Origins Charcoal mask Review

Origin's is such a popular brand on blogs and youtube so I was curious to see the fuss. This was one of the products that got raved about on blogs for oily skin and since I suffer with oily skin I was curious about this product. 

Having already tried Origins super spot remover awhile back and was disappointed with the results I was sceptical about trying another product for improving skin types. However, I thought since its a mask it maybe more beneficial than a simple dab over a spot. So I purchased this and do not regret it one bit!

This mask has helped improve my skin so much! if a mask can do this much for my face I wonder what the other masks do! 
I was so confused with how to apply this as it says to use a damp warm towel which I thought was too complicated as I prefer using my hands.
I tried both my hands and a towel - both ways are great but personally, I prefer using my hands to apply it.

The product when you apply a bit to your hand looks scary as it is this black/dark blue colour. The consistency is thick which allowed it to be easier to apply, you are supposed to remove it once it has dried in your skin. So I like to leave it for 5-7 minutes or so. Once removed off my skin I noticed a few differences straight away: my skin felt like it had just gained 100 splashes of moisture it felt so soft and hydrated, my discoloration from spots in the past had shrunk so much and the spots I did have dried up instantly. Just to get results like that after one use is amazing so I knew it would get better after a few more tries.

I use this once or twice a week but when I do use it my skin improves more and more each time. I now notice my skin isn't as red as it used to be because when I apply make-up I am not having to use as much foundation or concealer to cover up. I also noticed my overall skin type had improved since I suffer with oily skin I do feel like this has helped stop my skin being as oily because, when I wear my make-up for a few hours my make-up isn't starting to shine as much as it used to be.

Pros: 
dries up those little spots
hydrates your skin by 100%
decreases redness and discoloration
smells really organic and fresh
results are fairly quick

cons:
expensive to buy

Overall I love this product and will definitely be repurchasing this in the future. I do see why everyone raves about Origin's so much, not all products are for everyone but I do think if you are like me and suffer with oily skin to give this a shot!

  1. Did you know it's cheaper to buy 2 50ml tubes? It comes to £20 instead of £22 per 100ml :)

  8. I usually hate masks like this, much prefer sheet masks or ones that are less messy!! Great review nonetheless though :)
