Origins Company Background
The Origins Company values are one of the reasons I love to purchase products from this brand. Not only do they have some fabulous masks and other products, but how they formulate and package them is even more remarkable.
All of their products are formulated without parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, mineral oil, petrolatum, paraffin, DEA, and polyethylene beads.
They also use sustainable resources and all of their packages are made with earth-friendly materials. This company's approach is not just good for your well-being or the well-being of your skin, but also for the planet, and that's something that I can get behind.
Before we get into my review of this product, I thought it'd be best to check out the Origins website and see what it had to say about the product. The product description goes as follows:
"Put dry skin to bed with this ultra-rich, hydrating overnight mask. Avocado and Apricot Kernel Oils deeply and instantly quench compromised moisture reserves and help build a reservoir for tomorrow. While Japanese Seaweed helps repair skin's barrier to prevent future dehydration and signs of premature aging. Skin awakens comfortable, refreshed, supple."
If you look further into the ingredients, it is also made with rose water, chamomile water, and bitter orange water—which, to my knowledge, are all great for hydrating the skin and calming irritation.
I am definitely one of those people that like to know what is in my skincare products. Your diet does not only consist of what you eat, but also what you put on your body, what you listen to, and watch.
Plus. you should know if you pay attention to the skincare community online, it is not unusual for skin and hair care companies to put just enough of an ingredient to market it while mostly loading it with harsh chemicals that are generally damaging.
So let's take a look at the first six ingredients in this overnight mask to keep it short, shall we?
- Rose Water
- Myrtle Water
- Bitter Orange Water
- Chamomile Flower Extract
Helps keeps skin moisturized and delivers proper nutrients.
Rose Flower Water

Bitter Orange Flower Water

Chamomile Flower Extract

My Review of the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask
After using this mask for almost a year now, I can confidently say that it is by far one of the best overnight masks I have ever used. I genuinely do not see myself ever trying or purchasing another overnight mask as long as this one is in stores. It didn't feel super heavy on my skin like some of the other overnight masks I have tried in the past, and it absorbs pretty quickly into the skin. So you don't have to worry about leaving stains on your pillowcases!
My Skin History and How I Use the Mask
I have very sensitive skin and it gets especially dry in the wintertime. I love using this mask once or twice a week after doing another mask (usually a clay or mud mask). The extra moisture helps to keep my skin from aborning so much acne-causing bacteria that leads to breakouts.
How the Mask Helps Me
Like I said before, the winter months wreak havoc on my face, but luckily this mask saves me. Once or twice a week after washing my face or doing some other kind of mask (mud or clay usually), I will spritz on one of my favorite tones or infused water (rose and cucumber are my go-to's) and dab a little bit of this on. Not only does it help with the brutal weather change effects on my skin, but the extra moisture also helps to keep my skin from soaking up too much acne-causing bacteria as well! It's a win-win!
