A lovely package from Luxola arrived last week. 

Inside contained 3 masks from one of my favourite brands, Origins. Origins is not new to me, in fact, I bought my first mask from them. 

I bought my first Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask because I wanted a mask that could clean out my skin and clear my pores. It does a great job of drawing out pore-clogging impurities for a deep-down clean. The only downside is that the mask will leave your skin feeling a tad dry so I always follow up with a sheet mask or Origins Drink up Intensive Overnight Mask to re-hydrate my skin. 

Over the years, Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask has been my go-to mask for when I feel like my skin needs a good "detox". I've purchased at least 10 tubes over the past 11 years and it still does wonders for my skin. I would put it on for about 20-30 minutes before washing it off and then applying a replenishing mask to lock in moisture.

Origins Drink up Intensive Overnight Mask on the other hand has a smooth, buttery texture. It has all the beneficial ingredients that makes it a great overnight mask to put on when you feel your skin needs a boost of moisture.

I usually like to put this one when I'm taking a nap and even then, 1-2 hours of this mask is more than enough to feel the difference. After rinsing your face, my face will still feel slightly buttered so I always use a toner after. 

The mask contains avocado and apricot kernel oil, which are excellent vitamins for the skin. Japanese Seaweed is also present in this mask to restore youth and health in dull skin. Origins' Drink up Intensive Overnight Mask also helps smoothen skin's texture and defends the skin against premature ageing.

Both of these masks have been a staple in my skincare routine, but I was really excited to discover a new orange coloured tube in the package as well. I could smell it even before I unwrapped the packaging! It has a sweet, invigorating scent that wakes you up instantly. 

With it comes to a gel mask like this one, I love storing it in the refrigerator so it'll turn icy cool. When you apply it on your face, it tingles immediately and closes up all the pores!  Origins GinZing Face Mask contains coffee beans that energise, cucumber that refreshes and  hoelen mushroom that soothes the skin. After applying it for 15 minutes and washing off the product, my skin feels bouncy and glowy :) An uplifting mask for dull, tired skin.

Origins offers masks to treat all your skincare woes. From clogged pores, to dull complexion and tired, de-hydrated skin, Origins offers a wide range of masks that combats these problems. My personal favourite is definitely the Charcoal Mask, use it once and you'll notice the difference! It's great using them one after the other. I like to use them once or twice a week, one after the other for best results :)
