Such a great mask for a good deep clean. I wouldn't use this on your whole face if you have dry skin. Stick with your T-Zone or just your nose and chin. Your face feels so soft afterwards, but I would definitely put on some face cream/oil afterwards to hydrate just because this stuff opens your pores.
It's pretty messy to get off, but it's worth it.
I really like this mask. The mask dies down pretty quickly and is easy to wash off. It leaves my skin feeling clean and smooth but not dry. I have combination skin so I typically use it only on my T-zone where I want to clean out my pores and this stuff works great.
I received a sample of this with one of my Sephora orders. The amount I received was enough to try out 1-2 times a week for three weeks, so I feel comfortable giving my opinion at this time.
I have sensitive skin which is sometimes oily in my T-zone. I also have very large pores in my nose and cheeks with sebaceous filaments -- in other words, it always looks like I have blackheads even when I don't. I thought I would put this mask on in my trouble areas and see what it would do, if it would minimize the look of my sebaceous filaments and size of my pores at all. I have to say that it didn't do much.
I initially really enjoyed the experience of wearing this mask because it was so thick and had a wonderful cooling sensation. When it dried, however, it got extremely tight, to the point where it was uncomfortable. I found that I was scraping really hard with a wet cloth to get it off, which in turn left my poor skin feeling very red and irritated.
Because this did absolutely nothing for my pores and because it hurts my skin when it hardens, I have to say that this mask is not for me. These types of hardening masks are probably not a good idea for extremely sensitive skin in general.
J'adore ce produit. J'ai une peau tendance grasse et huileuse, et ce mask déloge absolument tous mes impuretés et mes imperfections. Il ressere mes pores et laisse un très beau fini.
This was a gift from my mother in law, and it is amazing on my combInation/oily skin. This mask draws any impurities out of your skin. I love how soft and smooth my skin feels after use. I really like that the charcoal in this product lifts the oil out and absorbs it. My skin is always nice and shiny and oil free. It is one of my favourite favourite masks of all time and it does not clog pores and it really does make my makeup go on. Enter. Ecause I am not combatting so much oil.
I've been using this product as directed 2 times a week for weeks now and have never had any issues of irritation or visible damage to my skin. I don't notice the smell as over bearing and if you use the tips of your fingers with warm water as the bottle says it's not hard to get off. I wouldn't recommend leaving it on longer than the 10 mins that it suggests but I've never tried to. I just use it as part of my skin care regimen and it seems to work well with my other products. It also hasn't caused any flare ups of my acne and it's hard for me to find "natural" products that don't. I love the whole origins line. I always recommend it to my friends.
I use Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask when I feel a breakout coming. I use the mask as a spot treatment. The pimple usually goes away within two days or sometimes, if I catch it early enough, I don't breakout at all. This is a skin saver for me. I will repurchase. I recommend for acne prone skin.
J'aime beaucoup l'effet des masques au charbon sur ma peau. Diminue visiblement la taille de mes pores et lisse ma peau. Produit essentiel quand j'ai plus d'imperfections.
I have acne prone skin and have been using this mask for years now. I use it ask an all over mask when I want to pamper myself or as a spot treatment when I have a breakout.
A really good mask for oily and combination skin. It matiffy the skin immediately. Plus, it's one of the cheapest mask in the category "high end". You should give it a try!
