What does every girl in her 30s want? For everyone to think that she’s in her 20s. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but this kind of thing happens to me all the time. Most people I meet, from coworkers to the guy at the wine shop who cards me on occasion, believe me to be in my mid-twenties.
Besides having amazing genes (thanks mom and dad!), I credit my glowing, youthful-looking skin to adopting a good skin care routine early on in my life. Sunscreen every day, removing my makeup every night before bed (not matter how tired I am or late it is), drinking lots of water and proper nutrition – you know the deal. For most of us, our skin begins to go through biological and physiological changes that affect its quality (think enlarged pores, uneven skin tone and maybe even a few dark spots). Sound familiar?
Origins Original Skin Renewal Serum with Willowherb is just what your quarter-life crisis skin needs. Like all Origin product, it’s formulated with a unique blend of natural ingredients that benefits your skin instantly and over the long term.
Chestnut Seed Extract – known for its skin refining properties, it helps to boost skin cell’s turnover and eliminate roughness to improve overall texture.
Laminaria Saccharina – a nutrient-rich algae extract found in the North East Atlantic Ocean, this helps to balance the skin’s production of sebum, and shrink the appearance of pores.
Canadian Willowherb – helps to restore skin’s clarity and luminosity, and give your skin its original glow.
Persian Silk Tree – an anti-irritant that works with Canadian willowherb to help keep skin at its peak health and recover from stress.
Light and fluid, like you would expect a serum to be. It’s a pretty shade of pale pink with a hint of shimmer, that helps give your skin that instant glow. There is a light scent, thanks to the addition of floral and citrus essential oils. I’m very sensitive to scents in my skin care, but this one with its notes of soft rose, grapefruit and amyris, is delicate and makes your routine exactly what it should be, a blissful moment.
I’ve been using the Origins Skin for a few weeks now and really love the immediate results. It’s so refreshing on my skin and the formula really helps my skin look even better (especially on those no-makeup days). I look forward to seeing the long-term results and will be sure to give you all an update when I finish my first bottle.
