Origins Plantscription™ Powerful Lifting Cream


Hi to all lovely readers! Welcome to Lately I was really annoyed with the content scrapers who basically copy my entire content from all my latest blog posts and use it on their blog. I have warned and reported them. I’m still searching more ways to stop them from stealing my content. Hello content scrapers, I’m the rightful owner of this blog post Origins Plantscription™ Powerful Lifting Cream.

End of last year in 2013, I have attended an Origins event to preview its new anti-aging moisturizer – Plantscription™ Powerful Lifting Cream – the latest addition to its Planscription line that is said to give a power lift in just 2 weeks!

Origins Plantscription™ Powerful Lifting Cream

Newly launched Plantscription™ SPF 25 Anti-aging Oil-Free Cream was also presented during the event too.

Many Asian women are wishing for a V-shaped face. In the recent years, it is probably one of the most sought-after surgical procedures in Asia. A V-shaped face (a slim, oval face that narrows to a sharp end at the chin) and a smooth, firm skin tend to give a youthful look.

Do you know what causes the skin to sag? Well, it is not completely due to gravity. As we age, our skin’s supportive collagen structure begins to shrink and become fragmented. And hyaluronic acid (the natural substance that gives skin volume and fullness) diminishes. Hence, our skin begins to sag particularly in the jaw line around the jowls of the face and near our nose and mouth, aging our appearance. Aging also goes beyond wrinkles and fine lines. Lifting the skin is equally as important to restoring a youthful appearance of facial contours.

Origins Plantscription™ Powerful Lifting Cream

The NEW Plantscription™ Powerful Lifting Cream is formulated with Anogeissus and Commiphora that is said to lift skin up, creating an illusion of the modern V – the new must-have heart shaped face. It helps rebuild lost collagen and increase skin’s natural production Hyaluronic Acid to visibly restore volume and density to sagging skin. It helps visibly re-contour and redefine the face and skin may look firmer and plumper.

Do you know what causes the signs of aging in skin?

Well, though aging is a natural process that starts as early as in 20s, aging can also cause by unhealthy lifestyle, stress, harmful sun exposure and environmental factors. These factors cause a decline in skin’s natural collagen, elastin and fibrillin production. Skin’s structure weakens, paving the way for the appearance of wrinkles. Surface renewal also slows making skin texture tough and uneven.

Origins VitaZing BB SPF 35 / PA+++ Revitalizing Cream


Hi everyone! It’s Monday and have you recovered from your weekend? Here’s the first post this week. I’ve actually done this post quite some time ago but I didn’t get to publish it. My bad for taking so long, here you go …

In the recent years, many western cosmetics brands have been following suit to introduce a BB Cream under their makeup line. BB Cream has increasingly gaining its popularity in Western markets and is no longer a product targeting for Asian consumers.

Originally designed to help soothe skin while perfecting skin tone and providing natural-looking coverage, BB (Blemish Balm) Cream is now an all-in-one product that can replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunblock. It is often used as a foundation that helps brighten the skin tone while masking imperfections and shielding skin from UV damage.

In June 2012, Origins has launched a new BB Cream – VitaZing BB SPF 35 / PA+++ Revitalizing Cream with Mangosteen.

Origins NEW VitaZing BB SPF 35 / PA+++ Revitalizing Cream with Mangosteen – S$60 / 50ml

Origins NEW VitaZing BB SPF 35 / PA+++ Revitalizing Cream with Mangosteen is said to correct, perfect and protect skin by providing 8 powerful benefits.

  • Improve skin’s radiance, immediately and long term
  • Immediately reduce the appearance of pores
  • Control oil over time
  • Conceal flaws
  • Immediately minimize shine
  • Reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  • Hydrate skin
  • Broad-spectrum UV protection

NEW Origins Make A Difference Plus + Moisturizer & Treatment


Recently, I was invited to visit an Origins outlet @ Robinsons Raffles City to preview two new additions to its Make A Difference Plus + Collection, that offers a new approach to correcting skin dehydration. Introducing NEW Make A Difference Plus + Rejuvenating Treatment and NEW Make A Difference Plus +Moisturizer. Retailing at S$78.00 (50ml) for both, these latest moisturizers are available from October 2012 onwards.

Origins, the natural skin care brand, has shown that perpetually dehydrated skin may lack a naturally occurring enzyme named Caspase-14 which helps skin produce and maintain critical moisture levels. When the skin lacks of this enzyme, skin will experience a biological deficit and faces persistent, non-resolving dryness. To address this biological deficit, Origins utilizes advanced technology to support dehydrated skin while also delivering non-stop moisture.


Make A Difference Plus + Collection

The Make A Difference Plus + Collection – including the NEW Make A Difference Plus + Rejuvenating Treatment and Make A Difference Plus + Rejuvenation Moisturizer – features a combination of potent botanical and natural ingredients that work in tandem to support skin’s vital Natural Moisturizing Factor.

Caspase-14 (shown above), together with Fillagrin (a biological protein) and Urea (an organic compound), create skin’s Natural Moisturizing Factor that produce moisture and help skin retain a natural reservoir of hydration. Origins complex of Lychee and Watermelon Extracts combined with Rhodocrosite, a red gemstone, helps boost moisture production. The result is healthy, hydrated skin.

Other ingredients found in the collection are Rose of Jericho, Micrococcus Lysate, Padina Pavonica and Murmuru Butter. An essential oil blend of Bergamot, Lemon, Orange, Spearmint, Rose and Vetiver imparts a light, refreshing scent.

Make A Difference Plus + is claimed to increase moisture levels by 75% and retain continuous moisture levels for 24 hours upon just one application. A clinical study was done and it is claimed that 96% of women who applied Make A Difference Plus + Rejuvenating Treatment for 4 weeks, showed a significant improvement in moisture and the ability to retain moisture levels for 48 hours upon one application.

Introducing The NEW Dr. Andrew Weil For Origins Mega-Bright Skin Illuminating Collection


Last month, I have shared with my readers my first preview test panel for a new Origins revolutionary skin brightening serum that is launching in February 2012 and my short review after using it for 28 days.

And now I’m introducing you the NEW Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Bright Skin Illuminating Collection.

Origins Mega-Bright Skin Illuminating Collection, officially launched in February 2012, comprises of Skin Illuminating Cleanser, Skin Illuminating Treatment Lotion, Skin Illuminating Serum, Skin Illuminating Moisturizer and SPF 40 / PA +++ Skin Illuminating UV Face Protector. Please see below for product details.

This brightening collection, a collaboration with Andrew Weil (world-renowned pioneer in integrative medicine), uses natural ingredients to correct the past and present future skin damage caused by UV exposure, oxidative stress and even fatigue.

Andrew Weil, Harvard-trained medical doctor and botanist, has found that inflammation, which cause irritation in skin, is “the root cause of the most common and serious disease of aging.” When inflammation occurs, pigment-producing cells are signaled to overproduce, and therefore resulting in skin discoloration, uneven skin tone and dullness. In addition, Asian skin (with genetically thinner skin) is naturally more prone to dark spots and discoloration.

To tackle this root cause, Andrew Weil and Origins introduce the NEW Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Bright Skin Illuminating Collection. This revolutionary collection helps keep irritation at bay, so melanin production isn’t triggered, which in turn reduces skin discoloration, dark spots, uneven skin tone and prevent future pigment formation. It instantly brighten skin, improve clarity and radiance.

Participating In The Origins Project Mega-Bright Test Panel


Late last year in 2011, for the first time I was privileged to be invited to join the preview test panel for a new Origins revolutionary skin brightening serum that will be officially launched in February 2012.

Origins have once again collaborated with Dr. Andrew Weil, one of the world’s leading authorities on integrative health, to bring you this clinically proven treatment. This innovative botanical brightening serum is claimed to help even up skin tone, reduce dark spots and bring radiance to the skin.

In this Project Mega-Bright Test Panel, 10 lucky participants including myself have been selected to receive the serum in a trial-size bottle (without label). We are required to test the serum for continuous 28 days twice a day, morning and night. During the 28 days, it is recommended to refrain from having any cosmetic procedures done or from using any topical facial prescriptions in order to see a definite result.

NEW Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Eye Treatment


Most of us will probably notice our FIRST signs of aging on the eye area and it is mainly due to 3 key factors. The skin around the eyes is actually up to 3 times thinner than our facial skin and it also produces no sebum to keep it moisture. It is therefore dryer, fragile and sensitive. Our eyes express nearly every emotion and are in constant emotion as they follow the movements of the underlying muscles. As we age, skin around the eyes loses resiliency and collagen, and therefore deeper, more ‘permanent’ lines and wrinkles will form.

So have you noticed any signs of eye aging lately? Are you giving special attention to the eye area? You should if you are not! Well, early prevention is better than cure. The most common signs of eye aging are : crow’s feet, crepey skin on the eyelid, under eye fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin around the eyes, dark eye circles and puffy eyes.

A few weeks ago, I was delighted to be presented a newly launched eye product from Origins, NEW Plantscription Anti-Aging Eye Treatment, for testing and review. It is the latest addition to Plantscription series after the successful launch of their latest breakthrough Plantscription Anti Aging Serum. This new innovative serum claims to have 88% of wrinkle-reducing power of a prescription and as potent as retinoids (a proven wrinkle fighter) with 0% irritation, dryness and photosensitivity.
