So far, great!!
Purchased

I started using this moisturizer along with the Checks and Balances face wash from Origin. So far they are working great together. My skin is clearer. The few little break outs I had have cleared up. I love the smell, it is fresh with a little citrus. My skin feels smooth and not greasy. And a little goes a long way.

Oily

This made my face oily and breakout within a day after I used it. My skin was definitely not a fan.

Not for me
Sampled

The scent was fresh but this was just too golden of a shade for my pale skin. I also thought it was a tad too greasy feeling.

I really like Origins as a brand, but there are some products that work for me and some that don't. This is in the second category. I think a lot depends on your specific skin tone and color. So, I would definitely recommend requesting a sample first prior to buying a full version. I like the idea of illumination, and it does make you feel more energized (near your eyes). For those people whose dark circles are caused by not enough moisture, than this will definitely help.

Bad reaction
Purchased

I have fair, sensitive, combination skin. I liked the scent of this moisturizer and the light texture that makes it glide onto skin comfortably. I wanted to love this moisturizer. However, after only a couple of uses my entire face reacted with a rash-like breakout. So, something in it did not agree with my skin. Disappointed.

Don't see what all the fuss is about
Purchased

The product description made this sound amazing and so did all the reviews. Like it was a miracle worker of a product. I got on the waitlist when it sold out and purchased it as soon as it came back. I have combination skin so hardcore. It's super oily but it can get really dry and flaky too. I loved the smell, but I didn't like the gel like texture or how tight it made my skin feel.

OK but not great
Purchased

Refreshing feeling initially, but it doesn't improve the quality of my skin.

Not a great moisturizer for girls with rosacea.

Too harsh for me :{
Purchased

At first, I loved this moisturizer. It was light, smelled like creamsicles, and was a nice consistency... almost like a gel. However, after using it three times, day/night, I went to use my Clarisonic tonight and had to stop half way through because my face burned so much. I went into my room and all below my eyes like on the tops of my cheekbones was red and puffy. I put on some Dr. Jart Cerimidin cream, which is my holy grail for my sensitive or dry patches, and it stung so bad!!! After about an hour or two the swelling has gone down, but something in this product was too harsh for my very sensitive skin :{ I also don't think this is very good for moisturizing... my skin has been kind of flaky and dry feeling since using it.

Overrated

I think this product has been hyped up too much. Instead of an energy boosting moisturizer it's more like a tinted moisturizer. It felt great when I first put it on but a few hours later my face was very shiny! I usually don't have an issue with shine. Overall the sample size was very small and I was not impressed, next!

Meh

I didn't notice any "energizing" properties on this moisturizer. It worked alright, but it doesn't necessarily do what it says it does.
