My love of Origins really is no secret, I actually added up this morning how many times I had written about their products, and its an incredible 17 times. I don’t think there has ever been a skincare range that I have ever used, that I’ve loved as much. There are so many products, designed for many different skin types. My favourite, and the one I have written about the most is the Plantscription range. It is anti-aging, and as I’m now 43 (blimey, am I really) it’s the perfect one for me. I have my favourite products, that I go back to time and time again (which reminds me, I must buy some more modern friction) however I love trying new things too from Origins.
Origins are always striving for perfection, and discovering new things, so It’s no surprise that they don’t rest on their laurels, and this is why they have reformulated the Plantscription™ Anti-Aging Power Serum. In conjunction with this, I popped into my local House Of Frazer for a facial to try the new serum, amongst the other products above. I had a gorgeously relaxing facial, specially devised by the celebrity facialist Marie Reynolds. Nichola (my favourite Origins consultant) expertly gave me my facial, whilst running through the products that she was using. I love my Nottingham House of Fraser, I can’t recommend it enough. If you don’t live in my area, and you want to try out the products, please ring your local Origins counter. They offer free and heavily discounted facials throughout the year, and its a great way of learning more about the products, what suits you, and the brand.
I have been using the Origins new Plantscription™ Anti-Aging Power Serum for nearly two weeks now, applying it after my usual cleanser.
With more than 20 years of research and innovation, Origins is a leader in harnessing the power of nature through its discovery and use of potent ingredients that deliver advanced skincare results. Building on its globally-acclaimed, award-winning Plantscription™ Anti-aging serum which supported skin’s structural architecture with clinically proven anti-ageing results, Origins is introducing new Plantscription™ Anti-aging power serum featuring an elevated formula that uses progressive biomimetic technology targeting skin’s epidermis. The new serum “teaches” skin how to utilise powerful ingredients from nature to address four major signs of ageing by visibly reducing lines and wrinkles, lifting, firming and smoothing skin.
I have noticed a difference, the overall softness of my skin had definitely improved, and I think the lines around my eyes have decreased too. A few people have asked me if I’ve done something different. So this is one I am definitely sticking with! Here is some of the stats :
In ex vivo testing, Plantscription™ anti-aging power serum HA complex increased
epidermal volume by 46% in six days
In clinical tests using Plantscription™ Anti-aging power serum:
- 75% of panelists showed an improvement in the appearance of Lines & Wrinkles in 2 weeks
- 88% of panelists showed an improvement in the appearance of Lines & Wrinkles in 4 weeks
- 79% of panelists showed an improvement in the appearance of Nasolabial Lines in 8 weeks
Origins has found that Hyaluronic Acid (HA), the compound in skin that supports skin’s natural moisture reserve adds a layer of density to skin providing the face with a plump, full and youthful appearance. The epidermis holds nearly 50% of the body’s HA and with age natural production slows, decreasing skin’s density and volume, ultimately leading to fine lines and wrinkles.** Using Pea Extract, Crithmum Maritum and Bamboo Origins developed the new biomimetic HA complex to create a pathway in the skin, which was proven to increase skin’s epidermal volume in ex vivo testing. After scouring the earth’s five continents and fingerprinting thousands of ingredients, Origins scientists developed the HA complex including these plant actives to replicate their characteristics for helping to reverse visible signs of aging:
Pea Extract is a natural well of amino acids and peptides
Crithmum Maritum is known for its properties that imitate the benefits of retinoids
Bamboo is the fastest growing grass in the world and is a remarkable renewable resource
It’s really easy to apply, and sinks in very well. Use it daily, and apply to the face in an upward motion.
