This rose gold mask is cute AF and brightens skin ASAP

If you didn’t already know, we LOVE Origins here in Project Vanity. And I’m not using the word love lightly here – we have the receipts to prove how much we adore their Clear Improvements Active Charcoal Mask, Smarty Plants CC Cream, By All Greens Foaming Deep Cleansing Mask and Maskimizer Skin-Optimizing Mask Primer! It’s a reliable skincare brand that's "powered by nature and proved by science", and we've even enjoyed partnering up with them to treat a few readers to an intimate Mix and Mask Workshop. That’s why we’re super excited that something new is hitting their shelves next week!

The new GinZing Peel Off Mask (P1,650) is the first of its kind from Origins and is designed to peel off dullness in just 10 minutes. According to their Sales Coordinator Samantha Lim, the GinZing line is often the customer’s gateway product to the brand because dullness is a general skin concern that can be experienced by all skin types. GinZing treatments are formulated to harness the power of coffee beans and panax ginseng for skincare – two antioxidant-rich ingredients scientifically proven to energize tired, dull skin.

This is how it looks like in action! The rose gold color seems like a small thing, but it makes the mask feel more special and luxurious. It's really easy to use and pretty much mess-free: I just applied a thin layer, waited 10 minutes, smiled, and then peeled the mask off from the edges. It smells absolutely heavenly as the product contains a blend of lemon, orange and apple fruit acid complexes. As long as you apply an even layer and avoid your brows and hairline, peeling the mask off is a breeze. It’s not as hydrating as the original GinZing Refreshing Face Mask (P1,500) which I also love but it does have that added exfoliating effect from the fruit acids.

I’m quite religious with exfoliating my face so I don’t deal with dullness on the regular but I hope you can see the patch of brightened skin where I applied it on my hand. It’s one of those things that you have to see and try for yourself to truly appreciate, and you definitely can! Just drop by an Origins counter and ask to try the new GinZing Peel Off Mask from their friendly beauty advisers.

Aside from the new peel off mask, they’re also launching their very first essence as part of the Original Skin franchise. The Original Skin Essence Lotion with Dual-Ferment Complex (P1,600) contains molasses, willowherb, chestnut seed, and phytosphingosine that’s meant to combat premature aging and give your skin a baby soft texture. I’ve only tried it on the back of my hand but it really did soften my skin, and willowherb is one of my favorite scents in skincare products. I have no idea of its long term effects yet, but I’m excited to get my hands on this when it launches next month!
