3 Products I'm Loving from Origins
Hey lovelies! Today I decided to give you a little glimpse into some of the products that I just can't get enough of right now. Just about a month ago a dear friend of mine gave me a ton of free products from Origins, some sealed and some unsealed. I was pumped to receive a TON of free product to try out. What I truly love about Origins is they're a natural company. They use only the best ingredients, and truly believe in the products they make. Today I'm sharing three products from them I'm 100% obsessed with!
Origins Clear Improvement
Let me first start of by saying, charcoal has been my best friend for the last decade. Since I was fourteen years old, I've been a strong advocate for charcoal. When I turned thirteen, and puberty ultimately hit, I was blessed with acne. Charcoal has been a huge game changer for my skin. Without the use of charcoal in my skincare routine, who knows what my skin would look like now. Charcoal is an amazing tool in fighting the battle against acne. It absorbs oil, deep cleans the pores, and purifies the skin. So when I was given Clear Improvements, it was a no brainer this was the first product I wanted to test out. This little tube is packed with bamboo charcoal, which draws out deep pore impurities and helps to clear the skin. It also has White China Clay, which absorbs toxins from the pores and dissolves any impurities in the skin. What I truly love about this mask is that it works fast to keep your skin clear. Whenever I'm feeling stressed, or I know my monthly visitor is on it's way, I use this mask. I slather on a thin layer to my cheeks, nose and chin and chill out for twenty minutes. Whenever I use a charcoal based product my skin instantly looks more matte, and healthier overall. It also helps to bring down the redness in my skin that follows with a breakout which is super helpful. Overall, this is one of my go-to masks.
Origins By All Greens
Have you ever felt like your skin needs a detox? This little guy is basically a green super food smoothie for your face! By All Greens is a clay mask that turns into a self activating foam cleanser-and applies bright green. The clay is meant to detoxify, while the foam effectively deep cleans your pores. This powerhouse is loaded with coconut oil, spirulina, spinach, green tea and kaolin clay- all very powerful ingredients for your entire body. What I truly love about this mask is that it smells INCREDIBLE. It smells super fruity, and fresh and tingles on my skin. I first apply this on damp skin, without blending, and wait 5-10 minutes. What I'm kind of obsessed with is the fact you don't have to wait long for the mask to do it's job. When the mask is ready, it turns to foam, telling you it's time to rinse. After it foams, I gently massage into my skin and rinse. Each time I use this mask, my skin has a noticeable glow to it, almost instantly. My skin appears healthier, brighter, and feels a million times softer. I tend to use this mask once a week, usually on a day where I'm feeling tired or sluggish. This mask definitely wakes up the senses and keeps you glowing all day.
I actually received this twice, so now I own two bottles of this! It's a total given that before you apply your foundation, you need a primer. Primers are like insurance for your skin, and makeup. Though, this Maskimizer is new to the skincare community, I'm not sure how I lived without it. This Origins Maskimizer is a priming mist, infused with Marine Algae, that helps soften and prepare the skin for your favorite mask. You simply mist this onto your skin, or wherever you're going to apply your mask. I think this step is essential when using a mask. It softens and hydrates the skin, and prepares it for the next step. It essentially enhances your "mask" experience, by taking it a step further. What I love about this spray is that it smells great, and one spritz goes a long way. I honestly use this spray every time I use a mask, even if it's not an Origins based product and I love it. I feel like my mask spreads better, and comes off way easier. Overall, this will always be a staple in my skincare routine.
