Ever since I was a lower-case “j”, I’ve been using products by Origins. When they contacted me to try their newest product, ORIGINAL SKIN, I was beyond excited.
All I wanted as a tween, was to be in my twenties. I thought it was the chicest, coolest thing ever. Part of this obsession with being “grown-up”, was that I’d be allowed to wear makeup whenever, or wherever I wanted. My parents had always told me that I couldn’t wear makeup until high school, yet somehow in 6th grade, I convinced my parents that Origins was different because it was natural. I was actually, completely correct.
I remember hanging out at the Origins makeup counter back then; feeling super cool, asking the saleslady for one of their Fringe Benefit Mascaras, paying for it with my allowance, and popping their aromatherapy gumballs in my mouth like candy. [Beyond embarrassing, you guys!] One thing they don’t tell you about your twenties though, is that your skin undergoes some MAJOR changes,that can make you feel like you’re that awkward pre-teen all over again. We’re talking blemishes, dullness, and enlarged pores, ugh! Total #QuarterLifeCrisis, right?
I’ve been on a hunt for the right product to give me my glow back for a while now. As you can imagine, I was beyond excited when Origins contacted me about their newest product, ORIGINAL SKIN. Geared at twenty-somethings, their revolutionary new Original Skin Renewal Serum with Willowherb, restores that youthful glow in five ways:
#1: De-stress. Persian Silk Tree helps skin rebound.
#2: Smooth roughness. Chestnut Seed Extract refines texture.
#3: Delete dullness. Willowherb restores glow.
#4: Shrink pores. Algae helps reduce oil to help them appear to vanish.
#5: Minimize flaws. Blurs imperfections.
Now, I’m a really impatient beauty-product-person, so I loved the instant gratification of this gorgeous smelling serum, and of the completely, silky-smooth effect it had on my skin after just one use. ONE USE! After two weeks, I noticed a total difference, my skin looked noticeably vibrant and smooth, and my pores and blemishes are honestly, nowhere to be found. It was super easy to incorporate into my shameful, barely-there skincare regimen. Hey, growing up might not be so bad after all.
