When it comes to summer skincare, I’m all about keeping things simple. I don’t like to play around too much with a routine which works, but when I tried Origins’ Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion, I knew it was a keeper. Super lightweight, and designed to calm skin and calm redness, it’s exactly what I’ve been looking for during the warmer months.
I’m not sure why mine came in such a bright bottle, but it’s so pretty, and it really stands out from my other products! After cleansing, I pat my skin dry, and then tap about a ‘shake’ of the essence into skin. It’s got a light, watery texture, which absorbs instantly into skin, and I follow up with a pump of serum, and my facial moisturiser as normal.
The Treatment Lotion is pH balanced, so if you’ve spent too much time in the sun, or your skin is feeling just generally ‘off’, it’s great for getting everything into balance. Stored in the fridge, it’s cooling and calming, and it’s a real relief to use on warm mornings, when I feel a bit puffy, and it really hydrates skin deeply too. After application, I follow-up with my regular serum and moisturiser and my skin looks and feels hydrated and refreshed. It’s a godsend for days when I wake up feeling a bit blah, and on evenings when I’ve had to do a deep cleanse after wearing makeup all day, it feels absolutely gorgeous to apply.
Origins Mega Mushroom Treatment Lotion is priced at £32 here (UK) and here (US)
