In the month of December I was suffering from really bad breakouts and dry flaky skin. I felt like none of my previous skin care regimens were working! I was feeling quite stressed about it and just felt uncomfortable in my own skin. During this time I met up with an old friend of mine who raved about the Origins, A Perfect World skincare line. I've heard of Origins before and have tried one of their products years ago. I always felt like Origins was a bit of a higher end brand and not until recently (thanks to my new job) I just felt like I couldn't afford high end beauty products so I stuck to mainly using drugstore products.
My friend who recommend me to try it had really nice skin that almost looked flawless. So I just had to give this line a try! I immediately went to the Origins store with my friend and got the limited edition trial size version of the A Perfect World skincare line. The limited edition version came with a small bottle of the toner, serum, mask and the full sized jar of the day cream with SPF. I also bought the full sized jar of the night cream and serum. The lady who assisted me at the store also gave me a couple of samples which included the cleanser and drink up intensive overnight mask. After about one month of using it, I just fell in love with the entire skincare line and truly noticed the difference in how my skin felt and looked! For the first time, I felt like my pores were shrinking and my skin was starting to glow.
So I took the plunge and bought a few more of their products online and ended up getting the full size bottle of the toner, the starting over eye cream and the sensory therapy peace of mind on-the-spot relief cream. I also got about 5 different samples of products I was interested to try so we will see how those end up working out for me and depending on how I like it I may end up buying the full size version of it. I must say that I am extremely happy that I spent the money on buying these products because I noticed the difference in my skin after a few short weeks. I will say if you're like me and you are hesitant to take the plunge on spending $40 to 50 on each skincare product, give their sample sized products a try. At most of the stores you can purchase the smaller sized bottles and it will give you a good idea if it worth for you the buy the full sized product.
My current skincare routine is the following...
Cleanse face with the A Perfect World cleanser
Use a cotton pad and wipe entire face with the A Perfect World Lotion
Apply the A Perfect World Serum
Apply the A Pefect World day cream with SPF
Repeat everything up above except for the day cream
I used the A Perfect World night cream
Around my eyes I used the Starting Over eye cream
And about twice a week I use either the Clear Improvement charcoal mask or the Drink Up Intensive overnight mask depending on how my skin is feeling
Anyways, I just wanted to share this with you guys because I was so happy with how my skin has been this past week and I think it's always good to share the products you love with others!
If you already are an Origins lover, be sure to let me know which products are must try!
