I’m really getting into face masks these days, from the traditional 10-minutes masks to overnight ones to my new love, sheet masks. So, when I saw a tweet from Mikhila about a new Origins face mask beauty box, I ordered it straight away.
I have heard of the beauty boxes put together by Jane from BritishBeautyBlogger but they always sell out so quickly, I’ve never managed to get my hands on one. I love Origins and I had been eyeing up some of the products included in the box. Also, this was amazing value for money with the contents totalling £84 but costing just £20!
Firstly, the packaging is really beautiful and would make a handy storage box once the products have been used up.
Here was my first look inside…
The product I was planning on buying myself was the Maskimizer Skin Optimizing Mask Primer and a full-sized bottle was included in the box worth £18.50. This is a pre-mask spritz to hydrate and soften the skin before applying a face mask. Slightly gimmicky yes but I am excited to try it out!
Next, a type of face mask I have not tried yet – a foaming one. I got a bottle of By All Greens Foaming Deep Cleansing Mask. I usually stay away from foaming face products but this sounds intriguing.
An overnight mask now. I received Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask which I have tried before and really liked. I got a little bit sunburnt over my birthday weekend so I think my skin would thank me for this!
I was really excited to try this new mask as I have seen it on several blogs and it is metallic! The GinZing Peel-Off Mask, as the name would suggest, is a peel-off mask to freshen up dull skin.
Another full-sized product (worth £29!) is the VitaZing SPF15 Energy-Boosting Moisturiser. I love that this contains some SPF and it has a ‘sheer tint release’ which left my skin with a lovely dewiness when I tried it.
I think this next one was a bonus product as it was listed as being a mask pod not this size. The Original Skin Retexturizing Mask contains rose clay which should give a deep cleanse.
Finally, I received three mask pods: Clear Improvement (a charcoal mask), Out of Trouble (a 10-minute rescue mask) and Drink Up (a 10-minute hydration mask). There is actually a decent amount of product in each of these and I think I will have a go at the current trend of multi-masking where you apply different masks to different areas of the face.
As you can probably tell, I am so pleased I managed to get one of these boxes. Not only was it excellent value for money but I think it has a great variety of products to try out.
