Review: Origins New Plantscription Anti-Aging Power Serum
Origins New Plantscription Anti-Aging Power Serum uses the power of ingredients from nature to “teach” skin how to utilise powerful ingredients from nature, in this case all 20 potent anti-aging plants from around the world, to address four major signs of aging by visibly reducing lines and wrinkles, lifting, firming and smoothing skin. How it essentially does this is by lifting and firming the skin’s upper layers, hence less lines and wrinkles. Think how a box spring gives support to a mattress.
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. This reformulated Plantscription serum offers a complement of support to skin’s structural complex, maintained by collagen, elastin and fibrillin while increasing epidermal volume to diminish appearance of fine lines and wrinkles from the outside in.
Some of the main ingredients:
- Pea Extract - One of the earliest cultivated crops dating back to ancient Egypt, the Pea Extract is sourced from Australia and is a natural well of amino acids and peptides.
- Crithmum Maritum - Sourced from the rocky shores of Norhtern France, it is known as the “retinol of the sea” for its properties that imitate the benefits of retinoids.
- Bamboo - Found in the deep bush of Australia, bamboo is the fastest growing grass on the world and a remarkable renewable resource.
- Indian Commiphora - Extracted from the bark of a plant indigenous to India, it is has been used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine for over 3000 years. Today, it helps re-densify the skin.
- Anogeissus - It is particularly into compounds able to stimulate the natural production of fibrillin.
In case you’re wondering what the other ingredients which is part of the 20 from around the world – Corn, Scutellaria Baicalensis, Micrococcus Lysate, Coffee, Sweet Almond Seed Extract, Cucumber, Laminaria Digitata, Centaurium Erythraea, Rosemary, Hyaluronic Acid, Pichia Cifferrii, Coffee Stem Cell, Raspberry Stem Cell, Soy Bean, Apple, Siegesbeckia, Palm and Coconut Glycerin.
New Plantscription Anti-Aging Power Serum promises that you will look younger in just 2 weeks, used twice daily. Since I use serums at night only, I used it for 4 weeks and I saw a difference.
I found that one pump was enough to cover my entire face and neck, then again it really does depend on how much you need, but a little goes a long way. And I just apply in an upward motion. The texture is light almost watery and my skin absorbs it like a dream with a comfortable feel after.
It does not take very long to notice a difference. My skin felt softer within the first few days of using it. After two weeks, my skin started feeling a bit more plump. I was looking for an obvious line on my face to compare before-after use, and the only one that’s always so obvious is my laugh line. I started noticing that it appeared a bit softer after three weeks. After 4 weeks (the equivalent of 2 weeks 2 times daily use) it looks a lot softer especially with my resting face on. On the whole my face just looks more awake, which I’m going to assume is what the lifting effect has done. The laugh line looks even less harsh with make up on.
Definitely a serum I highly recommend if you guys are looking for an anti-aging one. The Origins Plantscription range has a list of products if you want something to pair this with to get better results, just check them out at your nearest outlet.
