Origins A Perfect World BB SPF Age-defense tinted moisturiser with with tea - review

I've recently been getting my first taste of Origins products, and for me there's no better place to start than with a BB cream as they're one of my favourite beauty products.  I've tried so many BB creams now that I should really put together a comparison post - I think I'll do that soon.  Anyway, I've been trying out the Origins A perfect world BB SPF 15 Age-defense tinted moisturiser with white tea, and I rather like it.


The Origins product comes in a much wider range of shades than most BB creams I've tried - 6 in fact.  I went for the second shade which is 02 light/medium and it's just right for my ever so slightly olive skin-tone.  

As a BB cream, it's very much like one of my other favourites - the Garnier BB cream - but it gives a better coverage and it seems to last longer on my skin.  Also, as well as the SPF (because the sun sometimes shines in London apparently) it has some additional skin benefits of being an anti-ageing and antioxidant product.  

Generally, I use BB creams as skin primers under my foundation.  I know it's not the intended use for BB creams, but it works for me as I do like a fuller coverage if I know I'm going to have a long day.  The Origins product works well for this but as it does give a fuller coverage itself, I use less foundation on top and it gives a slightly dewy finish.  

Overall, this is a pricier BB cream than others I've tried, but you can really notice the difference in the quality of the product.  

Origins A Perfect World BB cream costs £27 for 50ml and you can pick it up direct from Origins or at John Lewis.  

Which Origins products have you used and what would you recommend I should try next?

  2. I think I might have a look at this at the counter. Hopefully I will be able to get hold of an sample, as I don't get along with BB creams. x

    1. It's coming - I think I have 7 to put in the post! The really sad thing is I bought another one on Saturday because I felt like it needed to be in the comparison!

  4. Been planning to have this before. I don't know, but something is backing me off to not doing it.
