Review: Origins Out Of Trouble Mask

Tuesday, 12 November 2013
Hello everyone. Today I'm going to be reviewing my latest skincare buy, the Origins Out Of Trouble 10 Minute Mask To Rescue Problem Skin. Phew. What a name. After a pretty bad experience with an awful sales assistant I walked away with a sample of this and the clear improvement mask. The clear improvement mask burnt my skin and left it all sore but I really liked this so I ended up buying this full size. But Origins seriously need to sort their counters out. I went to the one in John Lewis in Edinburgh and the woman didn't know anything about the products. She was actually reading the back of the bottles before recommending them to me. No way would I have bought anything. Then when I went to the one in Glasgow to buy this the sales assistant was quite rude and unhelpful. When I told her that the Clear Improvement mask had burnt my skin and asked for help as to what it might have been her response was 'read the ingredients on the bottle'. Thanks a bunch.

Anyway, rant aside. The Out Of Trouble has been helping me clear up my oily skin. I use this once a week and apply all over my face but more liberally to my t zone where I get the most oily. It's obviously supposed to be left on for 10 minutes but I find that leaving it on a bit longer doesn't do any harm. I normally put it on and potter about, brush my teeth and get ready for bed etc and then wash it off. It comes of very easily as well, nothing worse than standing scrubbing your face for half an hour trying to get that last bit of a pesky face mask off. 

The product itself has a bit of a weird smell. It smells like a bit of a mix between a hospital and mouthwash. I'm not exactly selling it here(although I think I'm doing a better job that either sales assistant) but the weird smell is something that I'm willing to over look considering that this really helps my skin. It contains zinc oxide and sulphur which soak up the oils. I find that after using this my skin feels so much more refreshed and less oily. It's like a clarifying shampoo but for your face.

Despite that at £22 I do think this product is very over priced. It doesn't do anything that I don't think cheaper masks are also capable of. I'll happily use this but I don't think I'll repurchase when it's done. If you have the budget for this then by all means buy it but if you don't then don't sweat it either.
