Origins Skincare Review

If you read my recent FAB and Beautycounter posts, you know that I am someone who has battled sensitive skin and blemishes for as long as I can remember. Because of that, I have come to really value a good skincare routine. It is super important to me that I find products that keep my skin looking and feeling its best. Whenever possible I also try to opt for “cleaner” and “safer” ingredients. Three of my favorite tried and true skincare brands are First Aid Beauty, Beautycounter and Origins. I have re-purchased products from these brands repeatedly over the last four years. Origins’ values sustainability, ingredient sourcing and being proactive about their environmental impacts. You can read more about Origins’ mission and values on their site (click here). Many of Origins’ products have received the “clean at Sephora” label as well.

Some of the Origins’ products, including a few from today’s post, are currently on sale at Sephora!

Active Charcoal Mask

This is a great mask (click here) for oily skin and clogged pores. Since my skin is on the dry side, I focus this in the areas where I need it instead of a full face mask. Sometimes I’ll leave it overnight as a spot treatment. I have found it works best after I steam or exfoliate my skin; this helps to open up my pores, so the charcoal can get to work. This has been a great buy for me because it’s effective and it has lasted a really long time. Keep in mind, that this can be drying and probably not something you will use daily.

High-Potency Night-a-Mins™ Oil-Free

This night cream (click here) resurfaces and refreshes skin overnight. Every time I use this, I feel like my skin is moisturized and glowing when I wake up. It’s a good option if you’re looking to even out your skin tone and fade dark marks. It has a gel-like consistency and a light citrus scent. Origins also makes this in a heavier, non-oil-free version too (click here). I definitely recommend this one!

Origins Drink Up™ Intensive Overnight Hydrating Mask

This mask (click here) is great for nights you need extra moisture. I have borrowed this from my mom a bunch. Unlike most masks, you actually don’t rinse this one off. Instead, it’s meant to soak into your skin overnight for extra hydration; more like a heavy moisturizer versus a mask. It has a very light scent and has not cause my skin to breakout. I have loved using this, as needed, throughout the winter.

Checks and Balances™ Frothy Face Wash

This is a great, gentle cleanser (click here) for oily and acne prone skin. It does a good job of removing makeup and excess oil. If you have dry skin, I would not recommend this one as it may leave your face very tight and dry.
