Product Comment:Origins Dr Weil's Mega Mushroom Face Serum

I bought this face serum after trying out the sample given by an Origins beauty advisor as I purchased the Origins whitening range, Light Years Ahead (Now they changed the name to Brighter by Nature).

Loaded with generous amount of hydrating ingredients such as squalane, glycerin, yeast extract, sucrose (sugar), mushroom extracts (reishi & cordycerps), sodium hyaluronate, algae extract and Saccharomyces lysate extract, this face serum is expected to help heal damaged skin. It is packed with calming chamomile flower water and lavender essential oil, and enhanced with moisturizing plant oils such as olive oil, meadowfoam oil & argan oil.

This serum is a light birch-color fluid with pleasant essential oil aroma. When I applied it on my skin after thorough cleansing and toning, my skin felt slightly greasy, unless I slept in an air conditioned room. After a few months of usage, my skin texture was hydrated. I can say that this face serum really works, the only bad thing is this serum is slightly greasy. I hope the formulation could be improved.
