[Review] Origins GinZing Energy-boosting Moisturizer

Einer meiner Vorsätze für 2014 war, mich mehr um meine Hautpflege zu küm­mern, neue Pro­dukte zu ent­decken und diese auch regelmäßig anzuwen­den. Ende Jan­uar legte ich mir dann einige neue Pflege­pro­dukte zu, unter anderem die GinZ­ing Creme von Ori­gins.

Montagne Jeunesse Face Masks

Mon­tagne Jeunesse is a brand which I know from the UK. The brand was founded in 1985 by a veg­e­tar­ian. All the prod­ucts are veg­e­tar­ian and not tested on ani­mals, which makes them a real win­ner for me.

Montagne Jeunesse

I don’t know exactly since when you can buy Mon­tagne Jeunesse prod­ucts in Ger­many, but I dis­cov­ered their face masks at Müller in Novem­ber and at Pri­mark a few weeks ago as well. I paid 1,35€ each for the Blem­ish Mud and Creamy Coconut at Pri­mark and 0,69€ for the Peel Off Mask at Müller.

Creamy Coconut, 15ml

This mask is described as “hydrat­ing vital­ity boost for tired skin”. It con­tains coconut water and shea but­ter. Before apply­ing the mask, you have to cleanse your face. After 10 to 15 min­utes res­i­dence time you have to wash your face again to remove the mask.

Blem­ish Mud, 20ml

This is a “deep cleans­ing with Aloe Juice for blem­ish prone skin”. It con­tains Aloe Vera, Wil­low, Rose­mary and Witch Hazel. You have to use it the same way as the Creamy Coconut one.

Peel Off Mask, 6ml

This mask con­tains Cucum­ber. After apply­ing it, you have to wait 15 to 20 min­utes before you can take it off.

Montagne Jeunesse2

After using this masks my skin feels very soft and clean, but not dry. I can’t decide which one I like the best, because they’re all great and unique. I like to alter­nate between them each time.

Tip: Here on their web­site you can test which type of mask is best for your type of skin!

Have you ever tried one of the Mon­tagne Jeunesse masks?

Rituals Laughing Buddha

Last sum­mer I spent a few days in Ham­burg. In my hotel room there were some prod­ucts by Rit­u­als, which I really enjoyed using. So back home, I went to the Rit­u­als shop in Dort­mund (Thier Galerie) and bought some of their skin care. The prod­ucts from the “Laugh­ing Bud­dha Range” are by far my favourites. Today, I want to show you the shower oil and the body cream.


For­tune Oil Sweet Orange & Cedar Wood, 8,50€

This car­ing shower oil trans­forms into a soft foam when you rub it on your skin and leaves it incred­i­bly soft. Espe­cially in win­ter I pre­fer shower oils to gels, because they are bet­ter for dry skin. It smells AMAZING, like fresh spicy oranges. The bot­tle con­tains 200ml, but it’s pretty effi­cient, so that you don’t need much and it will last long.

Touch of Hap­pi­ness, 6,50€

This is actu­ally a mini size of the rich and nour­ish­ing body cream, which con­tains 70ml. It smells like sweet orange and cedar wood – a very warm fra­grance. I mostly use this cream for my hands, because the shower oil is rich enough, so that you don’t nec­es­sar­ily need to use a cream. My hands become very vel­vety after apply­ing it.

Rit­u­als is a pretty young brand, which was founded in 2000. The prod­ucts are not tested on ani­mals and are all suit­able for veg­e­tar­i­ans. The prices are slightly higher, but I think every­one needs a lit­tle bit of lux­ury every now and then.

Do you know Rit­u­als? Which prod­ucts are your favourites?
