Eye Doctor Moisture Care | Origins

Sunday, September 30, 2018

Overall, My skin has been drier than normal. I have been getting dry/dehydrated patches on my forehead and around my nose. I have also notice that my eyes have been dryer as well. Concealer isn’t going on as smooth as it used to. I went on the hunt for an eye cream that was strictly for moisturizing. I didn’t want to worry about anti-aging or anything until I fixed the dryness, if it had anti-aging that was a bonus. I also wanted something that was more on the cleaner side, no harsh chemicals and as natural as possible. Natural products are more important to me when it comes to my eye area than any other part of my face.

After reading a ton of reviews, I decided to try the Origins Eye Doctor Moisture Care. I placed an order at Sephora, and eagerly awaited my new eye cream. The Origins Eye Doctor Moisture Care eye cream claims to counter crow’s feet, de-pouf puffs, and fade dark shadows. Formulated with Cucumber, Rosemary, and Ginseng to cool, sooth, and energize around the eyes. It also has Green tea extract to help fight off free radical damage. The Origins Eye Doctor has the Clean at Sephora seal.

The Clean at Sephora seal means that products are formulated without: “Sulfates SLS and SLES, parabens, formaldehydes, formaldehyde-releasing agents, phthalates, mineral oil, retinyl palmitate, oxybenzone, coal tar, hydroquinone, Triclosan, Triclocarban. All skincare, hair, and makeup brands with the Clean Seal have less than one percent of synthetic fragrances.” — quoted directly on Sephora’s website.

I wanted to give the product a proper trial, so I waited until I finished the pot. My eyes were a lot less dry while using the Origins Eye Doctor, and I noticed my makeup going on smoother. While the Origins claimed it also countered crow’s feet, de-poufs and fades dark shadows, that wasn’t a deciding factor for me. I don’t have puffy under-eyes, so I can’t say if it made a difference there. However, I did notice some changes in the dark shadows under my eyes. Since I have run out of the product, the area around my eye is beginning to become dry again, I am definitely going to order more!


Top 4 New Beauty Additions

Sunday, September 9, 2018

I recently picked up some new products. I have had the chance to try them out and I am really loving them so far. While these are my top products out of all the ones I've tried lately, I did decide to do a top 4 instead of a top 5 because of how well they all go together. I don't know how it happened, but my favorites are all different shades of green! 

Gourmand EDP Fragrance in 'The Matcha': I picked this up on a whim in Urban Outfitters. I don't remember what I went in for, only that I couldn't find it. I fell in love with the bottles of these fragrances when I first saw them. I wanted to like a scent so bad and as I was smelling them I was getting bummed that none of them seemed like my kind of fragrance. Until I picked up 'The Matcha', with notes of green tea, freesia, and amber, it is the perfect all round fragrance for me!

MARIO BADESCU Special Hand Cream with Vitamin E: I have the driest hands ever. No matter what I do, they are always insanely dry. I knew I wanted a new hand cream that had Vitamin E in it, so I picked up this one to try. It not only has the Vitamin E I was looking for, but it also is packed full of antioxidants and Vitamin A.  I'm really loving it so far. I think it could be a bit more moisturizing, but it works for me for now.

Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kind Matcha + Apple Replenishing Superfood Shampoo and Kale + Apple Replenishing Superfood Conditioner: I found these when looking through the 'Clean at Sephora' section. I wanted something a bit better for my hair and something without a bunch of chemicals. The shampoo doesn't lather as much as I would like, but the smell makes up for it. The shampoo is packed with matcha and apple to help nourish your hair without stripping it. For the conditioner, I noticed a little bit goes a lot further than the shampoo. The conditioner has kale and apple to nourish and hydrate.
