Pamper Day Essential - Origins Charcoal Mask

Vacation day tomorrow to spend time with my boyfriend who passed his qualifying exam today! He's officially a PhD Candidate and can continue on with his studies. Not sure what we'll be up to tomorrow. Maybe biking along the lake, spending the day in the city, going for a run because it'll be cool? It's been a while since I've taken a true vacation day, and here I am taking one tomorrow, and a whole week next week!

So obviously, tonight I'm going to treat myself to a face mask, specifically this Origins Charcoal Mask. I've been using this one since Christmas - which is when I received it as a gift. I didn't realize that charcoal was such a beauty trend. This is quite an affordable one - 3.4 oz will set you back $25 and it lasts a long while. I've actually got the smaller version of this which is $17 and 1.7 oz and like I said, I've had it for 8 months now and it's just half empty.

I do a thin layer on the face, let it work in, and then gently wipe it off with a warm, damp towel. I can't say it does anything above and beyond, but my skin feels smoother and looks healthier. This could be for a variety of reasons... the charcoal, or the physical exfoliation when I take the mask off! Regardless, I really enjoy it, and it's such a treat to have time to do a face mask.

Anyway, I'm lounging around the house this evening with some green tea and this mask! Hope you all had a great day!
