Origins in the spotlight

I’ve been looking for a new moisturiser for a while now, and quite a few people recommended I try out something from Origins. So I decided to place a little order and see what all the fuss was about.

The moisturiser smells amazing – so refreshing and zingy, and it soaks into my skin beautifully. Now I understand why everyone raves about it!

I also decided to try a few other little bits and bobs, so treated myself to their spot treatment, which I am yet to use and their ‘No Puffery’ eye gel, which is so cooling and calming. The set I bought also came with the charcoal mask, which really makes your skin feel squeaky-clean and helps to unclog your pores.

The people at Origins very kindly added a little free gift to my order, which was this Modern Fiction dermabrasion, which I’ve already tried out and it make my skin feel silky smooth and very revitalised.

Overall I’m really impressed with the brand as a whole and am very tempted to repurchase some of these products once I’ve used these ones up, and perhaps try some other products as well.

Have you used any Origins products before? What would you recommend I try?

  1. I have been wanting to try that Origins GinZing moisturiser for such a long time now, Jenny. I have heard so many great reviews and, now, I can add your review to that too. I'm gonna have to just cave and buy it soon, I reckon, ha.

    Also, the free sample you got with the order looks great. I haven't heard anything about that product before, I don't think.

    I can see why you're tempted to buy more. If you do, please do let me know. I absolutely love reading about people's skincare purchases! :)

    1. I'm exactly the same Christina - I've been wanting to try it for ages and eventually I saw an offer on their website and decided to bite the bullet. I'm so glad it did because it's lovely :) I will definitely let you know if I get any more. I've just got some skincare from Benefit so will be doing a post about that soon as well xx

  2. Ugh I really need to try out products from this brand!

    1. You should definitely give one of them a try Ariana - I've been really impressed so far :) xx
