Dr Weils For Origins Mega Mushroom Relief Skin Relief Serum


I'm always looking for something that just goes that little bit further when I'm thinking about looking after my skin. While I'm usually on a budget skincare is the one thing that I will splurge a little bit more money on as I've always struggled to feel comfortable with the appearance of my skin and its one of my biggest insecurities. There have been various problems such as the appearance of acne, dry skin patches, dullness and of course sun damage so its no surprise that I just never feel great about people seeing me without my usual face of foundation. I've spent a lot of time trying to find products that help my skin to thrive and survive and I finally feel like I'm starting to get somewhere.

Enter the Dr Weils for Origins Mega Mushroom Skin Relief Serum (wow mouthful), which is the stuff of skin care dreams. It's really no surprise that I like this so much as I've been pretty Origins obsessed recently and the products all seem to work wonders with my skin so perhaps this really is the brand for me! I purchased this recently when it was on offer in my work and with my staff discount applied I managed to nab this for quite a nifty little price of £36. Yes this is a really expensive product when bought full price but I needed a little January 'cheer me up' okay! And all I could think about was how good it was going to make my skin look and feel!

Moving onto the product now and I was a little nervous at first when I didn't recognise any of the ingredients it contained; Reishi, for example, but then I'm not really all that clued up on that sort of thing so I got over that quickly when I started to use it. A lot of the ingredients are known for being irritant soothing or calming yet this is marketed as a brightening treatment, which really is perfect for someone like me who is constantly after brighter, more radiant skin, but suffers from break outs and this didn't let me down as it instantly soothed my sore under the skin spots and toned down the redness and irritation.

The one thing I did notice was that this doesn't feel all that moisturising when you first put it on your face and for this reason I started off using a lot more than I should have been, because I think the texture of this is a little deceiving and when I wake up in the morning my skin seems extremely hydrated and soft. I would also say that I was able to notice a difference instantly as this seems to boost dull skin straight away and make it appear brighter and more alive. It also really smoothed out any lumps and bumps and my make up looked much more flawless when I applied this first.

Since using this I have definitely noticed an improvement overall in the texture of my skin. It is much softer and my usually large pores seem to have reduced in size dramatically. Unlike other treatments this one hasn't flared up any breakouts and seems to calm down spots rather than irritate so its very much suited to all skin types for this reason. The only bad thing to say about this really is the price, but of course with skin care sometimes you really do get what you pay for and this is something that will definitely give you results!

What do you make of this? Do you spend a lot of money on your skincare?

  1. This sounds pretty good and quite intriguing with the mushroom! I don't normally spend a huge amount on skin care as I tend to get a bit lazy with it!.. I really want to get more into it so I can improve my skin though!
