Brand Blurb #9: Origins

Hello blog world!

Here we again with part 9 of the series, I am quite excited that I managed to stick with it for this long... although I think my brand knowledge is running out. Name any brands you would like me too review down below!

"Powered by Nature. Proven by Science."

Lets move on to the products!


Best Products: 

Make a Difference Plus Rejuvenating Treatment: $59
This night cream/moisturizer actually saved my skin. About two and a half year ago my skin went through a crazy dry phase, I decided enough was enough and I was going to get a skin regime that worked. I went into Mecca and they sold me this. It literally turned my severe dryness around in about 3 days. My skin have never been dry since. I used this every morning and night for about 6 months, then went to every night, and now only use it every other night as my skin is doing great on its own. Seriously a staple if you have dry skin!

Worst Products: 

Zero Oil Purifying Toner: $29
I don't think this is by any means a terrible toner, however it just wasn't right for me. For one it has alcohol in it, which I really don't like. Second of all, although it was probaby doing a great job of balancing my ph levels out, I just didnt see any instant results. I could be stupid for thinking that a toner should help, but I just felt like the tingly feeling it left my skin should have at least minimized pores over time, otherwise it is a bad tingle. I don't have overly oily skin most of the time so that could be why this didn't work. I think this is more of a bad recommendation from my sales assistant, rather then being a bad product. 

In-between Products:

A Perfect World Deep Cleaner: $32
I have only been using this for a short time and its going okay. My skin hasn't been too bad since I got back from Japan, so I am not sure if it this cleanser or the fact I use my Clarisonic. What I can say is that this does go great with my Clarisonic. It doesn't foam up very much, which is probably best for my combination/sensitive skin.  The smell is pleasant, it is priced right, and it doesn't have any nasty chemicals, so it goes alright in my book. When I finish off the tube I will be able to say for sure whether I will repurchase it. 

GinZng Refreshing Eye Cream: $45
This is a great eye cream for the mornings, it depuffs and brightens as it claims, looking like a very shimmery foundation in the pot. However I don't feel it is quite hydrating enough for the night, and the shimmer is most definitely pointless at night. Having two eyecreams isn't ideal as I am pretty lazy, but I think with this products you have to. 


One of my favourite brands for skincare of all time. They are sulfate free and generally cater towards sensitive skin. However I haven't tried too many products, and although I want to, my wallet wont allow it. I'm slowing testing things out, and 9/10 they succeed my expectations, so I cant wait to get my hands on more (next stop the overnight hydrating mask!)
