I have fallen for Origins skincare

Origins is a brand I've heard lots of good things about but hadn't tried any of their products until a few months ago and I have to say that once I got my hands on one of them it was love at first use. Since then I've tried a few more products and I love all of them so decided to share with you my thoughts on them.

Drink-Up Intensive Overnight mask
 
I have talked about this mask before on my blog and it's been my skin saviour when I was going through a very dehydrated phase. So many people love it and rightly so, because it's fantastic and really works at deeply hydrating the skin. It feels luxurious on the face, smells amazing and after leaving it on for the whole night I wake up with softer, plumper and more hydrated skin. Any skin type will benefit from this mask and it has become a firm favourite in my skincare routine.
 
Clear Improvement Active Charcoal mask
 
This is also well known, amongst beauty enthusiasts, mask which clears out pores from all the dirt and debris that clog them. It contains active charcoal which acts like a magnet to draw out pore-cloggers, white China Clay - absorbs environmental pollutants and Lecithin which dissolves impurities. Even though there are many clay based masks on the market I feel like this one does the job really well without drying out my skin too much like some others tend to do. It's also really easy to remove with damped face cloth without pulling the skin. It leaves my skin much clearer and my pores less visible.
 
 
This mask is the one I reach for when my skin is paying me back, for the excessive amount of sugar I ate, in the form of some angry spots. The mask contains Zinc Oxide, Sulfur, calming Camphor and dries out any breakouts, removes dead cells leaving my skin smoother, less oily, calmer and looking better just right after one use. The smell of it and the texture reminds me a lot of Sudocream which also contains Zinc Oxide and it's great for treating your blemishes. I definitely recommend giving this mask a go if your skin is oily/combination, with breakouts, as you will see instant results.
 
Modern Friction Nature's Gentle Dermabrasion
 
Even though I do prefer nowadays chemical exfoliators which are more gentle on the skin and also more effective at removing dead cells and all the grime from the pores there is something incredibly satisfying at scrubbing (gently!) the face with some beads. Modern Friction contains skin-refining Rice Starch which very gently polishes the skin leaving it smooth and soft. I use it every couple of weeks followed by hydrating mask and my skin is loving it. I have only a travel sample size of this exfoliator but will definitely purchase a full size when I run out of it.
 
Original Skin Renewal Serum with Willowherb
 
Last but certainly not least is one of the newest products from Origins, the serum that many beauty bloggers raved about and the one that promises de-stress the skin, refines texture, restores glow, shrinks pores and blurs imperfections. And I have to say that it's a one bloody good serum that I just finished after using it for two months and very likely will re-purchase it. It's aimed at people in their twenties but it definitely didn't cause any damage to my more mature skin :) It wasn't a miracle worker that transformed my skin into the picture perfect but it definitely helped it to look better. My skin looks more radiant, it's been less oily and also, what made me buy the serum in the first place, my pores do look smaller. Of course they didn't disappear as it's not possible but they appear to be not as large as before. The formula of the serum is very light, it sinks into the skin immediately leaving it looking slightly luminous but not greasy or sticky. I highly recommend this serum to anyone looking to improve their skin's texture.

  1. You have sold it all to me! I haven't tried anything from Origins.. *shocker* It's not that easy for me to get my hands on here but I've been eyeing up the charcoal mask for a while. I've almost run out of my Glamglow Supermud and I've heard this is a more purse-friendly alternative so I'm intrigued to give it a go. The 10 minute and Overnight masks sound amazing - I really need to invest. xxx

  9. I used to love Origins so much as they had a shop near me and would always send out a £10 voucher on your birthday. Sadly the shop closed and their counter in Boots just isn't so appealing. But they are a great brand with lots of pioneering products and ingredients, well worth exploring.

  11. I must admit that I have never tried anything from Origins, they have long been under my radar but I somehow never purchase any. The serum sounds wonderful and I'll keep that in mind if I walk past Origins store.

  25. For the money I wasn't really that impressed with the GlamGlow, so if you want something a bit cheaper try the Origins one, it's as good :) x

  26. Hey Dagmara, I remember liking Origins masks when I was at college, but then I came to Belgium and the brand is not sold here! I wonder what I'll think if I get to try their stuff again. Glad to hear you like it so much!

  36. I considered checking out Origins, but every time I went to the counter in HOF, there either wasn't a worker at all, or they were just down right rude. Not giving them my money.
