The Weekend Post #23: Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask

The Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask – it’s no surprise is it that this has cropped up in a post of its own, is it? I have been using this mask for about month now and I think it’s fair to say that this will be a staple in my skincare routine from this day forward. There seems to be quite a buzz about this product at the moment, I’d seen both Lily and Caroline raving about it, and from my experience with it so far I’ll be joining that gang too.

I’d never used a mask like this before. It’s a clear cream with a slightly gel-like consistency that you apply a thick layer of as the last step in your skincare routine before you go to bed and in the morning your skin has quite literally ‘drunk it up’! In basic terms it’s a intense moisture replacement mask that quenches moisture reserves and contains a host of anti-dehydration ingredients. As with all Origins products it’s packed with plenty of killer and no filler.

It’s designed for dry and dehydated skintypes. Now my skin certainly isn’t dry, however my normal/oily complexion isn’t as greasy as it once was and I’ve noticed a few flaky bits appearing around my eyebrow and forehead area so thought that the Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask would come in handy for treating that. I use this around twice a week in the evenings and I have to say I couldn’t be more impressed. I use about a pea-size amount and when I wake up in the morning my skin is practically glowing. In fact I account that face that I have been going lighter on the foundation these days heavily down to this. My skin feels and looks jucier, the dry patches are gone and I’m one happy bunny. Not only are the results amazing but it smells great too, refreshing and fruity. Even just writing about it makes me want to use it now!

So tonight I will be happily slathering this all over my face! Another great thing is that a 100ml tube of this costs £20 which is good value for such a high-quality and effective skincare product, plus it will last you a while. Have any of you guys tried it? What do you think? Or do you have another favourite hydrating mask?

    Want this so much!!! It’s top of my list currently :’)

    I’m torn now between trying this and one of the Sisley face masks – they are obviously a lot more expensive but I’ve heard such good things about them……

  • Becky

    Ah I love the idea of slapping this on before bed and waking up to a glowing complexion. The no mess no fuss idea really appeals to me and Origins is a brand I am desperate to try more of. I just however got the REN mask on your rec so am looking forward to giving that a go tonight πŸ™‚ x

    My oily skin is slowly starting to disappear and I’m definitely not well prepared to cater for this dry patches situation. This seems like the perfect product to try. I may use my Boots points on this one. πŸ™‚

  • Jem

    I brought this from John Lewis yesterday and I have to agree it is amazing!

  • TattooedTeaLady

    Sounds like a lovely mask and I’ve read some great reviews of it! Unfortunately I have very oily skin so I don’t think this would be suitable for my skin, so I doubt I will ever get to try it myself xo

  • natasha

    This sounds like it would be great to use on long flights to keep skin nice πŸ˜‰

  • Morochan

    Really want to try this out now <3

  • Sophia

    Thanks so much for writing a separate review on this! I do have oily/combination skin too, but I love the idea of having a hydrating mask overnight! Sounds good for long haul flights too! Definitely putting it on my wish list πŸ™‚ xxx

  • I love Origins skin care products, they’re such good quality and value for money.. I think I may try this in the near future when I’m on holiday, as I find my skin goes quite dry when I wear sunscreen.. This could be the perfect answer!

  • I use a sisley hydrating mask now and then.. but thats mega expensive like all sisley products.. Other ones I use that are alot cheaper but effective is a collagen mask by champney’s and their re surfacing mask isn’t too bad either… However I have my eye on a couple of Dermalogica’s mask’s they’ve a vitamin enriched one that I’ve done a few client facials on and they seem pretty good.. Also their hydrating one is most excellent.. infact Lisa Elridge recently had it in one of her video’s so if its good enough for her its good enough for me.

    I’ll be trying this out soon. Thanks for sharing Vivianna. My skin is such a mess right now with dry patches so hopefully this product will be my saviour. πŸ™‚

  • I’ve been thinking about buying this! I was tossing up between the coal mask and this one, but I think you’ve persuaded me :)

  • ES

    I have oily/combination skin and this mask has made my skin break out so badly. I am prone to breakouts but I’ve never had it this bad before. I’m so sad it’s done this to my skin. I think it was just a little too heavy for my troubled skin. It does smell amazing though.

  • Danielle Clements

    I have this and love it too. it’s amazing!! x Danielle

  • Clay Butterfleyes

    This masks sounds amazing ! Lovely review πŸ™‚ xx

  • sounds amazing. I’ve been wanting to try a few origins products so will have to add this to the list! x

  • hillgateplace

    Love this! I’m in the USA at the moment and was umming and ahhing about whether to get the origins mask, but reading this review makes me want to go to the mall right now! Thank you!

    Hmm, the last time I used an overnight mask it clogged up my pores and got some blemishes the next morning. Did you get any blemishes from this mask at all? (: xx

  • Eliza Powrie

    origins is one of my favourite skincare companions – I’m definitely going to try this! I love their spot gel as well!

  • CΓ’β„’Β 

    oh it’s a sleeping pack. These are popular in Asia- lots of brands have them, most of them hydrating, some of them brightening, whitening or firming. The laneige water sleeping pack is one of the most popular. I had no idea western brands also released stuff like this- will have to check it out! I love these type of masks. They’re so easy~

  • I want to try this so badly – I think your review may have convinced me to finally purchase πŸ™‚

    There’s a 50ml one for £11 too! ELEVEN POUNDS! That’s incredible, especially considering that Origins moisturisers are 50ml too, and they linger rather close to the £40 mark.

  • Eleanor

    I love this..I suffer with spots quite often and have combination skin..this completely calms down redness and makes my skin feel plumper and generally happier ! Can’t recommend it enough. Also have the 10 minute version which is also great if skin feels slightly tight or sore…

  • Christina Abdilla

    I so want to buy this when I come to London in December, but I’m worried it won’t suit my sensitive normal/combo skin… but I think I will eventually cave in as skin does have a tendency to get slightly drier in winter I guess.

    I think if you buy the glamour magazine of september, you will get a free sample of this if you buy something from the origins website. xx Agnes

  • just bought it today and using it right now πŸ™‚ loving the smell!!

  • My friend has recommend me to use this.. I heard the internet highly rated it and this is in my shopping list now. πŸ™‚
