This has been my favorite mask since 2004. It never makes me break out. I use it all year round. My skin can become flaky due to retin-a use and unlike other masks this treats your skin w/ great ingredients but never dries me out....much different than your typical clay mask that can cause dryness. Love this! This is one of the few products that I can say I search for no replacement or better product --- this is it! The best.
I also love that it is in a soft tube. It is sanitary, keeps the product from drying out prematurely (as opposed to a jar), and since the tube is very soft it helps you squeeze out precise amounts and use up every last drop, no waste.

I really love masks as a ritual and have tried a number of Body Shop ones which were okay. But most of them would incite acne flare-ups, even the tea tree, so I stopped into Orgins to see what they recommended. The woman said this is especially good for my skin type and I actually like the camphor scent a lot. I love how it will dry after 10 min unlike some masks which stay wet. Yet it's not so dry I'm leaving crumbs everywhere like the BS tea tree one. I have noticed an improvement even though no mask will cure hormonal flare ups, it seems to lessen their size and redness. The non-Tzone parts of my face are quite smooth after it's use. I took a sample of the mushroom mask and while it was okay, am so glad I went with the full size Out of Trouble instead of it. This and their rice scrub are the two products of theirs I'll go back for for sure.

I use whenever I feel like my skin is 'in trouble'. It re-texturizes (I know, I didn't believe it at first, but I can tell it does) and seems to suck out impurities on my face. I let it dry for 10 mins and wash off with water. It will tend to stick to areas that are dry and it'll be harder to remove it from those areas, and that's where I would usually concentrate my moisturizer. Recently, the dryness has been on the lower cheeks near the jaw. I love this and would buy it again. It's $20 which is steeper than Burt's Bees French Clay mask, which I also love, but which I think is discontinued. This is so much more convenient being in a tube, and I will definitely repurchase when I run out.

I love this mask for occasional acne flare ups. I have used it as a whole face mask, but mostly I use it in areas where I need some help. It helps clear up existing blemishes and prevents new ones. It flakes as it dries, so I only use it after eating/drinking. Sometimes I apply a thin layer, let it dry, and go to bed. It has never harmed or bleached my pillowcases or sheets like products with benzoyl peroxide will. Because I spot/patch treat and I only occasionally get acne, the tube lasts a very long time. I've had mine over a year and it hasn't dried out and there is plenty left. I clean up the lid every few uses to make sure it seals well and doesn't let air in. I would definitely repurchase this if I finished the tube or had it so long that if eventually dried out.

i'm really not sure whether this mask is doing me any good...... it seems like whenever i do this mask my skin will have more pimples popping out for days after........maybe it's pulling out craps to the surface but i really rather them come out bit by bit instead of all coming out at once which is really not prettty.......i dun think i will ever use it again.........

This is a good mask. It helps when I have a break out and I use it sometimes as a single spot treatment. It does flake off so you can't use it overnight. I would give it 5 but it is quite expensive. It does last longer than the Clear Improvement Mask however.

I prefer to use this overnight as a spot treatment - it does a good job of shrinking big zits, use 2-3 nights in a row and the pimple is much reduced. Better than most pimple treatments!

The mask has a thick consistency but spreads easily. It is white in color, has a soothing spa scent and it does not harden when dry. I do not get a "tightened" feeling after I wash it off.
Since I have only used it a few times, I cannot say that it does for acne after long term use but I have used it to spot overnight to treat big pimples and it seems to help reduce with the inflammation and redness.
I will update after a few weeks.

I've been through a couple tubes of this. I currently have combo, sensitive skin but used to have oily cystic acne skin (before Accutane) and my husband has oily acne prone skin. This works well for both of us, and worked relatively well before the Accutane (though, really, nothing ACTUALLY worked).
We both really like this as an overnight treatment on problem spots rather than a mask. When it's on for only 10 - 30 minutes, it doesn't seem to do much and ALL of that caked on over the whole face smells a bit. But dabbed on a zit it seems to shrink it - it made cysts smaller and less red, and bumps seem to heal faster. This didn't do much for blackheads, but the charcoal one was WONDERFUL for that.

After trying peels and scrubs and god knows what to clear up the raging cystic acne that blew up on my face after moving across the country, this has been the only product to actually make a difference with my skin. I use this almost 4 times a week and I don't experience anything adverse. I have combo oily skin and this is great at crontolling the oil. I actually love the smell.

I got 2 small sample pots of this from the sales promoter at the Origins counter. Initially, this made my skin so nice and smooth. However, after the third use, I got small bumps all over my cheeks and along my jawline so I've stopped using this all over my face. Got the idea to use it as an overnight spot treatment from some of the reviews here. While the pimple doesn't vanish the next morning, it is significantly smaller, and flattens out within 3-4 days. I don't think I'll be purchasing the actual product as I think the samples will be able to last me for quite long (since I'm using this only as a spot treatment).

Great mask. I use it two ways - Once a week as a full mask (sometimes twice because I just love the way it makes my skin look the next day) and also as an overnight spot treatment. It's a sulfur/zinc oxide/camphor based mask. And yes, it smells strongly of camphor - but that doesn't bother me at all - it's certainly better then smelling like sulfur! It helps heal cystic acne better then most I've tried...and as a full mask it just makes my skin very even looking, less oily, but still glowing! I really see a difference in my skin the next day. I'm a mask junkie and love buying and trying new masks and this is 1 or maybe 5 I really love enough to have repurchased, that's saying a lot for this product!

I have been using Out of Trouble for about three years now. It is the ONLY mask I've ever used that actually does something for me. I have very acne prone skin that reacts poorly to just about everything it comes in contact with. This mask is gentle enough (although I would not call myself "sensitive.") and the sulphur/salicylic acid combo clears my acne over night. I like that it has camphor because it seems to calm the redness of my breakouts. I personally love the smell. It is reminiscent of original Noxema cream, which makes me very nostalgic. There is a slight sulphur after-smell, but it never bothered me and my boyfriend hasn't ever noticed. If you do well with sulphur, give it a shot.

I use this as only a spot treatment when I see the beginnings of a pimple. This product made me break out even more than before, so I only use this product when something start to show beneath the surface.
I would not recommend using this product as an all over face mask.
The smell is nice, but can get overwhelming.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Black, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Brown
not a magic spot treatment, but good for preventing breakouts. i smear a thin stripe of this about 3 times a week on my forehead, nose, chin- where i always get breakouts. once i do get a zit, i use DDF sulfur mask to dry it up. but this is great + not overdrying. pricey, but lasts a long time for me cuz i use so little each time.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Green
Pros - natural and lasts forever
Cons - cant tell if its just not effective, or actually makes me break out more.
Really strong scent, a little goes a long way, it just doesn't help my breakouts. So sad. I was hoping this would be a miracle product but it's totally not.

A very good mask for acne treatment. Does its job in one to two applications. Goes on easy and rinses off easy. It has a slightly thicker texture and a little goes a long way. You want to cover the area, not drown it.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Olive, Warm Hair: Black, Medium Eyes: Black
Personally I like the smell and find it therapeutic, though it may be too strong for other people. The mask is tingly once you've applied it and I like to leave it on for slightly longer than 10 minutes before I use a warm washcloth to wipe it off. I find it makes a difference from just washing it off your face with water, the steam from the washcloth helps to open up the pores too and I feel really refreshed afterwards.
The cost is slightly high for what I would normally budget for a mask but you have to spend money for the products you like.
The packaging is clean, simple. Nothing special.
I would buy this again but I think the Origins brand has pulled out of the Pacific region. There's still plenty in circulation though and I would buy it online, hopefully at a bargain price.

I think this helps to prevent breakouts from getting worse, but only if I don't leave it on for longer than 10 minutes (like the product suggests). I've tried to leave it on longer, but it only exacerbated the problem since it just dried my skin out too much. I only use it on the affected area and the area slightly surrounding that "just in case".
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
This is a good mask, I'd recommend it for people with acne-prone skin. I've used it about 5 times now. It's not as magical as it claims to be though, you still have the same face after 10 minutes :)
It does help preventing new break-outs though and it calm upset skin, makes it less bumpy, less red.
It is a very, very thick creamy white paste. The packaging is nice, just a normal tube, nothing fancy, but I like it. You can apply a thin coat or a thicker coat on your face and I'm guessing it will last me quiet a while.
When you apply it, it starts to heat up and feel tingly. A little bit like Tiger Balm, if you are familiar with that. I'm guessing it's the camphor.
I'm not a big fan of that camphor smell, it's strong!
After the heat subsides it has a cooling effect, which I like. After a few minutes it will dry, but not flake. It's easier to remove it with a wet washcloth than just water. It leaves your skin feeling calmed and clean. It's also very refreshing. Thumbs up!
