Origins is unveiling its new store concept Friday in SouthPark Mall. The cosmetics retailer will host a ribbon-cutting at 2:30 p.m. and a meet-and-greet with its vice president, Doreen Hatcher, as well as “Pretty Little Liars” actress Vanessa Ray.

Origins says the store redesign is a nod to its “plant to formula” process. In addition to now offering a free mini facial to shoppers, the new store features a free-standing product sample wall with rows of candy store-style jars, communal sinks in which to sample products and a complimentary gift-wrapping service.

Following the ribbon-cutting, Ray will make a special appearance at the store from 3-3:30 p.m.

For every product sold during its launch Friday, Origins will donate $1 to the Superior Moose Habitat ReLeaf Project in Superior National Forest, which supports forest restoration, Origins says.

The Origins store at SouthPark is located near the Center Court, next to LeVian by Jared. It is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-9 p.m. and Sunday from 12:30 p.m.-6 p.m.
