My First Time: Trying Origins A Perfect World Skincare Line

In a perfect world, my coffee would be ready right before I woke up every morning. In a perfect world, eating copious amounts of ice cream would never make you fat. In my perfect world, my skin would never age.

Too bad these things only exist in dreams and fantasies.

Luckily, Origins has created a skincare line called A Perfect World™ that is targeted towards prevention from the signs of aging — at least answering one of my prayers.

If you know my age, you’re probably thinking I’m crazy right about now. Why is a 24-year old so obsessed with anti-aging products? Well, here’s something that you may not know: once you begin to show signs of aging, you can’t revert that process. Shocking right?! Okay, probably not really if you know that time travel isn’t actually plausible, but the truth of the matter is still simple. There are so many products these days that claim to turn back the clock and regress the signs of aging, but unfortunately that’s not really possible once you age and begin to loose natural collagen and elastin in your skin. The only real way to fight the signs of aging is to take preventative measures (do you get why I’m so obsessed with this skincare line now?)

After testing out A Perfect World™ for a week, I thought I would give you a mini review on each product!

A PERFECT WORLD™ ANTIOXIDANT CLEANSER WITH WHITE TEA

Who knew a cleanser could smell so good? The main ingredient in this skincare line is silver tip white tea, which contains beneficial antioxidants for the skin. This cleanser is also super creamy, so that it doesn’t strip away your skin’s natural essential oils, literally keeping you young and fresh.

A PERFECT WORLD™ SPF 40 AGE-DEFENSE MOISTURIZER WITH WHITE TEA

The great part about this line is that it’s made for all skin types. Since I have a combination skin type (who knew that dry cheeks and an oily T zone would cause me so much grief?) it’s pretty hard to find a moisturizer that can make my skin feel supple, but isn’t too heavy. This however, totally did the trick in evening my skin tone out. BIG BONUS: This product has an SPF 40 in it (aka saving me from the sun, which increases the visibility of aging).

A PERFECT WORLD™ AGE-DEFENSE TREATMENT LOTION WITH WHITE TEA

This product is super light and refreshing on the skin, yet soaks in very quickly. There’s nothing worse than when you’re in a rush for work and you’re waiting for your products to sink in. The best part about this treatment lotion is that it prepares your skin to make your other anti-aging products work better. You already had me at anti-aging — but making the rest of this line work better?! That sounds pretty perfect to me.

A PERFECT WORLD™ AGE-DEFENSE EYE CREAM WITH SPF 20

Last, but not least, is my personal fave product of the whole line — say hello to your new favourite eye cream! Not only is it super moisturizing (I’m talking about full-day coverage, so that your powder doesn’t crease and make you look older), but it also has SPF in it! Talk about mega sun protection.

Even though my skin may not be perfect, at least I know that by using this line, I’m taking care of my future skincare aging fears before they even happen! Thanks so much to the wonderful people at Origins for introducing me to A Perfect World™  and I can’t wait to see the anti-aging wonders it’ll do for my skin.

With love,

  2. My mom has been using this line for years and loves it. She found it challenging to purchase but I’ll have to pass it on that she can purchase it online! She thought she could only do it on cruises =P. I need to start using some anti-aging stuff, thirty is not too far for me now!
