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.
