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!

Book Review: Dreams Are Built Overnight

Can't believe my birthday is next week, next Monday to be exact! I just want to have a nice, relaxing day. Today I am bringing you another book review (I know, two in one week lol)!

I have to say, I really proud of this guy and everything that he is doing now. I actually went to elementary school with David and he was a pretty cool person(and still is lol). Before this book, he started a company called Sleep Is 4 Suckers which sells apparel with a message behind it. David also expanded into motivational speaking and is a pretty dynamic speaker. I really wanted to support him and read this book because I was really drawn to the title of it.

I honestly did not want to put this book down when I started reading it. I read this book every free moment I had because I really wanted this information to sink in. You can really visualize what David is saying in this book and really picture the message he sharing. He really does drop a lot of amazing knowledge, tips and advice in this book.

Happily Ever Johnson: Registries, Rings and Things

It is crazy how fast this wedding is approaching! I can't believe it is almost February and June will be here before we know it! We have done so much with wedding planning and trying to make sure we have everything covered. First we started with finishing our registries. We started them but it just didn't feel complete. Earlier this month we attended a Sip and Scan event at Macy's. They had representatives from different brands such as Mikasa, Kitchen Aid and All Clad to answer any questions about products and to help you pick out the things you would like to put on your registry. They had a DJ there, passed hors o'derves and mocktails.

Here we are with the scanner having registry fun lol

We didn't have our formal or everyday dinnerware on the registry and finally picked those out. It was hard trying to decide what to go with. For everyday, I was looking for something that was durable since we have a 5 year old and dishware that was going to last. For our formal di…
