My Thoughts: Origins Day to Night Gift Set

For Christmas, I was very lucky (& very happy) to be gifted with the Origins Day to Night gift set.

The only Origins product that I have in my collection is the GinZing eye cream (which is a firm favourite) so I was very happy to receive this gift set to give some more products a chance. 

The gift set consisted of 4 products including the Vitazing moisturiser 30ml, Ginzing eye-cream 15ml (full sized), Drink-up Intensive overnight mask 50ml & High Potency Night-a-mins cream 50ml (full sized).


I realise that the gift-set will no longer be available, but all the products are individually so I thought I'd share my thoughts on each and how they've very quickly become firm favourites of mine. 

Vitazing Moisturiser - this was one product I really wanted to try after hearing so much from it. If I'm honest, I don't really notice much colour from it when I apply, but it's a lovely moisturiser to apply before I pop on my make-up for the day. I think it will be lovely in the warmer months. 

Ginzing eye-cream - as I said, I already have this in my collection, but I am very much a fan of the tube it comes in (I detest pots that I have to get my fingers in to - why do they do this with products???). I don't think this products gets rid of my dark circles, but it definitely helps to conceal them with the salmony pink tone of the product. 

Drink-up Intensive Overnight Mask - this was another product that I really wanted to try and I loved it! I popped it on just before bed and off to the land of nod I went and woke up with my skin feeling very soft and plump. I've only used it twice since getting it (I'm scared of using it all up) but I think I'll start using it twice a week whilst the weather is still a bit colder.

High Potency Night-a-mins - I hadn't really heard much about this product but it just so happened to be in the set but I am really liking it. It has a thick creamy consistency and feels very luxurious on the skin but sinks in really well to the skin. My only complaint about this product is the smell - it has an orangey/zesty scent which I'm not the biggest fan of, but I can live with it! 

What are your favourite Origins products? I think I need some more in my collection!

    1. If your skin has been really dry, then I definietly think you need to get the drink up mask-it's worked wonders on my skin! I use it about 1 to 2 times a week, depending on how my skin is behaving! A little goes a long way so definitely worth the money :) XX
