Skincare Review: Origins Clear Improvement – Clear Pores

Skincare Review: Origins Clear Improvement – Clear Pores


I am always looking for great products to keep my skin nice and clear AND for it to look good without makeup on. Most of the people that know me or have seen me in person know I am not a huge makeup wearer. I believe that makeup enhances beauty and I don’t want it to necessarily be my “beauty”. So, I love to protect my skin! I recently received the Origins Clear Improvement in a giftbag from the Glam Dinner in NY during Fashion Week. I couldn’t wait to try it out.

This charcoal face mask has many great ingredients. “Activated Charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers, White China Clay absorbs environmental toxins, Lecithin dissolves impurities.”

So because I have been doing alot of sweating from dance classes, my face hasn’t been feeling the best 🙁  I was looking for a good face mask. I tried it out this weekend!

(Don’t mind my eyebrows. I am growing them out) This is how it looks after it dries. I probably could’ve used a little more.

lol I always look crazy with masks on…but I think everyone does lol My dog generally barks at me crazy like I’m not the same person.


When I rinsed it off, my face felt sooo good! It was brighter! Not oily and not dry, a perfectly smooth feel. Days later, my face still feels smooth and oil-free 🙂  I felt like I had just had a facial!

(I hate close up pics! lol . You can see all my freckles here)


I don’t know if you can tell in the pic, but my pores are definitely smaller than they were (I did forget a before pic though). My skin still feels amazing almost 5 days later. I am going to do this weekly like they suggest. I loved the immediate difference so I’m sure long term use will make my skin feel even more amazing and clear!!

Do you like using face masks?
