A little over a year ago, I joined Influenster, a destination website for product discovery and reviews. I try and use makeup. I subscribe to beauty boxes, check out new products in stores and online and order products because they are new. I joined Influenster in order to share my experiences on the items I’ve tried and used. I started out eager and somehow, life got in the way of me actually submitting reviews on a regular basis, just like it did with keeping up with this blog.
I received a box of 5 fantastic Origins samples to discover that I’m going to tell you about today. In addition, I was supposed to attend an in-store facial event, but due to schedule conflicts, I could not attend. I did, however, visit an Origins location on my own time to see for myself how exciting this brand continues to be.
Let’s start with the review:
I started with Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash. I loved the light minty scent. The product is frothy but not harsh. My skin was soft and smooth, not sticky to touch and felt clean. The active ingredient is Tourmaline (in powder from is know to be a natural substitute for harsh ingredients in skin cleaning products.).
I love trying new masks! When I use them it forces me to do nothing for about 10 minutes and that alone, reduces stress. Origins Clear Improvement Purifying Charcoal Mask is designed to deep clean pores and help with oil control. I used to have super oily skin when I was younger. It’s become more combination, with an oily T zone, the area where my attention to my pores is a must.
This is a wash off mask and the charcoal color will make your skin look greenish grey until you take it off. Use this mask when you can have quiet time. This mask contains Bamboo Charcoal, White China Clay and Lecithin to help clear your pores, remove toxins and get rid of the impurities in your skin.
I liked that it dries fairly quickly and it’s easy to remove with no residue, leaving your skin feeling comfortable.
Origins Ginzing Eye Cream really does help reduce puffiness and brighten dark circles.. The product is lightweight absorbs quickly and leaves no residue. I love the hint of citrus scent I experienced when applying Origins Ginzing Moisturizer. It leave my skin feeling soft, hydrated and ready for makeup. At night Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins is not heavy or greasy, instead its lightweight and powerful because it gently removes dead skin layers and leaves your skin feeling great in the morning.
In summary I enjoyed this product line and enjoyed this experience.
