My Current Skincare Favorites
Finding good skincare products has always been sort of a struggle, for me. I tend to like something when I first start to use it, and then my skin starts to have problems after some time and I have to go onto a different routine. I have been using these three products for around four months and I have to say, my skin has been having no problems since I started using them. They are all from Origins, a brand I had heard a lot about but never tested out. After seeing great results, I am now a hooked customer.
To give you a little history of my skin in short, I have sensitive, acne prone skin that loves to produce an access amount of oil. I always have to be careful with my skincare; a lot of times I can't use just anything from the drugstore because I will eventually breakout or get a redness irritation. Definitely don't want that.
I wear makeup practically every day that I go out of the house. When I'm having a stay home day, I love to keep my skin clean with no makeup. Let's let that skin breathe! To take off my makeup, I have been using the Origins Gentle Cleansing Oil. The title says it all. It's a cleansing oil that is gentle but oh so effective. The product can be used as just a cleanser, or to remove makeup. I use it to remove makeup. It gets off everything I put on my face and never irritates my sensitive eyes and skin. I put it on my dry skin and then gradually add water. I rub my eyes and rest of my skin in circular motions. I am always so pleased with the results! If you want a gentle cleanser/makeup remover I would say give this a try!
The other product I am loving at the moment is the Origins Matte Moisturizer with Willowherb. This moisturizer is perfect for my skin that loves to stay oily. It sinks right into my skin, leaving no residue and provides a completely matte finish. It moisturizes my skin enough so that it doesn't feel dry, but lets it still feel like it can breathe. It also has a wonderful cooling sensation with application. I'm in love!
In the evening, I like to have something that gives me more moisture, but doesn't just sit on the top of my skin, feeling like an average mask would. I was talking to an employee at Origins and she recommended that I use this Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. When I heard the name of this product, I told her I wouldn't like it. But then she put some on my hand and it sunk right in and made my skin smell so good and feel super soft. I put the product in my basket immediately! I use this mask (although it really does feel more like a moisturizer) every night and wake-up to skin that feels hydrated but not greasy. So good!
I think these products are going to stick in my beauty cabinet for good. They are a perfect match for what my skin has been desiring for so long! I hope you go on over to the Origins website or head to a store to try some of these products. Especially if you have a similar skin type to mine!
