BEAUTY | Origins Original Skin Renewal Serum Review + GIVEAWAY

Ok, so I have a little confession to make - I'd never tried a serum before now. Reading beauty blogs converted me to double cleansing, eye creams and even facial oils but I'd always thought serum was just extra faff that I didn't need to bother with. I didn't think my skin needed all that moisture but after trying out this Origins Original Skin Renewal Serum* I can see I was wrong.

I thought that serums would be sticky and would just add time to my skincare routine but this sinks in so quickly and leaves skin feeling all nice and silky. I've been using this in between cleansing and moisturising in the mornings and evenings and I've really noticed a difference. IVs makes my skin so ick and dry even when I use facial oils but this extra step has really helped keep my face soft and in top condition...definitely no mean feat when I'm on those meds so I'm seriously impressed! I don't see myself starting up some crazy 11-step skincare routine any time soon but this is definitely something I'll be keeping up with.

And now for something exciting...I have a bottle of this lovely stuff to give away (For UK entrants only I'm afraid!) To enter all I ask is for two simple things:

- Follow me on bloglovin' here
- Leave a comment on this post saying things you would like to see more of or less of on the blog and your bloglovin' name :)

I'll announce the winner on Sunday 12th April...good luck!


THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THANKS TO ALL THOSE THAT ENTERED!

  3. Oh I'm so glad to hear that this is impressive Josie! :) I've been wanting to try it for a while now and it always seems to catch my eye when I'm out shopping but I've yet to try it.
    I really loved your 'Pieces That Work For Any Job Interview' blog post and found it really helpful and thought the way that you laid that out was fantastic. So I would like to see more of those kinds of posts in the future.
    And I'm Ellis Cochrane on Bloglovin' :)

  7. Why, of course I follow you! ;) I still haven't tried any Origins products before but I've heard so many good things. I want to try their Drink Up mask! My fave serum is by HealGel, I'd certainly like to see how this compares.


    What would I like to see more off? Well, more ootd's (where possible) and more Freddydog. Obvs.

  24. Serums are one of my favorite things! Think about them as food and nutrients for your skin, while moisturizers are like water. I didn't use a serum until maybe 2 or so years ago and I definitely saw a difference within a week!
