I have been holding off typing up this review for as long as I can but really all I want to do
is clamber atop many a roof and sing the following products praises loud and clear.
Luckily for you all I can't climb nor can I sing all that well...yay for small miracles 
but if like myself you have oily skin then I urge you to read on!

Origins Make A Difference + Rejuvenating Treatment* £33/50ml - link

"This rejuvenating treatment fortified with Nature's Rose of Jericho Lychee and Watermelon hydra-sustain complex quenches deep to help add moisture to dry, dehydrated skin.
Instantly boosts skin's moisture to help keep it hydrated and rejuvenated all day. Oil-free."

Origins Make A Difference + Rejuvenating Treatment is a light, gel like, oil free moisturiser,
the texture is perfect for oily skin types as it is almost a gel so it isn't heavy but does provide
all the hydration oily/combination skin types require.
On the skin it is cooling and instantly absorbs, does not clog pores nor does it leave behind any residue
rather it leaves the skin feeling hydrated with a natural matte base should you wish to apply make-up on top.
At the moment I'm using this as a day cream but come the warm summer months I will use it both
day and night.

This is the one product that I have been crediting for my now less than oily skin.
Pretty much as soon as I began using this my skin has become more balanced,
with less oil and dare I say it blemish free!
Since trailing this treatment my skin which typically breaks out every other week with a cluster of blemishes
has behaved and only sprouted up one teeny tiny spot which is incredible given my skin type.
Personally I feel the lack of oil is why I have been blemish free but either way I am one happy lady.

Origins GinZing £21/15ml* - link

"Late night? Long flight? Look tired all the time? Prepare to become one of the perky people! 
Nature's clinically-proven morning-after eye cream helps to reduce the look of dark circles. Unsightly bags and puffiness seem less visible. And Origins proprietary complex of Caffeine from Coffee bean, Panax Ginseng, Magnolia Extract and natural optic brighteners rapidly wakes up, refreshes and restores radiance to tired eyes. Opthalmologist tested. Good for all skin types and all ages."

In my opinion Origins is the brand to investigate if you suffer from puffy eyes and/or dark circles
as they offer a great range of solutions that are gentle yet very effective.
Luckily my eyes are no longer puffy now the pollen count is much lower than the summer months but I do
tend to collect dark circles much like a stamp collector collects...erm stamps?

Sure you can mask dark circles with concealer and foundation but I'm sure most would like to solve the problem at the root rather than relying on countless make-up products?
Well Origins GinZing is one of the few eye creams I have used that not only lightly moisturises the delicate 
eye area but also helps to reduce dark circles.
You do of course have to stick with the product to reap the benefits but after two weeks of use I can
say that my dark circles are reduced dramatically and much easier to disguise should I want to.
Other than that it is a great all round eye cream that brightens and moisturises the skin.
