In Chinese medicine, the body goes through cycles of 7 and 8. Seven years for women, and 8 years for men. Between the ages of 20 and 21 (about my 3rd cycle of 7) my skin started breaking out more easily and became more sensitive. I have probably spent thousands of dollars on facial products. Everything from high-end products, such as Dior to more mainstream brands, such as Clean and Clear.
The lovely ladies at an Origins in New York were kind enough to send me some samples! I told her what I wanted out of my product and she knew exactly what to send. I have used Origins products before, and they have yet to disappoint!
Brighter By Nature moisturizer is a skin tone correcting moisturizer, which is perfect if you have dark spots and discoloration from acne or sun damage. Or even if you just want to help brighten up your face.
Some key ingredients in this moisturizer are Japanese basil leaf, cucumber, white peony, and vitamin C.
My skin is sensitive and tends to break out easily in some areas and dry up in others. This moisturizer feels amazing. It goes on smoothly, absorbs nicely, and does not leave my skin feeling greasy, oily, or dry. Best of all, it didn’t irritate or make my skin feel like it’s on fire like other facial products have!
This is an amazing cleanser. It is gentle, doesn’t dry my skin out or make it irritated/red. I have only been using it a week, but my skin looks refreshed and the tone becomes more even every day.
All of Origins cleansers are plant-based and smell yummy. This cleanser is no exception. The scent is light, fresh, and soothing. You only need a small amount to cover the face, so nothing goes to waste!
Night-A-Mins moisturizer has time-released resurfacers and Vitamins C, E and H. The moisturizer is light, absorbs beautifully, and did not make my face greasy after applying or the next morning, which is something I always look for in nighttime moisturizer! This also comes in an oil-free formula.
This skin-brightening face polisher, with natural ingredients such as apricot, mango seeds, and papaya, gently exfoliates and made my skin glow. Also, the citrus scent helped relieve a migraine that I felt coming on before I used it!
I coated my whole face in a layer of the polish, rubbed it into my skin in a circular motion, let sit for 10 minutes, then rinsed off with warm water. Fantastic!

This serum is designed to cut the appearance of dark spots caused by sun damage, acne, age spots, etc…
Rose Roxburghill complex, which is a Chinese herb known for its cancer fighting properties, is the key ingredient that corrects damage that causes skin discoloration and reduces inflammation to prevent skin irritation and future outbreaks.
I have noticed such a difference in my skin over the last week. It is so important for us to take care of our bodies, inside and out, and Origins has made me seriously reconsider my skin regimen.
I love that all the ingredients in Origins products are natural and organic, and do not include parabens and other harmful ingredients. Also, they are appropriate for all skin types.
From the start, my skin looked and felt better than it has with other products. After a week, I have noticed a softening of texture, increase in brightness, evening of tone, and dark spots that I had from blemishes have noticeably faded. I am confident that Origins products will ease me into my 4th cycle of 7!
