The brand is paraben free and also animal ingredient free minus the use of cruelty free honey & bees wax. The honesty of the brand is as refreshing as their products. On that note, here we go…

What it actually does

Firstly, this smells utterly amazing! The punchy orange scent is so fresh and delicious without being over powering. The texture is what is to be expected from a gel formula, water like with a soothing sense of hydration. On application, it becomes apparent from the get go that a little goes a very long way! As soon as this hits the skin, the product begins to sooth and recharge.

If your skin is in serious need of hyper hydration then no however if you suffer with combination skin then yes. Even oily skin would benefit from this super charged energy drink for the skin because of its feather like weight.  Primers or foundations sit wonderfully on top if the Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer. I have not noticed foundation breaking down quicker than usual. After makeup has been removed the face still feels hydrated which is awesome!

What it actually does

On application, the under eyes feel instantly soothed and the delicate skin begins to de-puff quickly. The peachy colour combats dark circle but do not expect them to disappear fully without concealing the area. Think of it as a brightening colour corrector, then you will be onto a winner. Makeup lovers do not fear, liquid and cream products sit beautifully over top. The high amount of moisture given by the Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream creates a great based for a flawless concealer application.  Eyes do appear brighter and more awake and over the course of  2 week bags are dramatically different

If late nights are your thing then I HIGHLY recommend.

What it actually does

A little goes a long way, one pump covers the whole face. The serum is on the thicker side so it will not run off your hand instantly. The consistency is hard to explain, it is reminiscent of a thick gel but the slip of a serum. Soaks into the skin instantly and leaves no tacky residue. It smells lovely and spa like. The face feels instantly smoother, pores seem to be less visible and I have to agree, skin looks brighter. Blemishes appear as they did before application but makeup does not slide around the face after application so the Original Skin Renewal Serum plays well with friends.

 

 

Are they really worth it?

I am finding myself reaching for these products each morning so I would have to say yes. In the evening I stick to my usual acne fighting regime and other holy grails   I have been putting them to the test for around a month and they look un-touched so well worth the money in my opinion. My face feels utterly pampered so I say a big fat win!
