This skincare company is changing my skin by the day. Origins is a sustainable, eco-friendly skincare and makeup brand that uses natural ingredients to create amazing products for users. The products are formulated without parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, mineral oil, petrolatum, paraffin, DEA, polyethylene beads or animal ingredients, making sure to keep the user’s skin free of chemicals and toxins. I started using Origins products around six months ago, and I have seen such a huge change in my skin. The best part is, for such quality products, the prices are not outrageous compared to other skincare brands that charge an arm and a leg. I encourage everyone to check out their products to see if they are right for you.
For starters, I cannot even tell you how many cleansers that Origins produces, because there are so many and each are unique in their own way. They have an Antioxidant Cleanser With White Tea, a Deep Pore Cleanser With Saw Palmetto & Mint and, my personal favorite, the Frothy Face Wash. This face wash comes in a 5 fl. oz tube for $23, and I have had mine since the first time I tried it in April. I wash my face twice a day, and while I am close to the end, I am still on my very first tube. This stuff lasts forever because you only need a dab of it to cleanse your entire face. I always feel fresh and clean after using this cleanser.
Origins also has a wide selection of moisturizers. While moisturizers are typically more expensive than cleansers, Origins offers a wide variety of product with different prices, so you can spend as much or little as you want. For example, the Oil-Free Moisture Lotion With Saw Palmetto & Mint is $30 while something like the Mega-Bright Skin Illuminating Moisturizer sells for $56. My personal favorite is the Matte Moisturizer With Willowherb, $35, which is light and smells amazing.
Another aspect of skincare that many people choose to opt out of is toner. However, toner should be a part of your routine as it balances your skin and shrinks pores. Origins has a great selection of toners. The Energy-Boosting Treatment Lotion Mist is a great option that leaves the face feeling very fresh. The great thing about this product is that it not only utilizes coffee beans and ginzing to refresh the skin, but also comes in a large bottle that will take forever to run out! They also have a classic Balancing Tonic, which uses spearmint and lavender to balance skin. Both products cost $23, so not breaking the bank compared to other products on the market, and, for the length of time they last, this is a great deal.
Origins also has a line of masks, which are my favorite product. I use masks one to three times a week, because I feel as though they are the ultimate way to wind down and treat yourself. Origins masks are a must-try. Now, masks can get expensive for a “non-essential” part of the skincare routine, but if you do find yourself ready to splurge on a mask, I would definitely recommend Origins’. My favorite Origins mask is the Charcoal Honey Mask To Purify & Nourish, $34, which is used for oil control and to get rid of stubborn acne. The mix of charcoal and honey is an absolute dream team, and I feel the benefits to my skin immediately. My two other recommendations would be the Active Charcoal Mask To Clear Pores, $17, and the Retexturizing Mask With Rose Clay, $28.
Origins also has eye care products, serums and face oils, but I have not tried those as of yet. I highly recommend giving this brand a go, and the Origins website details what products are right for all different types of skin. So, whether you are dry, oily, combination, acne-prone, or any other skin type, they have something for you. Oh, and they also have make up!
