Origins released a newer updated blemish range a few months ago and since I still get zitty, I gave two of the products a whirl. They are the treatment gel and the blemish treatment pads. Another reason I wanted to try these is because I scar easily and get patches of pigmentation where I have once had a spot or bite or scratch. Poor, delicate skin. When it comes to spot treatment I like it […]
I think this is kinda a cool release from Origins, the Super Spot Remover range – actually there’s only 2 products but I like that. I mean I get spots but that doesn’t mean I want an entire range dedicated to them. The products – the Super Spot Remover Blemish Treatment Gel (10ml – £12) or Spot Remover BlemishTreatment Pads (60 Pads – £22). This has come at the right time because I have a […]
I already declared my love for the SkinCeutials skincare range but I must take a quick interlude to tell you that I took a break from it to try out a well known range – Dr Andrew Weil (Face lotion and face cream) which is for sensitive skin and the very famous Plantscription which is an anti aging serum. I believe the serum is really aimed at people in their late 30s+ so I am […]
Blusher rarely lasts more than 3 hours on me, so I’ve recently started layering (if I have time!) my blush! I use a cream or gel underneath followed by a powder on top. Origins Pinch Your Cheeks is a old school beauty product! I remember owning this many moons ago when I was at high school – perhaps I had convinced my mum to buy it for me! This now comes in 2 shades, Coralberry […]
I visited the CCO near me recently and bought a few bits and pieces – extremely random mind, but here goes! I bought Origins Gloomaway Gumballs – chewing gum but they taste of grapefruit and seriously don’t last for very long at all. When they dry up they go hard like fimo. Not sure if they are making me less grumpy but they taste good!
Although I am halfway through trialling skincare from one particular brand at the moment, it doesn’t mean I don’t sometimes deviate and use somewhat…quicker, easier products like, tinted moisturisers or 2 in 1 eye creams and concealers. Some days, speed is of the essence. Origins VitaZing SPF 15 Energy-boosting moisturizer with Mangosteen (I LOVE mangosteen, probably one of my favourite fruits) is a fruity smelling, light textured, hydrating day cream that borders on tinter moisturiser […]
If I could only take one make up product to hell with me, it would be concealer, probably because I value clear skin more coloured lips or long eyelashes. Hence, the search for new concealer never ends! Origins – not a brand I’ve used in a while – has a fairly new concealer with a cute name, Quick, Hide! which is exactly my motto when the mother in law appears. This is what they call […]
I just thought I’d share the product I am currently using. I test out a lot – and I mean a lot of skincare – from all kinds of companies and price ranges. At the moment this is what is working for me. My skin has been dry and sensitive, so although I love the idea of using Anti-Ageing products, I also need them to be quite natural. I also rotate but like I said, […]
