Origins Plantscription Youth-Renewing Power Night Cream

Review – Origins Plantscription Youth Renewing Nightcream

Origins Plantscription Youth-Renewing Power Night CreamOrigins’ Plantscription™ Youth-renewing night cream is made to deliver youth-renewing hydration and improve the appearance of fine, dry lines. Of course, this is all done overnight and it has an oil blend of pink rose and mandarin orange to refresh the senses. While I only tried out the sample size, it lasted for about 2 weeks or more and considering it’s Origins I was excited to try it out.

My Experience

The consistency Origins’ Plantscription™ Youth-renewing night cream is great. I found it to be very relaxing and a good match with the aroma oils that are mixed it. It wasn’t overwhelming at all and didn’t create any kind of irritation with my face.

However, that’s about the only good thing I can say about this cream. To be honest, it didn’t mix well with other creams and is best used alone. When used with other creams I tend to find my face to be a lot more oily in the morning or have a weird white residue form prior to sleeping. Even when I used the minimal amount I would have some kind of residue when mixed with other creams. I personally didn’t notice any improvements with the appearance of my skin but increased oiliness.

The description of Origins’ Plantscription™ Youth-renewing night cream says it’s okay for oily and combination skin but prior to purchasing I would recommend trying a sample size first. The full size is around $60 and it’s a lot to use to make your skin more oily!

Kiehl's Aromatic Blends: Patchouli & Fresh Rose

Review – Kiehl’s Aromatic Blend: Patchouli & Fresh Rose

Kiehl's Aromatic Blends: Patchouli & Fresh RoseI love Kiehl’s products and as part of my effort to try them all (one day) I tried their aromatic Aromatic Blend body wash Patchouli and Fresh Rose. This Aromatic Blend series had a few different scents but after looking at the Kiehl’s website it appears they have discontinued this series. It can still be found in Japan but in general it’s hard to find at the moment.

My Experience

At the moment, I’m still using this body wash but I am really looking forward to using it up and changing it! The smell of this body wash isn’t bad but for me it’s a little bit too aromatic. If you have asthma, I can see you having trouble breathing with this body wash so please be careful.

As far as the effectiveness of this body wash I would give it about 50%! After using it, your body doesn’t feel clean. It doesn’t dry out your skin but it doesn’t really make it feel nice either. The thing that bothered me most is it doesn’t lather well into bubble. For me, this is very important because I use an exfoliating wash cloth. Another thing that was a major mark against the wash was it froze… During the one cold day in November (about 5 degrees Celsius) everything in our shower room was perfectly fine. Except. Well… Except the Kiehl’s Aromatic Blend Body wash! It wasn’t completely frozen but it definitely had trouble coming out of the bottle. It’s something that when you’re tired, you definitely don’t want to deal with but the next day (when it was warmer) there were no problems.

Would I recommend this? No, I don’t think the Kiehl’s body wash line is worth trying at this point. Considering they took most of the Aromatic Blend washes off their website, I think it says something as well.

Where to Find

At this point, I can only find it in Japanese stores.

Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque

Review – Kiehl’s Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque

Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing MasqueKiehl’s Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque is one of my favorite Kiehl’s products. Kiehl’s is one of my favorite skin care brands from the United States! The company itself is over 165 years old so I would hope they know their stuff. Their products use many natural ingredients like Lavender, Squalane, Calendula, Caffeine and Vitamin C among others. They have a wide variety of products for all types of skin and even have a Men’s skin care line (which my husband loves).

Their Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque is:

  • Formulated with Amazonian White Clay to gently draw out oil, dirt and toxins that clog pores
  • The addition of Oatmeal and Aloe Vera helps to soothe

The overall rating on the Kiehl’s website is almost 5 hearts out of 5 with over 151 reviews. The cost is only $28 for 5 oz of mask. For me this is a pretty good deal, it’s lasted me for a few months already.

My Experience

This masque can last a long time if you use it sparingly. It’s very tempting to put a lot of the masque cream on your face at once but you really only need a little in order to cover your face completely. It takes about 15 min to dry or longer depending on how much you put on. Once it fully dries I found it very easy to wash off (in the shower) but it can get a bit messy if you’re not careful.

I found the masque to sting my face a little upon application but after removal my face was refreshed and looked nice and bright. My pores are also visibly reduced after one application which is great! I think it’s a great item to add to your skin care routine and considering the value I would definitely purchase it again.

Where to Purchase

Like all Kiehl’s products their main website or stores are great places to purchase or try out the products. Their rewards program is definitely worth joining if you’re a fan of Kiehl’s!

On the other hand, if you’re more of a Bloomingdale’s person, they also have this  Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Mask along with a wide range of Kiehl’s products.
