Rated 2 out of 5Â by flute1 Not the same
I also was told that this was a replacement for the youthtopia lifting cream and that it was the same - it may be a replacement but it is not the same. I was so happy with the youthtopia - I am 62 and had been using it for many years (recently with the plantscription serum since the youthopia I had started with had also been discontinued) and I was thrilled to find a product that really made a difference in the appearance of my skin.. My skin tone and texture were both great - smooth and virtually poreless. I wear almost no makeup and yet I often get compliments on how great my skin looked - one person even said it almost looked like porcelain. I recently ran out and when I went to buy more I was told that it had been replaced with the plantscription - so I bought it. I have been using it for about three weeks now, and my skin does not look nearly as good as it did before - noticeable lines, and pores are more visible. The cream is also much heavier and leaves a greasy feel that the youthtopia did not. I am really disappointed and will be looking for another product.
Please bring back the youthtopia! Why mess with a good thing?

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Jones NOT Youthtopia!!!
I just have to ask, what is wrong with Youthtopia? Why discontinue something and claim this is a replacement? Plantscriptions is NOT EVEN close to the Youthtopia line. I have been wearing Origins for at least 15 years and now I am looking for a new product line specifically because of the Youthtopia being discontinued. It is so disappointing. These Plantscriptions products have way too many chemicals for my dry, sensitive skin and makes me age worse than if I used a drug store product. I would not be writing this review except I have sent several notes with no return reply beyond an acknowledgement it was sent. I hope by writing this it will get someone's attention. I am so not happy with this "replacement" for Youthtopia. It's a huge FAIL Origins. I also see that many others are as upset as myself by reading these comments. Please bring back the ultra-rich Youthtopia. This entire Plantscriptions line is not good for us!!!

Like many others, I used Youthtopia before this product. Although I loved it, I must say this moisturizer is the best thing I have ever used on my skin. I live in a dry climate, so moisturizing is especially vital. I have pretty dry skin, and after the first time using this, I was actually able rub the dry outer layer off. My skin was left so soft and smooth I could hardly believe it. I must admit that it took about a week for my skin to adapt, and I even broke out a little in the first couple of days. However, I decided to stick it out, and after about a week I had no further problems. Honestly, this moisturizer is wonderful and I see notable improvements in the overall health of my skin. Is it Youthtopia? No...but in my opinion it's better. It is very intensely moisturizing, so it may be too much for people with very oily skin. Nonetheless, I am so happy I read the negative reviews AFTER purchasing it, because if I would have seen them before I may have been reluctant to buy it. Try it for yourself. If you don't like it you don't like it....but if you end up falling in love with it like me, you will be so thankful that you gave it a shot; as there's really nothing else that compares.

Since the launch of Origins Plantscription in 2011, I have been an avid user and fan of some of its collection of products. Most recently, I purchased Plantscription's Powerful Lifting cream and have been using twice daily for the past 10 days. While I have never taken the time to write a review for any of the Origins products that I have been loyal to over the past 10+ years, I am compelled to submit this one. Unequivocally, I can state that for me, this is the best facial treatment cream I have ever used. From the moment I first tried the product, my skin felt amazingâ¦ firmer, fuller, softer and noticeably differentâ¦ in fact, so much improved I can't quite get over it. For the first time in years, I actually look forward to my morning and evening ritual of facial cleansing and treatment.
