Most Helpful Positive Review Greatest Mask Ever!
The past several months, my acne had gotten out of control, especially around my eyebrows/forehead and chin area. I had several zits at one time and my skin was an awful texture. I had been using the Zero Oil face wash for a while, and I liked the feeling of my skin right after using it. But within a few hours my skin was back to feeling bumpy, oily, and gross. I had been reading the reviews on several products for a while, and a couple weeks ago I decided to head to my local Origins to purchase a few products to hopefully help improve my skin. Because the reviews for this product were so great, I decided to get a sample of the mask to try it out before purchasing it. I tried it that same night (following the 10 minute instructions) and I woke up with less redness, no zits (when I put it on I had several forming under the skin), and no oil! I was absolutely amazed. I also tried using it as a spot treatment overnight like some other reviews suggested, and I couldn't believe how much it helped overnight. I went out yesterday and purchased the whole product and now I will religiously use this 5 out of 7 nights of the week. My skin is especially oily so I have not noticed that this mask dries out my skin at all, even if I use it often. I personally enjoy the smell as well as the tingly feeling it gives my skin when it is on. Also, a small amount of product goes a long way on the skin, which is great for those like myself that cannot be buying new products every few weeks. I am so pleased with this product and I would recommend it to anyone of any age dealing with difficult acne.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not recommended for hormonal acne
I've had this mask for 8 months now, and I've found that it does a good job of stopping acne that is related to greasy foods and other "self-inflicted" causes. However, I primarily purchased this to help out with some adult hormonal acne I've been experiencing for the last two years. This, unfortunately, has not made a dent in my hormonal acne. I would not purchase again.

I used this mask previously and it really worked to control my acne breakouts. Unfortunately, when I tried it again most recently, it did not perform as before. After also trying some other of Origins products for acne control (this, charcoal clear improvement mask, clear improvement moisturizer), I discovered that the active ingredient salicylic acid is irritating to my skin. I had terrible acne scarring and made my breakouts even worse. I did not experience these side effects when using this product previously. I am really disappointed that Origins does not offer any acne products that do not contain this ingredient. I wanted to try the Zero oil system, but will definitely not since it is advertised as having a stronger concentration of salicylic acid. Please offer some acne products for us women who also have sensitive skin! Origins has been my go to for cosmetics for years. I love that they use plant based natural ingredients in their products and that I can trust there not to be any harmful synthetics, dyes, or other additives in their products. I am still in need of an acne control solution. I really hope Origins will offer some acne control products with an alternative active ingredient in the future.

The Out of Trouble mask works wonders on my skin. I have PCOS and I get some pretty bad break outs from it but this is one of the only masks I can use that actually clear up the big, itchy under the skin type of acne that I get without drying out and irritating my skin more. I find the mask to be very soothing and calming on my skin. I use it as a mask but also as spot treatment to help decrease how bad my acne can look. This mask works fast!
Cute mask but little changes
Chris from Los Angeles, CA
I used to work at origins and really loved using this mask for my after menstrual cycle pimples. I do still love it but it doesn't work the same as it used to. I still use it once in a while but it's not my go to as it used to be. I wouldn't suggest using it if you have very very dry skin especially in the winter.
The Mask is Wonderful, the Size if Disappointing
Kayla K from Pittsburgh, PA
I had this mask and the charcoal mask, both of which I love though I tend to like this one a little more (it's easier to wash off). I haven't bought masks from Origins in a long time because my last masks lasted a while. I waited for Origins Black Friday sale and bought the Out of Trouble mask because I was running low. To say I was shocked when my package arrived is an understatement. I had read about Origins decreasing the size of their packaging but I completely forgot when I placed my order. Origins decreased the size of their packaging by one whole ounce but charges the same price. How is this even logical? This will be the last time I buy from Origins. Their products are great but their business sense is severely lacking to think it's okay to do this to loyal customers. Sorry Origins, but you just lost a customer due to your repackaging choice.
Same price, LESS product
LC10 from Centreville, VA
I love this mask. It works great and is as described. But Origins, you guys are going to start losing customers soon. This mask for example is the same (high) price but now only 2.5oz...it used to be 3.5oz for this price. I didn't notice until it arrived. Ridiculous.
Please stop raising prices and cutting product size!
I will never stop using this product now!

I have dealt with cystic acne all through high school and it would spark in my adult life as well. I am always extremely careful with buying any new product due to almost EVERYTHING breaking me out my whole life. I borrowed this mask from my sister just one night and immediately after taking it off I saw results. I was having an extreme cystic break out on my forehead for weeks and this is the only product that cleared it. I use it as a spot treatment every night and a mask about once a week. You will see a significant difference over night if using this as a spot treatment. I have used all the popular spot treatments and this is the only thing that brought my pimple downs that quickly. If you see an oncoming pimple this will stop it right in its tracks.
Smells and Feels Like Diaper Rash Ointment
NoWay from St. Louis
overwhelming menthol smell and burning of menthol combined with greasy white film reminiscent of diaper rash cream, would not recommend
Stacey from NY
THIS WORKS SOOOO WELLLLL!!!! it literally works within the first time using. After leaving it on for 10-20 minutes and washing it off you can visibly see the pimples decrease in size/redness/painfulness. It has truly become a staple in my skin care routine. I use this everyday and have the clearest skin since I was a pre-pubescent kid (lol)
DO NOT BUY
Lisa from CT
I used this product years ago for breakouts and dabbed a few spots on the left side of my face. I actually slept with it on my skin thinking it would help clear it up over night. What actually happened was that it bleached my face. The whole left side of my face is white. I have olive tone skin so I look tanner than most people, but now all you see on the left is white splotches near my ear down to my chin. I saw a dermatologist asking if this was possible and he couldn't figure it out. No idea how or why this happened, but it definitely was this product. Nothing else would bleach my skin. Now I'm stuck with this permanently.

I can always count on this mask to eliminate a pimple when it shows up. Whether I wear it for 10 minutes or overnight, it always does it's job (the longer you have it on, the better it works). The smell isn't the best but the magic outweighs the smell.
tobytoes from amarillo, tx
Love how cool and refreshing it feels on. it reminds me of the noxema cleaning cream i used growing up. it has a strong fragrance, but to me it's soothing. Feels like it's soaking up all the oils and impurities as it works and my skin feels clean after.
Smells So Bad But Feels So Good!
JLH from WA
I really dislike the smell of this mask, but the results are so worth enduring the smell for 15 minutes. I really like how this mask calms any inflammation in my skin and zaps any breakouts threatening to surface. It also makes my skin look plump and youthful afterwards. Definitely a hit and will continue to use this.
Misdan from Royal Oak, MI
I have oily skin and was hoping this would help control it. Instead, it left a terrible smell on my face and hands. The initial smell when you apply it is not too terrible, but is strong. It reminds me of vics vabor rub, not a beauty product. Once you wash it off, it leaves this weird odor on your hands and face that is hard to get to go away. It usually takes about 24 hours to go away. My husband can usually still smell it also. I could get past the smell if I felt it was actually helping and I saw no help in the oily skin department. Save your money and buy a less expensive face mask that actually works and doesn't leave you stinky.
Smells horrible and irritates my skin
Yess from California
It smells like ajax cleaner and I had a bad reaction on my skin.
A Must Have!!
Mmenifee519 from Medford, NJ
First off, I want to say I absolutely love Origins!! I use many of their products and am obsessed. I got a sample size of this mask and will definitely be ordering. Like a teenage girl in my late 30's, I get a lot of breakouts with my cycle. I've used this mask the week before my period and it's been doing wonders for me! The breaks out have been minimal, and it's not harsh on my skin at all. Love Love Love
THE BEST MASK!!!!
ChristineNicole from Nebraska
This is all I use. I have extremely sensitive skin and am prone to break outs. I use this instead of makeup if I have a zit, it covers it up just like makeup and then I don't freak about putting makeup on my already bad skin. I highly recommend this mask to anyone and everyone especially if you have oily skin or break out often. I've tried countless products, and this is the only one that actually makes my skin better. Used the one I have for 3 + years and I'm just now buying a new one.

this works for my oliy skin,recommend!!
Haley from Texas
Loveeee this mask. I use it 4-5 times a week, typically as a spot treatment for any blemishes I have. I had a painful pimple for 3+ months and I started using this on it and it is finally fading away.
Can't live without it
Lyz from Louisiana
I love this stuff! I use it as a mask and a spot treatment. It gives your skin a fresh feeling as soon as you put it on. It doesn't get rid of breakouts as fast as other spot treatments but it leaves my breakouts calmed and my skin feeling clean.
Yes yes yes
GGforever from Phoenix, AZ
One of my coworkers gave me a sample of this - absolutely hooked and will definitely be buying full size when I'm out. I had a breakout on my chin, put this stuff on the whole area, and bam! After about 20 minutes, Noticeably reduced redness, irritation, and size. Also, blemishes that I felt coming but weren't fully there yet never got a chance to pop up. Both my sister and I tried this with the same results. Can't recommend enough !
A must have mask
Elle27 from Orlando
I use this mask after washing my face and it leaves my skin CLEAR removed all my acne
Jury is still out
Wineplease89 from Washington DC
I developed big horrible red acne lesions after the first application of this mask. I am not convinced that it was a negative reaction to the mask as I have used it about twice a week since then, but around my period I inevitably use the mask and the next day have a couple large breakouts.
Since I'm using the mask for problem acne skin, I can't say this mask makes it worse necessarily - some applications leave my skin glowing and I don't wake up with roaring teenage worthy acne and actually have less redness/irritation.
So for those of you with sensitive/acne prone skin, maybe try to small sampler first before committing to a full size purchase.

My skin after this mask..became the worst skin i have ever seen..I expected more about this expensive mask..breakouts everywhere..i was crying for hours for this skin disaster!!!!!BE carefull!!!!!!!!!!i wish i could return it back!
ThirtySomethingNYC from New York
I try to take very good care of my skin, but I'm prone to breakouts that can be triggered by a variety of factors. This mask as become by go-to. I use it as both a spot treatment and as a preventative mask when I feel a problem coming on.
Great for hormonal acne!
Kpapz from New York
This 10 minute mask immediately calms my skin down. I actually really like the mild scent, and feel that this mask is moisturizing while calming down hormonal acne. A staple in my house!
