origins never a dull moment scrub

Origins Never A Dull Moment Facial Scrub: £24*

Origins has to be my favourite skincare brand at the moment. I don't know what it is but I just seem to be pulled in every time I pass a counter in a beauty hall - I love the packaging and the whole feel of the brand. I've been using this facial scrub for about a month now when I have a 'deep cleansing session' around once a week, usually after a long day when I've been travelling (or the morning after the night before!) and my face has been made up for longer than usual. I'll remove my makeup with a micellar solution such as the Bioderma one, then again with a hot cloth cleanser - using the Liz Earle limited edition rose & lavender one at the moment - and then this either with my fingers or with my Clarisonic Mia, although with the latter it does get rather messy. The scent is amazing - I know the ingredients are papaya but it definitely smells like blackcurrant! The consistency is more like a thick sludge than a gritty scrub, which is a bit strange but it brightens the skin without feeling like you've scratched it off. I love!

Have you ever used this scrub or other Origins products? Do you prefer gentle exfoliators compared to harsh ones?

  1. Great review! I would love to try this because I love origins just as much as you do :) Their products are amazing, I just fell in love with their 'drink up intensive mask'. Wrote a review on the 'Ginzing' eye cream in case someone's interested :) It's a goood one! X

  2. I'm yet to try Origins products but they seem to be a favourite by many and my skin could definitely do with perking up!
    I prefer gentle exfoliators. In the past I've used 'Ocean Salt' facial scrub from Lush and omg. I felt like my face was going to drop off, it was so harsh. I now use Soap & Glory's 'Face Soap and Clarity' it has beads in so works well as a soft exfoliator and a cleanser :)

  3. I really want to try some origins products, but I am yet to find any near me and am always dubious about buying skincare or makeup online xx

  4. Origins products always look so good:)

  5. this scrub sounds amazing ! x

  6. i love the look of all the products!! slightly overpriced though!

  7. I absolutely love this scrub - it smells SO good! Origins is just great all around. xx

  8. I need to give this a go, I guess it's must smell really nice. xo

  9. Does the name mean that it's supposed to brighten your skin as well? If so, do you think it's delivered on that front? I've never tried any Origins products before but I've only heard great things, so I'm sure to try it out soon :)

    1. Yeah I wrote near the end of the review that it does brighten the skin as it gets rid of sluggish dead skin cells :)

  10. to pricey for me :(


  11. I love Origins. I prefer a scrub that's quite abrasive so I feel like it's really removing the dead skin.

  12. Ooh this looks so interesting! I want to try it, I hate exfoliators that feel super scratchy!


  13. It looks nice. I actually haven't used any item from Origins yet but have been interested in it for a long time! It smells good and does its job? I want it too!

  14. I love fruity face scrubs! You should definitely try the Body Shop Vit C Microdermabrasion... It's great for brightening the skin! xx

  15. i love scrubs feels so good after a facial scrub!

  16. Will this help with spots? Or is there a better scrub for spots?
