It’s no surprise that pink is one of my favourite colours (duh!) and since it’s National Pink Day today, I thought I’d talk about a mask that I love that is also pink! I’ve been a fan of Origins for a while and even though I haven’t tried too many of their products, I like a lot of their masks and most of them work well with my skin. But this one – the Original Skin Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay ($32) – I think it’s safe to say that it’s my favourite so far!
One reason I love this mask so much is that it’s a two-in-one product. It purifies your skin while refining its texture, all in just 10 minutes! Formulated with Canadian willowherb, Persian silk tree, and a potent blend of active ingredients, it boosts the skin’s overall quality. It also gently deep cleans while refining the skin’s texture and giving a radiant and youthful complexion that we all want to achieve!
This mask has a fresh citrus scent that doesn’t really linger, and the texture is thick with visible jojoba beans as an exfoliant. After I cleanse my face, I apply a thin layer on my entire face and leave it on for no more than 10 minutes. I then go in and wet my hands to gently massage in circular motions to get rid of those bumps and dead skin cells. You can feel the grittiness, but it’s not so abrasive that your skin would get red or sensitive. And finally, I rinse everything off and put on my skincare products right away to maximize absorption!
My skin is always tight and smooth right after I use this mask. Not only it feels softer, the mask also gives that super clean feeling without actually stripping moisture out of your skin as long as you don’t leave it on for too long. (I always set a timer when using clay/mud masks!) I also find that the product just feels luxe when you put it on – the scent, the texture, and the fact that it’s so pretty and pink! After I use this mask, I immediately feel that my pores are smaller and that my skin is retexturized. It also helps with keeping my oiliness at bay so if you’re an oily/combo girl like me, you’ll definitely enjoy this.
The last thing I want to mention about this mask is that it lasts quite a while. I like to use it no more than twice a week, and I find that one bottle can get you at least 12-15 uses. Which, if you think about it, is a pretty good deal for $32! You don’t need a lot of it to get your entire face and like I mentioned, it’s a mask and an exfoliator in one. If you haven’t seen or tried this product before, check it out!
