I’ve read and heard quite a bit about Origins products. Two of the most talked about items (and also two that I’ve had my eye on for a while) would have to be their Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask and Ginzing Refreshing Eye Cream. And in a nutshell, I absolutely L.O.V.E them.
Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask
What Is It? Origin’s Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask is an intense moisture mask that quenches your skin, prevents dehydration and reduces signs of premature aging.
What’s In It? This mask’s key ingredients for it’s amazing hydration power is Avocado and Apricot Kernel Oil. The Japanese Seaweed in it helps contain the moisture in the skin. It has a beautiful and delightful fruity slightly floral scent because it also contains mango butters, and some rose/flower water and extract. One more thing: it also has Hyaluronic Acid which is meant to be lovely to your skin as it’s a natural acid (we have it in our bodies) and it helps lubricate the skin’s connective tissue.
How To Use It? After a cleansed face at night, put this baby on. If you put serums or what not on as well, do that first. This mask goes on last. More is less with this product (I always tend to squeeze too much out). Let it sink in before going to sleep. You’re face will feel amazing in the morning. I use it twice a week, sometimes more.
How Much Is It? Oh Boy. $34 in Australia (you can get them at Mecca Cosmetica or try Amazon if you’re outside Oz).
Why I Love It? Having dry sensitive skin, this is just the absolute best for my skin. The scent is divine, I haven’t ever smelled it before! And since it’s going on overnight, you’d want something with a nice smell on your face. The scent doesn’t linger though so don’t worry if you have sensitive noses. And it’s not a ‘headachey’ sort of scent either, it’s sort of relaxing (perfect for bedtime!). The cream is thick-ish, and although contains oils, it does not make me breakout. In fact, in the morning my skin just feels clearer, hydrated, smooth, balanced, and glow-y. Seriously guys, this is probably my favourite skincare product right now, I can’t say anything bad about it. You need this. Consider this giving you your official permission to GO BUY IT NOW!
Ginzing Refreshing Eye Cream
What Is It? An eye cream which reduces puffiness, dark circles and bags under the eye area. It improves signs of fatigue by improving microcirculation, and providing anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant benefits so the balance to the skin is restored.
What’s In It? The reason why this product brightens and depuffs so well is because it actually contains Caffeine from Coffee Bean. It also has Panax Ginseng and Magnolia Extract which refreshes and puts a little radiance to tired eyes.
How To Use It? Dab a little bit with your fingertip onto the under eye area, and keep dabbing until the product has fully sunk in.
How Much Is It? $45 at Mecca Cosmetica (Australia) or about $39 at Amazon or $30 in Sephora (US).
Why I Love It? I’ve used a few eye cream products in the past- Sukin, Clinique, Bobbi Brown, just to name a few and the Bobbi Brown eye cream was my fave out of the bunch and what I used before discovering this Origins one. Within a week of using Origins Ginzing Eye Cream I could already tell a difference. I think it may be because the product itself has little bits of shimmer iridescence to it. So it really does instantly brighten the eye area and makes it more radiant. My dark under eye circles have gone down too and overall just looks more illuminated and hydrated, and less fatigued. This is an amazing product, so if you are looking out for an eye cream – give this one a go!
