Are you between twenty and thirty years old? Do you have a few problems with your skin? A few weeks ago, I received the entire Original Skin line by Origins and I just couldn’t wait to start testing the entire line. I’ve been using the entire range for 2 weeks now and here’s what I think about it.The Original Skin line by Origins is especially for people in their Quarter-Life Crisis. When life makes a transition, your skin follows. Research shows that, when in your twenties, pores become bigger and more visible, your skin tone is less even and aging spots will start to show. Environmental stress also has a big influence on our skin. Origins created a high-quality solution using Willowherb to fight that dullness causing protein change and restore your natural, gorgeous glow.
The Original Skin line originally existed out of 3 products:
- Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay
- Renewal Serum with Willowherb
- Essence Lotion with Dual Ferment Complex
Now three new products have been added:
- Cleansing makeup-removing jelly with Willowherb
- Pore Perfecting Cooling Primer with Willowherb
- Matte Moisturizer with Willowherb
All of these products are best for renewal and radiance and can be used for dry, normal and oily skin.The best seller from the Original Skin line is by far the Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay and I do get why (coming back to that). They also came out with their first (cooling) primer. It is the glow-to step between skincare & makeup. This cooling, frothy foam primer leaves skin looking fresh, pore-fected & softly glowing.
My opinion on Original Skin
I cannot express enough how happy I am with my skin at the moment. I’ve got a pretty sensitive, acne prone skin so it’s pretty hard to please me. Two weeks into testing I dare to go outside without makeup and that doesn’t happen all the time. I get lots of compliments on my skin. It’s even, glowing and reduces the visibility of my pores. It does all the things that I am looking for in a skincare line so this girl is very happy.
I am a huge fan of literally everything. I can’t say I have a favorite product because I just love them all. The moisturizer does not make my skin greasy, at all. Not even during the day when wearing makeup. The serum gets absorbed into the skin in just a few seconds making it easy to apply the moisturizer immediately afterwards. The jelly removes your makeup in a whip and the toner leaves your skin feeling super fresh & soft.
The scent is pretty specific and I do get the fact that it’s not for everybody. I love the fresh ‘citronella’ like scent. It just gives your skin a boost. My boyfriend is not a big fan of the scent. Whenever I’m doing my skin care routine he’s always like: wowwwaa you’re doing your skin, right? So to me it’s best that you smell before buying.
How do I use it? Both in the morning & evening. I just skip the makeup removing jelly in the morning because it’s not needed. I must admit that I use some extra micellar water before the jelly to make sure my skin is super clean before applying my toner, serum & moisturizer. The primer is only needed before you apply makeup. It’s a primer that’s ice cold and tingels a bit on the skin. I’m a huge fan because it does not feel extremely chemical onto the skin. It makes the skin soft but not overly soft, if you now what I mean.
All of these products are crazy good and I’m already looking forward to seeing my skin with a few months.
