2015 was truly the year of skin care for me, although I have been a skin care addict for over five years at this point I finally feel as if my skin care routine is down to a fine art and a lot of the results I am seeing is due to this incredible product.
The Origins ‘Drink Up-Intense, overnight mask’ is really just an incredibly rich, Hyaluronic Acid based moisturiser that is great for all skin types as it treats both surface dryness and deep down dehydration. My skin is oily but due to the products I use to treat Cystic Acne I do get a small amount of dehydration under the skin and this is almost completely cleared up because of this product.
The ingredients list is everything dry skin dreams are made of, with Apricot Kernel Oil (full of fatty acids for plumping and hydrating), Mango and Avocado which both give the skin the ability to hold in hydration and produce new skin cells and Plant Glycerin which absorbs moisture from the environment and traps everything in place.
The texture is a medium density cream which has a slightly heavy feel, so I would not advise it be used during the day as almost anyone will show a little shine. Once on the skin it doesn’t feel like you are wearing a mask, just like the skin is having a drink. The scent is something superficial but oh so delightful with a rich tropical fruit scent that will brighten up any day.
I use this product almost every night as the last addition to my skin care routine. The results I have seen are amazing, my skin is smooth, bright, plump and incredibly hydrated, as soon as my skin starts to feel a little dry I lather myself in this and everything is back to normal.
