Coffee & tea drinker me got excited when I received an invite from Origins shortly after I learned their newest product is all about TEA. Guuuurls, meet RitualiTea™.
RitualiTea™ is Origins first-ever tea based collection, wholly inspired by tea rituals from around the world combined with the ingredient’s rich wellbeing benefits. RitualiTea’s four signature blends of sensorial and efficacious powder face and body masks puts the “me” back in #MeTime through a transformative and multi-sensorial beauty experience, both in and out of the shower.
RitualiTea™ Powder Face Mask’s artisanal process allows you to craft your own mask with water. When mixed, the powder transforms into an antioxidant rich tea-infused frothy cream. Each effervescent mask has a unique blend of tea leaves and raw natural ingredients to provide your skin with a restorative and healthy boost and sensorial benefits for radiant, healthy skin. The collection also features a signature non-slip CaliBowl™** and dual-ended tool that helps you mix, measure and apply.
The multi-use RitualiTea™ Cleansing Body Mask is a creamy, exfoliating treatment crafted with antioxidant-rich teas and naturally exfoliating sugars. For a luxurious full body mask, step out of the shower stream and massage onto skin to extend the buffing and exfoliating experience. For a more timely transformation, indulge your skin while showering to immediately exfoliate and smooth.
RitualiTea™ Powder Face Masks and Cleansing Body Masks are offered in four signature blends:
WITH OOLONG BLACK TEA & CHAI SPICES
This purifying mix helps refine and gently exfoliate skin to leave it clear and smooth. Black tea and spicy notes of cardamom and cinnamon warm the senses.
The polyphenols found in Oolong leaves are said to help eradicate the free radicals from our body.
Oolong dates back to the 10th century and was named “Oriental Beauty” in the 19th century by the Queen of England. It is now famously sourced from China where it is uniquely processed using artisanal techniques handed down through centuries.
MIND OVER MATE™
WITH YERBA MATE & CITRUS
This invigorating mix helps clarify the skin, to keep it looking vibrant and clear with a stimulating cooling sensation while the bright, citrus scent revives the senses.
Yerba Mate is known to be rich in minerals, antioxidants, amino acids and polyphenols that are said to provide a greater sense of clarity, and mental energy.
Yerba Mate is native to South America, where a single gourd of Yerba Mate is traditionally shared amongst friends to build a sense of community and extend friendship.
Yerba Mate is one of the most popular beverages in the world due to its widespread use and its invigorating benefits.
WITH ROOIBOS TEA & ROSE
This comforting blend helps replenish youthful appearance by calming skin, leaving it feeling smooth and soft while the fresh rose and herbal tea scent comforts the senses.
Rooibos is known to contain alpha-hydroxy acid and zinc, both of which can help calm several skin problems.
Rooibos is grown in South Africa and has been used by indigenous tribes for centuries to support overall well being.
WITH MATCHA AND GREEN TEA
This antioxidant-rich revitalizing blend helps renew, relax and restore skin’s texture while soothing and nurturing the senses with an herbaceous green tea scent.
This high-quality green tea is known to contain L-Theanine, an amino acid that is shown to relieve stress, improve focus and foster a state of wakeful relaxation.
Matcha is a highly important part of Japanese culture and was popularized by Buddhist Monks centuries ago when used to enhance mindful meditation and increase alertness.

My seatmates and I got excited to DIY our masks. Though I am not a DIY kind of person, when it comes to beauty & skin care I’m game!
Simply mix 1 teaspoon of RitualiTea™ Powder Face Mask with 1 teaspoon water.
Recommended to let it stay for 10 minutes before rinsing off.
Kinda obvious we had fun mixing our own RitualiTea™ Powder Face Masks.
Forever bungisngis caught on camera. Teehee. This is what it takes to get that top shot!
My initial thoughts on RitualiTea™ Powder Face Mask:
If you’re not a fan of DIY and you want convenience, you might find mixing the mask a tad bit tedious. But if preparing your skin care has become a ritual for you, then you’ll definitely love mixing your own mask.
The wonderful smell of tea is calming and soothing. Unfortunately, once you rinse it, the scent doesn’t linger anymore.
The tea leaves create a texture that’s unique from other masks. It’s one of the things I like about RitualiTea™ Powder Face Mask. I control the consistency depending how I want it (thought there’s a recommended ratio to prepare).
It does a great job in revitalizing the skin. I immediately felt my skin feeling a wee bit softer and smoother after applying the masks on my arm. This got me excited to try it on my face even more!
