Unlike most beauty bloggers, I'm not really a skincare junkie. I guess my hoarding of packaging and all other things makes up for it, but ya know what I'm sayin'. While I was ordering a few gifts online from Sephora, I decided to pick up my Beauty Insider gift (proof that I've spent too much money there). I also picked up the Origins Super Spot Remover (which I'll get into later), which was technically free, but it's kind of a long story...
I tried a sample of the Super Spot Remover and I really liked it. Weirdly enough, I've been getting "spots" (hey! I like that word!) in the most random places where I have never gotten them before. What the $%*# is going on with my skin?!?
The Beauty Insider kit came with a Plantscription Anti-aging Serum, Checks and Balances face wash, Ginzing Refreshing Eye Cream, and A Perfect World moisturizer with SPF 25.
This isn't normally a gift I would pick up, but I already have enough makeup (amen!) and I've been wanting to try some things (or tings') from Origins, for I've heard such good things about their brand.
A Perfect World SPF 25
This is supposed to be anti-aging (something which I don't really need, but prevention is good, eh?). I have been using as a day moisturizer and I love it! It is moisturizing, yet sinks into your skin really fast and doesn't leave a oily/shiny residue. This also has white tea in it, hence the smell. I personally hate the smell, but it's something I can deal with.
Super Spot Remover
I'm going to keep this simple: if you have a spot, pop this on it at night, and in the morning, it's gone.
Origins Ginzing Refreshing Eye Cream
I have been wanting to try this for a while, but it's just so bloody expensive!!! I'm not sure if this is doing much for my eyes, but it's really nice to apply and I *imagine* it doing good things.
Checks and Balances Face Wash
Before I begin, let me start by saying: this may be a new "holy grail" product for me. I've been using this with my Clarisonic at night, and I LOVE it! It is so creamy, milky, and foamy. It smells like mint and works beautifully on my combination skin. It gets my face squeaky clean, doesn't over-dry my dry areas and rids oil on my oily areas. I will DEFINITELY be buying the full size!
Plantscription Anti-Aging Serum
After the previous long review...I haven't used this. I'll probably just give this to someone special...
Wheww! Now, in all honesty, I know where the hype is coming from. What are some of your favorite Origins products? Is there something else I need to check out?
