Two weeks ago, I have earlier introduced an Origins collection – Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Collection – that helps to defend inflammation (which is an invisible skin ager), making skin stronger and more resilient.
This collection strengthens skin barrier and helps prevent irritation, reduce sensitivity, minimize visible redness, prevent premature signs of aging, calm and soothe skin.

As promised on my earlier post, I’m here to share with you a new anti-wrinkle prescription Plantscription Anti-Aging Serum which claims to have 88% of the visible wrinkle-reducing power of a prescription with 0% irritation! Woof!!
I was given a trial sample (15ml) of the new Plantscription Anti-Aging Serum which is equivalent to half the size of a full size Plantscription Anti-Aging Serum in 30ml.
Plantscription Anti-Aging Serum – S$118.00 / 30ml
Product Profile : Although it’s not the same as prescription, in just 4 weeks nature’s next generation power plant helps visibly repair 4 major signs of aging without irritation. And with continued use, results improve. What will nature think of next!
As retinoids, also known as prescription Vitamin A or tretinoin, are widely used as a dermatological gold standard for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is claimed that they work by increasing epidermal cell turnover and by thinning skin’s topmost layer. Very often, these powerful anti-aging treatments can cause photo-sensitivity, redness, dryness, flaking and irritation.
I’m just a very good example as I do encounter similar skin reactions whenever I use retinoids or tretinoin. This powerful anti-aging ingredient causes my skin to become hyper sensitive, increase inflammation reaction such as redness, flaking and red bumps. I have since stopped using this prescription.
So when I was first introduced to this Plantscription Anti-Aging Serum, I was told that this serum has 88% of the visible wrinkle-reducing power of a prescription with 0% irritation, dryness and photo-sensitivity! It is claimed to be as potent as retinoids without the sight of inflammation! Woof! I was sold!
Unlike retinoids, Plantscription is not a prescription. Under the clinical tests performed by Origins, Dr. Marcus McFerren (Board Certified Dermatologist and Consultant to Origins) has observed a noticeable reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the test participants. And there wasn’t any irritation.
Plantscription Anti-Aging Serum is claimed to visibly repair 4 signs of aging in just 4 weeks!
- Noticeably reduces wrinkle length & depth
- Smoothes uneven skin texture
- Visibly lift sagging contours
- Revives youthful “bounce” and firmness
Like all other Origins products, this anti-aging serum is formulated with natural and certified organic ingredients and 100% natural essential oils. And it is FREE of parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, mineral oil, PABA, petrolatum, paraffin, DEA and animal ingredients.
Its soft and lightweight silky texture penetrates into the skin quickly. Within 40 seconds the serum completely absorbs into the skin and it’s as though I have never applied anything at all. No greasiness or stickiness at all! And that’s really amazing and I love it! I also like its fainty natural aromatic scent that it’s so light I couldn’t smell it at times.
I have an ultra sensitive skin so when I was told that this Plantscription Anti-Aging Serum can be as potent as retinoids and has 88% of the visible wrinkle-reducing power of a prescription with 0% irritation, dryness and photo-sensitivity! I was completely sold! Wow! It’s too good to be true!
Well, my skin practically hates retinoids. Retinoids, a well-known wrinkle fighter, will cause my skin to become hyper sensitive and inflammation such as redness, dryness, flaking and irritation that will surface easily.
So what’s the secret formulation of this new serum? Its key ingredient African Anogeissus, a tree native to the Republic of Ghana, is claimed to stimulate the production of fibrillin, which supports skin structure. This natural anti-aging serum also contains rosemary extract and siegesbeckia to help support collagen and elastin production.
Plantscription Anti-Aging Serum contains a couple of potential skin irritants that I happened to encounter very very minor irritation from them on my first use. Thankfully the irritation is so minor that it didn’t bother me much and it disappeared within a few hours later. And after using it for almost 3 weeks now, my super sensitive skin doesn’t even get flared up at all.
After using it once a day for 3 weeks, there’s a very superficial improvement on the skin elasticity although the result is not very obvious yet. So far my skin appears brighter and the uneven skin tone has improved superficially. The wrinkles and fine lines on my forehead and cheek areas also appear less obvious. All-in-all, I’m quite pleased with the overall results. I hope to see a more significant result after a longer period of usage.
Plantscription Anti-Aging Serum is available at any of the Origins counters at : Isetan Scotts, Robinsons Raffles City, Metro Paragon, Robinsons Centrepoint and Tangs VivoCity.
