Origins Mask and Scrub Review

Hi everyone!

What’s on my mind: sharing my Saturday afternoon with Origins skin care.

Featured in the photo:

*Origins Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask

*Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask

*Origins Modern Friction Nature’s Gentle Microdermabrasion 

First off, Origins is a great skin care brand due to the content of natural ingredients. The brand utilizes the powerful properties of plants from around the world to make scientifically proven results for healthy skin. I can say that my dedication to these three products makes me trust that description.

The Out of Trouble 10 Minute Mask is amazing for purifying skin when it has been in a trouble period. It has zinc oxide and sulfur to extract oil and slough away dead skin, as well as camphor to keep your skin calm in the process. I don’t use this mask more than once a week on my whole face give my skin is on the drier side. It works great as a spot treatment, in fact, it’s the only one I use because ingredients such as benzoyl peroxide prove to be too harsh for me.

The Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask is my go-to for pores. Since I have discovered this mask I haven’t reverted back to pore strips, because I prefer the mask feeling for pore purification. The mask contains the main ingredient of bamboo charcoal, China clay, and lecithin. All three in combination absorb environmental toxins and draw out pores.

Lastly, the Modern Friction Nature’s Gentle Microdermabrasion is my favorite scrub to date. It does a great job smoothing your skin’s texture without the added irritation. The mask contains a rice starch to help with uneven skin tone and discoloration, as well as dead skin cells. However, it is important to note that over-scrubbing the skin is a common skin care mistake and can increase irritation and dryness. I use this scrub, depending on the conditions of my skin that week, 2-3 times a week. The one in the photo is actually a free sample size, which has already lasted me over three weeks!

All three of these products are staples in my skin care regimen. I love that my skin has responded well to this brand due to its natural origins (hence the name!).

I took a mini spa day today with these after a long week and I hope this review added some clarity to the benefits of masks and scrubs in moderation, and how natural products free of parabens and sulfates are of high value.

The products are available at Macy’s Origins counter as well as Sephora! This post was in no way sponsored. ❤

Hi beautiful people! I’m Kelly, a public health graduate hoping to inspire others about health and wellness. To be frank, health is long-term. It shouldn't go in and out of fashion. You cannot buy health in a package delivered to your doorstep- you have to work for it! Join me as I post about health research, skincare, the benefits of a quality diet, and exercise. Animal posts as well as my love for coffee will most likely also be featured. xx
