Origins Mega-Bright Skin Tone Correcting Serum…Wow

I mentioned Origins Mega-Bright Skin Tone Correcting Serum in a recent video and received a few requests for a full review. I was of course happy to oblige :)

This products full title is Dr Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Bright Skin Tone Correcting Serum. What a mouthful. It’s designed to visibly reduce dark spots and discolorations and prevents them from reappearing.

I have been using the products for 5 weeks now and I love it!

The effects I noticed on my skin

  • Smoother and clearer skin (the most noticeable improvement I have come across from a product)
  • My skin looked noticeable more radiant and glowing
  • It left my skin less oily
  • It lightened my pregnancy mask marks from my last pregnany
  • It has lessened the discolouration from acne scarring on my chin
  • Makes my skin feel firmer
  • Left no residue or oiliness on my skin. It feels invisible.

Needless to say, I’m a fan. The bottle is 30ml. I apply one pump over my face morning and evening. Based on my rate or usage it might last 2 months. For people with greater discoloration you can apply up to four times a day. I would imagine you might only get a month out of the bottle in this instance.

The ingredients in this product works. I suspect this is not only down to the choice of ingredients but also the quantity and quality of them. I have heard a few people have issues with dryness using this product – this may be down to sensitivity tot ingredients perhaps? I have sensitive skin and I had absolutely no issues.

I’m more confident sans make-up but the best part is less concealer and a lighter coverage base. It’s worth it for the radiance and glow alone. As a testament to this I just recorded a video on my Everyday Foundation Routine and I use a tinted moisturiser. I never thought I would be in a position to put down the foundation bottle. I’m converted.

Now, the downside. It costs €62. I buy Origins products from Debenhams if anyone is wondering where they’re on sale here. The bottle is 30ml, it feels small but then again it’s a serum not a cream.

This product is well worth a try if you have any sort of discolouration. I am very happy with the results and have already sent a few friends to pick up a bottle. I always feel a little bad when I rave about an expensive product, but this is truly worth it.

Any Origins fans?

Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Advanced Face Serum

I got my greedy little hands on Origins Mushroom Relief Advanced Face Serum. I was excited since this is a product for relief of redness, sensitivity and reactivity – three words I associate with my skin.

Apparently it’s a clinically proven formula so I have high hopes for this one. Two positive observations on first glance is that it has a dark glass bottle which prevents light affecting the ingredients – no plastic contamination either. Also, it has a pump which means no oxygen reaches the product to affect active ingredients.

It contains a blend of Chaga, Cordyceps Mushrooms ans Sea Bukcthorn (I can see you nodding in understanding, just like me). It’s also made without parabens, phythalates, mineral oil, Paraffin, Patroleum etc. Basically no bad stuff.

According to the instructions I must apply the serum to a clean face morning and evening. Doesn’t sound like too much work so far.

There is no leaflet so I’m going to have to pay their website a visit for more information. I’m not entirely sure I should continue using other skin care products at the same time.

This bottle contains 50ml / 1.7 oz but also comes in a smaller 30ml bottle. The 50ml costs £50 and the 30ml £41. It is expensive but hopefully it’s worth the dosh. I’ll get back to you on that one.

On the label it states that Dr Weil donates all his after tax profits to the Weil Foundation. Nice.

Have you tried any Origins products?
