After hearing and reading many good things about the Skincare brand, Origins, I just had to try the brand out for myself. I picked up the Origins Superstar Minis Skincare Gift Set from my local counter, which features all the best selling products they sell. Origins describe the set as ‘Our bests crafted for your best buds’ and I must say this would make a great christmas present for friends and family!
So far and I really enjoyed using particular products from the set, as they have made my skin super smooth, blemish free and also controlled my oily/combination skin type.
The set includes:
Checks and Balances™ Frothy Face Wash, 30ml
Modern Friction™ Nature’s Gentle Dermabrasion, 15ml
Clear Improvement™ Active Charcoal Mask To Clear Pores, 15ml
GinZing™ Energy-Boosting Moisturiser, 30ml
High-Potency Night-A-Mins™ Mineral-Enriched Renewal Cream, 30ml
GinZing™ Refreshing Eye Cream To Brighten And Depuff, 15ml
Make A Difference™ Rejuvenating Hand Treatment, 15ml
Origins Recycled Tote Bag
Origins Checks And Balances Frothy Face Wash
This clever face wash balances dry and oily places on the face, without cancelling each other out. You simply squeeze a small amount into your palm, add tepid water to lather, swirl over your skin and rinse thoroughly. I have been using this in the mornings and in the evenings and I must say I have enjoyed the gorgeous spearmint scent to it, which is very refreshing.
GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturiser
Jumpstart your hydration levels with the GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser. It is light weight and oil-free, and includes legendary skin-boosters like Panax Ginseng and Coffee Bean. When you apply the moisturiser, the gorgeous scent of fresh oranges hits your nose and I find that it perks my mood up in the mornings. This moisturiser is sure to give you a healthy, radiant glow.
High Potency Night-A-Mins
I personally have not tried this night cream yet, as I have been loving the GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturiser and Checks And Balances Frothy Face Wash the most! The night cream is described to “Put dullness to rest. Wake up radiant & refreshed. Now nature’s famed night cream is newly fortified with a system of time-released resurfacers plus Vitamins C, E & H, minerals & moisture-rich replenishers. While relaxing aromas lull you to sleep, skin sloughs away dry, dead layers.”
GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream
This eye cream pairs up nicely with the GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser. This eye cream has a strong smell of orange (just like the moisturiser) and is designed to reduce the look of dark circles. It is great for all skin types and won best eye cream for COMPANY in 2013.
Make A Difference Rejuvenating Hand Treatment
Again i haven’t tried this product out yet, but from the reviews on the Origins website I will sure be soon! This hand cream will treat dry and dehydrated skin and includes Ancient Oceanic Flora to minimize the appearance of damage due to UV exposure. Origins state that it will make your skin tone, brighter, more even and leaves an elegent silky feel.
Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask
I love a good face mask that draws all impurities from the skin, and this one most definitely does! The charcoal draws out all of the dirt from your clogged pores, while White China Clay absorbs environmental pollutants. I would use this mask as a weekly treatment to pamper yourself and give your skin a deep clean. A little of this product goes a long way and the mask is perfect for mattifying the skin, especially if you have an oily/combination skin type like me.
Modern Friction Nature’s Gentle Dermabrasion
A super gentle exfoliation without any irritation. “Skin-refining Rice Starch cushioned in cream, rapidly removes sluggish cells, uneven patches and signs of skin damage and discolourations.” From using this product a couple of times, I have found my skin to be smooth and the appearance much brighter.
From the past week of using the Origins Superstar Minis Skincare Gift Set, my skin has felt throughly cleansed and i have found my make-up is lasting all day without it feeling like it is sliding off my face (especially my oily t-zone area). My favourite products have to be the GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturiser and Checks And Balances Face wash, because I feel these work so well together at balancing my skin – plus they smell divine!
I believe the Origins Superstar Minis Skincare Gift Set is perfect for someone who wants to try out the brand Origins, or is a great Christmas gift for someone who enjoys trying out various beauty products. The set allows you to have a complete skincare regime to work with and i’m sure you won’t be disappointed in the amazing products. Also the gift set comes with a recycled Origins tote bag which is handy for shopping or keeping your products all together!
