|Origins Facial Moisture||
The well regarded skin care brand Origins offers the Nourishing Face Lotion, which is certified as 95% organic and is made to restore moisture and softness to facial skin and protect the face from free radical damage. The Origins Facial Moisture line has several other facial moisturizers including Youthtopia, and Plantidote Mega-Mushroom Face Lotion. Origins Youthtopia is a moisturizer and a skin firming cream that is supposed to reduce the look of lines and wrinkles. The Plantidote Mega-Mushroom Face Lotion is oil free and claims to “optimize the skin’s natural defenses”.
The Organics Facial Moisture Nourishing Face Lotion blends organic cloves, rose, lavender, patchouli, and red thyme essential oils. Along with other ingredients and without any chemicals, the Nourishing face lotion claims to give vital nutrients and antioxidant benefits to the skin. Youthtopia primarily uses the main ingredient Rhodiola, a root also known as “Golden Root”. This product also contains Vitamin C and plant peptides and claims to enhance the skin’s natural collagen production, firm the skin, and give a renewed radiance. Youthtopia claims that after eight weeks of use, clinical studies showed that those who used it experienced a 44% reduction in fine lines and a 61% lift in the skin’s appearance. The Plantidote Mega-Mushroom Face Lotion is used to quiet and calm facial skin. It contains Vitamin C and Vitamin E to defend facial skin from “destructive oxidation”.

The Bottom Line
If you like organic and natural products, Origins facial moisturizers may be right for you. If you are seeking a stronger product with more noticeable results, it would be better to seek out a more dedicated anti-aging treatment that contains collagen, retinol, or other ingredients that have been scientifically proven in clinical studies to treat aging skin. Origins products are expensive to try, which is usually the case with all natural or organic products. Origins Facial Moisture products should offer customer testimonials and a money back guarantee since it makes claims that the products are effective in treating wrinkles and fine lines. The products have received mixed reviews on alternate online sources, so it may work for some but not for others. Clinical data is posted for the Youthtopia product, but it would be beneficial for Origins to post it for the other facial moisturizers as well to better demonstrate product effectiveness.
