Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask Review!

Hey Beauts,

I know that I am so late on this bandwagon, but a mask for dry skin coming in at £23 for 100ml, I really couldn't justify the price, especially whilst being a poor University student struggling along in life to make ends meet. But just before Christmas Boots had an amazing deal on Origins masks which meant that I managed to pick up this and two other Origins mask (all 75ml) for £23. Bargain!

There is a lot that I wasn't expecting with the product. As soon as you start applying this to your face, the aroma will fill your nose with a lovely fruity, almost tropical scent. I can't quite put my finger on the scent exactly, almost peachy, apricot, mango or pineapple scented. Whatever it is, it really does smell mouth-wateringly good. Then when you apply it to your skin, it is super soft and feels really smooth to apply. It glides on really easy, and applies clear despite coming out of the tube a milky white shade. I usually apply a little more than moisturiser and then tie my hair back to stop the strays sticking to my face. After the majority has soaked in, I will climb into bed, read a good book and fall asleep. The next morning everything will have soaked in and my skin will feel so soft and super-hydrated.

I don't exactly have dry skin, but I imagine this would be the perfect pick me up for those driest of dry skin days. Over the Winter months, this has been the perfect pick me up for little dry spots around my nose and between my eyebrows. However, even when I have oily skin days, this doesn't leave my skin oily. It almost balances out my skin which I really love. I would love to try this product out on a long haul flight as I think it would be perfect do combat the drying effects of a planes air con, but haven't yet had the opportunity to try this out. I can guarantee this mask will be coming with me on the way to Florida this September and I am sure I will report back to you late September.

I really have been enjoying this mask and I strongly suggest you bite the bullet and purchase it if you haven't yet but have been wanting too. It really is lovely and your skin will love you for it. However if you have tried this before, what were your thoughts? Did you get on with it? Did you enjoy the scent? Are there any other masks like this that you enjoy that I should try? Leave a comment down below and let me know, I'd love to hear your opinions. If you haven't already and would like to, you can follow on GFC and BlogLovin' so you don't miss out on any future posts.

  2. What an amazing deal! I love this mask but I'm dreading having to repurchase when mine runs out as it's so expensive, though it does last forever to be fair! xx
