Origins face masks



Origins is one of the most established and best brands for skincare. A majority of their products are highly commended and rightly so. After reading so many rave reviews online i had to get my paws on the three most popular masks and having testing them out for a little over two months i thought i'd share my thoughts.

Origins Drink Up mask £20 (buy here)
Having dry skin this product suits me extremely well. It has a cream, almost gel-like, formula which is easy to distribute evenly around the face so you only need the tiniest amount to cover your face and neck resulting in the regular 100ml tubes lasting a while. (I've had mine since early january, use a it twice a week and reckon i've only used a quarter of the tube.) The mask is extremely rich and tackles those nasty dry patches during those cold months. A must-have for all those with dry skin.

Origins Clear Improvement £20 (buy here)
Probably my favourite face mask out of the three, don't get me wrong i'm a big fan of all of them but this one is something special. During the colder months my skin suffers terribly, it gets dry and boy, does it breakout! I tried this at a time when i was particularly spotty, it did nothing for the spots already there but as the spots there began to fade over time i noticed no fresh ones were arising- what is this witchcraft?! The only thing i had changed in my routine was my mask and ever since i have used it religiously. Although this mask is designed for oily skin it works wonders on my dry skin, i just slather on some face cream half an hour after using it. If you were to buy just one of the masks out of the three i would recommend this one the most, especially if you suffer from active breakouts or congested pores.

Origins Out of Trouble £20 (buy here)
This mask is designed for oily skins that often have breakouts so i wasn't sure how much use i'd get out of this as my skin isn't particularly oily or spotty. I had a breakout yesterday and decided to use this, it did wonders. My spots turned from being red, painful and greasy to less red, pain free and not greasy. It says on the tube it takes 10 minutes, for me i found i noticed a difference a few hours after i put the mask on. After using the mask on my whole face i reapplied the product directly onto my spots and left them for an hour to dry them out. I found the product worked best on the red, painful spots oppose to the smaller non painful spots. Highly recommend this for people with oily skin and/or people who have regular breakouts.
