I am a long time fan of Origins! They have an amazing recycling program where they will take any old cosmetics, from any company, and recycle them. MAC will take back cosmetics also, but only their own MAC brand.

Every few months I drop off my old deodorant containers, lipsticks, eye shadows, samples….you name it! In return I get to choose¬† a few free samples.

Last time I dropped off my recycleables, I picked up two new products that I’m crazy about!

The VitaZing moisturizer actually helps balance my skin tone. It adds a little shine that makes me look healthy and rested, not greasy.  It also has SPF 15, which I always look for in a daytime moisturizer.

I also bought their GinZing eye cream. These two creams really do make me look awake on days when I’m barely there!

Origins products are formulated without Parabens, Phthalates, Paraffin, DEA, Propylene Glycol, Mineral Oil, and they are NOT tested on animals.

They also do not contain animal ingredients (except cruelty-free honey and beeswax).

Their cartons are made from 80% Forest Stewardship Council certified paperboard and 50% post-consumer recycled fiber. These paperboards and cartons are made using wind power, and/or hydro-power.

Gather up your old cosmetics, take them to Origins and ask them for samples of these two products so you can see for yourself.

You can find these Origins products at my eStore!
