This year is far too exciting as far as Origins launches are concerned.
Not only did we start out this year with a handful of gorgeous additions to the Original Skin range the other month (you can check out my thoughts on those in this post HERE if you like), but in the last few weeks we all said hi to a special new product to enjoy brought to us from the mind of the original Glow Goddess, Madeleine Shaw!
Madeleine has worked long and hard with Origins over the last year to bring us a brand new face mask to the Origins family. Why a face mask? I mean, why not?! After all, Origins are the UK's #1 face mask brand, and you just know it's going to be perfect when the meeting of such minds unite, right?
WHAT IS IT?
Glow-Co-Nuts™ Hydrating Coconut Moisture Mask is a fluffy whipped mask with Coconut, Apricot, Lemon, Orange and Lime oils inspired by nutritionist Madeleine Shaw and her love of coconuts and natural ingredients. It’s a UK Exclusive, available for a limited time only.
WHAT IT IS FORMULATED TO DO?
Instantly hydrate & boost glow. Skin feels plumped & healthier-looking.
WHAT IS IT FORMULATED WITHOUT?
Parabens, Phthalates, Propylene Glycol, Mineral Oil, PABA, Petrolatum, Paraffin, DEA. In addition, the formulation is 100% Vegan and the packaging is 100% recyclable, further reflecting Madeleine’s beliefs in clean beauty.
HOW DO I USE IT?
Apply morning or night after cleansing for 10 minutes, two three times a week for an instant rush of moisturisation to soften and smooth.
Apply overnight to restore moisture lost while you sleep – apply a generous layer to your skin after cleansing, tissue off excess and leave on while you sleep. Skin awakens plumped, refreshed and supple.
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW?
Coconut Oil is a an excellent moisturiser and is known to have powerful antioxidant properties. Apricot Kernel Oil is rich in essential fatty acids like Oleic and Linoleic plus Vitamins A and E. So it’s super protective, nourishing and soothing.
Typically, let's not beat around the bush here, this mask is gorgeous. I won't hide it, I won't hold back, it's gorgeous.
I, like many, appreciate the quality of Origins face masks as any true fan of the formulas go and this is above and beyond expectations of fabulous-ness.
If you're a fan of coconuts, then you have to already understand before trying this mask out that the smell and feel is going to be dreamy. There's no "faux-co-nut" scent here, just a natural and cooling wash of moisturising loveliness to relax and quench your wonderful face with. It genuinely smells like fresh coconut milk. The real stuff!
That's one huge thing I love about Origins face masks actually, the richness of the formula which brings a cooling and calming sign on application. Now with the focus being on coconuts, I'm feeling those vibes but on an imaginary beach somewhere.
True to it's ambitions, the Glow-Co-Nuts mask truly does leave my skin feeling infused with hydration, which I can especially notice most in my cheeks on product removal.
Speaking of when it comes to taking the mask off, I find that it doubles as a gorgeous bonus cleanse! On washing your face with warm water over the mask, it begins to melt and form almost a cream cleanser, which I personally enjoyed massaging in for a while before finishing with a rinse. Beautiful!
I like to pop this on now before bed and finalising my night time skincare routine with my favourite night cream and serum three times a week, making sure one of those days is a Sunday when I can leave it on just a little bit longer during those early pyjama evenings.
