Product Review: Origins High Potency Night-a-Mins
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.
Night creams weren't something I ever really thought seriously about until about three years ago when I decided to think about my skincare as an investment. I discovered Origins' High Potency Night-a-Mins during an Origins event with Influenster. I was sent a small sample but I loved it so much, I bought the full-sized version of it at the Origins event. Despite my initial exposure to this night cream being from a free PR package, I can confidently assure you that all of my opinions are my own honest ones - I bought the full-sized version of it with my own money after all!
This is kind of new but I'm going to start listing ingredients of the products I review as it's kind of important and very relevant, especially when it comes to skincare.

What it claims to do
From the Origins website: "Put dullness to rest. Our famous night cream is fortified with time-released resurfacers plus Vitamins C, E and H, minerals and moisture-rich replenishers. While relaxing aromas lull you to sleep, skin sloughs away dry, dead layers. Deletes dullness overnight so you wake up radiant and refreshed. Recommended for dry and normal skin."

The Origins High Potency Night-a-Mins comes in a round tub with a twist top. I personally like this kind of packaging the best because what I hate more than anything is waste. Unlike with squeezable tubes, you can ensure that all of the product is used. The tub itself is a dark brown color with clean labeling. I'm told that the High Potency Nigth-a-Mins used to come in a glass tub instead of this plastic one but I actually think that is an improvement - glass is heavy and I am clumsy. For sure I would have dropped that and break it. 5/5
"High Potency" is a very accurate term for this product. The stuff applies like a very thick, heavy cream but doesn't feel thick or heavy once it's on my skin. It sinks into my face like a dream and keeps my skin hydrated all night! I apply it to my face and my neck at night after I wash my face. It smells like nothing I've ever come across before but it's not a bad thing - sort of an orange peel and flower combo. I'm pretty sensitive when it comes to scents but this one doesn't bother me at all and Brian says he likes the smell of it so that's a plus. This has never broken me out, nor clogged my pores in the two years I've used this. I have very dry skin and the High Potency Night-a-Mins even helped with my eczema! 5/5
The Origins High Potency Night-a-Mins retails for $44 at most retailers. I bought mine at an Origins event with a 15% coupon but as I'm starting to run out, I would still buy this at full retail price. I personally think it's worth it because of how it's changed my skin. This product is in the mid-range, price-wise, when it comes to high-end night cream products. I realize that it's not in everyone's price range but honestly, I've tried less expensive night creams and more expensive ones too. This one fits the bill for me and I think that the price fits how well it works. 4/5
