I am a HUGE fan of the pink stuff and love when Boots launch the gigantic Soap & Glory sets every December. Now I don't know about you but up until recently I wasn't great at maintaining the hands and feet. Sure they got scrubbed with a mitt along with everything else, but other than that, zilch. Seeing as our hands can give away our age as we get older, and with it nearly being sandal weather, I thought it was time I added these products to the regime.
These two products smell ah-mazing, as all S & G products usually do. The hand mask is meant to be applied each night and there is a pair of gloves that come with, but I felt ridiculous with these on in bed.They really do work though, however I tend to use these once a week while watching Netflix. I apply the mask every night before I hit the hay and I have to say the difference is fantastic. My skin is so buttery soft and brighter in general.
Now onto the feet, which I must admit, I'm not so religious when applying. The cream is a very light blue/green and doesn't smell as good as the hand mask, but again it does a fantastic job. I tend to pop this on watching t.v and put a pair of fluffy socks on and ta-da, super soft, smooth amazing feet.
These guys are available in boots and with them nearly always 3 for 2, what's not to love?

I have always suffered with spots from small zits to the big deep cystic throbbing bad boys. In recent years I have kinda got them under control but due to daily stresses, hormones, partying and the occasional pig out, I still have to deal with bad skin. I eat pretty healthy, get my 2 litres of water everyday and have a regimental skin regime, but alas, the skin refuses to play ball.
Let's just say I have tried everything from antibiotics,Retin A cream and just about every other spot removing gimmicky product going.
And yet I caved and bought another one.
Step up the Origins Super Spot Remover. It has super in the title so c'mon I had to try it, but unfortunately, I don't like it. It pains me to say this as it's not the cheapest product and the bottle is tinchy! I have tried this out for a good few weeks and while it does take down the spot somewhat, I really don't see the big deal about this even though some people swear by it. It tingles at first which usually means it's doing the job, but after applying before I went to bed, the next morning nothing drastic had changed. Maybe I expect miracles?
It does say super in the title..
So would I recommend this? Yes... and no. Yes if you have pretty good skin and the odd small spot, it will do the trick. However, if like me your spots are a little larger than a normal zit and you suffer with the red pigmentation marks left after the spot has gone.. this won't do that much.
At €18.50 this little guy is pretty darn expensive, and without the super power it promised.
