Hello babes! I managed to score this Origins Super Star Mini Set at the Estee Lauder company store with an awesome discount thanks to a friend so I thought I'd review all of the products in this set!
The first one is this GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturizer which I hadn't heard much about yet, it has a very interesting scent, most of these products have a very distinct, almost herbal scent. It's a little thicker than the moisturizers I mostly use but it spreads very nicely and you don't need too much product, it's definitely very hydrating but I didn't notice much 'energy boosting'..
This next product is a Frothy Face Wash that 'Checks and Balances', it does really foam well and it makes your face feel squeaky clean without drying it out too much, you do have a little bit of a tight sensation afterwards but it doesn't actually dehydrate your skin.
This GinZing refreshing, brightening and de-puffing Eye Cream isn't something I'll use again, I have very sensitive and dry eye contours and this didn't moisturize enough for me, it even stinged a little bit because it's depuffing and refreshing.. I'm sure a lot of people with puffy eyes will enjoy this but I didn't..
This High Potency Night-A-Mins Mineral Enriched renewal Cream is a really hyped product online, I was very excited to try it and to be honest I was a little disappointed.. It didn't really moisturize very well and usually after I use a rich night cream my healing acne looks and feels a bit better, with this I thought it even looked a bit worse..
I did like this Modern Friction Nature's Gentle Dermabrasion, it's a milky face scrub with big chunks that feels great in a hot shower and it isn't too harsh!
This Make A Difference Rejuvenating Hand Treatment isn't very exciting, it's a normal hand cream and it does moisturize very well, it's not too sticky but nothing about it is very special to me..
And lastly the Clean Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to clean pores.. Now this product I definitely will never ever use again, I used this once in the evening and the next day my entire face was covered in small whiteheads, even in places I usually don't get acne at all, my acne was actually healing quite nicely until I used this.. My friend Yaiza tried it and she did like it so it's probably because I'm allergic or sensitive to one of the ingredients...
I've been looking at Origins products for years now and I never wanted to purchase anything because it was quite expensive and not for sale in any shops near me, now that I've tried a lot of their products I'm actually quite disappointed.. I wasn't impressed by most and some really let me down. I probably won't purchase anything else from Origins..
What are your experiences with this brand, do you like it?
Thanks for reading!
