Current Obsession: Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins's Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Treatment Lotion

Current Obsession: Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins's Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Treatment Lotion(Source: Thinkstock, Origins)I've been a devoted facial mist user for the better part of a year now and swear that spray toners have transformed my complexion—not only does my skin feel balanced and hydrated, I actually can't remember the last time I had a breakout. I'd heard that liquid toners boasted the same benefits and though I've tried a handful, I ultimately saw no reason to switch over to these cotton-pad–dependent varieties. Why put in more effort when a simple spritz will deliver the same results?

Then I came across the Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Soothing Treatment Lotion ($31) from Dr. Weil for Origin's newly reformulated Mega-Mushroom Skin Relief Collection. Designed to protect skin from the damage caused by internal stress and the environment around us, all of the line's products contain ingredients used for thousands of years in Chinese medicine, such as sea buckthorn berry and a trio of indigenous mushrooms. While the collection's silky smooth eye serum ($46) gets honorable mention, it was the toner I kept coming back to above all.

Whether my skin is feeling oily or dehydrated, a swipe of the soothing solution restores it back to its optimal baseline, leaving my face feeling refreshed and calmed. And although I normally am not a fan of earthy scents—it's usually enough for me to give a product the boot—I actually enjoy the toner's spa-like, herbaceous fragrance. Against all odds, this tonic has earned a permanent spot in my medicine cabinet—and I haven't touched a face mist since.
