When I get stressed and start sleeping less, the first thing to show it is my face. My skin gets dry and just looks generally… haggard. So I was really excited to try the new Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins Mineral-enriched oil-free renewal cream. (Try saying that five times fast!) The moisturizer was specially formulated to help recharge your skin as you sleep so that you’ll wake up to brighter, healthier skin in the morning. (I love when I can get results and sleep at the same time. If only I could make that happen at the gym…)
I absolutely love the scent of the cream – it’s a mix of orange and vanilla and it smells amazing. Seriously, seriously amazing (and totally relaxing). Once you put it on, the moisturizer goes into effect and its time-released formula keeps it working throughout the night. It’s packed with vitamins and minerals and a resurfacing ingredient that helps to turn over the dry and flaky layers of your skin so that when you wake up, your skin will be smoother and more radiant. (In studies, a whopping 98% of women told Origins that after regular use, their skin was renewed and refreshed. Impressive, right?)
After using it for about a month, I have to say that I agree with them. I’m terrible at getting a full eight hours of sleep (five or six hours is more the norm for me) but after I started using the High Potency Night-A-Mins, it started to look much more well-rested, softer, and smoother. It’s dewier and healthier looking, which makes me so happy when I look in the mirror. I tested out the oil-free version, but there’s also a regular version available, so you can pick the one that’s best for your skin type.
