A Quarter-Life Crisis Skincare Fix From Origins

As much as beauty gurus are always telling you that the best weapon in the war against aging is prevention, there don't seem to really be any products on the market designed for ladies in their late twenties / early thirties. There are plenty of goodies for acne-prone teenage skin and products with a punch for more mature skin but what about the in-betweeners? How are we supposed to get a leg up on this anti-aging business if all the products out there are too harsh for our still somewhat youthful skin? At a time when our skin is changing and little lines that weren't there yesterday are starting to appear, what can we use to keep the panic under control? Well, Origins has a new serum to keep your quarter-life crisis in check and make the transition a bit easier.

My lovely friend Emily gifted me with the Origins Original Skin Renewal Serum with Willowherb for my 27th birthday and I've been loving it ever since. It's specifically designed for women in their twenties and thirties whose skin isn't bouncing back from late nights, stress and sun the way it used to. It has a gel-like consistency that I really wasn't expecting but absolutely adore! There's no sticky, oily feeling to worry about and the product absorbs very quickly. Once I've rubbed this on, my skin feels incredibly smooth and soft and even looks a bit brighter. I've been using this mostly at night as my moisturizing step but today I even threw it on in the morning before putting on my makeup (which I never thought I'd be able to do with a serum on my oily skin). The smooth, perfecting feeling it gives almost makes it feel a bit like a hydrating primer. Plus, with an amazing grapefruit scent it's just an all around joy to put on.

This product has completely overhauled my perception of what a serum is supposed to be. It feels light and hydrating and I don't wake up with an oily mess on my face. If you're looking to start taking better care of your skin but are a bit wary of heavy duty wrinkle creams, this is definitely one for you to try.
