Happy Sunday loves! What a gorgeous Sunday it has been, it’s finally feeling like spring outside! Today on the blog I’m sharing my review of some great samples Origins sent me in the mail! I love them all. I feel like I haven’t beauty posted in a while so I’m excited for this post, what great timing!!
First off, how cute is the note they wrote me?!?!
Here’s what they sent me!
A Perfect World SPF40 Age-Defense Moisturizer with White Tea Broad Spectrum SPF40
So this one is my favorite that they sent me. This moisturizer is LIFE CHANGING. First off, any moisturizer that contains SPF is already a winner in my book. I only use moisturizers on my face that contain SPF and are oil FREE. But by far this Origins moisturizer has just moved to the top of my list. The texture is smooth and feels so good and hydrating when I’m applying it to my face. I literally look forward to it! It’s so refreshing and leaves your skin smooth and brightened!
Side note, completely sold on the ingredients. The main, silver tip white tea is said to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, eliminate sun damage and improve the texture and firmness of your skin. Honestly, this moisturizer does all of that. And hey, it’s never to early to fight aging skin am I right!?
Checks and Balances frothy face wash
Love this face wash. This cleanser is easy to use. It goes on creamy and once lathered into the skin, then comes the frothy part. It feels so good and cleansing on the skin. It’s not harsh or drying. I struggle with dry skin on my face, especially above my eye lids so I stay clear of any cleansers containing harsh ingredients. Which is why I love Origins! The formulas behind all Origins products are organic, natural and plant-based. I’m coming to realize anything from nature is kinder too your skin. Which brings me back to this face wash, the main ingredient, Tourmaline ( a semi precious stone) is believed to be vitalizing to the skin, fights age and makes for the appearance of more youthful looking skin. Too sum up, this cleanser is like you’re washing your face with skin benefiting vitamins in a liquid form..WIN!
Using this face wash accompanied by the white tea moisturizer afterwards is TRANSFORMING. Within the first use of both together, I already noticed a difference. My skin felt smooth, even and hydrated. I love my skin and love Origins for making me love my skin. I swear, it’s an enjoyable and refreshing experience, I look forward to washing and moisturizng my face thanks to Origins.
High-Potency Night-A-Mins mineral enriched renewal cream
Obviously I apply this at night and by morning my skin is beyond moisturized, as if someone sat and moisturized my face while I slept the entire night. It smells amazing. Feels lightweight and calming on the skin. It’s a deep moisturizer. Best part, the main ingredient in this one is ORANGE. I love anything citrus, there’s just something so energizing and boosting about citrus. The smell alone is boosting. Oranges are high in antioxidants that help brighten the skin. Even drinking enough orange juice can help brighten your skin over time.
GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff
So this eye cream is an Origins best seller and I can see why. Active ingredient, COFFEE. That’s right, coffee! Who knew?! But I’ll get back to that in a minute. I struggle with dark circles and puffy eyes so I was so excited when I saw this product in my package. It’s just what I was looking for! I’ve been applying every night right before bed. I leave it right on my night stand. When I’m rubbing it in under my eyes I feel a slight tingle/burn sensation…but it feels good. It feels like its working and sinking right into my skin. I wake up and my eyes and under eyes look BRIGHT. To the point where I don’t even feel the need to put on my under eye concealer. I’m a huge fan of the Origins GinZing products. I also have the GinZing energy boosting treatment mist, which I apply every morning and it has been my go to every morning instead of washing my face, which I save for at night now.
So back to the god of all gods the main ingredient, coffee. Coffee beans contain caffeic acid, which boosts collagen production. It is said even a simple cup of coffee can perk up your morning face. Who knew coffee was so good for your skin?! There’s even coffee masks you can make right at home!
Have a happy Sunday darlings and thank you Origins for the amazing products!
