Finding a reputable skin care product these days can turn into an odyssey, not to mention a good facial mask that won’t dry out your (already dry) skin. With so many choices in the market today you just don’t know where to look. But believe that it’s possible. I know some of us won’t just try anything without good ratings these days. And because I know the importance of an honest product review, I am writing yet another review here.
In my experience, this charcoal mask by Origins works quite well.
What it claims to do: It’s a mask with activated charcoal to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers. Activated charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers. White China clay absorbs environmental toxins, and lecithin dissolves impurities. Good for all skin types.
Does it deliver? Well, Don’t expect a $120-valued facial with this facial mask; it doesn’t do extractions on its own. But it does at least clears the pores. It’s a quick fix! Normally, I apply it on my nose and chin, which are the areas more prone to breakouts. It gets the dirt out and makes it easier for blackheads to be extracted. My skin is also a bit brighter afterwards. So it does get the job done.
Don’t let it overdry, especially if you have sensitive skin, since it may cause irritation. One may still experience a little redness, but it soon goes away. It’s a good one, don’t be afraid to try it!
