Our love for Origins face masks is well documented – we’ve previously mentioned the miraculous spot-zapping powers of the Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask and reviewed the super-hydrating Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. The brand’s mission is to produce high-performance natural skincare that uses plants, organic ingredients and 100% natural essential oils. All products are formulated without parabens, phthalates propylene glycol, mineral oil, PABA, petrolatum, paraffin, DEA and animal ingredients, and are manufactured using a combination of renewable resources, wind energy and earth-friendly practices.
Apart from the proven efficacy of their face masks, Origins also gets glowing recommendations for a few of their other products and I’ve added some of them to my London shopping list for next month:
GinZing Energy Boosting Moisturiser
This lightweight, oil-free moisturiser made with legendary skin-boosters like Panax ginseng and coffee beans, jumpstarts hydration levels. Lacklustre-looking skin is rapidly refreshed and revitalised to create a healthy, vibrant glow.
Super Spot Remover Blemish Treatment Gel
Blemish-busting salicylic acid instantly helps to speed up healing while anti-spot technology helps visibly correct post blemish scarring. Caffeine and red algae calm the skin and help to visibly relieve redness. And to help keep skin looking spotless, super exfoliators eliminate excess oils and pore-clogging debris.
Make A Difference Plus+ Rejuvenating Treatment Gel
An oil-free moisture booster for dehydrated skin, fortified with Rose of Jericho, litchi and watermelon. Can be worn alone or as a hydrating serum underneath your day or night cream. This formula is for oily/combination skin but they also make a moisturiser version for normal/dry and an ultra-rich cream for very dry skin.
High Potency Night-A-Mins Mineral-enriched Renewal Cream
Acting as an overnight resurfacer, this cream gently exfoliates your skin as you sleep while enriching it with Vitamins C, E & H for added brightness. Beauty blogger Lily Pebbles recommends this product as part of her winter skincare routine and says: “The High Potency Night-A-Mins is a very thick night cream that smells of oranges and leaves a thick layer of moisture on my skin before going to sleep. This is my favourite to use at night, especially when I’m feeling dry and for those of you who have oily skin, this also comes in an oil-free formula.”
No Puffery Cooling Roll-on
The brand’s latest innovation is this incredibly cooling roll-on treatment with yeast extract that instantly de-puffs your eye area as it brightens the look of dark circles. Read what the girls at Nouvelle Daily think of it here.
