I’ve always loved Origins’ skin care products, so when I found out that they had created a box containing four of their must have items, I high-tailed it to Sephora. This box includes Origins’ VitaZing SPF 15 Energy Boosting Moisturizer in sheer tint, Origins’ GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream, Origins’ Rose Clay Mask, and Origins’ High Potency Night-a-Mins Mineral Enriched Renewal Cream (that was a mouthful). Now this box offer was quite appealing to me, as I found the price to be extremely reasonable. A 1.7oz sized container of Origins’ High Potency Night-a-Mins Mineral Enriched Renewal Cream retails at about $55, where the entire box set including a 1oz sized High Potency Mineral Enriched Renewal Cream (as well as three other products) is priced at $55. So, if you’re wanting a good sized sample kit of Origins’, I highly recommend purchasing their 24 Hour Glow box set. Now let’s get into the good stuff.
Origins’ VitaZing SPF 15 Energy Boosting Moisturizer in sheer tint: So I was initially really excited about this product, as I hadn’t tried it prior to my purchase of Origins’ 24 Hour Glow Box Set. However, this ended up being my only disappointment in the set. As an individual with fair skin, I found this product’s sheer tint to be way too dark for my skin tone. This cream uses colour identification technology to adapt to each individual’s skin tone- which is a super neat concept- but unfortunately it leaves my face in an orange mess. I definitely recommend trying this moisturizer if you have a medium to dark skin tone, but not if you’re fair skinned like myself. Apart from the discolouration, I found this to be a very hydrating moisturizer that would be great to wear as a light bb cream during the day.
Origins’ GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream: This is another product that I hadn’t previously tried, so I was excited to see how it compared to my Kate Somerville Eye Cream. I wanted to use this product for a couple weeks before writing a review to ensure that I had enough time to relay reliable results. I used this product every night, as well as every couple mornings. I didn’t wear this every morning because I felt that when I wore it with makeup my under eye concealer would crease. So far, I have noticed an improvement in the diminishment of my early morning under eye circles. I also found this product to be quite hydrating, which is great with all this cold weather.
Origins’ Rose Clay Mask: I can’t say enough good things about this product. It is definitely one of my holy grail masks, and I use it quite often. I loved this product prior to my purchase of the Origins’ 24 Hour Glow Box Set, and so I was super excited to discover it was one of the four items included. This facial mask leaves my skin feeling smooth, soft, and ultra clean. I definitely notice a difference in the overall complexion of my face after use; it leaves a gorgeously hydrated glow. Highly recommend!!
Origins’ High Potency Night-a-Mins Mineral Enriched Renewal Cream: Yet another product that has been on my favourites’ list for quite some time. If you’ve read some of my other posts, you probably already know that I have extremely dry skin- especially in the winter. And so, this cream is the key element to my skin care routine. It is SO very hydrating, and it leaves my skin with a glowing complexion. It has an amazing citrus scent as well; which reminds me of Thermea Spa’s “Orange Room”. Sooo relaxing.
