One Brand Focus – Origins

Origins was one of the first skincare brands I started using on a regular basis and it was my mum who introduced me to them whilst on holiday in New York 10 years ago & I’ve never looked back. I thought I’d share a few of my favourite Origins products with you.

Selection Origins Skincare

Origins Make a Difference Skin Rejuvenating Treatment Lotion – This was a lovely toner and I noticed a visible improvement in my skin after using this (so sad that this is now empty). It helped keep my skin soft and looking bright, my dark acne scars look better after using this. They are starting to fade so I will be repurchasing a new bottle and I think they have improved the formula so I am excited to see if its even better. This is a gentle toner and very soothing too.

Origins Clear Improvement Mask – This is such a popular mask. I only use this a couple of times a month, if I feel myself getting a breakout or my skin is a little more oily than normal I will apply this and leave it on for about 15 minutes. I don’t like to let it dry as it makes my skin feel a little tight and dried out so I leave it just long enough and wipe it off with a warm flannel. It is great at giving a really deep clean feeling and drawing out all the dirt and sebum from your pores. My husband likes to use this too especially on his nose.

Origins Mega Bright Dark Circle Minimizer Eye Cream* This little pot has lasted me since January and I use it at least 6 times a week. Although it’s quite a thick eye cream my concealer sits on top of it well, no slipping about or too much creasing so thats a thumbs up. It is very hydrating and makes my under eye area feel plump, moisturised and bright. I have noticed my under eyes are looking less dull since using this so I would say it works at brigtening too. It is ticking all the boxes for me.

Favourite Origins Products

Origins Brighter By Nature High-potency Brightening Peel Pads – These are like my secret weapon in the fight against dull skin. I love products that promise to give me radiant skin and these peel pads are damn good. The fruit acids exfoliate your skin and remove all the dead skin to keep your skin looking healthy. The pads are a little textured, but I don’t press too hard when using them so its not abrasive on my skin. I use the cotton pad front and back, I use them once a week as I find using them more often than that a little too harsh for me. So if you want brighter, glowing skin these pads will be right up your street.

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask – This is another product with a cult following, I do like using this overnight mask when I know I have to get up early or If I have an important day where I need to look my best as this just gives my skin a boost of hydration and helps it look plumped, more youthful and my fine lines are less dehydrated & are less visible. It smells incredible too. I’ve been through a number of tubes and always repurchase.

Origins Super Spot Remover – I resisted buying this for so long, as I thought it was such a small pot & how good can it actually be?! Well pretty damn good, let me tell you. This treatment gel is instantly cooling and you can feel it working right away. It can sting a little but that only lasts a few seconds, this is a targeted treatment so you only need to put it on the area where you feel a blemish coming or if you have a blemish thats already erupted. I don’t suffer too badly with breakouts but when I do I pop this on anytime of day and it helps calm and treat the area. It stops blemishes from becoming too sore & angry and helps them clear up much faster too.  This bottle might be small but the contents are pretty mighty & I don’t know how I’ve lived without it. I am so pleased I finally took the plunge & bought it. I can see why it is a firm favourite of so many people. Its also a handy sized little bottle to travel with as that is when I tend to get breakouts.

I don’t have any on the go at the moment but I love the Origins Mega Mushroom range and tend to buy this during the winter months as it is very hydrating and good at calming the redness in my skin. I tend to get more redness when Its cold & from using the central heating. That really dries my skin out so I like to treat myself to a few items from the Mega Mushroom range so they get an honourable mention too.

I’d love to know what Origins products you’re using & what you couldn’t live without.
