Origins night-a-mins mineral enriched eye cream

Origins A Perfect World Liquid Moisture
This is a great alcohol-free "toner". I love that it manages to clean any remaining dirt from my skin after I cleanse and closes my pores right away. It smells great, and makes my very sensitive skin feel rejuvinated. The price seems nice, but..... full text >>
Origins A Perfect World Nighttime antioxidant mask
Made with White Tea (a powerful antioxidant). The best part about this mask if that if you have dry skin, there's no need to wash it off, just tissue off. And it can also be used with the other products in the A Perfect World line (all made with White Tea, said to be 300 times more powerful than green tea)... full text >>
Origins a perfect world white tea skin guardian
I am a 40 year old with relatively healthy skin but also very sensitive skin, so it's difficult to find a product that doesn't cause skin break outs or irritation.

I bought Origins balanced diet without doing much research and now regret it. The wheat and soy protein are supposed to moisturize without leaving skin greasy and Konjac powder is supposed to soak up excess oil. The lotion did not make my skin..... full text >>
Origins Balanced Diet Moisturizer
Balanced diet is a moisturizer designed for combination skin, but it wreaked havoc on my sensitive cheeks. I'm very fair and have sensitive, combination skin. I wore this moisturizer for four days and in that time my cheeks became red, dry, flaky..... full text >>

Origins Dr. Weil for Origins Plantidote Face Lotion
I bought this when I had a rare bout of dry skin, thinking that its antioxidant-packed "oil-free" cream could take care of it. After I used it the first night, I was fine. I looked at the ingredient list to realize there WERE indeed several kinds of oil, which didn't sit well with my usually oily skin... full text >>

My face had severe reaction from the last product I used due to so many chemical ingredients. I starting having burning sensations, stinging, redness and became very dry and flaky, tight, and developed fine lines and wrinkles... full text >>
Origins Dr. Weil's Plantidote Moisturizer
I've used the serum and I really liked it, so I thought I'd try the moisturizer. I wish I would have tried it earlier. I used it the first night, and I woke up with skin than I thought was possible. I did away with a lot of redness, not completely gone, but wow, my face feels terrific... full text >>
Origins Eye Doctor
Origins Eye Doctor worked well to moisturize the eye area without producing any redness or irritation, although I did not see any reduction of fine lines or wrinkles. I have always found Origins products to be especially gentle on the skin, however, the results aren't very dramatic... full text >>
Origins Eye Doctor

No effect
Origins Modern Friction
They recommend using the product dry (it's a thick creamy paste w/ some mild abrassives in it) and then adding water to foam it up after you have lightly scrubbed your face w/ it. Their recommendations were to use this product 2-3 x/week for maximum results... full text >>
Origins Modern Friction Nature's Gentle Dermabrasion
This a great exfoliator which leaves skin visibly cleaner and more refined. Unlike cheaper exfoliants, the ingredients were gentle and particles did not scratch or irritate the skin. Results were obvious from the first application but I would not recommend using it more than once a week as it cleans very thoroughly and can easily over-sensitise the skin... full text >>
Origins Nature's Own Microdermabraision
This is a great product, and it lasts a very long time - probably 6 months or so. I use it regularly, about two to three times a week. Additionally, this product is great for sensitive skin, and it is easy to use. It comes in a cream form, and..... full text >>
Origins Never Say Dry extra-rich moisture cream
Really good moisturizer for dry skin. I had flaky patches all over my chin and from my nose to my mouth and with 2 uses of this cream, they've all but dissapeared. It's really rich without leaving a greasy feeling on the skin. It will also get rid of those pesky fine lines caused by dry skin... full text >>
Origins Night-A-Mins Eye Cream
I am 46-years old and have tried probably 30+ high-end brands of eyecream from dept. stores, on-line beauty companies, etc. because I have very sensative eyes. Eye creams would either not be moisturizing enough, or too greasy or would make my eyes..... full text >>

Origins Out of Trouble
Origins Out of Trouble is a simple to use, highly effective facial mask. You only need to leave it on for 10 minutes to let it do its work. I found it a lot easier to use than masks that need to stay on until the dry completely, which can take a long time... full text >>

Origins Youthopia Firming Cream
I bought this cream at Macy's. My skin is too young to tell whether this cream is truly firming (I'm 25). Before using this cream, my skin would always break out at least once a month. However, I noticed after I started using it, my skin became very clear and healthy, although it's not an acne cream, it surely did clear up mine... full text >>
