Mega Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Treatment Lotion (P2,100 for 200ml)
I was excited to try the famous Mega Mushroom lotion, since my face was so reactive to all sorts of skincare. Our other writers swear by its soothing properties, and I heard that this was best used as an after-active (or after-acid) soothing lotion. It's probably because there was so much hype around it that I built it up to be some sort of miracle soothing product and found myself wanting even after a week of testing.
Very good at reducing redness. The combination of reishi mushroom, sea buckthorn, and fermented chaga mushroom supposedly aids in reducing redness, something I always seem to have in the nostril and chin area. The Mega Mushroom Lotion didn't aid in reducing redness at all. I used it alone for two weeks, massaging the watery lotion or swiping it on like a toner, and I didn't notice any reduction in redness.
It does reduce and prevent flaking. On the other hand, this actually worked for me. My nostril area and my chin (which is the only area I have breakouts) always tend to be flaky, but are now smooth and hydrated thanks to the Mega Mushroom Lotion. A week before I tested the lotion, I used a glycolic acid cream to exfoliate, so I was the flakiest face on earth, and the Mega Mushroom Lotion really helped in bringing back the smoothness. I found it to be best used (10-20 minutes) after a glycolic cream to act as a sort of barrier of protection when the acid does its magic.
It truly does hydrate the skin. It does hydrate my skin well. Nowadays, I prefer it as a follow-up to mud masks and acids because of the soothing this brings.
Most Helpful Critical Review Cant take the BAD SMELL!
I admit that Origins has some great organic skincare products ...but THIS Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Fortifying Emulsion is NOT ONE OF THEM!
The ODOR is so OVERPOWERING that it makes me feel like I am applying something SPOILED onto my face.The smell lasts for about 10 minutes then it does dissipate.
This Emulsion does make your skin soft but besides that all I noticed sadly was it's bad smell.

I love this product!!!!
Kimmy Jean from Raynham, MA
I received my free sample the other day and I'm in love. What an amazing product. I definitely recommend this product. I've been using Origins products for as long as I can remember and they just keep getting better.
This might be fine for someone else, but not me!
Jan from Aspen, CO.
I have used t this product several times since I bought both it and the spray that is recommended to use with it. I don't like the way my skin feels from them - too sticky! Even this one on its own feels sticky. And my skin broke out from using them.
Great, but not for me.
Carmina from Cottageville, WV
I have combination skin, so I go from dry to oily. This product is great, but isn't my cup of tea. It leaves a tacky feel on my skin and tends to become oily. I would be able to tolerate this on winter when my skin is very dry.
Hydration and calming!!
Babs from Boston

Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Fortifying Emulsion
Telee from Wisconsin
This is a very gentle face lotion that did wonders for my sensitive skin. I have combination skin and this moisturizer is light and didn't leave my face feeling greasy or heavy at all. The smell is very faint and doesn't smell like mushrooms at all. The pump bottle works nicely. Overall this is a great face lotion for sensitive combination skin and I highly recommend!
Everything from this line is THE BEST
KMK1992 from Cincinnati, OH
I've used the lotion (more like a toner/essence), the mask, and now this, and can say with absolute certainly: this whole line from Origins is the real deal. If you have any skin concerns, especially redness or sensitivity, try this line. One or two products to replace what you normally use. Cannot recommend enough!
Dry no more!

Payel from New Jersey
I'm in love with this product. It smells like a spa and uplifts my mood. The texture is beautiful and absorbs beautifully into the skin. My skin feels moisturized after I use it. Also love the packaging. I have been using this for a few weeks twice a day and my skin feels supple.
Now part of my skin care routine!
Josix321 from NJ
First of all, I adore how this product is free of parabens, phthalates, formaldehyde and other chemicals that some beauty companies simply do not mind including in their products. Fortunately, this product is free from all these harmful ingredients. A BIG reason why I am a big fan of Origins. Now, this product may not be for everyone due to its fragrance. Personally, I don't mind it. It is not overpowering but some may not appreciate that "Earthy" smell it provides. Apart from the smell, I love the way it feels on my skin and how moisturizing it is. I have oily skin but this product does not make it look any oilier. I give it a 10/10.

This product is excellent. My skin felt better instantly. It was more moisturized and noticeably smoother. It worked better than previous products that I have tried. I would recommend this product.

I am overjoyed to have received the Origins Mega Mushroom Relief and Resilience Fortifying Emulsion! I have been eying this product for awhile and I have been wanting to try it! It's is very clean and extremely hydrating! I love the texture of the emulsion and how silky it feels on the skin. It absorbs easily and works extremely well for dry skin.

I love it and have been using it everyday since receiving it my face is so soft and clear it's a great product
Not for Sensitive Skin
Mamacita from Spokane, WA
I was eager to try a new moisturizer since I LOVE the GINZING gel moisturizer. This product smells like a spa, neither bad nor good. However, it made my skin break out. All over. I am not able to use this product, I'll stick to the GINZING gel moisturizer.
Origins does it again!
Mirandafsu1 from Altoona, AL
I absolutely adore everything Origins has for skincare and their Mega-Mushroom Relief & Resilience Fortifying Emulsion is no exception. I have been using this product in conjunction with just my current cleanser and can already notice a slight difference in my skins appearance. My skin is more supple, the scars from acne less noticable, and a renewed moisture that wasn't there before. It has a nice, light, almost natural smell to it. I really enjoyed this product!
Welder Chick from Sierra Vista, AZ
The packaging was minimal and very appealing upon first opening. The design of the bottle is simple and easy to use with a twist-to-lock feature which is great for traveling. After using this for a few weeks, I noticed my skin was noticeably softer with a nice glow. I particularly love the scent as it has this earthy smell that's not too overpowering or fragrant. I use this in the morning as well as in the evening. It works great under your makeup, especially if you have concerns about dry skin. I especially like wearing it alone because it gives your skin a natural, dewy glow. I highly recommend this product for people who have normal to dry skin. I could see this being too much for someone with oily skin though.
