Origins Out of Trouble Face Mask review + Luxola discount code BLX-ELOVES

I've only tried one Origins product before and that was their popular Origins Spot remover which does an amazing job of getting rid of those pesky pimples. When Luxola approached me to see if I would do a review of this product, I gamely said yes because I have high hopes for Origins product since they are formulated with organic ingredients, 100% natural essential oil and also without parabens, petroleum or animal ingredients!

Origins Out of Trouble - 10 minute mask to rescue problem skin
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, 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. Origins Out of Trouble® is best for oily and combination skin.

I love how the product comes in a simple squeeze tube, It contains 100ml of product but it should be able to last a long time since I only use a 20cent coin size of it for each application. Since it is suppose to remove excess shine, I would recommend using it once or twice a week if you have combination skin to oily skin, or whenever you feel like using it. I wouldn't recommend using this daily as it might dry out your skin instead.

The product comes in a thick white paste, easy to spread and has a menthol scent to it....sort of reminds me of Vicks Vaporub! I don't mind the scent of the product since it is still relatively pleasant but it might be a turn off to some people. After leaving the mask on for 10 mins, I rinsed my face thoroughly and I like how my skin feels after. Clean and refreshed but not drying at all!
My skin also feels slightly smoother and while I don't have any major visible acne inflammation on my skin to know if the product will work on calming those inflammations, I feel like this product is a good option for me to use when I feel like my skin needs to "de-stress".
I would highly recommend this product if you have combination to oily skin.

The Origins Out of Trouble face mask was given to me by Luxola, which is an e-commerce platform offering a wide variety of beauty products with brands that are unavailable in most brick and mortar shops.
I've purchased a few makeup products from them before and I like the ease and efficiency of their services.
What I love about them is that they offer FREE next day delivery for orders above $10!
Since I was running out of my concealer, I decided to pick up a new one from Luxola (paid for, with my own money).
I picked up the 3CE Waterful Concealer in shade 001.
With each order, you''ll also get to choose two free samples. I picked the Klarity CC lotion (which I absolutely adore using) and another sample size exfoliating scrub. I wish I could pick two of the CC lotion though! My order also came with a sample of Mario Badescu A.H.A Botanical body soap and Super rich olive body lotion.
My concealer was $17 after discount so I basically paid $17 for all of these items!

Luxola also carries Sleek Makeup, which is hugely popular in the UK and they have amazing eyeshadow palettes and blush that any makeup addict should try! Other brands that they carry includes Zoeva, Sigma beauty, 3CE, MOR, Klarity, Koh Gen Do, Egyptian Magic, Covet london...and many more!

Good news!
