Origins Superstar Minis Skincare Review

Is it just me, or are miniatures 10x more enjoyable to use than full-sized products? I have experimented a fair amount with skincare over the past few years but when I spotted this adorable trail-sized Origins set not too long ago, there was no doubt that it was going to end up in my basket.

Origins Superstar Minis Skincare Review

There was a time where my daily skincare routine involved a crazy 10-step process (ok I may have exaggerated a little), however I have since stripped it back to basics and I'm pleased to report that my skin is prettyy happy about it.

I love brands that focus on using more natural ingredients and Origins does exactly that, suitably summed up by their motto 'Powered by nature. Proven by science'. With the colder weather causing my skin to become unusually dry, I decided that it was time to switch things up and finally give these products a whirl. I mean, if this isn't the time for an 'energy-boosting' moisturiser, I don't know what is! 

So let me give you the rundown on my top three favourites that have slotted into my skincare routine rather seamlessly, starting off with the GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturiser. I love this moisturiser because it has a super light consistency and sinks into the skin beautifully, making it the perfect base for applying makeup. It's great for sensitive skin and has a gentle 'zingy' scent which makes it just even more enjoyable to apply first thing in the morning. 

Following my PM cleanse and scrubbing away the day's make-up, I have been using the High-Potency Night-A-Mins mineral-enriched renewal cream (boy that's a mouthful) to nourish my skin before hitting the sack. This night cream has a much richer consistency without feeling heavy on the skin and works really well to replenish moisture levels and leave my complexion looking radiant and healthy the following morning.

And finally... if you haven't heard about the Origins Active Charcoal Mask where have you been?! Although slightly intimidating at first sight, this clay mask works wonders for oily, blemish-prone skin. On those days where I'm in need of a deep cleanse, this has been my absolute go-to. I tend to use this every other week but if my skin is particularly troublesome,  I will use this up to twice a week to zap away any unwanted visitors.

Have you tried any of the Origins skincare range? What are your favourites?
