A couple of weeks ago I visited Sephora for the very first time, it left my purse weeping but me a very happy girl.
One of the things I picked up was this handy little face mask pack by Origins. (If you want to see what else I purchased then check out this post here )
This set contains four individual pods of the Out of Trouble 10 minute face mask. As I like to mix things up a bit in the face mask department I think this set is a great idea as it keeps the mask itself fresh.
Origins Out of Trouble mask £23 100ml is created for those of us that have oily combination skin. It has been formulated to target the three main problem areas for this skin type.
- Reduce oiliness.
- Remove dead skin cells.
- Unclog pores.
Active ingredients include Zinc oxide, Sulfer and Camphor. The later I had never heard of before so of course I Googled it. Turns out Camphor oil is found in the wood of the Asian evergreen tree Camphor Laurel. It can also be found in dried rosemary leaves. It has microbiological properties and was once used by the Egyptions for embalming.
So biology lesson over, lets get back to my thoughts on this face mask.
As you can see it has a thick white formula. At the time I couldn’t work out what it smelt like, but after googling certain ingredients and their other uses I cottoned on that it reminds me of Vicks Vapour rub. Yup Camphor is an active ingredient in that too don’t you know!
I promise you though Vicks like scent aside its not horrible.
This felt very tingly on my skin, I could actually feel it getting to work on those pores. Tingly sensation aside it wasn’t uncomfortable to wear at all.
After removing the mask with a hot flannel my skin was left feeling incredibly soft and smooth. So much so I kept stroking my face as it felt so nice. The next morning my skin still felt lovely, and my make up applied far better than usual.
This face mask gets a big thumbs up from me. My skin looked and felt fantastic after using it and unlike some other face masks the effects have lasted.
Secondly this has helped to balance out the oils in my skin without stripping it completely and causing a reaction.
For me the product works perfectly, though perhaps a little pricey in my opinion it is worth the money.
