Skinsational Product of the Week: Origins White Tea Cleanser

Each week, I’ll highlight a “skinsational” skin care product that you absolutely need to know about. I mentioned in my last post how I struggle with dry skin throughout the winter. While Jergens was the solution for my hands, I consulted with the experts at Origins to find out what I was doing wrong on my face. Origins is one of my very favorite skin care lines. Not only are their products incredibly effective, but they are also ¬†affordable. They are an earth-friendly company that is committed to keeping all those hard-to-pronounce harsh chemicals out of their products, and I always find their employees to be very knowledgeable about products without being too pushy about buying.

Last time I went in for a consultation, the expert explained that the current moisturizer I was using was too harsh for the dry winter months. She instead suggested that I turn to the “A Perfect World” line and start my cleansing routine with the white tea cleanser ($20 for a 5 oz tube).¬†While this cleanser doesn’t foam up as much as I would like, it is very gentle while still giving you that clean, fresh sensation. Another thing I love about the A Perfect World line is that the white tea is an antioxidant, so I visualize myself putting a protective layer on my skin each morning before going out the door. While I love to start my morning with a cup of hazelnut, I am thinking about making to switch the white tea a couple mornings a week. According to this msnbc article, white tea is even more effective in fighting cancer than green tea! Now the question is what type to get. What do you think about Tazo’s White Cucumber? Mmmmmmm.
