I break out every time I use this. I tried it over and over without changing any other products and each time I try this I end up with a huge breakout. Too bad I really wanted to like it. Ended up giving what was left to a friend. Would not repurchase.

Ive used this stuff on a weekly basis for a little over a year and a half now. I really like it.

I wouldnt say its super magic, like its not like my skin instantly stops being blemished within hours, but, it has done a lot of good for me. It was a little rocky at first, during the main purge-stage, but after a month or so my skin got used to it and now its a staple. Like, I feel a need for it when I think my face just isnt clean enough, and I like the feeling when its all clean and pure afterwards.

-Super clean
-Creamy texture
-Easy to apply

-Masques in Tubes are a pain when youre low and need scissors to get in there
-Hurts like Hell when you accidentally poke yourself in the eye while applying it
-Sometimes hard to get off, and it may stain your light washcloths

So I'm seeing a lot of reviews on here that state this stuff is supposed to make the skin purge. Well, it did. I've tried it a total of three times to try to get my moneys worth and all it has done is make me break out. At first just little bumps on my cheeks, nothing major. I used it last night and now I have three huge painful cystic pimples. That's not what I was going for! Obviously. This may work for some people but not for me. If you break out easily or it takes you a while to get rid of pimples please, please do not use this. My skin was clear before I made the mistake of trying this again last night. WASTE OF MONEY. Will be throwing it away immediately.

I tried this mask out from a sample. The smell was plastic like but it had a lovely smooth, thick texture and was gray in colour. Normally I trust origins products, so I put this product directly on half my face instead of trying a swatch on my arm. I hadn't even finished applying the mask when it started burning! I had to wait a few minutes to wash it off (my sister was using the sink) and when I finally did my skin felt tight and the burning sensation was still there. After going through my normal face washing routine, the damn burning was still there! My skin was irritated for a while after but when it calmed down, was a little smoother to the touch but very dry. I would not recommend this product. The origins brand is generally much better.

I bought this because I read reviews about actually seeing the blackheads popping out when this mask was applied.

I steam my face for 10 minutes before I apply. Then I put a generous amount all over face and wait 20 till completely dried. I like the tingly sensation, I find it very relaxing. After I use an exfoliater (cliniques orange one) to get it all off.

-makes my face feel softer
-makes my face cleaner

-hard to take off (which doesnt really matter but..)
-Ive been using this once a week for about 2 months and I cant see any improvement whatsoever
-still have blackheads

Nice mask if you dont really have bad skin and dont need to really get those blackheads or pimples out.

While I love this product, I use this for one purpose only. I have extremely dry skin and mostly charcoal masks are good for oily skin so this is not something I use often. BUT my skin has the tendency to be very sensitive to weather/climate changes. Whenever I go on vacation, no matter where to, I arrive with clear skin and the next morning wake up to an oily pimple mess all over my face. WITHOUT FAIL. Every. Time. So I bought this product in the pods, which were very convenient for travel and took them with me out of town for a wedding. The last thing any woman wants is to be seen in wedding pictures with an oil slick face and a giant pimple. I used the mask the first night I arrived and woke up the next morning with an amazing complexion. First time ever. I used it once more on the 5 day trip just to be safe. No break outs. I have taken this on many more trips since then and I can safely say I found the cure to my "face freak outs". So if you're someone who suffers from oily skin or has a similar problem to mine I recommend this product to keep everything in balance. I would use with caution though as I can see how this might dry people out possibly causing have skin to produce even more oil trying to hydrate itself.

I really like this product. I have had the travel size for almost a year and I still have some left (granted, I do not use it every week). The product tingles as it dries and I love the feeling. It is hard to get off but I am not sure why that would really bother anyone? After you take it off your skin is visibly smoother and it definitely helps my mild to moderate acne. I wish I had the patience to use it more often. -1 Lippie for the price! This baby is expensive!

This product will cause breakouts because it is drawing out toxins so it is doing as it states in the description. The product is much too pricey IMO and you don't get a lot of product for the price so I will not repurchase. It also seems watered down. I loved the charcoal mask by MAC but I guess it was discontinued. Now the MAC one was perfect. This one not so much.

I had read that the charcoal in this mask helps with acne/pimples, so I was happy to see it in Sephora and bought it. I applied it to my forehead and sides of my face. It tingled slightly and it hardened in several minutes.
After washing it off, my forehead was softer. However, a few days later, my forehead broke out. I gave it a second try and my forehead broke out again. I even put it on my shoulders and they broke out too! So while it may work for others, for me this just causes breakouts.

Every time I wash off this mask, I see that my skin looks and feels clearer, the redness is reduced, but it doesn't really clear out my pores. When you first apply this mask, it feels kind of nice and cool, then after it dries, it is quite hard to remove, the best way to do it, is to use a very wet towel. I do like this mask, but I'm not sure I would repurchase just because of the price.
