About 6 years ago, I had a facial done and I fell in love with the lotion the woman used on my face. Of course, I had to take a bottle of it home with me. It cost me a pretty penny. And I almost refused until she talked me into it, reassuring me that it would last for months if I followed the instructions. She was right, it did last for a long time. And it would have lasted even longer had I not dropped the glass bottle onto the basin of our bathtub causing the precious liquid to splatter all over the place. I was so heartbroken, I actually tried to scrape the splatter up using a butter knife. Toby Joe finally intervened suggesting that I buy a new bottle. Well, I never did. And to this day neither one of us remember who made it.
But a year or two after that, we were at an Origins in SoHo. The woman behind the counter was really trying to sell me stuff. She came at me strong. (This is pretty typical of shops in SoHo. Usually I avoid all eye-contact.) But she was persistent. She suggested I try this amazing face serum. “It’s fantastic!” She told me. I gave in. Much to my pleasant surprise, it was a lot like the bottle I had smashed years earlier.
Dr. Andrew Weil created this Mega-Mushroom Face Serum for Origins and I am in love with it. I don’t buy it all that often. (It’s a pretty penny!) But it’s well worth the splurge. And it does last a really long time.
Also, for those who care about such things (as I do), Origins does not test on animals.
(This is a new series I’m starting about the stuff we buy and love. I am not getting paid to do this, nor is it being sent to me for free. This is just something I thought might be useful to folks.)
