Origins Clear Improvement Mask - Review

Saturday, January 05, 2013




To all my fellow oily skinned readers with problematic pores I dedicate this post to you as 
the product I am about to wax lyrical about really is a case of if you buy this mask your life will better, 
well at the very least your skin will be.

Origins Clear Improvement Mask has quickly become my holy grail facial mask
as it does what it says on the tin, something I'm sure we can all agree is pretty rare in the beauty world.
Nothing else leaves my skin looking glowing, plump and radiant which professionals have struggled to achieve with my less than cooperative skin type.

Origins Clear Improvement Mask features active charcoal which acts like a magnet clearing clogged pores deep down, removing all traces of oil, dirt and make-up.
Admittedly before applying this mask I was ever the skeptic as so far most pore aimed products have been full of empty promises but I can assure that this really does clear enlarged pores 
and in turn tightens them too so they appear smaller.
I can also imagine this to be great for those who have issues with blackheads.

Clear Improvement also contains White China Clay that not only absorbs toxins but lifts any impurities to the surface of the skin so you may notice a blemish or two the first few times you use it. 
I did sport a blemish the first two uses on my chin which isn't typically a problem area for me but they disappeared as quickly as they reared their ugly heads which was a relief.

For a product you only have to use once a week yet reap a whole world of benefits particualry
I can not recommend this enough.
If you have enlarged/clogged pores let this be your next purchase, 
I promise you will wonder what how you ever survived without it from the first use!

Now I have the dilemma of what Origins mask to invest in next?

  2. Oh this looks great. I've got oily skin and MASSIVE pores and nothing seems to work on it. Will definitely be picking this up! So nice to see a blog post for the oily skinned ladies out there, everything seems to always focus on dry skin. Really excited to pick this up. Thanks!

  3. Does this work just as well for normal skin as much as oily? I am prone to blackheads and a little oil on my nose, other than that it's normal. I'll be getting one of these in an origins gift set in the post next week, I don't want to slap anything on that's going to dry my skin out!! X

    1. Hey :) I don't find it particularly drying but perhaps to be on the safe side you could just apply it to the areas that need it and leave the rest of the skin bare? x

    2. Yeah that's a good idea, I don't often find face masks that don't break me out anyway so that's good thinking!! Thanks :) x

  7. Oooh I seriously need this mask in my life! It's been on my wish list for a while but now it's definitely going on the "to buy" list!!

    I use Out of Trouble a fair amount which is amazing for when you have a bad blemish break out, soothes the skin and calms down any redness :) amazing!

  8. I love this face mask! I want to try the Out of Trouble face mask next xx

  9. I've heard lots of good things about this face mask and the Out Of Trouble mask. It's always good to read something written by someone who also has oily skin! I find that a lot of blogs I read are written by those with normal or dry skin.

    Do Origin's do this mask in a sample size? I despise spending money on products that I haven't tried out, just in case they don't react well with my skin!

    1. Haha queen of the oily skin right here ;)
      They do sell mini's every now and then but I don't think they are permanent that being said I have never actively sought them out other than a quick glimpse on their site so maybe ask at your nearest counter?
      So sorry I can't give you a certain answer.

    2. You can always go to sephora and ask them to give you a sample! They actually give you quite a bit.

  14. I have really oily skin too and have been looking for something to help. I tried a few and was looking at this one and the dermalogica one, but now I've seen this I think I might go for this one!

  15. I've tried this as samples before and it did nothing for me! My blackheads and pores were the same each time I used it (4 times). Most origins products make me brek out in rashes on my face! So at least this didn't. The only things that have worked for my blackheads and pores I the oil cleansing method and the clarisonic!

  25. My God this sounds like the answers to my prayers in a tube. The only way this could get better is if there was a pug on the tube and a chocolate bar attached.
