Origins Gloomaway Body Souffle Review

Ok, wait, Origins Gloomaway is back by popular demand? That's what it says on the Origins site but I'm embarrassed to admit I've never even heard of it and thought it was a brand new collection.

Thank gawd I'm hearing about it now because it's awesomezzzzzzzz! FirePower!

Click it for a peep at Origins Gloomaway Grapefruit Body Souffle!

So far I've only tried out Origins Gloomaway Grapefruit Body Souffle but obviously I need to get to Origins quick and snap up the rest of this fine collection! Loves it!

Origins believes everyone needs a pick me up now and again and here you go products to make the gloom go away! I mean seriously who doesn't want products to liven up things and make the day seem brighter? What better blend than grapefruit, orange and mint to get things going when it's all about gloom sometimes.

Origins Gloomaway is the perfect blend of grapefruit, sweet orange, and mint. Honestly, I don't get the mint but damn straight the grapefruit and orange is in there and cocktail'ed into a fruity, sweet candy-like finish that's sure to please anyone who enjoys bright, sunny blends. The blend starts off with a tart almost sour note of grapefruit but blends into a candy-ish scent due to the sweet orange. A hint of mint can be detected for those with a stronger sense of smell but for the most part it's ever so subtle. It's difficult to explain but it's unique that's for sure and very, very pleasing. I think for the most part the combination of grapefruit and orange makes for a very sweet linger but dominant you'll get alot of orange. Anyway, the point is it's delightful and unique! Loves it!

Origins Gloomaway Body Souffle comes housed in this interesting little container. The bottom portion unscrews and you lift out the secondary container which has the moisturizer housed in it. For those of us liable to lose things this could be a problem as for me I just dig the packaging, dunno why but packaging tends to make me happy.

The souffle is heavily scented so it'll linger quite long once applied on skin. It's highly moisturizing and a luxurious cream, no skimping on this formula. It's ideal for knees, elbows, and legs as it offers a heavy dose of moisture and leaves behind a beautiful blend or grapefruit and orange.

If anything the souffle wet my appetite to try more of the collection. Other items releasing in the collection are as follows:

  • Gloomaway Grapefruit Body Mist ($25) This I have to have!
  • Gloomaway Grapefruit Gumballs ($5) Got these! Yum!
  • Gloomaway Grapefruit Body Wash & Bubble Bath ($21)
  • Gloomaway Grapefruit Body-Buffing Cleanser ($20)
  • Gloomaway Grapefruit Bath Bar ($13) Wants it!

For fun I also have a pack of the Origins Gloomaway Grapefruit Gumballs, yay chewable optimism for chasing away gloom and doom! They taste like tasty grapefruit and orange!

Nom, Nom!

Overall, I'm quite excited to explore this collection further. I tend not to get too excited about Bath and Body items outside of Lush but this had me at first sniff. Loving it. It's worthy of a sniff at your local Origins counter. But be warned you might become as addicted as I am.

Now I'm busy wishing for a bad day so I can chase it away with Gloomaway!

Anyone sniff this yet?

Do share!

Can't wait to hear your thoughts!

Back in the day (can't remember how many years ago) Origins had an eau de toilette in the original Gloomaway lineup. It was, predictably enough, amazing. I still have about a quarter of a bottle left, and I'm hoarding it because it is discontinued. I was brokenhearted when they discontinued the Gloomaway line and ecstatic to see it back. I'm on my second jar of Souffle and could roll in the stuff. Glad to see it gaining a (new) following!

Musey baby,

Remember how I worked for Origins For Evah? Well, I did. =)

Anyway, I think you might have received a faulty jar, because, unless something has changed in the world of O, it's not supposed to pop out of the outer shell like that... Lemme know if the person who sold it to you told you otherwise, though, and I'll stand here corrected.

So glad you have found the Gloomaway. It's my all-time favorite scent from Origins, and I could use some more. Had no idea about the gum-- I know the Peace of Mind (mint) gumballs have quite the cult following.

Enjoy chasing the gloom!
