Most Helpful Positive Review I do buy this product again and again
I've been using the product for some time now on my 66 year old skin (which is not yet very wrinkled, except when I smile). It's my go-to. It's creamy enough to feel moisturizing yet not heavy. (I use Powerful Lifting for night time).
Most Helpful Critical Review bring back the old formula
It took forever for me to find a moisturizer that worked well with my skin. The old formula was perfect. It was light but very moisturizing. It absorbed quickly and did not feel greasy at all.
I don't know what led Origins to believe they had to mess with a perfect thing, but they did indeed make a mess of it. This formula is noticeably heavier. It sits on top of my skin, and my skin has a greasy shine to it after I put it on. I used it 30 minutes ago, and just went to check in the mirror, and yep, still shiny. It almost feels like a night cream, rather than something meant to be used during the day.
About the only good thing I can say about it is that when they were mucking around with it, at least they didn't add any obnoxious scent. If anything, this formula has even less of a scent than the old one.
Origins, please bring back the old formula. Yeah, yeah, I did the chat, and "most up-to-date advancements" and blah-blah-blah, but your customers are loyal to the old formulation of this product for a reason. You could have introduced another line to incorporate your new playthings, but instead you've pushed away this longtime fan, and a number of others. Telling us "it's better" when it's clearly not is not good customer service.
This one is getting returned.

I love Origins products and never had a problem before. The product smell great and it is very moisturizing but left my skin a bit red and with tiny bumps.
Love it, Best moisturizer
Roseanna from Texas
I started using this product when I was 25 and still love it today. It's been almost 20 years later, I am now a grandmother and people still think I'm in my 20's. I have tried other products Including some very expensive French moisturizers but always ended up coming back to this one. I love how my skin feels after applying and have never needed to use foundation. I have very few wrinkles and plan to continue to use this product for as long as they carry it.

Love love love this product. My go to for the last 4 years.
Great for combo soon
Jengy from Seattle
I have a shiny forehead. This, of all the stuff I've tried thusfar, leaves me with very little oil there. Feels great!
Tamara from Little Rock, AR
I love this moisturizer because it's light but moisturizes well. Love the smell of it and keeps your skin feeling smooth. My fave moisturizer thus far
Great Spring / Summer Time Cream
G.I Jen from Arlington, VA
This is a nice product for Spring and Summer time, it goes on smooth and feels great on the face all day. I do not recommend this during the dry East Coast winters, but wonderful for all other seasons. Not greasy, very moisturizing.
DO NOT BUY IF YOU HAVE EVEN REMOTELY ACNE-PRONE SKIN
Kerin from Columbus, OH
I purchased this moisturizer about one month ago and have been using it every morning. It is the only thing in my facial routine I have switched and since then, my skin has returned to looking like it did when I was 18: clogged pores, acne, etc. I don't consider myself to have acne-prone skin anymore, but this moisturizer has brought out the worst in it. I will NEVER buy again and strongly discourage anyone with even remotely sensitive or acne-prone skin from doing so.
Good cream I love it
Joy from Europe
I had an oily skin with acne for the pass few years (since I was 20, before I had a completely clear skin), I've started to use the product a year ago, and I have seeing a big change. The cream controls my oily skin and made the texture more smooth. I still have acne during the time of the month, but combining this cream with other cleaning products helped me very much also not to wear any makeup anymore.
Alie from New Jersey
This is by far the best moisturizer that I have ever used.
I LOVE LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!!!
Alana from New York, New York
I wish I had discovered this product sooner. My skin in recent years became very very dry and this
product lights up my skin and makes it feel soft and moist.
My Go To Moisturizer!
Chris J from VA
I love this moisturizer my wife had got it for me, I ran out and knew I had to get more. I can feel and see a clear difference in how healthy my skin is. It is not greasy and absorbs for great hydration.
Madison23 from Georgia
I have been using this for years. It seems to be the only moisturizer that doesn't break out or inflame my super sensitive skin. Every time I try something new I always end up ditching that and coming back to this moisturizer. It makes my sensitive acne prone skin soft and balanced. Please never stop making this!
Culprit behind my breakouts
Kitty from Fresno, CA
I just got this product 2 weeks ago and it's already wreaking havoc on my face. Especially on my chin and cheek areas. I will continue to use this product on my forehead since I haven't seen any upset there and it is significantly drier than the rest of my face. I will not buy this product again.
Thankful for the Clear Improvement mask which has been combating the issues I've been having!!!!
I grew to once again love it
Jae from NY suburb
I have been using this product for years, and always loved it. When the formula changed so did the texture.I initially disliked it but as I got accustomed to it, I once again loved it. It does a wonderful job as a moisturizer and antioxidant. I have tried substitute products but returned to this one because it does a superior job.
Just not the same product I fell in love with
Unfaithful from Florida
I've been a faithful Perfect World user since 2008. I absolutely fell in love with it, the smell (oranges), the texture, how dewy my skin appeared and how my skin felt & looked from using it.
Fast forward 4,5 years, no longer the same but still ok just not what I loved about the previous version.
Fast forward another few years, what another change? Ok that's just enough now. I "like" how the last statement on the ingredients list mentions ingredients change from time to time so keep an eye out. If Origins continues to just change all the products which I notice many reviewers point out, why aren't you changing the name of the product??? It's NOT A Perfect World anymore it's different so it can't be the same product! Is this to be expected because Estee Lauder dictates this? I've never said anything but it's finally bothered me so much when I opened my last ordered jar. I reminisced about my first few years of purchases & shared with many people what I was using because of the many compliments I received. But I don't share anymore, I don't get those compliments anymore either. Coincidence? I've started looking elsewhere, sadly, for something to take your place.
Tentatively using this moisturizer...
Kara from Baltimore
I use the APW cleanser and treatment lotion, both of which I love for their advertised benefits and their soothing tea fragrance. When I first bought those, they came in a kit with the age-defying serum (I had to stop it using due to greasiness and breakouts) and the SPF 40 moisturizer (I had to stop using it due to heaviness, breakouts, and skin irritation). I got this to replace the SPF 40 moisturizer as I have had issues with SPF products in the past. This seems better, at least. It still feels a little "heavy". I can only use it as my nighttime moisturizer (I use the Ginzing moisturizer during the day because it is lighter). I love the scent and the fact that it is supposed to be anti-pollution (since I live downtown in an industrial city). I just wish it felt a little less heavy/greasy. I will see how it works in the long run. So far it hasn't caused breakouts like the SPF version, at least. Also, the fact that this container alone cost the same amount as the whole kit (which contained an identically sized container of the SPF moisturizer) made it feel too pricey. I'd love if they'd sell the kits with an option to choose the non-SPF moisturizer instead. It'd be worth it, even if I can't use the little tube of serum, given the equal price for one moisturizer vs. a whole kit.
Makes me break out
IdaBl00m from New York
I usually love Origins products, I use the face masks and eye cream all the time. But this daycream is awful, it doesn't moisturize enough and makes me break out, leaving my skin red and bumpy.
Use Perfect World use it!!
Ellue from PA
I've been using this cream together with PERFECT WORLD™ FOR EYES MOISTURE TREATMENT WITH WHITE TEA when I was in my early 20s. Absolutely the best! Now I am a little oldet but I look soooooo much younger and I truly believe it's only thanks to Origins! I've been using it for more than 10years now. So pick wisely if you want to look younger;) pick Origins!
Tenam from Atlanta, georgia
Very moisturizing. Decreased the dark patches on my husband's face.
Abell from Nashville
Love the smell and my skin is amazingly smooth! Awesome.
Ann from Seattle, WA
Not sure why this moisturizer only has a 3 star rating I think it's great! I use a portion of it and then equal amounts of the spf 40 A Perfect World. My skin is to sensitive for a spf 40 product. I miss the spf 25 A Perfect World but using both products seems to work for me.
Simple and lightweight for everyday
tree85 from Los Angeles
I love the light non-oily finish of this product, works best right out of the shower lather on and go. I almost never wear makeup and this keeps my skin radiant and feeling bright all day.
Don't mess with a good thing...
Ra from MD
Origins...the new product is not the same at all. Customer for 10+ year and LOVED this product before but it's just not the same anymore. Too thick...lost wonderful scent.
Love this moisturizer!
Kaley from Orlando, FL
I got this to use as my nighttime moisturizer and I LOVE it... it will now just be my all day moisturizer as well. I love how it smells, smooths on nice, feels luxuriously moist without feeling greasy. I live in Florida so my moisturizer cannot feel greasy and this is perfect. Next I will be trying the one with SPF in it for day-time. My new go-to Origins product.
GIRLP-3CNFO from Fairfax, VA
A Perfect World is the perfect moisturizer. It goes on smooth and lasts. It is a staple for me. I love the fragrance and the texture. It will always be a part of my routine (maybe I should consider auto-replenishment (although my husband might kill me!).
