Origins - Earth Day

On Saturday 21st April Origins were running a in-store promotion entitled - Visit Origins to Recycle the Earth.  This was to honour Earth Day which this year was on 22nd April. 

Earth Day is a campaign where the global community comes together to take steps towards protecting and preserving the Earth.  You can read all about Earth Day on their website - its a very interesting read.

For the Origins promotion I had to take in an empty cosmetic container/tube/pot etc and in return you got a good sample size (50ml) in return.

I got to my local Boots just before 9am and there was already a little queue at the Origins counter!

I filled in a card with some personal details and what kind of skincare I was looking for, popped my empty tub of Olay night cream in the recycling bin and the lovely lady gave me my sample of A Perfect World moisturizer.

This is what it says on the Origins website:

This lightweight moisturiser contains world-famous Silver Tip White Tea, Vitamins C and E plus French Maritime Pine and UVA / UVB sunscreens.
Designed for everyday use, this oil-free moisturiser builds an invisible bubble of protection around skin to help minimise the appearance of damage including lines, wrinkles and age spots.
Helps delay the appearance of premature signs of aging. So you can enjoy your youth. Today and tomorrow.
Sunscreens including Octisalate, Avobenzone and Octocrylene provide esstential broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection.

Oh just realised that 50ml is full sized! It retails at £32.00 on their website!

This is a nice lightweight moisturiser and will be perfect for the daytime.

She also booked me in for a free facial so I'll be going back on 4th May for a bit of pampering.

Did you manage to pick up a free Origins moisturiser?


  1. oh you got one! Well done for going early!! I went to the store at about 11 and they were all sold out!! They lady said that when they opened at 9am there was already a long queue and by 9.20 they had sold out! Im going early next year lol!

    1. I went to a Lush workshop at 9.30 so I went earlier and popped to Boots first - there was quite a queue behind me when I left and 5 people in front of me, the assistant said she didn't have many samples left as they only get sent a limited amount.
      Good luck for next year! x

  2. Really wanted to go and get one but I was working!

    Lola ..x

  3. I'm so jealous the nearest origins counter to me was quite far so there was no way (without getting stupidly early) that i could have got one ...well done! I hope its lovely :)

    1. I'm so lucky the Origins counter is a new addition to the Boots I went to, although if I wasn't going to the Lush workshop I don't know if I would have got up so early! ;)
