Just a quick post on some samples I ordered from skincare company Origins.

My skin has been playing up over the last month or so, as horrible as it sounds I was getting tiny under the skin spots and bumps on my cheeks and chin, which I never used to get. Having combination to oily skin I'm very wary of what i put on my face, as it could really irritate me.
I noticed my friend had been using the Origins super Spot Remover and I've heard nothing but great things about it, so popped it in my online basket.

Even though the bottle is tiny, you only need a small amount. I tried it out last night before going to bed, and this morning my spots have decreased in size, redness and they're no longer sore. I can see this getting rid of them completely within the week, which would be amazing! But I'll keep you updated with how I get on with it.

I was then given the chance to add three more sample to try out,so I chose the Clear Improvements charcoal mask, which is said to clear pores, draws out impurities and brighten your complexion. I really dislike my pores so I'm willing to try anything.
I also got a sachet of Youthtopia Lift firming cream and Modern Friction gentle dermabrasion, I'll only get one use out of each so I won't be able to make a valid decision whether I like them or not, but it's always good to try new things out.

Do you use anything from Origins? Anything I should pick up?

Also a quick note that I've just made a profile on WIWT after spying it on LeanneMarie's latest post.
It'll hopefully push me to take more outfit photos, so if I don't pop them on here, you'll probably find them here :)


  1. Great review, I was so tempted to buy this when it was on recently. Really want to try Origins Vita Zing moisturiser too :) x

  2. This looks really interesting I haven't seen these at all. I must keep my eyes open for them as they look fab!


  3. I think I might have to try this X

  4. I love that Origins Super Spot Remover! I use the charcoal mask too - and I really love the overnight hydrating mask they do. xo
