New Year, New Beginnings

A new year makes us all stop, reflect, and think about what we want to achieve in the upcoming year.

In the winter, when my skin tends to get dry, dull, and flaky. I’m always on the hunt for products to give me back my radiant glow. That is why I turned to Origins Original Skin set. 

My favorite is the Rose Clay mask. It works as an exfoliant that helps create a fresh canvas for your moisturizer and serum. It shrinks your pores and gets rid of those pesky blackheads that appear on your nose. 


The Matte moisturizer with Willowherb is hydrating and has a pleasant, faint orange citrus scent. It absorbs into the skin leaving it exquisitely soft.

The renewal serum illuminates and fills fine lines to create a smooth base that almost exiles concealers. It’s a soft pearl pink which also slightly color corrects.

Overall, the mask, moisturizer, and serum were exactly what I needed to give my skin a little pick-me-up this winter season. All three are worth the buy and last a long time even using it everyday. 

Once you try let me know your results in the comments below! 




I received these products free or complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. All opinions are my own.

Over two weeks ago I received Lancôme’s Visionaire Crescendo. This 28-day skin peel works in a two-phase process and is meant to exfoliate skin surface cells and address multiple skin concerns: uneven skin texture, the appearance of pores, wrinkles/fine lines, and dark spots.  

I’ve never used any kind of in-home chemical peel and was somewhat leery about trying this product, but I gave it a chance because I know Lancôme is a trustworthy brand. So, here’s how the first 14 days went: Continue reading “My 28-day skin transformation with Lancôme’s Visionnaire Crescendo”
