Origins 24 Hour Glow Set



Shortly after Christmas I made an Origins purchase with some money that I had been given from some of my family members. Having wanted to try a few more products from the brand for such a long time I decided that this would be the perfect opportunity. 

Upon having a browse online I stumbled across the Origins 24 Hour Glow Set on the Origins website, this lovely selection of products included High Potency Night-A-Mins (full size), GinZing Energy-boosting moisturiser 15 ml and the Checks & Balances Frothy face wash 30ml. The price of this set was £34 which is the total price of Night-A-Mins alone. I personally thought this was a very good deal indeed and proceeded to order it after reading just a few more reviews on Night-A-Mins before I clicked confirmation.

The High Potency Night-A-Mins had been a night cream upon my wish list for a very long time having read so many positive blog reviews in the past, therefore this seemed the perfect time to pick it up and also benefit from some extra added products. I can't fail to acknowledge the cute little cosmetic bag that came with it which I think is lovely; I really like the illustrations on it and I know it will come in handy in the future on more than one occasion. 

This is not a review on any of the products at the moment as I really haven't had long enough to use the night cream to be able to write my conclusion on it, however so far so good. The GinZing moisturiser is already a favourite of mine and I have done a review on this not so long back, you can read that here if you like.

Seeing that I purchased this from the Origins website I also qualified for a couple of samples at the checkout. I'm rather partial to a sample or two so I was super pleased about this. At the checkout I chose two eye creams, GinZing and Plantscription. It would have been nice if the GinZing eye cream sample had been in a little tube like the latter as I believe more product is in that and it also saves having a little packet open which can be messy at times. (Upon reading this back I had to get the samples out to check and yes I was correct, the GinZing sample contains 1.5ml and the Plantscription sample contains 5ml).

I'll be back with a full review of the products I've picked up within this set at a later date however seeing that it is still available to buy at the moment I wanted to feature this as soon as possible as I'm not sure how much longer it will be around for. This has already been removed from the Origins web page but it is still available at Debenhams and House of Fraser. There are also some similar sets floating around which are made up of different products but the same cosmetic bag, the Dr Weil set really appeals to me.

  3. Hey :) I had a little notification on my blogger dashboard on the Google + tab section, it had a link to creating a page on there. Other than that log into your Google + profile and click on settings, there should be something on there too. The bag is super cute isn't it :) x

  5. I've never actually tried anything from Origins but I've always fancied one of their face masks, I think if i was going to try anything I'd try the clear improvement one, I've had my eye on it for a while

  7. I’ve always wanted to try origins skincare but never got round to it. I did buy a
    origins grapefruit bath set just recently though including a body soufflé and
    bath/shower gel and this was incredible :-) x

  8. This looks like a lovely set, such a great deal!
    I've tried the GInZing eye cream and found it really stung my eyes, hope you have better luck :(
    Looking forward to hearing how you get on with Night-A-Mins! I love the little bag, too, what a lovely print :)

  9. I also just got the night-a-mins cream and so far so good! I am coming to bottom of my pot of the ginzing eye cream and it does have a really lovely effect. I definitely would like to try more from this brand.

  11. Origins isn't cruelty free? That's a surprise I always thought they were! So sad I missed out om this little set I viewed it but didnt anticipate how quickly it's sell out! Love the little bag that comes with this too, I've wanted to try night a mins for awhile too... :( x

  18. Oh I saw that set, it looked lovely :) I'm glad you liked it xx

  19. I've yet to try it as I want to finish off something else first, I know I like the smell of it having looked at in store but I've never tried it properly. I hope I have better luck with it. The bag is super nice isn't it :) xx

  20. It's really nice isn't it. I've read mixed reviews on the eye cream from the GinZing range so I'm looking forward to trying it xx

  21. Origins themselves no longer have this particular set, whether it will come back or not I do not know however it is available at Debenhams, House of Fraser and John Lewis xx

    ReplyDelete
  22. Nope, I always was convinced that they were. I knew at the time of buying this that they weren't but it's a bit weird as the name suggests that it is 'natural' brand which to me I wouldn't associate with animal testing xx

  23. Thank you Nadja :D I'm glad you like them and yes the GinZing moisturiser is lovely xx

  24. I know I know, it is such a shame. Hopefully they change in the near future xx

  27. Can't speak for any of your other products, but both eye creams are amazing! Only quip is that they aren't entirely hydrating, but still great!

    Great post!

  31. You're welcome Phoebe :) I hope you like what you try, I recommend ordering online if they have some good deals on, having said that you can buy Origins on Boots and they often do a free gift with an order. Yes it is a shame, I really hope they change xx
