on origins drink up overnight mask review

Origins seems to be something of a cult brand among beauty bloggers - yet with it's premium pricing and with a few brand loyalties already in place, it wasn't really a brand that I'd experimented with until recently. The wonderful Laura at the Origins counter hooked me up with some samples just before the festival kicked off, and I have to say I'm a convert. The one saving grace through the long days and late nights had to be the Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. February was the month I pretty much put my skin through hell and this overnight moisturising mask was a god send. I'd wash my make up off at the end of a night (or god forbid use a face wipe) and my skin would just feel really tight - so this guy seemed like a good shout. The mask itself has a gel like texture - and I suppose if you don't like scents in your products it's not for you. It's got a really nice natural fruity scent of apricots and feels really fresh and nourishing going on to your skin. My skin the next day would be noticeably softer and I could near enough pass as a normal human being. I used it twice a week during the fortnight of festival madness and it prevented my skin from descending in to fresh hell.
That said - the formula is a bit rich. I found if I used it more I would break out. I think when operating at normal capacity this is a nice weekly treat for the skin. At £20 for 100ml it's a bit more than I'd usually spend on a weekly treatment yet the results are visible and it does smell amazing. I think this might be something that could sneak in to my regular beauty buys quite easily.


  1. I'm a bit of an origins fan myself. ALWAYS use Checks and Balances on my face and this week changed my moisturiser from A Perfect World to something with 'Zing' in the title. Anyway, it's oil free which is a must for me and it also has a slight tint to even things out. Very pleased with the results. It can be a bit pricey, but Origins products last me 4-6 months easily, so it's actually more economical then buying cheaper versions for £5/6 every month.

    I swear by Aveda hair products too!

  2. Has it got a lot of perfume in it?

  3. Madame G: Checks & Balance is uh-mazing. It's become my morning face wash of choice and my face always feels all kind of fresh after. Going to be switching moisturisers soon so think a trip to the origins counter is in order.

    Marthaamay: Not a lot no...just natural fruity scent


  4. I got my step mum some origins stuff for her birthday, it all smelled AMAZING but totally 'natural' as youve mentioned. Would really like to get some for myself xx
