Review | Origins Clear Improvement® Mask

My skin has been very temperamental of late; I'm not sure whether it's just hormonal breakouts, or whether I've had a bit of a reaction with some skincare I've been trying, but either way my skin has been the worst it's been in years - oily, sensitive and covered in spots. Lovely - I don't think! Having picked up an Origins gift set containing three of their masks in the January sales, I've been using the Clear Improvement® mask two or three times per week lately, and (spoiler alert!) have seen a massive difference in my skin!
Review Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask
I've been using the Clear Improvement® mask of a morning, starting by cleansing my skin and then holding a warm, damp flannel over my face for a few seconds to open my pores, before applying a thin layer all over my face. The mask is easy to spread over the skin, feels cooling once on, and dries quite quickly; you can see little dots appear where the pores are as it draws out the oils and impurities, which is really satisfying to watch! After ten minutes or so I then hop in the shower to wash it off, and once I'm out I apply my toner and moisturiser as usual. I find my skin feels smoother and calmer after using this, and three weeks of using it on a regular basis has seen a huge reduction in blemishes, which are smaller, less red, and fewer in number. My skin is still prone to blackheads, and nothing seems to stop those coming back unfortunately - I think it's just because I have large pores and oily skin, there's probably not much that can be done there! Overall, though, I'm really happy with the results I've seen from this mask and it's definitely one I'll continue to use on a regular basis.
Origins Clear Improvement Mask Review
Origins Clear Improvement® Mask is available direct from Origins, priced at £23 for 100ml; this isn't the cheapest of face masks by any stretch of the imagination, but a little goes a long way so the generously-sized tube will last well, and for me it's well worth the price tag for the results it's achieved!

  1. I really like this too, I find that it has been one of the best clay masks I have tried when it comes to cleansing and detoxing the skin.

  2. I have not tried this one - but have a similar mask and LOVE what these kinds of products do for cleansing my skin and shrinking my pores. LOVE. ♥ Great review - I may need to try this one next!

  3. I really love this mask too! It does a great job at detoxing my skin <3

  4. I love origins! I've had my eye on this for a while, I think I'll get it the next time I'm at Sephora!

  5. As I have got older clay masks are a little drying on my skin so I prefer to use some of the other origins masks more specifically aimed at my skin type. This does look like the perfect mask for a younger skin though and I agree watching it work must be hugely satisfying - a little like watching a dyson lift the fluff off your carpets lol - or is that just me x

  6. I just got the same mask from them, cant wait to try it x

  7. I have this and never got round to using it yet! Must dig it out although I'm worried about it drying my skin out xx

  8. I've heard such good things about this mask but I've never tried it before, I have oily blemish prone skin too so this sounds perfect. I think I'm going to have to treat myself to it! Great review x
