Did you know Origins are the No.1 mask brand in the UK? Well, they are. So, it’s no surprise that they have come up with something new and innovative in the face mask game – The Maskimizer!
It is a bit of a rubbish pun-based name, but I will forgive them that for because it’s an interesting, new, product, and as a beauty writer, I love anything new. Face masks are a huge trend for this spring. Sheet masks will be everywhere.
But have you ever though about prepping your skin before applying a mask? They do it in the salon, so why don’t you at home? Now you can, easily, with this Maskimizer Skin-Optimizing Mask Primer – the first ever mask primer.
It will prep, prime and hydrate skin, leaving it more receptive to the face mask you then apply. It contains Origins’ Marine Algae Complex, which optimises skin’s condition to enhance the mask experience. Found in the coastal waters of South America, Marine Algae is legendary for its ability to retain moisture and promote healthy, supple skin.
So, you just hold the bottle 10 to 12 inches (25 to 30 cm) from your face, and spray over clean skin. Close your eyes whilst doing it, then lightly pat it in and then apply whatever mask you want- clay, gel, cream, foam or charcoal, but NOT peel-off masks.
If you’re a Plantscription by Origins fan, then here’s the perfect mask to use after your Maskimizer. The new Plantscription Powerful Lifting Overnight Mask is a gel-cream mask designed to fight gravity with a lifting complex that helps visibly lift, plump and firm facial skin.
This lovely mask also pampers and hydrates whilst helping with that sagging skin. It contains Red Microalgae and Sweet Almond Extract, along with potent Anogeissus, the Plantscription range wonder ingredient, and Commiphora for firming.
It also contains sweet almond oil, and its lovely to use. It absorbs really quickly, and when you wake your skin will look and feel hydrated, fuller and firmer. Apply it generously, in upward strokes before you go to sleep.
Origins Maskimizer Skin-Optimizing Mask Primer, £18.50, is available now at origins.co.uk and from March at Origins locations, and the Plantscription Powerful Lifting Overnight Mask, £52, is available now from origins.co.uk and Origins locations.
