There is just something about this product I love. On my pale yellow undertone skin, it works. It works better for me in the spring/summer when the rest of my body gets really tan in comparison to my face, because I wear sunscreen. It gives my entire face a glow and seems to diffuse my minor acne scars, but not the more visible ones.
I can't just wear this moisturizer alone, it gets very oily within an hour. When I apply this in the morning and plan to wear it all day, I wear a power over it and conceal with a little bit of my lucy minerals foundation to conceal my big acne scar. If I want it to last all day, i do have to prime my nose with a mattifying primer. If I don't, it pools at the base of my nostrils, and I do not want that!
As for the rest of my face, lasting power with a powder is great. I work outside for 9+ hours a day in the 90 degree weather.
There is a mild scent, but I personally like it and it doesn't bother my sensitive skin. It is not a huge size bottle and it is pricey. Although you only need a pea size amount. My first tube lasted me about 4 months and I just repurchased.
I will continue to repurchase this, it acts as a foundation without feeling like a foundation and gives a gorgeous "healthy" look to my usually pasty face.

I used this product for 3 months before I realized that it was breaking me out. Some days this product made me look beautiful--sun kissed without an orangey tinge. Some days, like on humid days, it oxidized and made me look orange. It always came out super greasy, which I wasn't excited about but I paid $38, including tax, for this product so I was determined to use it. I found myself having to constantly dab my face throughout the day. It says "oil-free" but I do not buy that.
I do not know what to say about this product, try it! Like I said, some days I loved it and others I hated it. I did realize though that at the end it was the source of my acne (my zits went away once I ran out). Keep in mind though, I have oily-senstive skin. I would recommend getting a sample of this before purchasing it. Buy it from the Origins counter and they will have no problem giving you it!
I now use Sephora's brand "8hr Mattifying moisturizer with sunscreen." Check out my review on that for full details about why I am in love!

So I got a sample of this from sephora last weekend, I waited until yesterday to try it because i had another sample i was trying first. When i opened up the container yesterday there was a little yellowish liquid in it. I thought it was normal and just mixed it up and put it on. I thought it looked decent, I was surprised that it concealed a breakout i have on my cheek actually pretty well. This morning i put it on again, this time it didn't cover anything, i could still see the blemishes i had perfectly so i tried to apply a little bit more. I noticed that it dries very quickly, when i tried to put more on it like clumps together and peels off my face. Very strange. I've never seen any other product do anything like this. I thought I liked this yesterday. Maybe I'm just using it wrong, I'm not sure. Ive seen people say its good to wear under your makeup. But i dont see how since when i try to put more ontop it just clumps up. Maybe there's something wrong with my sample, I might try to get another sample and try it when my acne clears up a bit.

Made me break out.

I use this all of the time in the summer! I love it! The tint is perfect and leaves me looking sun kissed with out looking orange. I use this on my "no makeup" days and it gives me just enough tint to make my skin look glowing. It doesn't have much coverage so if you have blemishes you'd want to conceal. I also love the SPF. Great simple product.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone, Medium Hair: Red, Curly, Medium Eyes: Green
Though this product is pretty expensive for my normal taste, it is just perfect.
It doesn't break me out (I have very acne prone skin), it makes my face soft and smooth, it works very well as a foundation primer, and the SPF is just enough to protect my sensitive skin when I'm outside but also let me soak in a little color.
Overall I just want to hug and kiss this moisturizer, it's amazing.

I used this for two days and on the second day, my skin broke out into rough dry bumps under my skin. My skin is normal and I've never had a problem with acne or excessive breakouts. I've never experienced anything like this. I know it's attributed to this primer because it's the only new thing I used in my routine. Now my face looks like i've had an allergic reaction and the bumps can be seen through my foundation :( I really wanted to like this after hearing rave reviews, but it ruined my skin.

If you're a pale girl(/guy), you're no doubt familiar with this existential dilemma: pale skin looks delicate and angelic, but tanned skin looks sexy, healthy, and confident. So, which way to go? Or, even better, how to get the best of both worlds?
I think Origins Vitazing comes very close to answering this question. It gives you all the perks of the tanned look without actually darkening your skin that much. The color is just enough to make you look a little, well, better. I say that as someone who does *not* enjoy self-tanner or orange-colored makeup, who thinks all BB creams are too dark, and whose greatest fear is the SA who chooses a yellow-based foundation to "warm you up a bit." The advantage of this product is that it doesn't contain much in the way of physical SPF or coverage, so it looks a lot lighter and more translucent than many BB creams, makeups, and TMs. It is not mask-like at all, and it is not dark, or opaque, or chalky, or gray, or orange. It is really more of a moisturizer than anything resembling makeup, as suggested by the fact that it comes out of the tube totally white, with the light texture of your average moisturizing lotion.
This does not offer "coverage" in the traditional sense, yet I am able to use *much* less concealer when wearing this. Somehow, it evens everything out and improves color in such a way that imperfections become not invisible, but moot, in the same way that imperfections on a 12-year-old's face are moot.
The SPF is photostable and broad-spectrum, but unfortunately it's a little on the low side in terms of overall protection, especially since you use so little of the product. Therefore, I always layer this over another SPF unless I am literally staying inside all day. That's the only downside, IMO.
I have tried a lot of products in the quasi-tinted-moisturizer category, and most of them are a fail for me, including: Perricone's No Foundation Foundation, Becca's Luminous Skin Colour, Philosophy's Supernatural Poreless Flawless SPF, Stila's tinted moisturizer, Skinceuticals' Physical Fusion, Dior's BB Cream, Clinique's BB Cream, Dr. Jart's BB Creams, Jouer's Luminizing Moisture Tint, and others. This is different. It's truly a different type of product, with different results. Look at the Before and Afters on Google Images and see if you don't think the girls in the Afters are actually prettier.

Great light coverage. Scent is very light, disapates quickly. Makes my skin smoother and more even, nice hint of color.

I loved it for the first minute the sales person put it on me, evened out the redness in my face, i looked awesome! As i was paying for it, my skin began to get all tingly and warm, then started to burn. The sales person sort of convinced me it was not possible, it's an all natural product, yada yada yada. I returned it as i left the store.

For me, this product is not all it's raved to be. It's a moisturizer with SPF15, and that's all it is. I have to be careful to use a small amount otherwise I'll get greasy really quickly. I don't notice that there's any tint at all, and I would still definitely need something else on top to cover redness. I did say I'd buy it (I got a generous sample from Origins) because it does what it's supposed to -- moisturize and protect -- but that's really all there is to it.

I truly thought I would like this product b/c I am an avid origins shopper. However, throughout the day after applying this product I got extremely oily, especially around my t-zone area. Which really sucks b/c when I take pictures, I look really oil! I really liked the concept of having an spf and had a nice smell, but when I used this product, I had like grey cast of foundation on my face and it was in no way attractive. Its unfortunate how this turned out, especially considering the cost of this product. Do not recommend. Save your money.

This stuff rocks!!! It moisturizes, evens out skin tone and gives a healthy glow.

Although this makes my skin too oily in the summertime, it's my favorite daily moisturizer the rest of the year. I love the slight tint. It evens out my skin and makes it so smooth.

I bought this after seeing all of the rave reviews on Youtube. After being on my skin for about 30 minutes I just became greasy and shiny. I also got clogged pores from this. I get clogged pores from the Clean & Clear moisturizer that "glows" too so maybe that ingredient just doesn't go with my skin. I really wanted to like it (especially for the price) but, sadly, no.

Great light moisturiser and gives my skin a lovely sun kissed look. I am prone to getting spots but this doesn't break me out. Love it! Would have given it 5 stars if it has lasted a whole day but fades after a few hours.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
not worth the money or hype!
it would break me out and make me look extra oily
honestly, id rather buy a million Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream's before buying this ever again.

I've only used this a handful of times but I absolutely adore it. I like using foundation and getting a flawless finish, however I'm just too darn lazy. Generally, my skin's pretty clear except for some redness near my nose, and uneven skin tone. This product is extremely light coverage, but it does enough to give your skin a light glow. With some concealer in the right areas, it almost looks as if I am wearing a light coverage foundation. It hasn't broken my out yet, but my skin is more on the dry side and not as acne-prone. Smells alright, however it is not that moisturising. I usually prep my skin with rosehip or argan oil before. Overall, a really great product.

I really wanted to love VitaZing, but it just doesn't work for me. I have combination/acne-prone skin and this product was suggested to me by the salesperson at Origins, as it moisturizes and adds a bit of coverage while letting your skin breathe. I liked it when I sampled the product at the counter, but when I tried it on at home, it was just too greasy for my skin type (especially in the summer!) Also, it oxidizes a tad dark on my skin, although that can easily be fixed by blending. I will finish up the bottle because it was very expensive and may re-purchase in the winter when my skin is drier and less acne-prone... but all in all, it just doesn't give me the coverage I need and is a bit too greasy for hot summer days!

After hearing so much about this moisturizer and using other Origins products, i decided to bite the bullet and give it a shot. What was the worst thing that could happen $35 later, right?
Welp, I initially LOVED this product... however, we didn't end on a good note.
The tint in the moisturizer wasn't exactly flattering on my skin, it came out a little more orange than I was expecting (I was hoping for more of a neutral glow if that makes sense). But then again, I only used it in the morning before applying my make-up so it wasn't too big of a problem.
Initally the scent did bother me, but as days went on, I did grow accustomed to it. I guess it was just something to get used to as time went on. The smell was just a little too sweet. Personally, I prefer unscented products, but due to the fact that this has no harsh chemicals, it was worth getting used to.
Lastly and most unfortunately, it did aggravate my skin after about 2 weeks worth of using. Once I managed the issue however, it was fine to use, but only one to three times a week max.
When using this product - be sure to wash your hands right after! The tint will rub off onto clothing!
