I love to share advice and tips gleaned from my own experiences.
Clinique vs. Origins Overnight Masks
For the last two years, I've used both Origins Drink Up Intense Hydrating Overnight Mask and Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask. I've used each separately for a period of time and both do help to improve your skin.
Clinique is suitable for all skin types while Origins is only suitable for normal skin types, so these masks might not suit everybody. You apply these face masks to your skin about one to two times a week instead of your regular night cream. They are quite rich so that is why they are not used every night.
Both of these products work well for anyone experiencing dry skin, especially during the winter months. These masks help by adding moisture to your skin that dries out during the day. They are both great products to have in your bathroom cabinet especially around wintertime if you experience dry skin.
Both of these products do really deliver results and you should see a difference within 72 hours. After your first application, it might seem like nothing is happening to your skin, but the next day, your skin will feel really soft and moisturized.
Both products also differ slightly in regards to their ingredients with Origins being gluten-free, while Clinique is not.
Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask
You apply Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask to your face after you have finished your nightly skincare routine. You should use it one to two times a week if your skin is very dry. This mask is designed to help add moisture to our skin and lock it in.
In the winter if your skin is really dry, you can apply it two to three times a week. But the rest of the time only apply it to your skin one to two times a week. You massage this mask into clean dry skin and leave it to absorb into your skin.
This face mask is not a night cream, so treat it as you would a facial, something extra that you apply to give your skin a few times a week. This mask is really good for dehydrated skin and anyone who experiences flaky skin around their cheeks.
It’s designed for all skin types so most people shouldn't experience any issues while using it.
It’s available to purchase on most online beauty retailer websites and most Clinique beauty counters. You can purchase it in a 15 ml / 0.5 fl oz. tube or a 100 ml /3.4 fl oz. tube.
How to Use Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask
Once you have completed your nightly skincare routine, you can apply this to your skin. You wouldn't need to apply a night cream if you were going to apply this mask to your face. Once it is applied to your skin, it sinks in pretty quickly and it doesn’t leave any residue behind on your face.

Texture and Fragrance
This Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask comes in 100 ml / 3.4 oz. tube and it is a pale pink colour. The mask has a very faint fragrance upon opening the tube, but once it is applied to your skin, it disappears. The fragrance does not linger upon your skin after application.
- This mask was designed by Clinique for all skin types.
- The texture of this mask is quite light and it is not greasy.
- This mask doesn’t leave a residue on the skin after application.
- It is lightly fragrant but upon application, the smell disappears.
- Once applied it is absorbed quickly into the skin.
- You should see results within 24 hours and your skin should feel soft and smooth the next morning.
- It really helps to improve dry flaky skin by adding moisture to your skin.
- Even though it is designed for all skin types, there is the chance that you could breakout after using this mask.
- If you are allergic to any of the ingredients or have very sensitive skin, you could have a puffy face after application.
Origins Drink Up Intense Hydrating Overnight Mask
Origins Drink up Intense Hydrating Overnight Mask has a consistency similar to thick butter. This mask has a strong avocado fragrance that does linger on your skin for a while after application. You apply this mask one to two times a week as it is a very rich mask.
While it does contain honey and beeswax, it is considered vegetarian and gluten-free. They also claim to be free from many of those chemical ingredients that other brands include in their face creams and masks like parabens, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfates and phthalates, propylene glycol, mineral oil, DEA, petrolatum, paraffin, polyethylene beads and formaldehyde.
It's also infused with glacier water and hyaluronic acid which locks moisture into your skin. They state that this product contains omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins A, D, and E which are beneficial in helping to seal moisture onto the surface of your skin to keep it nice and soft.
It’s available to purchase on most online beauty retailer websites and Origins sell it on their website as well. You can purchase it in a 30 ml / 1fl oz. tube or a 75 ml 2.5 fl oz tube.
How to Use Origins Overnight Hydrating Mask
This mask is applied to your face after you have completed your nightly skincare routine. You massaged it into a dry clean and let it absorb into your skin. You do not use this in place of your regular night cream. This mask is applied to your face twice a week instead of your regular night cream as part of your weekly skincare routine.
Again like the Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask, this is an additional skin care product that you use sparingly during the week and you use it to help treat very dry or dehydrated skin.
If you do not want to leave this on your skin all night, you can also apply this mask to your face for 15 minutes. After the 15 minutes are up you would massage any remaining product into your skin and wipe any excess product off your face with a cotton pad. This is similar to how you use the No7 Instant Results Nourishing Hydration Mask.

Texture and Fragrance
This Origins overnight face mask comes in a 75 ml / 2.5 oz. tube and is a pale green colour. The mask has a very strong fragrance and it has a consistency that is similar to soft butter.
Once you have applied this mask to your skin, the smell does linger for a little while, but it does gradually fade away. I would apply this an hour before bedtime to assuage this issue.
- This mask is designed for normal skin types.
- This overnight mask is quite thick and creamy and it leaves your skin feeling very hydrated the next morning.
- Once you have applied this mask you should notice an improvement in your skin within days.
- It’s a good mask for anyone who has very dry or flaky skin or for anyone who uses a BHA exfoliant.
- It can be used on flights to help keep your skin hydrated.
- Since this mask is thicker than the Clinique Moisture Surge Mask, a little bit goes a long way. So you don't need to apply massive amounts onto your skin to get results.
- This mask can be used during the week as an extra step in your weekly skincare routine.
- If you don’t like strong fragrances, then this mask won’t suit you as the fragrances is quite strong upon application.
- This mask has a similar consistency to soft butter so if you don’t like thick creams or you break out when using these types of products, then this mask won’t suit you.
- If you have very sensitive skin or you are allergic to any of the ingredients listed, then your skin might have a reaction and become red and inflamed.
The price of both of these products varies because Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask comes in a 100ml /3.4 fl oz. tube and Origins Drink Up Intense Hydrating Overnight Mask comes in a 75 ml / 2.5 fl oz. But you are getting more in the Clinique tube than you are in the Origins tube.
Both Clinique and Origins have a very long list of ingredients but Origins is probably the better of the two as it has more natural ingredients.
Value for Money
In this instance, Clinique is the better value as the amount you get in their product is more compared to what you get in Origins. However, Origins and Clinique do offer this product in a trial size. The Clinique mask comes in a 15ml /0.5 fl oz tube while the Origins mask comes in a 30ml / 1 fl oz tube. Origins mask is the dearer of the two to purchase as it is larger in size.
If you are not a fan of fragrances, then again Clinique is probably a better choice for you as Origins has a mild fragrance in their mask which is a lot stronger than what you get in Clinique.
While both of these masks deliver on results, if you have issues with your skin or you are prone to issues with skincare that has fragrances, then you should pick the Clinique face mask.
The Origins face mask is great and it does work, but the texture and the fragrance might put many people off.
If you plan on trying either of these products, you should probably purchase the trial size ones first to make sure you don't have any issues.

@Sarah Anderson, yes if you get a chance do give them try. They are both really good products.
Sarah Anderson on July 21, 2020:
I never try it before, something I should try, thanks for sharing :)

@ Liza, yes Clinique have some products on the market that you never see advertised. Then you find them at beauty counters and there brilliant.
Here in winter with central heating in offices, it messes with your skin.
Liza from USA on July 06, 2020:
I have never used or tried Clinique products. Perhaps I should give it a try. Though I have moved to the US for the past five years, I am still adjusting to the weather. I used a few other products for a face mask but, it wasn't for overnight. Thanks for sharing!
Sp Greaney (author) from Ireland on July 05, 2020:
@Pamela Oglesby, thank you. They are never advertised. I purchased them after talking to the lady at the beauty counter.
Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on July 05, 2020:
I have never tried either of these products. Thank you for this very thorough information about these products.
