Review: Origins Mask & Spot Treatment

Hey Everyone, hope you are doing okay :)
Today I thought I would share my thoughts on two Origins products I have bought this year, One in February, the other the end of April. They are both very popular and the reason I bought them was because of seeing so many rave reviews.

Super Spot Remover
As an avid user of 'spot treatments' I'm always keen to try new ones. This being so popular was definitely up there at the top of my list to try. It comes in a dinky plastic bottle with a screw cap, inside there is 10ml of product which is a gel like consistency. As far as I can tell the main spot fighting ingredient is Salicylic acid which is in my opinion the best for combating spots. I use this on big, red angry spots that pop up and when I apply it it tingles like crazy! This can only be good though because half an hour later redness is reduced and the spot is definitely smaller and less inflamed.



Clear Improvement Face Mask

One of my main skin gripes (minus the acne obviously) are my huge pores which are very visible on my cheeks, nose and forehead and congested big time. The product claims are so suited to me I just had to get this. It has active charcoal which draws the impurities out from your skin while White China Clay absorbs toxins and Lecithin dissolved impurities. I've only used this twice and I'm not going to lie, I was left feeling slightly underwhelmed. I'm not sure if I'm somehow using it wrong or I was ready to be overwhelmed due to the hoard of rave reviews - either way I haven't felt it's made a huge difference to the appearance of my pores or my skin after use. I suppose that is 'first impressions' after only using it twice but I'm holding out hope I will see the amazing results after using it once a week without fail. Fingers crossed.



I currently have three big spots on my cheek so will be monitoring how well the SSR works and I'm hoping with using the mask more, I will see excellent results :)

Super Spot Remover: £13
Clear Improvement Mask: £20

  6. I am on the look out at the moment for a good face mask so it's a shame this wasn't what you'd hoped! But hopefully you may see results after a week or so? Currently I use the £1 Superdrug face masks weekly, and they are nice, but I definitely want to step things up now. :P
