Didnt love.

It went on a little greasy and not very light coverage. I really love their GinZing eye treatment so I gave this a shot. The smell wasnt very appealing and I didnt notice much difference from my regular moisturizer which has an SPF which is more preferable to me.

Sample Review
Sampled

This moisturizer was not for me. I feel like it left my face feeling greasy and didn't set quickly. I didn't see any crazy differences in my skin like it had mentioned. The directions also said that you should apply it in the morning and night but the sample only produced a little bit for a one time use.

There are far better out there

Spend your money on more effective skin care. This is nice if you just want a moisturizer that won't be as effective as it should be for the price you're paying. Otherwise, do your research and you'll find much better skin care for the price.

This sample was very tiny so didn't really get to see if I liked it or not.

smells wonderful
Purchased

smells amazing but I don't really feel the "energy" boosting from it. Definitely very light for a day wear and feels amazing! I usually break out easily and it doesn't break me out, but it does get kind of oily.

Moderate Moisturizer, Overpowering Smell

This is a very lightweight, OIL-FREE moisturizing option from the generally excellent Origins' brand. As its name suggests, it does provide a refreshing zing and it restores most moisture lost from other skin cleansing products. But, as an oil-free option, I wouldn't suggest it for dry or combination-dry skin which would benefit from greater hydration. And, even as someone with generally oily skin, it doesn't offer the kind of conditioning, softening or aging-prevention that I'm looking for. Unlike more targeted moisturizers from Origins, this one doesn't provide much additional care.

Many reviewers like the vibrant citrus smell. I don't. It winds up smelling like an orange popsicle, and lingers on the skin longer than I would like.

Nice smell
Purchased

I really enjoy the smell of this moisturizer. However, I think it is too light for an everyday face cream. It leaves my face wanting more moisture.

smells great
Purchased

it really does have a nice smell, the package is smaller than i thought so i was a little annoyed with that. the lotion itself is nice but it takes awhile to seep into your skin so i usually put it on after cleansing and then do my hair or pick out an outfit to let it dry. Its not reacting badly to my skin so thats good, but im not seeing any amazing benefits either- so far (its been about a week)

Smells Great | Thin Consistency for Normal Skin
Purchased

The formula smelled great and was quite refreshing after applied to clean skin. I was hoping for a thicker formula and found myself reapplying it a few times when my face felt a bit dry. This is not salve or heavy cream, but is a light texture for summer months.

Smells nice

Works well for moisturizer, however have been using for 3 months and not noticing any effects. Smells nice and goes on smooth, yet seems thin.
