Origins Original Skin

After sharing my fussy tenancy when it comes to serums I’ve decided to commit to that step in my skincare routine and pay more attention to those products that help to improve the quality of your skin. I’m not getting any younger (sob) so there is no time like the present to go on a serum spree and test out these sometimes illusive items that I’ve always been dubious over. Do they really make that much difference? Time to find out!

Serums can be a pricey addition and their list of ingredients and benefits can baffle even the most skincare savvy people. Before getting bogged down in technical jargon I figured it would be best to start with a brand that I already love – Origins. Their latest release happens to be a serum and comes in the form of their Original Skin Renewal Serum with Willowherb*. Part of their #QuaterLifeCrisis campaign this serum is targeted to help reverse those signs of aging that happen to us when we start hitting our late 20s (double sob). Combating lackluster skin, uneven pores and any rough areas, this really is a multipurpose diamond product that fixes a multitude of skincare woes.

I’ve been incorporating this into my daily routine, morning and night, for the past to weeks to see if this can really help with my #QuarterLifeCrisis. Although I can’t report anything groundbreaking (might be my cynical serum mind) this does leave my skin look plump and refreshed. Pores are pores in my eyes and will be there no matter what you do to them, however I can report that my skin does look more vibrant and feels happy. It sinks in without feeling tacky on the skin and anything that keeps my skin looking and feeling happy is worth it in my books!

Have you tried out this latest serum launch? What are your favourites to use?

    I haven’t had the chance to try out this serum just yet (it’s on the list, I’ll be 25 next fall and.. yeah) but some of my all time favourites are the Sarah Chapman Hydrating Booster (it’s amazing!) and the Advanced Night Repair. I don’t think or believe that topical treatments can to *that* much to the skin, so focusing on diet and water intake is really important to me – as is avoiding sun damage!

    • I adore the Sarah Chapman range – if only it was all cheaper ;) You defo can’t go wrong with good diet and water intake it does make all the difference!xx

  • Origins are quickly becoming my favourite skincare brand. I was very intrigued by this when I first came out x

  • I can’t make up my mind if I should try this or not! Origins are one of my favorite brands and it does sound amazing, but I’m worried it won’t make that much of a difference to my complexion.

    • I personally find that serums don’t although which is why I end up dabbling in a few but it really helps to improve hydration and overall texture to keep my skin looking soft and smooth xx

  • Sounds interesting, definitely! But I already have so many serums that I need to finish first, ugh…

  • This sounds interesting but I’m mid 30s so this probably won’t do much for my skin. :-( The beauty of being older… :-/

  • I really like this serum! I’ve been using it for almost a month now and i’ve noticed my skin looks a lot clearer and it’s actually helped my acne scars a lot too. I was a bit sceptical about serums are first but this one has converted me.

    I always use a serum but then I’m 46 and I wish I’d started using them at your age. I am currently really liking the L’Oreal revitalift laser renew one, and for night time I love the Body Shops Vit E serum in oil.

  • I do agree that nothing works for pores that much. Only think I found to work on temporary basis is ice and sometime cucumber. Would love to try this for a refreshed plump look.

    I finally get to try Origins this week! I ordered their Checks and Balances cleanser :) I’m quite sceptical of serums aswell x
