The new Origins Brighter by Nature collection offers a regimen that works together to help fight existing skin discoloration (including sun spots), while preventing future damage. I recently tried the Brighter by Nature™ SPF 35 Skin tone correcting moisturizer. Read on for my thoughts.
What I really like about the Origins line is the attention to formulation using natural ingredients to yield proven results. In the Brighter by Nature moisturizer, you have Palmaria Palmata, a red seaweed, which helps to reduce the appearance of dark spots and discoloration, Turkey Tall Mushroom, which helps to break apart dark spots, antioxidants, salicylic acid, essential oils and more. Because of the addition of SPF 35 to the formula, you’re not only treating the problem, but preventing future damage, thus breaking the discoloration cycle.
In my use, I liked this product, but when I first applied it, I thought it felt a bit heavy on my skin–due most likely to the sunscreen. After it’s completely absorbed, however, it dries without any greasiness or chalky appearance and does not feel heavy on the skin. If you’re a person that spends alot of time outdoors, this product might be a great addition to your skincare regimen. In my use, I didn’t experience any sensitivity issues.
Origins Brighter By Nature™ SPF 35 Skin tone correcting moisturizer retails at $40 for 1.7 ounces and is available at Origins stores and counters, as well as Origins.com.
