Just wanted to add another comment....

Since my last post [5 days ago] I have noticed that my skin looks much better than when I first starting using this product.

It looks fresher and smoother. The wrinkles I have around my eyes and the horizontal one on my forehead looks much softer and less noticeable, even in bright light.

I think my jawline also looks a little firmer.

The biggy though is that my usually non-observant DH said to me that he thinks I look younger and asked if I had lost weight [I haven't!].

I think I can see what he means as I just look fresher somehow.

I will now have to try and save the pennies for another bottle of this stuff!

Q1 I did like it, nice fresh smell, light non greasy feel and easy use pump. The colour of the pump and the product were a bit odd, dated maybe not as clean feeling as the product itself.
Q2 there were no application instruction so I went with 1 pump each application. It was easy and satisfying to use especially as I tend to be in a rush.
Q3 I think it feels a bit firmer, my biggest problem is dark circles under the eyes rather than wrinkles so far. It didn't make any difference to those but I do have a wakeful toddler.
Q4 as I said above haven't really noticed a difference here.
Q5 yes probably a bit firmer, I can't decide but probably at bit smoother too.
Q6 no nice comments but I'm enjoying it.
Q7 probably won't go on using it due to cost but might go on a Christmas list.
Q8 does seem expensive but I always find these things seem pricey.
Q 9 I would only recommend if I was specifically asked.

Q1. What was your overall opinion of Origins Plantscription? What did you like most? Was there anything you didn't like?

I liked the product, thought the scent and texture were lovely, but i feel it's a bit over-priced

Q2. How easy or difficult did you find the serum to apply? How many pumps did you tend to apply per application? Did you find it easy or difficult to know how much to apply?

I found it very easy to use the product, and tended just to use one pump per application, which seemed plenty

Q3. Does your skin look and/or feel any different since you've been using the serum? If so, in what way?

I haven't noticed any particular difference. I got some spots to begin with, but my skin gradually got used to it. Then a had a break of a few days and got the spots again. Although my skin is soft and feel nice.

Q4. In terms of lines and wrinkles (if you have any of course!) do you have fewer than before you started using the product? Or do the ones you have look any better since using the serum?

I haven't noticed any difference in lines/wrinkles

Q5. How about the firmness and/or smoothness (or otherwise) of your skin - has the product made a difference or not?

My skin is smoother, but i haven't noticed any difference in firmness

Q6. If you have noticed a difference to your skin, has anyone else noticed? Have you had any nice comments?

Sadly, no-one has made any nice comments!

Q7. Do you think you will continue to use Origins Plantscription after the trial or not? If yes, why? If not, why not?

I would be tempted, but the price puts me off. As I mentioned, I got spots to start with (I've noticed this with other origins products like make a difference) but they calmed down, so I think it would be a long term investment of always using it.

Q8. The RRP of Origins Plantscription serum is £46 - do you think this represents good value for money or not?

I think it's a bit overpriced, although it's definitely more of a luxury product than Boots Protect and Perfect.

Q9. If it came up in conversation, do you think you'd recommend Origins Plantscription to others? If yes, why? If not, why not?

I'd be more tempted to recommend my usual Origins products which i think are amazing... I'm less impressed by Plantscription. On the other hand I think Night-a-mins, Have a nice day, Ginger souffle, modern friction and never a dull moment are the best money can buy grin

Q1. What was your overall opinion of Origins Plantscription? What did you like most? Was there anything you didn't like?

It was was easy to apply. It was a bit watery.

Q2. How easy or difficult did you find the serum to apply? How many pumps did you tend to apply per application? Did you find it easy or difficult to know how much to apply?

I used two it was easy to apply.

Q3. Does your skin look and/or feel any different since you've been using the serum? If so, in what way?

No difference in my skin at all.

Q4. In terms of lines and wrinkles (if you have any of course!) do you have fewer than before you started using the product? Or do the ones you have look any better since using the serum?

I felt my wrinkles (not that I have many of course!!) where more noticeable than when I used my normal products.

Q5. How about the firmness and/or smoothness (or otherwise) of your skin - has the product made a difference or not?

No difference

Q6. If you have noticed a difference to your skin, has anyone else noticed? Have you had any nice comments?

No difference. No comments.

Q7. Do you think you will continue to use Origins Plantscription after the trial or not? If yes, why? If not, why not?

No I will be sticking with what I already use.

Q8. The RRP of Origins Plantscription serum is £46 - do you think this represents good value for money or not?

Very expensive.

Q9. If it came up in conversation, do you think you'd recommend Origins Plantscription to others? If yes, why? If not, why not?

I would say it didn't work for me but it may work for them.
