For the best part of two years one moisturiser in particular had been on my list to try, that being Origins High-Potency Night-A-Mins. For a rather long time I had read numerous good things about this particular night cream therefore just after Christmas I decided to purchase it within the Origins 24 Hour Glow Set with some money that I had received as a gift. Ever since the beginning of January I have being using this of an evening therefore felt it was the perfect time to share with you my thoughts.
First of all the packaging as I have previously mentioned when sharing my thoughts on Origins GinZing isn’t one that I’m particularly fond of. Visually I really do like it however my main gripe purely boils down to hygiene; it isn’t the most hygienic packaging for a moisturiser that you’re using every evening on freshly cleansed skin therefore try to ensure that you’re hands are clean before using it.
The texture of this moisturiser is really nice, I find it thicker than my daytime one which is to be expected however it isn’t too heavy or greasy at all, in fact it is a pure delight to use and smells wonderful. For £34 I’m the first to admit that it is quite expensive, this is the main reason why it took me so long to buy it and when I think back I only purchased it because of how good the offer was with the set at the time in which it was included. Having now used this product I can say that I wouldn’t want to be without it, it’s lasting me such a long time as nearly three and a half months in I’ve not made much a dent into it; a little goes quite a long way in my opinion.
I generally use this on top of Hydraluron or most recently Effaclar Duo + which has being working sheer magic on my skin as of late. In the mornings I can tell when I have used this because my skin really does look more refreshed and brighter; it also feels incredibly soft and supple. I have to admit that the claims from Origins do ring true with this particular product because I really can see a visible difference when I don’t use it of an evening.
Personally I cannot recommend this enough, for reference my skin is oily/combination where this is recommended for those with combination to dry however this has not been a hindrance to me at all; in fact it has worked so incredibly well that I know I will be repurchasing this in the future. I’m aware that when it comes to Origins there is a bit of concern over the ingredients and indeed the brand name which I do feel can be a bit misleading. Having said that so far everything that I have tried from the brand has worked really well for me and has left me feeling quite positive about the products and indeed the results; for me they have worked so why fix something if it isn’t broke? I’d really like to hear your views on Origins below if you have something to share or if indeed you’ve maybe found something even better.
