Review: Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask

I have never tried any of the Origins products but after hearing so many great reviews, I was really intrigued by the Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. I picked up this mask a few weeks ago and I am literally obsessed, what an amazing product! Thank you Origins :)

This mask is designed for anyone with a normal/dehydrated skin type. Dehydration can be caused by a number of reasons, air con, heating, weather, not drinking enough water, drinking too much tea or coffee, bad skin care products and the list goes on. All these things can cause premature ageing, dehydration lines/wrinkles, skin tightness or breakouts, so this little bottle of loveliness may just be your skins savior! It has made a huge difference to the way my skin looks and since using this product my make up goes on really smoothly.

The Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask is a cream/gel consistency. You pop this mask generously all over your skin in the evening (as you may have already guessed by the name haha) and leave it on until the morning. Before you apply this product, you should cleanse the skin, then I like to exfoliate to get the most out of the mask and then pop it straight on (a moisturiser is not needed).
At first I found this a little strange not to leave it 10-15 minutes and then wash off like other masks but this has the texture of a thick moisturiser and doesn't go hard like a clay based mask so it's very comfortable on the skin and you barely realise you have it on. 

On the Origins website they do a free trial with every purchase of this product. This means that when you buy the full-size bottle you receive a sample of it too. If you don't like it, then all you have to do is send the full-size back. But I can tell you now, you will definitely love it as much as I do and wont send it back, but I think it's great they give you the option to try it first.
Origins recommend to use this mask 2-3 times per week or as desired.   

Being in the beauty industry, I am quite fussy about what products I will use on my skin, therefore I was really impressed when I found out that all Origins products are formulated with natural and certified organic ingredients and 100% natural essential oils. They are also formulated without any nasty ingredients, so I'm very excited to try some more of their products in the future.

What are some of your favourite Origins products?
