Skin heroes: Origins Spot Remover pads & Gel

About a week ago I had the most hideous break out of spots on my cheek and chin. My usual cleansers were not cutting it and these bad boys were angry and were not going anywhere. I think I can say this on behalf of everyone that spots really make you feel down about yourself I know I feel very self conscious and try to keep my cheek in particular covered by having my hair in my face.

Now I have heard of origins before I know it has been doing the rounds on the bloggersphere but sometimes I feel it is just a hype that suck people in which is why I never rushed out and bought anything from them. WHAT WAS I THINKING?! I could kick myself for not listening to everyone and guying Origins products sooner. I went to Origins with the intention of only buy the Origins Spot remover gel I did my research so I could be in and out of the store quickly as I find skin counters fairly intimidating ( anyone else feel like this) but the lady was so lovely on the counter in the House of Fraser City branch that I also came out with the Origins Spot Remover blemish treatment pads. These two combined have done wonders for my skin and I don’t think it has looked this good in a long time as my skin is quite prone to spots especially those pesky under the skin ones.

The Origins spot remover blemish treatment pads are really meant to prevent breakouts and one of side is slightly rough so they gently exfoliate your skin. I use these once a day in the evening after I have taken my make off just to get rid of the extra dirt and I really feel they have made a difference to my skin it seems brighter and cleaner. The only thing about these pads is the smell, it reminds me of that pink water you get at the dentist and as I hate the dentist it isn’t a fond smell! Haha. You get 60 of these so they should last you 2 months and priced at £22 I think this is a fair amount to pay for the amount of product.

The spot remover gel is very effective within two days my angry spots had been reduced and the redness has more or less disappeared. For best results I apply a small amount on the problem area with a cue tip so not to infect them. There is a slight burning sensation which only lasts a few minutes but in my eyes I just see it as telling me that it is working. This is now a holy grail in my skin care routine it really does work miracles and at £13 it is well worth it. I know the bottle looks teeny tiny but as you only need a small amount at a time it will last ages.

Sorry for the very long post but I had to express my love for these products with you in case some of you are struggling with your skin at the moment like me. Have any of you tried origins products? If so what should I get next?

  1. Hiya,
    You should definitely try the origins charcoal face mask. It's fantastic at pulling all the impurities from your pores and removing every bit of dirt. It's £20 for the tube but will last for ages as you only need to use it once a week. :) Elsa x
