Origins Plantscription Foundation

As someone who loves the Origins Plantscription range (yes, I know I'm using Laneige at the moment, give me a chance to finish that and I'll be back to Origins as it's easier to get hold of in the UK!), I'm looking forward to this foundation!

Origins Plantscription range centres around its' main ingredient 'Anogeissus' - which is derived from the leaves and bark of the Anogeissus tree and used as a natural wound healer and antimicrobial agent.

This foundation is fortified with Anogeissus, this age-defying formulation helps to visibly correct the appearance of lines and wrinkles both immediately and over time. This oil-free liquid foundation floats onto skin and blends easily, providing lightweight hydration and leaving skin appearing smooth, perfected and more youthful-looking with a naturally radiant finish. Soft-focus optics help mask visible pores and conceal imperfections without caking or settling into creases. This long-wearing formulation offers long-term anti-aging benefits along with valuable SPF 15 protection.
