THE CLAIM Combining an extract taken from the African anogeissus tree with proven wrinkle-fighting peptides, Origins' new Plantscription serum aims to even out blotchy skin and give it a smoother appearance. Internal studies found results comparable to a prescription retinoid.
THE EXPERT SAYS "This is a cosmetically elegant product: nice smell and feel-good texture, which is important because you'll actually use it and see results," says Dr. Fusco.
OUR VERDICT Love! Our forehead wrinkles were less visible after four weeks. Plus, it didn't cause inflammation or redness, a common effect of retinol.
