Origins Ginger Greats Gift Set Review

Ginger Essence Sensuous Skin Scent 1.7/oz

Origins is a brand I’ve been using off and on for years. I’ve used their mushroom line and I am a fan of their masks. I was leaving Sephora with a friend a couple of weeks ago when we passed an Origins store and decided to go in for a quick browse. About an hour later I left the store with the goodies pictured above.

The Ginzing Mist caught my eye first.  I always liked the idea of a facial mist but never actually bought one for myself.  The sales associate saw me checking out the bottle so he misted my friend and I, and we were sold. If you’ve never been professionally misted I highly recommend it 😊.  My friend was wearing light make up. I was bare faced. I loved the light, slightly citrus scent and how I instantly looked and felt refreshed.  My friend felt the same way and she also loved that her make up wasn’t affected. I’ve been reaching for it after workouts, as a finishing spray before I head out the door and as a pick me up throughout the day. I give the Ginzing Mist a big thumbs up. 

The next things to catch my eye were the Origins candles. You know I love a good candle. A candle with ginger, bergamot and clove sounded like a great idea. They were offering a holiday gift set with a ginger body wash, body creme and the smaller version of the Ginger Essence Skin Scent. That set has since sold out but all of the items are still available individually. I ended up loving everything in the set except the candle which had a very weak throw. I get an aromatherapy experience every time I shower with the body wash. The body creme was surprisingly moisturizing for a light creme. The Ginger Skin Scent is amazing! It’s such a unique blend of spicy and fresh that lasts about several hours on me. The 1.7oz is so sleek and portable I’ve been keeping it in my bag and spritzing throughout the day. 

We only have a few shopping days left. If you’re still gift buying pop in to your nearest Origins for a quick browse and check out their Ginger and Ginzing lines. Don’t forget to get misted!

    Looks really beautiful esp. the perfume bottle and your nails! The mist also sounds lovely I've tried a few drugstore brands and they are great at refreshing the skin/makeup esp. when I think my face might be a bit dry or too powdery/light looking or cakey. I think how it sprays can be a real deal breaker though – I've had some that feel like more like a slap in the face than a gentle spritz/mist! Hmm shame about the candle but at least everything else was great! :o)

      That bottle is pretty. A mist that feels like a slap in the face would not work. LOL!
