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!!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by kel858 Youthtopia....but better!!
I was a long-time user of Youthtopia and it was my "go to" night cream for hydration and firming. I was extremely disappointed that Youthtopia was discontinued. But I thought I'd give Plantscription Lifting Cream a fair shot before throwing my hands up in the air.. So, what I did was get a sample of this and put on one side of my face nightly and my Youthtopia on the other. After a few days, the side with Plantscription looked significantly tighter. Then I stopped all creams for about a week, and put each cream on the opposing side of the face to make sure it isn't that one side of my face is naturally firmer. And again, the side with Plantscription, not Youthtopia was noticeably firmer. So I'm sold and I have to disagree with the other reviewers. My skin responds better to this vs. Youthtopia. Perhaps my skin was maxed out with Youthtopia and needed something new. I don't miss it. There is rarely a skincare product where I can see an actual difference in my skin but for some reason I see a significant change when I used Youthtopia and now this cream. I wouldn't say that for all Origins products, but for me, this particular one is magic. As far as the comments on that it is greasy-- I only use this at night and a night cream/treatment as I did with Youthtopia. So I don't really care how it looks- shiny of course--because in the morning my skin looks tighter and more lifted. I don't think it is really meant to be a day cream. Use it just at night!

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.
