Origins Peace of Mind: Holiday Beauty Gift Guide

origins+peace+of+mind Origins Peace of Mind: Holiday Beauty Gift GuideHere’s one of my holiday pet peeves: you’re involved in a gift swap and the max amount you can spend is $10. Don’t cha just hate that? What inevitably ends up happening is you wind up buying some throwaway gift and you think to yourself, “I should have just put an Alexander Hamilton in an envelope and been done with it.”

Well, this year when you find yourself in that situation, I have the perfect gift pick: Origins Peace of Mind.

Peace of Mind is Origins’ original stress-buster. When the world closes in on you and your head feels a size too small, apply just two dabs and you’ll feel a tingling sensation as pressure, tension and tightness begin to melt away.

Any time I’ve got a lot on my mind and have trouble relaxing before bedtime, I dot this stuff on my temples, between my brows and on the nape of my neck. It’s like a creamy, liquid lullaby. So next time you have to buy a present and penny-pinch, give the gift every one wants and needs: a good night sleep.

Origins Peace of Mind is available at Macy’s and origins.com.
