Origins A Perfect World Antioxidant Moisturiser

Origins A Perfect World Antioxidant Moisturiser

The first time I tried Origins (probably more than 10 years ago now, eek!), it turned out to be a pretty expensive mistake.  Having little awareness of my skin type and how to look after it, I let my much younger self be talked into buying a number of things that did absolutely nothing for me, by a sales assistant who probably didn't care.

Since then however, my knowledge and confidence have happily increased, I've gone back to Origins a number of times (had much better experiences with sales assistants too) and whilst I haven't had much opportunity to try many products from the brand, I do have one or two firm favourites, including the 'A Perfect World Antioxidant Moisturiser'.

This moisturiser first became a regular part of my skincare regime a few years back, I used it religiously but for some reason or other I moved onto other products and forgot about this for a little while.  It was only last year that I rediscovered it - I got a free 50ml tube in the Origins trade-in on Earth Day - and boy am I glad I did!

The 'A Perfect World Antioxidant Moisturiser' is part of Origins 'age fighting' range, it's free of nast preservatives and as you might expect, contains a number of antioxidant, firming and brightening ingredients, including white tea, Vitamin C and Murumuru butter.

The cream is definitely on the thicker side and could be a little heavy for some, but on my slightly dehydrated skin a little goes along way and it sinks in beautifully.  It does leave a slight residue but as I use this as a night cream I really don't mind, I actually find that it makes my skin feel that much more comfortable, and still soft and supple when I wake up in the morning.

Possibly one of my favourite things about the moisturiser, and something that divides many reviewers, is the scent.  A lot of people find it overpowering, but the blend of fresh citrus and herbs is somehow calming to me and so perfect to use at the end of a long day.  I'm also really attracted by the soothing green shade of the glass jar the product is packaged in.  I have repurchased this twice since the free tube I received and have no doubt I'll be repurchasing again when I run out.

Origins A Perfect World Antioxidant Moisturiser is £33 for 50ml and is available here.  A version with SPF 25 is also available.

  1. My favourite Origins product would probably be the Overnight Facemask. My mind's gone blank to what it's called! Duh. I also love their Super Spot Remover, which gets rid of my blemishes quicker than any other!!

    1. I think I know the one you mean - the Drink Up one? I'd really like to try it myself. I have the Super Spot Remover too, my fiance and I both have it and use it regularly.

      I'm following your blog too :-)
