I recently changed up my skincare routine and decided to try out a new moisturiser. The reason behind this was that I was using Oilatum which I love but, had read it contains large amounts of mineral oils. These are known to cause blackheads and I suffer from a few around my nose so decided to veer away from products known to cause them. I have quite a few Origins products and love all of them so Origins was my first port of call when choosing a new moisturiser.
At the Origins counter I told the lady suffer from dry skin and she observed that I am slightly oily on my T-Zone. She recommended the Make A Difference Plus +. Origins aim this moisturiser towards dry/very dry skin types.
So far I really like this moisturiser. I only need a tiny amount and I use it twice a day. I am using it in conjunction with my hydraluron. I do feel if I wasn't using my hydraluron that it wouldn't be rich enough for my skin. However, I may have been using products that have been too rich for my skin in the past as since I have started using this moisturiser I haven't had any breakouts. I'm not using it long enough to comment on my blackheads. I was expensive enough at €45 but you only need to apply the smallest amount so it will last ages. Another concern I had when opting for an Origins moisturiser was, would it irritate my sensitive skin as they contain essential oils. I can report I have had no problems what so ever on that front. Origins has once again lived up to my expectations. The next product I want to try from them is the Brighter By Nature exfoliating pads. I tested them in store and they feel amazing.
What Origins products have you tried? What do you recommend I try next?
