Collective Origins Haul and First Impressions!

18 comments
Hey Lovelies,
I hope you're well and having a good week!
After reading lots of great reviews on Origins products lately, and hearing quite a few of my favourite beauty bloggers raving about their products, I decided to head down there and as you can see, I ended up getting quite a few things.
I think Origins is one of those places you can't leave without buying anything. The ladies that work at my nearest Origins are all very nice, knowledgeable and friendly. I think it's a great place to shop, a bit like MAC but more for skincare rather than make up and here are my first impressions and thoughts on everything I got but I will be doing more detailed reviews once I've tried all the products.
This is one of Origins best selling products and I can easily see why. When I tweeted asking which Origins product beauty bloggers would recommend to me, almost everyone suggested this one! My skin has been feeling quite dry lately and I bought the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask to hopefully put some moisture back into my skin! I will let you know in more detail how I'm getting on with this product, but so far, I love it. 
Origins Age-Defense Skin Guardian with Tea Tree
This was more of an impulse buy. When I explained to the lady at Origins that my skin has been feeling quite dry lately and she recommended me this product to go with the overnight mask. Origins Age-Defense Skin Guardian with Tea Tee is a serum You only need one pump of this. I have started applying  this every evening before my night cream. When I put this on, it makes my skin feels so soft and smooth, almost like a foundation primer and it contains anti ageing properties which is always a bonus!

Now I wasn't really looking for an eye cream or a face cream but when I went to Origins on the Saturday of the bank holiday weekend they were running a promotion where you get a free full sized eye cream worth £36.00 with any moisturiser that you buy. Now that offer was far too good to turn down, so I picked up the Origins Plantscription SPF 25 Anti-aging Cream and got the Origins Plantscription SPF 25 Anti-aging Eye Cream absolutely free! How good is that? I've not had a chance to try either of these products yet as I'm good for eye cream and moisturiser at the moment, but I've got these ready and waiting for me as soon as I run out. Once I start using them I will do a full review for you. 
Origins Cheeks and Balances Frothy Face Wash
This is another one of Origins best selling products. You only need the tiniest amount of this face wash to work up a rich lather and cleanse your face. Origins Cheeks and Balances Frothy Face Wash really leaves my skin feeling squeaky clean and it's the perfect product for combination skin. It contains broad leaf kelp extract which reduces excess oil production as well as wheat proteins which helps moisturise dry areas. This is quite a luxury product though so I'm still going to use my drugstore face wash and keep this one as a treat a couple of times a week.    
Origins Ginger Souffle Whipped Body Cream
I didn't buy this product myself but I decided to include it in this post as it's another Origins product I have recently acquired. My mum got this from her friend for her birthday, and I pinched it off her. I explained to my mum that 'you don't really need this so I'll keep it', and lucky for me she didn't object. The Origins Ginger Souffle Whipped Body Cream smells absolutely lovely. It's quite a spicy gingery scent (obviously, as it's got ginger in it). It smells a bit like Christmas and wintertime to me (not sure why, maybe it's the ginger), but for that reason I've decided to put this away and will start using it in the winter.
What's your favourite Origins product?
