04.06.2018- Beauty Buys: Origins Additions

With the onset of summer, I’m sure that I’m not the only one taking the opportunity to remix some of my skincare staples. The warmer weather that we’ve had over the last few weeks has definitely caught me a little bit by surprise, and year after year, I always tend to forget just how much the heat disagrees with me! Don’t get me wrong, I love the sunshine as much as the next person, but when you’re dashing from one sweaty, airless space (the Tube) to another (the office), it can sometimes be a battle to keep cool and carry on- give me a trip to the beach pronto! Whilst I’m now really careful about using SPF all year (especially on my face), adjusting my skincare routine for summer is definitely something of a work in progress- and over the last few years it’s been a case of trial and error to find those products which are light enough to use when it’s warm but which don’t compromise on care. As well as migrating to a new moisturiser, over the last few weeks I’ve been using some hero products from Origins: 

I’ve been suffering with a bout of breakouts quite recently, so repurchased the Clear Improvement Mask to try and combat the problem areas on my face- and it’s well and truly working! This charcoal mask used to be a weekly staple of my routine in my early 20s, so I’m really happy to have rediscovered it again- especially as it’s so fantastic for drawing out impurities and targeting visible pores- another pet peeve which seem to flare up as it gets warmer. Joining forces with the mask to combat them is a new discovery in the shape of the Original Skin Pore Perfecting Cooling Primer. Made with willowherb, it’s a mousse which is perfect for using after moisturiser, instantly cooling the skin and keeping things fresh, even on the hottest of days- definitely a discovery which I’d recommend!
