First Impressions: Origins Out of Trouble Face Mask

Wow this week really has flown by! I was half expecting it to drag seeing as I haven't had work so far this week, but it's gone surprisingly quickly. That said, I have been out and about every day doing bits and pieces so I guess I didn't get as bored as I thought I was going to be. :)

I bought this Origins Face Mask at the end of August when I got paid as a little treat to myself before I embarked on my 100 Day Challenge. My skin has been up and down for the past few months and I'm kind of enjoying trying out different products to see what works well with my skin and what doesn't. As awesome-a job as my Avon Cleanser has done in getting my skin to a near respectable standard, there are still a few niggly spots and blemishes left which I've given the Origins Out of Trouble Mask (and the hoard of samples that came with it) the task of finishing off the last few resilient ones.

First off, the smell. I'm not going to lie and say it smells awesome because it doesn't. It smells a little bit like Body Shop's Hemp Hand Protector, and reminds me a little of moss (?!). It's not a strong smell though, and once applied you can't really smell it anyway. Application is nice and simple, just smooth it onto your face and throat in a nice even layer. Unlike cheaper brands I've tried, a little seems to go a long way with this face mask - I feel as though I've barely used any!

Once applied I left it for 10 minutes (clue's in the name there I guess!) and then washed it off with a face cloth and warm water. I have to admit it didn't look as though it had made much of a difference straight off, but then again I'm not sure if it's meant to. In the morning however my skin did feel quite a bit softer, and quite a lot of the redness had gone down.

As the title suggests, this blog post is only a first impression of it, I'm going to continue using it (they suggest once a week) and then come back to you in a month or so with a more solid review for you to have a gander at. :)

Have you tried this face mask or any other Origins products? What's your favourite? :)


  1. Hahaha love those photos of you with it on! Amazing :)

    I can't wait to see how you get on with it. I currently use a boots no 7 one that smells like off milk but works a treat. x

      I don't think I could use one which smelt too bad, I'd hate it!

  2. I am excited to see your next review on it! Only time will tell!
