Review: Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Treatment Lotion Mist


I’ve always been a fan of Origins skincare. My first ever eye-cream that I purchased from the brand was the Origins Ginzing Refreshing Eye Cream, a creamy and lightweight cream that worked wonders after long nights back in my university days. Throughout the years, I’ve continued to use a variety of their products, tried different ranges, and my favourite is still the Ginzing collection (and of course their face masks, which literally work for every skin type and make the perfect travel companion.)

When I saw that Origins had launched a new Ginzing range I was extremely excited to try it out. The product that stood out to me instantly was the Ginzing Lotion Mist, purely because I had never tried a mist from the brand and was already quite familiar with their moisturisers. 

The Origins lotion mist aims to instantly refresh the skin and leave it looking radiant and energetic. I first tried the mist in the morning before my skincare routine, so that I could see exactly the effect that it had. After a couple of sprays I noticed that it left my skin with a glowy but subtle sheen that looked as though I had just moisturised. I now personally love using this both in the mornings and throughout the day as it plumps up the skin and keeps it looking hydrated.

The mist has a citrus-esque smell which I don't mind at all and actually quite like, and it feels refreshing especially in the morning to wake up the skin. This would also be a great addition to your evening skin care routine.

The Origins lotion mist retails for £18, which I think is great value considering the range of ways it can be used and how useful it would be when travelling.

City break essentials

When travelling for a city break it can be extremely hard to pack, especially if you're heading to a completely new destination. I've always been one to overpack - especially when it comes to make up, let's be honest, don't we all?! As I've discovered more products that I love and use on a daily basis, it's become a lot easier to filter through what to take. Gone are the days where I take new products away with me to try on holiday, because frankly, most of the time you'll wish you had your staple products there that you know and are familiar with. That being said, there are always the essential companions that I pack for every trip, such as a good pair of earphones, a good wash bag and travel case that always come in handy.

When it comes to beauty products, I have a few staples that I always have in my handbag and take around with me daily, so eliminating through products is easier. Outfits can be more difficult- but if you really want to nail packing for a city break, then put together all your outfits together beforehand so you know roughly what you'll be wearing on each day. Some of my city break essentials are below.
