Better Late Than Never: Origins Friends & Family Sale

November 19, 2009
Origins Online

I’ve been meaning to share the Origins Friends & Family event with you forever but I just haven’t had the time, but I figured better late than ever, particularly because there’s one Origins products that I’m currently obsessed with!

So what is this must have? Origins Spot Remover® Acne blemish treatment gelicon ($12), my acne treatment of choice. When it comes to acne treatments, I’ve pretty much tried them all, and let me just say that Origins’ is the best. Not only does this treatment gel actually treat my acne, but it also dries quickly to form a nice seal over the blemish meaning I can wear makeup over this without having to wait countless hours for it to dry.

I’ll definitely be taking advantage of the Origins 25% off Friends & Family event and stocking up on these! Just enter code: NOVFF through November 19, 2009 (I know – I’m super late in posting this!) and receive 25% off your order, plus enjoy free standard shipping! What will you be getting?

Give Telinho a Home!

Origins ‘Telinho’ the White-Whiskered Spider Monkey ($15)

Meet Telinho, the white-whiskered spider monkey. He lives high in the treetops of Cristalino State Park, which is nestled within the species-rich forests of the Brazilian Amazon. He’s an amazing acrobat (rarely coming down to the ground) and likes to swing from tree to tree with his powerful tail, feeding, playing and socializing with other monkeys in his troop.

Unfortunately, the forests where he and his family live are under constant threat from cattle ranching and illegal logging, making Telinho one of only a few thousand white-whiskered spider monkeys remaining on Earth. Without these precious forests, he and other spider monkeys will continue to struggle to survive. And while local people are working hard to guard these important natural areas, they need our support to continue their efforts.

If you would like to help save white-whiskered spider monkeys and other forest wildlife in Brazil, please take Telinho home with you. Origins will donate $3 from the retail price of every Telinho sold to UK Charity Fauna & Flora International and its local partner the Cristalino Ecological Foundation.

Please help to give Telinho a home! How can you resist that sweet face? I plan to purchase several of these as holiday stocking stuffers.
