Last week I visited more of my favourite country, Italy. I thought I would share some of my favourite snaps. We crammed a lot into the short week we were there including; The Colosseum, The Roman Forum, The Spanish Steps, The Trevi Fountain, The Vatican, The Opera, The Catacombs, Sephora, lots of carbs and of course a couple of gelato's to name a few. Venice and Verona are next on my Italy list, it's such a beautiful country I would recommend everyone to visit at some point.

Origins formulate some of my favourite skincare products, including the energising Ginzing range. When I saw online that a new product was coming to the Ginzing family, I knew I had to try it for myself. I have enjoyed Origins cleansers in the past, both Checks and Balances and Zero Oil being my favourites. I have reviewed the Ginzing moisturiser and eye cream on my blog here.
The Origins Ginzing Refreshing Scrub Cleanser is a two in one cleanser and exfoliator. The formula is packed with radiance-boosting panax ginseng and caffeine meaning this is great for morning cleansing as it really awakens the skin. It also contains jojoba and carnauba wax which is really moisturising, as well as the natural essential oil blend of Grapefruit, Lemon and Spearmint which are very revitalising. This cleanser is suited to all skin types, it smooth’s and brightens the skin and also helps to unclog pores.
It’s a clear gel consistency which contains exfoliating beads in it which are gentle and natural to the skin. The product produces a lot of lather, so a little goes a long way. The scent of the cleanser is a lovely citrus fragrance to accompany the moisturiser. The cleanser is priced at an affordable £18.50 for 150ml.
I would say this product is more of a cleanser as it’s great for gentle daily exfoliate, but if you want a weekly version I would pick up Never A Dull Moment, also from Origins. This product isn’t great around the eye area, so I like to use a creamy cleanser first to remove my make-up and then go on to use this for a mild daily exfoliate and pick me up.
The Ginzing trio is the perfect way to start the mornings. This has become a staple in my morning skincare routine. Have you tried the Ginzing range?
