ORIGINS

Birchbox Breakdown

In the daily struggle for contented skin, round-the-clock vigilance is key, especially if your complexion is as needy as ours. But now you can rest easy (or at least look like you do). This SPF 15 moisturizer juggles several tasks at once: It protects skin from sun damage, deeply hydrates, evens out skin tone, and bestows a pretty, energized glow. So no matter what happened last night, you’ll look you got your full eight hours.

How it Works

The headliner ingredient, mangosteen, releases polyphenolic compounds to wage war on free radicals. Panax ginseng provides a tingly energy boost while chestnut seed extract sloughs off dead surface cells, renewing the skin's outer layers.

How to Use

Smooth evenly onto clean skin in the mornings. Because the formula delivers a light, healthy tint, you can go barefaced or layer it under makeup.

A great SPF moisturizer
Purchased

I love this product. Somehow it turns from white to pigmented when you rub it on your face to give you just enough moisture/light coverage/glow. I got this to transition between a heavier moisturizer in the winter and a heavy duty SPF product in the summer. I didn't have high expectations (my other moisturizer was out of stock) but was pleasantly surprised! Origins has come a long way since I last bought something from their mall stores. Recommended.

Favorite face moisturizer
Purchased

This is by far one of my favorite tinted moisturizers! The tint is perfect, it smells great and isn't greasy on my skin!

Looooove

This is the first moisturizer I've repeatedly purchased (I'm 33 years old!). I got it as a sample from sephora a few years ago and have been hooked ever since. This size lasts me about 6-8 months. My skin tone is fair-olive and this gives my skin a summery glow without being teeny-bopper sparkly or orange. I continue to collect samples and experiment with other products, some far mo expensive than origins but I have yet to find one that I like more than this one.

LOVE

I have loved every Origins product I have tried, but this is my favorite. The tint will match anyone's skin tone. Sometimes I just use this and don't bother with a foundation or powder make up. It's a great moisturizer.

Love the tiny and what it does to my face
Purchased

This moisturizer is amazing. I usually use it on the weekend when I do not put makeup on and it just gives me a natural glow. The tint in it is awesome for hiding discoloration in your face. I definitely love his product!

The best!
Purchased

This was the best combination of moisture without giving an oily appearance. All of Origins products are great, but this has been my favorite Birchbox item yet!

OBSESSED!!
Purchased

I cannot get enough of this lotion. It has a light tint to it that blends perfectly with my skin tone making my skin flawless. In the summer I could totally wear this alone with no foundation. (in the winter I have to add a little bronzer for a little more color). The lotion is a little pricey for me, but the results make it worth it. Plus a little a goes a long way. This tube lasted me about 3 1/2 months. I would totally recommend

Love the coverage

I've been feeling pretty drab since the winter is in full swing and this moisturizer was exactly what I needed. It provided enough coverage to go without makeup, although it did make me look a little shiny (nothing a little bronzes couldn't fix). Smell is pretty neutral and absorbs fully within minutes! It definitely gave me a nice glow, which put some pep in my step!

Good moisturizer
Purchased

Adds moisture and light sun protection without feeling greasy. It is lightly tinted so it does makes you look energized and glowing.

It was ok.

Not thoroughly impressed with it. I like Philosophy Hope in a Jar a lot better. It was a nice change for a few days...
