First Impression: I got a sample of this and FIRST AND FOREMOST I really like this single use packaging! This would be great for traveling. This is the second cleansing powder I've ever tried and I really enjoyed using it! It feels gentle but it does a good job cleansing, leaving my face very smooth and not stripped of moisture.

I don’t do well with charcoal masks and was expecting to be disappointed with this one as well but it worked a lot better than others I have tried. It was my first time using it and I was impressed. Provides a gentle exfoliate without the harshness. Smell is ok. It’s kind of expensive though for minimal results.

Okay, so this was my first ever using this face mask. I’ve been using this mask for about 3 years now & it is my holy grail!!! My skin is UBER sensitive and so many masks break me out but Origins got this one right. I leave this on my face after washing it for about 30 minutes, listen, my skin feels and looks soft after this! I will say in the very beginning when using this my skin tried to break out on me but I figured that was my pores purging out the bad stuff. Once I became consistent with this it worked like magic keeping the acne at bay. Thank you Origin for this life saver! The price is definitely worth it!

This did not clear my pores and it broke my face out. I tried to use this to clear my face and it truly made it worse. This is the second product from the brand that broke my face out and I will never buy anything from them again. I am so disappointed.

I love this exfoliating cleanser! The powder, when mixed with a touch of water, lathers and provides a refreshingly deep clean. I mix the powder with the palmetto mint face cleanser! I have incredibly reactive skin and have used so many different products. Exfoliating products are important to me because any type of build-up on my face is likely to cause a breakouts, and this product eliminates the likelihood of that happening. I suggest ALL try this product, it really is great.

LOVE. It feels great when applying to the skin & brings everything under the skin right to the surface. I’ve never used a mask that has had this much results from a single use.

Actually liked this product a lot better than the clear improvements mask. The first few times I used it I used a bit too much water, but once I started using just a drop I loved it. Feels super exfoliating and refreshing. I use it once or twice a week.

Brand is too expensive. You can find other affordable products like these without wasting too much money. The end result for this product is soft skin and fresh cleaned pores. Honestly you don’t have to waste too much money to get theses same results. You could easily find other alternatives for this brand.

Origins Clear Improvements Active Charcoal face wash is amazing! I always apply it to my face and allow it to dry for about 15 minutes, then I wash it off. It removes all of the oil, dirt, and sometimes even black heads from my face. It leaves my face super soft and blemish free. Definitely worth the price.
