A couple of months ago when I still subscribed to Birchbox, I received a sample size of the Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask. I finally tried it out this morning because I felt like sneaking in a mini-pampering session…

Before applying the mask, I gently scrubbed my face with a warm, damp washcloth to open my pores and keep my skin moist. The mask went on smoothly and only took about 10 minutes to completely dry on my face. I could feel my skin tightening a bit as the mask dried.
When I rinsed off the mask, my skin felt soft and even looked a little brighter! I loved the super clean feeling and my face even had a faint smell (sort of clay-like, but in a nice way).
I definitely recommend testing out this product. Sephora sells the mask (and other Origins goodies), so you can swing by Sephora and ask for a free sample if you want to try before you buy! I am thinking of making a DIY avocado mask this weekend too – if it is successful, be on the lookout for a post!
