[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] I’m going to say the C word because Origins has a brilliant offer that, if you can turn your mind to Christmas (yes, that C word), is an excellent pre-panic insurance. Money is going to be tighter for everyone this year I feel, and if you buy beauty treats for friends and family, the offers are starting so it’s a good idea to get ahead of your list so maybe the pinch won’t be quite so hard. I’ve already received my first beauty advent calendar with more on the way and while it’s better than Christmas In July which seems to have died an industry death (suddenly got a memory of either Lucy or Max spilling a blackberry smoothie on a white Estee Lauder carpet because CIJ was always right in the middle of school holidays….eek) I do know it’s premature.

Origins Offer

The main offer is this free gift worth £78 with a spend of £45, but more than that, there’s currently 20% off site-wide. In the gift bag, there are six stocking filler worthy products – Checks & Balances Face Wash 30ml, Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask 30ml (both excellent man/boy products), Drink Up Intensive Mask 30ml, Plantscription Serum 15ml, Ginzing Into The Glow Brightening Serum 15ml and Oil Free Energy Boosting Gel Moisturiser. I think it’s a pretty good offer.

Origins Offer

There are a few lovely sets already – Vitamin C and Caffeine Glow Getters, £50 HERE, or the small but cute Glow Booster set for £18 HERE. Origins used to do lots of body care – I thought it was a big strength of the brand to be honest but now they’ve honed it right down to the Ginger range for body and I think that’s where I’d head because it’s really so lovely – Ginger Souffle Whipped Body Cream HERE is an absolute treat. The obvious thing is that there is no Christmas theming but gosh, I think we are up to bunging a shiny bow on anything and making it festive. I’m away over the weekend so there won’t be a Monday post.
