I have been using drugstore moisturizers for ages (Aveeno) and wanted to pamper my skin. I decided to splurge more money on skin care products, more expensive should mean better right? Nope.

I was really disappointed with this product. Ordered it from Sephora and it's supposedly a best-seller. First of all, I hate the packaging, it's unhygienic. I really don't like dipping my fingers in the jar every morning to put this on. The smell is strong, and it irritates my skin, it stings and makes my cheeks red.

I was afraid this cream would be too rich, I have combination skin and on the Sephora website it's also recommended for dry skin. Not only do I have to put on at least two coats of product but it barely moisturizes. After 2 hours I have dry patch of skin on my cheeks, near the corner of my lips, on my forehead, it's gross. I also don't like the texture of this product, I feel like it simply sits on my face and doesn't penetrate into my skin.

I will be returning this product and going back to my Aveeno moisturizer. It is not the best but better than this moisturizer for a much a affordable price.

Face looks greasy if you use it in summer. The scent is as same as "checks and balance" foam cleanser, natural and pleasant. Suppose it is a good moisturiser in autumn or winter.

In my search for a good moisturizer with spf, I purchased the Sun Safety Kit from Sephora. It's an "okay" moisturizer with spf. I find it is thicker in consistency with slight white overcast if one does not take time to thoroughly rub product it the skin. Did not cause me to break out. I still prefer my PTR spf moisturizer or Josie Marans spf moisturizer.

I liked this one, but not that much that I would buy it again. It is a good moisturizer, with the great -typical- apricot scent from many other Origins products. I am glad to read I am not the only one who had experienced that the moisturizer flakes off if you don't wait long enough. Not very convenient in the morning I would say. Moisturizes well though.

I got a sample of this from the summer selection that sephora offered. I used it during the summer instead of my heavier regimen for the fall/spring. I liked the protection that it offered (spf 25, but I did not burn after spending some time outside) and I really like the smell. I am just not that impressed overall. This cream is a little bit greasy and it is hard to apply makeup over it. It also contains chemical sunscreens, which seems a bit odd for a company that markets itself as being very natural. I will finish the sample that I have, but I will probably not repurchase.

Really happy with this. Great ingredients and performs quite well. Doesn't break me out or look greasy, even after a long day. It kind of melts into the skin and you almost forget you have it on. Love the spf, absolutely awesome. Will repurchase but I wish it came in a pump instead of the pot.

Great daytime moisturizer with SPF that doesn't feel sticky/oily like other products with similar SPF do. Gives a demi-matte finish and is not shiny like other SPF products. Would recommend this!

I used this maybe 10 years ago when my skin was so much oilier. Retin-A has helped balance out my skin significantly. Now that I'm a 'bit' older, I tried it again, and it works better for me this time. This used to break me out because it was too rich and my skin probably didn't need so much moisture at the time, but it's the perfect amount for me now. I use the daytime version with SPF25. They have repackaged this so I'm not sure that this is the right version. I will switch to this after I finish up my Brighter by Nature SPF 35 as the Brighter by Nature makes me greasier during the day than Perfect World SPF25.

I don't like the tub/jar though. I wish they packaged this in a tube to be more hygienic.

Pros: It did not break me out.
Cons:
1. The moisturizer balls up like crazy!!! Even if I don't put anything over this moisturizer.
2. Expensive
