Skin Care Product Review: Origins

Happy Friday!!! I have had a pretty busy day and just getting to writing this post. I am going to be reviewing the Origins products that I purchased on Black Friday from Sephora. It was part of the 10 dollar deals they have during the holiday season. Let's get into the reviews.

The box of the Origins came with three different products and all were sample size. It was great if you wanted to try out the product before purchasing the full size. I am still using these samples, you really get more than a couple uses out them. I have tried Origins previously and really loved them! I just can't use a whole line (cleanser, toner, moisturizer) or my face would break out. I can use products individually.

Clear Improvements

This charcoal mask helps get down into your pores and clear them of impurities. I love using charcoal mask because they really draw dirt out and clear your pores. This one really did what it was supposed to. I noticed a big difference after using this mask. My skin felt so refreshed and looked amazing. I use this mask once a week and the full size product is 17.00 for the 1.7 oz and  25.00 for the 3.4 oz.

Drink It Up Intensive

I always wanted to try an overnight facial mask. I was afraid that the mask would get all over the pillows and make a mess. That is not the case with this one. I haven't had a messy pillow case at all. I love that this mask smells like candy!! It makes me want to eat it lol! It has a nice, silky texture and doesn't feel heavy at all on the skin. It really absorbs into the skin during the night and left my skin feeling super soft the next morning. The full size of this mask is 17.00 and 25.00 for the 1.7 and 3.4 oz bottles.

Modern Friction

I tried this gentle dermabrasion a couple years ago and it broke my face out. I think it was from using all the Origins products at the same time. I was a little hesitant on giving this a try again but I wanted to see if I could use this product alone. Good news, it didn't irritate my skin at all!! I love how gentle and creamy this product is. You really don't feel the exfoliation too much. It really left my skin feeling very smooth and soft. I think I can use this product now. The full sizes are 20.00 for 1.7 oz and 39.50 for 4.2 oz.

Overall, I had a great experience with Origins this time around. I really love the results I got and how my skin looks and feels. I would go on and repurchase the full size products. How you tried anything from Origins? What were some of your favorites? Comment below and let me know. Have a great weekend and see you Sunday!!

  1. I've used Modern Friction before but the other products are new to me...glad they were such a hit with you!

    1. Thanks B, you should give them a try sometime! How did you like Modern Friction?

  2. I haven't tried any origins skincare but my friend loves the Charcoal Mask. Maybe I will pick up a kit like this if they have something similar at Sephora or Macy's.

    1. You can go to Macy's and I think they would give you samples to try before purchasing. They should have the little sample kits too. Thanks for stopping by Tanya!

Happily Ever Johnson: 3 Months To Go!

*Que screaming and running around like a crazy person*  I can't believe we are three months away from the big day!! It seems like yesterday we just got engaged and started making plans and now it is almost here. I'm not freaking out yet (Lies, I am on the inside lol). I just want to make sure we don't forget anything lol. It seems like it is so easy to forget something when just about everything is going on. I'm getting into the swing of things in my new position and most of my focus seems to be there at the moment but I'm making sure to keep up with everything. I recently met with my coordinators (aka My mom,aunts and cousins) to preview the centerpieces. I'm so thankful for them stepping in and helping with the decor and planning. I'll give you guys a sneak peek at the centerpieces but you won't see the full effect of everything until after the big day.

Of course I drew my inspiration from Pinterest. I have spent so many hours on there and found so m…

Spring Fashion Trends

For many years I would say that I'm going to NYFW and then forget when it is lol! One day I'm going to make it there lol! Speaking of fashion, today I'm going to share a few Spring Fashion trends that I will most likely be wearing this season. (Images taken from the web)
Vibrant Stripes
I love wearing bright and bold colors when it gets warmer outside. This trend is super fun and such a statement. You can wear this in the office with a bold striped button up or out on the town with a maxi dress. 

One Shoulder
I really think this trend is super cute and flirty. I have seen many versions of the one should trend over the years and this one seems to be my favorite. I would probably wear this with a top or dress. 

Slogan T-Shirts
I know these have been around forever and this trend to me will never go out of style. There are so many slogans out there, it is hard to keep up with all of them. I do have a few myself and I love how you can dress them up or down.

This is anothe…
