The Mega Mushroom range from Origins has been a favourite of mine for a couple of years. For the simple fact its hydrating, great for soothing redness and combating the effects of winter on the skin. I always turn to this range it as the temperature drops and this duo have been my skin saviours for the past few months.
The Mega Mushroom Collection has undergone some changes & is back with an even better formula
‘The Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Collection is developed to target irritation and boost cellular energy. These newly added and naturally-derived “miracle worker” ingredients include the powerhouse Sea Buckthorn Berry and the trio of mushrooms, Chaga, Resihi and Cordyceps. Which help promote skin’s resilience, evenness and an overall healthy appearance.’
This serum was a new addition to the Mega Mushroom line this Summer & its been a welcomed addition to my skincare routine.
This serum looks quite thick when you first apply it but once you start to massage it in it feels cool and light on the skin. It absorbs easily and quickly without leaving a greasy residue and even leaves my skin looking slightly matte. This has that strong botanical Mega Mushroom scent, which I know is not to everyone’s liking but the scent doesn’t linger too long on the skin.
This serum has also been developed to help protect skin from internal and external aggressors that can lead to increased sensitivity, irritation and premature signs of ageing.
I like how smooth and hydrating this serum makes my skin feel and it sits so well under my moisturiser. I can really see a positive difference in my skin when I use it for a couple of weeks. Its packed full of the following skin benefits,
‘This potent serum is fortified with omega-rich Sea Buckthorn plus skin-repairing Reishi, irritant-soothing Chaga and Cordyceps mushrooms – long used in Chinese medicine to heal, promote longevity and improve health. Used faithfully, skin is transformed from reactive to resilient and from stressed to soothed to reveal a healthier, more radiant appearance.’
This like the Serum also includes the new cocktail of ingredients which quiet and calm our skin to protect skin’s barrier. I find this face cream to be such an intense hydrating cream. It’s very calming and it helps reduce breakouts too.
The smallest amount warmed up between your fingers would be enough to moisturise my whole face. It is targeted at people who suffer from redness and the first signs of ageing and that is me to a T. This is not specifically a night cream but it feels so nice used as a night cream, I apply a thick layer of it on top of my serum and let it work its magic (well its not magic but science). I feel my skin looks better for using it overnight, I wake up to smooth, hydrated and radiant skin. I love it so much.
The Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Collection is made up of 7 products all designed to strengthen and soothe sensitive skin. Its a range I love and always go back too. I haven’t tried the whole range but I hope to try the Eye Serum & Cleanser this year.
Let me know if this is a range you’ve tried and how you got on with it.
