Origins High Potency Night-a-Mins

I hear the angels sing, and what are they singing? *Ahhhhhh Origins Night-A-Mins*

Origins Night-A-Mins: £33

I've had some mixed opinions on Origins skin care, after the GinZing mishap and my love for Checks & Balances, I've been on the fence about their products... Until now.

Dry skin? Check. Tight feeling? Check. Uneven lack lustre skin tone? Check.

I'll throw my hands up immediately and say I slack in my skin care and one product I was desperate for was a night cream. I searched all over the blogosphere and up popped this baby!

The cream is thick, white and smells citrusy. I find a little goes a long way and the scent is subtle. The only gripe I have with this is that it leaves my skin a bit greasy but in the morning, I'm super moisturised and no grease in sight.

Now onto the samples... I got 4!!! One even a deluxe which I chose as an extra pot of the Origins Night-A-Mins, and 3 mini samples which include the Clear Up charcoal mask, Drink Up mask and Modern Friction face scrub.

The Clear Up mask is great, I slap this on a pesky spot to draw it out or down my t-zone to reduce to look of blackheads. All I all, this is good and I'll be purchasing full size.

The Drink Up mask? It's a bit hit and miss in my opinion, not something I found worked that well. On terms of hydration, I say the No.7 Hydration Mask is better.

And finally the scrub, great formulation and abrasive - what I like in a scrub! I'd purchase full size but the price puts me off! It's a strain on the purse strings but a little goes a long way - all swings and roundabouts!

Overall, my experience with Origins has been a bit mixed but more successful than last time.

Have you tried Origins? Do you like any of their products?

  7. I love the Clear Improvements mask - it does wonders when my skin is freaking out. I really want to try more Origins, but they don't ship (via their website) to Australia and there is very little on e-Bay!
