Origins, Maker Of The Best Face Masks, Has Done It Again

Origins, Maker Of The Best Face Masks, Has Done It Again

There are plenty of face masks out there with a cult following, but my personal favorite is Origins Clear Improvements Active Charcoal Mask. I wrote a post about it a long time ago, and it's been in my regular rotation ever since. When my skin is super dry and needs an extra dose of moisture, I turn to Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. This one I also wrote about some time ago, as it is a favorite of mine to use when I have a cold or allergies and my nose is red and flaky. (I also use it as an eye cream when my undereye area is super dry. Proceed with caution, but if your eyes aren't sensitive and you proceed with caution it works wonders.)

Now there's a new Origins mask in my menagerie, and it's yet another winner. The Original Skin Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay is a purifying mask (similar to Clear Improvements) but it has an added element of refining from jojoba beads, which you massage into your skin to exfoliate as you wash off the mask. Those mad geniuses at Origins have also thrown in some Canadian willow herb to counteract any redness or changes in skintone, which means this could be a great mask for those of us who want a refining, resurfacing mask, but also suffer from finicky skin.

This trio of Origins masks also looks chic and spa-like in your medicine cabinet. I mean, I'd imagine it would. In my medicine cabinet they're all together, making me look very brand-loyal and sophistaced, but they're also stored next to dog toothpaste.
