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 so i thought it'd be best to use one of my friends with more oily skin as a guinea pig so i could give better feedback. It mattified her skin without drying it out, in fact it left it soft and visibly brighter. Personally i've found this mask to work best on painful spots, it reduces the redness and dries the spot out thus reducing the pain. A holy grail product for all those who suffer from oily skin.

  6. Here are a few tips to help prevent and quickly clear up acne breakouts using natural, organic skin
    care products:1) Wash your face gently two times per day with warm water and a mild soap such as a
    goats milk soap. This natural skin care ingredient works in 2 ways;
    by relaxing your skin to smooth out wrinkles and by re-densifying your skin to permanently reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
    Indulging in a warm bubble bath, listening to music and playing your favourite
    sport are also good ways of beating stress.
