Give yourself a heart this Valentine’s Day!
Well, we’re talking about the new Origins Plantscription Powerful Lifting Cream that promises to deliver a heart-shaped face.
What are the characteristics of a heart-shaped face?
According to Dr. Lieve Declercq, Vice-President, Basic Science Research Europe & Asia and Global Spokesperson for Origins, it refers to a face shape featuring sharp jaw line and full cheeks. This characteristics make the face appear more youthful.
The new addition to the Plantscription family is a moisturiser that is fortified with hyaluronic acid complex, known for its ability to visibly restore volume to the skin that has been lost as we age. The formula also promises to soften marionette lines, restores lost volume to help lift and re-contour and infuses skin with rich age-correcting moisture.
Does it work?
I was very excited about this cream because during the media preview, where Origins training manager got us to try it on our hand. I saw how it immediately visibly eliminated the lines on my hand and I thought it holds a lot of promise to softening my expression lines, which I’ve always been very conscious over.
I’ve been using the product for a few weeks now and I do notice a more lifted and obvious jaw line. My skin feels more taut, and I also look better in photographs, particularly frontal shots.
However, don’t count on it as your hydration essential, especially if you’re the kind who can’t live without a super-hydrating moisturiser. The texture of the cream is a little rich (but it absorbs quickly and leaves a velvety sensation) and is definitely a superpower for lifting and not hydration. Supplement it with a good hydration serum if you still need something hydrating.
