Origins Face Masks

origins face mask recommendations
Origins Face Mask Round up: Origins is my favourite skincare brand and I'm specifically a huge fan of their face masks. Masks have become a major part of skincare routine and I use different ones depending on the treatment my skin needs. This is a quick round up of the three I have. I have reviewed all of these in full before so feel free to click the name through to read more!
Origins Out of Trouble Mask (£20): 
I'd recommend this mask for active breakouts or oily skin sufferers. Out of the three I think this one is my favourite. This mask is sulfur, zinc oxide and camphor based but it also contains salicylic acid which is great for calming spots and reducing their redness and size. I find the mask dries up the broken out areas while mattifying my skin and leaves my skin feel softer and brighter. I like to use this as directed as a 10 minuite treatment, but I also dab it on to breakouts and leave overnight to help calm and dry spots out.

Origins Clear Improvement Mask(£20): 
This mask is perfect for deep cleaning your skin and drawing out all the yuckiess that clogs up the pores. It contains charcoal and white clay which Origins describe as "being a magnet for your skin", sucking out all the bad stuff from under your skin. I generally use this when my skin isn't broken out but is looking a bit congested and especially if I forget about my usual skincare routine. It's not a instant gratification product but there has been a noticeable improvement in my skin over the period of using this. Especially in congested areas like my chin and nose. I'd highly recommend this one is great for combination skin suffers!

Origins Drink Up Mask(£20): 
Drink Up is perfect face mask for dry and dehryated skin. Out of the three mask;s this mask smells the best. Unlike the other one it has a fresh, fruity natural scent, sort of like apricots. The cream itself is thick, rich and hydrating and once applied and my skin happily drinks up the moisture. Despite my skin being oily it is fairly dehydrated, so using this once a week helps me get the moisture I need without over saturating the skin. I find it can also balances out the drier areas of my face without enhancing the oily areas. There is also a overnight version of this 10 minute mask but I find leaving this on overnight works just as well!


  1. I like the sound of the Clear Improvement masks, I'll be picking that up asap!

  2. Always love the sound of these masks!

  3. I have the Origins overnight drink up mask and love it. I would love to try the clear improvement mask.


  4. you can never go wrong with a good face mask xx

  5. I've purchased the overnight intensive mask, and I can't wait to use it! The clear improvement mask sounds so good too! I kind of wish origins did smaller tubes so you get to try loads of different things and it won't be too expensive ! xxx

  6. I want the Clear Improvements mask, the woman tried it on me during a facial and my blemishes were instantly better. I'd really like to try the drink up mask.


  7. I have tried a sample of the Drink Up mask and I love it for dry patches! I really want to try the Clear Improvement mask after I heard you talking about it on YT, it sounds perfect for my skin!

  8. I really like the sound of the Out of Trouble mask... will have to put it on my wishlist!
    Thank you xxx

  9. I'm really keen to try some Origins skin care. The drink up mask is very tempting xx

  10. This was really helpful because I have been loving masks lately and I am thinking of buying one by origins, since they are more expensive I want to make sure to buy the best one possible! I think I will go with the "out of trouble" mask. It sounds a bit like brazened honey from lush! I just blogged about it, if you'd like to check it out :)

  11. Need to try one of these, everyone is raving about Origins! I've never really bothered with masks before, but I'm gonna give it a go!

  12. I definitely want to try the out of trouble mask - keep hearing such great things and my skin is really playing up at the moment :( x

  13. My aunt sent me one pack of out of trouble mask and said that I should give it a try. I think this works well for people with oily skin (just like me) and as far as I know, this product has several good feedback. Well I guess I have just found another great addition to my beauty products list but of course I would still want to keep my honey mask that does a great thing to my acne. :)
