I love a good face mask, whether I am needing to give my skin a really deep clean or I just feel like pampering my skin I always reach for a face mask.
I have tried quite a few face masks from cheap to more high end and I always find myself reaching for the same ones. Some of the cheaper masks I like include Formula 10.0.6 Ultra Cleansing Mud Mask and the Montagne Jeunesse (any really). As for high-end and just in general Origins are by far my favourite brand for face masks!
For Christmas, I received a set of four face masks by Origins. I also really like that the products are all travel-friendly which means I am table to take them away with me without taking up too much space. The set included four mini products: Clear Improvements (charcoal), Out of Trouble, Drink Up Intensive and GiZzing mask.
The charcoal mask is an all time favourite of mine and I actually own a full size of it which I had before I got the set and have loved it for a while. I find it just makes my skin feel really clean and helps to clear any redness over time.
When I received the set I was excited to try out the other masks. By surprise, my favourite was actually the Drink Up Intensive mask.
As I have always had the quite oily skin I use to stay clear of anything overly hydrating and just stuck to light moisturisers, but as my skin has cleared I tend to have very dry skin and in winter especially it will crack a lot quicker and easier. I just find that when I put the mask on at night and wake up in the morning my skin is instantly hydrated and any dry patches I had are completely gone. It’s a great mask for when you have a cold and get especially dry around your nose. The hydrating mask is one of those moisturisers that you can feel still feel on your skin when you wake up, which to me means it is doing it job in locking in the moisture.
I also really enjoyed the Out of Trouble 10-minute mask, it just seems to calm any redness and spots I have instantly. Unlike the charcoal mask the texture is not quite as smooth so it is a little harder to apply but a little goes a long way. The smell is also quite soothing and great for when you have a stuffy nose as it has that menthol scent.
The only mask I am still yet to really try is the GinZing mask. As I don’t tend to use a mask in the morning I had really had the need to use it and I a more inclined just to wash my face with a cleanser and then moisturise rather than using the mask.
