Battle of the Hydrating Masks: Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask vs Origins Drink Up Intensive

Have you heard about the Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask yet? I swear I hear about this mask from someone, or I get asked about it, roughly once every hour.

I first reviewed Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream in 2007 (yes, 10 years ago), right when it was being released. I was blown away by this super moisturizing face cream! It was full of peptides to improve collagen production. There was also a lot of hyaluronic acid to really help plump up the outer layers of your skin while it hydrated, something that it did without feeling heavy on your skin. Since my initial review, I…
