Yesterday, Origins hosted an event at Barry’s Bootcamp to showcase some of their best-selling products and ofc SOOTHE was there to report. As longtime enthusiast of Origins we even included their 'Mega Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Face Mask' in our own exclusive goodie box during our autumn launch event.
Post an invigorating full-body workout in the Red Room (always makes me think of The Shining, haha!), we were treated to breakfast, protein shakes, and the chance to experience some of Origin’s best-sellers. All in all, the event was a super fun! Now, let's delve into the brand story and its remarkable products and take a peek inside the goodie bag.
For three decades, Origins has perfected the art of vegetarian skincare, formulating products with potent plant and earth-based ingredients combined with beneficial synthetics. The result is a range of clean skincare products that are not only good for you but also for the planet and animals. This makes me happy-clappy!
// GinZeng Energizing Gel Cream - HERE (click!) //
A favorite from the GinZing Line is the newly reformulated ’Energizing Gel Cream’. Having loved it for years, I was thrilled to try the updated version. The ingredient list screams "glow in a tub," with Vitamin C for boosting radiance, Niacinamide for evening skin tone, Caffeine for revitalization, and Triple Panax Ginseng for improving skin tone and texture. I used it this morning, and let me tell you – I fell in LOVE with this cream all over again!
// GinZing Refreshing Scrub Cleanser - HERE (click!) //
The GinZing ’Refreshing Scrub Cleanser’, blending Caffeine for revitalization and Jojoba Oil for moisture, creates a refreshing and nourishing facial scrub. Ideal for dull skin needing an extra glow or those looking to eliminate impurities. I’m yet to try this one but looking at the ingredients I can already tell that I will love it!
// Mega Mushroom Relief & Resilience Gel For Eye - HERE (click!) //
From the beloved Mega Mushroom series, we received the 'Relief & Resilience Gel For Eye.' Crafted with Reishi Mushroom and Lady’s Thistle, the formula hydrates instantly, soothes visible redness, and brightens dark circles. The cooling massage applicator stimulates microcirculation to reduce puffiness. I often keep my eye creams and patches in the fridge for an extra cooling effect, and this one did wonders in reducing puffiness around my eyes.
// Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask - HERE (click!) //
Last but certainly not least, I was beyond happy to find one of my all-time faves – the 'Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask' – in the goodie bag. Having used this mask since 2019, when recommended by Matilda Djerf on her podcast. I always keep at least two tubes at home because I cant bear the thought of running out of it, haha! With ingredients like avocado and glacial water for deep moisture, its silky smooth and rich consistency feels lightweight on the skin and doesn't clog pores. The scent as well as the moisturizing properties are out of this world! Whether used in nighttime skincare or as a base under makeup, this mask always leaves me with a radiant glow.
So those are a few of my faves from Origins, try them and thank me later! Also, a big thank you to Spalt PR for inviting us! Over n' out, peeps!
