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!!

I had my first ever parent/teacher conference to attend. I really feel like a parent now lol! Glad my son is doing well in school!


  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!

Well this post is going to be a review on Morphe brushes. I'm sure you have heard the name and seen some of your favorite makeup artist using them. I purchased these at IMATS back in April and have been loving them. I already want to purchase more. So let's get into the reviews.


(M411- Pointed Blender and M200-Deluxe Crease)
It is always important to blend, blend blend your makeup!! I do have a few blending brushes but I wanted to have a few backups when I clean them. I love how soft these brushes are and how well they blend out eye shadows. I mainly use the Pointed Blender(black bristles) for the the outer crease and the deluxe crease(brown bristles) for right above my lid.

September Favorites

I can't get over the fact that October is here and it still feels like Summer. We had a brief Fall weekend but Summer was like Nope, I'm still hanging around lol!

Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.

Fro Butter Emu Oil Review

Well I guess Summer is still trying to hold on lol. I was about to pack away all the Summer clothes but I should leave them out I guess. I'll go through all my Fall wardrobe in the meantime to see what I'll need when the weather gets cooler. Today I am sharing my review on Fro Butter Emu Oil. 

I don't know if I told you guys but I am one of Fro Butter's ambassadors for the next 6 months! I was so excited when I got the email about being chosen. You will be seeing post about their products more on here and my Instagram. 
A little background on this company before we hop into the review: 
Fro Butter is a Black Owned Business started in 2012 by owners Susana Stewart and Caroline Maina. They were in the market for affordable and organic hair products and it all started from there. 
I was introduced to this product last year when I received it in my Onyx Box. I really loved the product and so did my husband and son lol. Taken directly from the site, the Emu Oil is designed…
