Origins: Free Full-Size Moisturiser!

Tomorrow is Trade-In day at Origins! They have 5,000 full-size moisturisers up for grabs – you just need to take in an empty skincare product (from any brand!) and they’ll swap you!

There are two moisturisers available, the Age-Erasing Mimosa (worth £36) and the Perfect World with White Tea, (worth £32). Get down to your Origins counter early, though – I can imagine that these moisturisers will be snapped up in no time at all!

    Great offer but I won’t be near an Origins counter tomorrow either.

    I use origins a lot, I love the smell and have never been disappointed by any purchase.

    From experience I find them to be very generous with their samples, even when I’m only buying one item they’ll always ask if you want to try something else – wish some of the other counters would take note.

    I got this in my daily email from you this morning. :-( (sad frowny face) as I was right by origins as well.

    Thank you for posting this Ruth. I love Origins moisturizer and never knew that they did this. I’ve been told that it’s an annual thing. Thanks to you, hubby and I marched ourselves down to Origins this weekend and took advantage of the offer. Literally, the line to get into Origins looped around the store. People were trying to collect multiple tubes, etc. It is amazing how crazed some people get when they hear the word “free”.

      @Jewels argh!! Did you get one?! xx

      • April 25, 2012 / 12:56 am

        We did :-) We both picked the “A perfect world SPF 25” which is the moisturizer that my husband was already using regularly. I’m saving mine for summer. It is the highest SPF face product currently in my collection :-)
