(Ahh scary!)What They Say | "When environmental pollutants, dirt and debris get under your skin, its waste-filtering system gets jammed, pores get clogged, skin looks cloudy. Nature's complexion clean-up crew gets to the bottom of skins overcast condition and clears the way for it to act its best. Activated Charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out pore-cloggers, White China Clay absorbs environmental pollutants, Lecithin dissolves impurities. Without all that "stuff" down there, skin "breathes a sigh of relief.""
What I Say | I'm always on the hunt for a decent face mask. A face mask that feels like it's getting deep down into my skin and getting rid of any nastiness. Well, I think I've found it. The Clear Improvements Active Charcoal Mask from Origins is dark grey in colour and is soft to the touch. When applied on the skin it glides on but as soon as it dries, it tightens. It isn't uncomfortable but it feels tight enough to know it's doing something. I leave it on my face for around 5-10 minutes, depending on the condition of my skin.
After the time has passed, I rinse it off using a damp warm flannel/muslin cloth, in circular motions and I'm left with lovely smooth skin. My pores are noticeably smaller and the blackheads around my nose are definitely disappearing. I use this mask once a week, again depending my skin. My skin doesn't get oily but I do find that any oiliness I may have has gone but then I need to moisturise after using.
With packaging, I much prefer face masks when they are packaged in a tube. They are easier to control exactly how much you use and they are definitely less messy. This mask is packaged inside an easy to use squeezable tube which you can see exactly how much of the product is left.
If you're looking for a weekly face mask to help control oil and/or blemishes then I definitely recommend this one.
