Herbal Skinsaver

Origins 2

Short post today for the sole purpose of mentioning the magical frothiness that is the Origins checks & balances face wash.

I’m not planning to turn this into a lifestyle blog by any means, but this is the best $21 I’ve spent in a while. No, I do not have any excuses for spending $21 on a tube of gelatinous white stuff. The ethereal glow my skin gets is definitely imaginary, not reality, but if I want to spend $21 to imagine that I look like the dewy Daenerys, then that is my messed-up priority. All that said, this Origins cream is so much better than those awful “gentle” cleansers from Neutrogena that I used for years that I would go back to my 14-year-old self and force her to buy this expensive face soap if I could. Dramatic, yes, I am.

I’m sure some people (or rather, some people’s skin) wouldn’t be moved by the Origins face wash, but it’s very mild and non-irritating, and the reviews on the Origins website are pretty much universally glowing. It also smells like soft peppermint and sage, which is fine by me.

  1. This product sounds great. And if it works for you, spending $21 isn’t a messed up priority! Take it from someone for whom skincare is high on the list of priorities. I would say to try third party sellers if you want to buy it cheaper though. Amazon or eBay? Works for me all the time.

    1. Well, this time I had a $10 off coupon if I spent $25, so it worked out pretty well. It’s only a few dollars cheaper on Amazon, and is equally expensive when you add in the shipping! But to be honest, I completely don’t mind the $21 price tag. It means I can continue to use the cheap concealer & powder combination in lieu of buying an actual foundation!

  2. I may have actually used this before…I like Origins and am right now finishing up the Origins anti-aging serum that my husband got me some time ago. I am so out of the loop on these things so I am perfectly happy if you decide to post on this topic from time to time!

    1. Oh good! I don’t plan to make a regular habit of it, but I don’t mind reading the occasional post about “superficial” topics like skincare and such. Origins really is fantastic… expensive, yes, but very good quality.
