I am not really into masks because I find that they usually make much difference. You use them once or twice a week and the results are extremely temporary. That’s actually not the case for this mask. The Origins Charcoal Mask is amazing. I have eczema and some weeks I have amazing skin and other weeks (like now) I have really bad breakouts. I find that this mask is like pressing the reset button on my skin. It calms my pores and helps with uneven skin tone, helping my skin recover from the hyper-pigmentation left over from breakouts. Please keep in mind that if you have severe eczema or acne, your skin could react differently to this mask so purchase the smaller version from Sephora before purchasing the full 4oz version. You also want to test any mask on a small area of your skin before applying it all over the face – in case you have an allergic reaction.
Keep in mind that there is no mask on the market that has lasting immediate changes. I’ve tried expensive and cheap products and they all take time and patience.
Apply the mask, allow it to dry (I keep mine on anywhere from 10 – 20 minutes) and rinse with cool water. The mask was freshly applied in the photo above. Let it dry completely before rinsing. You will be left with baby soft, smooth skin and smaller pores!
