Origins Drink Up

I go back and forth with Origins.  I’ve been both impressed and disappointed with their offerings.  After a particularly dry stretch of winter, I decided to try Origins Drink Up.

Water (Aqua), Rosa Damascena (Bulgarian Rose) Flower (Rose), Anthemis Nobilis (Roman Chamomile) Flower Water (Chamomile), Citrus Aurantium Amara (Orange) Flower Water (Bitter Orange), Capric/Caprylic Triglyceride, Prunus Armeniaca Kernel Oil (Apricot), Butylene Glycol, Squalane, PEG 100 Stearate, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate, Isopropyl Isostearate, Saccharide Isomerate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Polysorbate 60, Citrus Aurantium Amara (Orange) Oil (Bitter Orange), Ribes Nigrum (Black Currant) Seed Oil (Black Currant), Prunus Amygdalus Amara Kernel Oil (Bitter Almond), Rosa Damascena (Bulgarian Rose) Flower Oil (Rose), Cinnamomum Camphora (Camphor) Bark Oil (Shiu/Camphor), Citrus Aurantium Amara (Orange) Oil (Sweet Orange), Prunus Armeniaca Kernel Oil. (Apricot), Osmanthus Fragrans Flower Extract (Osmanthus Absolute), Linalool, Limonene, Oryza Sativa Bran Oil (Rice), Algae (Seaweed) Extract, Caffeine, Hypnea Musciformis Extract (Algae), Gigartina Stellata Extract (Algae), Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), Carbomer, Caprylyl Glycol, Acrylamides Copolymer, Hexylene Glycol, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Phenoxyethanol.

The blended, essential-oil infused mask acts as a 10 minute antidote to parched skin.  The product advises you to washes it off, but I don’t.  I just leave it to soak in luxuriously all night.  Next time, I look forward to exploring another version specifically meant for overnight use called Drink Up Intensive.Drink Up has the classic flowery-botanical Origins fragrance and creamy texture you’ve come to expect.  The generous 3.4 oz size for under $25 pleases me too.

Decent Deals

I trust you’ve kept your head above the recent flood of commercialism.  Now that the high waters have begun to recede, some really good bargains are surfacing.  This is a very opportune time to pick up a fresh new coat at a deep discount.  Avoid baby doll styles which are done, and invest in a belted style to carry you through next winter and beyond.

Chunky knits aren’t going anywhere.  Fair Isle was the major pattern statement this season for both sexes.  However, if you plan to invest serious money, an amazing solid color won’t look tired after a couple seasons.

An interesting pair of boots will refresh your look through spring.  Boots with opaque tights is the warm way to rock dresses in the winter.  You’ll stand out against the sea of boring pants.

Wanna dip your toe into the prestige pond?  Stores slash prices on gift sets after the holidays, and this provides the perfect opportunity to try several products from one brand.  Often a clearance gift set costs the same or less than a single full-priced item.  Caution, check product sizes: some sets contain a full-sized collection and others dwarfed versions.
