Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask to Quench Skin's Thirst

Origins make one of my favourite masks, the Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask To Clear Pores, so I've wanted to try more product from them. You can never go wrong with adding more hydration to your skin so I picked up their Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask, which is supposed to provide the skin with intensive moisture and prevent premature signs of aging and dehydrated skin.

The Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask comes in a green plastic tube with various amounts of product. Mine has 75 ml and there are larger and smaller sizes available (including one-use sized pods, which are perfect for travelling). The product itself feels like a rich creamy moisturizer and has a slight off-white yellowish/green tint to it and smells super fruity, creamy, delicious and refreshing. I want to say it smells like mangos but it contains apricot kernel oil, so maybe that's actually what it smells like.
It spreads on the skin easily and leaves a protective layer (not greasy or sticky, but slightly tacky) on the skin. I only use it at night (and leave it on overnight) and often more than the recommended twice a week. Depending on other products I apply before it, it doesn't always sink in completely (depending on how parched my skin is feeling), so it's a good idea to apply it at least 30 minutes before going to bed, so it doesn't mostly end up on the pillow case. I particularly like to use it after deep cleansing and exfoliating treatments (masks) and it helps to rebalance the skin, boost it with some hydration and make it feel much softer.
It is also perfect to use when travelling (especially on long-haul flights) or if you want to skip a long line of products and use something that will work in a pinch. If my skin is feeling particularly irritated I can feel a slight tingle, probably due to pretty strong fragrance, so super sensitive skins might not enjoy this. Because the product is so rich, I only need a small amount (about a pea size), so this tube will probably last me for a while. In general it is a lovely and rich moisturizing treatment, which helps keep any dry patches away (or at least to a minimum) and I also notice that my skin is less oily and prone to breakouts when I keep it hydrated enough.

Applied to the skin:
I can see this mask working for most skin types (mine is oily, dehydrated and acne-prone), particularly anyone looking to add some hydration into their skincare routine. 
Available here and here (currently with a GWP offer for the brand).

  1. Sem jo kupila izključno zato, ker sem slišala, da diši po breskvah in sem bila potem čisto razočarana :) Kot vlažilna maska mi je bila ok, ampak od Balee Power Maske ima enak učinek na meni.

    1. Meni ima bolj tropski vonj, ampak se ne morem odločiti po čem točno diši :) Se spomnim tvoje omembe v eni od objav, da ti tale maska ni bila nič posebnega..meni pa ravno Baleina Power Maska ni ustrezala :)
