Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Advanced Face Serum


Hope everyone had a great weekend and all the American IMBBians had a terrific 4th of July.

As the sun has been shining brighter and brighter, my skin has been getting redder and redder. My skin is very sensitive to the sun, a mere 5 minutes in the sun will turn my face bright red. I rediscovered this face serum in my skincare collection had decided to try it out again. I remember I used it during the winter months, but I had not noticed any difference. I figured it was time to give this product a second try, since it has received rave reviews.


Product Description:

This potent serum is fortified with 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.


1.7 fl. oz. / 50 ml US$71.00


My Take on Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Advanced Face Serum

The bottle is a very sleek, green, glass bottle. Considering the price is quite high, I was glad the product came in a glass bottle. I used about three pumps of product for my entire face and neck. The consistency was very runny and has a pale yellow color. The smell of this product is quite different. To be quite honest, it did not smell good to me. It has a very earthy, mushroom scent which I’m not fond of. After a few seconds you won’t notice the smell (thankfully).
Most serums I have used in the past had a silicone feeling, whereas this had a bit of greasy feeling. I have dry skin, so I didn’t mind it. After applying this on my face I looked in the mirror, and my face looked VERY greasy. This product is better off used before going to bed.
When I woke up the next day, my face looked very plump and dewy. I also noticed that my makeup when on much smoothly on my skin. After using this for 2 weeks every night, I have found that this product works well on hydrating my skin and giving it a healthy, dewy glow. I still get very red in the sun, so I don’t think it helped with my redness. My redness is triggered by the sun, which may be why this product did not work for me. Also I have used this product only once a day for 2 weeks, the bottle recommends applying it twice a day, which may be the reason I haven’t seen any results yet. If you are someone with rosacea, this product would do a better job soothing and calming the skin.

Overall, I think this is a great product. If you are someone who has been battling dry, sensitive skin I would definitely recommend this product. Origins is known for using natural ingredients which is always a plus!

  1. Amazing pics Shruti. *woot* …tempting review, though the product does not seem to be for oily skin *nababana*

  2. Nice review..I am using this serum from past 2 monthd both day and night. Except hydration and this doesnt cause breakout, I dont see any improvement in my skin. I might not repurchase this, given the high price
