Last week, I was invited to Origins at The Houston Galleria to celebrate the launch of the lifestyle brand’s new discovery retail concept. In celebration of the new concept, Origins hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony, an afternoon of free, interactive beauty-oriented activities and a meet-and-greet with Stéphane De La Faverie, SVP and General Manager of Origins and “The Bachelor” stars, Catherine and Sean Lowe.
For each product sold during the launch, Origins donated $1 of the proceeds to the Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge in partnership with the Global ReLeaf project. Global ReLeaf supports the restoration of forests and the communities that depend on them.
The store felt just like it was in the middle of the jungle. Bright, earthy, green atmosphere. What I noticed immediately after testing a few of the products was that almost every product smelled like ginger. Which I love! I learned that ginger has some awesome benefits to the skin like anti-aging properties and combating against blemishes, acne, and hypo-pigmentation. It also helps with toning the skin which contributes to radiant skin.
I bought some FABULOUS products that I can’t wait to review and there will be a special giveaway soon!
