Origins Limited Edition Earth Month Line.

 

To celebrate Earth Month 2013, Origins is debuting four limited edition products that provide the essential skincare prep needed for a fresh outlook. In partnership with American Forests’ Global ReLeaf; an education and action program that helps individuals, agencies and corporations improve the local and global environment by planting and caring for trees, Origins will plant a tree for each limited edition product purchased from April 21-28, 2013.

They have re-packaged some of the classic products from the line with a limited edition artwork to celebrate Earth Month. I packed these with me for the trip and love the comfort they provide.

The answer to shiny skin!

There’s nothing glamorous about a greasy complextion.  Avoid an oil spill with these face savers!

TREAT IT! Take a proactive stance by adding an oil absorber to your routine.

Try T-zone targeting astringent like Origins, Zero Oil Instant MAtte Finish for Shiny Places.

When everyday hassles like heat, humidity, or stress send already overzealous oil glands into overdrive, skin faces a surplus of shine, looks dingy, feels totally tacky. Breakouts are apt to blossom. Nature’s master-mattifiers, including oil-foiling Silicates, astringent Winterbloom, plus calming Chinese Camphor, instantly zero in skin-spoiling oil and blot up greasy shine without overdrying. Creates a smooth, invisible finish that stays matte all day. There are no streaks on cheeks. And forehead, chin and nose show positively no glow.

HOW TO USE: Shake well. Apply under or over makeup.

CONCEAL IT! Don’t let shine spoil your day.  Stay on top of it with a mattifying touch up!

Try skin-calming absorbent loose powder like Jurlique’s Citrus Finishing Powder!

A silky translucent facial powder that refines the complexion and helps absorb excess facial oil to reduce shine. Leaves the skin fresh and radiant. Ideal for rebalancing oiliness.

BONUS: Expert Tips!

  • Do opt for powder blush and foundation instead of liquids or creams.
  • Don’t use a heavy moisturizer with shea or silicone, says dermatologist Fredric Brandt.  Gel-based formulas are best.
  • Do prevent shine by washing with a salicylic acid-based cleanser and using an astringent.

If you haven’t tried Origins ginger scent yet, this is a great starter set. I LOVE their ginger scent it’s warm and spicy and is perfect for fall and winter. Everything in the ginger line is amazing it smells so good, I like that it is so different from the majority of floral fragrances. My new sister-in-law just got a job at Origins, hmmmm I wonder if they have a family discount?
