Product Review: Influenster's Origins Original Skin Vox Box

A couple months ago I signed up at Influenster's website for the possibility of receiving free products to test and review. I was excited when I was chosen to receive Origins Original Skin BoxBox.
The box contained a 1.7 oz matte moisturizer, .5 oz Renewal Serum and a 1 oz retexturizing mask with rose clay. 
I first tried the mask. I was a bit concerned that it may cause irritation to my face as I have had irritation from several different types of masks including one that contained rose oil.
Fortunately this mask did not give me any problems. It had a light fresh rose scent and was pleasantly cooling when applied but not uncomfortably tingly.
When I washed it off and dried my face my skin felt clean but not overly tight or dry. It was a very nice mask experience.

Then I tried the moisturizer which also had a light rose scent. It also had a fun, squishy jelly texture as opposed to a creamy one like most lotions. I found it to be very soothing and hydrating but it absorbed quickly and left my face with a soft matte finish which I had never experienced before. It reminds me of the texture of a makeup primer which makes me believe it's claims that it enhances the wear of makeup. I can't wait to try it under a full face of makeup and see how it performs.

I have not tried the serum yet but it plan to use it as a PM moisturizer after removing makeup. 

Overall I am really pleased with the feel and performance of these products. This line is available exclusively at Sephora and although I like these products I probably would not purchase them do to their higher end price point.
I was really glad to have the opportunity to test out these products and the sample sizes are quite generous and should last for a good little while. I will probably take them on my upcoming vacation.

Have you ever heard of Influenster? Do you like to use websites to receive free product samples? What are your favorite sites?

  1. Ooh, Origins - nice selection there. You got a good box. I used to use their mint face wash back in the day when I was a lot younger and my skin was oilier - I'm not sure how I'd handle it now, because it was very, very strong and kind of drying, but the scent was divine. I remember it being awesome for taking off grime at the end of a long, hot, sweaty day - you feel very tingly and burnished after!

  2. Origins tends to have some nice skin care products. Congrats on the score. There ginger based line is pretty nice.
