Origins – Skincare

With a variety of skincare products out there in the market today, I wanted to talk about a brand that is focused on natural and organic ingredients.  That company would be, Origins. Their mission statement alone, “Powered by Nature – Proven by Science” is a catch in itself.

For those of you familiar with the brand, you know that Origins not only carry a line of beauty products but is also known for their skincare.  I was fortunate enough to get my hands on numerous items to share with you.


Modern Friction is an exfoliant for your face.  I have sensitive skin, so after reading that it’s a “gentle” dermabrasion, I thought it would be great to try.  Directions call for applying over dry skin (skin that’s not damp or wet – however, if you have ultra sensitive skin, it’s ok to apply to damp skin).  At first, it felt a little odd sweeping it over my dry face but it certainly made a difference once I started to feel the small exfoliants doing it’s job of cleaning out the dirt from makeup, etc.  After adding water to my face, it turned into a lather which washed off nicely.  My skin immediately felt soft and smooth after trying it just once.  To see more of a difference in your skin, use Modern Friction two to three times per week.  CLICK HERE to purchase Modern Friction.



Checks and Balances is a gentle face wash that can be used both morning and evening.  My husband actually started using this and for someone who is outside for most of the day, it certainly cleans out the dirt and grime that tend to stick to our skin.  Checks and Balances is strong enough to clean your face, yet gentle enough to not dry it out after use.  The combination of Lavender, Spearmint and Bergamot gives a nice scent while washing your face.  For someone like me who wears makeup daily, it certainly cleans my face thoroughly.   CLICK HERE to purchase Checks and Balances



Night Health is a moisturizer for your face and is meant to use at night. The rich consistency feels great when applied to the skin which makes for working it’s magic while you sleep, giving you a revitalized feeling skin in the morning.  With products that prove to give your skin radiance, smoothes out fine lines, evens out skin tones, etc. I would recommend on using this Night Health for about 28 consecutive nights to see a difference.  What I personally like about this product is how it leaves my skin moisturized and the calming scents of Lavender, Chamomile, and Mandarin Essential oils kick in.  CLICK HERE to purchase Night Health



Brightening Best is a limited edition collection that includes Checks and Balances, Brighter by Nature (Skin tone correcting serum), Brighter by Nature (Skin Tone Correcting Moisturizer with SPF 35) and Brighter by Nature (Brightening Peel Pads with Fruit Acids) and comes in a medium size bag that can used for cosmetic products as well.  The Brighter by Nature collection is to help our skin look even, brighten the dark spots and give more of a luminous brighter and look as we age.  CLICK HERE to purchase products from the Brighter by Nature Collection.



To Glow is a limited edition collection that includes GinZing Eye Cream (to give the look of brighter and depuffed eyes), Make a Difference (skin rejuvenating treatment lotion), Full Story Mascara (in black), and a dual Liquid Lip Color (in Pink Sands and Sangria).  This is a perfect kit to keep in your travel vanity as it pretty much carries something to treat your skin while giving your lips and eyes the quick color you need. It also comes in this holiday bag which makes for an easy grab and go with all four of the items.   CLICK HERE to purchase the limited edition To Glow.
