This scores major points for taking care of our skin through the binge snacking season that is Chinese New Year. Goodbye, sensitive skin; hello, 2020!
Of all the superfood skincare trends that we’ve seen, mushroom is one of the few ingredients that’s sticking around in our beauty routines for its therapeutic healing properties. This humble fungus had a huge skincare moment in 2019 and we don’t think it’s going anywhere anytime soon.
Origins was one of the first (we’re talking more than 10 years ago now) to harness its healing effects for skincare benefits, so it’s fitting that the brand is spotlighting its mushroom line for the first CNY of the new decade.
The skin restorer
If you think the typical CNY packaging is a little too red for your chic collection of skincare bottles, this limited edition Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Soothing Treatment Lotion is for you. Its contents are as enticing as the sleek gold packaging (sustainably-sourced, no less), featuring skin-soothing mushrooms (specifically of the Reishi and Coprinus variety) to combat sensitivity, redness and irritation.
Adding to this antioxidant-rich blend, fermented chaga, cordyceps and sunflower seed extract act as powerful anti-irritants to restore a healthy complexion. It’s all music to our ears, because who doesn’t want to look their best for the festivities?
Think of it as strength training for your skin: This much-loved cordial also builds your skin’s resilience with ingredients like lactobacillus, which strengthens skin barriers; and camellia oil, which improves skin elasticity. And if you have a thing for calming scents like us, you’ll feel well and truly pampered by the aroma of organic essential oils like geranium, mandarin, orange, patchouli and lavender.
TL;DR: This is your golden route to glowing your way through house visits, and your holy grail to heal your skin from the consequences of festive snacking. So snag a bottle in this auspicious packaging for good luck and even better skin this year.
