Come morning, you’re neither looking so young nor feeling so fun. Thankfully, this brightening, botanical-packed moisturizer deflates puffiness and boosts hydration for an instant pick-me-up.

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.

Good stuff

I really like this product. It helps with dark circles under the eyes. I have tried a lot of products before and this is one of the few that I has actually worked.

I've had better
Purchased

For the cost of this product I expected something different. It is not as smooth of an application and seems to leave a sticky texture on your skin. I also feel like a look a little shiny too. Once I apply my usual make up routine after using this it seems to look fine, but I don't think I'll purchase this one again.

Enjoyed this product

Smells great. Unfortunately I feel as though the sample was too small to really get a feel for the product. I got one or tow uses out of it, but not enough to tell if the product really made a difference.

Okay moisturizer, nothing special

This was a thinner moisturizer with a very faint scent. I would have preferred something a little creamier and with more scent, since once I applied it I couldn't really smell it.

EHH

This was a nice extra to have in my box and a nice moisturizer. I'm not fond of the full size packaging and would prefer a squeeze tube rather than a tub for sanitation reasons. Like the light moisture it provided for my skin though. Very nice and light weight for summer time.
