My 2013 Origins Favourites

Hey Lovelies,
Happy new year! I hope you're all well and having a good start to 2014! My first post of the year is going to be all about my favourite Origins  products of 2013. I love Origins skincare, it's a brand I've really got into in 2013 and I am looking forward to seeing what they have in store for us for 2014! Here are my top 3 Origins products of last year, and ones that are firm favourites in my skincare routine.  
Origins Modern Friction Exfoliator 
Origins Modern Friction Exfoliator, 125ml, RRP £33.00 (Link)
This has been my favourite exfoliator of 2013! It was recommended to me by the lovely Origins team which I met at an event in October, and I am really glad I got a sample of it in my goodie bag! Unlike many other exfoliators I've tried, the Origins Modern Friction Exfoliator has a thick and creamy texture. Origins advise that you can use this product on damp or dry skin. Personally I prefer using this in the shower when my skin is damp. I love this product because it feels really gentle on my skin. It contains rice starch which gently rids your skin of dead skin cells without being abrasive, as well as Vitamin C and lemon oil to brighten your skin and help protect it from free radicals. I use the Origins Modern Friction Exfoliator once a week. My skin feels so smooth after I use this product. As this scrub gets rid of any dead skin cells, the condition of my skin has noticably improved since I introduced the Origins Modern Friction Exfoliator to my skincare routine. I know this exfoliator is on the pricey side at £33 a tube, but as you really don't need much of this product it will last you a long time! Just be warned, this exfoliator stings like mad if you get it in your eyes. 
Origins DrinkUp Intensive Overnight Mask 
Origins DrinkUp Intensive Overnight Mask, 100ml, RRP £22.00 (Link) (Full Review)
I started to get more into face masks in 2013, and my favourite has got to be the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight mask. This product is very popular in the blogger world and and I bought it after it was recommended to me during one of the blogger chats on Twitter. I'm happy to say this face mask really lives up to the blogger hype surrounding it! I try to use the Origins Drink Up Overnight Mask once a week. I apply a thin layer of it to my skin in the evening after cleansing. The product takes about 5 or 10 minutes to sink into my skin. Once it has absorbed into my skin I go to bed. In the morning when I wake up my skin not only feels more moisturised but also looks plumper and smoother! I love the fruity peach scent of the Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. It contains avocado oil, mango butter and Japanese seaweed to keep your skin hydrated and prevent future moisture loss. 
Origins GinZing Moisturiser
Origins GinZing Moisturiser, 50ml, RRP £23.00 (Link) (Full Review)
The Origins GinZing Moisturiser is another blogger favourite that's made it's way into my 2013 Origins Favourites. I was lucky to receive this product when I attended an Origins event in back in October and I have been using it regularly since. This moisturiser contains Panax Ginseng and Coffee Beans to help refresh and hydrate your skin. It's oil free and has an amazing citrus scent to it. The product has a gel like texture which absorbs quickly into my skin. I love how the Origins GinZing Moisturiser keeps me hydrated all day long. I have also noticed that my T-zone is less oily when I use this product.
Well, that's it for my Origins Favourites of 2013. Which Origins products have you been loving in 2013?
I hope you've enjoyed this post and thanks for reading!

  10. I need to get my butt in gear and get some Origin products! Especially, the Drink Up mask which has been on my list foreverrrrr. I like that it contains avocado oil as well.

    I have a really oily T-Zone as well so it's great that you mentioned that while talking about the moisturizer. I like cirtrusy scent as too, as long as it's not TOO strong.

    Thanks for sharing Nuala!

    Oh and I asked you on Twitter too but I'm dying to get that link for the Origins event post! I'd love to see what one of those was like!



  11. I absolutely adore the Overnight Mask and Ginzing Moisturizer - they have definitely changed my skin for the better! Another favourite of mine is the Mega-Bright serum, a little pricey but so, so amazing! xx

  12. Everyone has been raving about Origins products this year, will definitely need to order some to see what the rave is all about. I think you convinced me to try the Ginzing moisturiser, since my T-zone is quite oily as well :)

  13. Ahh, LOVE Origins! Their GinZing moisturiser is one of my favourites and although they are quite pricey, I think they are absolutely worth it. Really want to try Modern Friction, everyone's raving about it! Xx
