Origins: Out Of Trouble Mask...

Origins Out Of Trouble 10 Minute Mask - £20.00 

I suffer with combination skin - normal skin, I have an oily t-zone and normal to dry cheeks.  The past month or so, my t-zone has gone into over drive and iv had some breakouts on my forehead and chin *sad face*! I needed some help!

I was scouring the blogesphere to see what remedies I could find and the word on the street was that Origins was THE go-to skin care brand! I do have quite sensitive skin also, so I needed to find a brand that was gentle.

After scouring the Origins website, I came across this ...I also came across a few other things, but I will leave them for another post!...lets just say im glad I hit the purchase button!

It looks almost creamy but it has that clay mask texture, if you know what I mean! lol its got a sort of chalky feeling about it. I t applies easily and the great thing about this is you leave it on for 10 minutes and it actually drys in 10 minutes, none of that waiting around, is it dry, is it not dry nonsense! after 10 minutes I wipe this off with a muslin cloth and warm water.

After this mask, I really noticed a difference in the areas that I applied it to! They were no longer an oily mess and its really helped my break outs, my skin feels fresher, slightly toned and it helped dry out any blemishes I had.

I would totally recommend this product! I only apply this to my t-zone, I wouldn't recommend this if you had dry skin as I think this would dry it out even more, this is defo one for more oily skin types. I use this once ever 2 or 3 weeks and I defo notice an improvement after iv used it! In case you were wondering, it does have a fragrance to it, it has a herbaly tea tree type of smell, I kinda like it tho so it doesn't bother me! You also get 100ml of product, I know Origins can be quite expensive, so in my opinion, I think the £20 price tag isn't actually that bad!

If you can, I defo recommend picking up a sample of this stuff to try out!

Hope all you lovelies had a great Monday!
