Rated 5 out of 5Â by szquattro Life/Skin Saver, Especially for Travelers
I was excited to try Plantscriptionâ¢ Youth-renewing face oil since I am an avid user of other Plantscriptionâ¢ products. I have very sensitive, dry skin so was pleased to find an oil that is neither harsh nor heavily fragranced.
After using the oil for only 2 weeks I can see and feel a dramatic difference. My skin looks more youthful and does not have a tight feeling like it has in the past even after using a lot of moisturizer. I found that I can now use less serum and moisturizer as a result. And even though I have dry skin, I still don't like to use a greasy feeling product that causes my makeup to run; makeup stays put while using the oil.
I also travel a lot, usually 65+ flights a year and many overnights at hotels where the air is dry and water may be harder than what I am used to at home. The oil has been a HUGE life/skin saver - with a couple of drops in the AM/PM my skin looks and feels hydrated through out the entire trip.
Origins once again has made another great product. However, I think the instructions provided on the website and product packaging could be more descriptive than just "use AM and PM." I have since learned that the oil should be applied after toner and serum but before or mixed with moisturizer from an article in a popular beauty magazine and then using the Live Chat feature provided on the Origins website - the representative at the Origins store said to apply after serum so was confused until live-chatting with an Origins rep online.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Kristina So far, so good!
I have been using this product for about a week now, and I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised to find that I am putting oil on my face, yet within minutes, all traces of it are gone, leaving my skin feeling amazing.
I am only giving it 4 stars because I haven't really been using it long enough to say it's perfect, but I am loving it so far.
I also wanted to address all of the other reviewer complaints about the dropper. Personally, I LOVE it and hope that Origins leaves it just as it is!
Yes, if you fill the dropper and try to put it on your fingers, it will make a mess, but since you only need 2-3 drops to cover your face, I use it like a pipet, without pulling any of the product into the dropper. I just pull it out of the bottle and let it naturally drop onto my fingers. Once the bottle gets lower, I may use the dropper, but if they switch to a pump like many have asked for, imagine the amount of waste!
Origins products are a real splurge for me, and I don't want weeks worth of product thrown away! Just my two cents....

Rated 5 out of 5Â by OriginsFaninGuam Another Favorite!
I decided to try this product after reading all the great reviews, especially those with oily and combination skin, and I'm so glad I did! I've been using the entire Plantscription line for over 10 years (I'm now 46) and this oil is a nice addition to the routine. I use it after the serum and because of Guam's high humidity, I use it mostly at night. I'll use it during the day, applying after moisturizer only after there's enough time for it to absorb. It is lightweight and I only use 3 drops for my entire face and neck, but preferably there should be more time to absorb before I apply make up (maybe I shouldn't be in a rush all the time...haha).
After laughing off all the comments about the containers (thinking those reviewers simply need to be careful), I accidentally knocked it down, spilling about 1/5 of the bottle. :( I wiped it up from my nightstand with my fingers and put it all over my legs and arms. (It smells so nice!) That's when I thought about using it on a scar I had on my leg. It was a relatively new scratch I got sometime in May. Scars fade so slowly on my skin but I decided to apply the oil morning and night on the scratch and noticed it has been fading faster than usual! In comparison, I have a small scar from last Halloween and this scratch is now hardly visible! Plus, the scar from Halloween is fading at a faster pace since I started applying the oil.
So yes, I do recommend this item (already bought another bottle for back-up since there aren't any Origins retailers here anymore) and I do suggest that the bottle be changed to prevent the accidents. Thanks, Origins, for another great product!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Sarah34 Most amazing oil on Earth
I have been an Origins customer since 1992. This oil makes your face and eye area like newborn baby skin...but this is not tge reason for this review! This stuff saved my hair! Ihave dyed my blonde hair to death...we are talking it turning grey and white and falling out to death...after much prosessing, like at least thirty different bottles (not exagerating) I got my hair a human blonde shade, but it was like boiled ramen noodles wet and huge chunks came out in my hand! (and i mean I now look like that guy from the movie last of the mohicians with short pieces on top) I usually use coconut oil, pure jojoba oil, camelina oil, or the oil Origins sells for hair...but this was too serious...so I grabbed my $50 bottle of Plantscription oil...I put it on my wet pasta hair...I did not touch it and let it dry....to my surprise, when my hair dried, it was toddler soft! It was strong and I could comb it with zero breakage and no hairs came loose! It was so shiny that my hair looked better than when I was a toddler! It was not oily feeling! The next day it was still perfect and not frizzy! It never vanished! After a week, my head did not itch to be washed and my hair was still soft! It made my hair so perfect that the now short pieces on top blended in. My hair has never looked better! I cannot believe it! If you think about it, you will spend $50 on one meal at a resaurant, one of 3 you will eat that day...so how is it too frivelous to spend this much on an oil each month thst can give you angel hair! I am going to do it! I cannot even imagine what this would do to hair that is not damaged and snapping off like bubble gum! The future is indeed here and I see a beginning of all beauty and age problems solved...with Origins being the leader. I certainly have Origins to thank for the fact that I am 39 and have luminous, perfect, teenage skin with zero wrinkles, plump elacticity, requiring zero makeup, ever...of course I have only had gallons and gallons of Origins touch my face sine I was 16 in 1992....and now, my hair can actually be perfect too! Holy cow, thank you Origins!
