You know those girls with dewy, glowy, generally perfect skin, no matter what the weather? That is so not me right now. Whether it’s dryness in the winter or sunburns in the summer, I’ve always had to focus on taking care of my skin (and still regret it when I don’t!). Now that I’m 25, I’m finding that my skin doesn’t bounce back the way it used to and the same products I swore by in my late teens and early twenties no longer do the trick. Thankfully I am mostly past the acne-ridden days of my teenage years so I’m making sure to take extra good care of my skin now. If your skin is having a similar quarter life crisis, you’ll be happy to know that Origins has developed a product specifically for women who are past acne but too young for strong anti-aging formulas.

Origins sent me a box of goodies to try and I couldn’t wait to dig in. Good news: Origins products are formulated with natural and certified organic ingredients and 100% natural essential oils. I’ve yet to make the switch to all natural skincare and makeup (anyone else? eeeeek!) so this was definitely a step in the right direction. I’ve been using the Checks and Balances face wash with my Clarisonic at night and following it with the Night-A-Mins mineral-enriched renewal cream, a system that’s provided just the hydration my skin desperately needs this time of year. My favorite product though? The Origins Original Skin Renewal Serum. It’s a moisturizing serum that eliminates dullness, minimizes pores, and gives you a little extra glow. Two thumbs up!

Want to win an Origins giveaway box for yourself? Share your own quarter life crisis on Instagram and be sure to tag @originsusa and use hashtags #quarterlifecrisis and #sweeps for a chance to win. Origins will be selecting 250 winners (!!!) over the next few weeks so good luck!

  1. I’m trying to switch over to skin care with less gunk in it…not necessarily all natural to a fault, but definitely more organic. I’ve been using the Neutrogena Naturals face wash and moisturizer for 6 months or so and I really like it! Last weekend I was walking past Origins and they were doing free mini facials (yes please) and I loved the Renewal Serum, Starting Over Moisturizer, and Starting Over Eye Cream. I got little samples to try for a week or so and love it so far! I’ll probably wait to buy the moisturizer until I run out what I have, but the serum and eye cream are at the top of my list! There’s also a Free Gilt City coupon to take $30 off an $80 purchase at!!
