My First Time: Waking Up With Origins Ginzing Collection

Some days, waking up can seem almost impossible. It’s always those days when you’re wrapped up in your comforter, your bed is nice and cozy and your alarm keeps going off. Since this is basically every day for me, most days I feel and look like I could go back to bed any second. You know what’s really not a cute look? Tired skin. That’s right – dark circles, pale pallor, the works. Luckily, Origins has created a Ginzing Collection that’ll be sure to wake your skin up and keep you looking refreshed throughout the day.

What’s the sneaky main ingredient in this skincare line (that’s a morning essential to starting any day right)? Coffee! That’s right, this skincare line uses coffee beans as a main ingredient to benefit tired-looking skin. Just like how the caffeine in coffee wakes you up every morning, the coffee beans in this line has energizing properties that restore radiance to tired skin.

My faves from this line are definitely the Refreshing Eye Cream, the Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer, the Brightening Mascara and the life-saving SPF 40 Energy-Boosting Tinted Moisturizer.


The best part about this eye cream is not only that it’s moisturizing enough to keep skin refreshed all day, but it’s also slightly tinted! Most people might be hesitant to try it out at first because of the colour, but it’s the tint in this product that makes it so amazing. The second I put it on in the morning, I can already see the difference for my under-eyes! It’s even made me cut down on my concealer consumption (which, trust me, is a lot).


The combination of panax ginseng and coffee beans in this super lightweight moisturizer gives life back into your skin with one application. If the smell isn’t enough to wake you up, at least your skin will look light and refreshed.


Finally, a mascara that doesn’t clump! The brush is huge (in the best way possible) and instantly lifts lashes for a lush and lengthy look. I’m absolutely obsessed.

And last, but definitely not least, the real MVP: SPF 40 ENERGY-BOOSTING TINTED MOISTURIZER

When I went to Wayhome last month (has it really been a month already?!), this tinted moisturizer was seriously my life saver. Ever since trying it, I’ve become obsessed with how easy it’s made my morning ritual. Before discovering this prodcut, after cleansing I would usually have to tone, apply moisturizer, apply sunscreen (I have really dry skin, okay?) and THEN apply foundation on top. Now, after cleansing and toning I can just simply apply this product to my skin and I can magically have all of those things on my face! Nothing wakes me up more than an even faster morning routine that I can just throw together before I skip off to work. It was even more amazing to wear to a festival where doing my face was my last priority (but I obviously still wanted to look cute).

Even if you look like you’ve just crawled out of bed, why have skin that looks that way? Wake up feeling ready to take on the day with Origins new Ginzing Collection!

With love,


  1. The Energy Boosting Gel Moisturiser sounds really lovely, and a fabulously quick way of refreshing your skin in the morning. Beautiful imagery in this post, by the way!
