So many bloggers rave about Origins products.
For me two in particular have always stood out every time I would walk through my local Boots (Drink Me Up Face Mask & GinZig Eye Cream) & every time I would look & try them out but would not purchase. However during a little late night trip after work a month ago, I was drawn into buying one of their Christmas Gift Sets. The reason why I brought the gift set & not the two products I had been eyeing up, was because it was much more cheaper for me to buy the set then the two products alone especially when nearly all of them are full sized & because I am a products junkie, gave me an excuse to test out a couple more products I would not have brought otherwise!
Here is what I thought about each product available in this set.
GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream:
If you read my Sunday Catch-Up post, then you would know that I had a really bad week in the old sleep department last week & because my under eye circles were out of control I really needed to use a good eye cream. Now one of the reasons why I picked up this gift set was because I wanted to try out this eye cream & the face mask below & I'm so glad because this eye cream is holy grail material! I swear my under eye circles looked a lot better after application & on one of the days when my eyes were looking particularly puffy, after applying this they looked & felt a lot better.
Drink-Up Intensive Overnight Face Mask:
When it comes to autumn a good face mask is essential, especially to lock in all of the moisture & aid cell repair over night. Again I was really intrigued to use a mask that was designed for use over night, as well as seeing whether my skin looked & felt different afterwards. Like the eye cream, I really feel like this is such a great product, especially for autumn because my skin looks & feels so much more softer & healthier after use. The smell is really really amazing- a cross between peaches & mango which is a big plus for me because anything that smells that good draws me into using it again! I use it once a week to give my skin a little treat after a long week braving all the elements & I really think that this mask is worth the hype. Thank you for making my skin look & feel better!
High Potency Night-A-Mins Overnight Face Cream:
I cannot believe how much I love this facial cream- smelling like a Terry's Chocolate Orange with a little more herbiness to it, the scent makes me feel very calm & refreshed. It feels dreamy when applying it to the skin & a little goes a long way, because as it is very thick in texture it just glides onto the skin & makes my skin feel really soft & moisturised. Since using this for the last month, it is safe to stay that I have definitely noticed a change in the way my skin looks- a lot more fresher & healthier, as well as the acne scarring on my face looking a little more faded then before.
GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturizer:
Out of all of the products, this is the only one that I have yet to try! The only little bit of info I can give you all is that again it smells like a Terry's Chocolate Orange, but the texture is a lot thinner then the Overnight Cream meaning that it wouldn't be so heavy as a daily moisturiser.
If you are looking for a good present for Christmas for your mum/sister/aunt/friend, or even for yourself, give this gift set ago because on value for money alone this is a ridiculous good deal!
