I’m a dry-skinned gal and, lately, a dehydrated skin gal too, so I was super excited to find myself opening a tube of this lovely stuff on the morning of my birthday. I’m a big fan of face masks but I find a lot of them dry my skin out further, so I’d had my eye on this one for a long time.
I always find the Christmas period quite disruptive to my skincare routine. Eating rubbish food, staying up later than usual, forgetting to drink enough water and bombarding my face with tonnes of new beauty products meant it was really in need of a little pick me up. Enter, the Origins Drink Up 10 Minute Mask – the perfect thing to rehydrate your sad, winter skin.
This applies like a pretty standard face mask, it’s white with a lotion-like consistency and smells absolutely gorgeous, just like apricots. I left this on for a little over the suggested ten minutes and then rinsed my face as usual. I noticed straight away that my skin felt suppler and much more hydrated – usually after a face mask I have to moisturise quickly to stop my skin drying out but my skin already felt lovely and plumped up after using this. Fast forward a few days and I still noticed the effects – even my pesky dry as the desert forehead is in tact!
I’ve read a few times that just wiping off the excess and leaving this on overnight is a great intensive treatment (although you could always buy the overnight version if you so wished!), so I’m planning on trying that out soon. I’ve used this three times so far and each time I’ve loved the way my skin feels afterwards – I haven’t had any breakouts at all and this definitely has a place at the top of my face mask basket.
If you like the look of this one you can purchase it from Boots stores or online for £23.
