Review: Dr. Andrew Weil For Origins Mega-Bright SPF 30
Since I am nearing the end of my current daytime moisturizer which is the Orgins Dr. Andrew Weil for Orgins Mega Bright SPF 30 moisturizer, I thought I would do a review. This moisturizer claims to lighten dark spots and and prevent further discoloration of the skin. According to the Sephora website, It is formulated with rosa roxburghii, white peony and melanin-inhibiting palmaria.
One of my major skin care concerns is hyper-pigmentation left behind from previous breakouts. Because of this, I wanted to get a daytime moisturizer with an SPF to prevent further discoloration and help the healing process. So when I came across this particular moisturizer I figured I would give it a go since it is suppose to help with pigmentation and it contained an SPF.
First lets start of with the smell, it does have a scent but it is nothing overpowering and I for one really enjoy it. The scent doesn't linger at all and after application I rarely ever smell. The consistency is more on the thicker side, which allows for it to be is pretty moisturizing. Once you apply it your face isn't left sticky or overly shiny and it creates a good base for your foundation. Overall, the product itself is good. If you are looking for a simple daily moisturizer and have dry skin then this one is a good way to go. The only complaint I would have is the whole "Mega Bright" aspect, over the course of me using this product, I never found my skin to be any brighter than usual nor did I see it helping my hyper-pigmentation. I would say this is where the product fell short for me because it was basically the reason I purchased this particular moisturizer. However, it did a good job moisturizing my skin and I definitely did enjoy using it as a daily moisturizer and it never broke me out (works well in the heat too!).
Considering skin care is so personal and what may not work for me may work for you. I would definitely suggest hitting up Sephora and trying a sample of the moisturizer out for yourself. Especially if you're in the market for a new one and were considering this one. And as always, if you have any questions leave them down below.
