The Original Skin Collection from Origins

If you’ve been around these parts before, then you know I am a fan of Origins. I recently wrote a review for their GinZing range, which I have been a fan of for a couple years now. I’m moving on to another collection from Origins to give my opinions on. This is the Original Skin collection of products. Recognizable by the light pink packaging in the brand’s diverse coloured designed packaging, it is easy to spot this collection.

Original Skin Added the New Matte Moisturizer

The most recent addition to the Original Skin product range is a moisturizer. Not just any moisturizer, the matte moisturizer. Two words that usually do not go together, but are truly magical when combined. For people with more oily skin, they want to get the hydration their skin needs, but without looking like an oily, hot mess. This is where the “matte” part comes in handy, keeping the oil at bay. The Original Skin™ Matte Moisturizer with Willowherb does not complete mattify your face, as it still allows a natural glow to show. The water cream consistency is a bit bouncy at first feel. You can feel your skin feel instantly more hydrated upon applying it, which helps for a more even makeup application. This product follows the rest of the range as it helps boost your natural glow without looking oily or greasy, refines your skin’s texture, and minimizes your pores.

The Serum with Willowherb

Another product included in the Original Skin range is the Original Skin™ Renewal Serum with Willowherb. This serum helps to restore radiance to your complexion. The main ingredient, Willowherb, helps restore your natural glow. Persian silk tree helps your skin to recover and rebound from stress. The chestnut seed extract helps refine the texture of your skin. The algae helps reduce face oils from surfacing. All these ingredients work together to help you be radiant, perfect your skin, but without looking oily. If I need help with anything besides texture, it’s hiding the oiliness of my skin throughout the day.

The Multitasking Mask

No product range is complete without a face mask. This range is no exception. The Original Skin™ Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay definitely caught my attention with the word “retexturizing”. I have stated before and will state again, I can tend to have pretty bad skin texture issues on my face. This mask purifies your skin while refining it. It includes the collection’s key ingredient – willowherb. Willowherb, Mediterranean rose clay, and the other ingredients work to smooth, refine your pores, and improve the quality of your skin… all while deep cleaning. You only have to keep this mask on your face for about ten minutes to get all the benefits as the clay hardens. Definitely a fan of this one!
