My Skin Care Routine

Since I turned the big 3-0 this year I decided to start taking my skin care a little bit more seriously. It's not that I was lazy before but I just had a big mismatch of products and my skin looked blah. 

I decided to do something I've never done before and actually buy all my products from one brand, to see if using one brand for everything made a difference.  I decided to try Origins because I have used some of their products before and liked them and because I am really trying to use natural plant based products as much as I can. 

I have very sensitive combination oily/dry/acne prone skin so I'm always looking for products that will reduce oil without further drying my skin and most importantly not make it break out!   I spoke with an Origins rep for awhile at the store going over all my wants and needs and here is what we came up with. 

I've been using the products for about 2 months now and below are my reviews:
 



Skin Care Routine

Skin Care Routine by ecnat5 featuring an origins skincare


 1. Never a Dull Moment face cleanser- so far I liked this cleanser but I don't love it.  I feel like it leaves some residue on my face.  When I run out of this I'm going to try their Checks and Balances Cleanser which I've used in the past and liked.

2.  Purifying Tonic Toner- I never used a toner before but I am actually really liking this. I feel like it is really getting my skin clean and helping to control the oil without drying out my skin.  

3.  Dr. Weil Mega Bright Skin Tone Correcting Serum- So far I am loving this serum.  I have fair skin with some freckles and sun spots and this really helps to even out my tone

4.  GinZing Eye Cream- I am the queen of black under eye circles. I have actually had people ask me if I have a black eye. This stuff has been amazing at brightening and de-puffing my awful under eye circles 

5. VitaZing Energy Boosting Moisturizer- this is a tinted moisturizer and it was perfect this summer.  It really gave me the brighter skin glow that I was looking for but is light weight enough that it did not bother my oily skin.  I used this all summer with a pressed powder and blush and did not reach for my foundation once!

6. High Potency Night-A-Mins Oil Free- I must confess I never used a night moisturizer before.  I always thought a night moisturizer would make my sensitive acne prone skin worse, I was so wrong.  This stuff has worked wonders and hydrates my face at night which helps reduce oil during the day. 


What's your skin care routine like?  Do any of you use Origins?   Anyone have any miracle products for combo/sensitive/acne prone?
