Origins Plantscription: The Modern V and Perfect Heart-Shape Face

I may not be the most up-to-date beauty blogger to know what’s that latest makeup trend right now but I do know what’s bubbling in the skincare industry – anti-aging products. Think that anti-aging skincare products is reserved mainly for older and mature women? That is one of the biggest misconceptions in the world of skincare. In fact, you should start to protect and plump up your skin with good quality skincare products in your twenties before the skin starts to sag and fine lines to appear. But, of course, for our skin type, you might want to use certain anti-aging products which are not too rich for the skin and is suitable for all skin types.

So, what’s the in-thing right now? Lifting creams that promises to carve out that v-shaped jaw line which makes your face appear slimmer and sharper. I’ve reviewed several similar skincare products before and they all did a pretty great job in creating that v-shape faced but there are often too rich and creamy in texture so I tend to use it only sparingly. If I use it across my whole face, I would suffer from major breakouts a few days later. And to reverse this skin condition, I had to see my facial therapist who would perform a major facial extraction to clear all the clogged pores. Ouch!

Okay, let’s hope that it wouldn’t happen again with Origins Plantscription Powerful lifting cream. This cutting edge light-textured cream with Anogeissus and Commiphora lifts up the skin to help create the illusion of the modern V heart-shaped face. This is one new ORIGINS product in the Plantscription anti-aging series that have been highly anticipated by the fans of Origins!

However, do note that this cream only ‘lifts’ and not ‘slims’ the face. It’s different from face slimming products.

What does this product does for you?
– Help visibly redefine contours
– Restore lost volume and infuse skin with age-correcting moisture
– Help create the illusion of modern V – the new must-have heart-shaped face!

The Two Powerful Plant Ingredients

This powerful ingredient,found in the tree leaves and bark, is used as a natural wound healer by the local tribes in The Republic of Ghana, West Africa.
The other main ingredient in the formula is Indian Commiphora that helps to increase the skin’s natural production of Hyaluronic acid that supports natural collagen production.

Plumps and Firms up My Skin

It’s a cream-based product but it doesn’t feel too rich or sticky when applied on the skin. It carries the signature scent of Origins product – a blend of bergamot and other citrus-smelling essential oils smells really refreshing. I have been using it for about two weeks and I noticed how plump up and firm the skin feels, especially around my cheek and chin area. I didn’t notice any significant lifting effects on my skin yet ( or perhaps I can’t tell the difference unless I use a machine to measure the firmness of my skin!) but I do notice the increase in moisture levels of my skin. This difference is brought about by just simply using a small dollop of the product with a gentle upward motion massage strokes.

Up,up,up! Who wants saggy skin, anyway? 

Besides using such lifting creams, you will also need to put in effort in massaging your skin to maintain that youthful look!
