Most Loved: From Origins

After the first post in my “Most Loved” series (all about the Nars products, Mmmmm – link here) I had a huge amount of requests for one dedicated to Origins. Little did you guys know that I’d already photographed it! I’ve loved Origins since I first got into beauty products, which as you can imagine has resulted in a hefty amount of purchases over the years and I know my way around the counter pretty darn well. Needless to say that narrowing things down to five was a task that I failed at, so on this occasion we’ll go with six…

Origins Plantscripton Concealer
Medium coverage with a slightly dewier finish than most concealers. It gives a natural glow and works well with my skin all year round. I have the first three shades (greedy I know) so that I’m never stuck without it when my tan fades or appears (a girl can dream, right?)

Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask
An overnight mask that gives all the moisture. If you suffer with dry skin then you’ll love this. I pop it on around 20 minutes before I go to bed on days when things are looking a bit dry. Eight hours later, I wake up with plump and hydrated skin. Simples.

Origins Out Of Trouble Mask
This is a great one if you suffer with regular blemishes or oily skin. I used to fit into both those categories and used to use this at least once every week. I don’t need it as regularly at the moment, but I still like to crack it out when my face is looking a bit scary.

Origins Ginzing Moisturiser
Brightening, hydrating and by far the best smelling moisturiser I’ve EVER owned. I even have a back up tub stashed for a rainy days.

Origins Super Spot Remover
A spruced up, better smelling version of tea tree oil. It’s a gel more than an oil or serum which forms a protective layer over spots and dries them out. I also have a backup of this one too (which is pretty lucky considering I’m just about to run out).

Origins Eyeshadow in Storm Surge*
I find the formula of these eyeshadow pots really interesting, it could just be my pot, but they almost sit half way between a cream eyeshadow and a powder. Most shadow pots have a smooth consistency to them and are hard to pick up with a brush, but these allow me to pick up product with the swirl of a blending brush.

    I have to try so many products from Origins! At the top of my list is definitely the Drink-Up Intensive Mask, as I do suffer from dehydrated skin and I've heard countless rave reviews of this.

    I'm debating between purchasing the Plantscription concealer or NARS creamy concealer. Which one do you like better?

    Lovely! I haven't tried any Origins products before but I'm tempted by their masks; they're so raved about. If you own three shades of that concealer, it must be good. πŸ™‚ x

    I'd love to try some more Origins products. I hear such great things about them and I've had some good experiences myself. If only they were slightly more affordable, I'd buy the lot!

    Also, your link for the NARS: Most Loved post isn't working-just thought I'd let you know!

    I've heard a lot of good things about Origin's moisturizers, but I have so many that I'm trying to use up at the moment that I shouldn't bring another one on board. Oh well, I'll file it away in the back of my mind.

    I love the Ginzing Moisturiser, it's my fav moisturiser! Did you find that the Plantscription concealer is any good for eyes with dry skin and eczema? I know you said you were suffering a while ago?

    I love their concealer! The only one I have found to effectively cover my black under eye baggies! I also love the Drink Up-Intensive Mask… I have the driest skin and it does wonders for my skin using it 2 to 3 times per week.

    Origins is a brand that does Skincare right! I love so many of their products. The Super Spot Remover will always be in my regime & so too will the Drink Up Mask.
    I can recommend the Mega Mushroom range – its great for calming redness & hydrating
