Review: Origins Make A Difference Skin Rejuvenating Treatment

I actually received this Origins Make A Difference Skin Rejuvenating Treatment in a gift set quite a while ago, and recently found it during a mass cosmetic sort-out. It's been neglected due to its somewhat ambiguous name  - "Skin Rejuvenating Treatment"? What does it do!? - so I had a look on the Origins website and started using it. And let me tell you, I am SO glad I did!


My skin is pretty much as oily as skin can be, but I also suffer from dry patches (sometimes in the same places) which are so bad my skin cracks and flakes - ouch! I need a good moisturiser but anything heavy or rich tends to break me out and make my oily skin worse. I started applying this last thing at night after removing my make-up, and I could see the difference within a couple of days! Normally when I wake up my skin is at its oiliest but after using this, it's still soft, smooth, and relatively matte. This in and of itself is something of a miracle for me! It's done a fantastic job of rehydrating my nasty, sore dry patches and actually evening out my oilyness, but hasn't caused me to break out at all! I am seriously so impressed. The Origins website suggests following with a moisturiser but for me, that's totally unnecessary. If you have a drier skin then you may need to but equally, there are probably products more suitable for you than this - it is aimed at Oily/Combination skin types.




I also wear this under my make-up and find that it gives a lovely base for foundation to go on over. This may just be wishful thinking, but I do think my make-up lasts a bit longer when I've used this first, as well! If it contained SPF this would be perfect. The Make A Difference Skin Rejuvenating Treatment retails at £32 for 50ml, which definitely puts it at the more expensive end of the skincare spectrum for me. However, you don't need very much so it should last a while, and thankfully I have a back-up in stock ;D
What's your favourite Origins product?
