Origins the US based cosmetics brand with more than 2,000 stores worldwide, is known for their all natural skin care products. During my college years, I used to visit the Origins store often to stock up on lotions, cleansers and my go to product the ‘pinch your cheeks’ blush. As a blogger, I’m lucky enough to get introduced to new and amazing products all the time. But, I was recently invited to a brand new Origins store that opened at The Falls mall. Once I entered the store, I was immediately filled with memories of my college years. It was so much fun to learn about their new store concepts (try their free mini facials and free samples of any products you want to try), products and loyalty programs. Which is why in this post, I’m sharing my new and old favorites from the Origins store.
The Nature’s Gentle Dermabrasion which comes in a pack of 125 ml is a soothing skin refinement cream which improves the texture of your skin through gentle exfoliation. This age soothing exfoliation therapy helps to smooth the skin surface without any irritation. The rice extracts present in this cream helps to eliminate the blemishes, dry patches, dead cells and all signs of skin damage while the lemon oil extracts helps brighten your skin surface. Within a few days of use you can see a visible reduction in wrinkles, fine lines and blemishes. Legend has it that the ancient Japanese women used to bathe in rice water for glowing skin. This age old beauty ritual helped women get a smooth and flawless skin after every bath. Regularly exfoliating your skin with the Gentle Dermabrasion leaves your skin soft, supple and polished.

If you are looking forward to silk soft skin all round the season then the ginger soufflé body cream is a must have for you. You can always rely on the whipped body cream to take best care of your skin and protect it from the ravages of winter or the heat and dust of summer. Ginger which is extensively used in Indian and Chinese medicine since ancient times is an active ingredient of this product. Its tangy and spicy aroma would mesmerise your senses and stimulate vitality. Still used as an aphrodisiac in Asian medicine, the aroma of ginger is known to trigger up your romance. The nourishing olive oil, grape seed oil, apricot kernel oil and rice bran oil would instantly transform your dry lacklustre skin while the crisp smell of lemon and bergamot keeps your spirits up all round the day. Use every day after shower for skin which feels soft looks polished.
The all new Mega Mushroom cleanser is a product which will make you forget everything you knew about cleansing. This no rinse cleanser comes with an alcohol and soap free formula which helps to clean up dirt and make up. Enriched with the signature Mega Mushroom blend by Dr. Weil, this miraculous cleanser also comes with Berry ferment. This antioxidant rich product would not only cleanse your skin but also help it resist the environmental toxins and pollutants. The Reishi Mushroom (used extensively in ancient Chinese medicine for healing and promoting longevity since 7000 years) also comes with skin soothing elements resulting in silk smooth skin which is never dry or irritated. Known as the “Mushroom Of Immortality”, the Reishi Mushroom calms the skin while cleaning it. All you ladies with sensitive skin should definitely give this cleanser a try.
6. Pinch Your Cheeks (It’s enough to make you blush)
The pinch your cheeks blush on which comes in 3 different shades is sure to give you the flawless blushed look you want to achieve. I used to constantly wear the color ‘coralberry’ every day. Once you apply just couple of dots, it really does stay on all day. This time, I’m excited to try the ‘pinkberry’ color. Its gentle colors gives your cheeks a perfect rosy sheen and keep you blushing all day long.
