Origins Make A Difference Plus+



Origins Make A Difference Plus+ Rejuvenating Treatment: £33*
Origins Make A Difference Plus+ Rejuvenating Moisturiser: £33*
Origins Make A Difference Plus+ Ultra-Rich Cream: £33*

My skin feels thirstier than ever and needs all the help it can get at the moment. Origins is a brand I always turn to when I'm looking for some new goodies to treat my skin and for a while now I've been trying out the new range, Make A Difference Plus+. A reformulated range (formerly known as the same, but without the 'plus'), now including an ultra-rich cream to go with the other two to complete the range and fill the whole of the skin spectrum. My skin type seems to switch as and when it chooses so I've been trialling each of the moisturisers and seeing how they fare.

Fortified with Rose of Jericho, lychee and watermelon hydra-sustain complex, each of the Make A Difference Plus+ pots are designed to quench the thirst of dehydrated skin. Boasting the ability to both increase moisture levels by a whopping 75%, and improve moisture retention for a full 24 hours. If that's not impressive then I don't know what is. As I've been lucky enough to see how each of the products suit my skin, my face seems to have taken a shine to the routine of first using the treatment (targeted to oilier skins as it feels like a gel-cream hybrid), followed by a helping of the moisturiser for more normal skin types. The results is instantly comforted, plumped-up skin; both products sink in beautifully and provide incredible levels of hydration. Using these products is the favourite part of my morning (sometimes at night too - these are designed to be used both AM and PM - but I tend to use heavier stuff) routine actually, I love them that much! The smell is also divine, I can't quite describe it but I want to say it reminds me of a mojito. Zingy, fresh and puts me in a great mood when I use it.

The ultra-rich cream is effective but probably my least favourite out of the three as it is very thick and I only really use it at night or in places where I have severe dryness/dehydration. Obviously it's not catered to my skin type completely so it's more my fault than that of the product. I also find the smell isn't as strong which kind of takes out the enjoyment of using it for me. Simple minds.. That said though, it would definitely be a product I'd recommend to anyone in need of extreme hydration.

I'm not super pleased that I love these tubs of goodness so much as they're a gulp-worthy £33 a pop. Then again I truly do think they are worth every penny - in fact, I had the moisturiser in the older formula before the range was re-released so I'd be more than happy to repurchase in future! Have you tried the Make A Difference Plus+ range?

  3. The moisturiser sounds great! I'm obsessed with scrubs and the Origins "Never a dull moment' facial scrub is right at the top of my wishlist at the mo. Will add the moisturiser to my list now too!

  9. I really like the Origins skincare products that I've tried - their masks are my favourites. I'm yet to find the perfect moisturiser, although I'm really loving the ARK age prepare one but the Ultra Rich cream sounds like it would be suited well to me. Really liked this post.

  10. Can't wait to try this range, actually have Make A Difference™ Plus+ Rejuvenating Moisturizer ordered and on the way in the mail (well with Yodel.. at least I hope its still with them - currently says 'No Parcel But Data' after being put out for delivery so not looking good at all!) - sorry mini rant.

    But can't wait for when it does eventually get here!

    Would you say the Moisturizer version is still very hydrating? I have quite dry skin, but I wanted a moisturizer I could use under my make-up that was light but still very hydrating, and I knew the Ultra-Rich version might just be too much for using under my foundation. Hope I've made the right choice.

    Great review x

  11. This is a great post! I was wondering whether i should spend another... £33 on the rejuvenating moisturiser as i need a thinner cream that sinks in quickly in the morning before i apply make-up a few minutes later. I have dry/combination skin and i have the ulra-rich cream and use it most nights as by the morning it has completely sinked in and leaves my skin hydrated. i also have ezema, and get severe dry patches on my brow bone and my forehead sometimes, this is a very good product forpreventing everyday dryness so i rarely need to use prescripted creams which are not good for regular use, thankyou for this post emma!
