I bought this product after seeing TiffanyD's review of it on YT. Then I came here and saw some great reviews on it as well. I am super oily and have redness on my cheeks and around my nose. In all fairness, I may have used a little too much of this because it is winter and I have been having lots of flaking on my cheeks and nose. Anyway, this product never fully absorbed. I am NC 35, and I didn't see any coverage at all - not even a little. After a few hours, I was a complete and utter oil slick! so gross, this is going back.

Whoo! Finally, a tinted moisturizer that doesn't make me look orange nor break me out :D
I decided to try this one for awhile before giving it a positive or negative review, since I was skeptical at first. A lot of youtubers and some of my makeup friends were raving about this product, and how nice it is on and blahblahblah. The only thing that worried me was they were NW25-NW30 and I'm a NC15 during the winter months and NC20 during the summer. But when I put this on at first... it looks a little orange, but you really have to smooth it out, like a foundation almost. You don't need a lot at all, I hardly use a pea size on my whole face, and it does wonders for my redness on my cheeks, it really covers it but doesn't cake or look orange, it just seems to mask over the redness.
I also wear a moisturizer under this, because my skin is overly dry in the winter :) And plus I'm on a prescription lotion for my hormonal acne.
So anyways, 4/5 for this product, and the only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because it does feel kinda oily after a few hours :/ it hasn't broken me out but it still feels kinda... eh after a few hours.

Saw this on yt a few people raving about it and I do really like Origins. So i decided to purchase, it was expensive (£25) around 40 dollars. It is quite a small item but to be honest you only really need a tiny amount, well I did and I'm very fair so a little goes a long way. I feel like I can just wear this on its own no foundation, powder or anything. Its good if your in a hurry. Also I find that it really helps cover my dark circles (which in itself is a miracle because nothing seems to do that! :(). I would say this is a great product however quite pricey. +

Edited to Add: i have been using this to prime my skin under my MAC foundation and the result is spectacular - ive had not one breakout, no greasy skin, and my foundation looks silky and perfect! Obsessed!! I loooooove this stuff, it really makes my skin glow and feel amazing. It lights me up from the inside out, and as with all Origins products, the quality is very high. The only reason I only give this a 4 is because it comes out a little orangey beige on my skin, but in fairness I am *very* pale - it is noticeable on the lower parts of my face near my neck which is super pale,especially in winter :) In summer, I can probably pull this off with little issue. Otherwise, I love everything about this stuff - amazing product!! I use it under foundation right now so that I can blend out the color.

if you have pretty good skin and just want a bit of evening out, this is a very good product to use. i've never tried the estee lauder daywear plus but i think this would be comparable from what i've heard of daywear. it gives a nice sheer tint, kind of of like a self-tanner for the face (but not as scary sounding), and it gives a very healthy-looking glow. the only problem i had with this (down one lippie) was some oiliness throughout the day. if i applied too much, it looked very greasy. so only use a pea-sized amount for your whole face or you'll end up looking too shiny. i'm also very acne prone and this did not break me out at all. if anything, i think this has been helping my skin. i recently had a very bad breakout on my cheeks/jawline and have been trying to wear as minimal makeup as possible to help my skin heal, and vitazing has been a godsend. it's a very good option for people who want that "no makeup, just healthy beautiful skin" look. also, the moisture and tint last all day. big thumbs up to origins for this one! =)

Love how easy it is to be used......however.....broke out my skin... Sad becuse I loved it but it's going back!!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
I really do love this product. It really evens out my skintone and i barely need any powder. The only downfall is that i need to be careful to not get this near my eyes...makes them water because of the spf.

Okay, I've only had this for 2 weeks but so far I love it! A little dark for my skintone but on the bright side I no longer have to use bronzer.. just a little power and blush and out the door.. Love it! Will update after a couple of weeks :)
Update - 11-12-2011 Wow, I thought I had updated this, guess not.. Well I used this for exactly one and month back in jan/feb '11 and at it the end of that month my skin was so bad! It broke me out terribly, now, at the same time I was going through a break up so I'm not completly sure if it was only this or the stress of that other thing. Point is, now I am way too scared to use it again but I'm so glad it works amazing for everyone else :)

I was super obsessed with buying this product! I wanted to LOVE it like all of the reviews I've heard/read. I'm so glad I put my impulsiveness to the side and got a sample to try out first. I have sensitive skin, but I really wouldn't say super sensitive. I do have everyday redness. I've been wearing this moisturizer for a few days and I'ven noticed that after a few hours my skin begins to itch. Today, it became very itchy and hurt. After washing my face, my skin stung when I touched it and my face is super red. I will not be using it again. I would not recommend it if you have sensitive skin. Definitely go to the Origins counter and ask for a sample before shelling out the $35 for it. HTH!

I really like this product. I have fair skin, combination. I can see where people would say it's too dark. I think if I just used it straight it would 'catch' on my skin in the dry areas. I first use a good moisturizer, Origins tomorrow (something or another). Great moisturizer and then I use Vitazing right after and the combo of the two give a really good look, makes the color light enough but gives a nice glow. The first few days I wore it people knew something was different but couldn't figure it out. People thought I had colored my hair and it was complementing my skin color better...or I had a good nights sleep! It's a small tube but you don't have to use much.

I love this stuff!! I have been using it for over a month now, and my skin never looked so good..not only does it even out your skin tone, but it also provides the right amount of coverage with a little glow that is very natural. I have really dry skin (especially in the winter months) so I do use a moisturizer underneath it, but it has worked wonders for my skin! I will definitely be repurchasing again and again!! Plus, it is so natural and lightweight, it doesn't look like you have anything on at all. The only downside it is pretty pricey for a small tube, but I guess if it does the job...it is worth it!

EDITED: I had to edit this because, sadly, this broke me out. :(
ORIGINAL POST: I have to go with the majority on this product. I really, really like it. The weightless feel and hint of color make it a win for me. It doesn't go on too dark for me, because although I'm pale, I have freckles which allow me to go a shade deeper in certain products and it not look too dark. I top this with MAC MSFN - light and it gives me a very nice finish. I'm lucky to have pretty good skin to start with and this gives me the perfect amount of coverage but it doesn't look like you're wearing anything. It makes my skin feel nice and soft. I'm impressed.

Sorry to burst the bubble on this one..from what i understand this is a moisturizer that when u apply it adjusts to your skintone in other words its too high tech for me:) I am a NC40 gal with a little redness on my chin,dark circles you get the picture and it came out a little white when applied. This moisturizer works for people who have flawless skin/lighter skin tones .If you are prone to breakouts i would stay away from this..it did break me out after the second time.. I will not be buying this product again..its way too expensive and does nothing for me.

This is a really great product. I had been looking for a moisturizer I could wear underneath my makeup daily that has SPF in it, but that wouldn't cause me to break out. This is it! I love the little "beads" or whatever of color that smooth out to create an even base for your foundation. The color is perfect for me (NW20), I think if I was lighter it may be a bit too dark, like the poster below me. But I just use a tiny bit and it doesn't really cover per se, but gives a nice glow. It's also great for weekends when you are just hanging out and can't be bothered doing a full face of makeup.
As I was writing this review I thought to myself, what the heck is mangosteen. Google tells me it's a fruit (this is probably general knowledge and I am clueless!) Here is an interesting article on the skin benefits, for those interested: http://www.articlesnatch.com/Article/Mangosteen-For-Flawless-Skin/514617
Kind of pricey for such a small bottle (the only reason I gave this product a 4 instead of 5), but I think it is worth every cent!

this totally turned me orange (nw15) and it made my skin seem more oily than it actually is and creased on my forehead. i couldn't purchase this again...as a moisturizer it might be okay but the tint is more than just a small color added to your skin it's straight up orange!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Blue
I tried this product not knowing that it was like a "one color fits all" type of tinted moisturizer. I was looking for a moisturizer for day (with SPF 15 or higher) and this lacked a lot of the silicones that avoid, so I thought I'd give it a try. This evened out my skintone somewhat, but I've got lots of post-acne marks that I either decide to ignore or give extra coverage with a separate concealer. It didn't cover everything for me, but it's not as sheer as some things I've tried before. It gave my skin a nice glow and made me about 3 shades darker than my NC15 skin usually is, so that's where we had to part. It was perfect in every other way, but I couldn't deny the fact that my neck/chest were still very white compared to my NW25 face that this gave me. Too bad... had to return it :(

I got a couple of samples of this and was using it on my forehead where I need a little extra moisture. It's actually a nice moisturizer -- not too greasy or oily, sunk in quickly, didn't make my skin any oilier. I was happily using it everyday until I realized that it was leaving little brown smears all over my face that dried with the moisturizer and then were difficult to get off when I started putting my foundation on. I thought I was just missing something, maybe there was dirt somewhere on my face that I missed, but no -- after noticing it a few days in a row I realized that those little brown specks in the moisturizer weren't quite rubbing in. (However, keep in mind that I am extremely fair-skinned.) So my extra samples are going to go to waste, because I'm not into the streaky look.

new HG. I read reviews, everyone loved it. Obivously I didn't want to fork out $40 for something I may not like. I was going to ask my counter for a sample (some will, some won't.) I ended up arranging a swap for a brand new one on here. Lovee it. I hate foundation, but I feel like this evens out my skin tone. I don't notice it making my skin any darker (I'm almost pale-normal skin.. giving up the tanning bed.) - Maybe if you're extremely pale, don't purchase it, because it does have some dark beads in it. - It is moisturizing (not that I have dry skin.) - I just wish it came in a smaller size, too.. for travel and for more people to try.

it gives glows, but I thing it doesn't work for very fair skin tone. I think it actually makes my skin look darker, even thong it gives a glow, but it looks more like a thin layer of oil on my face. I have normal skin, usually, if i just apply moisturizer, my skin never gets oily for a whole day, it doesn't get dry either. with this product on, i need to slightly blot my face once or twice with tissue through out the day.
I think it does even out the skin tone, but I don't have acne or discoloration, so it doesn't have an obvious impact on me.
One thing I really don't like it is that my skin doesn't absorb it well. I can rub it off, or can see strips on my face it i don't blend it super well. But it is really hard for me to blend, again, because it is not absorbed into my skin, as it is an moisturizer... if i accidentally touch my face with a tissue or something light in color, it just leave an obvious yellowish mark on the light thing... I am so afraid that someday i'll accidentally touch it with my light color cloths....
