Does your skin turn redder after wearing your protective mask or spending a day outside? You may have sensitised skin. In this case, you'll need a skincare product like the bestselling Dr. Andrew Weil For Origins™ Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion that promises to soothe and strengthen your skin.
#TBLBureau Campaigns Manager Rebecca tested it out to see if it will lessen the redness in her skin and protect it from external aggressors like pollution. Read on to see if it lives up to its claims.

Origins™ Mega-Mushroom Treatment Lotion packaging
The Origins™ Mega-Mushroom Treatment Lotion comes in a dark green plastic bottle with a flip cap and nozzle to dispense the product. Its fool-proof design makes it easy to store and bring around when you're travelling.
Rebecca shared that the nozzle makes it preferable to use a cotton round. "I wish the nozzle can be slightly smaller so that I can manage how much product comes out if I decide not to use a cotton pad for application," she said.
On the flip side, she likes that she has options when it comes to product sizes. "I love how this lotion comes in two different sizes, perfect for first-time users who aren't ready to commit to a big bottle yet," Rebecca shared.
First impressions on and claims of the Origins™ Mega-Mushroom Treatment Lotion
"The lotion has a very light, watery consistency and has a light herbal scent that's not too overpowering or artificial," Rebecca summarised. She said that this fits perfectly into her preferences in facial lotions, in addition to them providing lasting hydration.
The Origins Mega-Mushroom Treatment Lotion is infused with anti-inflammatory Reishi mushroom, soothing fermented Chaga mushroom, and hydrating plant-derived hyaluronic acid. This skin-improving trifecta of ingredients is boosted by the brand's Plantmunity Technology™, made from adaptogenic liquorice root, that improves the skin's natural defences against environmental aggressors.
Aside from its promises to minimise redness, hydrate, and strengthen the skin, it also claims that it can minimise the appearance of visible pores — something that Rebecca is also keen to see in action.
Applying the Origins™ Mega-Mushroom Treatment Lotion
Rebecca used the facial lotion twice a day for two weeks to see if it will improve her sensitised skin.
"On days when my skin feels more sensitive after spending time under the sun or wearing a mask for the entire day, I’ll use it as a wet compress mask by putting a generous amount on a cotton pad, and leaving it on my face for about three to five minutes." This trick has helped significantly calm her skin and lessen its redness.
"I also love how my skin feels hydrated without feeling sticky," she added. "The product gets absorbed into my skin easily and preps my skin for the next step." She's also noticed that her makeup doesn't crease as much, especially around her nose and mouth, if she applies the lotion beforehand. Her pores are also not as visible, even after just two weeks of using the product.
Final verdict on the Origins™ Mega-Mushroom Treatment Lotion
After two weeks of using the product daily, Rebecca's convinced to continue using the Origins Mega-Mushroom Treatment Lotion. "I would definitely continue to use this product to maintain my skin barrier," she said.
She also finds that it's an "affordable" and "good value for money" option for folks who want a hydrating, soothing, and strengthening product. Since it's lightweight, she sees people of different skin types enjoying its fast-absorbing and effective formula.
