  • Origins Spring Fever Body Souffle

    I used to wear the souffle and the fragrance about ten years ago (back when I couldn't really afford it, so I stopped) and sort of forgot about it. Origins' recent GWP inspired me to revisit their product line and I instantly rekindled my romance with this scent. The scent enough would be enough to make me keep buying this but the moisturizing qualities and texture of this souffle are impeccable as well. This is a must-have, particularly if you like clean, bright scents. I'm terrible at deciphering scents (what is a bergamot anyway? lol), but I tend not to like things that are musky or cloying and this is neither :)

  • Origins Modern Friction

    Origins Modern Friction

    Dull Skin Rejuvenator

    This is now my favorite scrub (it's something between a scrub and a true microdermabrasion treatment). I have dry skin in a dry climate and this, in combination with A Perfect World serum and moisturizer have made my rough dull skin become soft and glowing again. I bought this in the LE Go Perfect Set which included a 4oz. Modern Friction (in a TUBE! yay! not sure why they can't do that for the full size), as well as smaller versions of Perfect World serum and Checks and Balances face wash (the least exciting part of the set). Modern Friction has a sort of gluey consistency which was new for me, but otherwise it works like any other scrub. I usually do this before a shower because it's easier to remove that way (and I'm always tempted to do it daily even though it says 2-3 times a week because I end up feeling so good afterward). I've been using this skincare combination for about a week and a half now and my skin is noticeably improved.

  • Mally Believable Bronzer Skin Warming Powder Trio
    10.0

    Mally Believable Bronzer Skin Warming Powder Trio

    Finally... a bronzer that's natural on light skin!

    In the 18 years that I have been wearing makeup, this is the very first bronzer that actually does what it's supposed to on me. I use the Golden Tan and it never ever looks fake, orangey or obvious on me. Just glowy and perfect. The bronzer itself looks dark in the compact IMO but goes on perfectly sheer and buildable. I never find myself going back over it with my fingers or a brush to try to blend more - it just goes on correctly if you apply it right. The highlighter is one of the few highlighters I've used that isn't glittery and doesn't worsen the look of the dry skin on my cheeks. Just shimmery, subtle goodness. The blush was the only part of this that I found a bit disappointing - very little color payoff unless you pack it on, but I have other blushes that also work very well on top of this, so it makes no difference to me. The bronzer and highlighter are what make the product for me and I would pay the current price even if it just included those two products. I think there are a lot of really cool things in Mally's line, but it won't get its fair shake until it expands offerings and becomes available on a more widespread basis.
