Origins Plantscriptions Anti-aging Serum has been on my lust list since I first learned of this new range from the brand. With a constant rotation of serum and anti-aging products to trial though, I could never justify the wrinkle inducing €63 payout. That's why a huge Thanks goes to Debenhams for allowing me to take part in their VIP Panel to review several products from the range.
As with the rest of the Plantscriptions products, the serums key wonder ingredient is Anogeissus ( say it with meh 'An-Oh-Gay-Sis'), it's a tree from the Republic of Ghana don't you know that's been used for years in the treatment of wounds. Only natural that it would have kick ass effects in beauty and skin cell regeneration then wouldn't you say?
Origins recommend that you use this serum twice daily for optimum results, which I did for the first fortnight and the official trial but I've found that I don't actually need that much. Of course I'm codding myself on that, at a youthful 34, I don't have a huge need for so much product but the truth is I do have 'some' laughter lines making their appearance and the reason I've cut down on use is because I really don't want to finish this product any time soon. Saying that, with reduced usage I'm still finding delightful results.
Using the serum in the morning before my regular moisturiser I'm finding that my skin is slightly more taut than usual but not uncomfortably so, which immediately reduces the look of fine lines around my eyes. My skin tone is noticeably more even before I even begin to apply foundation, which has meant that I've gotten away with just a BB cream these past few days when time was tight in the mornings.
One other advantage of using this serum has been the change on my décolletage, I have slight sun damage i.e minimal fine lines but they're a lot less noticeable now. They weren't a huge deal in the first place but I can see that as being a huge plus should the fine skin on your chest be a problem area (I'm looking at you Deirdre Barlow).
Once more Origins have blown me away with a product, they're not cheap by any stretch of the imagination or the purse strings but Origins Plantscriptions Anti-aging Serum is one that will definitely be on my gift list for Elder Cherry come Christmas time and it's pretty much guaranteed to be on my self gift list too.
Have you tried any of the Plantscriptions range?
