Origins Plantidote™ Mega-Mushroom Face Mask

I purchased this Origins Plantidote™ Mega-Mushroom Face Mask few months ago and am very pleased with the mask. As my skin is sensitive and turned red very easily, I find that this mask is very useful especially after my own mini facial (i.e. extract blackhead). 

Just need to apply 10 to 15 minutes and wash off. 

The ingredients: Mega Mushroom Blend plus Chinese Black Bamboo Leaf extract, marine algae and moisture replenishing plant extracts that is clinically proven to reduce redness.

It is a bit pricy but it worked for me.

Price: 100ml for RM190
Rating : 4/5
Will I repurchase: Most likely
smell: not very pleasant, smells like herbs
skin type: for all skin types (It is also suitable for my oily skin)

Below is the quotation taken from Origins website:


Clinically proven to visibly reduce redness.

Too much sun, wind and dehydration. Too many hours on a plane, too many days burning the candle at both ends. With life so taxing, the list of daily stressors can easily go on and on. Effects accumulate, and your skin needs extra help to break the cycle. This creamy treatment mask with Hypsizygus ulmarius, Cordyceps and Reishi mushrooms along with Ginger, Holy Basil and Turmeric rushes relief to challenged skin to rapidly soothe signs of compromise. Chinese Black Bamboo Leaf Extract, celebrated for centuries as a symbol of eternal youth, quells and calms visible redness and reactivity. And a unique blend of marine algae and moisture-replenishing plant extracts helps revitalize and restore luminosity to stressed skin and rebuild a protective barrier to help avoid future flare-ups.

After one use:
• 92% of those tested agreed it helps uncomfortable, dry skin feel better.
• 84% of women said it provides comforting care to skin.
• 82% rated it extremely effective in hydrating their skin.

HOW TO USE: Use twice weekly. Apply liberally. Unwind for 10 minutes. Tissue off.

Mega Mushroom Blend and Bamboo leaf as ingredients sound so exotic! I must confess I haven't used a mask for ages!

Do you use anything to wash off the mask or just rinse with hands?

Hi Juliet

I only use water to rinse, with hand not cloth/sponge. But u can try using cloth if you want the clean feeling.
