Origins – Brighter By Nature Peel Pads

I am a big believer in exfoliating your skin regularly in order to keep it smooth and glowing, so when I read about these Brighter By Nature Peel Pads from Origins I just had to try them. I love the Origins brand, their products contain no parabens, phthalates, paraffin or animal ingredients and are based on natural essential oils and plant-based ingredients. Their packaging is nice and simple too, with no gimmicks.
This little Brighter By Nature tub contains 40 rounds exfoliating pads – they look a little bit like nail varnish remover pads at first glance. Each pad is textured and soaked in an exfoliating liquid that contains fruit acids which help exfoliate and break down dead skin cells – beware though, they do smell rather strong and potent and can make your eyes water a bit! Simply rub one pad all over the face in little circular movements, concentrating on any areas of skin discolouration or rough skin. Once you have covered half of the face you can turn the pad over and use the other side. They do feel a little bit like fine sandpaper on the face, and you can really feel them working and sloughing off the dead skin – in my opinion they are DIY microdermabrasion (and cheaper!).
They are oil-free and suitable for all skin types, apart from sensitive skin as the fruit acids are so strong, and keep them away from your eyes if you have sensitive eyes too. Origins recommend using them twice a week, but I would suggest using them once a week and alternating with a regular wash-off exfoliator. I like to rinse my face with water after use to remove any of the strong product that is left behind on my skin.
Origins Brighter By Nature Peel Pads are quick and easy to use, plus they are perfect for using on-the-go, just toss the tub into your overnight bag and off you go. They specifically help to reduce uneven skintone and skin discolouration too, I have some dark pigment skin patches underneath my eyes and on my temples, and using a Peel Pad once a week has certainly helped to fade them a bit. I would definitely recommend Origins Brighter By Nature Peel Pads and think they are well worth the money.
Origins Brighter By Nature Peel Pads are priced at £31 for a tub of 40 pads (that’s 78p per pad). That’s not cheap, but in my opinion they are worth the money. Available from Origins, keep an eye on the website as Origins often have offers where you receive free samples or free delivery.
