Another name you've probably heard a lot in the blogging world is Origins, lots of bloggers are fans of this brand and i 100% understand why. I know i was very lucky to receive some items to review and over the past few weeks that's exactly what I've been doing. In fact I've been using nothing else but these products in my skincare routine and to be honest i can't imagine never needing to use anything else. 

First up is the DRINK UP INTENSIVE an over night face mask to 'quench your skins thirst' throughout the night. I make no secret of the fact that during the nights i can suffer with really dry skin, especially living where i used to as it was always so flippin cold so i always make sure my skin has a lot of product on to work its magic throughout the night. Now i don't know if it's this, or the fact i'm now in a warmer house but my skin is so bright and hydrated now. Like i didn't even realise how bad it was until it got so good, if that makes sense? Now don't expect you to wake up after one night with glowing skin, that just won't happen. But I've been using this for a month a few nights a week and I've noticed the biggest difference. I've also experienced longer lasting make up if i apply it in the morning too which we all know is always a sign of a good product.  I honestly cannot rate this enough,  it is worth the pennies a million times over and i urge everyone to go out and buy it right now!

Next up is the PURE CREAM CLEANSER which is perfect for removing make up, i use this with my Liz Earle hot cloth and it's really good for getting all the stubborn bits off. I always make a point of taking my make up off every day and sleeping it in would be my worst nightmare, but some products can be quite drying and i then i have to pile the moisturizer but with this being so hydrating i don't have a problem and it makes the perfect prep for the Drink Up mask. 

Ok so I've not really had much experience with the SPOT REMOVER as in the past month I've not had a single spot (i'll jinx this now) which makes me love what I've been using even more. But i have heard amazing things, just read Leannes review. 

And finally, the MAKE A DIFFERENCE  PLUS +  is a great product to use on the days of lounging around with no make up on to give your skin a bit of a break. It has a very fresh scent, and even though the consistency is a bit strange (it's gel like) it actually blends really well and doesn't leave your skin tacky at all. 
Overall by using the 3 of these products over the past month i can honestly say my skin has been the best it's  ever been. I don't use these products everyday, i do like to give my skin a break but i really cannot recommend them all enough and i would 100% buy them when these run out. Massive thumbs up from me!

Have you tried these products? What do you think?


  1. I can't live without my origin products! They are so worth the money and I'm glad they really helped with your skin :) The drink up mask is definitely on my to buy list xx


  2. I love Origins and won't be without them now. I'll be doing my reviews soon. I don't have the Drink Up Intensive mask but it's on my wish list now after seeing so many great reviews xx


  3. I freaking LOVE Origins! I have super oily skin but the Make a Difference + range has made such a difference to my face (duh!). I use it morning and night and my sebum is more controlled and skin feels amazing. I also love the Clear Improvements mask and the Out of Trouble mask as an overnight spot corrector :) Can't wait to try more! x

  4. I've heard so many great things about the Drink Up Intensive! I really need to get around to buying it, seems like something my skin will love!
