Today I went out to work, shiny like a grease ball. Singapore has been an oven these past few days. Actually, Singapore has always been hot. Our climate is classified as Tropical Rainforest Climate. That means, we are blessed with high humidity.
Basically clogged pores are a norm unless you are blessed with amazing genes. Good for you!
For many years, I used Cetaphil because I wanted a mild cleanser for my acne prone skin. I would exfoliate my skin twice a week using my Clarisonic. I was still greasing up. I was still breaking out like a teenager going through puberty.
I avoided using moisturer. I hated the sticky and oily feeling that comes with it. Many oil-free and water based moisturisers didn't work for me.
It wasn't until one day when I was looking for products to prepare my skin for my wedding (gotta thank it though!) when I chanced upon Origins.I wanted products that can brighten my skin (seri pengantin, they say).
I tried the trial pack and I was hooked.
I ended up buying the full sized products and spending a bomb but it was well worth it. I finally met the moisturiser of my dreams. My skin felt hydrated and it doesn't leave a sticky or oily residue. It is perfect for Singapore's erratic weather.
My favourite product from this range is actually the skin illuminating serum. It makes my skin soft, supple and radiant. It is also the most expensive item.
After using Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins for over a year, it has tremendously helped my skin. My skin cleared and my only breakouts are hormonal. If I do breakout, my skin clears in about three days. My skin is very thankful I decided to spend that much money on it.
I would recommend you to try something from Origins. If you're a member, even better! You collect points and will be able to redeem full sized products.
