Origins face masks.... Winner or Loser?

Iv given 3 popular origins face masks a try to see how good they are, do they do what they claim to do? and are they worth the £23 price tag. My answer is yes, keep reading to find out why!

Winner - Origins 'Out Of Trouble' Mask
This is my favourite out of the 3. Its white and thick in consistency, almost like if you mixed toothpaste and chalk with a bit of charcoal (if that EVEN makes sense) I spread an even layer over my face usually when in the bath but ensuring I don't touch my face with wet hands as this stuff needs to dry. I leave it for around 10 minutes which is the recommended time, then take it off with a warm damp muslin cloth - skin feels really refreshed and smooth and the next day looks so much clearer - I LOVE it! I'm at the end of my tube and probably have about one use left!

Origins 'Intensive Drink Up' Overnight Mask
This one smells like a delicious fruity peach drink that you could just gulp! (but don't) as the name suggests this one is better for dry skins. Its weird because to start with this broke me out and I wasn't a massive fan. Then I went back to it and loved it, I don't use it everyday though usually about 1-2 times a week. I put it on just like I would a moisturiser in the evenings, its a very thick consistency but it does dry - I wouldn't put it on just as you are about to get into bed though because it will annoy you with the wet thick residue, having said this it does glide on the skin like butter. When I wake up my skin is smooth, soft and supple!

Origins 'Clear Improvements' Mask
This is a charcoal mask that claims to unclog pores. This is my least favourite out of the 3 but for this reason its also my most least tried one. This one is designed to rid skin and pores of everyday dirt and pollution. I don't have much to say about this other than it does make your skin feel very clean afterwards.
