My Thoughts:

It’s a cream in the jar, a serum when I pick up product with my fingers, and a gel as I massage it on my face. I’m going to go out on a whim saying it changes its consistency because of the warm from my hands and face, but this is the coolest hybrid formula I’ve ever used. It feels so incredibly cooling on my skin and absorbs quickly saving me time so I don’t have to wait for my skincare products to dry so I can apply my makeup. Due to the awesome, thin, fluid-ish formula, it feels so light on my skin, yet keeps my skin hydrated all day! I’ve read some people are upset about this not having any SPF in the formula considering it is a day cream, but I’m not because I think that would take away from the yummy, citrus smell. Speaking of scents, I LOVE how invigorating the scent is and the smell lightly lingers throughout the day if you don’t wear any makeup over it. The citrus scent is so awesome that it genuinely makes me excited to use this product every day. It’s light, yet incredibly hydrating, works well under makeup, and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. It doesn’t matter what formula I use (CC Cream, Tinted Moisturizer, Foundation, etc.), the results still are pretty awesome because it holds up so well under any look I create. I was surprised how much I fell in love with this product considering I usually go for something that also helps with other concerns, but this is so great that I’m keeping it in my regimen permanently. I received this full-sized product from Origins through Influenster and wanted to try it out for at least a month to see accurate results before I reviewed it. I LOVE that they packaged this in a jar! Making products arthritis-friendly wins big brownie points with me and it makes for a sturdy jar to repurpose. Due to the scent being so invigorating, I don’t recommend using this product in the PM even though the company suggests it. The smell will cause a reaction with your nervous system putting you in symapthic system (fight or flight). Not that it’ll give you the same results as a shot of adrenaline, but the smell will cause your brain to release hormones that wake you up, instead of helping you relax and ready for bed.
