Origins Clear Improvement Mask

As my skin has gone through a bit of a rough stage, I needed something that would give it a boost full of energy, radiance and brightness. I had my eye on this mask from Origins for a while now, but the price (€25,00) was the main reason why I was always hesitant to purchase it. 

Then I got a lovely note from saying that I got a €5 gift card, because I reached a certain level of points. And as you know me: I had to spend it.
I had a quick browse on their website and I was thinking about getting some Zoeva brushes, but then I remembered that I really wanted to try an Origins mask and there was no way to change my mind.
Origins has a lot of nice masks, but my eye immediately fell on the Origins Clear Improvement Mask. Mainly because I heard the most wonderful things about it. Also the words charcoal and removing impurities sound like magic to my ears, so I popped it in my basket, went to check-out and waited patiently for it to arrive the next day.

As soon as the delivery man left, I opened the package and I was so excited to finally have a real Origins mask in my hands. I removed my make-up, applied it on my face, took a bath with my Lush Brightside Bubble Bar and let the mask do it's magic
After removing the grey mask I found it quite drying and not at all what I expected. I didn't get an allergic reaction, which was a bonus, but it just didn't do the job for me. As I did spent €25,00 on a mask, I wasn't going to just throw it in the bin, so I reapplied it a couple of days later. That was the moment that made me fall in love head over heels with this mask.

Cause it turns out I was wrong after all. I usually always hate a product before I love it and this mask from Origins is no exception. I removed the mask from my face and looked at glowy and smooth skin. I was basically in shock about how good my skin looked and I have been applying it two times a week for about a month now.
The mask itself is creamy and applies very smoothly. You don't need much at all, which I like a lot. After I apply it, I let it sit on the skin till it's dry. Sometimes that's a bit longer than usual (aka watching a movie and not wanting to leave the TV to take off my grey face). I remove the mask with lukewarm water and a cloth, then I dry it with a towel and I take a look in the mirror to see the gorgeous glow that has just appeared on my forehead. Lately there were some small bumps on my forehead, but those have completely disappeared and my skin has never been so soft and smooth. It leaves my skin so glowy and radiant and the pimple attacks have been less regular too. It’s mend to clear out pores, so that must be the reason why!

I'm normally not a mask type of girl, since I find they only give me more pimples - weird I know - but this has really changed my view on them. As I said, I wear this mask two times a week and I can't see myself without it anymore. I kind of regret the fact that I didn't purchase it sooner. I know that it can be a lot of money for a skincare product, but it's totally worth it for me. I will definitely be buying this again and I can't wait to try more Origins goodies!

Have you tried this mask or any other Origins product before?


  1. I've got this and 2 other origins masks for Christmas last year, and I absolutely love them. I'm the same in that I've never really been a face mask lover - but these are the exception. I'd also really recommend the Out-Of-Trouble by Origins one too- I have spot prone skin and find this one really helps to calm them.

    1. I really want to try the Out of Trouble mask! As long as it fights spots I'm happy haha! x

  2. I like the sound of this. Charcoal masks have always worked wonders for my skin and I love Origins as a brand. Their Drink Up Intensive mask is one of my favourites.
