Origins Plantscription moisturiser

Origins Plantscription

Origins Plantscription moisturiser - thick, creamy consistency

I've been using this little baby for a while now and wanted to give it a proper road test before I shared my thoughts with you on it.

You probably know I'm a sucker for Origins skincare.  I started off with a complimentary facial from them (which anyone can get you just need to book in), and then bought their Ginzing face moisturiser and their Ginzing facial scrub cleanser (both reviewed here).  So when the opportunity arose to try their Plantscription, I was pretty excited.

It's completely different to the Ginzing products, they're more of a lightweight gel texture (fast absorbing), while this is much heavier and thicker, making it perfect for Autumn/Winter when it's windier and drier.  

It absorbs pretty fast and feels really hydrating and nourishing, it's a very luxurious feeling cream and you only need a really small amount as a little goes a long way (that's what I like to hear from a £50 moisturiser!).

It's place in my skincare routine is in the morning, I use this after washing my face.  It prepares my skin well for foundation, or just the day ahead (in the evening I use a cleanser like Liz Earle C&P or Michael Todd honey & oat, then the Kiehls Midnight recovery serum).

I like to keep my skincare simple and not over-complicate things, I feel like my skin is at it's best when it's not being bombarded with different products, which is why I often refuse skincare reviews that are offered to me as I don't like to try to many different things out, I find my skin doesn't respond well after a while.

I feel that the Ginzing products are better for the Summer or warmer months as they're so light, and this is well suited for Winter.  I've been really pleased with it, it hasn't broken me out, I haven't reacted to it, and after using it my skin feels lovely and soft.  It's just a shame it's quite expensive, as now that I'm on maternity leave it's not something I'd be able to afford to replace.  If you're interested in picking one up for a present, or just a little treat for yourself, you can find it here, or at your local Origins counter.

  1. I love Origins products, they are really lovely and nourishing on the skin but I do agree, this is lighter and is better in warmer, summer months!! :)

  2. They're such great quality aren't they? :)

  3. I hate it when you find a product you love but can't afford to replace it! I still have a Estée Lauder ANR spaced hole on my bedside table after it ran out a few months ago :-( xx
