Origins knows skincare. If you haven't been able to tell, I'm a fully confessed lover of their Vitazing Moisturizer, face masks, and pretty much everything else. Nice smelling, effective products, and lovely sales assistants dispensing loads of samples is the combination which leads to a trek to the green and orange stamped counter far too often. I've been pleased with their skincare in the past, so a few blogger raves and a spendy disposition and I had my hands on the Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging Concealer.
Shot through with their anti-aging formula from the Plantscription line, the concealer claims to not only hide imperfections, but to aide them in the long term. I'm not on the hunt for the latest anti-aging miracle cream with seaweed and dragons blood (you know, the claims the beauty industry has these days), but perhaps in a few decades time. For now, I'm on the hunt for a good concealer, and, having been labeled as the perfect formula for under the eyes and around the face, I figured the dual action formula might serve me well on rushed mornings.
Upon purchase, the ever-so-helpful sales assistant warned me against using the Plantscription Concealer on blemishes, as it might reck havock. Nevertheless, I'm daring, and I tested it out. It was no miracle spot-treating concealer, but it lightly concealed without inducing worse results. Being a quite liquidy, thin formula, it didn't last the longest time and could be quickly wiped away using the same strength as lifting an egg. I wouldn't say it is th best formula for spots, but it was okay.
Spots aside, on the days when my skin didn't resemble that of a Proactive 'before' picture (okay, I may be exaggerating...), it was quickly at grab. Perhaps one of the most effective concealers in my stash for covering redness and under-eye drama, it has earned its prime spot. Because of its anti-aging formula, it works to sit on top of the skin - not falling into lines and other gravity-caused woes. Wiser gals, listen up - this may be the product for you. Age aside, night owls alike know the drill when it comes to under eye, concealer creasing. Well, I'm here to tell you that this same wrinkle-camouflaging formula works a treat for the dark circle, puffiness, covering. No creases (score!) and a slightly peachy tint means that it is an under eye savior.
All in all, it deserves a solid A on under eye and redness works. Not particularly fantastic for blemishes, but it does the trick. Meanwhile, I'll continue to use this multipurpose, one stop product in my stash for lazy and good skin days. I'll just keep it hid from my mom...
