I went shopping the other day and stopped at the Origins counter in House of Fraser, Dundrum to have a look at all the lovely colourful little gifts they are offering this year and I have to admit I was blown away! The gift sets are such amazing value that I just had to pick up a couple... for myself!
The fist one I picked up comes in a pretty little pouch and contains the famous GinZing eye cream (full size!). I have used this one previously, it really is amazing at taking away dark circles under the eyes and brightening the skin. You also get a 30ml tube of another one of their staple products - the VitaZing face cream. It's a lovely moisturizer that is slightly tinted and gives your skin an amazing glow - also one of my very favourite Origins products. The third item included in this set is a sample of the new brightening mascara. It's a nice day time mascara that gives you quite a bit of length. It has an absolutely massive wand though so if you struggle with mascara application this might not be the best one for you. This set costs €29 (the GinZing on it's own is €32!!!)
The second gift set I picked up is the Dr Weil Mega Mushroom one. In this set you will find a full sized Mega Mushroom Skin Relief Moisturizer - a lovely rich cream for sensitive skin that reduces redness and calms down irritated skin, a 30ml bottle of the soothing serum, 30ml of the face cleanser as well as a 50ml bottle of the soothing treatment lotion. All that for €59!!! Bearing in mind that the moisturizer on it's own is €72 it seemed madness to me not to buy this (this is not only my inner shopaholic speaking, I was actually looking for a good moisturizer!).
I've been using the Mega Mushroom set for a few days now and I do see an improvement in my skin, it is looking much smoother and doesn't feel as tight as it did. I suffer from the same problem every winter - as soon as it gets cold and the heating has to come on the skin around my chin gets extremely dry and sensitive and so far this range works perfectly for me.
Origins are well known for their amazing quality skincare and I am sure that anybody would love to find these babies under their tree (sets for guys are also available).
Whether you are treating yourself, like I did, or if you looking to impress a loved one, these are really the perfect gifts and such great value! I would advise you to hurry to a counter as these are selling like hotcakes.
