Review: Origins™ Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Advanced Face Serum

Sharing is caring!

Some skin care products are good, others just leave you speechless. When it comes to the results, the Origins Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins™ Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Advanced Face Serum just leaves you speechless. It’s so good. If it wasn’t for the steep price, I would add this to my skin care regimen, but I’m getting ahead of myself.

What is it: Origins™ Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Advanced Face Serum

This potent serum by Dr. Andrew Weil is fortified with Sea Buckthorn plus skin-repairing Reishi, irritant-soothing Chaga and Cordyceps mushrooms, long used in Chinese medicine to heal, promote longevity and improve health. Used faithfully, skin is transformed from reactive to resilient and from stressed to soothed to reveal a healthier, more radiant appearance.

This is a lightweight serum that skins in the skin within seconds. It has a light, herbal scent that dissipates quickly.

Quality and Packaging

The Origins™ Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Advanced Face Serum comes in a green plastic bottle with a compact pump. I love a skin care product that comes with this kind of pump because you have more control over the amount of product as you pump. Also, the pump has a twist lock so it’s travel-friendly! Overall, the packaging is top-notch. We go to the city fairly regularly and I’ve zero problems traveling with this serum, it’s so handy.

The quality of the product itself is equally amazing. The serum is formulated for stressed skin, which is pretty much the kind of skin I have post-partum. I use this serum in conjunction with the FRESH Vitamin Nectar Moisture Glow face cream.


I know I mentioned the current state of my skin after giving birth, but FYI, my skin took on a leathery, rough texture post-partum. It’s been like this for weeks! I’m not sure what happened, but my skin has never been this dry before. And I am drinking a lot of water these days!

I use the serum at night after washing and patting my face dry. I then apply a layer of moisturizer over the serum.

Because this product is not designed to hydrate the skin, it’s not really doing much about my dry patches. However, using this serum consistently made my skin bright and bouncy. My skin is not prone to redness although it can get splotchy sometimes. With this, I don’t have to worry about discoloration at all. My skin looks even toned.

Final Thoughts

I love this serum! It works so well, especially for skin that’s prone to irritation, redness, and/or inflammation. It’s hella expensive, but it works and I highly recommend it if you have the extra dough to spare. I suggest getting this as a part of a gift set so you could save more. I got mine from Origins’ holiday gift set and the serum came in full size, which was awesome.
