I bought this mask purely due to all the hype among beauty bloggers and recommendations from employees at Mecca Maxima, and for roughly $35 for 100mls I thought it was a good deal!
At first the product seemed rather average, like a standard moisture mask so I stopped using it so frequently but after experiencing drier skin during the winter I went back to and now I can fully appreciate the brilliantness that is this product!
A little goes a long way, and it leaves your skin feeling so nourished and supple, so your make up glides on smoothly in the morning.
It does have quite a strong smell which I don't find too over powering, but that will differ due to taste.
The packaging is simple and straight forward, and is in a squeezey tube (don't know the actually term sorry) which allows application to be neat.
In summary, this a great product to use for all skin types. Very hydrating, will last a long time, and smells pleasant!
My skin was glowing just a few days after use. Smells wonderful and evened out my skintone. I don't really have dry skin either (got a free bottle, so figured I'd give it a shot) and I'm very pleased. No oily or greasy residue...highly suggest!
Good hydrating overnight mask, but it's nothing special. If you have very dry and dehydrated skin, I think it wouldn't work very well.
Big minus - it has a terribly chemical apricot smell, I can't stand it without getting headache.
This mask is my lifesaver during the cooler months. I was going to get the Clinique moisture surge overnight Mask but clinique moisturizers have broken me out frequently and it was $20 more expensive than this! I got a tube of this from the origins website with free shipping for only $20. It smells so good and it makes my face feel like butter! I get flaky dry skin on my cheeks, around the edges of my nose and my forehead in the fall and winter and within one night this got rid of it! HG winter treatment, I use it almost every night!
Nice mask. Smells LOVELY. Gives a nice hydration boost. I was afraid it would make my face a greasy mess or break me out but it doesn't. It's like a regular moisturizer, though a bit richer and creamier. My skin looks a bit smoother in the morning after using this. I still get flaky spots though. All in all a nice mask. It's a bit pricey and not a miracle worker but it does work. I also love the fact that it contains no nasties. I could repurchase this!
Currently starting on tretinoin and im a flaking mess. Then i remembered i have this in my stash and used it as a night cream (thinly). I now am able to control the issues derived from tretinoin (dry flaky sensitive skin) and can enjoy the benefits. Clear skin, here i come!
I got this sample with a purchase of Origins clay mask. I loved the clay mask, but this is for the overnite mask. I am 68 and believe me, I have tried a million different products in the last 48 years. But this one REALLY impressed me, with only 1 application! I followed directions and put it on, went to bed and wow. All those little wrinkles especially on my forehead ( or at least alot) were gone. The dry spots on my cheeks ,gone. Tried it again, same results, and I have very sensitive skin. No breakouts, or mili. I have another sample which I am going to use, and if there is no harm to my skin I'm definetly buying the full size. I also bought the Nite-a-mins moisturiser, let you know about that later.
I'm probably going to be the only person who does not like this mask. I am sure that it has worked for a lot of people, and heaps of people rave about this, but for me it just didn't work. It basically broke me out like no other. i don't usually have sensitive skin. Unfortunately it didn't work for me.
my skin is very dry, and i applied this and it felt lovely and so soothing, and then i went to bed and i woke up in the morning and my face was red and sore, and very flakey, i was so disapointed as it felt so nice when i put it on :( my skin is starting to ease up a bit and isnt so red and sore. but still very disapointed
Noooooo!!! I have dry dehydrated skin with some blackheads in my t-zone and this broke me out SO BAD!!! Everytime!! I really wish I had read the review of this on beautypedia instead of just believing in makeupalley. :-(
