A Primer for Your Mask?! Origins Maskimizer & By All Greens

Face masks are one of my favourite products. Good ones at least. There's nothing better than seeing instant results from a product, and it's for the reason I'm a total mask addict. When Origins asked me to try out their new (and first, ever) 'Maskimizer' mask primer and brand new 'By All Greens' face mask, my ears naturally pricked up... A primer for your face mask?! Yes, it's a thing. I've been road testing it for the past few weeks to see if it actually makes a difference, and I'm happy to report that I love it!
So, firstly for the primer... similar to facial sprays and lipstick primers, Maskimizer is a mask primer that noticeably gives the efficacy of your mask a little boost. It comes in the form of a clear liquid in a spray bottle, you spray it over your clean face and gently pat it into your skin before applying your mask over the top.

It contains a marine algae complex to plump, soften and hydrate your skin before applying your mask, but it also helps the mask to apply more evenly. It feels really cool and refreshing on the skin and I think this would be a great addition for those of you who have sensitive skin as it feels really calming. It works well with all of the masks I've tried it with (although it does say no to use it under peel-off masks) however Origins recommends it to be used with their new 'By All Greens' mask.
This mask is another product unlike any I've ever tried before. It's a deep cleansing mask that works as a 2-in-1 mask and cleanser. It's a really unusual, creamy gel texture that is dispensed from an aerosol-like bottle (which actually uses eco-friendly pump technology!). Once in contact with the skin it foams up, after which you wash it off to reveal a clearer, glowing complexion. My favourite thing about this mask is that it leaves your skin feeling lovely and hydrated at the same time as looking and feeling super-clean. I find a lot of deep cleansing masks that contain clay can be stripping and leave your skin feeling a bit tight, dry or irritated afterwards but this one is much more gentle, yet still effective. It contains green tea, spirulina and spinach, so your skin is also getting an added boost of antioxidants and the kaolin clay helps to draw out any impurities from your skin without drying it out. It's a really unusual texture, but I'm totally hooked on the results. These two have firmly secured a place in my regular pamper line up, I'm so glad Origins asked me to review them as they are a great little skincare discovery.
Both Maskimizer and By All Greens are out now, available online here or at Origins counters, priced at £18.50 and £32 respectively. What do you think guys? Are you into the idea of a primer for your mask?!

  13. I have never heard of face mask primer. But why not? I love trying new skin care products, and this one sounds really cool.

  14. Sistema Libertad Para La Disfunción Eréctil

    All over the world and in a range of populations, clinical trials are seen as essential in the understanding and treatment of diseases varying from cancer and heart disease to infectious, transmitted illnesses. Although it is simple to state that this kind of research is essential, taking an in-depth look at why it is so can encourage more people to participate.


  15. Push Money App Review

    A simple example of options trading shows how easy it is to trade with binary options. Let's say that you consider that the gold price will raise by the end of the day. You will buy a Call option on Gold with a reward of 75% and a refund of 10% from your broker with the deadline at the end of the day. If the closing price of Gold is higher than the price when you purchased the option you will have 75% profit in less than a day.


  16. Fascinating! What a cool concept.

  17. Love the idea of this, Origins masks are some of my favourites but espically the Clear Improvements so would love to see how it works with that!

  38. My husband and I have been married for almost 10 years now, we have two children. About seven years ago we moved to Kuwait from the States, for a job offer he got. Now we live in Qatar because he got transferred. Since we have moved out to the gulf he complains that I don’t care about him or love him like I used to. Many things have changed since we have moved away from the states like I work full time and am completing a degree online. I was eighteen when we got married he was my first love and I was head over heels about him, as a person I have changed a lot it’s not that I don’t love him I just don’t have the same fire burning inside of me. All I ask of him is that he supports my return to school and that’s something he refuses to do. He almost always has nothing nice or positive to say about me. For me my marriage isn’t about sex I want to feel appreciated and want to have his support. Because he doesn’t give me those things I find myself pushing him away! Something that really gets to me is the fact that when I ask him about something he always tells me it’s not your business. I am his wife his life is my business. As of now he has moved his things out of our bedroom and we have not spoken to each other in about a week now. One day i was online for tutor, as i was browsing i saw a review about a spell caster who could solve my problem, i have heard about spell casting, and magic, i said i should give it a try i contacted the spell caster his name is Dr Ewan of {covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com}, i contacted him and he told me not to worry that all he had to do for me is a love spell, he did it and told me that i should give my husband 48 hours and that he would realize him self, i waited anxiously and one the second day of casting the spell, he came to me and told me he was sorry for the wrong he did to me, he has agreed to send me to school and we are happy. Thank you Dr Ewan you are the best. If you have any marital problem, winning of lottery and many other problems you can contact him on his email, {COVENANTSOLUTIONTEMPLE@GMAIL.COM} Or call +2347052958531and also check out his website https://covenantsolutiontemple.wordpress.com/, he is a good and kind man. Thanks

  39. I am really interested in the mask primer spray, but I have only managed to read sponsored reviews so far which makes it a little harder to judge. Sorry if this comment has come up four times it kept not sending.

  40. Sounds a bit like the Korean essence concept. I have to say I'm not totally sold on the concept of a mask primer, but I'll keep my mind open!

  41. Hi, my girlfriend of a year had a bit broke up with me and went back to her EX-boyfriend. She said our relationship lacked the conversation piece because am a very quiet person and she don't feel loved by me. I felt heart broken and it affected me that i couldn't concentrate properly at my place of work for i very much loved her and need to get her back and my last chance was getting a love spell. I entered on the website http://doctorokpamenpowerfulspelltemple.webs.com and made contact with the Doctor for i read that he has a lot of positive feedback with his spells. I’m not disappointed because my lover came back to me within 24 hours after getting a love spell from the Doctor called Osemu Okpamen. We are happy couples now and if you need any kind of help, Email him on ( doctorokpamenspelltemple@hotmail.com or whats-app +2348135254384 ). Michael Snapp, +1 (305) 647-6660 USA.

  42. Also though not all individuals will leave an assessment after downloading your application, it is necessary to subtly as well as pleasantly remind them to rate. buy google play store reviews

  43. Looks nice..
