Allergic Reaction

I bought this awhile ago because of great reviews. I received an allergic reaction to using this product. I've never had any type of reaction to using moisturizer before. I do not recommend this product.

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
Sampled

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.

Not for me
Sampled

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.

Just makes my undereyes shiny

I've been using this for 6 months, and all it does it make my undereyes look dark and shiny instead of dark and matte. The moisturizing it gives me is okay, but I have to wait quite a while for it to stop being tacky enough that I can put my makeup on over it. Plus once I do, I find my makeup caking. I really wanted to love this, but it just didn't do anything for me.

I'm more than halfway through this jar and there have been many times where it hasn't even felt like I've applied it. My skin will feel dry like an hour later. I was hoping for a great citrus-smelling gel, but this didn't even deliver that.

Just an average moisturizer
Purchased

After reading all of the reviews for this product I really wanted to love it, but I have to say that this moisturizer is just plain "average."

First of all, this moisturizer did not absorb very well. I would apply the product and 20 minutes later there would still be a slightly tacky residue left on my face. I have also noticed that this product does not moisturize very deeply and has left my skin dry on many occasions. I would recommend this product if you are looking for a very light day moisturizer.

One thing that I did really enjoy about this product is the delicious, orangey scent! It was very fragrant but was never overwhelming.

Bottom line: Avoid if your skin tends on the drier side, great smell, may leave tacky residue

Bought full size version
Purchased

I bought the full size version of this without sampling because I was in desperate need of a moisturizer and I felt like I generally trusted the brand. This was the worst purchase I've made on BB, which goes to show that the sample model works. The smell of this moisturizer reminds me of orange candy. It's something I'd give to a kid--not sophisticated at all. This may be in my head, but I also feel like because the smell is so artificial, I am smearing a bunch of chemicals on my face. I would return if it weren't a hassle.

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.
