When I had my Origins facial last month, I was recommended a couple of items to try, that I hadn’t so added into my routine so far. So thought I would give them a mention, and my thoughts on them so far.
Plantscription™ Anti-ageing cleanser £25 150ml
I have used for many years, Cleanse and Polish by Liz Earle, but I was really interested in trying something else, so when I recommended Plantscription Anti-ageing cleanser, I actually thought it might suit my skin more as I am over 40 now.
This foaming cleanser utilizes potent plants to thoroughly wash away dirt, make-up and impurities in one simple step. The gentle cleansing system contains the breakthrough anti-aging ingredient, Anogeissus, along with Oat Protein and Jasmine Flowers to condition skin and preserve the vital moisture balance. Dead skin cells are quickly dislodged and released, encouraging a smooth, refreshed, more youthful-looking complexion. Soothing Aloe Vera calms and soothes the skin. Ideal for all skin types.
It contains Jasmine Flower, which helps to restore and protect skin’s protective moisture level. Also Oat Protein which acts as a moisturising and conditioning agent for the skin. Finally Aloe Leaf, which is so healing. It helps soothe, hydrate, soften and nourish skin.
You are advised to use it morning and night, which I have being doing and I am really happy with the results. My skin feels clean after using it, I haven’t had a breakouts, or sore skin. It does make my skin feel very, very, slightly tight afterwards, but once I have used the toner which is the next stage in the range, it doesn’t, and I am left with very smooth and soft skin.
Plantscription™ Anti-aging treatment lotion £25 150ml
Over the years I have tried several toners, and they have never really suited me, or have I really ‘got’ the idea of them. Always leaving my skin feel tight, leaving a residue and feeling of tightness.
Powered by Anogeissus and fortified with Jasmine Flowers, Caffeine and Aloe Leaf, this lightweight, moisture-rich treatment lotion has a milky texture that penetrates skin on contact to deliver softening and conditioning benefits, much like a skin cream. Smooth texture and a youthful radiance are restored and skin is prepped to receive the optimum anti-aging benefits from the Plantscription™ treatments that will follow.
Again, I applied this morning and evening, with a cotton pad this time.
This lotion felt soothing, and most definitely did not feel like it had an additional layer. However it acts as a moisture barrier while also working to hydrating, smoothing and boosting radiance.
Some of the results from women using both of these products :
Immediately after using:
- 94% of women reported feeling that their skin felt soft and had been gently cleansed, with all traces of makeup removed
- 92% reported that their skin appeared healthy-looking
- 90% felt their skin was more conditioned.
After 1 week:
- 94% reported their skin felt refreshed and radiant
- 88% claimed their skin felt renewed
I have been really pleased with the result from using both of these products, I would definitely purchase them again. I am actually surprised I have found a toner that suits my skin. Once I have completed both steps, I then use either my Origins Uplifting Cream or Plantscription Anti ageing cream and my skin definitely remains hydrated for longer. Hurrah for Origins!
