Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask...

Friday, 20 July 2012

Since blogging I have been on the hunt to sort out my skincare, from the very basic facewipe and cream that I used to use, to now included cleanser, toner, moituriser, exfoliator and a clarasonic!
One of the key steps that was missing was a real intensive facemask. I have a fair few from Montange Jeunesse and I use these all the time but I wanted one to keep to use regularly so my skin could get used to it.
After seeing this crop up on so many blogs I knew I had to true it. I used to use origins all the time a while ago (before I got lazy) because I had a reaction to clinique and to be fair the range really sorted my skin out, I think finances and laziness kicked in and the range got fazed out of my bathroom cabinet. 
I have been using the mask for about a month now and I will be keeping this in my routine for a long long time. This is the first time I have used an overnight mask and to be honest I was a little bit worried that it would end up all over my hair and pillows. Its a cream coloured cream (haha) which feels like a gel, you apply a thick layer all over your face as the last step in your skincare routine, before bed and in the morning you wake up with a lovely soft plumped out face. Your skin literally drinks up the mask.
The mask is designed for dehydrated and dry skin which is kinda obvious hence the name. I would say my skin is a bit of both of these and this mask has come in really handy for treating these problems. Especially where I have rough dry skin down my jaw line. 
I use this fruity scented mask once a week on a Sunday night so I wake up with nice and hydrated skin for the week. I apply it a couple of hours before going to bed so there has been a reasonable time to allow the mask to sink in before I put my head to my pillow, stopping any going in my hair etc.

Have you used this before?
What is your favourite way to hydrate your skin?
