Hi my loves! <3 <3 <3
NO, unfortunately, this post is NOT about food (Sowwy!!), but it’s about something (almost) as good as food (FOOD IS SIMPLY THE BEST, RIGHT?).
Today, I tried the Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask & it was so F-AWESOME that I had to share it with you stat. Lovies, this mask is Your-Answer-To-Clearer-Smoother-Cleaner-&-Refreshed-Skin-In-A-Jiffy.
P.S. For those of you who are unfamiliar with “active charcoal“, it is a natural treatment used to trap toxins & chemicals in the body, allowing them to be flushed out so the body does not reabsorb them. AND LET ME TELL YOU, IT’S SUCH A “THING” AT THE MOMENT. And I totz understand why – GUYS, IT WORKS!!!
Basically, this babe of a mask is designed to purify, deep clean & visibly reduce pores & let me tell y’all, IT DOES JUST THAT & MORE. Hooray for adequate & honest advertising!
The two base ingredients of this babe are Bamboo Charcoal & White China Clay.
- The Bamboo Charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out pore-clogging dirt, oil & impurities;
- The China Clay clears & flushes out the skin of excess oil, dirt, pollutants & other waste materials by absorbing all these environmental toxins that have a tendency to clog your pores & leave your skin looking dull!
I SWEAR, the second I took this baby off, my skin felt:
- & BEYOND REFRESHED!
And no, I am not being paid to write this – I genuinely LOVED this product. AND, this is only after ONE USE!
Besides all the great benefits of this mask, she is super easy to use! All you have to do is wash your skin with cleanser, place a warm towel over your face to open your pores, apply the mask, leave it on for 10 minutes & RINSE! I would totally suggest that, after rinsing it off, you moisturize the EFF out of your face! (BTW, I will be posting about my fave moisturizers, so keep an eye out for that baby coming your way sometime soon!).
P.S. One thing I really loved about this mask is that it goes on smoothly & is not overly-dry or irritating once it sets (I find that a lot of other masks I have tried harden way too much & make my face feel WAY TOO STIFF, basically, they make me feel like a robot who cannot move my jaw & I’m not down with that).
WHERE TO BUY & $$$$$$$$$:
You can buy her at Sephora (in-store or online) & I did see it on amazon.ca at one point as well, but I’m not sure if it’s always available there!
She retails for only $36, which I find not only TOTALLY reasonable for a mask (UHM, have you seen the price of some of the masks out there recently? CRAY-CRAY!), but especially one this good. If you guys find that your pores feel super clogged or that your skin is just feeling overall really dry after the HORRIBLE AF MTL WINTER, then I totally suggest picking this baby up at Sephora & smothering your beautiful faces in it! You will not regret it. I speak from experience!
