Origins Out Of Trouble 10 minute mask...

According to the tube, Out of Trouble is a "10 minute mask to rescue problem skin". The tube also goes on to say, "When skin is too slick or when more pressing problems start to pop up, it's Origins to the rescue to keep skin out of trouble. Nature's trouble-shooters, including super-absorbent Zinc Oxide and Sulfur, calming Camphor, plus skin-sloughing Salicylic Acid, rapidly respond to problem skin's plight with a three part plan -- sop up oily-shine, slough off sticky, dead cells, and sweep away irksome debris. Together they steer skin clear of slippery situations, refine rough texture, and pull the plug on troublemakers to oust potential outbursts."

This is my new lifesaver...!!! This is my absolute rescue remedy for spots, breakouts and oily phases... The consistency of the mask is creamy, something like toothpaste, but it is very easy to apply and spread on your skin. The Camphor gives it a slight tingling feeling, but it's pleasant, not uncomfortable, or burning at all, the smell of sulfur/camphor is strong but bearable. One thing I especially liked was that this isn't the kind of mask that dries so tight that you can't move your mouth. And it also didn't crumble and flake off when I moved my mouth. It was very light and smooth, and I didn't feel like I was wearing a mask at all.

I can see
immediate difference after first used, my skin is more even and brighter, pores is slightly smaller too... Skin feels so clean and fresh, not drying and tight at all and it's definately not those oily feel and it's moisturizing too... I was so impressed and loving this mask, all you need is just layer over clean face and throat (avoid eye area), wait for 10 minutes and remove with a damp washcloth or facial sponge and you're done... You can do it 1-2 times a week help maintain skin's balance...

Another alternative way is you can dot a teeny weeny amount on breakouts/spots and leave it OVERNIGHT, yes, use as pimple cream but very little amount and don't apply for whole face overnight, it'll be too strong for it... And you'll wake up the next day and see the breakouts/spots is dries up or smaller...

I have tried many clay/deep cleansing masks, but none of them have worked as well as this one... And I love the fact that it only needs 10 minutes to do it's job... It's retailing for RM95 for a 100ml tube, and it's last you quite some time since don't need to apply it thick, just thin layer and more on problem area will do...

Ingredients: water (aqua purificata) purified, cetyl esters, zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, cetyl alcohol, cetearyl alcohol, glycerin, glyceryl stearate, peg-100 stearate, camphor, ceteareth-20, salicylic acid, colloidal sulphur, butylene glycol, bentonite, methyl and propylparaben.

  1. ooo i've heard of this before

    maybe i should try queen helene mint julep masque. have you tried that before?

  2. Yarr, i tried that... It's very drying and very hard to remove, the paste is too hard also, hard to spread... But it's cooling and the skin does feel cleaner...
