Rated 4.16 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Prefer the previous SPF25 APW Moisturizer
I have used the A Perfect World Age-Defense w/ White Tea moisturizer for years; however, it used to be SPF25. When I went to purchase again I found that it was now reformulated as an SPF40. I placed an order, waiting for it to be back in stock, and finally received. This new formula is definitely heavier than the previous version. It also smells more like sunscreen. My face doesn't feel greasier by any means but I can tell that its a thicker moisturizer than the previous version. I love Origins products and as I've had skin cancer removed from my face I understand the importance of a high SPF. But I have to admit I liked the texture and smell of the older version. I would've given the older version 5 stars.. this one will only get 4. However, I'll still purchase this new one because I need SPF in my moisturizer and Origins doesn't clog my pores or feel heavy on my face.
Most Helpful Critical Review Reformulation Is Awful
While it's great that they boosted the SPF from 25 to 40, they totally ruined the formula in the process. The old SPF 25 formula felt like a normal moisturizer and sunk into my skin beautifully. This just feels like yet another greasy sunscreen, and it stings on my sensitive skin. Devastated that Origins ruined my Holy Grail moisturizer, and desperately want the old formula back.

This was my first time using an Origins product and I was deeply impressed. I love that it includes spf 40 so that I don't need to layer on sunscreen on cloudy days. My skin is normally on the drier end and I felt that this moisturizer was great at soothing and moisturizing my face without feeling greasy. I think I would have to use this product for a longer time period to notice any potential anti-aging effects.

I'm already a big fan of Origins products, so I wasn't surprised that I loved this moisturizer. I found it to be very moisturizing, not greasy, which is something I look for with my oily skin. It also smells great!
Emily from Columbus, OH
To say I'm obsessed with this moisturizer would be an understatement!! It feels so thick and luxurious. I love that it has SPF 40 in it and the smell is refreshing and light!
Great moisturizer and SPF
Kaylay from MN
I've been looking for a really good moisturizer with SPF for a while and when this one came to my door I was so excited because it had anti-aging remedies in it. Super smooth to put on and long lasting. Would recommend to anyone!
Almost a perfect moisturizer!
Monica M from California
Let me start off with saying I LOVE Origins!
This moisturizer is really good; many different skin types can use it: Normal, Dry, Oily, and Combination. It's main benefit it Pollution Protection and it's main ingredients are White Tea, Cranberry Blend, and Edelweiss Complex.
Overall, my skin felt refreshed after using this product and felt hydrated. I just wish it had more vitamin C incorporated!
Really solid day time moisturizer!

Very moisturizing. Does leave you a little shiny but most SPFs do.
Jamboree98 from Lafayette, Louisiana
I really enjoyed this moisturizer. It had a nice consistency and kept my skin feeling plump, moisturized, and smooth for hours in the harsh winter air.
Great SPF Moisturizer
Rosie from Los Angeles
The moisturizer is also chemical sunscreen. It has many natural ingredients. It's thicker than other type moisturizers that I normally use. I prefer light weight moisturizer. However, this is good for winter use.
Hometownmomma from Ohio
I really like this moisturizer! Love that there is spf in it and it's very lightweight. Makes my skin feel so smooth and evens out my skin tone. I highly recommend this product!
Great for skin in the sun
Ridha from Texas
I am always outside, and I struggle to find a good SPF and moisturizer for my face. This product does it all for me and keeps my dry skin very hydrated.
My new fav
Syder23 from New York
I am so glad I got the chance to try this moisturizer. I have dry skin especially during the winter time and this moisturizer sinks right into my skin and leaves it hydrated and moisturized. I also love that it already has spf in it so extra protection for the skin.
Bobbi I from Spokane WA
The ORIGINS A Perfect World Moisturizer smells incredible. When you first open the jar, you can smell the lovely white tea. The moisturizer itself is packed with SPF but don't worry - the white elixir melts fast into your face. The moisturizer feels thicker than a majority of them without feeling too heavy for all year use.
Cc from Ohio
It's been really good, it's a thicker moisturizer. A little goes along way. It smells wonderful, and doesn't leave the skin feeling greasy!
Cynn.vxo from East Elmhurst, NY
This cream is pretty thick so I wouldn't recommend it if you have oily skin. A little goes a long way and perfect for the winter season. I like that it doesn't have an overpowering scent like some moisturizing creams do.
Must have in the skin care routine!
kwiggs from Utah
This is a great moisturizer! I use this every night and wake up with smooth skin! It is not sticky upon application and has a subtle fragrance. Very moisturizing especially i am in a dry place
Alyssa from New York
This product has perfect in the name and it does not disappoint! Just the right amount of moisture to leave skin nourished but not oily. Absolutely love!
catgirl from NY
I love its design of combining moisturizer and sunscreen together. It saves time and skips an extra step of the skincare routine in the crazy busy morning. Besides, it has spf40, which will pretty much be enough for my whole day's protection even if I do some outdoor activities. It feels right to use in this cold winter time and it hydrates my skin giving a lot of moisture. It also contains anti-aging ingredients. What can you ask for more? Love it. I recommend it to people who are like me feeling grateful to be able to sleep five more minutes in the morning because of this product.
Light morning moisturizer with SPF
Alice from Maryland
This is the first moisturizer I tried with white tea. It is super light and oil free. Love how this feels on the skin and how it has such high SPF to protect my skin in the morning.
Dana from NJ
I really like this moisturizer a lot especially because there is sunscreen in it. I look for moisturizers that have sunscreens In it and this one is definitely a good choice. It does start off with a white residue but then it blends and completely into your face. It is not too thick and I would definitely recommend it. You got a lot of product in the container as well.
CZWATS from Arizona
I love this SPF, it makes my skin look beautiful, radiant and it is very soft to the touch. The only downside to this is that it does make my skin a bit oily, if you don't mind that then this is definitely a great moisturizing SPF. I do recommend trying it, it is a great product and the price is reasonable.
Good SPF protection
Sherrio from Avocado Heights
I'm very excited to try this as anything tea infused is very exciting to me. The cream itself is on the thicker side, but it doesn't feel heavy. It absorbed fast with a light sheer on my skin. I love the fact that it has such a high SPF level, so that I can use it as sunscreen during my workdays when I don't get too much outdoor exposure. My only confusion is that is this more of a moisturizer or sunscreen? It says moisturizer in the name, but the drug facts on the box seems to be indicating differently.
Exactly What We Needed...
Angie from Arizona
Yesterday morning my husband asked me if I could find him a sunscreen for his face that had at least 30 SPF that didn't make his face feel greasy. I thought about it for a moment and then it occurred to me, I had just put my own A Perfect World sunscreen with plenty of SPF to meet his requirements, and living in such a dry climate and having dry/combination skin myself I had been using this since this last Christmas and had not only seen an improvement in my skin, but realized--it's not greasy! And I would agree with another reviewer, that A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY--it is very thick and I learned after the first time using it that I could use a fraction of the amount and get the job done. Now I only use a dab (maybe two if I want to cover my neck as well). Anyway, I shared a little with my husband that morning and he put it on and seemed pleasantly surprised. He didn't ask for it again this morning (but I have a feeling he went ahead and used it this morning, based on his reaction yesterday). Now I just wish there was a family "multi-user discount". 😂
This is great for acne-prone skin
MelD from Texas
I love this product, have been using it for years. I really do feel like it is a preventative in keeping your skin looking younger. I have suffered with acne since I was a teenager, and at 40, I still get breakouts but this does not break me out. I also have dry skin and it keeps me moisturized. I also use the cleanser as well. Smells very nice. I just wish they would provide more product for what you pay because it is expensive.
Burns my eyes
Mitzi from Kansas City, MO
I've been an Origins customer for decades mostly because "Make a Difference Plus" was such a fabulous moisturizer. It's now been discontinued so I tried "A Perfect World" and am so disappointed. The cream sits on the surface of my face and is slow to absorb. My face stays shiny but my skin feels dry. Worse, if I accidentally touch my face during the day, my eyes start to sting and tear up...which it has been doing for the last 20 minutes (again). Origins, please bring back "Make a Difference Plus" moisturizer. Otherwise, there is no point in me continuing to be a customer.
Zehra from New York
I have oily skin and I am 36 years old. I bought the biggest size and I was really excited to use it. I used it regularly everyday after cleansing. After that if I touch my face it start coming off like some kind of dirt sticking to my face. Very dirty and sticky look after I applied it on my face. Had to throw it away. Never buying and never recommending. Thank you.
