Origins Never a Dull Moment cleanser

My new holy grail cleanser!

With a wedding next year I want my skin to look its very very best, and have noticed over the past few weeks that my face seems to be getting drier and drier (to the point where my cheeks are flaking off, not sexy!), as well as breaking out in spots!

Now I think it might have something to do with the stressiness of my last year of Uni, but I figured it was a good excuse to start a better skincare routine!

I keep hearing Origins' name mentioned on a few different blogs and decided to have a look at their website. They had some pretty good deals on, where if you spent over a certain amount you got free samples (woops!).
I know that everyone seems to have their favourite cleanser (usually Liz Earle or Emma Hardy!), but I've just not found one yet that I absolutely love, and can get excited about (yes, I want to get excited about a cleanser!).

Until now...

My naughty purchases!
I picked out the 'Never a Dull Moment' cleanser, which you can get here for £17, a little pricey, but this seems to be the norm with nice cleansers at the moment!

The first thing I noticed when using this is the smell, THE SMELL! It's really fruity, and smells just like Spring, which I find helps to wake me up a little in the mornings. I think its the Papaya extract coming through, but either way, it's yummy!

When I started to rub this in it foams into a lovely rich, creamy consistency, which I didn't really expect, but really liked. It honestly feels like you are doing your skin some good as you use it!

I've often found that I need to double cleanse to get off the last remnants of my make-up (I'm looking at you They're Real mascara!), but this melted my eye make-up away without having to pull and tough the area.

All in all I found it a lovely cleanser to use and think I'll be sticking with this for the moment! I can't say whether it has brightened my skin as yet, but I'll let you know if I notice a difference. After trying a few of their products I'm so impressed with Origins, and would fully recommend them if you suffer with sensitive skin like I do. Rather worringly I can see that I might be spending a few more pennies on their website in the future!

Do any of you have any good recommendations?
