I'm back with more review for Origins with the masks for every climate.
In this collection I'll share with you the Clear Improvement made for acne and oil control. Still, this product is made suitable for all skin type from dry, normal to oily, amazing isn't it?! So, those who have dry skin with acne, or normal skin with acne, or dehydrated skin with greasy oily, can all use this product.
The box contain information to all of the masks inside.
On each of the tube, there's details too, no worries about finding all the necessary information as their website also provide everything well.
From the how to use to ingredients are all there. And a special container is made for Clear Improvement as we can see what's inside the tube.
What's so special about Clear Improvement? It's the active charcoal inside.
Known as the “black diamond”, Charcoal has been prized for its purifying properties dating back to the Ming Dynasty in 1486. It’s created from Bamboo Ash and valued for its excellent absorption abilities. When applied to skin, it acts like a magnet to draw out dirt, debris and impurities.
Nature's complexion clean-up crew clears the way for skin to act its best. Bamboo Charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers, White China Clay absorbs environmental toxins, Lecithin dissolves impurities. Skin looks clear, feels perfectly pure.

The thing about living in a tropical country where it is hot and humid (even when the rain season is here) is we sweat a lot and the pores tend to opened up due to the condition, hence we do attract dirt more than during dry or cold condition. That's why we need to take a shower twice a day and keeping ourselves clean more often.
Same goes with the face, it becomes oilier, stickier and for sure, attract more germs (hiks, cry out loud).
Look at the close up image of my face.
This is after cleansing, so there's no makeup whatsoever, the pores are visible since dirt are trapped, the nose especially, there's blackheads and acne on the side of the chin.
Above is the texture of the mask, not as dense nor thick like other charcoal mask I know, this is easier to distribute and dried up to making the skin feels pulled.
There's no sting, redness or allergic reaction to irritation, everything is pure comfort using Clear Improvement. I love it as sometime I feel concerned using products that cause tingling sensation on the skin.
I've been using the mask numerous time and always have a good time, I can use it with the other mask for acne (also from Origins) or alone all over my face for that 'detoxing' ability.
Use a brush for mask or your finger, it really doesn't matter.
The product has no distinct scent whatsoever, so it is perhaps unscented too, so the smell is pretty much like nothing (typical of charcoal).
Those with oily skin or acne prone or problems with smelly pores (due to being clogged) charcoal can cleanse everything well and absorb the smell too.
I love how they make this product as it is so gentle even to sensitive dry skin like mine, yet so effective even to my husband oily and acne prone skin. It's like my holy grail now, I can't never feel the same or looking for another product, I can see (ehm feel) why Origins become so famous (and pricey, hiks).
Enough with the feelings of using it, trust me it's so good, but you want to see result, right?! See the image below, the before after is so obvious.
Check out the pores on the upper cheeks and look at the amazing differences on my nose, the blackheads reduces by far and the skin appear in better mood thanks to the smaller pores. Like all the dirt have been sucked away by the mask, they are no longer have things that clogging. It is so good that the mask show significant improvement within single usage, this is why I keep using them and can't seem to get enough.
I'm using it on weekly basis to make the skin even more flawless. And of course, from cleaner and healthier skin comes better collaboration when using makeup.
A less problematic skin will always looks pretty.
Thank you so much Origins for the pores that shrunk, cleaned properly, and clearer complexion. This is for sure, highly recommended.
