Ivory Aloe Body Wash - Review

Today I am doing a quick review on this Ivory Aloe body wash. There was a time I was really into different body washes. Not that I'm not anymore, it's just I'm not that picky with them anymore. Maybe it'll change once it goes into winter and my skin gets dry but during summer, any body wash would work basically. Now there was a time that I felt like any body wash I would use, it either wouldn't lather enough, moisturize enough or even wash off nicely. So there was something wrong with ever body wash I used. Then I used this one and at first I was like Oh no, this is a pretty big bottle and if I don't like it again, I would just give up on body washes in general. hahaha....anyway, I used this and as you might have guessed, I really liked it.

It has a soft fresh smell and it didn't get boring or annoying after a while like others do for me. It has a milky colour but thick consistency, lathers really well, moisturizes and hydrates the skin, but it doesn't leave a slippery feeling on the skin like some others would do. It leaves my skin smooth and hydrated and I just love it. I searched and saw that there are other different scents I guess or versions from the aloe one I have. It would be interesting to use the other ones and see if they are different or all the Ivory body washes are amazing.

Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Moisturizer & Refreshing Eye Cream - Review

I am BACK with another skincare review. I've been into skincare a lot lately so I've been trying out new products.

I have always wanted to try out the origins skincare line and I have two face masks from them which I love. So as always, since my skin is sensitive to new products, I got a sample of these two one day when I was shopping at Sephora (again as always haha) and lucky enough at the checkout I had more than enough points to get their big reward and it was a box with different origin products including these two. So i had these two pretty big jars AND the samples haha so I had more that enough of these two to try out and have an opinion on them and of course write a review for you all.
I really like the face moisturizer. It`s light weight with a gel like consistency. It doesn't feel greasy and it absorbs quickly. It moisturizes really well and smells and feels refreshing on the skin. I actually really like it. I just feel like it didn't do anything spectacular for my skin for it to stand out compared to other moisturizers I have tried before. Don't get me wrong, it is a really nice moisturizer and it was nice to try it out and get the feel for the product, but I just don't think I would pay over thirty bucks for it.

Now the eye cream I LOVE! I've seen actual change when using this product and I was really impressed. It has sort of pink-ish salmon sort of tint to it but it doesn't cover anything like concealer so let's not get carried away haha. It also has a slight shimmer or glow.. whatever you want to call it. It`s not glitter or anything that obvious but it definitely helps to brighten my under eye a little bit.

I know I said I've seen actual change with this eye cream and I absolutely have. It was one of the not so many mornings where I woke up with red puffy eyes because I had cried the night before. I did my "morning ritual" and used this eye cream under my eyes and also on my eyelids. I didn't really think about this until I looked into the mirror again and my eyes looked normal. Like I had dreamed about my eyes looking puffy. I was really shocked and also impressed. Now I don't know how long it took for it to work because I wasn't really expecting anything but the result was pretty amazing.

The ingredients include coffee beans so I'm pretty sure the caffeine is what energized and helped the puffiness and redness.

Overall, I really enjoyed both of these products. The face moisturizer I probably wont repurchase. The eye cream is a definite repurchase from me. It's actually on my next Sephora shopping list.

Have you tried anything from Origins? What are your thoughts on it?

Lots of love,
