Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing products
I love it when origins does these sets! I'd strayed from the Ginseng Moisturizer, so this kit was a great way for me to get back to it with a travel size bottle. I use the face wash every day and love to have small ones for travel or gym bag. The charcoal mask is fantastic; I prefer the pink mask by Origins, but this mask is great for pores, especially if you break out. I really wanted to try the lotion (in the middle, green bottle) for redness around my nose, and I love it! I'm in my mid/late 20's and my routine is the frothy face wash with Clarisonic, this new green bottle lotion, and the ginseng moisturizer for day. at night I'll switch out the green bottle of lotion for the anti aging serum that came in the set and use it with Night-a-Mins (also by origins) instead of the Ginseng Moisturizer.
Most Helpful Critical Review Mixed results for sensitive combination skin.
(-)Plantscription Serum: Very, very greasy and heavy. Irritated my skin and caused break-outs. I had to stop using it. It's just too much!
(+)Ginzing Moisturizer: My favorite moisturizer! Light, gently hydrating, great citrus fragrance. No skin irritation. No breakouts. I love it!
(-)Mega-Musrhoom Treatment Lotion: This product smells AWFUL. Even if I use a better-scented cleanser before and moisturizer after (like the Ginzing line), I'm stuck all day smelling like dirt soaked in chemicals. And since it's right on my face the scent is POWERFUL all day! Ick! I wish the smell weren't such an issue because it really does help with redness that I get on my sensitive skin. I won't ever buy this again, though. It stinks.
(+)Checks and Balances cleanser: Not too drying, not too heavy. Regular old cleanser. It works, but nothing to write home about.
(+)Clear Improvement mask: Good for limited, cautious use with my combination skin. It can be a little drying if applied too liberally or too often, but does a great job of helping to diminish blackheads when used carefully.

This is the first skin care starter kit that i have purchased. I have mildly oily skin with very visible pores. I only ever have suffered from black head "acne". I've been using these products for 2 weeks and my skin feels great but looks awful. I had small bumps and a breakout in the first week and the pimples have seemed to become more cystic. I'm going to give it another week and will update my review! I do love the charcoal mask though!!!!
Tiny bumps all over face
Tucker323 from Chicago
I've been using this set for three days and my cheeks are full of tiny bumps / whiteheads. I wish I'd read reviews earlier as it looks like many people have this issue. Will need to discontinue and would not recommend!
I was skeptical!
Cay from MA
I was very skeptical about buying any type of skin care sets. I have the worst luck with my skin. From acne, blackheads, scars, you name it- no products I have bought in the past worked for me.
I'm now day 6 into using these products and can see a tremendous change in my skin. The charcoal mask is life changing! Overall I would give this product a 8.5/10.
I would be this product good quality

I have severely sensitive skin from autoimmune diseases that cause eczema and recently have gotten it on my scalp and forehead which was devastating as I began losing my baby hairs and more. This is one of the only brands that I have been able to not only use but also have it calm my eczema and I no longer have scabs and flakes on my scalp!(I use the toner on scalp soak my scalp wait a few hours and wash it out) every product that I've so far tried has been great for me. My skin looks fresh and more healthy than it has in a long long time and I'm actually excited to moisturize bc it brings me serious relief from my dry skin. The toner above everything is my absolute favorite item and I will buy it forever :)
It's clearly packed, but the caps are very dirty

When I opened the package, I found that their surfaces were dirty
Origins is always a hit gift
Ksandge from Florida
I purchased this as a gift - Origins has great products and is a great gift idea
would buy over and over
Bee Bee from New Jersey
Plantscription anti aging power serum is better then the high end brands. You can feel the tighten action. It was kind of scary at first. But what beautiful results on sagging skin. Tried Drink it up overnight and woke up to quite a surprise! Nice going Origins! I am 62 years old and never found anything this good.
Night girl from Greenville
Origins is good product. I just needed to get another brand that was just for my skin.
I had a reaction
hollie from new york
This is the first time I've bough origins products. I was looking for something to address the fine lines i am getting now that I am 39. I bought this set thinking it would work out and I have had a reaction to it. Before using these products the only think Ive ever used on my skin was dove soap and ponds moisturizing cream and my skin has never broken out and has always been smooth. After using these products for a few days my skin burned like it was on fire and both sides of my cheeks were full of millions of bumps. I discontinued using the products and went back to my normal soap and cream and it feels so much better, thankfully. I'm sorry I wasted my money but I guess you don't know until you try something.
Great starter kit
cas from ar
I love the scent as it's not over powering. My favorites are the moisturizer and the toning lotion. It is gentle on my skin. Great starter/sample kit if you are wanting to try something different or need an essential travel pack.
powrm from Oregon
will buy again,this set is good!
Noticable results--I love it!
SierraPrairie from Manhattan KS
I was a little leery after reading some of the reviews, but desperately needed some new everything. So glad I bought this set! I like ALL the products. The Checks & Balances face wash is wonderful for my combo skin--my skin feels taut, refreshed and clean--a little (as in a pea-sized droplet) does the trick. The mushroom toner is awesome--calmed down the redness in my skin, soothes, and smells great. The serum worked well, and the GinZing moisturizer smells great and noticeably hydrates my skin. The mask, while runnier than other clay masks, works! Would I buy this again? Absolutely. My skin feels healthier and looks more youthful and radiant. No more blemishes, either!
Great Products Except for Mega-Mushroom
Anna from Indiana
I loved all of the products in this set except for the Mega-Mushroom Toner/lotion. I bought this set because it seemed my skin was going through something and maybe I just needed to try something new. I had breakouts coming in and it just wasn't under control like usual. After one or two days, I started to get these red blotchy patches and I just though it was my skin doing something. They kept getting worse. I tried to just power through and after about a week and a half of the red patches I knew something was up. I was also getting more white heads which I though was odd. Anyways, I did more research and realized I wasn't alone. Many people that have sensitive skin or who are red heads tended to have the same issues. I've stopped using it and already I am noticing a difference. Seems to work well for 99% of people.
Not ordering again
MillieJ from Tampa, Fl
I used to use these products over 5 yrs ago and decided to give them a try again. The face wash smelled amazing, peppermint like. But man oh man, it dried the heck out of my face when I rinsed off. Have been trying for a couple of weeks and my skin is so dehydrated. SO much so, that even the moisturizers are not enough.
Back on the search for other products.
Great Set for Trying Them Out
Allison from South Carolina
I love all of the products in this set except for the Frothy Facewash. It's not a bad product, it's just not for me as I have such sensitive skin. It seemed to strip my skin and it felt a bit off after using it. Other than that, I have no complaints. This brand is wonderful and I am pleased with my purchase. Love the other products that this came with and it's nice to try out a set to give the brand a fair review. I'm happy with the majority of the ingredients they use. My favorite product is the Gel Moisturizer. It smells and feels amazing. This would make a lovely gift for someone who loves skincare and wants to try something new.
Ash from Long Beach,Ca
My skin is super sensitive.So far my skin had reacted well.I love the fresh smells.Each product compliments one another.You skin doesnt feel like your layer product on.Your skin absorbs it in a timely manner.
It never disappoints
Geniyongo from Abuja, Nigeria
I have been using the charcoal mask for a long time now. It never disappoints. I use it twice a week.
The portable sample products are more effective.
Oh so in love
yuvean from Georgia
I loved everything in this kit! I wanted to try out origins because my friends love them, so I got this kit! The face wash is super nice kinda minty, the toner is nice and not harsh, the serum and moisturizer just melt into the skin and they make your face feel soft and not greasy, and the mask gave me a tingly sensation which wasn't terrible because I knew it was working!
td from Philadelphia
everything is great except the frothy face wash. didn't really like the feeling of it.
Would buy again
Lea from St Johns, FL
I love how this moisturizer literally melts into your skin, doesn't feel oily at all.
This works for me
SavannahK from DE
I've used some origin products before and got mega mushroom relief samples before so I figured I'd try some more skincare from this brand. I really enjoy these products and I see a visible difference in my skin already. I've only had this set for about a week and my skin looks and feels good. My acne and dry skin definitely have gotten some relief.
My New Go To from Lafayette Indiana
I have super oily skin and usually use the philosophy brand skin care. I'm in my 30s and I have still struggled with blackheads an adult acne, philosophy is a great routine but didnt work for blackheads and redness so I wanted to try something new and this was my pick. After only two days my pores have visibly been reduced, the redness almost completely gone, and my skin is glowing and looks healthy. This is definitely my new go to. I will be buying the full size in all the above !
