Origins: Rituali Tea Matcha Madness

20th Dec 2016 - Beauty
It’s no secret that I’m a self confessed tea-aholic. A strong cup of yorkshire tea is just about the only thing that has the power to get me out of bed in the morning, not to mention that a calming cup before I climb back under the duvet at night time is perhaps my most favourite part of the day. So when I stumbled upon Origin’s selection of Matcha based ‘Rituali Tea’ products, I just had to give these babies a whirl. Not only can I drink the stuff, now I can slather it over my face and body too, what’s not to love?
The Matcha Madness set comes in the most beautiful green tin which I’m almost certain I can find a use for now that I’ve emptied its contents (yes I know, I’m a hoarder). Within the tin I found a super cute selection of products including a face mask, body mask and even a little box containing two green tea, jasmine and rose tea bags. Adorable!

Origins Rituali Tea Matcha Madness Powdered Mask
You guys know I’m a sucker for a face mask, so it’s no surprise that the Matcha Madness powdered mask is my favourite product of them all. Yet again, the powder mask comes in the most adorable little tin, along with a lovely little mixing bowl and matching mixing tool. On first glance the powder looks quite intimidating, but trust me when I say that once you’ve followed the instructions you’ll end up with the most gorgeous concoction that has a texture so light and airy it almost feels like mousse.

All you have to do is add two teaspoons of the Matcha powder into your bowl along with two teaspoons of warm water and give it a good mix until it’s smooth and creamy. Slather this green goodness over your face and take 10 minutes to close your eyes and let the mixture do its thang. Rinse this baby off using a damp face cloth and your skin will instantly feel fresh and revitalised. I just love this product, and the fact that I look like some sort of creepy swamp monster when I’ve got it on makes me love it even more.

Origins Rituali Tea Matcha Madness Body Mask
Onto the body mask…oh how I adore this stuff. If you’re a fan of all things Origins, you’ll know that all of their stuff smells DIVINE and let me tell you this baby is no exception. The great thing about this mask is that you can use it two ways depending on what it is that your skin needs. My favourite way to enjoy this product is to use it as I would a face mask; I step out of the shower and apply a generous layer to slightly damp skin before leaving it on for a few minutes. Once it starts to dry I step back into the water and wash the product away, leaving my skin looking super soft and feeling fresh. If your skin feels like it needs something a bit more intense, take this tube into the shower with you and massage it onto wet skin to use as an exfoliator. I love any product that has the power to multitask.

Let me know if you try any of the Rituali Tea products out and which ones are your favourite. Better yet, send me a picture of you enjoying your Matcha face mask!
