Get your Plantscription filled and fill in those fine lines!
It’s 10:30 pm on a weeknight. I’m attempting to be a “good girl” and go to bed at a reasonable hour. I wash my face and look up into the bathroom mirror. Gasp! Is that a hint of a blossoming wrinkle? And isn’t everything looking a little less firm? Cue the nightly inspection.
It’s tough getting older, and the invention of magnifying mirrors has only made it worse. In an attempt to maintain my youthful looks I’ve started considering the big guns like prescription creams or retinoids, but I’d like to avoid this route if at all possible.
Thankfully Origins, an eco-friendly favorite here at wht, has heard my plea. Well known for their cult favorite creams and plant-derived potions, Origins has launched their latest anti-aging fighter, Plantscription Anti-Aging Serum and I can testify that it packs a real punch!
The key appears to be the use of African Anogeissus, a tree native to the Republic of Ghana. Compounds in the bark of the tree stimulate the production of fibrillin, which supports skin structure. Additionally, rosemary extract and siegesbeckia (a shrub native to Asia) support collagen and elastin production.
Lightweight and fast absorbing, Plantscription is a lovely addition to my daily routine. It has a faintly fruity smell (almost like fruit loops) but it dissipates quickly. The finish is smooth and non-tacky and it doesn’t interact strangely with moisturizer or foundation.
A tiny bit of Plantscription does the trick- just one or two pumps– using too much and attempting to rub it in further causes the serum to pill up on the face. So how well does it work?
Like 83% of consumers tested, I think my skin has a more youthful appearance. In clinical studies there was a 51% reduction in fine lines and wrinkles after just 4 weeks (57% overall reduction in lines and wrinkles after 12 weeks) and I’m pleased to say that MY experience is in agreement! Hooray for delivering on the promises of the packaging.
The most noticeable change is my eye area. The fine lines between my brows are practically gone, and the skin below my eyes is firmer. You know how concealer can settle into those tiny lines under your eyes? Not such a big deal after using Plantscription for four weeks, as those lines have filled out dramatically.
Designed to be used twice-daily, Plantscription anti-aging serum is a gentle yet highly effective alternative to retinoids and their nasty side effects. The price is on the higher side ($55 for 1 oz), but when compared to the price of prescriptions and a trip to the dermatologist, it’s a steal! Not to mention, that 1 oz will last a long time.
• Visible results! My fine lines are faded and skin is firmer.
• Soft, fruity scent.
• Good absorption without any tacky residue.
• Formula based on the powerful plant Anogeissus.
• Made with natural and certified organic ingredients.
• Made without parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, PABA and paraffin.
• Made without any animal ingredients.
• At $55 it’s a splurge – but, imo, one you won’t regret.
Plantscription is a wonderful addition to the Origins arsenal, as well as my own and it’s now a definite “must have” for me.
