In Love with Origins

I was invited along yesterday for a mini-facial and skin consultation at Origins in Nottingham. I have used a couple of Origin products before, mostly 'borrowed' from my mother.. and I loved them, but have never purchased anything for myself. I knew that the brand was really natural and wholesome but not a lot else, so it was really interesting to go along and find out some more. I was looked after by the absolutely wonderful Nichola who was so lovely and a genius when it came to skincare, she knew everything! She gave me some background info about the brand and then we had a chat about my skin and what products would be best suited for me.

Origins is a completely natural and ethical company! All of their products are organic with 100% natural essential oils and absolutely no nasties. They manufacture using renewable resources, are earth-friendly and just all round good guys!




After finding out my skin type, Nichola then took me into a little room, which was just like stepping into a professional spa! She gave me the most amazing facial using the recommended products. After a good cleanse, tone, exfoliation, moisture mask and moisturisor application I felt like I could fall asleep right there and then, it was so relaxing!  My skin felt amazing afterwards and all of the products smelt absolutely heavenly! I was then shown and talked through all the products that she used on my skin and I was given some samples to take away with me.




What's best is that anyone can pop along to the counter in House of Fraser in Nottingham (or any other Origins counter throughout the country) and enjoy a mini-facial and skin consultation absolutely free! Staff don't pressure you into purchasing the products (like so many other brands) because they think the products can sell themselves!
I cannot wait to try some more of their products, I feel like it could become a new favourite brand of mine! Watch this space for a review very soon!

    I adore Origins but didn't know that I could get a free mini facial. I might try this next time I'm in the city. Now following your lovely blog.
