The Origins Event Recap + why you need to wander in a store
Soft Waves with T3
I had such a fun experience last Saturday, and if you came out to the Origins at Southpoint Mall it was so fun to meet you!
Origins retail stores recently got a major makeover and it’s now a surplus of eye candy and products and samples and testers galore. And all of those words are words I want to use when describing a skin care store.
I’ve used Origin products for years! I started with their GinZing eye cream which has the softest illumination in it to brighten under eye areas. Then my sister sold me on the Clear Improvements Charcoal Mask, and now that I’ve had a chance to try even more products I’d like to tell you that I can’t live without the Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask.
Anyway, last Saturday I hosted a little relaunch event in their retail store to celebrate their new look! Origins focuses on plant-based products and has a wide array of skincare needs it tends to.
I loved this Best Sellers section, and spent a lot of time talking to guests right next to it and pointed to my personal favorites, which happen to be some of their best sellers.
I also sat down with Ashley, an employee, at the round station in the center of the store and got a one-on-one detailed plan for my Origins skin care. She really listened to me, like when I told her I wasn’t going to use a toner, and addressed certain skin care issues I’m dealing with.
I described my skin as dehydrated, sensitive, and blemish prone (which is a new development). I get a lot of dryness around my nose. I also feel like my skin is quite dull, and I’m trying to brighten dark spots that are leftover from my pregnancy with Luke.
Ashley explained why the Mega-Bright system would be perfect for me but also suggested I apply a swipe of Make a Difference Plus Rejuvenating Treatment Lotion to my face before my daily moisturizer. It isn’t a toner, but instead is a treatment to help the skin absorb what is applied immediately after. So, it’s like a boost for any specific treatments or simply your daily face cream.
I’ve been giving so many of the products a try and my skin always feels so supple after I apply anything that is intended for hydration. And there isn’t any greasiness or heavy feeling, which is what I watch out for in hydration. I need all the help I can get, but I don’t want to look shiny.
Other than their normal skincare range, they have so many cute holiday gift ideas. I even bought a box set for my mom with two difference scents that I divided up and kept half for myself (sorry mom!). There are great little stocking stuffer ideas as well!
If you haven’t been in an Origins, it’s worth checking out. And make a beeline for their sample wall when you go in, would you? I’ve never been in a store where they offered so many samples, and even wanted to make you samples of things that you are interested but hesitant about trying!
Origins was kind enough to offer a giveaway of their Holiday Set called Ginger Pleasures to 3 lucky winners! It includes the Ginger Souffle Whipped Body Cream, Ginger Burst Savory Body Wash, Ginger Incredible Spreadable Smoothing Ginger Body Scrub, Ginger Gloss Smoothing Body Oil, Ginger Essence Sensuous Skin Scent, and a Body Puff.
