DP14_69_Dr Weil franchise

Mega-mushrooms? Skincare? I sense the thoughts running through your head but it’s all beneficial, we promise! This Origins range is fortified with antioxidant-rich sea buckthorn, plus a proprietary blend of mushrooms renowned to soothe in traditional Chinese medicine – so it can only be great, right?

Our testers gave the funghi-filled range a go – will you become a fan of mushrooms?

Dr Weil Mega-Mushroom Advanced Skin Relief Serum 30ml 

“I have combination skin that can be prone to blemishes, so I used this serum whilst I was having a breakout. It did exactly what it claimed to do; soothe my irritated skin and calm the redness. I even used it post-workout when I was looking particularly red and my skin went back to normal within minutes. I would recommend this to anyone looking to relieve stressed skin.”

Dr Weil Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Face Mask 

“After a long day my skin tends to feel oily and tired but after using the face mask my skin instantly felt so much softer and fresh. It’s really easy to apply, starting as a mushroom coloured cream and then drying clear whilst on your face. You only have to leave it 10 minutes and then you can wipe it off with a tissue – mess free! My skin felt relaxed and calm and I will definitely keep using this product to bring back my skin’s natural glow.”

Dr Weil Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Face Cleanser

“This cleanser is a creamy, light consistency which instantly feels soothing on a tired face after a long day at work. It’s easy to massage in and give your skin a really deep cleanse. After washing away, my redness was visibly reduced and my skin felt really hydrated – there was no tightness after rinsing which I find with most cleansers.

“I found with regular use, it’s helped improved redness in my complexion, as well as brightening up dull city skin – which is great as we (slowly) approach summer! I would recommend this to anyone who suffers with redness or sensitive skin and don’t worry; it doesn’t smell like mushrooms at all!!!”

Hannah Holroyd – Allocator

Dr Weil Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Face Cream 

“The moisturiser was a really great way of finishing off my skincare regime (I have sensitive skin) and my skin always feels so good after using it.  The moisturiser is really creamy and doesn’t dry out compared to other moisturisers.

“I would recommend this range to everyone especially those with sensitive skin – this is a game changer. I am definitely going to continue using these products as I can already see improvements in just a short period of time.”
