have mentioned, where it has cleared blackheads, but it definitely dries your skin, pimples included I presume.
It sure is a messy product though! To me there is only one way to use. Cleanse the face, apply this mask, let it dry making sure you were an old robe or something. As a contact wearer, this is not the time to wear my glasses. Then - hit the shower and rinse of in the shower, often using a cloth of some type to make sure I am not forgetting spots.
Then clean your shower...
Finally, I don't often comment on the packaging. But I like the tube for the fact that it's clear and you can see how much is left and also because woth this type of messy product, a tube is the only option!

Well, this is the first charcoal mask I don't get a reaction to. I really like this, but I'm not really sure if it actually clears anything from my skin (and even after putting this on I still get pimples like the next day) so I don't know if it actually works.

This is one of my favorite masks to clear my face out. I love that it dries quickly, cleans out my pores and lives my skin softer. It is best to use with a brush to put it on as it does stain my fingers a bit and gets in under my nails. I did take off 2 l/s since sometimes it does not wash cleanly off and I need to use a micellar water to remove the rest and 2nd since it has stained my clothes sometimes in the past. I will continue to use it. For reference I have normal skin with slight oil in t-zone and I used it 1 time a week in combination with other brands.

I was first introduced to this product as a sample. When I used it for the first time I loved how it made my skin feel so smooth and took the redness out of my skin as I have acne prone and combination skin. I finally decided to purchase the tube or the origins charcoal mask I was kind of iffy to pay $30 but to me it was worth it I used it every second day but didn't really feel like it was doing anything. I eventually decided to try it as a spot treatment and leave it on over night , it works amazing ! I wake up and my acne is pretty well gone, definitely speeds up the process by drawing out all I the makeup and oils trapped in your pores. Using the mask over night works so much better than leaving it on for 10-15 minutes by far . Which makes it worth the $30 .

I can't remember how long I've had my tube of this Clear Improvement mask, but it's still going. I bought it when I was going through a fixation with self-warming charcoal masks, although I really don't use it very often at all.
I don't think the mask actually heats up on my face. I slather it on quite thickly over the entirety of my face apart from my eye area and avoiding my eyebrows. It takes around 15 minutes to dry thoroughly, at which point I have to wash it off with a face flannel (which, as other reviewers have noted, is a messy task) as it's not a peel-off product.
My face feels noticeably smoother and the skin feels refreshed immediately afterwards, ready for face oil or serum. However, I wouldn't say it makes my pores any smaller, but that could be because I don't use this mask frequently enough.
I've noticed that Origins are still selling the same version of this product, so that's probably an indication that the mask formula works.

I'm amazed at the reviews. It sounds like this stuff works wonders on some people's pores. But not mine = (
Doesn't do anything noticeable to my complexion. And I hate washing it off. It's takes a LOT of rinsing. And all that work for nothing!!
Definitely would not buy again. I should just toss out the tube; it's useless under my sink right now.

I inherited a tube of this from a friend, and I wasn't expecting much from it, but was pleasantly surprised. I like using it after the shower when my skin is nice and soft and pores are "opened". I tend to only use it on areas that need it to avoid drying out my skin. When I use it on my nose, it actually cleans out my blackheads. I was so surprised because I've never seen my blackheads get cleared out by a wash off mask. I also like to use this as a spot treatment. I like that its in a squeeze tube since its more sanitary and is not so messy to use. Its 28$CAD a tube which I think is a reasonable price.

Wonderful mask to keep in my bathroom! I like that it cleanses my face so deeply! Once I rinse this off, I put really high-concentrated serums on my face and I can feel that all the great vitamins and retinol really get into the pores.
