Obsessed With: Origins!

Obsessed Origins

I try my best to be an ecological person (see my post on the MakeUp Eraser), which is why I always try to find planet-friendly options when it comes to my beauty routine. When I heard about Origins, I knew I would love this company. Not only are their products made mostly with natural ingredients (actual plants), but also they work with organizations to plant trees, they have a container recycling program (the first in the cosmetics industry) and the products are manufactured using renewable sources. What else could you ask for?

Here are some of Origins’ products that I have adopted and that are part of my daily routine now.

Origins Cosmetics Obsession

“Drink Up” Hydrating Lip Balm in “Berry Splash”. The product is thick -like a balm and not like a gloss-, and it has a nice, faint minty smell which is great. It leaves a nice shimmer on the lips and is a natural-looking colour.

“GinZing” Brightening Mascara to Lengthen & Lift in “Black”. Big thick wand that truly lengthens the lashes. This mascara leaves lashes natural-looking because the formula isn’t too thick. The wand isn’t my favourite but the formula is great.

“GinZing” Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff. This product is a LIFE SAVER, no joke. As an insomniac and a girl with the world’s worst dark circles, I can’t live without this product! In the morning, when I can barely open my eyes, this cream is like a cup of coffee for my under eye area: as soon as I apply it, my eyes are wide opened. It has a nice shimmer that reflects light and cancels some of the darkness. A total must-have!

“Modern Friction” Nature’s Gentle Dermabrasion. A very gentle exfoliator with a nice citrusy/planty smell. For all skin types, even sensitive.

“GinZing” Energy-boosting moisturizer. A-MA-ZING citrusy smell! Very light cream that “awakens” dull-looking skin. I am addicted and I love the texture.

“High-Potency Night-A-Mins” Mineral-enriched renewal cream. This night cream is quite thick but penetrates fast (it doesn’t leave a disgusting oily finish on the skin). Also has a nice citrusy/planty smell, but more subtle than that of the day cream.

“Clear Improvement” Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores. I have tried many “skin improvement” masks and let me tell you: this one REALLY WORKS!!! The active charcoal warms the skin, leaving it soft, and cleaning out them disgusting pores. Pure magic! Oh, and I love looking totally badass with a black mask hehe. A must-have!

My personal favourites: definitely the eye cream and also the mask.
