Guys! We finally settled in our new home in Washington. Well, not 100% yet — but it definitely feels like home now! The first week we were here, my skin decided to freak out on me like never before. It became so dry and I started breaking out, which isn’t an easy combo to fix. I’m happy to report my skin is on the mend, thanks to a few Origins products — so I had to tell you about them.
This isn’t the first time I’ve fallen in love with products from Origins. I actually started using products from the line when I was about 19, but it’s been about 15 years since I’ve purchased some Origins for myself. That’s too long! It’s been nice rediscovering their products this time around — I feel like I can really appreciate them. (I honestly forgot what I was missing.) Here are four items from the brand that I highly recommend!
It’s spearmint-fresh, and feels so great on my skin. Just the smallest pea size amount froths into a nice lather that’s very sensorial. I actually look forward to cleansing in the shower with this in the morning! When my skin was having its little freak-out session, I found this to actually feel pretty gentle, but it still delivered a thorough clean feeling that wasn’t tight or dry. The product is best for normal, dry, and oily skin — and I’m a believer because I have combo skin. Not only did it not strip my dry skin, but it also tackled my problem areas in my T-zone. I will definitely purchase the full size of this once my generous 1.7 ounce tube is empty — because this is an enjoyable cleanser to rotate in my skincare arsenal. It contains some interesting ingredients; tourmaline, lavender, spearmint, and bergamot. Can you tell I’m a fan? $22 for 5 ounces, origins.com [Read more…]
