Review: Origins Clear Improvement Mask

Thursday 1 July 2010

Hey Ladies,

So as I promised in my Mario Badescu review here is my review for a mask which I think is pretty great for congested skin!

Don't I look damn sexy wearing it!

So what does it claim?
Activated charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers. White China clay absorbs environmental toxins. Lecithin dissolves impurities.

What I Think
Its funny I've just read that description now & I actually can't think of a better way to describe it other than it feels like a magnet on your skin, when you apply it you feel your skin throbbing, not a stinging sensation that I've had from other clay masks but it feels like the rubbish in your skin is being pulled out.

This mask gives you instant gratification once you remove the dried mask (which isn't hard to remove like some clay masks) your skin does look instantly clearer, it certainly removes the blackheads from my nose, it could make you have a few spots a couple of days later only because its drawing all the impurities out. The smell is hard to place, not offensive at all it basically smells like any other charcoal mask so wont choke you to death like the other Origins one I have that smells like farts!

I use this every so often when I think my skin needs a clearing so a couple of times a month but if you do have problem skin once a week would do the trick i'm sure, i'm just scared of it drying out my skin. I'm very paranoid like that.

But skin care is my passion & love so if you've got any questions, requests for reviews (i'll happily buy stuff) then let me know & i'll get on it!

Thanks for reading & sorry for subjecting you to that picture of me, I look wrong without mascara!


  1. You are brave posting that pic! I loved the Origins Your Getting Warmer mask but its now discontinued :-(

  2. I used to use it.. it was great till i got to 3/4 empty and then I remember suddenly it just stopped doing anything for me. Clearly moderation of use is the key!

    You could try the Organic Chocolate & Banana face mask from
    The company mainly does natural & organic stuff for naturally curly haired people but they have natural & organic skin care stuff too. I've only tried the face mask and I swear I nearly ate my face it smelt so yum! I use it once a week to clear the grime and mineral make up deposits left in my pores. My once a week Sunday treat.
