It smells nice and sinks in quickly. ..but that's about it. I used this for a month and saw nothing impressive nor is it moisturizing enough for the winter.

I just used this after a facial and I quite like it. It's very soothing and completely soaks in immediately, and it leaves my skin hydrated and smooth but not greasy or sticky at all. It's very good. It has a citrusy scent and a little goes a long way. I would recommend this to others and would purchase it again!

LOVE THIS! My skin reacts very easily to most products and i breakout horribly, but this doesn't break me out at all!
It doesn't feel greasy on my skin even though i use the regular and not the oil free version.
it sinks right into my skin and leaves my skin moisturised all night. Love it.

I'm a drugstore kinda gal for most of my skincare. I was searching for a better moisturizer for winter months to really hydrate my skin, as well as provide anti aging benefits as I am 27 now, and figure better start preventing now. Love the smell of this project and the moisture. It doesn't seem to aggravate my skin (I have oily, acne prone skin with hormonal breakouts). Wish it was cheaper but it was a splurge item and I feel it was worth it.

A while back, I purchased the Starting Over Eye Cream and I'm very pleased with that product. I've been searching for a less costly night cream to use in place of my Clarins Super Restorative. It's a nice cream, to be sure, but it's not "nice enough" to justify the ridiculous price tag. So I began my search and decided to give the Starting Over moisturizer a try. I have to say I am reasonably pleased with this product, though it is not as richly moisturizing as I had hoped it would be. It is wintertime where I live and the cold weather combined with indoor heating means I need something a bit heavier duty than this cream, though I think it will actually be perfect in spring and fall. For now, I'll probably use it in combination with one of my Clarins facial oils. I think they make this in a lighter, "oil free" version but I was very careful not to get that one but still, this could be a bit more rich and moisturizing.
As I purchased this with my Shoppers Drug Mart points, the price was great too (as in "free" - can't get much better than that) but even at regular price, this cream is a far less costly option compared with Clarins.

I have acne-prone skin and had no problems with the oil-free version breaking me out. The smell did not bother me. I wish it was in a squeeeze tube rather than jar though. I recommend this product but personally will be sticking with Origins VitaZing because I prefer the slight tint.

I really liked this cream! I can't say I saw any anti-aging effects from it, but I would wake up in the morning and my skin had the most amazing glow. And this is with me only using it as a day moisturizer! It even mixed well with foundation to make a nice tinted moisturizer. The only thing I didn't like about it was that there was no SPF. I took off one lippie for that. But if an Origins counter was around and I needed moisturizer, I would definitely get this again.

I received a free full-size sample from Sephora, and initially didnít like its horribly strong orangey smell and put it away. I recently started using it again while contemplating my next skincare purchase.
After two weeks straight of using just this product, my skin looks visibly better. My skin feels firmer and the skin tone is even out nicely. It has very nice texture and absorbs very quickly into the skin. I always have clear skin, but it now got much better to the point that it looks like Iím wearing foundation/BB cream without wearing one :)
I still canít stand the smell, but put up with it because the product itself is great. I am also not sure whether it will be moisturizing enough in the winter. I may have to add another moisturizer into my routine if I am going to use this product in the winter.
Overall, I am very satisfied with it, and will re-purchase.

A bit greasy but does the job of keeping my skin hydrated. It wasn't the luxurious treatment that I was looking for but it was an ok buy for me. If I don't find something better I would stick with this. It's that type of thing.

I love this. It is a great moisturizer for both day and night. I use it on my under eyes and entire face at night, and under my makeup during the day. It smells amazing. Obviously you get what you pay for, but for my age and what I was looking for, this is great. If you are looking for something more clinical, I'd suggest shelling out more money for a different product. My skin feels so moist and healthy after using this which is what I was looking for and expecting.
