Origins Face Mask Gift Set
I received this gift set for Christmas actually, which seems a lifetime ago, and I've given all three of these face masks a good going now to tell you all about them. I've always wanted to try skin care, especially face masks, from Origins. I think this is such a perfect way to get to try all three, in a smaller size and also at a smaller price. This whole set was £25 which I think is an absolute bargain considering you get three, pretty decent sized, face masks.
The first face mask included in the Clear Improvement active charcoal mask. This is aimed to unclog pores and towards combination/oily skin. This mask applies rather thick, so can take a while to dry although it does recommend 10-15 minutes. I then rinse it off and am left with soft feeling skin and can definitely see a difference in the size of my pores. I tend to get them all around my nose and they can really bother me when they are large. So using this mask can really help reduce them and it also helps with my redness and blemishes. It can help soothe them and just leave them not as dry and easier to deal with.
Secondly is the Out of Trouble 10 minute mask which is aimed at problematic skin. This one I was really drawn too as you know I suffer with blemishes. The first thing I noticed about this mask is the scent, it's quite a strong natural, herbal scent. It's not a horrible smell but it is rather strong if you're not a fan of that. But this face mask works like a treat, it really helps my blemishes, more so than the charcoal mask. Also when this face mask has been left on, it doesn't get that "hard" feeling which I think really helps those painful blemishes. It also really helps the blemishes that are painful, it soothes them and diminishes redness.
Finally the Drink Up Intensive over night face mask. Only recently has my skin taken a turn for the worst and become really dry in places. So this face mask has really been helping in that department. It can take quite a while to dry once applied, so just leave it a few minutes before plopping your head on your pillow. Again this one has a scent but no where near as strong as the previous. This works amazingly well, in the morning my face feels super hydrated. Sometime my dry skin becomes flaky and this completely stops that leaving it ready to apply make up the next day.
Overall I am really enjoying using these face masks. I love that all the Origins products include natural ingredients as someone with blemish prone skin it's nice to know I'm not putting anything nasty on my face. This is a great gift set to be able to try out all three face masks, I'm just unsure as to whether it's available anymore or not. I'd definitely recommend trying these out if you haven't already. I'd love to hear your favourite Origins product that you would recommend? :-)
