My wedding is in 2 weeks - yes, 2 weeks! - so I'm doing everything I can to get my skin looking clear and healthy. I've been using Origins' Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask* twice a week to pull out any impurities, and I've been really happy with the results!
"When environmental toxins, dirt and debris get under your skin, its waste-filtering system gets jammed, pores get clogged, skin looks cloudy. Nature's complexion clean-up crew gets to the bottom of skins overcast condition and clears the way for it to act its best. Activated Charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers, White China Clay absorbs environmental toxins, Lecithin dissolves impurities. Without all that "stuff" down there, skin "breathes a sigh of relief." - Origins
Origins Clear Improvement has a thick, creamy charcoal consistency that is really easy to smooth over my entire face. This mask hardens slightly after about 10-15 minutes, but it never feels too tight or uncomfortable like most clay masks tend to do. This mask does take a bit of effort to fully wash it off, so you might want to grab a washcloth to get the job done quicker. Once the mask is full washed off, my skin has a beautiful radiance to it, and my skin looks clearer and calmer. I'll definitely continue to use this mask in the next two weeks leading up to my wedding to keep my skin looking fabulous for the big day!
Have you tried Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask yet? I just have the travel size tube, which I'll definitely be bringing with me on my honeymoon to Barcelona. My skin tends to freak out every time I get on an airplane, so I'm hoping that this mask will keep my skin nice and calm during my upcoming travels!
