I am very rarely stuck - as in without beauty products, and when the time came to change moisturizer I had my next one lined up already and it had waited patiently on my bathroom shelf for more than a month to be used. Since I've spent a lot of time outdoors this summer (wearing sun screen of course!) I wanted to try a product that focused not only on hydrating but also on restoring the skin - so enter Origins Starting Over which is an age-erasing moisturizer. As with other Origins products it contains 100% natural ingredients, and in this case they are supposed to be so effective that Origins promotes the cream as "Nature's alternative to injections".
One of the main active ingredients in Starting Over is Mimosa, which apparently is great at stimulating the skin cells to produce more collagen and this protein is what helps to keep the skin strong and toned. As I write this I'm looking out at the massive Mimosa tree we have in front of the house and wonder if I could perhaps get some more use out of it, in addition to it looking pretty in the spring... ANYWAY, other ingredients are argan leaf, green algae and horse chest nut extract - which will help to protect your skin's structure, add antioxidants and smooth the skin texture. In short this moisturizer is packed with products to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, at the same time as it helps to rebuild the skin.
The moisturizer has a light and creamy texture that just melts into the skin in a flash, and makes it feel very smooth, velvety and firm. It
has the same delicious, sweet but fresh orange cream soda scent as the
Drink Up Intensive Overnight mask, yummy - I almost want to lick my fingers
every time I've used it...
I've noticed that my skin feels very toned and soft however it's not as deeply hydrated as I would ideally like it to be. The cream does a great job at nourishing, but when I use this as a day cream (on top of my KIKO Skin trainer serum) my skin feels a tiny tiny bit tight towards the end of the day, so I've started to apply a bit more of the cream than I usually do to see if this will fix it.
Overall, this cream is so refreshing to use and the amazing scent stays with you for a while so the next time you're looking for a product to give your nourishment, you might want to try this one. Whatever you're going back to after the summer, this lovely moisturizer will help your and your skin to start over - and why not get it from Origins online, and you'll get 2 samples as well as free delivery!
