'Keep Your Skin In A Perfect World'
Let's talk moisturisers...hands up who owns too many of them? My hand is firmly raised. I apply moisturiser every day, twice a day, and that's because my skin just feels better with some applied. I can openly admit that I own far too much of the stuff with no justification (other than perhaps I'm a beauty blogger) and so rotate my collection regularly to get through them all. One pot from my collection that has really stood out for me lately is A Perfect World Antioxidant Moisturiser by Origins. When I passed the Origins counter last year my moisturiser radar went crazy for their extensive selection and I couldn't resist adding just one more to my collection. A couple of samples and a few trials later and I returned to make my purchase and have been reaching for it ever since. I've even put some into a sample pot for travelling, it must be love.
A Perfect World is a range created to tackle combination and 'ageing skin' as well as skin damage and other niggles. Silver Tip White Tea has been carefully blended into the Perfect World formula to help minimise finer lines, dark spots and loss of firmness whilst protecting it from pollutants and keeping it healthy. The range is extensive, with 11 products for your face and body all aiming to 'keep your skin in a perfect world'. I'm yet to try the bodycare but I am loving the skincare, so its inevitable really.
When it comes to my skin age fighting protection is the last thing on my mind, prevention is better than cure I know but I'm not ready to accept that my skin is ageing just yet...even if it is at the ripe old age of 21. Do not be put off however by the 'best for ageing skin' tagline on the Perfect World skincare range from Origins; I try to remember that my skin is always ageing, heck it's not getting any younger and so anything that can help it on its way as it ages day-by-day I welcome into my routine.
Pleasantly packaged inside a plastic pot with a twist off lid and plastic insert is 50ml of moisturiser. The formulation is refreshing, it's something between a cream and a gel that's light, not at all greasy feeling, and a mere fingertips amount goes a very long way. I'd say it stretches to a full face application. The formula has a noticeable but delicate scent that spans also across the whole Perfect World range, it has a fruity tang but it's rather difficult to pinpoint exact scent, all the while it's pleasant and not overpowering.
You can apply this moisturiser morning and night, I'm happy to apply it on waking and before sleeping because it protects and moisturises my skin during the day and soothes and revives my skin during the night. A Perfect World Moisturiser leaves my skin feeling so revived and replenished, more than any other moisturiser I own, and after application my skins surface immediately improves by touch and sight and my makeup applies effortlessly.
I can't quite fault this moisturiser, it's multi tasking and doesn't trouble my combination skin, it reaches the perfect balance even when my skins not quite feeling in check. From application to finish and then all through the day my skin remains feeling good and looking good with A Perfect World Moisturiser. If you're unsure, request a sample at your local stockist and give it a go for a week.
Origins A Perfect World Moisturiser retails for £33 from Origins online and stockists such as John Lewis, which is where I usually pick my products up from. It's also available with the added benefit of SPF 20 for the same price.
