Rediscovering Old Favourites Part 1: Origins A Perfect World

Following a thorough Spring clean and the purchase of an Ikea Helmer unit to house my growing collection of beauty products, I found myself exclaiming "Oh yeah! I forgot about this!" several times, hence the idea for this series of posts where I basically start being a bit more thrifty and use up what I already have, which as luck would have it, are some really good products. 
What can I say, I have great taste.
Origins A Perfect World

First up is this daily age-defence moisturiser from Origins, containing white tea and SPF 25.
As you can see, there isn't a huge amount gone from this but when I first got it my skin was VERY dry and this wasn't really cutting it, so I put it aside for something a bit heavier. Now my skin has improved from using the Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate and I also need a lighter formula in this heat, so this is working out perfectly. Plus I love that it has an SPF of 25. Like pretty much all Origins stuff this has a uniquely citrus type of smell- kind of like vaguely-medicinal-oranges...does that even make sense? Who knows. Maybe I have heat stroke. 
Regardless, this is a nice lightweight moisturiser that sinks in quickly and sits well under make up. If you're looking for something for dry skin or for an all year-round moisturiser though I would probably avoid this. For me, for the time being, this is perfect.
Anyone else an Origins fan?


  1. I got the Origins clay mask a few weeks ago and can't get it to work for me although won't give up on the brand! I really want that Kiehl's serum though, sounds brill!

    1. It's so good- I'm about half way through the bottle and I'm dreading finishing it- its been so good for my skin!

  2. Vaguely medicinal oranges EXACTLY sums up the Origins scent!
