Skincare: Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask

Hello beauties, I wanted to show you my new skin care purchase I'm absolutely in love with (I know what a bold statement right from the start yeah?) I had heard endless raves about this charcoal mask for ages and on Saturday my skin was AWFUL after a Clean & Clear exfoliator (the vitamin C one) totally broke my skin out into a horrible mess. I only used it as I had ran out of my beloved St Ives exfoliator too so I was so annoyed and feeling pretty crappy if I'm honest. So when browsing online I couldn't resist making a purchase.

The clear improvement mask is a charcoal consistency and when applied to the skin works to draw impurities out from the pores. As someone who suffers with combination skin-oily, dry, acne prone-all which lead to clogged pores and pimples. It's like I can instantly feel it drawing out all of the grime and dirt not just from the top layer of skin but from well underneath too. Also another thing I loved about applying this clay mask is it only took 5-10 minutes to go dry/hard which is when you need to rinse it off, but once rinsed my severe redness I had been having around all of my spots was completely banished.

This made applying concealer and makeup a lot better.  It honestly felt like I had been and had a facial and I definitely noticed a difference. If you are someone that suffers from oily or combination skin I can't recommend this enough. It also didn't break me out on first use but actually made my skin feel a lot clearer and fresh. I bought this off the Origins website on Saturday and it arrived Tuesday which is pretty good. I bought the smaller 50ml one for £11 and the 100ml one is £22, basically I wanted to try it out and see if it worked for me before parting with £22 ha! But I can definitely say I will 100% keep repurchasing this and buying the bigger one next time.

Even if you don't suffer from this type of skin we all need a pamper night from time to time and to treat our skin to a face mask when we are feeling a bit run down or stressed and this is the perfect one!

Do you love any of the Origins face masks?
