The lovely Origins consultant, Lavina :)
Scroll back a week, I was an Origins virgin. Don't get me wrong, I knew who they were, I just hadn't ever tried any of their products. I was suffering from really dry skin which is totally weird for me, as I have really oily skin normally. I've seen their 'Drink Up' overnight mask raved about in the blogging world, so on my lunch time I went on a mission to buy one.
I rocked up to the counter and was greeted by the lovely Lavina (in Boots, Cardiff). What I loved is that she didn't push me to buy other products, she gave me a couple of suggestions and left it at that. As I was paying, she asked me if I'd like a complimentary facial - normally I automatically say no to these kind of things, but I've never had a facial before so I signed myself up for Thursday at 5 before an event I was heading to.
So today I went down for my facial. It might be the most relaxing half hour I've ever had! Lavina used 6 different products on me, now forgive me, I can't remember the order she used them in, but have a look in the pic to see what was used. My skin feels like silk or velvet, and definitely doesn't feel dry! I've used the Drink Up mask twice this week and it's really helped my skin, I haven't had any dry skin in a few days so I think it's really helping.
I didn't really know much about the brand before my facial, so while I was there I asked Lavina if there are any parabens or nasty chemicals in Origins - she confirmed that they don't use anything like that, they're all natural :) This may sound like a strange thing to say, but they felt and smelt very natural - so many of them smelt really fruity and zesty. This certainly won't be the last Origins purchase I make, I really want to try an exfoliator, the Gin Zing eye cream and some kind of moisturiser :)
Thanks Lavina for such a lovely facial :) And for all of you reading this - if you head to your local Origins counter, you can book in for a complimentary facial too - it lasts for 30 mins, they talk you through everything they use, and don't pressure you to purchase anything. You can go more than once too, how amazing is that :D
Have you tried Origins before?
