Our Favourite Origins Skincare Products
The best thing about Origins skincare is truly that every aspect of your skin’s health is considered when a product is formulated; how it impacts hydration, skin pH, and the overall result that the product should be giving your skin. We’ve rounded up our favourites from Origins Skincare that we think should have a spot in your routine!
Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Micellar Cleanser
Created to cleanse skin without leaving it feeling dry or tight, this micellar water from Origins is a must-have in your makeup removal arsenal. Formulated with Dr Andrew Weil’s exclusive to Origins Mushroom Complex, this is more than just a micellar water. This revolutionary skincare product sweeps away all traces of makeup and impurities from your day in a single step.
Traditional micellar water formulas also usually need to be rinsed off of the skin after use; that’s not necessary thanks to this nourishing, non-irritating formula!
Origins Drink Up™ Intensive Overnight Hydrating Mask
Perfect for thirsty skin that needs a little extra moisture overnight, this overnight hydrating mask from Origins skincare is packed with Avocado and Glacier Water to give your skin a dewy glow. Avocado is rich in skin-nourishing fatty acids, smoothing away visible signs of dryness and boosting your skin’s elasticity.
A sleeping mask like this one can be applied as the very last step of your nighttime skincare routine, allowing the powerful natural ingredients to work overnight so that you wake up with moisturised skin the next morning!
Origins Ginzing™ Oil-Free Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer
Formulated to energise dull skin that needs an extra shot of energy, the Oil-Free Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer uses the power of Ginseng Extract to revitalise skin. This botanical ingredient is incredibly beneficial for your skin, shielding it from harmful free radicals, stimulating collagen production, and more.
That’s not the only skin-nourishing ingredient in this Origins skincare moisturiser, though! This lightweight gel is packed with Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, and Caffeine to boost your skin’s hydration levels without leaving it feeling greasy or overwhelmed.
Origins Ginzing™ Refreshing Scrub Cleanser
We all know how crucial regular exfoliation is to keeping skin feeling smooth and radiant. This two in one cleanser and facial scrub from Origins skincare uses the power of Ginseng to refresh and revitalise skin, fading away the look of imperfections for a radiant glow.
True to their word about avoiding harmful ingredients in skincare, what sets this facial scrub apart from others are the completely natural scrubbing beads made of Jojoba Esters and Carnauba Wax.
These soft exfoliating particles are gentle enough even for the most sensitive skin, and naturally break down - unlike plastic microbeads that are harmful for the environment!
Origins High-Potency Night-A-Mins™ Oil-free Resurfacing Cream
Think of this Origins skincare product as a facial in a jar - seriously. Did you know that having glowy skin is a combination of sloughing away dead skin cells and making sure your skin has enough hydration?
This resurfacing cream does both; formulated with fruit-derived AHAs, it buffs away dead skin cells and stimulates collagen production in skin, while infusing your skin with long-lasting moisture.
Ideally used one or two nights a week to transform your skin, the Origins Resurfacing Cream is a skin-care must to tackle the signs of ageing, even skin tone, and bring radiance back to your skin.
Origins Original Skin™ Matte Moisturizer
Those with oily and combination skin may have found their holy grail with this moisturiser from Origins skincare! Designed to keep skin matte all day long, the Origins Original Skin™ Matte Moisturizer is a cult-favourite product around the world - and for good reason.
The star ingredient? Salicylic Acid - it’s incredibly effective at balancing the skin’s sebum production, leaving it matte all day long. It also has the added bonus of acting as a powerful natural anti-inflammatory, soothing any existing breakouts.
Another bonus of this ingredient is that it’s incredibly effective at minimising the appearance of pores for refined and shine-free skin.
