Look and feel younger with Origins Starting Over

Mom, how old are you?

Thirty” I say.

WOW!” she says, with the “o” drawn out.

So, is that “wow” a “wow, mom, you look so young” or “wow, mom, that’s so old“? I remember when I was young and my thirty year old aunts and uncles seemed so old. Even now at thirty I just don’t feel as old as I felt my aunts and uncles were at thirty.

Even if I don’t feel like I’m getting older, I need to remember that my skin is getting older and, if I want to keep looking as young as I feel, then I need to be proactive with my skincare! A product that I recently had the opportunity to try and am falling in love with is the NEW Starting Over™ Age-erasing moisturizer from Origins.

StartingOver l

Origins is a skincare company who believes in creating high-performance natural skincare through the combination of potent plants, organic ingredients and 100% natural essential oils. They create everything from scrubs and moisturizers to makeup and fragrances. And they even have a line dedicated to men!

origins_recycleOrigins not only believes in taking care of your skin but also taking care of the planet! The Return to Origins Recycling Program, the first of it’s kind in the cosmetic industry, allows you to return your empty cosmetic tubes, bottles and jars (regardless of brand) to Origins to be recycled or used for energy recovery! Regardless of the brand!!! And, to thank you for joining in their efforts to keep cosmetic packaging out of landfills, Origins will treat you to a free sample of Origins high-performance skincare products!!!

Their commitment alone to the environment makes me really respect their company, but I actually really like the products, too! The Starting Over™ Age-erasing moisturizer with Mimosa is a great light-weight moisturizer that has left my combination skin feeling great! The tough thing with combination skin is that I need a moisturizer that really moisturizes my dry areas but doesn’t over moisturize my oily areas. I know, I’m so complicated. But Origins Starting Over™ does that! And I love it!!

Now, as a quick note, while they say that 94% of those using Starting Over™ Age-erasing moisturizer with Mimosa saw a significant reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles, I cannot attest to that. I’ve only been using the moisturizer for a few weeks but I do feel like my skin feels refreshed and am going to continue to use it. Who knows, maybe I’ll be back telling you that my daughter no longer thinks I look old!

  1. jenny martin says

    Well–I wish I washed my face more often–really need to start taking care, since I am getting to close to the big 40

  2. says

    My biggest concerns are sun and hormones. The sun makes my skin so dry and I burn very easily. The hormones mean the whole world can tell when I have my period because I break out the day before it starts and the acne lasts until about 2 days after it ends.

  3. says

    I looooove Origins products! Skin issues? Yeah…wrinkles, weird little bumps that weren’t there before kids, different surfaces (oily/dry) on different parts of my face. You name it!

  4. Krista says

    I’m approaching the big “40” and live in an arid climate. I would love to start fighting those wrinkles sooner rather than later.

  5. says

    I have some hyperpigmentation (which I learned from a makeover at Origins — they do that kind of gathering for your friends, too) — and some general dulling of my skin. I love Origins stuff and would love to win this giveaway!

  6. Michele Anne says

    Let’s just say I won’t say how old I am…..but I wouldl like to look younger….sign me up….

  7. Samantha says

    I am looking for a light moisturizer for the summer. I don’t want to dry out but I hate sweating after I put on a moisturizer.

  8. mary simonton says

    i have really dry flaky skin but oily around my nose and some lotions break me out would love to win this and try it out thanks

  9. says

    My biggest issue is keeping my skin young. I have great genes but I want to help those along. I give myself a facial every week, moisturize every night and day…however I’d love to try new products as well.

  10. mmm619 says

    I recently came across this moisturizer and am planning to try it once I finish my current bottle. As I enter my mid-thirties, I am starting to worry about wrinkles and how the many years of sun are going to impact my skin later in life. Yikes!

  11. Donna C. says

    My biggest concern is extremely dry skin. I am concerned that it will just get worse when summer comes

  12. Rebecca says

    I worry about wrinkles! I can see some fine lines starting to form and am trying to figure out what to do to prevent them from getting worse!

  13. says

    I definitely need help with my skin I’m really old, I’m 41, lol. When I read your artical you made 30 sound so OLD, but I guess that was to promote this cream. It sounds fabulous n I’m into anything willing to help our planet. I am subscribed and all that other good stuff, so how do I get a free sample to try it out? :-). Tata, chat soon.

  14. says

    Not really worried at the moment…but always looking for things to keep my skin healthy.
    ( I’d like to keep “not being worried” for some time to come ..LOL)

    Have a Happy Easet!

  15. Jen says

    Just general aging. I’ve been good about sunscreen the last fifteen years or so, but as a yout’, I was all about the sun-worshipping.

  16. Marlena U. says

    My biggest skin care issue right now is thanks to pregancy…dry and blotchy skin with dark circles under my eyes! HELP!!!

  17. Jessica T says

    My biggest problem is I’m in my 30s and I”m breaking out more than whenI was in my teens! Grrrr!

  18. says

    I already use an Origins moisturizer, but as my age starts to catch up with me, maybe I need to try something different. I have always been happy with Origins products in the past.

  19. Cee says

    My biggest problem right now is acne, surprisingly. After I had my daughter, I started to break out more, and I would love to be able to manage it. I’ve never had a problem with breakouts before –not even as a teenager– so it’s very surprising!

  20. Stephanie V. says

    worried? all of the above since turning 40 – wrinkles, loss of elasticity, dry flaky skin, dull skin

  21. Carol Harrity says

    As I have aged, my skin has become a problem. Hard bumps and broken veins to name just a few of my problems. I would love to try Origins and see what it can do for my skin.

  22. cathiem says

    I like the sun too much. I live by the beach and it is hard to stay out of the sun. My age 54 does not help.

  23. Cheryl says

    My face is always so dry, this would be perfect for that. I’m always looking for organic moisturizers that actually work. Thanks!

  24. Catherine says

    I’m worried that this dry Colorado air, plus the extra sun I get living here, a mile closer to it, is sucking all the life and moisture out of my skin.

  25. Emmy says

    My biggest issue is something new for me, chapped-flaky lips. Not sure how it happened, since I always have something on my lips. Looks horrible!

  26. Joannie says

    Wrinkles, wrinkles, wrinkles!!
    Where did they come from?
    Why do they stay?
    How do I get them to go away??

  27. says

    I need a good moisturizer with spf in it for all year round. I am allergic to castor oil, which is many body and face lotions, so I have a hard time finding a good one, thanks!

  28. Amanda says

    ever since i had my daughter my skin is just dry and useless. i try and fix it daily, but nothing seems to work. i have always loved origins, but never been anywhere that one is available.

  29. Beth E. says

    My face is very dry. Also I love that Origins uses natural ingredients. That is very important to me.

  30. says

    My biggest skincare issue right now, after suncare (of course) is dullness. I just want to breath some “life” onto my face, if that makes any sense.

  31. S. carter says

    My biggest concern right now is that I have both Rosacea and Psoriasis. Hard to ever get my skin to look great.

  32. celia says

    My concern right now it that I am in the middle of the road where I am starting to worry about preventing wrinkles but still have breakouts!

  33. Charlene Kuser says

    I am worried about wrinkles and crows feet.I would love to try this nice product from Origins

  34. Becky says

    I have a scar on my face, and I try to keep it moisturized.. This sounds perfect!


  35. corky says

    Since I am grandma but NOT that old, I still want to look good for grandpa. Yes there are wrinkles but so what. they are smile lines. Just a touch of foundation – not too bad.
