Am being tempted by an offer for free full-size serum if spending over £65 (so would need to get 2 products). Can anyone recommend Origins day cream, eye cream, serum etc. Is it worth the splurge? Early 40s, good skin but some hardcore fine lines that need addressing!
Got the serum for christmas, within a week my skin looked burnt and i had spots all over - never ever had spots like this and im 33!! But if you must try it id say ask for a sample first as reading the reviews it doesnt agree with everyone. If you do end up buying it its £42 from the make up shop at mcarthur glen outlets if you live near to one, rather than the £65.
I use the balance and checks cleanser but to be honest since I switched to origins last year - and this is only my opinion - its made my skin loot a lot older.
I also think there is better out there, try the shisedo serum, its cheaper than the origins and lots better.
Thank you everyone, really useful advice. I had used the eye cream a while back (believed the sales garb that it was 'botox in a bottle' ) but wasn't terribly impressed. Think I'll leave it and possibly try Clarins which my friend raves about. Main problems is crow's feet - not sure there's a product out there that can really improve these (will maybe start another thread!).
I love Origins, about two thirds of my skincare is from there... and people spontaneously comment on how good my skin looks (not often, but sometimes!). Currently using Checks and Balances cleanser, Perfect World serum and day cream, Modern Friction scrub, Night A mins night cream... More importantly, where is this offer so I can use it, pretty please ?
Code is SERUM2 and needs to be used on the origins website. You also get free next day delivery. Another option is to print out the e-mail and take into the store - feel free to message me with your e-mail addy if you'd like me to forward. May have a good look through the origins range, website q.good. I had dc6 4 mths ago and am back at work end of March so really need to get my complexion glowing and awake-looking
