I have a pretty dry skin overall and super dry especially during the fall/winter season to the point my eyes puff up if I don't put vaseline under my eyes before bed.
I bought this product half-heartedly since there were pretty many bad reviews and some even say it is not as moisturizing.
HOWEVER. This product is honestly SUPER moisturizing and creamy. (this is considering that I put on a toner and serum beforehand) It smells super orange-y and refreshing (i love it). It has not caused any breakouts for me. It actually made my skin feel a lot better because it gives just enough moisture it needs overnight n it does not feel too sticky afterwards. It seems a lot smaller outside, but a little goes a real long way. I have been using this for a month and I barely made a dent on it even though I use it everyday.
The only reason why I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it is too creamy even for me. It would be too dewy if I were to put makeup on top of it, which is not happening now cz pandemic, but still, I would not really use this as a day cream but this is perfect as a night cream (:
As others have mentioned, this cream smells fantastic (although might be too much for those with sensitive skin). It applies beautifully and feels hydrating the first 15 minutes, but after a while it dries up completely and your skin feels like you never applied anything. For a product that boasts being "ultra-hydrating" I expected more. Additionally, it begins to peel off your skin. Applying make up over this is difficult as the product beings to peel off when you blend anything.
All that being said, I received a refund and was told to keep the product or dispose of it. I began putting rose hip oil over the cream to hydrate my skin, and my skins looks fantastic. I must have been using something in my other cream that was causing breakouts because once I began using this, the breakouts stopped. I still don't recommend this product, but it does go to show how amazing the ingredients in Origins products are. I will try another cream, but this one certainly isn't it. It you have oily skin, this might work for you. Otherwise, don't purchase it.

This product isn't a total fail as I do think it's very hydrating and it smells quite nice! However every time I use it, it leaves a kind of thin layer of…film(?) behind? It does not behave with other products or even by itself, and definitely not makeup. So even though it's hydrating I find I have to wash my face after I let it sit on my face, which then dries me out again. I'm usually a fan of origins products but this one isn't it.
Jen from California
This cream is not moisturizing enough for me. The negative reviews stating it peels off is somewhat true. If you're using enough to moisturize as you usually do, it will peel off. I've given up on this as a moisturizer, but it's salvageable!! After doing my usual skin routine, I add just a tiny bit to my fingers and rub on my forehead, cheek bones, nose and chin, for a bit of a highlight. It's easy to use it up that way, and you're not throwing it away as many users said they did.

I've been using this product for 3 years in the morning, right after I wash my face. It's been wonderful: very moisturizing, citrus-y scent, and a creamy texture right out of the jar which makes blending into the skin very easy to do. I just bought a new jar and it's awful! The scent is the same, but the texture is different: it's much more firm in texture, making it more difficult to get out of the jar and more difficult to blend into my skin. Also, with the change in formula, my skin no longer feels moisturized: I get a taut sensation as if I hadn't put on lotion at all. I'm not sure what Origins has changed in this product, but it is a stark contrast to what it used to be. Please change it back, your customers have noticed.

I wanted to love this moisturizer but unfortunately it was the complete opposite. After a few uses I started noticing rashes all over my face that were accompanied with an unbearable itchiness. I stopped using right away.
Frannie from Tampa
I want to start off by saying that I was not going to order this cream again due to flaking. I couldn't even wear makeup. I discovered I was using the wrong one that was the GEL GINZING. That one didn't go well with my dry skin. I have found my favorite forever day cream. My skin looks amazing, smooth, bright and my pores have shrunk so much. I will order this over and over again. I have used all kinds of cream way more expensive and I found the one that works for my skin. I'm very happy that I tried again with the Ultra Hydrating one verses the Gel one. I was so impressed with it I got the eye cream and face wash.
Diana from Garner Nc
I've been using this for a year and I can instantly see the difference. I suffer from acne which makes my skin very itchy. This has helped so much because when I apply it the itching of my face goes away and my face isn't red anymore. I love it!
Puffi from New york
Used this up during the summer. I love the smell it's like an orange creamsicle. However, the cream makes me peel with 15 minutes. It's like once i put it on i cant touch my face at all. Tried putting makeup on with a brush and the moisturizer just made the makeup powder clump up. Throughout the day i was worried i would accidentally touch my face and then look like a peeling mess.
It didn't make my skin breakout thankfully, but at the same time I'm weary of its moisturizing benefits if it's just sitting on top of my skin waiting to be rubbed off. Also, it is very thick in my opinion and i wake up feeling oily even though my skin is usually dry. If u really do want to try out this product, i recommend using it only in the winter/colder weather.

I have read the other (negative) reviews, and have experienced none of the drying and peeling experiences a few others have reported. I love this product, and I have been using it for years. It is, for me, very hydrating, smooth, and comfortable. I smells great too!
SingSing from USA
I was reading the reviews and people where stating the burning and rashes on their faces. The positive were stating loveing the orange smell, so I read the ingredients. LEMON, GRAPEFRUIT, PEPPERMINT, AND ORANGE (PEEL) OIL!!!!! Then I went to another website and the ingredient list for this product didn't list anything, just stated how the ingredients would change from time to time. All I can say is.......be careful.

The first few times I used this, I loved it. It smells wonderful (orange) and has a lovely creamy texture. However, a few days in, my skin began to feel dry. So, I went from twice a day to three times a day. Before I knew it, about two weeks in, I was up to six times a day and my face was drier than ever. I don't know if it's the fragrance or the alcohol in this product, but the more I use it, the drier my skin becomes. At this time, I have white dead skin peeling off my face and the top layer looks like plastic wrap. Last night, I didn't put anything on my face and woke up better than when I was using this cream. So, I am going back to Tree of Life, which actually helped my skin look younger and is natural and cruelty-free.

Amazing moisture for aging skin not oily either. Caution if you are sensitive to smell, very orange 🍊 smell.
Nic from Indiana
Literally can't imagine life without this moisturizer! Doesn't leave a greasy feeling! Be careful not to confuse the other one that's a gel moisturizer because that one does leave my face oily.
Charlene from Florida
Definitely feel tighter skin upon application
Layla from Tucson, AZ
No matter how much or how little I put on it pills off without me even touching it, I warm it up between my hands and apply it quickly but throughout the day it ends up like this!

It's been so helpful for my skin first thing in the morning and keeps my skin hydrated all day.
Lia from Texas
I received this as a gift and was excited to try it out. When I first put it on my skin, everything seemed to be fine. I started getting small breakouts at first but I still wanted to give it a chance and wait for a few more days. Sad to say this did not worked out for me. I was breaking out so much and it caused some cystic pimples on my cheeks and chin. I have normal to dry skin and I have never suffered from acne or anything like that. I don't recommend it.
April from Phoenix, az
Orange cream is my favorite scent, so this is one of my favorite products. My skin is really sensitive and I don't react to this, and it keeps me moisturized. I've been buying it for years!
Megan from Tampa
I've used many different origins products but this one was very disappointing. It feels good while putting it on but seconds later my whole face is peeling and covered in white flakes. It looks like dried sun screening peeling off.
Travis from Manhattan Beach, CA
I got this cream as a replacement for the gel moisturizer, and though I like it more than the gel, it's still unremarkable.
Smells great, feels great, but the absorption is odd, almost like clear sunscreen. It does work fairly well as a day cream, but when people started asking me why my face was so shiny, I realized it left me appearing oily.
If you're looking for something simpler, this one probably ain't for you.
Jaclyn from CA
I've tried TONS of moisturizers and creams for my dry skin and nothing has helped me until I found this stuff. I love Origins brand in general but this cream is by far my favorite product of theirs. I can't say enough about it, it's the perfect cream for dry to combination skin.

Origins is not what it used to be. I used to love their products but can't use them anymore because they fill everything with acne-causing ingredients like algae extract, linalool, and silicone. Not to mention squalene, which is made by killing sharks. I used this cream for one day and my forehead broke out immediately. I'm in my late thirties and have sensitive skin, so this was horrible. Thankfully, I was only using a sample packet so I know not to ever buy this. Look at ingredients before you buy. Anything with algae extract WILL cause acne.
Ellie from PA
I'm not a big fan of Ginzing line and this one is not bad for a day moisturizer since it's not as oily. It's not very hydrating(if you want hydration use Make a difference line cream) but I like it as a day cream and use it after Ginzing or Plantscription serum and lotion.
lc13456 from New York, NY
Usually I really like origins, and even the ginzing gel moisturizer isn't that bad. but something about this moisturizer is NOT compatible with sensitive skin. my skin literally looks like it has a rash or something and this is the only thing i added to my routine. itchy, red, and peeling. probably the fragrance but i'm seriously not down with this
Aandrews44 from Boston MA
I usually never have issues with face cream causing breakout or redness. Every time I use this cream though my cheeks breakout and get super red/dotted. Going to have to throw away - would not buy again. Regrets.
