I have combination to oily skin that. Lately I feel like my pores are giant & my cheeks are cottage cheese texture & my under eyes are puffy & dark. Basically being over 30, not sleeping enough, & drinking copious amounts of wine isn’t great for my skin. I need something to wake up my face.
Enter Origins GinZing!
This mask boasts a refreshing peel fortified with coffee beans, panax ginseng, & gentle fruit acid complex that lifts away dull, dead skin plus dirt & debris leaving skin clear & radiant. PS it’s supposed to refine your pores making skin feel silky smooth to boot!
So after an impulse $28 sephora purchase I cleansed my face with my Ole wash & prepared for the peel.
I started with an ample squirt because when I tested it on my hand it definitely takes a healthy dose to get enough product to peel in the end.
Then I smoothed it evenly over my trouble areas, but avoiding sensitive zones.
The product goes on a little gloopy. It seems to start setting up quickly so getting a thick even layer is a little challenging. It does feel good on the skin & has a nice citrusy scent though.
After about 7 minutes I was feeling the telltale sign of tightening. I gave it about 15minutes to fully dry. Now the “smile to loosen” is a bit of a understatement.
Once I finished my face acrobatics it did peel pretty easily. One of my favorite things about this is the rose gold tone & it’s was pretty satisfying to see the swathes of color curl on my countertop.
I did take a little warm water to clean some small leftover bits away, but there really weren’t many. You know what else? My skin did feel smooth & refreshed & clear & radiant.
Also, I just noticed I did the classic nonsmiling before photo & smiling after photo. Overall I like this product & I definitely will work it into my routine.
