Redness-relief Skincare (Origins and No7)

Price - No7 is £18 for 30ml or £13 with one of those vouchers
          - Origins is £42 for 30ml eeek!

Smell - No7 being very subtle and pretty neutral
           -Origins smells kindof musky-ish but natural - may not be so popular

Texture - Origins is more slippery? but both similar and pleasant :)

Packaging - No7 is very err No7, simple and practical
                  - Origins is pretty simple and organic like - both with pump which is good

Performance - No7, a "cult product" but did nothing for me :S  The reviews are wonderful and some users even say that Calm Skin changed their lives!  I was definitely disappointed in this but having said that i have no visible broken capillaries so may work better for that.  Did leave my skin soft though and was definitely comfortable.
                      - Origins didn't do anything spectacular for me either :(  No visible redness relief but it definitely was calming and soothing.  Initially i used it every night before bed, same as No7, but now it's just a once a week thing after a hard day's play work. 

Will i be purchasing either of these again? No.  I'll definitely use them up or maybe test them on my mum and see if theirs any significant improvements which there may well be as i think these products may be aimed at older chicks so who knows...

Thanks for reading if you survived all this :)
