Origins Masks - Drink Up Intensive Overnight and Mega Mushroom Skin Relief

Origin logo

Origins is a true skincare brand and not
surprisingly it was one of the pioneers that led to the inclusion of natural ingredients and essential oils to already innovative scientific formulations. 
In fact the Origins team insisted that skincare didn't need to be harsh and abrasive in order to treat skin conditions and in fact set out to prove that skin actually responds more positively when exposed to gentler, natural formulas that soothe and nurture at the same time.

It was Origins that paved the route for today's popular natural organic brands that are using the same methods today to heal skin conditions based on the same principle that Origins came up with yesterday. 

Today Origins continues to be very popular in the skincare industry, and is constantly releasing "souped up" versions of those early formulations as new technology and research becomes available. 

Naturally as a skincare connoisseur I have made it my mission to test out some of their popular picks and knowing how much I like the "supplementary" steps of my already ridiculous routine, picking out a few treatment masks seemed like the most natural choice. 
My two favorite Origins discoveries are the Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask and Dr.Weil's Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Mask. 


Origins Drink Up Intensive
Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask Description;
Skin depends on water for its youthful functioning. But all day long, skin loses vital moisture. And the busier you are, the more it loses. This intense moisture replacement mask with Avocado and Apricot Kernel Oil deeply and instantly quenches compromised moisture reserves and builds a reservoir for tomorrow. Japanese Seaweed repairs skin's barrier to prevent future dehydration and signs of premature aging.




The Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask is a potent, moisturizing treatment mask that harshness's the natural hydration powers of the creamy Avocado and the rich, nourishing Apricot Kernel Oil. Its probably the most famous of all Origins products and as such comes with a  long list of devoted fans, including almost every Beauty Blogger like me. 
The main function of the Drink Up mask is to hydrate deeply beneath the surface  and replenish your skin's natural moisture balance.
Another important attribute of the Drink Up Intensive Mask is the fact that its very comfortable to wear so leaving this on for longer periods of time is easily done and can even be described as pleasant to some extent. The mask scent is more than amazing - tropical fruity goodness that really should be bottled and sold as a fragrance. I know that I would purchase it in a heartbeat :-) 


Once I remove the mask with a warm facecloth I am greeted with soft, silky, smooth, plumped up and radiant complexion. I really couldn't be happier with this mask. 


Origins Mega Mushroom Skin-Relief Mask Description; 
This creamy treatment mask with Hypsizygus Ulmarius, Cordyceps and Reishi mushrooms along with Ginger, Holy Basil and Turmeric rushes to relief to challenged skin to help soothe signs of compromise. Chinese Black Bamboo Leaf Extract, celebrated for centuries as a symbol of eternal youth, helps quell and calms visible redness and reactivity.

The Origins Dr. Weil  Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Mask is quite different than the Drink Up version mostly because its specifically targeted towards very sensitive, reactive skin and strives to calm, soothe and boost the radiance of even the most stressed skin. My fellow Sensitive Skin Care Members will definitively reap the most benefits from this particular formulation especially since the Mega-Mushroom Mask doesn't require rinsing and can be removed with a simple tissue thereby reducing any further irritation. It promises to soothe superficial redness, calm any random blotches on the skin surface and just makes the entire complexion feel a lot more more comfortable. 
How can we really ask for more?

These two Origin's masks, along with their other products can be purchased directly from their website, our trusty Sephora or Amazon

I hope you found this helpful :-)

Have you tried any Origin's masks? Which ones are your favorites?
