The Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask has created quite a buzz in the blogging world recently, and for total good reason too. This mask is an overnight mask, and as the name suggests, meant to be intensively moisturising. The product suggests putting on a layer of the mask and wiping off the excess, but seeing as my skin needs all the help it can get, I leave whatever the remainder is on. The consistency of the mask is pretty thick, but it smooths into the skin really well - a little goes a long way and you don't want to squeeze out too much. In the morning, my skin feels a lot more refreshed and moisturised than the previous day, and there's no residue left (which some people have seemed to find). As with all Origins products, the smell of the product is fresh and rather divine. I use this more often than the tube suggests which is twice a week. I probably use it every other night or every two nights, and that's only because my skin needs it and the results I feel the next day are just fantastic. Obviously, this is meant for drier skins as it is an intensive moisturising mask, but for oilier/combo skins, this would probably be a good treat for the skin once a week. The magic ingredient of Hyaluronic Acid is the wonder factor, as it's great to keep skin hydrated and plump, and often what plastic surgeons use in their aftercare products.
Personally, with the dry skin I have, I couldn't be without this product. At £20 for 100mls, it's great value for money and does the job it's intended for (and quite frankly, at a cheaper price than some higher end moisturisers I've tried!). Does anyone else with dry skin have any other recommendations? Operation Skin is going to be a long haul I think..
