Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask*. If you haven't where have you been? I've been suffering from dehydrated skin. It's easy to misread your skin, which I did. My skin type has always been Dry, sometimes depending on the time of the month it could sway between combination-dry but overall I would say its dry. However a little while ago you may remember me tweeting/ blogging about how my skin going AWOL. It must have been a mix of new products because I can't think what else. I found that my foundation was literally melting off my face, my forehead looked so shiny and greasy that by mid afternoon I found myself blotting. Sometimes I would blot twice a day which is so not like my skin. I knew something wasn't right. I can't think what has caused my problem skin, but I started using my trusted Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish which I adore and trust very much. I did notice after a week a slight improvement but then it just settled down to the same problem as before. Greasy/shiny skin, makeup melting off face. So after a little research I came to the conclusion my skin was badly dehydrated. I also think that the LE C&P was too heavy for my skin, so for the time being I've stopped using it and replaced it with something different which is another post. I then reached for Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask which has been raved about by many beauty bloggers. I went to bed and slathered this all over (except eye area) and then went to sleep.
This smells amazing, a fruity cocktail of goodness. In the morning my skin had totally drank up the yummy concoction and left me with soft smoother fresher skin. It did leave a tacky layer on my skin so I soaked two cotton pads in Bioderma and removed the tacky layer and cleansed my skin as normal.
My main problem area was my forehead where I had small blemishes under the skin looking bumpy and then shiny/greasy. I've used this a handful of times now and have noticed such a difference.
I will update my skincare routine shortly once I feel comfortable with everything. Overall I have been so impressed with the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight mask and can't recommend this enough if you suffer from dry/dehydrated skin, this is now my S.O.S face mask.
