The first time I tried Origins (probably more than 10 years ago now, eek!), it turned out to be a pretty expensive mistake. Having little awareness of my skin type and how to look after it, I let my much younger self be talked into buying a number of things that did absolutely nothing for me, by a sales assistant who probably didn't care.
Since then however, my knowledge and confidence have happily increased, I've gone back to Origins a number of times (had much better experiences with sales assistants too) and whilst I haven't had much opportunity to try many products from the brand, I do have one or two firm favourites, including the 'A Perfect World Antioxidant Moisturiser'.
This moisturiser first became a regular part of my skincare regime a few years back, I used it religiously but for some reason or other I moved onto other products and forgot about this for a little while. It was only last year that I rediscovered it - I got a free 50ml tube in the Origins trade-in on Earth Day - and boy am I glad I did!
The 'A Perfect World Antioxidant Moisturiser' is part of Origins 'age fighting' range, it's free of nast preservatives and as you might expect, contains a number of antioxidant, firming and brightening ingredients, including white tea, Vitamin C and Murumuru butter.
The cream is definitely on the thicker side and could be a little heavy for some, but on my slightly dehydrated skin a little goes along way and it sinks in beautifully. It does leave a slight residue but as I use this as a night cream I really don't mind, I actually find that it makes my skin feel that much more comfortable, and still soft and supple when I wake up in the morning.
Possibly one of my favourite things about the moisturiser, and something that divides many reviewers, is the scent. A lot of people find it overpowering, but the blend of fresh citrus and herbs is somehow calming to me and so perfect to use at the end of a long day. I'm also really attracted by the soothing green shade of the glass jar the product is packaged in. I have repurchased this twice since the free tube I received and have no doubt I'll be repurchasing again when I run out.
Origins A Perfect World Antioxidant Moisturiser is £33 for 50ml and is available here. A version with SPF 25 is also available.
