Checks and Balance Frothy Face Wash

This gentle frothy face wash leaves skin squeaky clean and oil free without drying out the skin.  Broad Leaf Kelp Extract discourages excess oil production whilst Wheat Protein balances and protects dry prone zones.  The product has a relaxing scent with hints of Bergamot, Spearmint and Lavender.  Skin feels refreshed and fully cleansed.  It’s suitable for all skin types. I used this with my Clarisonic for an extra cleansing boost and I’m not kidding when I say my skin was squeaky clean!


Modern Friction Nature’s Gentle Dermabrasion

Sand-blasting skin with coarse, chemical crystals? How painfully passé. Here’s age-smoothing exfoliation without irritation. Skin-refining rice starch, cushioned in cream, rapidly removes sluggish cells, uneven patches and signs of skin damage and discolourations. Lemon oil, which smells amazing and fresh, kick starts the process of illumination. Vitamin C mops up skin-menacing free radicals. All while Aloe keeps skin calm and comfy. There’s no ouch, extra steps or other complications. No redness or flaking follows. The before-and-afters are amazing. Signs of lines and size of pores appear to shrink. Skin looks perfectly polished, smooth and luminous. And the perk-me-up aromas of bergamot and peppermint help you look on the bright side.


Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Face Mask

When environment toxins, dirt and debris get under your skin, its waste filtering system gets jammed, pores get clogged, skin looks cloudy grey.  Activated charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore cloggers, White China Clay absorbs environmental toxins and Lecithin dissolves impurities.  After the first use, your skin will be thankful for the deep clean.  I swear by this product and have been using it for a number of years.  Having a little mini is perfect to enable me to keep up my skin care routine whilst I’m on my travels.


GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturizer

This moisturiser smells delicious! It smells like satsumas and immediately gives you a morning pick-me up.  It is a lightweight, oil free skin energy drink which is fortified with skin boosters such as Panax Ginseng and Coffee Bean extract.  It effectively hydrates thirsty skin and leaves lacklustre skin looking rapidly refreshed and revitalised creating a healthy, vibrant glow.


High-Potency Night-A-Mini Mineral-Enriched Renewal Cream

This night cream is fortified with vitamins C, E and H, minerals and moisture-rich replenishers.  It has a relaxing aroma with hints of lavender which will enable a good nights sleep whilst banishing dullness and dry skin.  You will wake up feeling radiant and rejuvenated.


GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream

Nature’s clinically-proven morning-after GinZing eye cream helps to reduce the look of dark circles. Unsightly bags and puffiness seem less visible. And Origins proprietary complex of Caffeine from Coffee bean, Panax Ginseng, Magnolia Extract and natural optic brighteners rapidly wakes up, refreshes and restores radiance to tired eyes.  This is perfect if you are travelling on a long haul flight or after a night out. Trust me!  Tried and tested on both (:


Make A Difference Rejuvenating Hand Treatment

The resurrection plant Rose of Jericho, plus skin-reviving Trehalose and Sea Harictos work hand-in-hand to help hardworking skin rebound and recover from dramatic dehydration.  Ancient Oceanic Flora helps minimize the appearance of damage due to UV exposure, daily use and constant abuse. Meadowfoam Seed Oil lavishes hands that have it rough with smoothness that’s never greasy. Dry skin resumes a softer, brighter, more evenly toned, more youthfully textured look and feel. Leaves an elegant, silky feel on skin.


100% Recycled Tote

A perfectly sized tote for storing beauty products, carrying shopping with or your daily essentials.


I think that this is a great gift as it gives you the chance to sample Origins products which all work alongside each other, without having to pay the price for full sized items.  There’s nothing worse that saving up for something and then you are either allergic to it or you simply don’t like it.  I absolutely adore every product within the box and using them together within a skin care routine, you will start to see the benefits from continued use.

The box is on sale currently for £35 from most department stores here in the UK and within the larger Boots stores.

Let me know your thoughts on Origins and what you’re favourite products are.  If you have never tried the brand before, I hope this review helped.

Much Love
