Review - Origins - Day to Night Gift Set


About a month ago I was browsing the Origins stand, as I heard a rumor they were doing miniature size products, which I think is a great way to try new products, without forking out the major money. However they didn't have any where I was looking, and I got talking to the sales woman, and felt like I had to get something, enter this. When paying for it I had to stop myself gasping at the £39 price tag, and was left with a big guilty cloud over my head, but since using the product, I have no regrets at all.


VitaZing Moisturizer - Probably the most hyped product in the box, and also probably my least favourite. It gives a gorgeous glowy effect to my skin, however the 'sheer tint release' although not strong, is a little too dark for my skin tone, which is such a shame.

GinZing - I really like using this eye cream, it hasn't gotten rid of my dark circles, but my eyes have looked a lot less puffy since using it. It is extremely creaming and moisturizing  but doesn't effect my concealer which is a winner. I probably won't repurchase this separately though as I don't think it justifies the price tag.


Drink Up-Intensive Overnight Mask - This was one of the products I was hoping to find a minituare size of, as I love the sound of it. I used it the night I got it, and have been using it weekly since, and I love it. First off it smells amazing, and the fact that it's clear is such a bonus (may have worn this to Asda when we needed food, but shhh!) My skin is left so much more hydrated and healthier in the morning. I love using it after giving my face a good exfoliation.

High-Potency Night-A-Mins - I always said I'd never buy a high end night time moisturiser, but this has changed my mind. I would re-purchase this again and again. I love the orange zest scent, the way it is so creamy, yet feels like nothing on my skin. I wake up in the morning and my skin looks so much clearer, brighter and replensished. I honestly can't recommend it enough. Plus this on it's own cost £33, and the set cost £39! (just saying!)

If you're looking for a good Christmas gift, or need to tell someone what to get you, I highly recommend this. Amazing!

Have you tried any of these?

  3. I love the Ginzing eye cream. I have the full size and it lasts ages!! I found the same thing with the vitazing. I have to be really careful when I rub it in as it goes orange and leaves me looking patchy if I'm not careful!
